Okay, let’s start with the obvious about this “Dear White People” Netflix trailer… baby girl cute af! Oh, you thought ‘the obvious’ was the overt shot at White America that is the probable running theme of this series? NO. And if that offends you, I dare you to watch to the end and think about how MANY times White folks (esp. White college students) smear themselves and wear blackface. That’s in here, too. Think that might offend some of us?
Well if you don’t, or don’t get it, f**k yo’ feelings, esp. if you cancelled your Netflix subscription over this.
This is gonna be some aw-hell-naw kind of programming!
Netflix is doing the MOST! Next up from its Marvel Universe promgramming: Iron Fist. Nice trailer to whet our appetites for the newest of Marvel’s team of Defenders.
Fifteen years after being presumed dead in a plane crash, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) mysteriously returns to New York City determined to reclaim his birthright and family company. However, when a long-destined enemy rises in New York, this living weapon is forced to choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist. Marvel’s Iron Fist premieres March 17, 2017 exclusively on Netflix.
Wonder why they didn’t go all Captain America with the title, like ‘Iron Fist: The Last Defender’… yeah? nah? Ah well, it will be up for some serious binge-watching in mid-March. Netflix & NO chill!
Now that’s what we’re needing more than ever! Damn right, Bill Nye “Saves The World” and drops the science… AND the mic! With a White House and U.S. Congress that are sure to place ‘good business’ before good sense and what is good for the planet (note: good for the planet can be, and usually is, good for business), we need the return of Saturday morning Science to bring fun and knowledge to bear against all the anti-science out there.
Bill Nye – science guy, educator, mechanical engineer, and curator of curiosity – returns with a new show. Each episode of Bill Nye Saves the World tackles a specific topic or concept through lively panel discussions, wide-ranging correspondent reports from a crackerjack team, and Bill’s very special blend of lab procedure and sly personality.
Bill Nye Saves The World arrives April 21, only on Netflix.
Plus, look at all the guest stars that will be coming through. Score for Netflix. We’re ready for April already. Peep the trailer.
Not sure how Hollywood figured out that we’d need something a bit more palatable to wash away the nasty politics of the current U.S. Presidential Campaign. But then again, looking back, how could we not. At the very least, we’ve known and come to realize that a wildly popular – and by most accounts credible & and accomplished – President and First Lady were leaving the White House. We knew that there were no contenders to take up residence with the Obamas’ mix of composure, competence and charisma. That was sad enough.
And just when we thought we’d dug through the mud & sh!t and hit rock bottom, somebody threw down a jackhammer so we could dig for oil and bodies and get even nastier. Did you SEE the 3rd Presidential Debate? The candidates can’t even shake hands. But that phase is over now. Early voting has begun and the dust will settle after November 8th. Just in time for us to enjoy some farewell level good cinema.
Remember the future First Couple’s first date movie (“Southside With You”) we posted on here? Well, Netflix is bringing us another back, back in the day flick… talking about way back when Barack Obama was “Barry.” It won’t have as softened a tone as the aforementioned ‘date movie’ but viewers can draw strength knowing that even their President had it rough.
A young Barack Obama, known to his friends as “Barry,” arrives in New York City in the fall of 1981 to begin his junior year at Columbia University. In a crime-ridden and racially charged environment, Barry finds himself pulled between various social spheres and struggles to maintain a series of increasingly strained relationships with his Kansas-born mother, his estranged Kenyan father, and his classmates. Barry is the story of a young man grappling with those same issues that his country, and arguably the world, are still coming to terms with 35 years later. On Netflix December 16.
Check out the trailer above. Should be good watching.
Historical hooray for the 13th Amendment, right? Because it freed the slaves…right? But wait. Hold the Constitution a minute. What if the passage of the 13th Amendment actually gave way to 150 years of oppression of Black people? That’s what Ava DuVernay’s documentary “13TH” posits. And it’s not ‘what if’ rather ‘what it is.’ Watch the Netflix trailer above. Wow…
The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary “13TH” refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

So your hero can take a punch? Our guy Cage… can take a bullet (a bunch of ’em… and a lot of punches)!

Whoa. Wait. WHAT? What do you mean that Daredevil Season 2 trailer we just posted on here was just Part 1… like there’s a Part 2? Oh there is? Daaaaaamn! And it’s rawer than the first. See for yourself above, and do what you gotta do to get ready for #NetFlixNoChill on March 18th!
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen.
Season 2 of “Daredevil” is gonna make it Netflix with no chill! Look at the trailer maaaaan! Are you seeing The Punisher emerge in the Frank Castle character. Witness an Elektra so fine that Daredevil can ‘see’ her! Whew, life is a real roller-coaster for our man Matt.
Looks funky, fresh and dope. Old school before Hip-Hop had an old school. This should be a great look for Netflix subscribers.
Told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens, The Get Down is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City.
Yep, Baz Luhrmann and this coming project just ensured that there will be more #NetflixAndChill sessions coming later this year.
