I visited my brother in PA just after Christmas and watched a bunch of movies on Netflix.
The Secret To A Happy Ending - Drive-By Truckers documentary
Safety Not Guaranteed - A quirky little indy film directed by the guy who is directing Jurassic Park 4
Tucker and Dale vs Evil - Another quirky indy too convoluted to try describing.
The Avengers - Because it's a really fun movie.
Cabin In The Woods - Not a bad movie until it takes a complete u-turn at the end and completely falls apart.
