Netflix Instant: Cool TV and Movie Picks

Jonesy here with my Netflix Instant picks this week.  I'm all over the board here with a serious documentary, a semi-older sci-fi flick, and a classic comedy.  Enjoy!

Jesus Camp
A compelling and eye-opening documentary that takes a look inside an evangelical camp for children.  There are many types of evangelicals in the world, and this is just a snapshot of the extreme subset that we seem to hear about on the news or see on TV.  The documentary includes Ted Haggard, a famous (and scandalous) Evangelical leader.  If you've ever wondered where their values come from or how these adults end up the way they do, this documentary paints a much clearer picture.     


Supposedly based on a true story (actually that's what makes it more fun), FIRE IN THE SKY is the classic alien abduction movie.  It happens in a small town, in the middle of the know all the normal plot points.  However, the movie itself ends up being a pretty solid sci-fi film, and depicts a pretty, "experiment" scene. 

Mel Brooks's classic movie before it was a smash-hit musical before it was a movie again.  It's slap-stick, funny, witty, plus there's a musical about Hitler...what's not to love?
