Bump when you find something good to stream from Netflix or Amazon or whatever

Post by SeeRockCity on 2014-04-27, 23:10

Last Gladiators - Director Alex Gibney takes a penetrating look at the National Hockey League's most feared enforcers and explores the career of Chris "Knuckles" Nilan.

Last Gladiators Page at Netflix

Worth a watch.

Mr. Nobody with Jared Leto and Diane Kruger. At 155 minutes, it's a long movie, but well worth your time.

Mr. Nobody at Netflix

If you never had Showtime or have never seen Dexter (like me), then there's Dexter.  Until earlier this year, only seasons 1-5 were streaming on Netflix and you had to get the DVDs for the later seasons. Thanks to a new agreement between Showtime and Netflix, you can stream them all.

If you haven't seen Luther. you are really missing out. Idris Elba just kicks ass in the role of John Luther.

Boy was a good quirky comedy. Had some very funny parts and was overall a really enjoyable film.

Not sure if it's still on Netflix or not. But if you're looking for a good comedy, "A good old fashioned orgy" was awesome. Surprisingly, not a whole lot of nudity. But it was really enjoyable, and a hell of a lot funnier than I expected.

I mostly watch TV shows on Netflix. Most of my instant queue would be old-hat to anyone who is at all familiar with the popular TV shows of the last decade. Singling out a few which may not be overly-familiar, I will name:

The Inbetweeners
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret

If you like British comedies, Hulu has a show called In The Thick Of It. It's about the inner workings of the modern UK government. Very realistic, and something you would never see produced here in the US as it paints it in the negative light it deserves

The Inbetweeners is awesome - did you get to see the special where they went to Spain on vacation? One of the funniest things ever.

I've only just gotten into The Inbetweeners. Netflix has told me that season 3 has just come available, though I've yet to watch it. Seasons 1 and 2 were great.

I second this one. Just brilliant, scathing comedy. Created by Armando Iannucci who also does Veep. Also hilarious and streaming on Netflix is Iannucci's In The Loop which is one of the funniest movies I've seen in the last 5 years. Both The Thick Of It and In The Loop star Peter Capaldi who is the new Doctor Who. His character, Malcolm Tucker, in both the series and the film is one my favorite characters in film/TV.

Not Netflix but on HBO GO they have this movie called "Trance" ...8/10 ... reminded me of "Memento"

No, Netflix would never do that... it might fold that house of cards business model of theirs.  Suspect

We are what we are.
Banshee Chapter
The Den

All three are decent, last two are fun low-budget horror.


Just sayin'

Arrow. The acting is bad, the dialogue is terrible, there's nobody famous in it, it's based on a comic and totally unrealistic. So in other words, I can't stop watching it.

Yeah, CW network, I think. That probably explains why it has been running for three years and I never heard of it.

Is this actually any good? Most of the reviews I've read from trusted sources have been pretty scathing. Apparently the script and acting were intentionally dumbed down so it could more easily translate across languages and cultures - specifically Asia, where Netflix is trying to break in. I saw comparisons to those 90s syndicated shows like Hercules.

I thought it was good and entertaining...but I didn't really have any expectations going in about it needing to be 100% culturally or historically accurate.

It has a pretty good rating on imdb.

It actually won Best Picture of the year from some Boston critics group a few weeks ago. Not sure why it was such a turd at the box office, though the dud of a name probably didn't help.

Cool, I'll give it a try. Netflix has had a pretty good success rate with their produced shows thus far. I even watched a few episodes of Lillyhammer, which was quirky but pretty good.

On another note, I had never watched Californication while it was on the air and after Netflix recommended it for me enough I finally gave in. Holy crap is that show crazy! And the teets are a great bonus.
