The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
If you hadn’t skipped this screening in your Intro to Film lecture 11 years ago, you’d understand Tarantino’s homages to spaghetti westerns way better. Now’s your chance. Oh man, didn’t Netflix just add Pulp Fiction? Yes, they totally did. Pulp Fiction it is.
Waking Ned Devine
The title gives you nothing to work with. Moving on.
It’s a beloved Italian classic, which means you’re gonna have to read subtitles. That’s a little more work than you feel like putting into a movie, isn’t it? Hey, how about this—you’ll brush up on your Italian this year and watch Cinema Paradiso in its native language. That’s probably never gonna happen, but who knows, maybe you’ll surprise yourself.
Oh man, a holocaust movie? You were coming to Netflix for an escape. That midyear review with your boss did not go well today and the last thing you need is a downer. You’ll get around to this one later when things are going better, but right now there’s no need to add to your misery. Why not give BoJack Horseman a whirl?
