Since I am a huge fan of the talkies, I present a new segment here on Zoner Sports, which we all know isn’t always about sports. It’s Netflix Friday! It is here that I will discuss what I currently have at home from Netflix, and also shamefully try to parlay that into a free membership. Or not. But I open this up to discuss all things TV & movies.
My wife and I just finished Season 1 of Friday Night Lights, which is so much better than I expected it to be. Last movie I viewed was Paths of Glory, as I am on a Kirk Douglas kick right now. It’s a fantastic film directed by Stanley Kubrick. I imagine some of the film sequences were to that day what those of “Saving Private Ryan” are to this era. Highly recommended.
I have “Hot Fuzz” at home, which I’m told is just hilarious. I liked “Shaun of the Dead” a lot and this is supposed to be even better. Also at home is “Seven Days In May” with Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster. It’s a John Frankenheimer film that he made right after “The Manchurian Candidate”. I know it’s blasphemy, but I did not like MC as much as the rest of the world.
A few other Douglas movies (there are too many to list) I recommend:
- Lonely Are The Brave
- Ace In The Hole
- Out of the Past
So if you have any recommendations or bad reviews on TV or Film feel free to drop them here.
