Not to sound like a total ad, but when I feel like staying in and having a movie night, I turn on some Netflix and let the waves of their instant movies wash over me. Here are a couple of instant gems that you may not know about, and once you put them on, it’ll make your decision to stay in totally worth it.
Singham is a Bollywood treat, featuring insane action scenes mixed with a romantic comedy. Yep, it swings from one extreme to the other- it’s an action orgy one second, and the next will be about Officer Singham going on a date and singing a love song. The film has a rapid pace and energetic enthusiasm that keeps it feeling lively even when things are a little slower. Plus, the film’s action scenes feature some of the most exaggerated, over-the-top, and fun action I’ve seen in a while. If the trailer below doesn’t sell this weird gem to you, I don’t know what will.
If you’re looking for a less serious, not as dark version of Red Dawn, look no further than Tomorrow, When the War Began. Set in Australia and based off of the book series with the same name, this film has a strong cast of likable characters and some surprisingly strong action sequences. Read my review for more details. In the review I mentioned a sequel would be out this year, but it seems to be up in the air as to if that will happen. I, for one, really enjoyed this Aussie YA flick, and would love to see a sequel .
