When I was a kid, I had a few movies that were my “go-to” films to watch on a rainy day when it was too wet to ride a bike outside. One of them was Flight of the Navigator, then there were a couple of Disney classics, and then there was this. Frank Oz’s musical horror comedy, Little Shop of Horrors.
I am a fan of Frank Oz as a director, I mean, the guy was behind the lens for flicks such as The Dark Crystal, What About Bob?, The Muppets Take Manhattan and this little story about a killer plant. Little Shop of Horrors was released in 1986 (or 1987 in the UK) and had an all star cast of 1980’s performers, like Rick Moranis (Honey, I »

The private investigator has been with us for years, decades really. When I was younger I read as many private eye mysteries as I did science fiction and horror novels and short stories. I read as much of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett and Mickey Spillane as I could find. I also read a lot of the two MacDonald’s, Ross MacDonald’s novels about Lew Archer (one of which made a great movie with Paul Newman as Harper) and John D. MacDonald’s novels about Travis McGee. Although McGee was not strictly speaking a Pi he still functioned as one in MacDonald’s color coded novels like Darker Than Amber (which made a great movie with Rod Taylor).

Welcome to another installment of Streaming for Your Pleasure where I highlight films that are currently streaming on Netflix. In this installment I am focusing on action movies. I don’t know about you but sometimes when the proper mood strikes I fiend for some not stop action thrills. In order to make your lives easier I picked out some films that are worth your viewing pleasure. To keep things exciting I choose a variety of films.

Whatever your cup of tea might be there’s a film here that you will find worthy of adding to your Netflix queue.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Valentine's Day is technically a Feast Day, and since I've lost all connection to my Catholic upbringing, I've chosen to believe that "feasting" means indulging in classic Cathy pastimes like chocolate binges and amazing weight gains. Game? Additionally, I say we feast upon a fine candidate for Greatest Romantic Comedy Ever, the whimsical, yet deeply deadpan Moonstruck.
I'm aware that we just celebrated Moonstruck's 25th anniversary a couple months ago, but we've got plenty of reason to dredge up Olympia Dukakis' jaguar smirk yet again: 1) I want to. 2) Logo is playing Moonstruck as part of its pre-Oscars movie block. 3) Cher's recent single "A Woman's World" didn't take off like it should've, so I'm using the eternal goodness of Moonstruck to renew my optimism. 4) Nicolas Cage used to rule. Never forget it. 5) What else are you going to watch this Valentine's Day? Some Gif of cats making out? »
