I'm looking forward to watching this one - we just finished the series Magic City, both seasons. It's about a hotel in Miami set around the time of Castro's overthrow in Cuba. The guy who plays Negan on The Walking Dead (who I always think is actually Javier Bardem but his name is Jeffrey Dean something I can't remember) is the owner of the hotel.

For some reason I've focused more on series than feature films, maybe because I get more flexibility around my irregular and lengthy schedules. Dexter was a series a friend was constantly suggesting I would love, and sure enough, once I started I was sucked right in. Almost as great as Breaking Bad was to me.

Alive Inside. A Story of Music and Memory was probably the best movie (documentary) I found on Netflix. This is one EVERYONE should see, IMHO!

Just watched the SK1 killer--
French---true story--done as sort of documentary--
Compelling and interesting to compare French police work with what I have seen of US in similar instances...

The Woman in Gold was great.

I also watched Jack Black in The D Train, interesting movie. Pushes the envelope. It was interesting because the two main characters are like different sides of the same dishonest coin.

I put this in the queue when I saw you post this last year. We finally watched it last night. Really fun and sweet movie! Thanks for suggesting it.

I almost posted this in the "Can Someone Explain The Appeal of "Offensive" Humor?" thread, but I thought more people would see it here. Anyway, for those of you who dislike "offensive" humor, you might enjoy this performance we recently watched (on Netflix). It's called "Ryan Hamilton: Happy Face." We've seen a lot of dud comedy specials lately, but we thought he was really good.
