Netflix Now: Karate-Robo Zaborgar Edition


This is straight-up awesome. I don’t know if any of you remember our review of Karate-Robo Zaborgar, but it’s now all up on Netflix Instant. As a big dork for things kaiju and tokusatsu, I am all over this movie this weekend. In addition to Karate-Robo Zaborgar (aka the name of my first child), Casa de mi Padre with Will Ferrell, Lockout with Guy Pearce, and Zhang Yimou’s The Flowers of War are now available for your streaming pleasure.

On the TV side, there’s The Sarah Silverman Program, and that may be all you need. It is the Karate-Robo Zaborgar of TV shows on Netflix this week. If you’re also into Teen Wolf, that’s there too. Is it weird that I’ve seen the Michael J. Fox movie at least a dozen times (and the Jason Bateman sequel twice) but haven’t seen one episode of the show?

Check out the list of movies after the cut, kemosabe. Also, Karate-Robo Zaborgar!

New additions to Netflix Watch Instantly apply only to readers in the United States. For those in other parts of the world, your choices may vary.
