streaming movies Scary MovieEverett


Comedy: 'Scary Movie' (2000)
The "Scary Movie" series quickly turned from crude and clever to inane and desperate with each additional film. However the first film is still the funniest with the most clever movie spoofs and parodied the horror genre better than any other satire movie. From Anna Farris' goof on "The Matrix" to the many ridiculous jokes on "Scream," "Scary Movie" is that perfect non-scary movie to get you pumped for the Halloween season.

streaming movies The French Connection 2Everett


Action: 'The French Connection II' (1975)
Picking up where the 1975 film left off, Gene Hackman's narc Popeye Doyle heads to Marseille to track down the drug kingpin Frog One (Fernando Rey). However, Doyle is captured by Frog's men and forcefully drugged in hopes of turning him into a junkie. While not as action packed at the first "French Connection," this sequel is equally entertaining and worth a rewatch for the finale of the film.
