It’s a great story with a love for the comic book that fills every shot.
“Kiss of the Dragon." Jet Li metes out some serious punches as well as getting knocked around by various bad guys, offering up a terrific action movie for a rainy day. With a villainous cop played to the hilt by Tcheky Karyo and a damsel in distress played by Bridget Fonda, you get a great reluctant hero story with enough raw action to keep you intrigued.
“Stripes." Few things can fill a rainy day better than a Bill Murray flick. With the perfect slacker vibe throughout “Stripes," you’ll find your laziness rewarded with comedy. As he beats his head against military authority with a cast of miscreants, Murray gives you a film that doesn’t need anything from you but a set of eyes and an easy laugh. The bet between Murray and Ramis over push-ups is a scene that’ll have you chuckling well after the sun rises.
“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Read the books first, seriously. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is a dark tale so engrossing that you will end up seeing the remake just to see what scenes you think should have made both films. Lisbeth Salander and journalist/publisher Mikael Blomkvist are on different paths to the same mystery of what happened to a little girl decades earlier. With a multitude of gut wrenching events, phenomenal acting, and tense action, this film needs to top your rainy day Netflix playlist.
“Tucker & Dale vs. Evil." Two good old boys head out to their new summer cabin, spook some vacationing college students, and end up terrorizing each other accidentally. Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine are perfect in their roles as good-hearted hayseeds who mean to harm nothing more animate than a six pack. A seriously great mash-up of the horror and buddy/buddy genre, Labine’s self-conscious laugh as he tries to talk to the college kids at the gas station is a scene that you’ll rewatch a ton.
