Hey, remember back in the good old days when every Sunday we’d spotlight films on Netflix Streaming and we called it STREAM WARRIORS? But then it stopped happening because I was half lazy and half hated the name STREAM WARRIORS. Well now here it comes again, except I’m calling it something else and instead of forcing myself to focus on three movies a week, I plan to just do one. One is enough. I’m sorry, I don’t know what I’m doing on the Internet. I’m not a chatty person.
Hooray STAKE LAND is available on Netflix Streaming! This is a perfect flick to talk about because it’s a movie I would never have taken a chance on unless someone told me to. The reason I would have probably stayed away is because who needs another vampire flick and who needs another apocalyptic road movie and who needs to see everybody running around trying to act cool? I don’t. I’d usually much rather watch a movie about a talking doll or pissed off animals that have gone crazy. Meanwhile everything I prejudged about STAKE LAND based on its packaging and subject matter was way off. This movie creates an impressive, believable world and occupies it with people that you can’t help grow to care about. It’s a grounded in a way that movies rarely are anymore and it leaves you feeling like you’ve actually experienced something. Plus KELLY McGILLIS is in it. Aren’t you in the mood to see her today? I’m telling you, it’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon so believe me. There, I’m done. That wasn’t so bad. See ya next Sunday! Also: Do let us know if you’ve caught any good fish in the Netflix sea yourself!
