Geekflix – Top ‘Netflix’ Picks For March 2017

February is coming to an end. This means it’s time for Shamrock Shakes, four leaf clovers, and green beer. It also means new arrivals coming to Netflix. A new Marvel show is coming but there are a few other titles which deserve some attention as well.

Blazing Saddles (March 1st)

Blazing Saddles (1974) - Gene Wilder and Cleavon Little
Excuse me while I whip this out. Mel Brooks comedy western finds its way onto Netflix and if you haven’t taken the time to enjoy this comedy classic, you really should. Also, more of the late great Gene Wilder, an icon taken too soon.

The Craft (March 1st)

The Craft
The titular dark girl power movie of the 90s. The cult classic has gotten many mixed reviews over the years. You owe it to yourself to check it out and see if if was an underappreciated classic or it deserves the criticism levied against it.


Memento (March 1st)

Before director Christopher Nolan worked on Batman, he took us on a psychedelic ride of discovery. Watch as a man with anterograde amnesia who can’t learn anything new for long works to find a way to discover who killed his wife. It will be a trip you won’t forget.

This is Spinal Tap (March 1st)

This is Spinal Tap
This film goes to 11! If you need something to really make you laugh then check out the ultimate rock and roll documentary about a band who are just trying to stay on top. Check it out and see if it really is as good as people say it is.

Disney’s Pete’s Dragon (March 14th)

Pete's Dragon
Need something green for St. Patrick’s Day? Well you could always just watch this movie which features a giant green dragon in it. It counts right? If not, this new remake of a classic film may just help you get through the middle of the month blahs.

Disney’s BFG (March 15th)

The BFG Disney Movie
Not many gave this live action adaptation of a kids book the attention it deserved. Maybe a bit too much visual spectacle or fart jokes for some. Give it a watch and see if the BFG was a movie you’re regretting not checking out soon.

Lucha Underground (March 15th)

Lucha Underground
Do you love mexican wrestling? Who doesn’t? The Lucha culture has found a fanbase in America and this series is going to make a lot of them very happy. Give it a watch and before you know it you may be creating your own masked wrestling character to do battle in the ring.

Coraline (March 16th)

Before Kubo Of the Two Strings, studio Laika started with this film based on a book by comic book legend Neil Gaiman. If you didn’t give it the chance when it was in theaters you have to watch this film simply as a way to apologize to company. They’ll need sympathy after the Oscars when Zootopia takes come the gold.

Marvel’s Iron Fist (March 17th)

It’s the latest Marvel Netflix Original series. Do I really need to add more? Anyways, Danny Rand, the last Defender to be introduced before the crossover series will arrive and deliver some very impressive martial arts moves by the look of the trailer.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (March 24th)

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Before the idea of shared universes with film sequels, there was this gem which showed animated characters from many different studios coming together in one world. It’s a classic film and just might be what can help you survive to the end of the month and more new releases in April.
