As we prepare for another Academy Awards ceremony (and one in which a black-and-white silent movie might win Best Picture for the first time in decades), take a look back at some Oscar winners of yesteryear. We would like to thank the Academy‚ and Netflix for the instant streaming.
This weekend: The return of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (shake your head at Jar Jar Binks in 3D), Denzel reprises the role of the baddie for Safe House, Woody Harrelson is the worst as one of LAPD’s finest in Rampart and try to remember your promise with The Vow.
Darth Maul was pretty excellent, but otherwise this was the beginning of a highly questionable trilogy. Hey – as of this weekend you can question it in 3D.
A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik’s vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert.
Steven Soderbergh delivers a clever, hot-blooded action flick that just might make a movie star out of MMA champion Gina Carano.
The weekend brings us Haywire, Underworld: Awakening, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Red Tails.

Thank god there’s another apocalyptic viral disaster movie coming. A chef and a scientist fall in love as an epidemic begins to rob people of their sensory perceptions.

We saw in a dream that you wanted a list of movies that feature guys and girls with telepathy and other psychic powers, so we thought we’d oblige as soon as possible lest we become tormented with more visions of your intense wanting. Develop your sixth sense on Netflix.
