A couple of my favorite things: NETFLIX and the Kindle

netflix-1

Figured I would say a few words on two of my favorite things…..Netflix and the Kindle.

I have been user of Netflix for several years now – going from receiving DVD’s in the mail to now only streaming movies. At around $10 per month for unlimited streaming of the thousands of movies, TV shows, documentaries, etc. it is a great deal. Many of you may remember a few months ago that I got rid of

Netflix Pick: Atlas Shrugged

as

If you have a Netflix account with Instant Streaming as part of your membership Atlas Shrugged can now be watched instantly. Some people loved this movie – some hated it. Myself – I though it was great.

Here is a summary of the movie:

Ayn Rand’s timeless novel of rational self-interest comes to life for a new millennium.”. The year is 2016, and America is on

Netflix Pick: Out of the Wild Survival Series

I have watched both Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment and Out of the Wild: Venezuela. These are a couple of very entertaining adventure series which set several strangers in the wilderness with limited resources.

The group of people have to rely on their resourcefulness to make it back to civilization alive, foraging for food, building makeshift shelters and battle harsh environments as they attempt to make it “out of the wild”.

Both of

Netflix Pick: The Colony……………

Colony

It has been a little while since I have posted a “Netflix Pick”. Netflix is an excellent deal in my opinion. For less than $10.00 per month you can access and watch thousands of movies, documentaries, program and more through your computer, TV, media player or entertainment system. Good way to save some entertainment dollars to spend later on survival & preparedness supplies.

For this

Netflix Pick: The Crazies

TheCrazies

I had little interest in watching “The Crazies“. I figured it was just another “people stumble on some backwoods inbred cannibals” movie.

I was wrong. Now – this is no Academy Award winning flick – but it has a good story and good action. Tied to “survival”? Massive disease spreading across the countryside with roving psycho’s bent on killing you….sure, that fits.

Netflix Summary: When a plane crashes in

Netflix pick: Ever Since The World Ended

This movie is filmed as a post-Apocalypse documentary. I watched it several months ago and found it rather disturbing. Some of the attitudes displayed by characters seem unbelievable to me – but this takes place 12 years after a devastating plague – so who knows how people would react.

Ever Since The World Ended

“Twelve years after a plague has devastated the world’s population, 186 people remain in San Francisco, two of

Netflix Pick: Them!

Them! 4

I saw this movie well over 30 years ago and it scared the gajeebers out of me. Yes……the gajeebers. What a mess.

The idea of giant ants taking over the world – well, good to watch on TV – not so good in real life I suppose. Old black and white movie, good acting, great story. Well worth a watch.

Netflix summary: The inhabitants of a

Netflix Pick: On the Beach

This is a classic.

Netflix summary: In this 1959 doomsday classic, a U.S. submarine led by Capt. Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck) surfaces near Melbourne, where the passengers learn that nuclear war has wiped out most of humanity. And it won’t be long before radiation kills the Australians as well. The tense drama features standout performances by Peck, Ava Gardner as Towers’s lover, Fred Astaire as a guilt-wracked scientist and Anthony Perkins and

Netflix Pick: Carriers

carriers_ver4

I just got finished watching Carriers on Netflix. I really did not expect much – but this was a pretty good movie. Read the summary below:

Movie Summary: A deadly virus has spread across the globe. Contagion is everywhere, no one is safe and no one can be trusted. Four young attractive people race through the back roads of the American West to the pounding beat of a vacation soundtrack. Their aim

Netflix Pick: Red Dawn

Red Dawn, movie, survival movie

One of my all time favorite movies……Red Dawn.

Netflix Summary……..”When a group of high schoolers witnesses Soviet and Cuban paratroopers descending on their small Colorado town and systematically setting off World War III, the teens — led by Jed Eckert (Patrick Swayze) — take food and whatever weapons they can find and hightail it into the hills to wait things out. But with the communist invaders on their trail, Jed and his

Netflix pick: The Postman

1181523

My Netflix pick this week is available only in DVD – no streaming. Kevin Costner stars in the apocalyptic action/sci-fi movie – The Postman.

Here is a brief summary from Netflix:

In the year 2013, amidst the desolation of a decimated, post-apocalypse United States, rogue groups of armed men prey on individuals. The largest of these — the Holnists, led by General Bethlehem (Will Patton) — seeks to rule

Netflix pick: Survivorman

What knife is Les Stroud holding? Anyone know?

I have watched many of Les Stroud’s Survivorman and just found out that I can stream episodes instantly to my laptop or TV. Looking forward to watching many more.

What knife is Les Stroud holding? Anyone know?

 

One of the things I have really liked about this series is the method which it is filmed – Les is out there by himself. That provides an “edge” and realism to the situation that is

Netflix pick: The Omega Man

The-Omega-Man-(1971)-picture-MOV_190c3c59_b

In an effort to try to make these Netflix picks all “Watch Instantly” movies and TV shows – I present The Omega Man. The recent smash hit I Am Legend was a remake based on this Charlton Heston movie. I actually watched I Am Legend first – and although I really enjoyed it – I actually liked the older version better.

Here is a summary of The Omega Man:

Charlton Heston plays

Netflix pick: The Edge

Netflix is an excellent deal in my opinion. For less than $10.00 per month you can access and watch thousands of movies, documentaries, program and more through your computer, TV, media player or entertainment system.

This week I am recommending an older movie called The Edge.

This movie lends itself to thinking about wilderness preparedness. Here is a summary:

When their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, fashion

Netflix pick: Survivors

survivors_uk-show

I loved this series – which takes place in England. It is available in both DVD as well as instant streaming.

Here is a summary of the 6-episode 2008 series:

When a deadly strain of flu decimates the world’s population, a scrappy group of survivors find themselves struggling to exist in a world devoid of electricity, running water and government services. Starting from scratch, the living — including a desperate mom (Julie
