Title: Netflix Recommendation Thread
Post by: McGrupp on June 22, 2011, 08:51:05 PM
I know a bunch of us here use netflix for instant streaming. I thought it might be nice to have a thread dedicated to giving recommendations for things to watch that are available to stream instantly online. TV shows, documentaries, movies, etc...

I watched "Revolution" last night... it was ok. Pretty cool documentary with first-hand footage of hippies. Not super well done or anything, but def entertaining.

Got nothing to do tonight, and looking for another recommendation. Hit me!

The Union: The Business Behind Getting High (2007)

Filmmaker Adam Scorgie explores the illegal marijuana industry in British Columbia, revealing how the international business is most likely more profitable than it would be if it was lawful in this enlightening documentary. Marijuana growers, law enforcement officials, physicians, politicians, criminologists, economists and celebrities -- including comedian Tommy Chong -- shed light on this topical subject in a series of compelling interviews.

A little long thorough, but very informative

If anyone is looking for a new show to follow (comedy, think: The Office, but with struggling actors in LA working the catering business), watch "Party Down". First two seasons available for streaming. I watched the first season in almost one sitting. Nothing super brilliant or new, but definitely entertaining.

I started the BBC series "Sherlock" last night, only 3 episodes but they are each around 1.5hrs.

I only saw the first episode but it's pretty damn good - hopefully I'll get around to the other 2 this weekend.



good thread idea btw!

Oh and Party Down is indeed hilarious, I thought the 2nd season was wayyyy better than the 1st (which I liked)

Most of the stuff available streaming that I gave 4 or more stars to were either classics (Clockwork Orange, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Johnny Dangerously, etc), TV shows (Lost, Family Guy, News Radio, Battlestar Galactica), or a documentary (Food Inc, Exit Through the Gift Shop), but there were a couple regular movies, too:
World's Greatest Dad - Robin Williams makes his son's accidental death look like a suicide
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the 2 sequels (Subtitled movies of the worldwide bestsellers)
The Lost - Jack Ketchum book, always a bit skewed
Cashback - strange and unique about someone who can stop time

I just realized the other day that they have Cheers available streaming.  I'm sure I've seen every episode and it's probably on 10 different TV channels everyday, but I haven't watched it in forever and am loving re-watching them sequentially.

On my xbox360 there is a 'Party' option. You can watch a movie with other people and talk to each other using the xbox headset. I think this would be cool, kinda like those LSTs where we watched old movies on AMC together.

Man on the wire.

Quote
Man on Wire is a 2008 British documentary film directed by James Marsh. The film chronicles Philippe Petit's 1974 high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of New York's World Trade Center. It is based on Philippe Petit's book, To Reach the Clouds, recently released in paperback with the new title Man on Wire. The title of the movie is taken from the police report that led to the arrest (and later release) of Petit, whose performance had lasted for almost one hour. The film is crafted like a heist film, presenting rare footage of the preparations for the event and still photographs of the walk, alongside reenactments (with Paul McGill as the young Petit) and present-day interviews with the participants.

I'm not sure if this one is an instant watch or if you need it mailed to you.  But if you haven't watched "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room" You should get on that train...it does a pretty good job of laying out the corruption, although the movie was made in 2005 so it doesn't have information on the governments case against them. Regardless, check it out and learn something.

You liked it? I wasn't sure how I felt about it.

I grew up in charlottesville, going in and out of that parking lot my entire life, always had a good relationship with those guys...recognized almost all of them and know one of them personally...

Seemed like the movie was trying too hard to prove a point... something about it just bugged me. A little too hipster-snoody. Trying too hard to make some big existential statement out of nothing. Maybe that's the whole point... dunno...

Worth a watch though. Phil, have you seen this yet?

They definitely overplayed the "UVA kids are douche bags" thing. I mean, there are a lot of douche bags at UVA, but they totally played it up for the sake of the film. I'm also convinced that a lot of the footage they used of the kids partying was not from UVA... you don't see kids with gelled up hair and pink polos with popped collars in cville. It's a "fratty" school, but not like that...

eta: I don't/didn't go to uva, just grew up in cville and know a lot of uva kids. they make them all seem very over-privileged in the movie, so maybe that's my problem with it.

Netflix is changing their pricing plans again, pretty much forcing you to choose streaming or DVD-by-mail.

Quote
Netflix Increases Prices for DVD-Streaming Plans by 60% (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-07-12/netflix-increases-prices-for-dvd-streaming-plans-by-60-.html)


Netflix Inc. (NFLX), the online and mail- order movie rental company, raised prices by 60 percent for U.S. subscribers who want both services, citing the costs to acquire and deliver films and TV shows.

Netflix will no longer offer a $9.99 package of DVD-by-mail and unlimited streaming, the company said in a statement today. Instead, more than 23 million subscribers will pay $15.98 monthly beginning Sept. 1 if they choose both options, or $7.99 for just one.

The company introduced a DVD-only plan for $7.99 on July 8 for new subscribers and extended that to current customers to reflect the costs of acquiring and delivering content digitally and by mail, Steve Swasey, a Netflix spokesman, said in an interview. Many customers want the option of streaming-only or DVD-only packages, he said.

“We wouldn’t have charged this when the streaming catalog was still lean,” Swasey said. “The streaming catalog is robust to the point where a lot of people won’t want DVDs anymore.”

Netflix, based in Los Gatos, California, needs to boost revenue to raise funds for expansion and the acquisition of new content, Tony Wible, an analyst with Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, said recently in an interview. He has a “sell” rating on the shares.

Since 2007, Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings has increasingly focused on delivering movies and television shows via the Web to televisions, set-top boxes and mobile devices.

The company, after instituting a November price hike, discovered subscribers still want DVDs by mail, according to a blog posting. It is creating a separate unit, run by Andy Rendich, chief service and operating officer, to handle the mail-order side of the business.

DVD Customers

“Given the long life we think DVDs by mail will have, treating DVDs as a $2 add-on to our unlimited streaming plan neither makes great financial sense nor satisfies people who just want DVDs,” Netflix said in the posting.

The company plans to expand its streaming-only service to all 43 countries and territories in Latin America and the Caribbean later this year. As of March 31, 97 percent of its customers were located in the U.S., according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Netflix rose $3.91 to $294.66 at 1:52 p.m. New York time in Nasdaq Stock Market trading. The shares were up 65 percent this year before today.

I was talkin to Alley about this last night actually after a few movie studios announced yesterday that they are going to significantly increase fees for license contracts now that netflix has some competition. It sucks but it makes complete sense if they want to continue streaming content. The instant catalogue is still kinda crappy imo (tons of movies but only a handful worth watching, again imo) but more revenue + more competition will hopefully mean a more full catalogue of instant content

That movie's great! Although, I don't know if someone who wasn't a David Byrne/Talking Heads fan already would be that into it.
The True Stories album is great too. It's actually Talking Heads performing the songs, not the movie versions.

If you like documentaries about food, and are interested in a critique of the way Americans eat, "Forks Over Knives" is the most effective documentary I've watched. So effective that my girlfriend and I have been eating 97% vegan for the past month, as an experiment. we've both lost weight and feel awesome, and actually are saving a lot of cash. strangely i also feel full all the time, and have found a lot of times when I thought I was "hungry" I was actually just craving salt, sugar, or fat. when I get "hungry" now its different, I don't feel like I'm "starving" as we like to say.

I won't spoil the documentary's message, but basically it attributes the increase in disease over the past century to the overuse of animal products in our food. Its fascinating and very convincing. It focuses more on the health side of things and less on the food product/FDA/industrial complex, but of course it touches on that as well.

highly recommended viewing.

Sounds interesting. I might need to check that out. I can't see myself ever giving up meat entirely, but my gf recently went through an elimination diet and it's made us both somewhat more conscious about what we're eating (though definitely her more than me).

As for Netflix, I recently blasted through all 5 seasons of 30 Rock, and of course I recommend it

It's Swedish or something so there's subtitles but it's a terrific take on the vampire thriller.

Don't be a dick and watch the shitty American remake entitled "Let Me In" instead. I will mock you mercilessly and you'll have wasted your own time taboot.

The remake is unnecessary. Everything that is good about it is lifted from the original and there is plenty that they omitted, changed, or fucked up. The effects are shitty compared to the understated and natural effects of the original. The tone of the film isn't as good and the performances of the two primary characters aren't as good either.

The remake is unnecessary. Everything that is good about it is lifted from the original and there is plenty that they omitted, changed, or fucked up. The effects are shitty compared to the understated and natural effects of the original. The tone of the film isn't as good and the performances of the two primary characters aren't as good either.
The remake is available streaming.  I still haven't watched it yet, but obviously I'll have to after watching the original, which was really well done.  Another foreign vampire flick worth checking out is Thirst(Bakjwi), which is Korean and is available streaming via Netflix.

If you like documentaries about food, and are interested in a critique of the way Americans eat, "Forks Over Knives" is the most effective documentary I've watched. So effective that my girlfriend and I have been eating 97% vegan for the past month, as an experiment. we've both lost weight and feel awesome, and actually are saving a lot of cash. strangely i also feel full all the time, and have found a lot of times when I thought I was "hungry" I was actually just craving salt, sugar, or fat. when I get "hungry" now its different, I don't feel like I'm "starving" as we like to say.

I won't spoil the documentary's message, but basically it attributes the increase in disease over the past century to the overuse of animal products in our food. Its fascinating and very convincing. It focuses more on the health side of things and less on the food product/FDA/industrial complex, but of course it touches on that as well.

highly recommended viewing.

Watched this a few weeks back. I'll 2nd the rec. Actually, HIGHLY recommend it for everyone interested in living a healthier lifestyle..

We watched "Chops" last night. It's about the Lincoln Center high school jazz ensemble comp, "Essentially Ellington." I enjoyed it. These kids tear it up. There is an awesome part where Ron Carter comes into their class and teaches them what swinging is all about that is just awesome. The comp is hosted by Wynton, and I always enjoy hearing him talk music. Such a brilliant, eloquent guy IMO. Worth a watch.

I had a friend that interviewed the director and said they were nutso, and also an ex that just partied down with them Friday night actually. Said the were supposed to be performing at some bar in Winston-Salem, by 10pm when they were supposed to go on stage they were ripped and could barely stand. So your assessment of "entertaining, funny, kinda sad" fits exactly.  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

Watched this last night. So good. Those kids are on their way to serious music careers. And yeah, the extra footage of the entire Carter teaching session was great. And you're completely right about hearing Wynton talk, I love hearing him discuss music, because he approaches it in such a philosophical way. They included the entire interview as bonus material, which was worth watch in itself. Thanks for the rec.

Yes, she really wasn't any kind of industry insider from that perspective. And it's kind of hard to take Rhonda Kallman seriously, knowing that New Century ran itself into the ground last year, but it was a good documentary on Dogfish Head anyway.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/89/DeadManPoster.jpg)

i had never heard of it unitl i saw it recoomended on netflix.
pretty cool "psychedlic western" as described by the director.

cast includes depp, billy bob, iggy pop, crispin glover, robert mitchum and others.

Also has a semi-improvisational and awesome soundtrack by Neil Young.
Great flick.

d'oh.  totally forgot to mention that.  i looked it up during the movie becasue i was digging the blown out distorted guitar accompaniment.  i was all, "neil young!  no shit, makes sense"  i read he played along while watching the movie to record it.  somehow it works really well with a black and white western.

wow! you only just found out about it? this movie RULES. everyone should see it. it's like a poem of a movie, a poem about death. my favorite Jarmusch movie. i actually just got this on blu-ray a couple months ago.

if you're not familiar with Jarmusch, i highly recommend watching Down By Law and Ghost Dog next.

cool.  will do.

I HIGHLY agree about Down By Law, although Ghost Dog didn't really do it for me for some reason. I'm in the minority on that one though, so maybe I should give it another shot.

I've been really hooked on The Killing lately.
(http://cdn-3.nflximg.com/en_us/boxshots/tv_sdp_s/70180183.jpg)
Quote
The Killing is based on the wildly successful Danish television series Forbrydelsen and tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation.
The Killing ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim's grieving family, and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them. (Source: AMC)

Been watching the first season of Downton Abbey with my girlfriend.

Hated the first episode, was bored to tears in the second, and I was hooked by the third. Probably not for everyone but we flew through the first season. Def took me a while to get into it.

George, you'll be delighted to hear that soon you'll be able to purchase Downton Abbey-themed products like bedding, kitchenwares and apparel (http://www.hometextilestoday.com/article/552052-PBS_Downton_Abbey_poised_to_become_home_lifestyle_brand.php?nid=2063&mid=241618333).

I just finished rewatching the first two series yesterday. Is certainly an interesting character choice. But I will say the contrast between Holmes and Watson is brilliant

And I love anything Moffat does.  Seriously.

The one about the ole miss football was well done. A lot of US history in there in terms of how far we've come with race relations and how far we still have to go. There's one about the Baltimore colts which is interesting. The one about the fab 5 is pretty solid too.

Title: Re: Netflix Recommendation Thread

That's my favorite for a couple reasons. 

First, the OJ show. 
Second, it was my birthday.
C - it's brilliantly done, documenting all the sporting events that happened throughout the day on June 17, 1994 contrast with the OJ story.  There is no voiceover, the narrative is driven by the media coverage.

I could list other good ones, but I'd almost be listing them all:

The Band that Wouldn't Die
Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL?
Without Bias
Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks
Silly Little Game
Four Days In October
Tim Richmond: To the Limit
Fernando Nation
9.79*
Elway to Marino

Really interesting, funny, well-paced, well-put together. JB's dad had some health problems (stroke? they don't know) and he requires care. Jim takes him on the road for one of his tours, as his caretaker when he's offstage. A really cool peek into eldercare and handling the increasing dependence of (instead of on) one's parent. They have good talks, bad talks, jokes, cursing, shitastrophes. And the guy's old school - a WWII vet. "Aw go shit in your bonnet."

"This documentary follows a group of European former hippies who relocated to India 40 years ago and never returned home. Once idealistic flower children, the now aging baby-boomers turned to the East in search of spiritual meaning, and many of them found what they were looking for, though in far different ways than they anticipated."

Narrative-wise, there aren't too many surprises here. Fortunately, it's subject matter I tend to find interesting (India, spiritual seekers, shunning conventionality, etc.)  The reason I recommend it is for the cinematography, which is superb. Goat-farming in the rain sounds a bit drab, but watching it put to film here is pretty stimulating. A treat for the eyes & ears, if not the intellect.

The synopsis:

Quote
Ginger Baker is known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, but the world's greatest drummer didn’t hit his stride until 1972, when he arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. After leaving Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced self-destruction, and countless groundbreaking musical works, eventually settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker! With every smash of the drum is a man smashing his way through life.   


I was blown away by this film. The director bullshitted his way into Baker's life and lived with him in South Africa for months to get it made. He wasn't a filmmaker going in. He had no idea what he was doing. He came away with a brilliant film and great narrative. He used animation at times to bring certain themes home... None of it was overbearing or cheesy. It was really good.

The film is a fairly straightforward biography told chronologically. Lots of footage from all of Baker's musical projects and mostly based on interviews done in his living room while the director lived with him. Interviews with all the major players in his life including all 4 wives, his kids, his bandmates, etc.

The director, producers, and key crew people were there for questions and answers afterward. This was the world premier, so we were the first audience to see it. The director was clearly not used to the attention. He was nervous talking in front of the crowd. His mom was there as were clearly a few dozen of his friends.

The producer did mention that they still don't have a signed release from Baker to release the film.  Let's hope that happens soon. This film needs to be seen. 

I give it 4 stars.

only because netflix is too cheap to renew. their business would be more successful if they went out of their way to provide the best content available at a reasonable cost. I'd pay a few dollars more per month if they would stop pussyfooting around their contracts and just shell out the cash necessary to provide the best content.

Consider that many content providers are negotiating with the competition when they deal with Netflix. Have a look at the partnerships that created Hulu and you'll be less surprised that the cost of content isn't always easy for them to drive down.

REINCARNATED
(http://snoopdogg.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/snoop_lion_reincarnated_album_cover_aria_070313_640x360.jpg)

Say what you want about the credibility of Snoop claiming to turn Rasta, the movie is pretty good. It's got a lot of cool moments: Snoop is welcomed by a grade-school orchestra playing local music, and freestyles over/with it; Bunny Wailer; Snoop's insistence that there be no rapping on this album. The editing is really good - props to VICE magazine's film division. I read the Rolling Stone article in last month's issue and it's hard not to agree with it; but it's also hard to 'gauge' another person's spiritual transformation. Suffice to say, I like stories of spiritual transformation and I will gladly watch anything filmed in Jamaica.

"Ginger Baker in Africa"

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51JHXKTA44L._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

Ho.
Lee.
Shit.
When I looked at the 'cover'* and imagined what the perfect documentary for me would be - that's exactly what it was. 8mm film, cacophonous sessions with local musicians, dotted on-screen map following his trail, GB reading his travel poetry over the music he recorded there during the car-driving-through-the-desert shots. He basically makes a 3-country drive, from Algeria south into Niger and then Nigeria where he meets up with Fela - playing and recording all along the way. This is 1971.

* That's kind of a funny word to use when describing a Netflix thumbnail.

This is one of those very frustrating but informative documentaries to watch.  It came out on PBS around the same time a similar documentary was out, "Citizen Koch", which David Koch tried successfully to keep from airing.  It basically reiterates a lot of what we already know about income inequality in the U.S. and fills in some gaps that some may not already know. (myself included)

I just came in here to rave about this show.  I heard everything from "Its a waste of time" to "How the fuck haven't you seen this?".  Then I went and watched it and its absolutely hilarious.  Its very female-centric but don't let that steer you away...because I can't stop watching it.









Also...lesbian sex scenes.

Spalding Gray biopic AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/e/ea/And_Everything_Is_Going_Fine.jpg/220px-And_Everything_Is_Going_Fine.jpg)

The master monologuist's life, chronologically told in his own words from performances and interviews. If you don't know who he is, watch SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA - http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=7b1_1344978267 (ftp://www.liveleak.com/view?i=7b1_1344978267). All of his major themes are here, although Demme shies away from his more graphically prescient thoughts on his own death (there is no mention of drowning here, although he mentioned it half the time he discussed suicide, which he did often). I was also kind of hoping they would have included more video footage of the Wooster Group, in which he acted alongside amateur Willem Dafoe and Gary Sinise, but there was only stills. No biggie, though. The whole thing is very interesting.

I saw this on the big screen when it played at SXSW when it came out. The animation was cool, for sure. As for the club itself, I lost my mind just a couple of times in that place. It was special.  Not like any other music venue I've ever been to. The stage and the area with any type of good view of the stage took up less than 20% of the space... Especially if you include the downstairs lounge. It was really a place to gather with friends and hang out with great music playing but not 100% the focus.

To be honest, my initial hesitation with this show was because of Weeds.  I didn't want to get into another show that might have that same fate.  But, for now at least, I'm glad I decided to give it a shot.

This consists of three short stories that will nearly kill you, especially if taken in the stoner mood. The scenes in these are nearly cult worthy!! The plot of the first story is absolutely epic and watching what happen to this dude from beginning to end is just devastatingly hilarious and topped with some very touching scenes like the reason he gets booted from his home. The second one is great too!! The dancing in the mirror..  :crazy:  It's all shot in the Scottish slums, subtitles are included, but they're speaking english, all in all it is just too much!! This is a must see B- classic.

It hilarious.... Highly suggested viewing.

I literally could/did not believe this doc at first. I just couldn't imagine anybody writing music so ahead of its time. It sounds a bit like BadBrains' BLACK DOTS album, but they were playing like this in '73, which is fucking nuts. Not even the Stooges, Ramones or NewYorkDolls were at this level. They may have been punk, but Death is already honing in on hardcore.
I've only gotten halfway through the movie and their story seems very 'wrapped up' already, so I have no idea how they're going to fill in the other 45 minutes.

Just discovering Trainspotting is downright hilarious! If you like it there's a little known movie you might dig.. I think it was called Pulp Fiction, or something like that.

Last season had major story arcs that directed the episodes which was less of a thing in previous seasons.
This season is broken up by the departure of major characters which, I fell is limiting the shows ability to simply exist in a state of ongoing funny because they want to tell poignant stories with these actors before they go.

The talent is still strong in the writer's room and on screen so I suspect it'll rebound. There is definitely some strong stuff still happening in this and the last season.

Same with me. I used to watch Office and Modern Family both frequently. It got too boring after a couple seasons and really wasnt funny anymore. Seems like the writers got a little too comfortable with the characters and the writing just became so bland and lame. Its like there was not much character developmen and a lot a characters scripts seemed recycled. The characters made the same types of jokes over and over

Question for you Netflix streaming folks.  Has anyone else run into problems streaming Netflix over the past few months where it's constantly re-buffering?  Granted, I'm on crappy Verizon DSL as that's the best thing available where I live, but I never had a problem over the past few years until recently.  It's happening on the Roku, the Blu-Ray player and the XBox.  I vaguely remember reading an article a few weeks ago about how Netflix speeds were declining or something like that, but I can't seem to find it.

I started having Netflix problems on Time Warner around mid December. Mostly affecting the Aaple TVs. Usually iPads, laptops and one Bluray player (but not the other) perform better. It's been really obnoxious.

Also, I decided to give House of Cards another shot.  The whole "look at the camera and talk to the viewer" thing still bugs me a bit but, since I knew it was coming this time, I got over it pretty quickly.  Anyhow, the show's pretty awesome.  I have a feeling I'll be all caught up within a week.

Beware of Mr. Baker

I saw the world premier of this at SXSW 2012. It is amazing! Here's my review from seeing it then:

Quote
The synopsis:

Quote
Ginger Baker is known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, but the world's greatest drummer didn’t hit his stride until 1972, when he arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. After leaving Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced self-destruction, and countless groundbreaking musical works, eventually settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker! With every smash of the drum is a man smashing his way through life.   


I was blown away by this film. The director bullshitted his way into Baker's life and lived with him in South Africa for months to get it made. He wasn't a filmmaker going in. He had no idea what he was doing. He came away with a brilliant film and great narrative. He used animation at times to bring certain themes home... None of it was overbearing or cheesy. It was really good.

The film is a fairly straightforward biography told chronologically. Lots of footage from all of Baker's musical projects and mostly based on interviews done in his living room while the director lived with him. Interviews with all the major players in his life including all 4 wives, his kids, his bandmates, etc.

The director, producers, and key crew people were there for questions and answers afterward. This was the world premier, so we were the first audience to see it. The director was clearly not used to the attention. He was nervous talking in front of the crowd. His mom was there as were clearly a few dozen of his friends.

The producer did mention that they still don't have a signed release from Baker to release the film.  Let's hope that happens soon. This film needs to be seen. 

I give it 4 stars.

Just saw that this one is available for streaming on Netflix now.

Terrible blue balls. WTF? How does a show get commissioned for 5 eps? Amateur hour.
Liked it though. Phone convo at the end had torsion.

Kind of in between The Killing (AMC) and Epitafios (HBO Latin America).
I won't go into Epitafios too much since it is HBO and this is a Netflix thread, but if this weren't a Netflix thread, I would highly recommend Epitafios even though subtitles are a necessity unless you speak conversational Spanish. At any rate, since this is a Netflix thread, I will quickly finish by saying Epitafios goes even further than The Fall in terms of arc, brutality, direction, torsion, and it has more than 5 eps. Even a second season. But this is a Netflix thread, so.....

Thanks for the rec, hope they renew, thanks again, Epitafios.

An Idiot Abroad

A Ricky Gervais travel show where he sends his buddy Karl, who is kinda dopey and not adventurous at all, on trips to exotic places around the world.
The first season he goes to the wonders of the world, the second season he goes on bucket list type type trips.

It is pretty hilarious.

New Bill Burr. Tons of great stuff. His bit on Donald Sterling (former owner of the LA Clippers) is classic Burr.

I watched this today. Bill Burr is awesome.

Now we just need a new Louis CK special.

Louis' writing is all headed to his show these days. Hence no new special in a while.

I'm on Louis' e-mail list and received an email today about having to cancel his MSG show, but it did contain this little line:

Quote from: Louis CK
Also I will be contacting you very soon about my new standup special which will be historically available only on my website louisck.net very soon.

A new Netflix original The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir
Quote
While Jerry Garcia became idolized and the face of the Grateful Dead, founding member and guitarist Bob Weir was along for every step of the band’s long, strange trip to icon status. Using rare archival concert and behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with fellow band members, relatives and Weir himself, this documentary chronicles Weir’s own wild ride from his initiation into psychedelic drugs to his last days with Garcia.

So, I trust everyone's seen Zombeavers by now  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard (seriously give it a try for the first 5 minutes)....anyway, so I just found out about a site called flicksurfer.com which lists everything available on Netflix streaming and is sortable by Netflix user rating, IMDb rating, Rotten Tomatoes or a combination of the three.  Much better than just browsing the Netflix site.

RISE UP  (2007)
(http://unitedreggae.com/userfiles/image/upload/riseup-poster.jpg)

Follows three aspirants vying for a break in the Jamaican music biz. One dude's name is Turbulence the Chaos (urban poor). There's also a farm-girl named Kimoy with an unbelievable voice (rural poor). The third is Ice Anastasia (uptown rich). It follows all three concurrently, as their stories/opportunities unravel. Well-made flick.


WAH DO DEM  (2009)

A millennial Brooklyn hipster [no, keep reading] wins a cruise for two to Jamaica, but his old lady (Norah Jones) dumps him and he winds up going on a soul-searching trip by himself. There was a bit too much set-up time spent on the cruise ship taking him south, imo; but once he hits the island, there's tons of great stuff. He gets some great glimpses into island life. Then the movie wraps up pretty hastily.

We've had a heat wave - 2 weeks over 95 degrees every day - so I've gone Jamaican with my movie viewing.

It's easy to forget how many kickass movies this dude has made.
This is a great doc, especially if you're already a fan. My favorite parts were when they showed the early TV forays his future trademarks, which got him fired (or barred from studio lots), i.e. overlapping dialogue.  Plus, the full length of Gene Shalit's review for POPEYE - ouch!

MILE... MILE & A HALF (trailer 1) (https://vimeo.com/36675195)

i'm just starting to plan my trip for this time next year, and happen to see this on the flix the other week. nice docu-style about hiking the John Muir Trail.

its a 212 mile hike from Yosemite NP to the peak of the tallest mountain in the continental US, Mt. Whitney. Elevation barely drops below 8000 ft, and goes above 11000 ft about 7 times iirc.

highly recommend this movie

It's not so much a Keef documentary, as it is a making-of for his new album. He calls it his "hats off" album - one track is his "hats off" to Gregory Isaacs, another is his "hats off" to Leadbelly, etc.
Having said that, I dug it. There's a little bit of history (nothing new in this retelling), but it's mostly him and Stanley Jordan putting the album together - which is pretty cool, imo. His acoustic finger-picking is nice to hear. I also like seeing KR's personality outside of the Stones. He says that the Stones can take too long to write, record, tour (in other words, be a working band) so he puts his solo albums together partly because he knows it will make Mick & the boys get their asses in gear.

Quote

My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I'm really relieved this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: "This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you." I almost instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven't visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I'd get bored in SC. I'm an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if this is cheesy or too sentimental but if your parents are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize.

I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the Parents episode of our show. What’s strange is doing that episode and working with my parents has increased the quality of my relationship to my parents IN MY REAL LIFE. In reality, I haven’t always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better. And if you have something like that with your family - I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life and I get terrified when my dad tells me about friends of his, people close to his age, that are having serious health issues, etc. Enjoy and love these people while you can.

Anyway, this show and my experiences with my parents while working on it have been very important in many ways and I thank for you the part you all have played in it.

My wife & I have been talking about the difference between 1st-generation immigrants (who often have gnarly hard-luck stories) and 2nd-generation immigrants, who often don't hear about their parents hardships. It started when her brother was talking shit on fb about Syrian refugees. My wife responded with something along the lines of "that's the same shit people used to say to Mom & Dad when they moved here." Her brother was like "Our parents were never vetted," which sent my wife through the roof. (In a nutshell, yes, they very much were.)
We got on this talk about how traumatic experiences often don't get communicated to one's children, who wind up having very little idea what their parents went through. (I've had a few Jewish friends tell me about how their grandparents never spoke about the Holocaust to their parents. It can be a blank patch of their history, as far as their kids are concerned.)

Then we watched the 2nd episode of MASTER OF NONE, where Aziz and his buddy are total lightweights compared to their parents. The parents put up with supershitty hardships, so hard they can't/don't tell Aziz & his friend about them. Then they're wind up feeling bummed when they see how soft their sons are. It fit in with our Syrian refugee / Mexican immigrant conversation.

Also, I've blown through Daredevil and Jessica Jones in the last couple weeks.  Is anyone else digging these Marvel/Netflix series?  Luke Cage is apparently up next, debuting in 2016, with Iron Fist TBA.  Eventually they'll get to a Defenders mini-series.  I really enjoyed the first two, and I'm pumped for more seasons.

I thought they were subtle enough with it in Daredevil. It's a MAJOR event in NYC and they live in NYC.
The tie-ins with Agents of SHIELD (which is a show I love) have been way more direct and, sometimes very well executed. You can see them building up to Civil War now.

DO I SOUND GAY?

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81l4EGjg4UL._SY445_.jpg)

Great idea for a documentary. Don't be fooled by the trailer, though - this is mainly about one dude's journey. One not-always-very-likeable dude. The interviews he scores are great: Tim Gunn, David Sedaris, Takei, Savage, et al. Unfortunately, they only come in every 10 - 15 minutes. When the medical professionals are breaking down speech patterns, or we're hearing from notable gay figures and their own struggles - it works. When we're stuck in the filmmaker's melancholia - not so much. But it is interesting to listen to his 'progress,' and his discussions with his bros about what exactly is gained and lost through that progress.

I totally agree, and love SHIELD also. Jessica Jones was amazing. I really liked it. Finally a comic book show for adults!! Dagny and I watched  the whole season over the Thanksgiving weekend.  The wife didn't really get into Daredevil, so I've been watching that one by myself in my free time away from her. I'll be watching the last episode of the season today. Looking forward to season 2, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders that will be coming down the pipes next.
I'm thinking that The Defenders is going to be insanely good. For those who don't know The Defenders are a street-level Avengers consisting of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist (at least those are the members of the TV version, in the books Dr. Strange usually features prominently in The Defenders).

Finally gave in to watching Making a Murderer last night.  I wasn't overly impressed after the first episode but kept going.  After 6 episodes, I made myself go to bed.  Shit got crazier and crazier with each episode.  You can't make this shit up.  I'll leave it at that since I don't want to give away anything.  I plan on finishing it tonight.

Be sure to do some fact checking once you've finished before drawing a final conclusion.  I've read that a lot of key pieces of evidence that were presented in court were left out of the documentary and the film makers' angle was certainly from Avery's side.  Just saying....

Timbuktu (2014) *Must watch with subtitles*
(http://www.reelworldtheology.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Timbuktu-Poster.jpg)


Quote
Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, proud cattle herder Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed aka Pino) lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima (Toulou Kiki), his daughter Toya (Layla Walet Mohamed), and Issan (Mehdi Ag Mohamed), their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu. But their destiny changes abruptly.

This was a great entree for me into his work. I'd listened to HEAVY WEATHER a couple times, but didn't quite get it. There was a 2-disc set from the library I got called PUNK JAZZ, and that was pretty cool.
But this really helped me see how to appreciate his music. How he could play in any feel ... ... oh, now I hear it. Plus, I've been in a bit of a Joni Mitchell thing for a couple months, so that helped.

Here’s The Wildly Inappropriate First Trailer For KLOWN FOREVER
by Scott Wampler  July 29, 2016  1 min read  original
Extremely NSFW. Consider yourselves warned.

By Scott Wampler Jul. 29, 2016

Mikkel Nørgaard's Klown (based on a Danish television show of the same name and starring comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen) wasn't just the funniest movie of 2010 - it's also one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, period. Like, tears-streaming-down-your-face funny.

So obviously I was thrilled when a sequel, Klown Forever, was announced. The film hit Fantastic Fest last year and was, by all accounts, just as filthy and hilarious as Nørgaard's original...but - as so often happens at Fantastic Fest - I managed to fumble every opportunity I was given to see the film.

According to this just-released (and wildly NSFW) first trailer, I made a huge mistake.

https://youtu.be/EdOEkzb1ikU (https://youtu.be/EdOEkzb1ikU)

Here's the official plot synopsis:

Klown Forever follows estranged best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as they travel to the States seeking fame, fortune and friendship, only to immediately dive head-first into an impressive array of wildly inappropriate misadventures and unforgettably mortifying social situations.

When Casper attempts to break into Hollywood, Frank follows him to Los Angeles, seeing an opportunity to salvage their strained relationship. As the guys come face-to-face with a number of LA’s denizens—including Isla Fisher, Adam Levine and “Game of Thrones’” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau—it’s clear that they’re equally ready and willing to take on Hollywood…but is Hollywood prepared for Casper and Frank?

A reunion with Klown director Mikkel Nørgaard, Klown Forever sees the series, best described as Curb Your Enthusiasm as directed by Lars von Trier, reach ingenious new heights––and stoop to gut-wrenchingly hilarious lows.

Ah, so Klown Forever brings Frank and Casper to the States? And adds Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Adam Levine and Isla Fisher to the mix? I'm 100% onboard with this, even as I continue kicking myself for missing it at Fantastic Fest last year. This cannot get here soon enough.

Speaking of which: Klown Forever arrives in select theaters and via VOD on September 2nd. Like its predecessor, it's being released by Drafthouse Films, so you can go ahead and expect a stacked DVD/Blu-ray release on the heels of that September 2nd arrival.

I didn't want to start a whole new thread for Amazon shows, so I figured I'd use this one if that's alright. 

Anyhow, Tig Notaro has an awesome new show on Amazon Prime.  It's called One Mississippi, and it's loosely based on her life story.  I just finished it last night and my only complaint is that it's only 6 episodes.  I definitely wanted more.  Hope it gets picked up!

The Netflix/Marvel partnership is now 3 for 3, IMO.  Luke Cage is amazing, if you're into that kind of thing.  The writing, acting, tone, soundtrack is all top notch. 

Also, for all you hip hop fans, there's a little Easter Egg.  Every episode is named after a Gang Starr song.

just been watching the British show Peaky Blinders, about a powerful gang in Birmingham post WWI.

good first season, great second season, and it looks like the third just showed up. with Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Sam Neill. The production value is through the roof, hard to believe it's a TV show.

(http://movieverse.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/peakyblinders.jpg)

Great show. Just blazed through the three seasons.

My wife started it. Said she couldn't finish it, but she can't stand Woody as an actor. I happen to love him so I'll give it a shot.  She gave it a thumbs down though.

Bored and looking for something new to watch....Anyone tried "The Killing"?

I saw the first two seasons, which I thought were great.  The story had a fantastic pace and the writing was excellent (really strong acting all around, too).  I guess they thought the show was getting cancelled so they wrapped up the story in season two.  When they got picked back up for a third, they kinda rebooted the show by starting a new case.  I got a few episodes into it, but I got busy with other stuff and fell out of it.  The few I saw were good.

My only "warning" -- if you can call it that -- is that it's a very dark show, and I mean that both literally and figuratively; not only are all the characters tormented and living rather depressing lives, but I honestly can't remember any scenes featuring sunshine (it's a very grey show...if it isn't raining, it's about to).  So if you're not too bothered by a show with an incredibly bleak tone, then I would very much recommend it. 

Thanks for the reminder!  I think I'm gonna jump back in and try to finish it.

super dark and a surprising quick but good story line.
super sad it got nixed, but Netflix picked it up for the 4th season that was only 6 episodes, AMC did the first 3 seasons.

enjoy!

The OA is insane.  It's their new sci-if/drama/thriller that they dropped out of nowhere with little promotion, other than a cryptic trailer.  I just finished episode five and I can't really say anything without spoiling, so I'll just say: watch it!

Title: Re: Netflix Recommendation Thread

Well, The OA was maybe awesome or maybe terrible...I just can't tell. 

Was she making this all up, or did this all really happen to her?  Did their (possibly nonsensical) "movements" stop the shooter or simply distract him for long enough to give the cafeteria worker time to tackle him?  Also, did I miss something, or did it feel very contrived -- the whole school shooting thing?  It kinda felt like they shoehorned it in at the last minute, giving no hints or reasons for its occurrence.  And if their "movements" do actually accomplish something, did they send OA to another dimension?  Did she die?  What was up with her house-arrest-ankle-bracelet?  I feel like I missed something there, too.

Many of those questions are nearly impossible to answer, I know.  It was intentionally ambiguous, which is fine with me.  (Though, I feel like the ankle bracelet one was something I actually did miss.)  Anyhow, I don't necessarily mind intentionally thin characters (and boy were they thin), designed only to tell a story that never really gets answered perfectly (what an understatement!), as long as the process of telling it makes you question big ideas and issues in a satisfying way that makes the story itself secondary (I can't really think of any TV series that I could use as good example, but Thomas Pynchon novels come to mind).  But I just can't tell if this show did that for me or not.  I suppose I have to sleep on it.

Binge watched the entire OA season one day last week. I  felt the exact same as you ^

The show lies somewhere between awesome and terrible - I can't decide either. The good was good, but the bad was really bad.

Title: Re: Netflix Recommendation Thread

I watched like 4 episodes of the OA and didn't think it wasnt that good so stopped watching it.

Crushed like two seasons of the Killing and thought that was pretty good and entertaining. More twists than I could imagine.

I know this is technically a Netflix thread, but for anyone who has Amazon Prime, I'd highly recommend The Man in the High Castle.  I'm about halfway through season two and it's great.  It's based on the book of the same name by Philip K. Dick (which I haven't read, so I can't comment on how the show holds up to it). 

It takes place in the '60s, in an alternate history where the axis powers won the war.  The eastern half of America is now the Greater Nazi Reich, and the western portion is now the Japanese Pacific States, with a small neutral zone running in between the two.  Most of the main protagonists are members of, or caught up within, a resistance movement who circulate news reels of an alternate reality in which the Allied Forces won.  The person responsible for these underground films is known as "The Man in the High Castle."

It's a well-written, fast-paced thriller with plenty of mysteries and a dash of sci-fi.  If you can, do yourself a favor and give it an episode or two.  You'll be hooked.

I think you made the right choice. 

At the time, I was considering whether it was some kind of really experimental "high art"...the kind of thing smart people would call "postmodern" and "edgy," and maybe it was just all going over my head.  But I'm pretty sure now that it's just a bad show.

New season of House of Cards started up if anyone is into that.
Starting to get a little too much like art imitating life lately.

I'm probably going to start that next, and I was thinking something similar.  President Underwood seems so boring and establishment compared to the real life version.

It's funny - I'm about half-way through a binge on the entire West Wing series. It's making me feel better... but it's totally fantasy. It's like watching politics porn at this point. It's just so far removed from our current reality.

I really don't think I had a grasp on the whole white house story as I watched this one. I definitely watched every season but I may have to revisit it and see what I can  take away now.

I did a full rewatch not long ago, and I think Dave nailed it when he called it politics porn -- especially if you're looking at things from the point of view of a moderate Democrat.  Imagine an America where both sides genuinely care about what's best for the country and, even when it stings, they are willing to work together and compromise for the greater good.

Ah man. I was into this show until they f'd it all up with nonsensical sci-fi in the last 2 episodes

Every show I seem to watch lately does this. The Leftovers....Bloodline....The OA..... even The Sopranoes, which isn't new, but was my first watch...  all of them totally fall apart in the last few episodes and resort to 'visions/dreams/alternative realities/psychosis' etc. etc.... it's a total cop out! You can't just answer looming questions w/ "oh.. it may or may not have been real in the first place' logic! Those bastards!

It's been a minute since I've watched a series that held me all the way through. Breaking Bad perhaps...

Sweet blog, bro!  I might put Netflix above HBO, but I agree for the most part.

One of my favorite things about Amazon Prime is that it includes all of HBO's catalog (with exception to currently airing seasons).  It's not a good substitute, because who wants to be half a year behind on GoT?,but it's a nice selling point when it comes to completed series (The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, et al).

I cancelled Hulu after the free trial.

The wife and I have binged this the past two weekends. We're watching the final episode tonight when she gets home from work. It's a really great series. A lot of metaphorical things happen and it makes me think about the series when I'm doing other things such as cutting the grass yesterday I began exploring all the metaphors in my head. I love it when shows make me do that!

James Booker was definitely a character. I don't remember if this was something I read elsewhere or from that movie, but there was a time when Jerry invited him to play a couple gigs, and they had a practice session, and James Booker treated him as if he was just some sideman that was working for HIM, and took the lead on everything, doing his own songs, and telling Jerry what to do do. James Booker...pure genius.

I don't think this is really a "spoiler" per se, by there is a hilarious Goonies reference with Sean Astin early in the season.  I won't ruin it, but I thought it was good enough to warrant a mention.

That "pirate's treasure" line cracked me up too.

We just finished up episode six and it's still a great show, but doesn't have me as riveted as the first season. There's an 'After-Show' this year also called Beyond Stranger Things. We haven't watched any of it yet though.

I'm pretty much in the same boat.  I'm hoping that they finish out the Hawkins storyline this time and come back for a third season with a brand new story, kinda like American Horror Story, Fargo and True Detective. 

As for an after-show, all of those "Talking" shows burned me out on that concept.  Maybe this one's good, but I tend to see those types of shows as nothing more than a hype machine for the newtork, and in the case of AMC an excuse to sell an extra hour of commercials.  It could be cool though.  I'm not entirely allergic to the idea of it, considering that I'll watch the occasional comic-con panel.  I think I'm just sick of Chris Hardwick's Hype Machine franchise.

Tremors and Gremlins 2 were both staples of my youth. And man has it been a while since I've seen either. Thanks for the heads up!

Also, I just watched Rare Exports last night with some friends, and it was a most enjoyable yuletide romp. Upper Finland is an unforgiving place.

On the topic of streaming and polar climes, I've recently heard of a documentary just released to Netflix called Under an Arctic Sky. Haven't seen it yet but I like the director's Instagram account. The film is about some people who travel to Iceland during a dreadful winter storm to do some surfing. I'm sure nothing goes wrong.
Title: Re: Netflix Recommendation Thread

I made my wife watch Gremlins 2 last night. I probably hadn't seen that film in at least 20 years. And never under, uh, certain conditions. It was fun (she agreed). The final half was about as bonkers I as remembered it being. Call me old-fashioned, but the practical gremlin puppets make all the difference.

Watched Banking on Bitcoin the other night. A really great explanation of an extremely complex topic in a totally accessible fashion. All the major bitcoin players are in it, including the Winklevii. If you want to be able to explain bitcoin to your grandma when the ole bag inevitably asks about it over the holidays, check it out.

I made my wife watch Gremlins 2 last night. I probably hadn't seen that film in at least 20 years. And never under, uh, certain conditions. It was fun (she agreed). The final half was about as bonkers I as remembered it being. Call me old-fashioned, but the practical gremlin puppets make all the difference. They offer just the right blend of real and fake, to great comedic effect. If this were a modern-day CGI exhibition it'd be lesser for it.

Dude, you’re doing mini write ups of Gremlins 2 while neglecting The Last Jedi thread you started

One brings me joy. The other, only pain.

I should also note here that Gremlins 2 is actually streaming on Amazon Prime, not Netflix. I blame cactusfan for the derailment.

All of the Marvel series are really good, with Jessica Jones and Luke Cage being my favorites. 

In the hour-long drama department, I’d suggest Mindhunter and Ozark.  House of Cards was really cool, but who knows what’s up with that now, given Kevin Spacey’s situation.  Orange is the New Black is pretty good too, but it’s starting to show signs of being around too long.  The first few years are great, though.

In the sci-fi area, I’d suggest checking out Stranger Things if you’re in the mood for 80s nostalgia, and definitely check out Travelers for a well done time travel drama. 

My two favorite comedies from them so far are Master of None and G.L.O.W.  Schitts’s Creek, even though it’s not a Netflix original, is hilarious and worth your time, too.

Agreed and although I could usually care less about the monarchy, there was so much crazy shit going on that I never knew about.
I was teasing my wife when she first started it and as I'd pass through whatever room she was watching it in, I'd notice the crazy affairs and partying so I got hooked.

YES!
As we watched last night I was surprised but not surprised that thread came about. Then I had to look at when it was released ands was surprised by the prescience.

Thanksgiving episode is a killer and several of the others have an artful edge to them a la some of Louis CK's best work without the ickiness that you got even before the allegations were widely known.

I'm about halfway through "American Vandal."

It's a satirical take on these latter-day true-crime dramas like "Serial" or "Making a Murderer." In "Vandal," a high school senior is accused of spray-painting giant red dicks on every car in the faculty parking lot, and two determined investigators from the school A/V club set out to explore mysteries and inconsistencies in the case. It's played totally straight and is quite funny. Plenty of dick jokes, stoner humor, social-media gags, awkward teenagery, and other things that my wife bailed on after the first episode.
