Netflix Recommendations Thread 3.0

Another 10,000 posts down, so another new thread is demanded!

It does what it says on the tin: a place for you to recommend Netflix films and shows.

While chat is allowed and encouraged, not all discussions suit this thread! Often it's better to head over to the TV forum for in-depth chat about individual shows, or start a new thread in this very film forum if you think there's more to discuss about any given movie.

This is for Netflix recommendations only - if you'd like to recommend films from other streaming services, this thread will sort you out.

For the record, here's thread 2.0.

Just finished Yellowstone and wondering what to watch next.

From previous thread, think I'll give Top Boy and Unbelievable a run out.

Really impressed with it. Everytime I expected something to go down the route of predictability it went another way.

Merritt Wever was brilliant, didn't cop she was the doctor from The Walking Dead until near the end. She absolutely immersed herself in the role. It really felt like I was watching a detective trained to the hilt in how she dealt with victims.

The Blackcoat's Daughter (AKA February) - 6.5/10

An intriguing trailer for a new film 'Gretel & Hansel' was released recently so I thought I'd check out one of Director Oz Perkins previous films. The Blackcoat's Daughter was his debut feature and it shows that he is one to keep an eye on.

The film serves as an antidote to the modern, ‘cattle prod’ horror films that seem to think that jump scares are the only way to engage an audience. This is a very quiet film where the plot slowly unfolds as the story as progresses. I found the first 40 minutes or so a little too slow for my liking and wondered if this film was worth sticking with. I'm glad I did. The second half has some very tense scenes with superb acting, clever misdirection and an even smarter twist.

This is one of those films that stays with you and gives you plenty to think about. It’s great to finally get genuinely creepy films that resonate with, and challenge audiences. Oz Perkin’s is a name that deserves to be among the Ari Aster’s, Jordan Peele’s and Robert Eggers’ of modern horror cinema.

Watched part one of the Bill Gates documentary and it didn't disappoint. The main focus of part one was on the Gates foundation and the work it is doing. Some interesting interviews with Bill Gates his wife and his family.

I wanted to like Disenchantment, but the first half of season 1 stalled more often than it soared. Like a lot of Netflix comedies, the running length was a big problem, episodes dawdling towards 30 minutes when they had no need to.

Still, I liked enough of the characters - except Elfo, who is the worst - to go back, and hopefully those growing pains were just that.

If anyone else loved the interview scenes from Line of Duty, try Criminal UK. One episode in and I really enjoyed it.

Since it's a new thread, thanks to all those who recommended Mindhunter.
Another American series on serial killers wouldn't have been top of my viewing list but this was good.
Of the actors you'd have to say that chain smoking Bill Tench,played by Holt McCanally was the star, and he has strong Irish roots as well.

Watch your language!

Was curious what her name was and as expected it's Clare-Hope Ash!tey.

Is there any kind of order for watch Criminal or all standalone? Can spoiler any spoilery answers I suppose

And as it is a new thread, thanks again to peteeeed for the regular updates
