Thanks to Netflix
I've been able to enjoy several movies that I'd never heard of.
is a classic PI film set in a modern high school. Its fun figuring out which high school students correspond to which film noir archetypes.
is a sci-fi movie but it doesn't focus on action or effects. Its like watching an excellent Twilight Zone episode. I hate to describe this any
further for fear of giving something away.
The Amazing Screw-On Head
is an animated version of the one shot comic
. It feels like
the 1800s precursor to the The Venture Bros.
and stars Screw-On Head, a steam-punk robot head thing and Abe Lincoln's top spy for occult
The Quiet Earth
is the movie version of the book about a man who awakes one day to find himself alone(... or is he?) It was made in the 80s and in
Australia but don't hold that against it.
