I recall this being a mildly entertaining flick, Starring Gene Hackman and Deluxe Video Online’s Man-crush Keanu Reeves. Jon Favereau and Orlando Jones also have parts in this film. No Lie I think Orlando Jones is one of the most talented comedians that never quite made it.
Fourth Man Out (2015)
Marseille – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
Who knew Gérard Depardieu was still around.. He never really caught on in the states, but Gerad apparently has never stopped working, and perhaps Marseille will get him a foothold in American cinema.
Ali Wong: Baby Cobra – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
Baby Daddy: Season 5
Grace and Frankie: Season 2 – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
This isn’t really my cup of tea, but Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda have a great chemistry, and will play well if you are post menopause.
Young & Hungry: Season 3
The Chosen Ones (2015)
A Stand Up Guy (2015)
Eisenstein in Guanajuato (2015)
Chelsea – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
I’ve never been a huge Chelsea Handler fan, but Netflix’s Chelsea may change my mind..
They Look Like People (2015)
Bleeding Heart (2015)
We Are Still Here (2015)
Yo Soy la Salsa (2014)
American Dad!: Season 10
Kindergarten Cop 2 (2016)
Slasher: Season 1 (2016)
A Girl Like Her (2015)
Benders: Season 1 (2015)
This is the true story of a woman who loses her shit then somewhat regains it.
Lady Dynamite is a 12-episode half-hour comedy from Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park) starring comedian Maria Bamford. Based on “her life,” this Netflix original, is a somber look at the highs and lows of Bamford’s life — as an actor on the rise, during her hospitalization for bipolar disorder, and through her present life in LA, where she’s reached a middle ground and found love.
David and Goliath (2015)
The Letters (2014)
The Ouija Experiment 2: Theatre of Death (2015)
Graceland: Season 3
The Last Man on the Moon (2016)
You can’t escape the past. The Rayburn family returns for Bloodline: Season 2, struggling to conceal an unthinkable crime, unravelling in the midst of mounting lies, betrayal, and paranoia.
The Do-Over (2016) – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
Adam Sandler’s second film for Netflix has to be better than The Ridiculous 6, right? RIGHT?
The life of a bank manager (David Spade) is turned upside down when a friend from his past (Sandler) manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure.
Chef’s Table: Season 2, Part 1 – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
If you’re a foodie, you’ll love Chef’s Table. It is perhaps the best documentary on chef’s out there. Why the food channel never thought of this is beyond me, but season one was just an appetizer..
Mako Mermaids: Season 4 – NETFLIX ORIGINAL
Hell on Wheels: Season 5
Outside of the original content there isn’t a whole lot on Netflix that will have me glued to my couch this May. Even the Netflix Originals are hardly as compelling as the previous months releases of Daredevil and Pee Wee’s Big Holiday, but for ten bucks a month there is still plenty to like.
