Cabin in the Woods: Netflix Streaming Surprises

Cabin in the Woods is one of those movies that you want to go into knowing as LITTLE as humanly possible about before seeing it. Trust me, if there's one movie you don't want to have ruined for you, it's this one.

If you're a horror film fan and you haven't seen this yet, I feel comfortable telling you that this will automatically become one of your favorite movies of all time.

I don't know what genre I'd even place film in, because it's so great. Obviously it's horror, but it's also just so dang funny in parts that I'd almost want to call it a comedy.

Anyway, I'm not going to ruin it for you, because you absolutely NEED to watch this. Add it to your queue here!

The Hunger Games: Netflix Surprises

Like it or not, The Hunger Games is the latest fictional universe that teens are flocking toward in order to replace their the gaping hole that Harry Potter and Twilight's exits from cinema have left. Lucky for us, The Hunger Games is a LOT better than Twilight in almost every way conceivable.

If for some strange reason you still haven't heard about what The Hunger Games is about, it's about a dystopian society, where each section of the civilization is required each year to sacrifice two children as "Tributes," who will each fight to the death until there is one crowned winner.

This movie is really dark for a kids' movie. If you have children, you should be careful about letting them watch this alone. The gore might not be very apparent, but the idea of children killing other children is horrific, and if not understood in the right context, could be very disturbing.

That being said, I loved the book, and I really enjoyed the movie. Though some might complain that this is either heavy-handed in its social criticism, or that it may be overtly copying ideas from other films, either way, this is a film that can be enjoyed by all types of people. There IS a message here, and in that regard, it's a great way to tell a story.

Add it to your queue if you haven't seen it yet. Now that it's streaming on Netflix, you have no other choice! (I was surprised such a high-caliber film like this made it to Netflix so quickly) Give it a shot here!

Very Funny, Netflix

Bean: The Movie - Netflix Streaming Hidden Gems

Now I know a lot of you have never really understood or 'gotten' the humor or Bean, but I think it's absolutely hilarious, and I think Rowan Atkinson is an absolute comedic genius.

Bean has everything to do with physical humor. If that's not your thing, you might want to give this movie a shot anyway, because I think there's a strong possibility that it might just allow you to realize what physical comedy has to offer the comedic world.

Growing up, I remember laughing so hard I couldn't breathe while watching this movie, and, watching it again recently, I realized the comedy still stands strong to me even after all these years.

If you're in the mood for something light-hearted and overall, generally heart-warming and family-friendly, this is one of the greatest comedy movies you have to choose from currently on Netflix Instant streaming.

You really ought to check it out and let me know what you think. Click to add it to your streaming queue here!

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy: Netflix Hidden Gem Surprises

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy is one of those movies that I saw on Netflix and I wasn't entirely sure if it was one of those 'parody' films that we've seen so commonly these last few years in media.

I think you know what I'm talking about. Those absolutely stupid "Date Movie" genre movies (I struggle even calling them that). I can fully assure you though, that this isn't anything like those movies whatsoever. This is a great film.

This is a pretty raunchy film nonetheless, as it actually does have to do with the entire process of planning an orgy between friends.

See, the story is about a group of friends (a bunch of actors and actresses that I'm sure you'll recognize from various areas. They've been hanging out and partying at the main character's dad's house forever, but they've come to realize that those times are about to come to a screeching hault.

The reason for an orgy? Well, because that seems to be the most absurd, over-the-top party idea that they can think of. And what's funny, is that nobody seems to be too thrilled about the idea... but they still want to do it.

It's a fun adventure to see what they go through in planning this event, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as one of the few comedy movies I've found on Netflix that I sat down and watched all the way through in one sitting without having to take a break. I thought it was great!

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: Netflix Streaming Surprises

For the longest time, I thought that Mission: Impossible movies were actually kind of dumb. I mean, granted, the first one was pretty awesome at the time, but the following two didn't really do it for me. I guess it's been a long time since they came out, but to be completely honest, I simply don't remember anything about Mission: Impossible 2 or 3. Like, at all.

That all changed with Mission: Impossible 4. This not only is a great M:I movie, but a fantastic action movie in general. This movie completely flabbergasted me time and time again, not only for the crazy-cool action sequences, but for the fact that those crazy-cool action sequences were actually stunts done by Tom Cruise.

Say or think what you will about Tom Cruise, he's pretty ballsy when it comes to putting his life on the line (well, maybe not actual life, but a lot of those shots were pretty scary looking) for a good action scene.

There's a scene where Cruise actually climbs the tallest building in the world in Mission: Impossible 4, and Cruise is actually climbing it.

The movie just brings hit after hit and if you're looking for a fun thriller, this movie will surely satisfy you're tastes. Granted, I'm too young to have watched the television series that this movie series is based on, but apparently the greatest thing that a lot of people have to say about Ghost Protocol is the fact that it really seems to bring the "TEAM" aspect of Mission: Impossible back to the forefront of the story. This isn't a movie about Tom Cruise's character, it's about the team trying to accomplish the mission. And it's great!
