*****Hi pls end your review with a 'RECOMMENDED' or 'NOT RECOMMENDED' verdict.. TQ

Too spoilt with choices on Netflix so create a thread to sift out some personal favorites to share with forummers.

As per title, share what you watching ( or watched) that you would recommend... Can be multiple titles or whatever that just pops on to your head.
IT MUST BE AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX MALAYSIA (originals or not does not matter)



Currently watching : N/A

Latest Watch: Animal World - Chinese mainland movie based on manga Kaiji and movie Kaiji The ultimate gambler (worth a watch - u might like it , u might not)

Recommended by other fellow forummers (posted in thread)

Currently watching Glitch. It's an australian series about people coming back alive like Resurrection few years back. It's much better than Resurrection and only 6 eps per season so great for binge watch.

New season (3) is coming this Wednesday.

I use NordVPN... only a few VPNs can bypass the netflix country filter... and NordVPN is one of them... I got it for like rm400 for the 2-year plan... But can put on 5 devices, so i'm sharing with my friends..

They have other titles on every country, sometimes i switch to singapore or the US... cant recommend any title cuz for me, i watch netflix just to pass time only, dont have a favorite... but if u ask me, I like documentary shows and big bang theory which already available in Malaysia lol... I'm not a movie geek, so cant really tell..

this topic is for share any titles that come to mind that is worth a watch.... so any will do biggrin.gif

bcoz netflix too many to watch d...... some suggestions or recommendations will definitely help ppl like me, whereby im always wondering if this or that is worth the time or not.......

their search function algorithm isnt exactly "smart".... and then there is no review feature..... which makes it even harder to separate good or bad. lol. wasting a lot time to go check out review on google. unless of course already recommended somewhere or by some1...



the nord vpn are u still looking for ppl to share? how does it work actually the vpn? and how exactly do u switch?

Dark
A rare sci-fi mind blowing gem from Germany, some will call it a darker, slow burn German version of Stranger Things
First few episodes is a bit slow, you can't really understand on what's going on, I almost drop it after watching the first episode few months back, but once you get past the first few episodes and into the major mind blowing revelation, you can't stop already.

Between Two Ferns The Movie is so good. This might be the best comedy movie Netflix has ever put out.

Best experienced if you familiarize with Between Two Ferns skit first, it's on youtube.

Can't wait to watch "Between Two Ferns" (out already) and "El Camino"

Currently watching from the beginning, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" biggrin.gif (watched it as a kid).

A lot to recommend, "Mindhunter", "The Bodyguard", "Breaking Bad" comes to mind... I think Netflix's algorithm for recommendation is quite good. So far the recommendations to me has been really decent.

I think going to Netflix US is a bit overkill to me, Netflix Malaysia already have too many things to watch (and so many I stopped watching mid-way saying I'll continue watching later lol).

Last good Netflix film I watched was "I Am Mother" (8/10 to me) and "Murder Mystery" (7/10), "Triple Frontier" also decent.

The overhyped film "Bird Box" was absolute bird poop. Not worth watching. For horror "The Ritual" comes to mind as one of my absolute favorites - stellar cast, creepy woods and a decent ending.

Really digging Olivia Colman taking over Claire Foy. Guess it's Margaret Thatcher turn now to tango with the Queen.

Peaky Blinders is worth looking into although not an original netflix show. The first three seasons almost perfect TV for me. In my eyes there are up there with The Wire or Sopranos.

It's been a while since I've been enamored by a fantasy series, but wow Dark Crystal Age Of Resistance is amazing --- and I'm only halfway through.
If you want to experience something akin to Lord of The Rings but with puppet, give it a try.

In The Tall Grass just got added yesterday. It's pretty good, but not as good as other Stephen King's adaptation on Netflix ---- 1922 and Gerald's Game is way better.

El Camino - The proper send off of Jesse.
This one solely for those who wanted a more definitive closure for Jesse Pinkman. Picking up right after Jesse escapes the meth facility. Gilligan did his usual passive Chekhov's guns set-up that kept you guessing the payoff. It's the last hurrah that won't rival the best Breaking Bad episode but a bittersweet finale that close the final chapter. A great send off or a very well written epilogue. The flashbacks tug your heartstrings with cameos of the who's who of Breaking Bad.

yup, finally they put a full stop on the ending of Breaking Bad finale after 6 long years

it's nice to see the returning characters, oh my, Todd has put on lots of weight laugh.gif
Too bad didn't see even a glimpse of Saul, only got a mention, the lawyer laugh.gif

and Bryan Cranston is excellent, feels like he's just walk out from the set of BB 6 years ago rclxms.gif
while the rest of the characters you can notice some differences in term of their acting compared to BB

and... also finally they put the nail in the coffin where there are a lot debates over a popular plot

Ehh...Fractured is thoroughly mediocre. The movie hit you in the face with clues like a brick, that twist ending felt real predictable instead of revelatory.

Finished a documentary last weekend, The Keepers and my god it made me physically ill. What a fcuked up story.

Another movie night:

Rattlesnake --- I wish there's more to this movie. The concept is interesting (a single mom has to kill someone to fulfill a contract), but that's it. Too simple of a movie. 4/10

Dolemite is My Name --- Such a great and good feeling movie. Great acting and very inspiring story. It's been a while since we've last seen Eddie Murphy, and this movie mark a triumphant return for sure. I wonder if Oscar will see this movie, because it deserve a nomination at least for best acting. 10/10

Have you all watched Kominsky Method? Great acting from Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. I'd Recommend it

Been binged watching mindhunter. I loved how it stayed true to the 70s, bill smoked everywhere. In office, in airports, hell even in flights too lol

I can't stand holden though, he was supposed to be a genius but really gave the impression of arrogant, self absorbed, holier than thou attitude.

Watched El Camino recently...

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad, this is the closure / epilogue you wouldn't want to miss.

Heck it even feels like a TV episode but with a more cinematic approach.

Love the cameos ESPECIALLY, you-know-who (I almost lost it when I saw that). rclxm9.gif

Thrilling, exhilarating, on-the-edge-of-your-seat stuff Breaking Bad is known for with some stellar acting performances.

Highly recommended.

Truly a gift for Breaking Bad fans.

The King - Another take on King Henry V, the reluctant King who also known as the great warrior king that successfully wage a war campaign against France. While I enjoyed the majority of actors in it, competently shot but it's just another historical biopic that doesn't rise against the norm. Joel Edgerton and Robert Pattison gave good and funny performance to contrast an otherwise somber movie.

Dolemite is my name - This movie oozes blood and tears from the comedy element. It's a passion project by Eddie Murphy that tells the story of Rudy Ray Moore, a down on his luck entertainer who find fame and glory in an unexpected outlet. A well rounded cast of who's who black comedians that makes this heartfelt and feel good movie of the year. Wesley Snipes is all golden as the detestable actor. Highly recommended.

Think the King is a prelude to Villeneuve's Dune. You can gauge what Timothee Chalamet can bring to table as the conqueror Paul Atreides.

Yeah...heard great things abt Dune. It's one of my most anticipated films of next year along with Nolan's Tenet. If it's true as you said...then I gotta catch The King at any cost. Perhaps latest by this weekend for sure.

Don't put too much expectation into The King based on the big names mentioned in the trailer, some of them are just cameo at best

IMO it's just a mediocre medieval movie, the plot & pacing isn't much to shout about, but I love the attention to the details on the armored knights, and I like the final battle too, was expecting a grander scale, guess they run out of budget? or shorthanded? but the long shot is impressive nonetheless.

No one watching the Korean series, Chief of Staff?

Damm, i'm hooked to it. I'm not sure if it's due to the heartfelt monologue or the farking dapper korean suits/shirts or the unpredictable storyline, but every episode feels like a good movie to me. Totally impressed, but somehow doesnt seem to be popular.

Watched Terminator 3 Rise of the Machines on Netflix - - not bad but not sure can recommended if you haven't seen T1/T2.

The last I watched many years ago I didn't really like it but after a recent marathon of T1, T2 and then T3, not bad at all... fits the plot line really well.

T4 Salvation - - maybe it's just me, but I kinda like the whole warfare with the machines. Plot wise it may stink but the CG holds up well and the action sequences are decent. Going from T3 -> T4 is quite a difference in stylization.

Will watch T5 Genisys - - can't remember much of this film maybe because it was that forgettable, will watch it later.

Yup.. paid VPN.. a bit expensive than Nord but i''m sure Nord should be capable to beat the geo lock.
Power on your Nord.. set to US server if you wanna get US Netflix contents. Once you connected to US server then open your Netflix app like usual. Now you should have US contents. If you not sure try type Supernatural (just example) for searching.. If you can get that movies mean you're on US Netflix since MY Netflix dont have that series anymore.

Most welcome.

One more thing. If you download any movies from netflix US then you need to turn on your Nordvpn first in order to watch it. Once uou in netflix US then you can turn off your Nord. If you straight away open netflix app without turn on your Nord you will be going into MY netflix and all your downloaded movies from US netflix cannot be played.

Btw...since you already have Nord.. go subscribe disney+ also lar... lol

I thought... "Hmm... another Christmas film."

I heard it was about the origins of Santa. Riiiight... like it hasn't been done before (maybe lol).

Surprise. Surprise.

This was AN ABSOLUTE GEM.

At first I was like sure... the character Jesper being thrown into such a location Smeerensburg and that's when things got interesting laugh.gif

What has been happening in this town is almost a metaphor / symbolism of what is happening in the world today.

Long story short, to put it simply, the 'stories' about Santa - - from mailing your letters, the good/naughty list, the use of reindeers, Santa's sleigh flying through the night sky, Santa's ability to go down the chimney, coal in the socks if you're bad, the toys and how/why they're made - - ALL of this was shown in its origin. biggrin.gif Unexpectedly well done too, not thrown in your face. You have to pick it up yourself which makes it all more special . You'll be going "Ohhh.... so that's how the story got around about <so> and <so>.."

Good effective use of music too, with some contemporary tracks thrown in. The song "Invisible" by Zara Larsson was quite good.

The ending was really satisfying, emotional and endearing. Santa himself is presented as this lumbering beast (see the film to see his backstory).

Really well done with amazing voice acting and not sure if this was 2D or 3D but the animation was on par with Disney tongue.gif

Props to the writers to come up with such a brilliant story.

Highly recommended for the whole family.

One of the best Christmas films I have seen.

Just watched The Irishman. Holy batman, 3 hours and a half of pure awesomeness. Since i liked the godfather then maybe I'm abit biased because this got all the vibe of the godfather too, hell they even played the iconic godfather theme song early on in the restaurant scene giving me a goosebump lol

The movie is full of suble jokes too here and there.

Frank: I'm sorry but i gotta direct youse to my attorney mr ragano if youse wanna talk about mr hoffa or any matter for that matter. I got nothing new to say.
The fbi guy: he's dead.
Frank: who's dead?
The fbi guy: your attorney, mr ragano.
Frank: he's dead? Who did it?
The fbi guy: ..... cancer.

I laughed so hard biggrin.gif

Anyone liked crime, mafia themed slow burning movie then this is to be watched. 10/10
