What I’m Watching: Netflix recommendations

I’ve been neglecting my next TV World post since there are so many crime/thriller type shows that are so good. Ideally, I’d like to break up the post according to serial vs procedural shows but it’s a bit difficult since many procedural shows tend to have a serial drama aspect. Hmm… I’ll have to think a bit more about this.

While I’m thinking about that post, I thought I’d share a few movies that are on Netflix that I’ve enjoyed that might not be recommended enough. All of these can be streamed on Netflix as of 7/20/14 (click on the posters to go to the Netflix page), and all of these were made within the last seven years.

Movies of the moment

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a film buff, but the fact remains that in the not-too-distant past, I once watched 100 movies in one year (precisely between August 1, 2010 and July 31, 2011). This is largely due to my relatively freer schedule during summer and winter vacations. When I hit my stride I’d watch 4-5 movies a week; one week apparently I hit 8 movies. I do not know how it happened. Unfortunately I studied abroad soon after, resulting in a near-drought in the movies department for three months.* My record never recovered, and as of today, I have watched a paltry 29 movies in the past year.

Let’s go over some of the movies I’ve watched recently, shall we? (Spoilers ahead!)

Weekend recap of sorts…

Hello, it’s been a while and I really have no reason other than laziness. Too lazy to take pictures and write. I took pictures of some stuff with my nice camera (vs. my iPhone) when I went home this past weekend, but of course, I forgot to upload the pictures and I left my camera at home. So I can’t even blog about the things I want to just yet. Patience. (more…)
