    Welcome to Netflix Recommendations 2.0.

    Following in the tradition of the old thread, this thread is for recommending films and tv shows on Netflix. However, please keep in mind that this is not the only place on Boards to discuss Netflix and we encourage you to take in-depth discussion of Netflix content to the relevant thread or forum. The latest Netflix tv shows (as well as any issues/queries related to the Netflix service) can be discussed in Online TV, non-Netflix exclusive shows can be discussed in Television and its sub forums, and films can be discussed here in the Films forum. This is a general guideline rather than a strict rule, but be aware that mods may move or split posts into separate threads.

    Queries or discussion of regional workarounds is strictly forbidden.

    So... what's good on Netflix?

    I watched it a while ago but Nerve (teen cyber thriller with Emma Roberts and Dave Franco) is a lot better than it sounds. It looks great with a sort of neon, dystopian aesthetic.

    Posting in part to "tag" this thread since I popped into the previous one frequently.

    But to avoid an empty comment - I had a look at Hatfield and McCoys last night and it started well enough that I decided to switch to something else to keep it for my wife and i to watch together.

    Girlboss is a netflix original starting today that is being absolutely panned by the critics. So if "so bad it's good" is your thing it might be worth a look.

    If anyone watched the quiet sad and tragic documentary on modern porn Hot Girls Wanted.

    Netflix today released a follow up 6 part documentary series based on that today Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On

    I watched Tickling Giants the other night, I really recommend it, it's about the rise and fall of the "Egyptian Jon Stewart".

    I also watched The Most Hated Woman in America. It's based on a good story but the movie takes a bad angle on it. Worth watching, but it could have been better.

    Think Line of Duty is one of the best series I've seen in awhile. Enjoying Whitechapel at the moment, a bit different but in a good way

    Yeah I was blown away on how good it was, Lennie James was excellent as usual. I'm so glad I missed the first episode a few years back, I initial thought it was just going to be short mini series. So I just never bothered with it.

    I can now binge away;).

    For fans of The Master, Let There Be Light is up there now. Documentary focuses on a number of soldiers suffering from PTSD after returning from WWII.

    I thought it was an amazing story that deserved a far better movie.

    The Magnificent Seven (2106) & The Last Witch Hunter added today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,976 ✭✭✭ brevity


    The Magnificent Seven (2106)

    The 2060 one is still the best imo

    The Magnificent Seven (2106) & The Last Witch Hunter added today.

    Looking forward to the 2134 remake using the clones of the original cast.

    It was mentioned a few times in the old thread but I watched Eddie the Eagle tonight and it's delightful. Just a real feel good joyful film.

    Yes but Season 3 isnt there, and season 4 is on tv....trying to avoid seeing any of it!

    8 episodes into 13 Reasons Why. Really well made show. Very sad topic but I'd highly recommend


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,904 ✭✭✭✭ fin12


    Very Bad Men: True crime documentary series. 20 episodes.

    I was convinced that there was three seasons on Netflix:(

    Im now watching the fourth season on the bbc player, I dont think it will matter too much what order I watch them.

    I'll watch season three when it becomes available somewhere.

    How I Spent My Summer Vacation aka. Get The Gringo is a good action film if you like Mel Gibson in action films - he plays a robber stuck in a Mexican jail after a million dollar heist wenr bad and he's got to escape this rather dodgy prison by using all the Martin Riggs tricks he can remember.

    Watched Tramps last night - made for Netflix movie about two down on their luck kids who take on a package delivery job, with the usual complications. Nicely acted and an enjoyable 80 mins... plus the lead actress Grace van Patten is all kinds of gorgeous.

    Watched this myself this evening.

    I enjoyed it a lot. It's rather simple, plot wise, and I liked the fact that it was all very low stakes which made it seem actually quite believable and quite sweet.

    I did spend quite a bit of time wondering who Grace van Patten looks like and I came to the conclusion she looks like 3 or 4 different people all mashed together, in a nice way.

    Pretty decent documentary just added to netflix recently called Oklahoma City.

    Its about the Mc Veigh bombing. Plenty of the background of events like Waco which inspired him. Recommended.

    That's quoting iZombie as airing every Wednesday, which it most certainly isn't due to licensing issues in Ireland. Methinks the Indo pulled some data or updates from a UK source and have assumed it's the same with the Irish service, so I'd be a bit cautious about those promises!

    Has anyone seen The Young Offenders? Great craic. Highly recommend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 922 ✭✭✭ crustybla


    I'm way behind here but have any of you seen Better Call Saul? Is it worth watching?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,904 ✭✭✭✭ fin12



    Can't wait for the new season of F is for Family. The keepers crime documentary looks interesting.

    It's great. Have you watched Breaking Bad? Wonder would Better Call Saul be as good if you'd never seen BB
