The Omen is coming to Netflix streaming in September.
The Omen, made back in 1976 is a bit dated but still holds up well to the test of time as one of the premiere horror movies ever made.
The movie stars Gregory peck, and depicts a tale of a couple raising a child, named Damien whom they discover to be the spawn of the devil, the Antichrist.
To this day, likely due to the movie, Damien is not a name most parents choose for their children.
The Omen broke new ground in the horror genre with some of its more disturbing scenes, including one character hanging herself at a children’s birthday party and a decapitation of another character by a sheet of glass shown in slow motion.
The theme song of the Omen, Ave Satani has become iconic. The lyrics of the song are in Latin with Ave Satani meaning Hail Satan. Other Latin verses in the song include, Sanguis Bibimus, We drink the blood and Prode Corpus Satani, Bring forth the body of Satan.
Ave Satani was nominated for best song at the 1976 Academy Awards, losing out to Barbara Streisand’s Evergreen from A Star is Born.
If you like horror movies you should definitely check out The Omen, which is among the classics of its along with Cujo, Carrie, The Shining and The Exorcist.
The Omen will be available on Netflix streaming on September 1, 2012.
Hachi: A Dog's Tale
Hachi: A Dog’s Tale was recently listed on Entertainment Weekly’s Best Movies You’ve Never Seen list.
The movies stars Richard Gere as a college professor who adopts and abandoned dog.
The dog starts following Gere’s character to the train station each day and then waits for him to return from work and walks him home from the train station at the end of the day.
The story chronicles the fiercely loyal bonds some dogs develop for their owners.
Hachi: A Dog’s Tale is based on a true account of a dog in Japan that waited at the train station for his master to return each days for years after his owner had passed away.
Hachi: A Dog’s Tale is a tear jerker but it a must see if you’re a dog lover. And like Entertainment Weekly points out, it’s a good movie and likely one you haven’t seen.
Also check out the Netflix releases on streaming from August.
White Chicks stars the Wayans brothers, Shawn and Marlon as undercover FBI Agents masquerading as well, white chicks.
Although the movie won several worst movie of 2004 accolades it went on to make over $113 million dollars worldwide so even though critics panned it there are many viewers who must like it.
The movies is definitely dumb humor but it does have some redeeming moments that will make you chuckle, most notably a supporting role played by the always funny, Terry Crews.
Happy is an interesting documentary that tries to answer the question of what makes us happy or unhappy for that matter.
Contrary to popular belief it is not necessarily wealth. In fact one of the reasons for unhappiness is the culture of produce, consume, produce treadmill many in United States find themselves on. The United States, though one if the richest countries in the world ranks a lowly 23rd on a list of the world’s happiest people.
Happy explores individuals from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of India to determine who is happier and why. The results may surprise and educate you.
One the tenets of the movie and a statement that is true for many of us is “Medieval peasants worked less than you do”. In the age of such technological advances it doesn’t make much sense that we work hard now than our ancestors did a thousand years ago, but they didn’t have second mortgages and cell phone bills to keep up with either.
Klown is a raunchy comedy out of Denmark along the lines of The Hangover.
It is referred to as uncomfortable humor. The film was wildly popular in Denmark being seen by almost 20% of the population.
Klown is in Danish but as most of the humor is visual this should not distract from the film.
The rights to Klown have been purchased by Warner Bros and is scheduled to be remade for American audiences starring, Danny McBride.
The original Klown will be available on Netflix streaming on 9/25/2012.
