New to Netflix – December 2012

Happy holidays! Joseph here, and I’m bringing you the new stuff to look for on Netflix Instant Streaming for the month of December. We got some good stuff coming out, so go ahead and grab some hot chocolate and a piece of candy cane, and let’s get into it.

 

12/1 – The Last of the Mohicans (1992) – When rugged frontiersman Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) saves the Munro sisters – two newly arrived English settlers – from a Huron ambush, he ends up in the midst of the battle between the British and the French for control of the American colonies. Director Michael Mann’s first-rate production also stars Madeleine Stowe as the Munro sister who wins Hawkeye’s heart, and Wes Studi as the Huron warrior who has a score to settle with her father.

2 Comments on New to Netflix – December 2012

  1. I remember loving The Presidio, but forget what it’s about. I wonder if I watch it again, if I will remember anything about it, or if it will be new. I really need season 7 of How I Met Your Mother, and still hoping that I watch the English Patient that Colin Firth will crash his plane in a wet shirt.

  2. The Adventures of Tintin was a pretty fun movie. Even if it’s just for background noise, I recommend it. John Williams is a maestro, and his score is spectacular.
