We all know what Netflix is, but we never know what to watch. Without a great way to keep track of all the new titles available to watch instantly it’s pretty easy to overlook something awesome. But have no fear - Panels On Pages is here to keep you up to date on the coolest New Flix on Netflix.
Welcome to 2013, PoP!ulation! If you’re like 85% of my Twitter feed, you hated 2012 about as much as your mom hates it when I don’t call her the next day. Thankfully, all of that is behind you now. Shake off your hangover, grab yourself a bloody mary, and let’s spend today watching all the newest Netflix offerings since the last time we spoke.
The Adventures of Tintin – I just don’t know if I can look past the scene where Tintin escapes a nuclear bomb inside of a refridgerator.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day – He came back! He said he’d come back, and he came back! Too bad your dad never did that, John Conner.
Aziz Ansari: Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening – I hope this entire special is hosted by DJ Rumba.
King Kong (1976) – Twas all those bullets from those airplanes killed the beast. Or maybe the fall. Almost certainly wasn’t beauty, though.
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles – This is the half of Home Alone that doesn’t involve home invasions.
Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke – Can we get a moment of silence for this small chronic break?
Bah Humduck! A Looney Tunes Christmas – Just in time for Christmas!
Jack Frost – Make no mistake, this IS a horror movie.
Another 48 Hrs – I would definitely watch a sequel where current day Eddie Murphy was handcuffed to current day Nick Nolte.
Escape from Alcatraz – Like they always say, “We shoulda never given you Clint Eastwoods spoons!”
For Love of the Game – A surprisingly enjoyable baseball movie. At least, that’s how I remember it. If it sucks, don’t burst my bubble.
The Original Kings of Comedy – Little known fact: King Arthur was a Knock Knock Joke EXPERT.
Rosemary’s Baby – Hey look, it’s a view into Kim Kardashian’s future!
The Untouchables – For somebody who’s supposedly untouchable, they sure do a lot of dry humping behind the scenes.
Slap Shot – You should go ahead and watch this while you think about how you can’t watch real hockey.
The Machinist – Remember when Batman lost a ton of weight and went crazy?
War Games – Remember when Matthew Broderick wasn’t married to a horse?
Batman: Year One – When will we finally get the Batman: Year 1,000,000 animated film? WHEN?
Justice League: Doom – Oh man you guys……let’s make a movie where the Justice League fights Dr. Doom.
All-Star Superman – Meh….Superman.
Superman vs. the Elite – Ugh…..more Superman.
The Club – A bunch of kids at the prom are forced to kill each other? WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN.
FDR: American Badass – After contracting polio from a werewolf bite, FDR won’t stop at single-handedly ending the Great Depression and prohibition. With the help of a team of historic figures, he must claim victory in World War II by defeating an army of Nazi werewolves.
World’s Worst Drivers – Hey look, they finally made a movie about your mom.
Girls with Low Self Esteem – Hey look, they finally made a movie about your mom.
MOMENTARY PAUSE: The above two movies are actually fake listings, designed to help point viewers towards Arrested Development! How’s THAT for a cool marketing technique?
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – FINALLY. FINALLY. FINALLY.
The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – More episodes of the best Avengers cartoon ever. Do you even REMEMBER the first one?
Transformers Prime – Pretty sure this is the one where they turn into animals.
Power Rangers Super Samurai: Stuck on Christmas – Oh, and this one too.
Classic Doctor Who – Just in case you need any inspiration for your t-shirt design business. May I suggest a Doctor Who/Nick Nolte mashup?
The West Wing – I wish they’d ended this show before that whole fiscal cliff disaster, AMIRIGHT?
Gavin & Stacey – Holy Crap! Remember Gavin & Stacey?
Bones – Check it out, now Netflix has just about as many Bones as YOUR MOM.
Coupling – It’s British, ya wankers! Bangers and mash!
Red Dwarf – There’s just not enough tv with people with octagonal heads.
Check it out! A shit load of Disney movies!
And finally, there’s some of this crap
