You have found this weeks entry for New To Netflix! Not that we are actually new to Netflix, we're just happy, able, willing to help you find out what kind of 'Twitch-y' material is coming to the big red virtual envelope in the streaming-room. 

It is only the second entry in this nascent (but hopefully helpful) tool from us to you, and we are expanding. Now serving our Nordic readers, our Mexico and Brazil readers along with Canada, the USA and the UK. Now, more than ever, this column highlights the best of the new films added to the Netflix service in your territory.

This week: Monsters, Aging Beefcake, Tae Kwon Do Rock & Roll, Apocalyptic Bible Stories and what strange things happens when you put Graham Greene, Tom Stoppard and Otto Preminger together on the same film.

New In The USA: Miami Connection

I have not actually seen this myself, but it seems to be popular in Twitch circles and amongst net-savvy cinephiles, so here is a snipped from our own Charlie Hobbs' review from Fantastic Fest:

There is nothing better at the end of a long night of rockin' out to songs about Tae Kwon Do and friendship, than a good old fashioned pizza party at your adult home for orphans/grown-up clubhouse. You really know how to bring a family together, Grandmaster YK Kim. Whether it is uncomfortable sounding, clearly improvised teasing from untrained actors, or playing "got your nose" onstage using your feet and the nose of your emotionally fragile keyboard player, you know just how to make me smile.

Sure, Miami Connection isn't perfect. A lot of the dialogue is badly overdubbed, many of fight scenes are poorly choreographed, the script is non-existent, and no one on screen could act their way out of a paper bag, but all these imperfections are what makes it stand out.

Bonus - Quality Trash Cinema Also on Netflix USA: John Flynn's classic revenge pot-boiler Rolling Thunder, as well as the Tak Sakaguchi starring Japanese splatter flick Dead Ball also popped up this week in the US.
