Some of the scenes of the violence against the kangaroos was most difficult to watch as it was stated (cant remember where) that they were real scenes from kangaroo hunts. I found these scenes painful to watch and painful to remember.

Re: What Should I Add to My Netflix Queue? Bernie

Jack Black is lovable as Bernie and this is a very funny movie.  Especially if you are a Texan or former Texan like me.  I went to school in east Texas, but I would have loved this movie even if I did not feel a connection.  This is the first movie I have seen in several months that I can recommend.  I still watch one movie a week but most of them are just so ho hum.   I did watch "Umberto D", the Italian classic from 1952 a few weeks ago but I turned into a puddle and  I am still worried about what happened to him.  



Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope we can revive this group a bit.

Thanks everyone for all these great suggestions!  Now that my film fest is over I am back to watching DVDs so will be sure to check some of these out.  I also second mapetro01's selection of Departures, a great Japanese drama with lots of emotion and depth.  I too get a lot of DVDs from the library.

I like to catch the TV series I missed the first time around.



 



Right not I'm watching "Foyle's War" which so far I like very much.



 



I added a bunch of new movies to my queue thanks to the great suggestions in this discussion.

I'm enjoying the older series "Inspector Morse" from the 1980's (& 90's?). It never gets old or boring. I also liked 1998's "Twlight" with Susan Sarandon, Paul Newman, Gene Hackman, James Garner and a young Reese Witherspoon. It was a good suspense with lots of twists to the plot. Check it out!

Netflix has become our movie provider of choic.  By far the best series of late is "House of Cards" with Kevin Spacy. Highly recommend this one.  There is also the British version "The House of Cards",  however, unless you are knowledgable of British politics, you won't enjoy it as much as the US version.

The entire "Breaking Bad" series! Although it's dark and violent at times the series is as addicting as the subject matter itself. The writing and acting made for one of the best tv series ever. It pulls you in and takes you on a wild ride!

Luther, a BBC TV series is one of the best "Crimies" I've seen this year. We saw the first year of the series in Denmark and I was plesently pleased to see the second on Netflix. After watching this I'm really bored with US network crime stories.
