Netflix Instant: Cool TV and Movie Picks

Jonesy here for my awesome Netflix Instant picks for the week. All three of these I absolutely enjoy for very different reasons.

A film in the same category as BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET; a couple meets and spends the day together talking about life, art, and love. However, this cerebral film begins to play with the viewers as we begin to ask questions about the couples relationship. Have they met before? Are they married? Or are they just playing with each other and us. Smart and charming.

Way before THE FIGHTER or WALK THE LINE, Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon were a couple of kids in love in FEAR. This movie is the typical 90's thriller, and I cannot help but have a soft spot for this cheese. And it has one of my favorite lines of all time, "Nicole 4-eva."

At one point in my life, I wanted to be an astronaut. True story. (And I still want to go to Space Camp at some point). This mini-series explores the NASA missions including Ed White's space walk, Apollo 13, and the Challenger tragedy. It's breathtaking, captivating, and awe-inspiring.
