*****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: The Pharmacist (mini series)

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.

'Den of thieves' previous night.. Decent 2 hour spent. Not bad but not that great either.. Simple to watch and has a twist to the ending - Worth a watch!

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

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

6 Underground - The same shitty incoherent pile of garbage you associate with what Michael Bay capable of. The same juvenile dick jokes with inconsequential story beats that infuriatingly does not make any sense. FARK this movie!!!

Marriage Story - After The Irishman, there is no contest the second best movie put out by Netflix is this for 2019. It's not as bleak as Blue Valentine where the perfect couple slowly eroding to bitter animosity toward each other. It's more than that, it shows the trauma of actually going through a divorce that seldom depicted in movie. While a lot of crying and frustration going on, there's healthy of humour to keep you invested. It's not a misery porn drama but a great dramedy with a very likable cast. Superb acting performance and I can see why Adam Driver being a frontrunner for best actor nomination.

Just watched 2 early episode of the witcher. Not that good but not terrible either. Mind you i didn't visit it already knew the storyline because i haven't read the book nor played the game. The pace are abit "fast" for my liking, plus a few inconsistency like geralt was supposed to be a miserable loner because he was shunned all his life but then he can insta befriend the annoying joker from the tavern just fine. Like wtf? Passive aggresive friendly loner.

Another thing, maybe its really in the book but I wouldn't know, what with the full frontal nudity already in ep1? Giving the impression of games of thrones wannabe

Well nudity is like the book.

The Witcher - a very middling show.
It takes awhile to get going and the stakes pretty dull to be intriguing. My only reference was the PS4 game so not a die hard fan of the property. Muddled pacing without a proper hook to be more interesting to watch. Not the worst show on Netflix but also not particularly good.

While The Witcher improve alot by each episode, it's just ok overall. Still hopeful though as the game's writing is so damn good and people has been praising the novel as well.

Watched this 3-part documentary series - - absolutely gripping to the last moment.



Was looking for a good 'mystery/weird unsolved case' on Netflix... a day later this pops up tongue.gif

It is about the infamous "1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick killer". sweat.gif

The subject of the series is brutal and not for the faint of heart, though the cat killing/murder video is never shown in full.

The story of the cat killer can really be made into a movie because some of the things that occurred are just hard to believe. A wild goose chase around the world from two sides - netizens & the law.

Definitely one of the best Netflix produced content of the year.

i believe netflix recommends a 25mbps line for 4k contents. So if you are alone, 30mbps line should be ok.

Dracula
3 part mini series
a fresh retold of a classical tale based on Bram Stoker's Dracula with a modern twist

All of the classical characters made an appearance in this retold take, but with some change of roles from minor to major & vice versa from the original classic.

first arc was nice, 2nd arc is interesting, but final arc ending ruined everything, IMO that's the dumbest twist at the end

Would like to share. Using maxis fibre 30mbps can watch 4k with Dolby vision just fine. I'm only using WiFi to connect to the TV and then need a minute or 2 for the video to stream in 4k

Average bandwidth to stream 4k is around 15mbps+.

TV can play HDR / Dolby vision videos even in lower resolution like HD, 720p

i just binge watched it few days ago.

Production quality seemed very high for a Malaysian story. Great cinematography, not much of overused cringe worthy jokes (like typical local horror-comedy movies like to do)

Story wise is quite good, but it was outside my expectation of being a very scary story.

He's a Malaysian doing stand-up comedy in Australia and now migrated to US. He rose to fame by being a correspondent in The Daily Show with his angry brand of humour. He is on the verge of becoming somebody big. His joke on teaching his mom to use computer is amazing.

Lost in space is pretty okay but in order to create suspense, the writers and director put no logic in it for ppl with high IQ and drive a spaceship to unknown space.

Example: working on the sea and space without safety rope

No security plans to handle rogue ppl

Always something bad happen in each episode to the main cast

For me it's worth it for 4k even though most shows in HD only.

New tv shows , Netflix will most likely release in 4k and/or Dolby vision, best format for HDR.

Yes, as average consumer, most won't notice the difference watching full HD and 4K Dolby vision without putting the image side by side.

Deep down, watching 4K with Dolby Vision, I know I'm watching the best format available at home

Well, it's a rated 7+ show that's targeting young audience, can't expect too much
can't make to story too complicated or too "adult realistic" else the kids will lose interest laugh.gif

Uncut Gems

What a movie. Adam Sandler nailed his role. It was a thrilling ride from start to finish IMO. I was absolutely rooting for his character Howard. The last part of the movie
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

and that was THE most memorable part of the movie (and so it should be). That basketball sequence at the end was edge-of-your-seat experience. I'm not sure how others felt about this, but Adam Sandler should have been nominated for at least a Golden Globe. There were some genuine unexpected comedy moments like The Weeknd (lol at him asking for a blacklight at the club and getting into a fight) and the whole Kevin Garnett and his obsession with the stone biggrin.gif I just found that oddly funny.

I loved it. Easily a 4.5/5.

Ragnarok
One of the rare non-english series coming out from Europe, in this case Land of Vikings, Norway.
Based on Norse mythology (obviously), mortals, gods, "monsters", and the Jotunns conflicts in a remote sleepy town.
There are plenty of hints in the series, although the names aren't called out directly, you can see who's who from the myth, Thor, Loki, Odin, Jotuns & etc...
It's not bad, not the best either, but OK nevertheless
S1 ended in a cliff hanger, damn I hated that... but can't wait for S2 wink.gif

Unbelievable
Wow...this is a damn good miniseries. I know alot of people listed this as one of the best tv series of 2019, but it still managed to exceed my expectation.
Love the way it deals with the nitty gritty side of a rape case. It feels grounded and at the same time compelling.
All the cast are also amazing in this, especially Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever.
Watch it. It is a required viewing.

Most if not all are pretty high quality and very very informative

October Faction
This is another good example of albeit having a good source material (great comic), but the execution falls flat, face down in a pile of shits

Production value was pretty low for Netflix standard, some CGI was horribly done, and feels very cheap, story was everywhere, plot execution is pretty bad. Seriously, don't waste your time on this crappy series.

I only go look for the comic after finishing it, the comic is waaaaaay better than this crap

Miss Americana

Watch this the day it was released awhile back, here's my take on it;

Fan of Taylor Swift? This is an absolute must watch. Having been a follower/fan since her debut album, this documentary is a journey from her beginnings to her epic 2019 album.

You will see and hear what you probably never thought possible from her point of view (her political stand, reasoning for her 1 year absence from the spotlight, crazy fandom, the awards, her insecurities, parents support, and the origin of some of her recent songs). You will get to see how she felt away from the media after the whole Kanye fiasco. Though I've been a long time fan of hers, I don't keep tabs on her relationship stats but here, it was touched upon and was quite poignant to see how she dealt with the criticism (which culminates to her current status as private).

I think this has to be one of the best documentaries I've seen, and it never felt 'boring' or 'bland'. It's a constant revelation. At the end what I took away from this, is that for someone as huge of an artist like her, she seem to be the same person growing up albeit with a name that will forever be etched in the music industry.

9.5/10

This made me want to watch her Reputation Stadium Tour again with a different perspective.

Narcos Mexico S2 - Still the gripping drug cartel drama. Suppose if Netflix to greenlight next season, Amado is the new kingpin and then follows by Chapo.

Locke & Key - They got right about the concept but scale back on the gritty horror aspects. The books way more graphic and dark with the human dramas. This is the PG13 version of source material but enough of enticement of what makes those keys interesting in the first place. Good but not great.


Almost forgotten about this. Hope it's something to look forward to.

Miss Americana

Watch this the day it was released awhile back, here's my take on it;

Fan of Taylor Swift? This is an absolute must watch. Having been a follower/fan since her debut album, this documentary is a journey from her beginnings to her epic 2019 album.

You will see and hear what you probably never thought possible from her point of view (her political stand, reasoning for her 1 year absence from the spotlight, crazy fandom, the awards, her insecurities, parents support, and the origin of some of her recent songs). You will get to see how she felt away from the media after the whole Kanye fiasco. Though I've been a long time fan of hers, I don't keep tabs on her relationship stats but here, it was touched upon and was quite poignant to see how she dealt with the criticism (which culminates to her current status as private).

I think this has to be one of the best documentaries I've seen, and it never felt 'boring' or 'bland'. It's a constant revelation. At the end what I took away from this, is that for someone as huge of an artist like her, she seem to be the same person growing up albeit with a name that will forever be etched in the music industry.

9.5/10

This made me want to watch her Reputation Stadium Tour again with a different perspective.

This is another good example of albeit having a good source material (great comic), but the execution falls flat, face down in a pile of shits

Production value was pretty low for Netflix standard, some CGI was horribly done, and feels very cheap, story was everywhere, plot execution is pretty bad.  Seriously, don't waste your time on this crappy series.

I only go look for the comic after finishing it, the comic is waaaaaay better than this crap

Yes, already episode 8 this week.

Besides this, Romantic Dr Kim 2 ( episode 15 ), Tell Me What You Saw ( episode 8 ) and Hi Bye, Mama ( episode 2 ) also good Korean dramas for recently.

Due to the virus spread in Korea, the upcoming episodes for the dramas may postpone for some time.

China movies should not be affected because they already take the movies one or two years ago, some of them three years ago.

They do not release the movies just because less people are going to buy tickets to watch the movies.

Unlike China movies and dramas, Korean dramas and movies are taken one or two months before the films release.

Altered Carbon S2

Well, S1 was pretty awesome, loved Joel Kinnaman's version of Kovacs, and there are tonnes of gorey violence plus sex & nudities to goes with it too, special effects are top notch, some detective works there and almost the whole S1 keeping you on edge try to figure out who killed Bancroft

and come S2, which feels underwhelming compared to S1
it feels like it's made with much lesser budgets, and the gore & sex are toned down significantly, and I remember only seeing a pair of MILF tits for few seconds in the final episode tongue.gif
Anythony Mackie is a good actor, but his version of Kovacs is a bit underwhelming also, and his "enhanced super soldier" sleeve are kinda meh as well
Still a good watch, but it's unable to achieve the level of S1

I really enjoyed it. A little surprised by the reception of audiences lol. I loved the dynamics between the two leads, seeing 'an actor playing an actor within a film' is always refreshing what more one played by Leo. The whole washed up Rick Dalton character (which obviously takes a page from Steve McQueen) was really well done. Throw in Brad Pitt's character who is always charming, always 'I-know-I'm-better-than-you' charisma really drove the film IMO. I loved the bits at the ranch, quite nerve racking; considering this is a Quentin Tarantino film, anything can happen at any second and I was on the edge of my seat. tongue.gif

The ending (no spoilers) was really intense and it is Tarantino signing off with his usual 'shoot em' up' over-the-top violence which was a pleasant twist.

Alot of hype for Tiger King so I gave it a watch. 3 episodes in and good lord this is one of the most bizarre documentary ever watched.

I implore you guys to watch it. It's really not something you've seen covered before.
Without spoiling much, it's about the owner aka bunch of weirdos of endangered animals.

Straight to the point eh? Well, if you watch it as it is then sure.

For me, the number of allegories and metaphors to modern day 'government/politics' is amazing...

Hard to explain without spoilers but you can think of it as "Higher levels -> More greed -> The lower levels -> Less they get" akin to how the world today works; the rich becoming richer while the poor becoming poorer. I can go on and on, perhaps another time. tongue.gif
