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 […]

Streaming on Netflix: The Nightmare

To highlight one of the many movies we’ve covered in the past that’s now currently streaming on Netflix, we are reposting our 2015 feature on The Nightmare. The interview below features one of the stars of The Nightmare, Kate Angus who recently published her beautifully realized debut book So Late to the Party. “There’s nothing we can do […]

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 […]

The Man in Black: Daredevil Season One Recap

One of my favorite shows of 2015, Netflix’s Daredevil, is coming back for season two on Friday! A second season, consisting of 13 episodes, premieres on Netflix in its entirety on March 18. It will feature two new characters in particular: Elektra Natchios (an assassin and ex-girlfriend of Daredevil himself) and Frank Castle (the supervillain The […]

Netflix Nic: Part 2, Snake Eyes, Outcast, Left Behind

In this, the second installment of my Netflix Nic series, where I watch some Nicolas Cage flicks on Netflix and report my findings, I bring to you a decent offering from the 90s; a surprising action/drama with Anakin Skywalker; and a movie in which the film stock should have been burned like at the end […]

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 […]

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 […]

Back to Basics: Hollywood Players Move to TV

On January 11, HBO launched the new seasons of three original series. At 9:30, in between the fourth season premiere of Girls and the second season premiere of Looking, the premium cable provider will run the series premiere of its new original series Togetherness, created by the Duplass brothers (Mark and Jay). According to HBO’s website […]
