Netflix dumps the majority of their new streaming titles on the first of the month, which mean there was a TON of stuff added since my last update. As such, I'm gonna keep my comments short and sweet:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

If you're a Poke-fanatic, you'll be pleased to know that Pokemon: Black & White and Pokemon: Indigo League are both now available.

Ghostbusters 2

With the tragic passing of Harold Ramis last month, what better time to go back and check out the second Ghostbusters flick? (The original is also available, BTW).

Not gonna lie: haven't seen it, don't know anyone that has, too busy to look it up on Rotten Tomatoes. With that said, it stars Simon Pegg so it can't be that bad, can it? Not to mention it co-stars Kirsten Dunst, Megan Fox, and Jeff Bridges.

Do you love Peter Dinklage on Game of Thrones? Then you owe it to yourself to check out this 2003 movie, which was his breakthrough role; Dinklage won nearly universal praise.

If you're in the mood for a scare, here are some quick recommendations. Despite becoming a pop culture joke, I still think The Blair Witch Project is scary as shit. And I haven't see it in years, but I was obsessed with the urban legend of the "Mothman" after watching The Mothman Prophecies over a decade ago.

Les Misérables

Did you love 2012's Les Misérables, with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway? Did you know there was a much shittier, non-musical version in 1998 starring Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush, Uma Thurman, and Claire Danes? No? Well, you're welcome.

Seriously, if you haven't seen these classics (or just feel like rewatching some quality cinema), here's your chance to remedy that situation.
