"First viewing - Nov. 25th This movie gets points for originality, making me laugh, a solid lead performance, and subtle social commentary. The pacing could be improved, and some of the acting is cheesy, but overall this was well worth checking out. Just a thought: Hey! It's the scientist responsible for Skynet! Currently streaming on Netflix"

" Netflix Instant Project 2013 Recommended by Mackenzi The first time hearing and looking up this film I thought it was going to be some kind of blacksploitation film. Only after reading the premise of this film did I become interested in checking this film out, so I decided to support this film for the Netflix Instant Project 2013. So, here is the first film I’m going to be seeing for the “Netflix Instant Project 2013” and I have to say this is a very interesting and enjoyable film. Thi"

"By Affirmative action R2D2: This movie is so New York in so many ways. You know what I mean. Alien comes to our planet and, by being essentially dissimilar, exposes social truths we, the "natural" inhabitants, have missed. This is "Tarzan", "Pollyanna", "K-Pax", "Superman", "Star Trek", "The Screwtape Letters", anything by which an author uses an "objective" narrator to make commentary on his/her "world". In this case a brother crash lands near Ellis Island (perhaps the first black "immigra"
