Another varied week in the world streaming media sees a mixture of highbrow and lowbrow, old and new, fun and deadly films and series debut in Netflix territories around the world.  Archer suavely sashays into the UK and Mexico; Scandanavia sees some classic, restored film noir; The Netherlands gets one of the best live action Disney movies ever made.  Canada sees Conan return to the fold, Ireland gets beefy Sly Stallone arm wrestling his way to solving his domestic woes; and the the US sees Laura Linney, Ernie Hudson and Tim Curry head off to the jungle to check in on the local 'Super Apes.'

New In The USA: CONGO

Frank Marshall's big 1990s blockbuster where everything seemed to just fail to gel into anything had a lot of pedigree. A Michael Crichton novel, a swell cast of great character actors (Laura Linney, Ernie Hudson, Tim Curry, Bruce Campbell and Joe Don Baker) and a fair bit of cash.

But the jungle set story featuring smart apes, industrial grade super diamonds, and other bits of silliness never quite captured the imagination like Jurassic Park or Independence Day. It has its fans, even if popular culture has nearly wiped its existence away.

    "But the jungle set story featuring smart apes, industrial grade super diamonds, and other bits of silliness never quite captured the imagination like Jurassic Park or Independence Day. It has its fans, even if popular culture has nearly wiped its existence away."

    Hey now....talking monkeys, super cute Laura Linney what more do you need?

    hahhahahhahahha....fans?

    I didn´t know that......I´ve seen it twice...hahhahahhahahah....more than most.

    "After Joe Johnston worked as visual effects and art director on so many Steven Spielberg films but before he directed his nostalgic Americana via Captain America: The First Avenger, he made what is, to me anyway, the best live-action Disney movie ever made."

    I like it but not as much as you Mr Halfyard........it´s entertaining though.

    "It has a handsome hero, several Oscar winners including curvy Jennifer Connelly and charming Alan Arkin, a former James Bond in the villain role, and just for kicks Howard Hughes."

    Curvy Connelly is the keyword here.....hahhahah...no, seriously it has a great casting, I definetly think so.

    Thanks Mr Halfyard.

    In Canada it's the 2011 remake of Conan, not the Schwarzenegger classic.
