This edition of our biweekly Netflix column focuses on underrated titles popping up in various streaming markets from around the world. We kick things off with an underrated Roger Moore 007 title before moving into Blade Runner-esque sci-fi, Brazilian gangsters, an Oscar nominated butterfly effect drama, rare book investigators, Chicago politics, string theory with Jared Leto, and the proverbial much, much more.

New In The USA: LIVE AND LET DIE

It's 007 vs. Harlem pimps, Voodoo sorcerers, psychic virgins, and good ol' boy sheriffs down South. It's the one where Bond escapes a sticky situation by running on the heads of crocodiles. Yet there is something earthy about this one that sets is apart from the rest of the Roger Moore era, it being jolly old Roger's first kick at the can.

Live and Let Die is silly, vaguely racist, and unabashedly sexist (welcome to the early 1970s, or most 007 adventures for that matter) but the centerpiece boat chase sequence is some of the best action the series has ever offered and that McCartney song still sizzles.
