MOVIES IN ENJOYED ON CANADIAN NETFLIX (and maybe a few from movies form movie theatres and other networks)

Movies I enjoyed on Canadian net flex

A bigger splash. This is an unusual movie. I saw it as it was set in some remote part of Italy and it reminded me of  the granite rich rural parts of Tumkur district.  The story is different from the run of the mill commercial movies.

A walk among the tombstones-I saw this as Liam Neeson is there and I like this actor.

About a boy-I had seen this years ago in theatre and I love this so much I have seen it thrice despite my ADD

Alleycats: British movie. Crime. Not great.

Ambushed : Crime. I don't know why I saw it...maybe because I had nothing better to do.



Bad company-comedy/crime it was okay

Bad neighbours: comedy/American. Okay. not great.

Best laid plans: Not great. I saw because Reese Witherspoon was in it.

Blue jasmine-black comedy, I really liked this(realistic)

Blue streak: Comedy. Liked it though it's not the funniest movie I have ever seen. (Feb 2017)

Before I disappear.(saw on Mar 16 2016) I liked this,,,different type of movie , not the usual commerical type

Broken city: Action. Nice. I saw the full movie as I like both the main characters (Whalberg and Crowe)(April 2016)



Calvary: British(?Irish) movie. Not to be missed. As a therapist, I really found this very thought-provoking and questioning myself and the work I do.
Casino: Good movie; violent but excellent acting and you understand how a Las Vegas casino works. Robert De Nero is great and also Sharon Stone. The direction and screenplay is good despite the violence(Scorsese)

 Clean skin- I saw this as I like the main guy. It's not at all fun for me  for me to see endings like this!
Couple retreat: Comedy. I enjoyed this. I like all the actors in this and though not very very funny, it was pleasant.

Crimson tide-  I think I saw this but not sure!



Dead man down-As I am making this list, I am not sure if I saw it fully or not. But I sort of like this Colin Farrell and so I assume I have seen it.

Department Q: A conspiracy of faith: Danish movie. Crime, Not my cup of tea: no humour, bleak, nothing new, Needlessly gory. By needless, I mean, I cant believe people can commit such crimes for such reasons...not convincing reasons for the crime(wasted my time seeing this in Feb 2017)

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy-Indian movie, set in pre-independence Calcutta. I keep using this phrase, 'it's different' but I mean it every time I use it! This movie to me was different from the usual Bollywood movies. I saw it out of curiosity...it's about an Indian Dhoti-clad PI, in pre-independence India!

Django unchained-This movie's review did not sound great but I loved this!

Down periscope: a comedy. Nice

Drive-action thriller. I fell in love with this actor (Ryan Gosling) and so I loved this movie I think!



Eagle eye-Not great but saw it fully

Extraction:British movie



Fool's gold. I have fantasized about finding treasure my entire life and so I saw this comedy, action. Not so great but I saw it fully.

Footloose- I loved this movie, though it seemed a bit slow for today.

Four brothers-action ..okay. I like to see movies with Walberg and so I saw this.

Four Christmases: comedy. Nice. I love both Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon.



Gone baby gone-crime. Okay



Hackers-crime. angelina jolie is young in this. Okay. not great.

Hangover-comedy. I saw it as I had liked the show Bored to death and that actor was in this movie. This is okay.

Harold and Maude- I cant explain why, but I loved this movie!

Hit and run-action comedy. it was okay(I dont like the main actor much though he acted well and all that)

Hollywood homicide-action comedy. I liked it.

Homefront:US movie

Horrible bosses-2.  US movie, funny, I enjoyed it.



I give it a year: British comedy. Nice

Identity thief-comedy, I liked this one

Inherent vice: I enjoyed it especially the ambience, the photography, the people in it. But I cannot say I understood it! I had to read the plot on Wikipedia after I saw the movie to make some sense of it! This is like an Indie movie...If Indie is what I think it means!

Irrational man-different from mainstream movies. Nice



John Wick. Saw this movie. Not great at all. Why did I sit through it?

Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park 2 i.e. tTe lost world
Jurassic Park 3
Saw all three of the above movies in January 2017 and loved all three of them





Let's be cops-comedy, juvenile



Marauders: Crime. I saw it because Bruce Willis s in it. Not great.

Meet the Patels: I never see Indian movies if I can help it and I saw this! It's not the usual Bollywood movie, I can promise you!

MI-5: British movie/okay/not my cup of tea/no humour.(June 2016 on netflex)

Misconduct: crime. American.not a great movie. I saw it because of Bruce Willis.

Miss India America: Movie made in USA about Indians in USA. comedy. I saw as it's Indians in America. It's just okay. Not great at all.

Matador -action comedy 3 out of 5

Mud: I enjoyed this movie a lot. I was put off by the photo and din’t see it for ages but I am glad I saw it.



Ninetynine homes: Movie about the housing bubble burst in USA. Everyone in USA who were involved in buying houses at the time should see it

Nonstop:American thriller 

Notting Hill-British romance. really nice!

Now you see me





Paperboy: I liked it .

Paranoia: thriller: 2013. Dint like it much but saw it fully

Precious cargo: Okay

Prime-comedy/romantic 3of 5

Prisoner-action, crime. It's sad and torturous for me. I saw it fully but I prefer it were less sad.



Quills-Not to be missed. a movie about Marquis De Sade in prison.



Rage: I saw half and gave up...meaningless violence!

Red: Action & comedy. Nice. I saw it fully which means, it did hold my attention for the full duration!

Red 2: I enjoyed this one too! I love Bruce Willis and his smile and understated sort of acting!
Redirected: British crime movie set in Lithuania. Not great (but something about it kept me watching it till the end) but I saw it. I need to be psychoanalyzed to check out why I see these movies!

Ride along: I would rate this 2 to 3 out of 5; funny. saw it in April 2016

Rock the Kasbah: American comedy set in Afghanistan. Okay

Romancing the stone. Is a sequel to The jewel of the Nile. Both are romantic comedies.
Run all night- Liam Neeson is the reason I saw this crime movie. Not a great movie.



Salt:Angelina Jolie's. Not great.


sex ed-I can’t imagine why I saw this! I am not sure if I saw the whole thing or stopped halfway

Sex and the city-part 2

Shooter-action, crime. I saw it fully as the chief actor (Whalberg) holds one's attention. But the movie itself, is not great for me

Sleeping with the enemy

Smokey and the bandit: I enjoyed this old fashioned comedy of 1977.

Supertroopers-I saw this comedy, which indicates, there is still a part of me which is juvenile, immature and teenagerish!

Supremecy-everyone should see this movie. 



The art of the steal Comedy/crime

The best exotic marigold hotel-saw it. comedy. I saw it as it has India in it

The big short_everyone who was impacted by the US 2008 crash should see this

The equalizer: Action/crime/American. I enjoyed this...I liked the fact that spoiler alert if you read more (he does so much for a stranger and she has no idea how much he's done for her.)

The interview-comedy. the best parts are shown in the trailer. this is not at all a great movie. I can’t imagine, why so much hype was there about this.

The jewel of the Nile :American movie and the sequel Romancing the stone..romantic comedies with Michael Douglas & Kathleen Turner

The holiday-I enjoyed this gentle British movie

The hunt for red October.I saw this 1990 movie in 2015. So I found it a bit too slow. If I had seen it in 1990, I am sure it would have been fast-paced and exciting for me! The movies and sows are becoming so amped up that the old ones don’t hold out attention now....though they were great at the time

The Lincoln lawyer: I enjoyed this movie! It has Mathew Mc...y whose acting  I really like. crime and authored by Michael Connelly whose books I have read and enjoyed. (Feb 2017)


The lobster- Am amazing dystopian movie!

The lookout: French movie/thriller

The November man: crime. action. I enjoyed it.

The numbers station-not great. I dont know why I saw this!

The place beyond the pines-This too has Ryan Gosling and lot of similarities to the movie Drive. There is something so understated about this guy, he simply stole my heart!

The sitter--comedy for teenagers. I saw the whole thing. 

The vanishing: Crime. A waste of my time! The reason I saw it is because of Sandra Bullock and Keifer Sutherland. I am discovering that I dislike these psychological thrillers i.e. where a crackpot commits crimes. I am a psychologist and I simply don't see these kind of twisted, clever, killer-type people. I don't believe such cracks pots exist and I hate that these movies are produced!

The wave: Norwegian movie. It has the most boring script ever. Everything my screenplay writing teacher told me not to do...is there in this script! It was so flat, the dialogue was like something written for grade one kids. Yet, I saw the movie fully which means there must have been other good things in this movie.  Nature provides all the drama in this movie. Definitely not  the script or the people.

The wedding ringer: Comedy. I enjoyed it.
This is where I leave you...comedish...offbeat and nice

Too late -this movie is different..artsy...I liked it

Trailer Park boys-dont legalize it (not seen it fully yet)

Turner and Hooch: I loved this movie! comedy/crime and not stupid comedy like we see in recent times. It's about an obsessive compulsive detective and a massive dog.

Twentyone jump street-action, comedy. a part of me is still juvenile I think, else I would not have finished this movie

Two guns-comedy, Not sure if I saw the whole movie or a part of it



Unfinished business: I enjoyed this movie on a flight; it's on netflex too



Wedding crashers: comedy. I enjoyed it. I saw it only as Vince Vaughn was in it.

What just happened -comedy. really unique and different from most commercial movies. I am so glad I saw this! Robert De Niro is the main character in this one







Zoolander-American comedy. I enjoyed this
