The Netflix Stream: Week of August 7th, 2011

Okay, so here’s the deal. Instant Watcher, the site I usually go to for my Netflix information, says that nothing new is coming this week. Streaming Soon, which I use to double-check when Instant Watcher is down, says the same thing. We’re losing titles but gaining nothing in return. Oof.

  1. ‘Django’ (8/16): ‘Django’ is a landmark Spaghetti Western. Not because of its quality or some sort of amazing dialogue, or a particular shot that blew people’s minds. It’s a landmark because of the incredible brutality throughout – brutal by the standards of 1966, anyway. ‘Django‘ also helped to inspire scenes in both ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘El Mariachi’. (Read Blu-ray review.)
  2. ‘Made in Britain’ (8/16): This is a flick that I’ve been meaning to get around to. Tim Roth stars as Trevor, a 16-year-old skinhead who hates just about everything. He’s not one of those cool skinheads from ‘This is England‘ either. Trevor is all about “White Power” and has an anti-establishment agenda. This made-for-TV movie is said to be rooted in reality and offers an interesting look at Britain during some of its darker days.

Nothing. Seriously.


  1. I’m not sure how much I trust these 3rd party sites anymore, I’m constantly finding new streaming stuff on NF by accident that went completely under the radars of Instant Watcher, Feed Fliks, etc.
