NETFLIX & CHILL #10


This is the story of a guy, while traveling abroad, falls for a Romanian beauty whose unreachable heart has its origins in her violent, charismatic ex. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN directed by Fredrik Bond, written by Matt Drake, and produced by Albert Berger, Craig J. Flores, William Horberg, and Ron Yerxa.  I’m a true fan of Shia LaBeouf, I think he is an interesting actor, never mind his public life, but this was a great role for him. I really vibed with the story and liked it’s development and was very impressed how they foreshadowed events to come. Overall I felt this was a solid story and gave it 4 stars, which certifies it as a perfect Netflix & Chill   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #9


A woman who studies butterflies and moths tests the limits of her relationship with her lesbian lover.

Upon seeing the previews of Duke of Burgundy written and directed by Peter Strickland and produced by Andrew Starke the film peeked my intrest. Thinking the film would become more of a sensual mystery than a lesbian love story full of fetish and submission play featuring an all female cast, I watched on. I was impressed with the locations visual appeal shot in the UK and Hungary and the magnificent chateaus. Furthermore I felt the wardrobe selection of the characters were extraordinary and fit well with the story’s underlining theme. That said, I ended up giving Duke of Burgundy 2 stars for its singular storyline yet it’s entertaining visuals and sensual wardrobe selections. The great thing is this still certifies Duke of Burgundy as a Netflix & Chill   …GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #8


Dr. Hess Green becomes cursed by a mysterious ancient African artifact and is overwhelmed with a newfound thirst for blood. He however is not a vampire. Soon after his transformation he enters into a dangerous romance with Ganja Hightower that questions the very nature of love, addiction, sex, and status. Written by Production (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I learned about this film upon seeing an interview with Spike Lee, who directed, wrote the screenplay and produced the film along with Chiz Schultz. The concept and some of the visuals seemed compelling to me. Once I got the chance to view the film I felt Da sweet blood of Jesus lacked elements that I was expecting it to have being a Spike Lee Joint. I assumed as director Spike would have shown more of his artistic flare for cinema in presenting this film. The story in itself was a definitely unique as it told the story of an affluent black male character that became blood thirsty like a vampire in a bizarre turn of events. The set pieces and staging of characters through out was very impressive, but again I was hoping for something more from Da sweet blood of Jesus. I am sure with a second viewing the film would become a bit more understandable, but at this point I give it 3 stars for being able to keep me guessing revealing a story I may not have predicted. This scoring also certifies Da sweet blood of Jesus as Netflix & Chill worthy   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #7



Based on the comic book series "The Brass Teapot" about mid-twenty year old couple who, in these difficult economic times, finds a mysterious, magical brass teapot which makes them money but at a surprising price. After realizing the teapots powers, John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill, their dream. Written by Anonymous  (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

Realizing this film was based on a comic book series told me a lot about this film directed by Ramaa Mosley written by Tim Macy produced by Darren Goldberg, Ramaa Mosely, Kirk Ross & James Graves. I thought at first this film came off kinda quiky, off beat cool, dorky nerd gets hot girl, the struggle is real kind of story, BUT isn't that what makes for great comic storylines. I do feel the concept is compelling and how the events play out you question what could possibly happen next keeping you engaged in the film. So I gave this film 3 stars certifying it as a great HAPPY THANKSGIVING weekend Netflix & Chill   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #6


Peter Devereaux is a former CIA agent who is asked by the man he worked for to extract a woman who is in Russia and is presently close to a man running for President, who is believed to have committed crimes during the Chechen war. She can give them the name of someone who can prove it. His friend says that she will only come to him. So he goes and she gets the info and tries to get out but the man finds out and tries to stop her. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com (courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I like the young versus old, master and apprentice motif to the November Man written Directed by Roger Donaldson written by Michael Finch & Karl Gajdusek produced by Sriram Das. The action, like cat and mouse that was woven into the story I felt was nicely done. I feel the characters were compelling, but I didn’t find resonance with the actors that played them. I mean Pierce Brosnan going against a no name actor come, but make him someone with weight, now you have a film I want to watch and will remember. Furthermore, I didn’t gain a true liking for Brosnan’s character as I felt I should, probably because I still saw him as James Bond. Overall I felt November man was entertaining, but not something memorable. Still the same it is NETFLIX & CHILL approved   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #5



Apprehended by the Mexican authorities, Driver is sent to a hardcore prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of 'El Pueblito'. Not an easy place for an outsider, unless it's with the help of someone who knows the ropes - a 10-year-old kid. Written by Production (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

To be honest I like the premise to this story of GET THE GRINGO Directed by Adrian Grunberg, written by Mel Gibson, Stacy Perskie, and Adrian Grunberg, produced by Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, and Stacy Perskie and the audacious adventure it sent our main character on into this corrupt Mexican prison showing both his two sides “get the money at all cost” as well as his “save the mother and child”. That said there was just something off be it the continual character voiceover, or even the performance of Mel Gibson. In just a single viewing it is hard to say exactly what it was, but I felt GET THE GRINGO could have been much more entertaining, compelling, and tension filled making it an overall much better film. So for GET THE GRINGO I give it 3 stars for it’s entertainment quality, which still gives it a certification as a good choice for any NETFLIX and CHILL   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #4


Okwe is an illegal Nigerian immigrant leading a hard life and struggling to survive in London's underground. He works as a hotel receptionist in the nighttime and as he has a doctor degree he practices some medicine, during the day, in a very odd way. Besides that he must constantly escape from Immigration officers. One day Okwe discovers by chance an illegal scheme of surgeries is being lead by Juan, his boss in the hotel. Juan quickly comes up with a tempting proposal: if Okwe accepts to perform the illegal surgeries he makes a lot of money and gets legalized situation in the U.K. Can Okwe keep his moral values intact? Written by Weslley Gonçalves (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I think many of us watch films as much for the story that is told as for the places these stories can take us. DIRTY PRETTY THINGS Directed by Stephen Frears, written by Steven Knight, and produced by Robert Jones & Tracey Seaward takes us to a place not many can understand unless you are an immigrant or know someone who is. That alone made me intrigued by this film. The tension, exotic surroundings our main character was in utterly fascinating as well as the slow and methodical unraveling of this complex love story made it an enjoyable film to watch. Furthermore, the main characters drive to do good while having a shadowed past aided in developing the film tension taking it to another level. I truly enjoyed this film and give it 4 stars, which certifies DIRTY PRETTY THINGS as a clear choice for a NETFLIX and CHILL kind of night.

A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT

In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire. Written by Ana Lily Amirpour  (Courtesy of Internet Movie database)

From the moment I saw the trailer for A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT directed & written by Ana Lily Amirpour, produced by Ana Lily Amirpour, Justin Begnaud and Sina Sayyah, and executive produced by Elijah Wood, I knew I was going to have to see it. Sooner than later I got that opportunity to watch it through Netflix. Whether it was the stark black and white visuals or at the time, my limited grasp of the films storyline I was already drawn in. Upon viewing the film I was taken in even further with magnificent music and sprawling landscapes that inspire me to keep my dreams of making a feature length film someday. This was a super sexy yet subtle love story shot in black and white, which I thought was a brilliant move. The story now clearer in my head was weird in a good way and I definitely look forward to seeing more films from this director. It was like the moment I watched Pulp Fiction or Magnolia for the first time. So for A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT I give it 4 stars, which certifies it as NETFLIX and CHILL worthy.

NETFLIX & CHILL #2



This is the true story of Oscar, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother, whose birthday falls on New Year's Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend, who he hasn't been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to T, their beautiful 4 year old daughter. He starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easy. He crosses paths with friends, family, and strangers, each exchange showing us that there is much more to Oscar than meets the eye. But it would be his final encounter of the day, with police officers at the Fruitvale BART station that would shake the Bay Area to its very core, and cause the entire nation to be witnesses to the story of Oscar Grant. Written by The Weinstein Company (courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

Understanding this to be a film Written and Directed by Ryan Coogler, Produced by Nina Yang Bongiovi & Forest Whitaker is the recounting of actual events. I appreciate the fact the direction of the film took in presenting the outcome and rewinding back to how things escalated as they did. I think the main character played by Micheal B. Jordan had a superb performance as Oscar Grant and I look forward to seeing him in future films. No matter how you feel about situations like this that have occurred in our society, as was depicted in the film, I hope we can all agree if this was to happen to someone we knew we’d be outraged and be calling for answers as well. So for FRUITVALE STATION I give it 3 stars as it sparks a conversation that needs to be discussed on some level. This also certifies FRUITVALE STATION as a solid Netflix and Chill kind of film   ...GO!!!

NETFLIX & CHILL #1



While hunting in the forest, Lord Asano of Ako and his samurai find a young half-breed and take him with them to live in the castle. Several years later, Lord Asano holds a tournament to welcome the Shogun to Ako. The night after the tournament, Lord Asano is bewitched into hurting Lord Kira of Nagato, and is punished into committing seppuku by the Shogun. Realizing that it was a Lord Kira's evil plot, the samurais and the half-breed sets out for revenge against the Shogun's order. Written by Immanuel A.  (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)
47 Ronin was directed by Carl Rinsch, written by Chris Morgan & Hossein Amini, Produced by Pamela Abdy, Eric Mcleod, and Scot Stuber. I enjoyed the authentic look mixed with the fantasy or mystical folklore, as it pertained to the dress, setting and worldly elements of that time. The story based on actual events, for me having seen similar storylines like this lost its tension and danger at a certain point and I could predict the outcome early on.

The fighting scenes could have been much more exciting, but understanding it was a pg13 film I knew the regulations. I did like the fact that they explained and deciphered, in good detail, what a samurai’s life purpose was about as I have always seen them to be very fascinating.

In the end to me 47 Ronin was a beautifully depicted film with elaborate set pieces, dress, and locations, which was the most interesting aspect. The storyline was simple and left me wanting more character development and story. With that I gave 47 Ronin 3 stars approving it as entertaining enough to be anyones choice for a Netflix and Chill kind of night.
