Netflix Instant Picks - 2/2/12

My main sources of movie watching are Netflix Instant, the library, and my own movie collection - in that order.  If you're looking for something worthwhile to watch on Netflix Instant, I'll start posting these short lists weekly with a variety of movies I'd recommend checking out.
  • True Grit (2010) - Remake of the classic western. Nice update and more faithful to the book.
  • Shaolin Soccer (2001) - A great Stephen Chow film. I loved the comedic action.
  • That Thing You Do! (1996) - Great song, though you are a bit tired of it by the end.  Fun story.
  • Forever Strong (2008) - Great inspirational sports story.  Breaks mold of other formulaic sports films.
  • Calamity Jane (1953) - Fun musical/comedy/romance.  Get a little culture by watching this.
  • Mao's Last Dancer (2009) - Great movie.  Mostly in English, but good anyways.  Amazing dance routines, moving story, and good history lesson (though not sure of accuracy).

  1. Thanks! We've been wanting to watch Mao's Last Dancer for a while now, but haven't been able to get it on video from our library.
