Netflix Instant TV and Movie Picks

Now that the holidays are almost over, it's time to face a new year of movies. Rather than head to the mall this weekend to stand in endless lines to exchange gifts, I vote to hang out at home, kickback, sip on leftover eggnog, and watch some awesome movies.

This was recommended to me by a college friend when we were talking about the passing of Peter O'Toole. This film gave O'Toole one of the his eight nominations, and going off the recommendation, is one of his stronger performances. 

This was one of my favorite documentaries from The Dallas International Film Festival a couple years ago. It follows four high schools and various theatre students during their musical season leading up to the Freddy Awards, which are like a local version of the Tony Awards. It's a sweet little film which showcases the joys and hardships of being a high school theatre student.

I feel a tad bit embarrassed that one of my 6th grade students has seen this movie, yet I have not. Now, I can remedy that before I head back to school. Plus, I'm a sucker for early 90's special effects.
