Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I watched 'Earthquake Bird’ this evening and quite enjoyed it, slow burner but loved the Japanese scenery and overall aesthetic, the characters were a little one dimensional however.

I've had this bloody Netflix service since April and I think I can count on one hand the number of things I've watched from start to finish...usually what happens is I'll fire up the app and then spend the next 30mins sitting there like a zombie scrolling through whats available, can't make my mind up, so turn it off...

 

I find Netflix's content a mile wide but an inch deep.

 

 

Scrolling around is definitely the fun bit. Until Better Call Saul.

I've always thought Netflix could do with a watch something random button. Possibly tailored to your likes, possibly not. You could even put in a feature that delays you switching the choice for around ten minutes so you really commit.

I think I preferred Netflix before it was mostly about pushing its own content;, although admittedly some of its own stuff has been brilliant.

My parents are in the UK. I kid you not, I check the UK netflix new arrivals EVERY week and have done for years. I cannot believe how bad it is, it honestly feels like I can only recommend about 2-3 films for them a year. I'm talking of ONLY films btw where they seem to only get films that are at least 3 or so years old or just awful. Canada netflix however, there is at least a handful of films every month that is relatively new and actually a well known good film even if it's not my cup of tea.

Capwn, there are loads of films on there from the last year or two (in fact there are 1500 titles from 2018/19 alone). The UK has the fourth largest library in the world and has for quite some time although the US and Canada are ahead significantly in their 1 & 2 spots.

 

The way Netflix organises them leaves something to be desired but that's where sites like newonnetflix come in handy.

 

Honestly, "There's nothing on UK Netflix" is a decision making failure rather than a paucity of choice although you could always teach your mum how to use a VPN I suppose.

I’m still on episode 24...I’m tempted to leave 25 & 26 for a Christmas treat.

 

Finished it last night. That's quite an ending.


There are two Evangelion films on Netflix.  The End Of... and Death (True).  Is there a correct order to watch these in, or should I avoid?  And what should I watch next?

End of Evangelion is the ‘real’ ending, made with a proper budget. 
 

Death (True) is a recap of the whole show in condensed form with some new interstitial scenes for cohesion. 
 

There are a few others too but basically as far as I recall everything after EoE is just reheated, recut and reused stuff from the show.

Watch End of and forget the other one. Unless you want to watch out of curiosity or whatever.

I’ve ordered both, I understand there is stuff fleshed out and nastier in Death & Rebirth, so I’m up for that - and I got the dvd for £1.50 on eBay.

Just noticed The Irishman is on UK Netflix. Been meaning to watch that. 

 

Yeah, they just added it today worldwide. They produced it, the cinema release was just a short run.

So I watched End of Evangelion, which was AMAZING - although I’m not sure if it’s more or less confusing than the original series ending in terms of understanding what happens. Probably more!

It all makes sense. It’s just that they put all the official stuff explaining it in the supplementary material of a PS2 game instead of the series and film.

I’m not sure if this is a recent thing but All the Money in the World is available now. Heads up!

Along with a third batch of The Toys that Made Us, there's also The Movies that Made Us.

 

New toy episodes focus on TMNT, Power Rangers, My Little Pony and pro wrestling.

Movies are Dirty Dancing, Home Alone, Ghostbusters and Die Hard.

HappyMerryWhatever is offensively bad. I can’t believe Netflix produced it in 2019.

 

Dennis Quaid is an obnoxious boomer cunt with regressive values, and his family tiptoe around him whilst he bullies his daughter’s nerd boyfriend - obviously none of which is funny or heartwarming. Oh and then there’s some mild homophobia as well just so we know who’s side of the joke we’re supposed to be on. Fuck this show.

Movies that Made Us, Home Alone episode, was amazing.

 

That Dennis Quaid sit’com’, got turned off after 3 mins or so. Pony!
