What’s New On VOD: April 2016

VOD netflix and amazon Prime

My apologies that this post is a bit late as I spent the end of March and beginning of April in Vegas, binge drinking and gambling like a deviant. Now that my fine motor skills have recovered somewhat I am ready to dive in and take a look at what VOD has to offer this month.

A lot of great content this month on VOD, If I had to choose subscriptions I am leaning towards Amazon Prime.


A Clockwork Orange 


If you haven’t seen this movie, stop whatever you are doing and load up Netflix. Perhaps one of the best films ever made, A Clockwork Orange takes you into a dark dystopian future, laced with equally dark humor.

16 Blocks (2006)
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Another Stanley Kubrick classic. Perhaps one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time, 2001 is incredibly relevant today with the advancement of AI. Take note Google.
Animaniacs (All 4 volumes)

Along with Pinky And The Brain, Animaniacs led a resurgence of Warner Bros. Animation department that was badly crippled after a disastrous foray into feature length films.. (Yes Space Jam I am looking at you). I loved this series as a child and perhaps more so now that I get all the adult innuendos.

Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown: Season 5
The Ascent of Woman: A 10,000 Year Story
Beat Bobby Flay: Season 1
Best in Show (2000)
Bob’s Burgers: Season 5
Boogie Nights (1997)

All Star cast before they were All Stars.

Breathe (2014)
Chaplin (1992)

A great cast and remarkable story, If you haven’t seen it yet, now’s the time. In my opinion Robert Downey Jr. comes into his own in this film.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)  Why Johnny Depp? Why?
Codegirl (2015)
Colegas (2012)
Cujo (1983)
Cutthroat Kitchen: Seasons 3­4
Deep Impact (1998) The red-headed step child to Armageddon, Deep Impact was perhaps the better film of the two asteroid movies. Yeah the bar is set a bit low here..
Dennis Rodman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang (2015)

I don’t even know… Could be entertaining…
Dolphin Tale (2011) Pass
Erin Brockovich (2000) I mildly enjoyed this film, as I was forced to sit through it back in the day with my girl. It’s a solid story based on real life events, and Julia Roberts performance is a notch above average.
Explorers (1985)
Fixer Upper: Season 2
Frank and Cindy (2015)
Giada at Home: Season 7
The Great Food Truck Race: Seasons 1­2 
House Hunters Collection: Collection 3
House Hunters International Collection: Collection 3
House Hunters International Renovation: Season 1
Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer (2015)
Kids Baking Championship: Season 1
Looking for Richard (1996)
Lost & Found Music Studios: Season 1 ­­*Netflix Original I generally like to check out all the Netflix originals but I’ll pass on this tween crap.
Love It or List It, Too: Season 4
The Mask You Live In (2015)
Morituri (1965)
My Girl (1991) Wasn’t too shabby of a story, and infinitely better than the sequel
Mystic River (2003)

Great freaking drama. perhaps’ one of Eastwood’s best films thanks to the superb performances by the cast. The ending is a bit shitty but Mystic River is worth the ride.

The Next Best Thing (2000)
The Perfect Storm (2000)

Clooney, Wahlberg – Boston accents. was solid.
The Phantom (1996)

Billy Zane and The Phantom is an example of why comic book movies sucked back in the day. Thank you Marvel for showing us the way…
The Princess Bride (1987)

Property Brothers at Home: Season 116 Blocks (2006)

Amazon Prime

Prime may actually have a better line up this month than Netflix. Prime movies are a bit more diverse, but amazon really needs to push quality original content.

Amistad Freeman and Hopkins. Not too preachy considering Amistad’s topic.

Hysterical film still worth watching. Woody Allen couldn’t do wrong in the 70’s.. let’s not discuss anything past the 90’s..

Batman (1989)

Let the “who’s the better” Batman and Joker debates start with Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad coming out. Still a great flick, Batman is an opportunity to watch Keaton and Nicholson set the groundwork for the future films.
Crimes and Misdemeanors

One of my favorite thriller/horror films, Cube was incredibly innovative for its time. If you are into the genre, definitely check it out.

Cube 2: Hypercube Just watch Cube..
Cube Zero Missed this one.. Perhaps best you do as well.
Death Wish Bronson..
Dennis the Menace
Deuces Wild
Dr. T. and the Women
Dream Lover
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Bueller… Bueller..
Gang Related
Into the Blue
Lars and the Real Girl
Liberty Stands Still
Maximum Overdrive
Men in Black II
Music from Another Room
Naked Gun 2&1/2: The Semm of Fear It’s the usual Leslie Nielsen fare..
The Peacemaker
Pootie Tang

Great in small doses, doesn’t quite work as a full movie..
Race Birds
Rescue Dawn
Risky Business
Simon Says
Skipped Parts
Step Into Liquid
Swimming with Sharks
Teen Wolf Too

It’s a wonder how Jason Bateman survived this catostrphe
The Arrival
The Big Lebowski

One of my favorite comedies ever.. There has never been a better character piece than The Big Lebowski.
The Dead Zone
The Devil’s Advocate
The Holiday
You’ve Got Mail Tom Hanks + Meg Ryan = Snoozefest


The Transporter Refueled

The first Transporter was ok for mindless fun. The fourth iteration of the series – minus Jason Stratham – probably could use a little more to be desired. If you watch this film it’s on you..


Nasty baby


Sliding Doors


Mad Max (1979)

You havent seen this yet?


The Whistleblower




Pawn Sacrifice


Unity: The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson
