Since Netflix shut down the RSS feed for new releases, it's not as easy to spot the newest additions. However, when you check it every day on Roku (like yours truly), it becomes fairly easy to spot the new movies when they pop up. Here are a list of the 12 newest movies to be added for your viewing pleasure!

Fun Facts About 'Muppets Most Wanted'

Submitted by melissa on March 22, 2014 - 5:47pm


 

The Muppets started out in television in 1955, but got their big break with "The Muppet Show" on CBS in 1976. Their first movie was three years later, aptly named, The Muppet Movie. The franchise has had it's ups and downs but had a big revival with 2011's The Muppets, directed by James Bobin. The director returns again with Muppets Most Wanted, a simple story that highlights absolute ridiculousness and fun while also throwing in all the musical numbers and cameos you've come to know and expect. If you love the Muppets at all, you'll enjoy this.

Review: Divergent

Adaptations of young adult novels is a hit or miss prospect these days with more misses than hits. The amount of young adult novels that fail is an exceedingly high percentage For every man, woman and child who pick up a new book series, the better the chances that the Hollywood machine will gobble it up and spit something lackluster out to turn a profit.  Hollywood executives have a theory, the more times they try to recreate a past success (think The Hunger Games and Twilight), the better the chance of one of them actually succeeding. A winning strategy? Only time will tell, but this weekend brings us another hopeful, the first novel in Veronica Roth’s series of dystopian thrillers, Divergent from director Neil Burger (Limitless).

Review: Jérôme Bonnell's Subtle Understated Drama 'Just a Sigh'

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on March 20, 2014 - 10:09pm


 

Say what you will about the French, they make some damn fine films. This is a realization that many may make on their own if they just sit down and get through the subtitles. In light of this, I am here to help shed light on films such as Just a Sigh, a slow burn drama tinged with romance that earns every bit of what it gives.

Alix (Emmanuelle Devos) is a struggling actress, following her passion despite the fact that it pays little and affords her no luxury. Frequently on the road, she is away from her beau, the unseen Antoine (voiced by Denis Ménochet). On a quick trip back to Paris in an attempt to see him, she encounters a man (Gabriel Byrne) on the train. He looks distraught and she can tell that something very bad has happened to him. Their eyes meet several times, but they say nothing to one another. Once the train stops, Douglas (as we later find out his name) approaches Alix to ask for directions to a certain church. When they are interrupted by a nosy man who gives Douglas the directions, Alix leaves. After trying to touch base with Antoine as she has no money and needs some to take her mother to lunch and get back to Calais where she will be performing in a play that night, she is drawn to go in search of Douglas.
