I was stoked when i saw that Netflix put up Time Traveller: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time on instant play! I’m a big fan of the manga Toki o Kakeru Shōjo and never got a chance to catch the film live-action version. I cried. So so many feels. Too many feels for 2am. But i loved every moment of the cheese fest and i loved everyone in the movie.
Batman: Year One is on Netflix instant play.
You should watch it.
I know, what is Christian Bale doing here, but I loved “The Flowers of War.” It’s on Netflix instant play! Its a slow starting film but it really is beautifully shot and tragic all at the same time.
In 1937, Nanking stands at the forefront of a war between China and Japan. As the invading Japanese Imperial Army overruns China’s capital city, desperate civilians seek refuge behind the nominally protective walls of a western cathedral. Here, John Miller (Christian Bale), an American trapped amidst the chaos of battle and the ensuing occupation takes shelter, joined by a group of innocent schoolgirls and thirteen courtesans, equally determined to escape the horrors taking place outside the church walls. Struggling to survive the violence and persecution wrought by the Japanese army, it is an act of heroism which eventually leads the seemingly disparate group to fight back, risking their lives for the sake of everyone
You have to watch it. The women are not only breathtakingly beautiful but their acting alone is worthy of your attention. The school girls are phenomenal as well. It’s not for the faint of heart, lots of killing and blood shed and like i said above, its a slow start. Give it a try though.
Netflix snagged a lot of Disney movies to put on instant play!
I’m over here having a field day.
A Cat in Paris is on Netflix!
Meet Dino, a common house cat who lives a double life. He’s the loyal pet of Zoe, a lonely little girl who lives with her busy single mother Jeanne, a police detective. But after sundown when Zoe goes to sleep, Dino sneaks off to accompany debonair cat burglar Nico, and their nightly prowls take them on breathtaking escapades across the rooftops of Paris. Eventually, Zoe discovers what Dino is up to and she too becomes drawn into a thrilling adventure involving jewels, and gangsters, all leading to a nail-biting and acrobatic finale atop the gothic Notre Dame.
I absolutely loved this animated film when I saw it last year at a film festival. Really glad i get to see it again. Beautifully drawn and the landscapes are amazing. Definitely give this a watch during the weekend when you’re free.
