12 Movies You Should Watch on Netflix USA in 2017
Midnight in Paris (2011)
What a magical city Paris is! Yes, this metaphor comes true for Gil Pence, a screenwriter when he is on vacation in Paris with this wife, who honestly prefers California over rainy Paris. Gil takes off at night to roam around the city and somehow slips up back to the 1920s, where he gets to meet different idols and a mysterious woman who makes him feel more at home in the 1920s than the present. Midnight in Paris is a movie filled with humorous dialogues and mocking reflections on nostalgia. Actor Owen Wilson perfectly fits in the role of Gil on this movie of self-denigration, arrogance, and vulnerability directed by Woody Allen. A must watch Netflix movies on Netflix US.
Beasts of No Nation (2015)
Beasts of No Nation, an original feature film by Netflix is not for the lily-livered people because it is deep-rooted and sobering, mostly violent but always gripping. The movie follows a young boy who has been horrendously orphaned because of a cruel militia assault on his village. He runs deep into the jungle where he comes under the influence of a brutal but charming rebellion leader of a group of child soldiers. The movie, based on a novel of the same name by Uzodinma Iweala, is a crude and desperate story of Agu, a child warrior amidst the war which is very finely played by a newcomer Abraham Attah.
Blazing Saddles (1974)
Blazing Saddles highlights the satire of director Mel Brook at its finest which in his words – rises below vulgarity. The movie is an insane mixed-bag of a satirical plot which does everything to continue our amusement and laughter except hitting us over our head with a spongy rubber chicken. A greedy businessman hires a black sheriff in the hopes that white people will drive off the area in disgust so that he can acquire a worthful plot of land. The story that follows is a total mess, and therefore the movie is so funny, but why the movie is so great doesn’t only cover laughter, but also it’s bold handling of the race. Although there is some humor that might go over the heads of many modern audiences, it is very hard to find one such funny movie that shoots political correctness so blazingly. One of the comedy movies not to be missed on Netflix America.
The Big Short (2015)
There were some doubts when Adam McKay decided to choose the funny ones, of all the stories that he could have extracted from the dolorous financial crisis of the 2000s to make a genuinely humorous movie. This sharp comedy movie with its Oscar-winning screenplay, a talented cast, and an original structure will not want you to switch off your brain, but rather encourages the viewers not to. The Big Short is broken down to several stories which are all weaved together by the narrator Jared (Ryan Gosling), a trader who crosses path with some of the characters in this rather vicious satirical movie. Another good new movie in the Netflix America playlist.
The main mantra of the growingly morbid TV networks around Los Angeles has been “It leads if it bleeds” – and Lou Bloom is all set to dish up the gore. He rambles around the streets of the city during the night with a video camera in his hand and chasing the ambulances and foraying the crime scenes to capture those footages which will provide middle-class families a chilling sense of fear on the morning news. Nightcrawler is a soot black sarcasm of the American Dream through the dead-eyed psychopathy and compliance of Lou to do what others would refuse as his ladder to success. And it is boundlessly more thrilling to watch him rattling off some business talks with absolute solemnness than the footage he captures. Mindblowing Netflix films for US Netflix 2017.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Here comes everyone’s favorite movie E.T. The Extra -Terrestrial! This downright masterwork from Steven Spielberg which is not simply a tale about an alien but also the tale of a family ripped apart by divorce, the tale about the friendship and association between a homesick alien and a lonesome boy. The plot devices go side-by-side, one complementing the other, perfectly blending – another testament to Spielberg’s flair. The movie, as a result, is filled with imagination, adventure, and marvel, but it is also one substantially dark movie which embraces the realism of a broken family. If you want to watch a chef-d’oeuvre, you must watch the film of pure magic and stranded emotionality. Cheers to all the American Netflix users for having one of the greatest ever movies on their reach.
It takes a humungous amount of tactfulness to make a film which deals with a delicate content like Catholic priest child sex abuse outrage in Boston, but the plethora of nominations and wins including the Oscars for best picture in 2016 should hint you that Tom McCarthy, the director utterly nailed it. What aids to the superb subject matter – casts that can give their best, and Spotlight is one such movie with star-studded cast working as a team of investigative journalists of Boston Globe. Although Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, and Michael Keaton are the ones to steal the show, performances from Rachel McAdams and Stanley Tucci are also commendable. Some of the content materials are heartbreaking, but the movie is entirely engaging and completely worth adhering to the end. New to Netflix USA and unmissable!!
How interesting can a movie about the life of a composer of the 18th century be? Surely not as interesting as this devilishly awesome movie. Amadeus by Milos Forman is one of the wildest risks a filmmaker can take – a sumptuous movie about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart that dares to be bold and anarchic and still earning the grandness of tragedy. The movie is not so much a biopic of Mozart, but rather is a striking exploration of the precocious one’s relation and contention with fellow man Antonio Salieri. Even if you are the one that disappears into the abyss when classical music is mentioned, Amadeus, the Oscar-winning movie, will take you on a gripping journey into jealousy, obsession, perfidy and all the basic but wonderful traits that make history so captivating. Watch this disturbingly true movie on Netflix America!!
Labeling Oldboy as just intense would be a huge understatement because there are plenty of emotions that you will need to go through while watching this movie. Your array of emotions will be stamped on and squeezed, and you will be visually assaulted for around two straight hours because such is the charm of this movie- you would not want to miss anything just because you blinked. Oldboy is a South Korean movie about a man who has been locked for 15 years in a room with no any idea why. He then seeks retribution on the captors after being released and what follows is a completely thrilling story. The movie is sharp, enticing and piled with action sequences, some of the actings carried out in this thriller is outstanding, and as the movie ends, you will be left confused and battered but always wanting more. One brilliant movie that you should not miss in Netflix America.
A small-scale movie from the now so grand director Christopher Nolan– Memento follows Leonard Shelby, an amnesiac who is desperately looking for one man who killed his wife and bludgeoned him over the head. He suffers from short-term memory loss and must perform his investigation based on the information he doesn’t remember noting – most of which are tattooed all over his body – and through photos which he doesn’t remember capturing. This movie is stated through two connected sequences, one which runs backward and the other forwards, as Shelby seeks to weave together the events. Memento is not only a unique movie with a thought-provoking thriller but also a trendsetter for most of the movies that cover amnesia as their main plot. Happy Netflix US people!!
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
To summarize in few words, The Silence of the Lambs is – involving, disturbing and frightening. It follows Clarice Starling, one FBI trainee without any significant interruption and it is Dr. Hannibal Lecter who not only moves the story forward but also opens up Clarice to the viewers. Dr. Hannibal, a malevolent but with some likable presence in the movie is only the sideshow, Clarice being in the center ring. This Jonathan Demme ‘s mesmerizing movie is all that the modern horror movies lack – one with intriguing seriousness and harrowing intensity, it is brutal, and highly manipulative which may seem morally unwarranted. Better if you watch this awesome thriller movie when it is available in Netflix America.
Be Here Now (2015)
One of the most recent additions to Netflix America is Here Now (The Andy Whitfield Story) may seem like the title of a cheesy TV movie, but is indeed an extraordinarily touchy and profoundly personal film about the battle of Spartacus star Andy Whitfield with cancer. The actor and his wife clearly gave unshackled access to Lilibet Foster and his team to capture several intimate personal moments which are both tragic and joyous. Irrespective of Whitfield’s fate, the movie portrays him as an epitome of how and why to fight for the things that you love, and that matters. Must-watch recent addition on Netflix USA.
