Netflix Now: Murica Edition

0

The Fourth of July is near, which means good times, grilling, and splosion in the sky. It almost means many of you probably have a long weekend to check out things on Netflix Instant.

Let me make it brief: there’s a lot of stuff added since last week, including some classics (Don’t Look Now, Cleopatra, The Parallax View, The Bad News Bears Go to Japan!), some cool-looking docs (56 Up, Wild Horse Wild Ride, Lunarcy!, The House I Live In), and a couple things I’ve been meaning to see (As Luck Would Have It).

Check out the new stuff on Netflix Watch Instantly after the cut. Also, get your Murica on, buddy.
