Netflix Instant Distractions Of the Week

Friday, January 21 by

Can’t pick what to watch from the Netflix instant movies menu? We’re here to help. Each week we’ll recommend the best, the worst, and the straight-up weirdest movies that Netflix has to offer for instant streaming. We know we’ve got a pretty diverse readership here, so we’ll try our best to suggest categories that include everyone. Without further ado…


Watch these movies…

…Because you want to see something good:

A U.S. Marshal journeys to a remote island to investigate the disappearance of a criminally insane mental patient, gets mindf*cked by the hospital’s staff in the process.

…Because you’re bored:

A documentary following Joaquin Phoenix‘s dramatic downward spiral into becoming a rapper version of Zach Galifianakis.

…Because you’re drunk:

A retired commando must fight through an army of easily-killable criminals in order to retrieve his daughter, who it turns out is actually Alyssa Milano before she was too young for me to call her hot.

…Because you’d like to trick a child into thinking he can breathe in space:

A young girl leads an armed insurgency against an oppressive government regime bent on galactic domination. Also, there are unicorns.
