Streaming on Netflix: Miss Lovely’s director Ashim Ahluwalia

Director, Ashim Ahluwalia—whose first feature film, Miss Lovely, currently streaming on Netflix—is not your typical Bollywood director.  I interviewed Ahluwalia last year and he was not what I expected, as I anticipated meeting the next big blockbuster Bollywood director.  He’s a down-to-earth guy, well-informed and totally aware of his field, and passionate about making movies that […]

This Week on Netflix! Jurassic Park (1993)

Jurassic Park, along with most of Steven Spielberg’s catalog at the time, was a staple of my childhood. It taught me what an adventure movie should be like in every measurable way. Some would blame Spielberg for ushering in the modern era of substance-devoid summer blockbusters, but that criticism seems unfair to me. He set […]

Yo, Marilyn, You’re on Netflix!

Don’t Bother to Knock (1952) Marilyn Monroe as a mentally deranged babysitter? Yup. And it’s worth a looksee, if only to prove that La Monroe could actually ACT. It’s the darkside of her fragile wounded sparrow persona. A noir with an insular setting, a big city hotel, has Richard Widmark in a relaxed performance as […]

Netflix Nick

I don’t think I’m capable of summing up this man’s character in a single paragraph, but we should all be on the same page here. Cage has been around forever, and though he’s been cranking out less-than-stellar stuff over the past decade or so, that doesn’t mean he’s incapable of making decent movies. I’d forgive […]

Moviefied’s Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

2015 was a weird year in television. We’re in a new Golden Age; everything is so good that it’s incredibly difficult to parse out the truly great—and I’ve never been more aware of it than now. I’ve looked to television with lethargy lately, with only a few bright sparks in between to remind me of […]

Hide Ya Pessimism: Netflix is Unbreakable with Kimmy Schmidt

Tina Fey has done it again. Okay, so can’t technically give her all the credit for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, another original series from Netflix that is giving cable networks a run for their money; but as co-creator, writer, and a reoccurring character, Fey’s touch is all over it. Leading a terrific cast of actors in […]
