Netflix, worth the price for House of Cards alone, has some hidden gems this month that makes its $8 a month price totally ten-buck-worthy.
The Trip (2010)
If you saw the trailer for The Trip To Italy, in theaters now, you may not have realized it’s a sequel. The Trip features Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a tour country's finest restaurants and it’s the perfect appetizer to the new film.
Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (2010)
Can we still talk about Joan Rivers? Absolutely. This top shelf documentary follows the life and career of Joan Rivers, made when the comedienne was 75 years old. You’ll laugh for sure, but you’ll also get an honest glimpse into the real life of a comedian and be surprisingly impressed by the hardworking Rivers. It was worth ten bucks in the theater.
This year proves you can’t see too much of J-Law. This flick is the perfectly refresher before going to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters on November 21 (Catching Fire available on Netflix on October 22)
Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’ (2013)
If you went to see Jimi: All Is By My Side in theaters this week, you were probably disappointed that the filmmakers were unable to secure rights to any of his original songs. Get your fix with this rockin’ documentary that uses previously unseen performance footage, and his songs, to provide insight into the life of this legend.
Don Jon (2013)
This was a poor choice for a date night movie, but it’s pretty darn funny at home. It definitely needed a better climax, but most of this film is enjoyable thanks to director/actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore.
Bonus for parents:
LEGO: Marvel: Maxium Overload (2013)
The Lego Movie was AWESOME!! But if you’ve seen it 100 times, here’s a super AWESOME suggestion to have something new playing in the background.
Worth ten bucks: For sure.
