This Week's Netflix BroPicks

Everyone is always complaining that there is "nothing to watch on Netflix." Especially after a three-week Netflix binge during which you knocked out your entire Instant Queue. As a new feature here on Manwall, we are going to help you guys get through all the clutter and get to the good stuff. The guy stuff. No Matthew McConaughey rom-coms or sappy subtitled foreign movies, just the BroPicks.

 

1. Swingers: Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau before they got big make this buddy comedy a classic. Vince Vaughn tries to get his buddy to get over his ex-girlfriend by taking him on a weekend to Vegas where they dabble in the gambling, the drinking, and the waitresses. The interactions between Vaughn, Favreau and their friends alone make this movie worth watching, the countless hockey references just put the whole thing over the top.

 

2. Louie: Louis CK's FX "sit-com?" is becoming an instant classic as one of the ballsiest shows on television. Produced entirely by Louis without any network supervision, Louie is like a one-man Seinfeld if Seinfeld had two kids and a limitless amount of self-loathing and awkwardness. Each episode is broken up into two 15-minute episodes and includes Louis' unbeatable stand up. The whole thing is entirely too difficult to describe but definitely deserves at least a test viewing.

 

3. Midnight Cowboy: This 1969 Jon Voight-Dustin Hoffman classic was the first X-Rated movie to win an Oscar. Jon Voight comes to New York from Texas to become a big time hustler, only to lose all his money as soon as he gets here. Down on his luck, Voight becomes a male prostitute and has to move in with a constantly coughing con-man Dustin Hoffman. With incredible characters and a great story, this epic movie is a must for your instant queue.

 

4. How Beer Saved The World: Up for a documentary? This Discovery Channel special takes you through beer's long, and surprisingly productive, history. From the very first brew to zero-gravity space ale, this documentary is loaded with plenty of excuses for your love of beer the next time you're loaded. In fact, you'll quickly find out how beer was instrumental in the creation of math, medicine, laws, and even America.

 

5. Nick DiPaolo: Raw Nerve: Netflix has a solid library of good stand up comedy but too much of it is very mainstream and safe. Nick DiPaolo is anything but. He is easily one of the funniest and quickest stand up comedians around but it's his headstrong opinions and how much he doesn't care that no one agrees with him that is truly impressive. He may make you want to yell at your screen but no one does stand up better than DiPaolo.
