This Week's Netflix BroPicks: May 3

Another week, another hundred hours of Netflix awesomeness to get to. NBA Playoffs start later? No baseball today? Your thumbs hurt from dominating Mass Effect 3? No problem. Let's get to the best that Netflix has to offer the Brommunity this week.

 

Archer: If you like dirty cartoons, you'll love Archer. Sterling Archer is a smooth and self absorbed spy who happens to have a weird relationship with his mother/boss Malory Archer. Other characters in the James Bond cartoon spoof include his ex-girlfriend Lana Kane and other agents like Ray Gillete, Cyril Figgis, and Pam Poovey.

 

Patrice O'Neal: Elephant in the Room: Before he died of a stroke last year, Patrice O'Neal was called the funniest and most underrated comedian by comics like Chris Rock, Louie CK, and Jim Norton. You probably know him from The Office, Arrested Development, and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn but his first one-hour Comedy Central special is definitely the greatest part of his legacy. No one turns the mirror on an audience like Patrice, this one is a must see.

 

BASEketball: Before South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker ventured into musicals, they did movies. Obnoxiously silly ones. Down and out losers Coop and Remer start a new sport that combines basketball and baseball. Soon, the sport takes off and becomes a national spectacle with sports politicking and corporate sponsorships and everything. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.

 

The Fighter: Marky Mark goes all out as famed boxer Irish Micky Ward. The movie is a classic Cinderella story as Ward, a stepping stone for "real boxers" goes for the gold. If you liked Rocky or Cinderella Man, this is the movie for you. If you are a fan of good acting, this movie is also for you - Christian Bale as crack addicted former boxer Dicky and Amy Adams as Micky's foul mouthed girlfriend steal the show.

 

Exit Through The Gift Shop: Go inside the emerging world of street art in this Banksy-directed film about up-and-coming "artist" Thierry Guetta. While Guetta is a fairly annoying character, the film focuses more on the world of street art and artists like Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and Invader. Good stuff.
