- My Own Man (2014)
- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2015, Netflix original) – Aka: “One of the 15 things we’re looking forward to in 2015″. Lets face it we would have watched ANYTHING on TV Tina Fey put her mind to after 30 Rock ended. Especially if it was in tandem with Robert Carlock. It has taken a few years of waiting but now, this Spring brings us Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a comedy about a woman who emerges from a bomb shelter where she was kept by a cult that told her the world was ending is here. Ellie Kemper, who has long deserved a show all her own, stars as Kimmy, with Jane Krakowski, Titus Burgess, Carol Kane and Lauren Adams rounding out the cast. And, as if knowing we’d want it all at once, Netflix snatched the show from NBC and will be releasing it all at once, as it was meant to be. Second season has already been pre-ordered too, thank God
- The Kill Team (2013) – The Kill Team is an absolutely enthralling tour-de-force documentary that stares unblinkingly down the ugly, dirty face of war, offering a sobering look at its specters. There are no heroes to be found here, only the very banality of extreme violence. As Specialist Adam Winfield says, “There are no good men left here.” Read our full review here.
- Listen Up Philip (2014) – There are a handful of moments early in Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip that dangle the promise that the movie might not be mediocre. A Wes Anderson-style montage here, a joke there, a bit of sparkle between Jason Schwartzman’s titular young novelist and Jonathon Pryce’s grand elder, and you could almost think there’s a possibility this movie would turn out to be anything other than garbage. Read our full review here.

March 19, 2015

March 20, 2015
- Bloodline: Season 1 (2015 series, Netflix original) – from our STREAMING ORIGINALS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2015: The team behind Damages brings use a 13 episode thriller on the dark side lurking under the surface of a seemingly loving American family. According to the Netflix blurb: “The Rayburns are hard-working pillars of their Florida Keys community. But when the black sheep son comes home for the 45th anniversary of his parents’ hotel, he threatens to expose the Rayburns’ dark secrets and shameful past, pushing his siblings to the limits of family loyalty” which sounds juicy enough in and off itself, but the REAL REASONS why we’re excited for this: Kyle Chandler (aka Coach Taylor in Friday Night Lights) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks, Mad Men…) star. One sentence is all the teaser trailer needed to do to hook us:
- God’s Not Dead (2014)
- God’s Not Dead (2014)
- The Zero Theorem (2013) – the new Terry Gilliam is pure Gilliam but also, sadly, not very good, despite having both Swinton and Waltz in it. Read our full review here.
March 22, 2015

- Turn: Season 1 (2014 series) – that AMC show about a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence that you didn’t watch but heard was pretty good.
March 27, 2015
- Inspector Gadget (2015, Netflix original) – NOT the Matthew Broderick abomination.
- Trailer Park Boys: Season 9 (2001 series)
- Frankie & Alice (2010)
- Frankie & Alice (2010) – Halle Berry suffers from multiple personality disorders. This one could go either way.
March 31, 2015
- Ask Me Anything (2014) – Justin Long is in this.
- The Man with the Iron Fists (2012) – to quote this perfect summary of this movie: OK, so the tagline to this RZA written, directed AND starring vehicle (produced by Quentin Tarantino, and co-starring Lucy Liu and Russel Crowe) is … “You can’t write Kung Fu, without the F.U.” Geddit? The plotline involves a blacksmith, oppression, iron fists and Pam Grier. The co-writer is violence porn master Eli Roth. If there ever was a patron saint to movies so bad that it is actually good, this probably IS IT
