Netflix Now: Rock the Casbah

It's been great watching Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's career skyrocket. He's a true blue "guy everyone wants to be, everyone wants to be with" who can go from children's films to action hero status without missing a beat. And ...

Netflix Now: Lind-Sue Lohan Edition

Apparently to signal the end of her once promising career, Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V for using her likeness without her permission. Technically she's right as GTAV uses everyone's likeness in tha...

Netflix Now: War, What is it Good For? Edition

Over the past few days, North Korea has responded to the first trailer for Seth Rogen and James Franco's new gig, The Interview. Citing it as an "act of war" if the American government allows that film to release. Normal...

Netflix Now: EEE 2014 Edition

It's been a great week. We got a new PSY single featuring Snoop Dogg, lots of videogame announcements were made during the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo (check out our sister site, Destructoid, for all of that stuff), an...

Netflix Now: Three Kardashians and a Baby Edition

After all of this time, I'm still keeping up with the Kardashians for some reason. Kim and Kanye (not Kanye and Kim, hilariously enough) or "Kamye/Kimye/Kimchi" had their wedding, and now one of the Kardashians sisters is pre...

Netflix Now: Dumb Phones Edition

Did you know there's a new trend where kids are giving up their smartphones in favor of "dumb" ones? I guess when phones do everything (and inspire terribly premised videogames), and everyone and their grandmother gets a hold...

Netflix Now: Edumacated Edition

It's the end of the school season, folks. Lots of bright eyed kids are graduating, joining the real world, and then will wander around for a year before deciding what to do. I miss those days too. I mean, I don't miss not hav...

Netflix Now: 100 Problems Edition

If you're having girl problems, I feel bad for you son. Jay Z hilariously now has 100 problems (I must be the first person on the internet to make that joke). Apparently Solange Knowles beat up Jay Z in an elevator for reason...

This week, after ten years, Monica Lewinsky has finally broken her silence on her affair will Bill Clinton (whether this is in response to Beyonce's "Partition" single misinformingly popularizing the term "Lewinksy'd" is unkn...

Netflix Now: Kareem Abdul-JaBLAMO Editon

April has really been a weird month. With its wacky weather, unfortunate deaths, and racism. The whole Donald Sterling thing seemed absurd. A white man says some racist comments in a private conversation, that conversation ge...

Netflix Now: Rates Keep On Slippin' Slippin' Edition

Once again, Netflix is going to increase their rates due to an increased surge in popularity. After Netflix CEO Reed Hastings revealed their positive quarterly earnings, he stated that new customers should expect to pay one t...

Netflix Now: Anyone else watching American Idol? Edition

I've really been digging this season of American Idol. Despite the ridiculous amount of cuts to Jennifer Lopez during the performances, most of the contestants this year have been great. And the new judging panel isn't too ba...

Netflix Now: Whole Buncha Stuff Edition

Usually I like to use this space in Netflix Now to talk about the week's events, but there are far too many Instant additions to waste any time. Since it's the beginning of the month, we're in that flux of losing/gaining a bu...

Netflix Now: Hot in Herrrrrrrrrre Edition

Before the Malaysian Flight MH370 mystery came to an unfortunate conclusion, radio station Latino Hot 105.7 vowed to play Nelly's "Hot in Herre" until the plane was found. Well they kept that up for about a day, but what's mo...

Netflix Now: Adele Dazeem Edition

During the Academy Awards, all I looked forward to was Idina Menzel's performance. I was actually more interested in what would win the Best Original Song Oscar more so than I cared about Best Picture. It was a weird night as...

Netflix Now: Blue is the Warmest Color Edition photo
Netflix Now: Blue is the Warmest Color Edition
by Alec Kubas-Meyer

So here's something I didn't expect: Blue is the Warmest Color is now available on Netflix Instant. Abdellatif Kechiche's spectacular three-hour romance is being released on Blu ray and DVD by the Criterion Collection, but while Hulu has that Criterion contract (which is a big part of why I subscribe to Hulu Plus), apparently Sundance Selects is running the digital distribution.

So... it's on Netflix Instant, and nothing else matters. It's the fourth best movie of last year, and if you haven't seen it (and you probably haven't), now is the time.

Seriously. Drop whatever you're doing and go watch it right now.

Netflix Now: Manatees Day Edition

What's Manatees Day? When I tried typing in "Manantine's Day" in my phone it auto corrected to "Manatees Day" thus making it the best idea ever. I figure I can call what I do every Valentine's Day (eat a bunch of junk food, w...

Netflix Now: Deboning the Pink Goo Edition

The Super Bowl happened last weekend as I was planning to talk about it here, but it was terribly boring all around. Kudos to the Seahawks, but watching a blowout coupled with a heap of subpar commercials doesn't make a good ...

Netflix Now: Vin Diesel is a National Treasure Edition

A few hours ago I wrote a story about how Vin Diesel said Universal wants another Riddick, what I didn't get into, however, was how he announced it. After a few minutes of dancing to Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and closing out ...

I like football probably not as much as the next guy (as I only jump in during playoff season like some cheap bandwagoner), but it's that time of the year where it's all I think about until the Soup Bowl. The NFC and AFC cham...
