Netflix Streaming

Wondering what’s new for September 2014 in Netflix Instant? There’s plenty, but I’m here to give you some recommendations, since Netflix likes to make it difficult for you to figure out what’s new in their service in movies and television series.

Some of my favorite picks include Arrow: Season 2; Walking Dead: Season 4; Good Morning, Vietnam; Flubber, and School of Rock. A bunch more are listed here below. Note – some are up today, while others will be released throughout the month.

Top Netflix Picks for September 2014

  • Arrow: Season 2 – The CW series Arrow is one of the best televisions shows on TV right now, especially in the superhero genre. Season 3 is set to premiere in October, so thanks to Netflix, you can catch up on both Season 1 and now Season 2 as well. Well worth your time. Do not put it off, or you’ll be missing out.
  • The Walking Dead: Season 4 – The AMC series The Walking Dead continues to draw viewers, and Season 4 was an explosive one. The Governor played a big part of this past season and his relentlessness led to that big prison showdown. Also, half the season saw the group split up, which was a first. Lots of events in this one. Season 5 starts in October, so get to watching the previous season now.
  • Flubber (1997) – I’m a big Disney fan and went Disney crazy in the 1990s, grabbing anything I could get my hands on, including the clamshell-case VHS edition of Flubber complete with lithograph. I still have it. The late Robin Williams starred in this mostly-forgotten remake of the 1961 film The Absent-Minded Professor.
  • Good Morning, Vietnam (1987) – Another Robin Williams film, Good Morning, Vietnam sees the actor at his best infusing humor into drama. A war movie like no other, which sees Williams as a Army radio host who entertains the his fellow troops, but pisses off his superiors will the content of his show. Based on a true story, and Williams, of course, improvised a lot of the radio broadcasts. A real eye-opener, highly enjoyable.
  • Hoodwinked (2005) – An fun take on Little Red Riding Hood , Hoodwinked retells the classic fairy tale as if it were a crime needing to be solved, with Red, Granny, the Woodsman, and the Wolf being questioned by police. Flashbacks are used to show each of their point of view of events in this computer-animated family.
  • School of Rock (2005) – I’m not even gonna front – I loved School of Rock and was beyond excited to see the film in theaters when it was released in 2005. The premise alone of school kids playing rock was enough to hook me in. Jack Black stars as the substitute teacher at a uptight private school where he turns the children on to bands like AC/DC, Yes, Rush, and Van Halen. The kids form a band and kick some rock and roll ass, while Black makes us laugh. Everything Black’s character teachers the kids is in line with my rock philosophy. \m/
  • The Blue Lagoon (1980) – Oh, The Blue Lagoon, how you titillated me. The film begins with two small children, Richard and Emmeline, shipwrecked on a tropical island. They manage to survive and most of the story centers on the two as they reach puberty and fall in love. The 1980 film starred heartthrob Christopher Atkins running around a tropical paradise in nothing but a loin cloth and a young Brooke Shields wearing hardly anything else either.
  • The Blacklist: Season 1 – This NBC television show is one I hear everyone talking about. I haven’t seen it yet, but here’s my chance to binge-watch the first season. The Blacklist stars James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, who is both a former government agent AND is the FBI’s most wanted list, who eventually helps the FBI. It’s one of those criminals helping the authorities type of tale.
  • Lords of Dogtown (2005) – Before she directed the first Twilight movie, Catherine Hardwicke’s directed Lords of Dogtown, based on a true story about the Santa Monica skateboarding scene in the 1970s. Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch go shaggy for their roles as surfers gone skaters; comedian Mitch Hedberg makes an appearance, but passed away before the film’s release.
  • Cool Runnings (1993) – An interesting premise, especially since it’s based on actual events — the film takes a humorous look the Jamaican bobsled team’s first Winter Olympics competition. John Candy stars in one of his final roles before his death in 1994.
  • Crocodile Dundee (1986) – The 1986 Australian comedy Crocodile Dundee brought Aussie humor to the U.S. masses and was a box office smash. The film starred Paul Hogan as bushman Michael “Crocodile” Dundee and takes place in both the Australian Outback and in New York City. A classic fish out of water tale.
  • Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) – I really don’t go for all that Jackass stuff, but I have to say, Bad Grandpa has me in stitches. Johnny Knoxville goes through the film in his Oscar-nominated make-up as the “Bad Grandpa,” an old man being lewd and crude, with his little grandson in tow. Some of it is cringe-worthy, but it’s funny as hell.

Check back next month for a whole new batch of selections and recommendations for you to check out!
