Netflix Instant Distractions Of The Week

Thursday, April 14 by

You ready for some hardcore movie-watching? Because this shit is about to get real. Here are the best, the worst, and the weirdest of what’s available to stream instantly on Netflix. Engage!

Watch these movies…

…Because you want to see something good:

The toys are back at it again, this time racing against the clock to save themselves from abandonment and imminent destruction. Anyone else wonder why they’ve never risen up and demanded equal rights? I mean, they have the same intellectual capacity as humans, right? Second-class citizens no doubt. And with that statement I am officially too old for Pixar movies.

…Because you’re bored:

A young man is diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to drop everything in his life to embark on a solo journey across thousands of miles of road and wilderness. Think of it as The Motorcycle Diaries but with cancer. Huh… Now I’m sad.

_

…Because you’re drunk (really drunk):

Will Ferrell makes Will Ferrell jokes in this film starring Will Ferrell. Also, that guy from The Fighter is in it.

_

…Because you want to feel well-informed about how wasteful society is without actually changing your own consumption habits:

A renowned artist joins the ranks of the Brazilian catadores — an impoverished sect of the Brazilian population who pick through trash heaps to find items worth reselling. A must-see for anyone who enjoys feeling immense guilt.
