Welcome back to the FilmDrunk Guide to Weekly (or Bi-Weekly depending on how busy I am) Streaming and Video on Demand, and this week we’ve got some huge blockbuster movies for you to check out, because you’ve definitely never seen any of these before. Especially this unknown, independent film starring that guy from Chaplin about a man who lives inside a robot to hide his shame. I believe it’s called, This Thing Smells Like Farts.
Check it out, here’s the rundown of this week’s streaming, VOD and a very special iTunes announcement…
!!!Now Available on iTunes!!!
Six Feet Under
Should You Watch These: I’ve only watched The Wire and The Sopranos, and I’ve only watched the former all the way from episode one til the very end. But people rave about all of these shows, so I think it’s worth it to check them all out if you’re trapped in a well with nothing but your laptop, an endless battery and an iTunes gift card. Otherwise, spread them out and live life a little. Try a new flavor of Doritos or something. [Vince’s Note: Rome and Six Feet Under were my all-time favorite shows before I saw The Wire.]
!!!Now Streaming on Netflix!!!
The Kids are All Right
Starring: Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska
The son of a same-sex couple seeks out the sperm donor who made his birth possible in this comedy from writer/director Lisa Cholodenko. The committed parents of two teenage children, Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore), are about to send their daughter, Joni (Mia Wasikowska), off to college when her younger brother, Laser (Josh Hutcherson), asks for her help in tracking down his biological father. Reluctantly inquiring with the sperm bank, Joni leaves her number so the office can pass it along to Laser’s father. Enthusiastic at the thought of meeting his long lost offspring, Paul (Mark Ruffalo) musters the courage to reach out, and the family tree grows a new branch.
Should You Watch It? The critics have raved about this movie that I believe was named after a song by The Offspring. I haven’t watched it, mainly because my job is to look out for and watch terrible movies, but I’ll make a deal with you all right now – if neither of us has seen this movie in 20 years, we’ll get married. Deal?
