A thread to recommend decent movies on Netflix / Amazon Prime?

    No need for a TV License if you don't watch or record a live broadcast, so cancelling License and using Netflix leaves plenty of change in the pocket :)

    You are right there. Unless you have endless hours for US 'boxed sets', the movie choice is lacking, and will get worse now a deal with some studios has finished or due to finish. I cancelled my Netflix earlier this month, and now just use Amazon on a pay as you watch basis. Like Blockbuster, without the travel to the shop.
    Having said that, before I cancelled, I watched 'What we did on our holidays', which I thought was pretty good. Early on, it was easy to spot that it was written by those responsible for 'Outnumbered'.

    Fargo and Better Call Saul are pretty good TV shows.

    A while back I got a good way through Fargo, enjoyed it at first but gradually lost interest.

    The only thing I can think of that might appeal is Sabotage, featuring a really old and haggard Schwarzenegger. Nasty and brutal, but the best he's done for ages.
    And just to test your water - so to speak - in the completely opposite direction ; try 'Priceless' (or 'hors de prix') , a truly delightful slice of French whimsy.

    Just watched 'I Dream of Wires' - an excellent documentary about the rise, fall and rebirth of the electronic modular synthesiser :)

    Netflix is excellent. It's Sky TV that is overpriced and outdated.

    I watched Black Book last night and it's a great film about NAZI occupation of Holland and the lead actress was superb.

    Cheers, I will check that out - we watched Drive last night with Ryan Gosling, violence was way too graphic for my taste.

    Just noticed North Face is available on Amazon Prime, I own on blu ray. Now this is a film well worth watching.

    If you havent seen it? I can recommend Flame and Citron (Netflix), story about Danish resistance in World War II

    Yes, Black Book is excellent.

    A good Danish one is Flame and Citron, but I don't know if Netflix have it. Seek it anyway.

    edit ; lol beaten to it I see above and that they do have it.

    I was also going to recommend ’The Hunt’ starring Mads Mikklesen of Flame and Citron but it seems to have sadly left Netflix.

    The Hunt - Guardian Review

    £1.99 to stream on Amazon

    I Dream of Wires.

    History of Synths from the 60s onwards.

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    Overdosed on 'Narcos'. Started on one episode a night, then found I was up to three a night in no time.
    Separately, I see 'El Chapo' sustained facial injuries during a failed recapture. I imagine someone is going to pay dearly for that...

    gassor There may be more posts after this.

    Mr Robot impressed me, although I'm told it doesn't hold it's grip all the way through the series, seems pretty impressive after the first episode. It's about a drug addled hacker taking on an evil corporation that is equated with Apple.

    Good documentary on Netflix by PBS, called First Air War.

    Shows a team in New Zealand who built as exactly as they could, using techniques of the day, various WW1 aircraft. They tested one against the other of each generation of aircraft. They saw how technology and operating techniques advanced incrementally.

    It is a very interesting documentary and well shot.

    Documentaries are actually one the better things about Netflix. Search around - there are some stonkers.

    madmike I feel much better now, I really do...

    Two good films we watched...."In Order of Dissappearance" Scandi-noir film, the guy from the killing, the one with the removal company, and "Mystery Road" an ozzy detective film, very like True Detective.
