Netflix Streaming Film Recommendations: Because You Can't Always Play With Yourself

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

I'm sure there's an ILE and ILF thread that's much like this, but since you can now stream Netflix on PS3, 360, PC and shortly on Wii, there's no reason for us to have to leave ILG or get into film snob arguments.

This is the thread to recommend films that are available for instant streaming on Netflix. Quality and cult recommendations are welcome as well as updates when popular films are suddenly available for streaming. Listing important info (length of film, family appropriate, etc) is encouraged.

I also recommend http://instantwatcher.com/ for updates.

Two to kick this off:

REVANCHE by Götz Spielmann - Amazing film, does great things with light and in tripping up your expectations. All show and no tell. A little over two hours but by the time you hit 60 minutes in, I think you'll be completely hooked. NB: Not a good film for watching with lil' kids or grandmas; there's a ton o' fuckin'.

ASTRO BOY - The complete original series is available! I shouldn't have to sell this but if you're unfamiliar: trippy animation, loopy stories, great character design, absurdist translation and voices. At twenty minutes a pop and fifty available episodes, it's a great one-a-day short or a good thing to catch a bit of while you rest from marathon play sessions.

hi dere: 'the guild' is on there if you haven't seen it. you should check it out during server maintenance.

i will also rep for severance, which is prob my favorite horror-comedy of the last decade. NOTE: there is a reason horror is the first thing in that description, this is not shaun of the dead type fare, NOT FOR KIDS or peeps that arent down with some fairly gruesome moments

also WARNING: BRITISH

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 20:13 (eleven years ago) link

I watched Revanche the other day due to a friend's recommendation. Wasn't particularly impressed with it. I appreciate the unadorned quietness of it, but it seems the film desperately hopes this GRAVITAS will cover up the fact that the story's kind of fucking dumb and unconvincing. Also the back end of the film's pretty much "well this thing's just writing itself!" kind of predictable. Wasn't diggin' it.

heard bad things about severance but then saw a trailer and I was like this looks goofy and a little creepy and okay

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 21:33 (eleven years ago) link

+1 for Primer (great mindfuck/puzzle movie, totally underlooked despite winning Sundance that year!) and TimeCrimes (how many good horror/time travel movies have you seen?). Severance was fun, too.

I really liked IT Crowd but it's kind of a grower and you need to accept that cheesy laugh track/live audience humor of ye olde sitcom mixed with lots of internet/geek references, down to the very densely packed set. I was amused that for one of the characters is always reading Love and Rockets throughout the show, though it's never mentioned explicitly.

I've been trying to get through Party Down, if for the sheer fact they seemed to employ everybody who was ever on Veronica Mars, but it feels like a slower, badly directed Curb Your Enthusiasm-type show. Good acting, though.

Enjoyed Jekyll, too. Oh, and Dexter's on streaming, too!

Nhex, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 21:53 (eleven years ago) link

okay this is like the first time I've encountered ppl in the context of ILX who have said positive things about The IT Crowd

I should post exclusively to this board

i've been destroying the on demand recently. gonna pick out some good stuff for y'all in a bit.

circa1916, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:14 (eleven years ago) link

Things I just watched recently that I recommend:

Encounters at the End of the World - brilliant Herzog doc
Mitchell and Webb Look: Ssn 1 - nonstop fun, y'all britishers need to let these guys come to america
Humpday - really pleasantly surprised; this is a pretty damn good film!
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog - worth a peek and short
Mongol - not much of a plot, but sumptuous visuals in HD
Two Days in April - the story of five players entering the NFL Draft
Pucker Up - whistling documentary
Second Skin - kinda fair to middling MMORPG doc, occasionally dumb as hell
Masters of Horror: Joe Dante: Homecoming - consistently dumb as hell but funny
Love is the Devil - really really good biopic about Francis Bacon with Derek Jacobi and 007
Knife in the Water - great intro to Polanski, go watch this IMMEDIATELY if you haven't already... i think this was my fourth viewing
Baghead - kinda okay comedy/horror/buddy films
Tyson - amazing character study
Louis C.K.: Chewed Up - dude is a funny guy
Gomorrah - astonishing gangster film, crazy naturalistic and immersive
The Shield Around the K - label doc
Follow That Bird - good for nostalgia and larfs and cameos
The Order of Myths - mixed feelings but worth watching doc about Mobile's Mardi Gras from black/white community perspectives

IT Crowd is fantastic, especially the second and third "series"

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:30 (eleven years ago) link

Stuff I rated highly on that other thread without rambling descriptions attached:

Shrooms (horror)
Baghead (indie comedy w/just the slightest tinge of horror)
deadgirl (amazing but a rough unpleasant ride, prob check out what i said about it on the other thread before proceeding)
fall from grace (Westboro Baptist/Fred Phelps doc)
The Perfect Witness (serial killer thriller but not in any way that you would expect)

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:31 (eleven years ago) link

Cool shit I've watched recently:

Branded to Kill: off the wall 60's Yakuza pop-noir type thing. kind of incomprehensible at times, but very stylish and fun. first Suzuki film i've seen. Tokyo Drifter is also on demand. will look into that.

Planet of the Apes: first time seeing it. much better than i had anticipated, though the the "twist" if you can call it that dawns on the viewer much earlier than it does to Heston's character. also, this film kind of runs off of frustrating the audience most of the time which is kind of funny.

Antichrist: i don't know. i'm kind of a sucker for this arthouse horror stuff. Von Trier nakedly grappling (uh, no pun) with his themes here. absolutely stunning to look at. feels like it's going to be some sort of classic down the line. well, in the way something like IRREVERSIBLE is a classic i guess.

Virgin Spring: knowing Bergman and the Last House on the Left, this was kind of exactly what i expected it to be. very much tied to its story and less of Bergman directly gettin' all existential. though there is at least one short, anguished GOD'S SILENCE monologue. not his best or most interesting, but a solid Bergmanized version of the tale.

Tarkovsky's Solaris: second time seeing this. really love it. beautiful and devastating, not as dull as i remember. the extended driving sequence near the beginning is a favorite. so eery and hypnotic. this is a movie that i should own.

Playtime: took me a while to get into this, but once i did it was a blast. apt title, the entire thing's essentially a game. spot the gag. seems like something you could watch a dozen times and consistently catch something new. the restaurant segment is fucking all time. i read there's a nice 70mm (what else, i guess) print of this coming around here sometime soon. will go.

The Vanishing: really excellent, Dutch Hitchock-esque "thriller". thoroughly engrossing with a strong, sad emotional drive. not entirely sold on the ending, but i don't think it diminishes the film.

Wendy and Lucy: kind of avoided this for a while due to its LOLindie appearance. that was a mistake. this is a really beautiful, quiet, heartbreaking little film. oddly haunting. watched it twice in two days. i dug Old Joy, but i enjoyed this even more. will be following this Kelly Reichardt.

Duck Soup: i'd seen some of this in film class, but this was my first time all the way through. totally loved it. some genuinely cutting, ballsy satire in this thing. and what a brilliant ending! prompted me to throw a bunch of Marx bros. stuff in my queue.

Pierrot Le Fou: i've seen plenty of Godard, but this was probably his most thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining. would probably be the film i'd recommend to people who are looking for a way into his work.

Encounters at the End of the World: wonderful, top-tier Herzog doc imo. alternately hysterical and poignant. i saw this a little stoned, so that might have influenced my opinion. i want to see it again.

circa1916, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:33 (eleven years ago) link

i will also def second Dr. Horrible, although i didnt know it was streaming available (Dan if you have not seen this you really should pretty much immediately)

Shield Around the K was alright, did not like homecoming at all.

Mitchell and Webb look is great but the repeat sketches start to get painfully samey

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:34 (eleven years ago) link

if The Signal is still available i thought that was awesome too.

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:35 (eleven years ago) link

btw, three MUST SEE cult films from Japan:
The Machine Girl
Big Man Japan
Ichi the Killer

You'd be hard pressed to have a more fun weekend that that.

Also, don't neglect 'Let the Right One In' if you haven't seen it!

forksclovetofu, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:35 (eleven years ago) link

haha some of these recommendations! ichi the killer! antichrist has these incredibly well-crafted imgs but its p much loathsome

which Uwe Boll movie was supposed to be good?

forks its a p fucked up movie! just thought it was a lol recommendation w/o giving any context

Lamp, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:44 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, over the last 4 of 5 months Criterion has suddenly been putting tons and tons of stuff on, it's awesome.

Gotta agree about Ichi/Antichrist not exactly being kosher recs, lol. I had to turn off Ichi after 15 minutes!

But I'm the kind of guy who would tell you to watch The Boss of It All instead.

Nhex, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:47 (eleven years ago) link

dan have you noticed yet that a bunch of the tom baker dr. who is on there?

another one if you dig docs, The Rape of Europa, which is about people attempting to reclaim their families artwork from museums after it was stolen by the nazis - one of the best docs ive seen in the last few years

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:49 (eleven years ago) link

oh also season one of dexter, killer klowns from outer space, millers crossing

First and Last and Safeways ™ (jjjusten), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 22:50 (eleven years ago) link

Okay so here's the list of Criterion films I know of that are available for instant streaming on netflix; it's awful close to a complete list.

oh and one more and then i'll stop babbling here, all the seasons of Wire In the Blood are up there, and it is by far my most loved tv show that no one else cares about at all (really more of a sequential movie-length thing about a psychologist working on super weird murder cases, its absolutely brilliantly written, acted and shot.)

...beginning on March 30 the streaming service lands all past seasons of Cartoon Network‘s Adventure Time, Ben 10, Regular Show, and Johnny Bravo, as well as Warner Bros Animation’s Green Lantern. It also will have Adult Swim shows Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks and Warner Bros Television’s Studio 2.0′s Childrens Hospital.

I can't vouch for it yet, but there's no way I'm not going to watch the newly added Nazis from the Moon Finish production Iron Sky:

Iron Sky is brilliant fun, I bought the DVD some time ago. Laibach soundtrack too.

two months pass...

Watching Roy Orbison: Black & White Night before it expires. Lots of musical guest stars in the band that maybe you can take or leave but more importantly he's got Elvis's Vegas-era backing band.

Also does some material by the other Elvis, which wasn't too bad actually.
