In this episode we give you a "bundle pack" similar to when we did "3 Summer Movies", "3 Holiday Movies", and "3 Romantic Movies." This time it's all about those Netflix OG's...Also we give Lord Lyndon travel tips in advance of his trip to the States.
Good Netflix Original movies are few and far between but there are certainly some gems as we have previously discussed (Mudbound, The Fundamentals of Caring, Kodachrome). In this episode we give you 3 more worth considering for your movie night!
Cargo - Martin Freeman must carry precious cargo through the zombie infested Australian outback.
Anon - Clive Owen is a detective in a futuristic society where crime is nearly impossible since everyone's memories are recorded in real time. Amanda Seyfried is a human hacker and the number 1 suspect in a series of murders.
Gerald's Game - A suspenseful showing of a Stephen King book about a romantic getaway that takes a terrifying turn.
In this episode we talk Kodachrome and how it might be one of our favorite Netflix Original movies...though that might not be saying too much. We also talk about our favorite road trip movies...and ask Lyndon if roadtrips are even a thing in Europe.

Two of the things that have defined Down the Hall Podcast are the "deep find" movie night picks and also the several actors, directors, and writers we have had the pleasure of interviewing. This episode represents both of those things! We "Take Back Movie Night" with Dusky Paradise on Amazon Prime and we are joined by the Director and Writer, Gregory Kirchhoff.
