March is right around the corner, and with every new month comes new movies. Netflix will be taking down some great titles this month like Jumanji and all of the TED talks series, but in their place will be a bunch of classic movies, guilty pleasures and laugh-riot cheese-fests.
So get ready to sit on your butt next weekend and watch some awesome TV. Here are the best movies coming to Netflix this March.
Scarface (March 1)
"Say hello to my little friend!" And say hello to one of the most hyper-violent depictions of the 80's drug scene ever. Al Pacino plays rags to riches Colombian Tony Montana, who stabs, sniffs, and shoots his way up the drug trade ladder. "Scarface" is director Brian De Palma's remake of the classic gangster flick from the 30's. This 80's update is violent, vulgar, gritty, overacted and overproduced but it's a hell of a ride. The movie is indeed flawed, but it's worth watching for Pacino's hammed up performance alone. A must watch if you're into gangster films as this is now considered a classic.
Good Burger (March 1)
The one and only spinoff movie that came from Nickelodeon sketch show All That, "Good Burger" is a B movie gem. The plot involves a failing burger business' two employees that try and save it, played by Keenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. The movie is essentially a vehicle to feature the two then young actors and their comedic chops. Mitchell plays unforgettable clueless Ed, the lovable loser who greets everyone as "dude." Sure it got panned by critics, and technically speaking it's no Citizen Kane, but if you want a couple laughs without overthinking it, pop on "Good Burger".
Groundhog Day (March 1)
Unlike "Good Burger," If you like your comedies to have a message that makes you think about when the credits roll, you MUST WATCH "Groundhog Day." In one of the best scripts ever written, lonely and cynical weatherman Phil Connors is on assignment to cover the annual groundhog reveal. He finds that every time he falls asleep in his hotel, the next morning is always Groundhog Day. Phil must relive the same day over and over, learning more about the town, and learning more about himself. Next to "Lost in Translation" this is Murray's best role; Phil's character transitions from cynical snob to kindhearted and caring. I can't say enough good things about this one. Make sure you watch it come March.
Star Trek II: The Wratch of Khan (March 1)
"KHAAAAN!!!" The immortal line said by William Shatner's Captain Kirk perfectly captures this sequel's feel. This second film in the original Star Trek franchise is much more bombastic than it's subdued predecessor. There's more action, more chase scenes, more fights and more suspense. Kirk's team is caught off guard by their old enemy Khan, who is a genetically modified human from the past. Khan's mission is simple; revenge. The simplistic plot allows much more room for the audience to relate to the characters and actions in this sci-fi franchise. Fans and critics took notice, as this is now regarded as the best entry in the original Star Trek collection.
House of Cards, Season 4 (March 4)
This Netflix original has Kevin Spacey as congressman Frank Underwood who exacts revenge on people that have wronged him in the past. I tried watching the first couple episodes of this series when it originally aired, and to be honest I wasn't really into. I thought it was very slow moving, but maybe I didn't give it a fair chance. It's picked up loads of award nominations and critical acclaim, so maybe I should give it another shot when season 4 starts up this month.
Daredevil Season 2 (March 18)
Daredevil Season 2! Let's be honest, with all of House of Cards acclaim this is really the show that everyone is looking forward to in March. The first season took the Netflix community by storm thanks to great writing, good acting and a wonderful overall production. This season looks to be epic from the trailer, and will feature fan favorites like Elektra and The Punisher.
Pee-wee's Big Holiday (March 18)
Uh, yeah another Pee-wee movie. Yay? I have mixed feelings about this one. I love the original Tim Burton movie from the 80s, but was anyone really asking for another Pee-wee movie? This will be one of those movies I probably put on as a last resort while I'm heavily drinking.
