…. Apocalyptic Action Film How It Ends

"A mysterious disaster strikes the United States. A pregnant daughter goes missing 2,000 miles away. Time for a road trip.

That's the basic setup of How It Ends, an upcoming apocalyptic disaster movie from Netflix. It's directed by David M. Rosenthal, and Forest Whitaker stars as a father with a military background who takes his daughter's husband (Theo James) on a trip to rescue her when a mysterious event knocks out power and communications. Here's the trailer…."

Interesting. I usually like his films. I don't know about "mysterious disasters" though. At some point the disaster should be explained to some extent, just like invading countries should be called something and not just a "coalition".*

Well Netflix better make some changes soon. Most of the English language films seem to be just second rate leftovers, like made-for-tv or the straight-to-dvd types, and about a third of all the films these days seem to be foreign language knock-offs.

The film descriptions on Netflix don't tell you what language the film is, and there are times when I simply don't want to divide my eyes between the scene and the subtitles, specially if it's an action or thriller film.

There should be a way to narrow the choices by language, maybe I just haven't found it yet. Just like they should stop offering you a long list of film suggestions when those same films are already in your list. Well, then again, if they did all those things it might reveal to viewers just how thin their selections really are.

* I'm referring to "Tomorrow When The War Began" and other movies that don't want to paint anyone as the "bad guy", unless the bad guys are the US, UK or some European country.

+1 Cacique! Personally, I'm fed up with their inability or unwillingness to show the dubbed versions of what I perceive to be interesting movies & shows! They also need to refrain from flooding their service wiyh Korean teenager soap operas! ENOUGH ALREADY! Rant finished!
