Coming to Netflix in May

What better way to celebrate the end of finals than by starting a new TV series or watching a movie?  Luckily, this May, Netflix will be adding some solid movies to their queue.  Here are my favs:

Forrest Gump

Why they ever took Forrest Gump off of Netflix is a mystery to me.  That being said, I'm so pumped it's back.  If you've been living under a rock since 1995, Forrest Gump is one of Tom Hanks's and Robin Wright Penn's best roles.  If you've got a spare, like, 3 hours, go watch it!  

 

Happy Feet

It's rare to find someone who hasn't seen this adorable and almost creepily too-lifelike movie about penguins that sing and dance.  It's the movie that people wanted to see but accidentally watched March of the Penguins thinking it was the same movie.  

 

The Host

Personally I do not find Stephanie Meyer a fantastic author --  that being said, the rest of the world may not agree with me!  So for those Twilight fans out there, The Host is for you.  Based on Meyer's book by the same title, it's a sci-fi aliens take over the world kinda movie.  Nice.

 

Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive

Literally only Tracy Morgan can find humor in almost dying.  This is Tracy's stand-up comedy speical post-serious car accident.  If you love Saturday Night Live or 30 Rock, watch it. 

 

The Break Up

I feel like The Break Up, The Switch, and Just Go With It are all the same movie so if you liked any one of those, this one's a great subsitute.  

 

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3

Finally!  I'm not going to lie, this show kinda has weird humor.  But hey, that's Tina Fey.  It's really funny if you can suspend reality and you've made it through the entirety of The Office, 30 Rock, and Parks and Rec (like I have...)

 

Inglourious Basterds

This is one of Tarentino's best movies, in my opinion.  It's like a bizarre WWII story with a ton of storylines (per usual.)  It's all about Brad Pitt and his team of soldiers and their violent acts of retribution.  It's not for the faint of heart, but it's really good.

 

Southpaw

This movie is a major downer, I'm not going to lie.  It's about a pro MMA fighter who fights for custody over his child after his wive is fatally shot.  Also, there's a lot of Eminem on the soundtrack which is not suprising at all and really fitting.  The movie is pretty good, but dear Lord, Hoppy's storyline was so unnecessary -- watch it to see what I mean.  

House of Cards season 5

Move over Oiliva Pope, the other DC-based drama is back.  Frank Underwood is here to terrify us about US politics once again.
