Netflix Movie Monday

I spent another late Saturday night scrolling through Netflix, trying to find a movie to watch.  I probably spend more time scrolling for movies and looking them up on than I actually do watching the movie I picked.  Harry Brown looked decent, and I wasn't in the mood to watch a Korean horror flick, so I decided to give it a go.

Harry Brown is about an old guy who likes doing old guy things...walking in the park, playing chess, and talking about the good ol' days with his friend.  He lives in an area with your typical English punks:  bad dental hygiene and worse attitudes.  Drug dealing and violence runs rampant, which has made everyone in area fearful for their safety.

Harry's wife was in a coma and on his way to visit her in the hospital, he has to take the long way, due to his fear of the gangs.  Before he gets there, she dies.  After Harry's BFF gets killed by some of the gang members, he's had enough.  He resorts to his former military hero background and goes vigilante style on them, without a Batman mask.  The movie has a decent story line, has good action and it's always fun to watch loud-mouthed Brits get beat up by an old man.


  1. I had the same trouble with Netflix before I switched to DISH. I kept scrolling and scrolling and scrolling, but could never find anything new or great to watch. I hear that from a lot of Netflix customers, but I'm very happy now with DISH and the Blockbuster @ Home movie package. It costs less per month than Netflix, and gives me over 100,000 movies, games and TV shows. My boss at DISH told us all about it earlier this year, and it's been a lot of fun so far. I love that there are new titles being added all the time, and my wife loves the specific parental controls. Overall, we love BB @ Home, and would never go back to Netflix.

  2. No Breaking Bad, no Walking Dead=no pay for Dish.
