week in film and tv 1.8.2011

it’s been one of those weeks where i haven’t been motivated to do much so of course my go-to for feeling blah is netflix and our awesome movie and show library. this week’s viewings:

be kind rewind

we were in the mood for a familiar movie and decided on this great film written and directed by michel gondry. he is one of the best directors today.

an education

i’ve been wanting to see this for a while and pulled it from the ole netflix instant queue. it has a surprise ending that i didn’t see coming. i liked it. and i love peter sarsgaard.

gentleman broncos

jared hess delivers the goods in gentlemen broncos just as he did in napoleon dynamite (let’s forget about nacho libre for a moment).

sons of anarchy, season 2

catching a glimpse of this show here and there when my hub was watching, i thought it was a soap opera for men who like motorcycles. but i finally watched the first season over the holidays and got kinda hooked. katey sagal is a bad ass.

 

party down, season 2

season one is way funnier with jane lynch in the cast but season two is still good. martin starr continues to be hilarious in this series about a bunch of aspiring actors and writers who work for a catering company.

 

fired up!

my husband and bro-in-law actually chose this for a sunday funday type movie. if you don’t mind hearing “risk it for the biscuit” five times in one movie, then you’ll like this one. it’s cheesy funny.
