Netflix Fridays: What are We Watching Now?

First let me start off by saying, poor Henry Selick. Last week I incorrectly attributed the direction of "Coraline" to Tim Burton, when in actuality Mr. Selick was at the helm. Why did I make such an assumption? Because it was billed as "From the director of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas!'" That was Tim Burton, yes? Nope! Burton only came up with the story for "Nightmare," thus why it is entitled, "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" but Mr. Selick directed that one, too! Man, does this guy get the SHAFT! Anyhow, my apologies and I shall never trust Mr. Burton again. How could I ever have trusted the man behind the "Planet of the Apes" remake, anyway?

Here's what we're watching this week:

Layer Cake - One of the films that made Daniel Craig, "Daniel Craig." It's the story of a drug dealer who longs to ditch his illegal trade. But he can't do that without wrapping up just one more job involving a gargantuan stash of purloined ecstasy. Wackiness - or at least gun play -ensues!

Shoot 'em Up - So here's the deal: We had a date to go to our friend Stephanie's house to watch movies last weekend. She giddily described the awfulness of this particular choice knowing how partial we are to "Margarita Movies." But we got to chatting and somehow or another, the night got away from us did "Shoot 'em Up." Next day, we decide to look up the trailer to post on our Facebook "Margarita Movies" page and Shazzam! This movie has it ALL! Carrot guns, Oscar Nominated actors, Michael Bay worthy explosions, and a small child that needs protecting. Needless to say, it was quickly added, and rocketed up to the top of, our Netflix queue.
