10 Things You Need To Watch On Netflix This May

Published

Sherlock Netflix MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]ummer is here and that means you’ll probably be spending less time in front of your television or computer. And that’s okay since Netflix will always be there waiting for you whenever rain strikes or an exhausting day at the beach warrants some boob-tubery.

But you probably don’t want to bore yourself with the endless searching for something new. Since Netflix’s algorithms haven’t yet mastered your taste in content, here is a rundown of the movies and TV series you can expect to find on Netflix this May.

1. A Study in Sherlock (May 1)

Sherlock Netflix MovieSpoon.comIf you just can’t wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch reprise his role as Sherlock Holmes, this supplementary documentary might tide you over until the new season premieres. The co-creators and the cast (including Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) discuss the behind the scenes working of the series. It will certainly itch the right spots for the overly-anxious fans.

 

2. Sugar Coated (May 1)

Summer brings with it outdoor activities that can lead to cones of ice cream and cold bottles of soda. But if you’re trying to kick the sugar habit, this little documentary on the subject will help keep you on that diet. Packed with concerning facts and startling political agendas, it may be just the eye-opener you need to keep yourself on the wagon.

 

3. Jesus Town, USA (May 1)

Jesus Town USA Netflix MovieSpoon.com

Lookin’ good, fellas.

A small Oklahoma town plans a reenactment on the life of Jesus Christ every year. They have a new kid on the block this year to play the son of god. He appears to fit the bill with his long hair, but there’s one secret that could shake the production: he’s a Buddhist. A quirky little documentary, Jesus Town, USA has that strange awkwardness which compels the viewer to see just how far this production will go with a Buddhist Jesus actor.

 

4. The Critic (May 1)

Perhaps a bit personal for a writer such as I, but how could I help myself. Film critic Victor finds he is tired of the romantic comedy genre until he meets the right woman that sucks him into the world of familiar clichés. But are clichés all that bad if they still make us feel something? Comical and introspective, this picture is a real treat for those obsessed with movies and offers a friendly reminder of how important it is to separate our lives from them. After all, you don’t want to get to the point where you deliver a star rating on your dating life.

 

5. Submerged (May 3)

Submerged Netflix MovieSpoon.com

A shower has never been so frightening.

A night out in a limo goes horribly wrong when gun-toting bad guys assault the party-going passengers. During their escape, the limo crashes off a bridge and into a canal where it sinks to the bottom. Water seeps in as the passengers struggles to figure out how to survive in their dwindling hours of oxygen. But the bad guys might not be done with them if they can even escape.

Key to the City

Key to the City x Bond

Published

on

By

—Agent: The following is for your eyes only—

Talk about a character who won’t live and let die! Just like our Andy from Key to the City (which you should check out now by the way!), James Bond has had many different faces over the years (though Andy’s face literally changes every morning he wakes up ????), which got me wondering about the best James Bond flick of all time. So read on and find out which movie gets a license to kill! Ok, I’m done with the puns now.

 

Moonraker (1979)

Inspired by the success of Star WarsMoonraker is an awesome, spacey James Bond movie.

 

Golden Eye (1995)

We love Sean Bean in pretty much everything, and he’s perfect as villain Alec Trevelyan/Janus, a rogue former MI6 agent. There’s also Famke Janssen, who has super-powered killer thighs.

 

Thunderball (1965)

This movie has one of the most iconic James Bond moments ever–when a gorgeous woman in a bathtub asks Bond for something to wear, he simply hands her a pair of shoes.

 

The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

As much as we love the actors who play James Bond, the villains are just as interesting. It doesn’t get much better than Christopher Lee playing a deranged assassin.

 

Casino Royale (2006)

Casino Royale did a remarkable job at painting James Bond as a real human, a trend which would follow in Daniel Craig’s later Bond movies. Eva Green’s portrayal of Vesper Lynd was a welcome twist on the standard Bond girl.

 

Dr. No (1962)

The very first of the James Bond films featured Sean Connery facing off against Doctor No, a crazed nuclear scientist. It set the standard for every Bond movie that followed.

 

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Though Roger Moore may not be people’s favorite James Bond, the worldwide scenery and crazy sets–like the ocean hideout–gave The Spy Who Loved Me a grand scale.

 

Skyfall (2012)

From Adele’s beautiful theme to the gorgeous cinematography, it’s impossible for Skyfall not to make an impression. This was Daniel Craig’s best appearance as James Bond, and Javier Bardem provides a terrifying counterbalance.

 

From Russia with Love (1963)

Sean Connery is one of our favorite James Bonds ever, and for good reason. In his second stint as the spy, Connery shines alongside former Miss Rome Daniela Bianchi. This is one of the most spy-feeling movies of any of the Bond films.

 

Goldfinger (1964)

Hailed as the “ultimate Bond” movie by many sources, Goldfinger featured Sean Connery in his third run as James Bond. Plus, who can forget one of the most memorable exchanges in film history? “Do you expect me to talk?” “No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!”

16 Sultry Movie Vampires That Will Make You BEG for Immortality from Izzy

Published

Movie Vampires MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen it comes to immortality, we’ve got you covered with the Gods and Goddesses in Izzy. But when it comes to sexy immortality, vampires are the clear winners. Seriously, who can possibly think werewolves are remotely close to being as enticing as vampires are? It’s in a vampire’s very nature to be seductive, using their charms to win over victims.

And by “win over,” we mean “suck the life out of.” They’ve got those pointy fangs for a reason, after all, and they know how to use them.

Movie Vampires MovieSpoon.com

We probably shouldn’t find vampires as attractive as they are, but we can blame the Hollywood bigwigs for casting ridiculously good-looking actors as our favorite monsters. Here are 16 of the Sexiest Movie Vampires ever:

Gabby Goes to College

The 16 Greatest Villains That Will Make You Join the Dark Side

Published

on

By

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s much as everyone likes to cheer on the hero, there are certain movies where you can’t help but feel some sympathy for the baddie. Sometimes, it’s good to be bad. Just ask Gabby… or better yet,  check out Gabby Goes to College and find out why. Sometimes though, bad just means plain ol’ bad… and we love it. Here are the 16 greatest movie villains ever:

 

#16. Commodus

Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator (2000)

Greatest Movie Villains Commodus MovieSpoon.com

He murdered his father to seize the throne, which doesn’t really start his rule off on a good foot.

 

#15. Loki

Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers (2012)

Greatest Movie Villains Loki MovieSpoon.com

This was the movie that put Tom Hiddleston on the map. Who wouldn’t want to follow the charismatic god of mischief?

 

#14. Wicked Witch of the West

Margaret Hamilton, The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Greatest Movie Villains Wicked Witch MovieSpoon.com

The flying monkeys may have been creepier, but the Wicked Witch of the West was the mastermind behind it all.

 

#13. Freddy Kreuger

Robert Englund, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Greatest Movie Villains Joker MovieSpoon.com

Nightmares are already scary enough before Freddy Kreuger finds his way into your mind.

 

#12. Hans Gruber

Alan Rickman, Die Hard (1988)

Greatest Movie Villains Hans Gruber MovieSpoon.com

The German terrorist wouldn’t have been the same without the late Alan Rickman. Only his voice could leave such an impact on lines like, “That’s a very nice suit, Mr. Takagi. It would be a shame to ruin it.”

 

#11. Sauron

The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003)

Greatest Movie Villains Sauron MovieSpoon.com

Sauron is massively powerful, but his full power isn’t realized without his trusty ring. Unfortunately for the rest of Middle Earth and especially Frodo, he wants it back.

 

#10. Hans Landa

Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Greatest Movie Villains Hans Landa MovieSpoon.com

Quentin Tarantino refers to Hans Landa as the best character he’s ever created. Best, but possibly most chilling.

 

#9. Voldemort

Ralph Fiennes, Harry Potter franchise (2005-2011)

Greatest Movie Villains Voldemort MovieSpoon.com

The darkest wizard of all time murdered Harry Potter’s parents before attempting to kill Harry himself, who was a baby at the time. Who does that? Only one of the greatest villains ever.

 

#8. Bruce the Shark

Jaws (1975)

Greatest Movie Villains Jaws MovieSpoon.com

You only need to hear the music to know you’re in trouble.

 

#7. Michael Myers

Tony Moran, Halloween (1978)

Greatest Movie Villains Michael Myers MovieSpoon.com

He wears a creepy mask that must be hard to see out of and never seems to run, but somehow he always catches up to his victims.

 

#6. The Joker

Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight (2008)

Greatest Movie Villains Joker MovieSpoon.com

Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker was chilling. It won the actor a posthumous Oscar for his work.

 

#5. Count Dracula

Bela Lugosi, Dracula (1931)

Greatest Movie Villains Dracula MovieSpoon.com

Not only is Dracula one of the most classic monsters, Bela Lugosi’s portrayal is a classic performance.

 

#4. Jigsaw

Tobin Bell, Saw (2004)

Greatest Movie Villains Jigsaw MovieSpoon.com

Having a strong desire to live is one thing, but Jigsaw takes things too far when he tests other people’s will to do the same by making them mutilate themselves.

 

#3. Amon Goeth

Ralph Fiennes, Schindler’s List (1993)

Greatest Movie Villains Amon Goeth MovieSpoon.com

Goeth oversaw a Jewish labor camp during WWII, where he’d occasionally shoot prisoners just for the heck of it.

#2. Hannibal Lecter

Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal (2001)

Greatest Movie Villains Anthony Hopkins MovieSpoon.com

He eats people, but somehow you’re still rooting for this eerie movie villain.

 

#1. Darth Vader

David Prowse, Star Wars Franchise (1977-1983)

Greatest Movie Villains Darth Vader MovieSpoon.com

Though he’s most known for his heavy breathing and telling Luke about that whole paternity thing, Darth Vader, above all, strikes fear into his enemies’ hearts.
