Netflix Fridays

I love Netflix and I want to share with all of you all the awesome films I've seen. Every Friday, I will be sharing one or two movies that I suggest you see over the weekend. I will only post those that are available through instant streaming. I'm sure you have an idea how hard it is to scour thousands of movies available on your fingertips and find the very few gems hiding beneath the junk so I will make it easier for you.I have come across movies that are so bad that it drove me mad and some that are instant classics.

Here's a movie I am watching right now that I'm not even done watching and yet I am already recommending it. Yes, it's that good!
It has been sitting patiently in my Instant queue but today I've decided to finally give it a chance. It's a Bollywood film and it's my first and I love it! I now have a great appreciation for Indian films. No wonder they produce so much in a year! It's because they can and they are good at it!They also remind me of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Philippine movies.
This is a family drama that must be seen by the whole family specially the kids! I know they would love this movie and might even probably make them cry. My kids often do cry in movies and I know they would cry when they see this over the weekend. I don't want to ruin it for you so I won't say much, you really have to see it for yourself.
If you don't have Netflix then this is the time to get one! I've been subscribing to Netflix since they began the company in 1999, not continuous but I remember when they only had a a thousand members and quite a few selections.
I've always been a movie fanatic. My dad who loved movies has influenced me greatly. When I was a small child, I rarely played outside with the neighborhood kids. I was often seen inside the house curled up on the couch watching a ton of movies all day (or playing video games). I was allowed to watch anything I wanted with no restrictions (back then people were not really strict about these things)There were a lot of movies that has scarred me to life that's why I don't let my kids see movies that has a lot of sex and violence in it. Some movies can be too sick and some people think that a movie must be controversial to be awesome but that is not always the case. In fact, to me, that is rarely the case. I've seen so many movies that has received outstanding reviews because it was controversial and turned out quite disappointing to me. And there are some that are just, well, plain sick... Sick movies come from sick minds, where else would they come from? Example: Hostel. I swear, that movie is just one of the sickest movies I've seen. I have seen a lot of movies that are like that and I regret it so much. I don't think that should be considered entertainment and if it did entertain you then, I'm sorry but that is just plain crazy.
Well, I hope you like this movie that I've recommended. Please do share your thoughts about it after you've seen it! I would love to hear what you think about it.
