I really enjoyed the Barkley Marathons, even though I don't have any particular interest in ultramarathons.
I watched it probably a year ago, but it looks like its still available.
The funny thing is the rating system is still there on Netflix's backend and it's still working perfectly fine. It's just Netflix removing it on all platforms they could.
I still use the star rating today. I use the Netflix app built-in my TV (this app is never updated), it works perfectly fine and it doesn't have the thumbs up/down, it still has the stars-ratings. New release still get the rating from Netflix and I can rate any title just fine. The new ratings I set using the TV app appear correctly on the Netflix's MoviesYouveSeen page
VPN, bud. I’ve used ExpressVPN and NordVPN to watch Canadian Netflix content in the US. The price is worth it if I can watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I find it funny that it’s an American show that isn’t available in America and I’m a Canadian living in the US that has to utilise a loophole to view content available in my home country.
The hieroglyphs in Egypt depict a triangular structure. Transition to a triangular structure on the screen of one of the battle space ships.
From Zorg’s office, the camera shows the round office window. Transition to the “evil sphere”.
Fight scene between Leeloo cuts across to Diva Plavalaguna, both have their arms spread out.
There’s a scene change where the number 10 carries over between scenes (the bomb shows 10:00).
The entire explanation of how the stones are not in the case, cross cutting back and forth between Zorg’s weapons trade with the questions, and the priest’s home with Leeloo and the answers.
The space plane takeoff to Fhloston Paradise similarly cuts back and forth between several locations, to tell a more complete/compelling story. For example, the pilot comments on the landing gears retracting, right as the stewardess’ legs go up due to Ruby Rhod’s exploits…
The list just goes on and on…
I just came across this interactive analysis, which touches on a variety of other artistic aspects as well.
I thought the original documentary missed it's own point. Lying to your kids about sex is much more damaging than access to the internet.
You might like Circle. It has a lot of characters but they dwindle quickly. It follows the theme of people finding themselves in a mysterious situation that they try to find their way out of.
There was a special edition DVD that was released a while back that had a chronologically correct version of the film. You had to go through a series of menu prompts that were set up to be similar to the tests Leonard was running on Sammy Jenkiss. I used to have it and fail to recall when it was released exactly because I lent my copy to a "friend" who ended up keeping it.
Here is a link on Amazon:
(edit with link to purchase the special edition)
"Money for Nothing" (available on Netflix) is a much more accurate and informative account than Hollywood's dramatized version of events. These events are recounted in "Money for Nothing" by the people who were directly involved with making these decisions:
Paul Volcker - Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979–1987)
Janet Yellen - Chair of the Federal Reserve (2014-Present), Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve (2010–2014), President, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (2004–2010)
Alice Rivlin - Vice Chair of the Federal Reserve (1996–1999)
Alan Blinder - Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1994–1996)
Peter Fisher - Undersecretary of the Treasury (2001–2003), Executive V.P. of the New York Fed (1994–2001)
Richard Fisher - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (2005–Present)
Thomas Hoenig - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (1991–2011)
Jeffrey Lacker - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (2004–Present)
Charles Plosser - President, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (2006–Present)
William Poole - Economist, President, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (1998–2008)
Laurence Meyer - Economist, Governor of the Federal Reserve Board (1996–2002)
Marvin Goodfriend - Senior V.P., Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond (1993–2005)
Along with many others...
The link doesn't work for you?
For some reason if you search by title it comes up as unavailable.
Edit: Try browsing in the "New Arrivals" section, you should see the thumbnail. http://i.imgur.com/I9v5psk.png
Edit2: I also just found that if you type "tw strings" in the search bar it will show up, but oddly enough searching for "two strings" or the full name of the film won't work.
Well this is weird since I just recommended it in another thread, but: The Machinist
It's a series instead of a film, but if you haven't seen it yet definitely check out Stranger Things
>"Like many companies, we took immediate action to assess the vulnerability and address it. We are not aware of any customer impact. It’s a good practice to change passwords from time to time, now would be a good time to think about doing so. "
Not a movie, but worth watching. It’s about the Unabomber.
Check out “Manhunt” on Netflix
The West Wing:
Season 1, ep 10: In Excelsis Deo
Season 2, ep 10: Noel
Both really really wonderful Christmas episodes!
If you want your mind truly blown, read the book. The movie doesn’t begin to detail what he went through... it’s so unbelievable that at the beginning of the book the author states that you won’t believe it’s a true story, and he had his doubts. But then he went to Norway and researched it all by interviewing all the people who kept this man alive. The snow cave experience is MUCH more complicated as is the sled trip(s).
Can’t recommend enough and although there are numerous books, I think this one is the best. I read it in a day/night.
Also a TV show, but Person of Interest is fantastic. It starts out as a procedural, but turns into an amazing look at the ramifications of AI surveillance in today's world, with apparently some very well researched "computer-y" scenes. Yes, that's a technical term...
The first four seasons are on Netflix now and the fifth and final season is starting next week on CBS. The creators knew it was ending as well, so it has a proper finish instead of getting cancelled on a cliffhanger.
Also available on Netflix is the season 8, episode 35 of The Forensic files on the account of the how they cracked the case on the Murray family's disappearance. Without a prayer
Lucha Underground features:
Even if you don't think you like wrestling, I recommend giving the first couple episodes a shot. It is silly, extremely awesome fun. And it is filmed much more like a one hour TV show than a traditional wrestling product.
The Amory Wars! I'd recommend just skipping Second Stage Turbine Blade and starting with In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. The SSTB story is kind of all over the place and Claudio was writing it alone, and that comic series suffers from that. IKS is a great jump up in quality, and a fine starting point for the rest of the series. It's a great companion piece to the album too. Follow that up with Good Apollo, which is even better - they just finished publishing that series a few months ago, and it's absolutely bonkers in the best possible way.
Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called Twenty Bucks, here are some Trailers
The Act of Killing
About the Indonesian killings of communists in the 60's, and the people who carried them out interviewed in present day.
Pretty creepy watching them re-enact there crimes.
The [OTHER] here is Japan, I am not sure if it is any other Netflix regions.
This movie was shot in one month, had a limited release 4 years later, and was reviewed by almost nobody.
While the available scores aren't good at all (Rotten Tomatoes 20%), this movie is unique, the perfect length, and certainly worth a watch if you're in the mood for a suspenseful film.
Alfred Hitchcock Presents has a Netflix page but no episodes. Hopefully they add it soon since they have been adding black and white to the catalog. I really want to see that series now.
not on the topic exactly, but https://www.justwatch.com/us is a great resource for searching streaming sites. You can select your accounts (netflix, amazon, hbonow, etc) and search for movies and filter those searches.
In what country? I'm in Norway and only see season 1 and 2. Even though I used Zenmate to try USA, England and Canada, I still couldn't find season 3.
EDIT: Not really sure why I'm being downvoted. I'm paying for my Netflix account, and would just like to know where to watch Peaky Blinders, as the Norwegian selection is atrocious.
Hands down: Dear Zachary. Don't read the description, just watch. I recommended this to someone and while I didn't ruin his marriage, it certainly didn't help it.
Broadchurch can get really sad as well, if you're looking for a television show.
The book is amazing.
You can do it browser-side with browser extensions like Hola.
You can do it device-side and router-side with VPN's like Private Internet Access.

Look no further than film noire classic The Third Man. An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins, arrives in a post war Vienna divided into sectors by the victorious allies, and where a shortage of supplies has led to a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime, who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime.
Antarctica: a Year On Ice A great documentary showing the beauty and deadly isolation of life in Antarctica.
No but I will now!
[Edit] Not on Netflix in the US but it is on Amazon Prime.
The nightclub scene with Jessica Rabbit is a tribute to Tex Avery's <em>Red Hot Riding Hood</em> (1943). Link is to video.
It was actually toned down from the original, which was only shown on TV in a cut version.
And yet the $100M works out to like only $3 per subscriber. This model really does seem to work.
(They have approx 30M streaming customers globally, according to http://finance.yahoo.com/news/numbers-netflix-subscribers-205626248--finance.html )
As a person from Illinois that isn't from Chicago, their Blue Jean Committee finale had me in stitches. They even made a real Catalina Breeze vinyl record.
Sausage School, Chicago Beef, Fred's character's wholesomeness.
Just pay for a VPN. They are like $40 a year. I use Private Internet Access based on recommendations from Reddit and TorrentFreak.
If you're paying, it's much less likely that a company is turning you into the product.
Doesn't hola work by letting users share their connection with others in different parts of the world? I wouldn't want others doing potentially nefarious things with my connection. It's kinda like being an end node for Tor.
Correct me if I'm wrong but Zenmate is another extension that does the job but doesn't share your connection with others. Only downside is it works in less countries. You can still get UK US and Germany though.
Not a TV show, but These Final Hours is a decent flick. The story isn't the best, but it does a good job of putting you in the moment and making you feel like the world is ending.
My wife teaches history at a high school. One time she had a student tell her Trollhunter was a documentary. This was not a joke. They firmly believed it was real and would not be convinced otherwise. It is now a running joke in my circle to refer to it as such.
<em>Philomena</em> is a terrific story about an unexpected cross-generational friendship. It starts Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, and was nominated for Best Picture in 2014. And hey, it's actually on Netflix!
I think I read somewhere that Tom Hulce taught himself to play the piano and learned all the Mozart pieces specifically to get this role, because they wanted someone who could actually play. Pretty serious dedication right there.
edit - found a link
From the article -
>When they were hired for the movie, the first task for both Mr. Hulce and Mr. Abraham was to steep themselves in the music of the period. Again Mr. Hulce had a headstart, for he had some background in music. He was able to read music, had played the violin as a child and had also sung in boys' choirs and with symphony orchestras in Michigan, where he grew up. But for his role as Mozart he had to learn to play the piano and spent four hours a day with a piano teacher for a full month before filming began. ''My fingers ached,'' Mr. Hulce recalled. ''After working at the piano all day, I wanted to go out and drink and listen to rock and roll. People wondered how Mozart could work all day and then go out and party all night. In a tiny way I felt I understood that from my experience.''
Not Netflix but Birdemic and Birdemic 2 are both on Prime right now. If you're looking for hilariously bad films they don't get much better than those.
If you're looking for a "unique and beautiful visual directing style", I can't think of any better answer than Samsara [US]
GANTZ:0 Teams of recently deceased people who've been revived and given high-tech weapons must cooperate to defeat an army of monsters in Tokyo and Osaka. This movie is nuts.
No link and I don't understand your description.
Here's the least descriptive content from IMDB
> A pair of young lovers flee their New England town, which causes a local search party to fan out to find them.
Heathers from the 80's. I think this movie really picks apart teen angst in a dark, hilarious way the Breakfast Club never could. It's on Netflix https://www.netflix.com/search/heathers?jbv=580335&jbp=0&jbr=0
Unforgiven (1992) is one of the greats. However, the Western library on Netflix is pathetic.
Edit: the 22 results for /us/netflix/movies/western
I can't recomend Automata enough. It has a really great "post cataclysmic/apocalyptic" setting, and a sort of "blade runner lite" theme to it.
Plus, Antonio Banderas.
It's an overlooked gem...
THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE
A troubled man suspects people around him are turning into evil creatures, and wonders if he should protect his only friend from an impending war or from himself.
Critics get early screeners and so reviews for it are out already; it has a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. I guess it might be early for OP to have watched it all, but the critical consensus is that it's very good.
Last Days in Vietnam [US] is an incredible, Oscar-nominated doc about the various bureaucratic hurdles and human factors that complicated the US evacuation from Saigon, and the extraordinary measures people took to save lives, even at the risk of their own careers and lives.
These episodes are fillers / recap, and can be skipped entirely (in fact, I recommend it), as they do not develop the story in any way, and the series continues as if they never happened.
And I'm pretty sure about 1/2 of all modern sci-fi plots can be traced back to ~~The Outer Limits~~ The Twilight Zone.
The most obvious choice is Undeclared. Also by Judd Appatow, even has some of same actors (Seth Rogan) and Freaks and Geeks. If you haven't heard of this one its a gift on a plate as far as a college successor to Freaks and Geeks. For me as as good, but still a solid sitcom with a little depth.
edit: unfortunately I just checked and its no longer on streaming. Next in line is The In Betweeners https://www.netflix.com/search/in%20betweeners?jbv=70157196&jbp=0&jbr=0
I use Private Internet Access. Speeds are pretty good for downloading and streaming, and it was $40 for a year subscription. You can enable/disable it at will using an icon in your toolbar.
I really enjoyed Asoka. It's a neat dramatized telling of the story of Ashoka the Great, an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty.
Solid characters, neat fight scenes, and a few catchy musical numbers (it is a Bollywood movie, after all).
Netflix picked up the international rights and released not one but two French serial killer thrillers in the past week internationally. I believe each one is available on most local Netflix editions. Each one is a self-contained story of six episodes, so it's not an enormous time investment. If they don't grab you by episode two, you can take a pass, but if they do, it's not a huge investment either way.
The other one is La Mante - The Mantis. It stars Carole Bouquet as a rare female serial killer. When a copycat emerges three decades after the original "Mantis" was imprisoned, she agrees to help the police on one condition: that her son, now a cop who has managed to hide his mother's identity all these years, be her point of contact. I thought both series were pretty good: although Glacé does a better job of not telegraphing its baddies, Bouquet (who was a Bond girl in the eighties) absolutely steals the show in The Mantis as the icy vigilante killer with unknown intentions who only thaws when she is in the presence of her long lost son.
I'd recommend Dangal, it is one of highest grossing foreign movies in China, almost as much as Avatar made there, and it is on Netflix.
German art-house flick.
Takes place in Berlin, just after WW2. If you dig slow, quiet, luscious but dark visuals, check it out.
"Unrecognizable to her husband after reconstructive surgery, a concentration camp survivor resolves to find out if he betrayed her to the Nazis."
No trying to be snarky, try The Last King. It's a movie, and it's foreign, but it features Kristofer Hivju of Game of Thrones fame as a man tasked with protecting the baby ruler of his region. I bring it up because it's historical fiction, and features some amazing cinematography along with awesome sequences where men on skis are attempting to shoot arrows at each other. It's a good time.
NO ONE HAS SUGGESTED RIVER?!
River is goddamn fantastic. Stellen Skaarsgaard has cemented himself as one of my favorite actors on the strength of this show alone.
Dinotasia. It's a 'documentary' made from old clips of 90's CGI dinosaurs and unintelligible transitions. Good for 4 year olds or people who are wicked high.
Space Buddies. 5 golden retriever puppies accidentally get sent to the moon, meeting a Soviet Dogmanaut along the way. Hijinks ensue. -8/10
Antichrist directed by Lars von Trier. It's more of a drama, maybe you could slide it in the supernatural category. I find the entire film to be pretty horrific.
Just to balance you out, give The Ranch a few episodes. lol Up there with the worst shows I've ever seen. If you can make it past 3 episodes let me know.
Yea I live in Peru with a US account. I have StrongVPN to use USA netflix and have my regular Peruvian Netflix. There a a lot of shows/movies available in Peru that are not available in the US. It's great to have all those options. I do wonder though, why doesn't US Netflix offer more Spanish subtitles/audio? My girlfriend speaks limited English and we can't watch a lot of US shows because of this. With all the Latinos living in the US I'm pretty surprised by this.
I don’t know if this is in the UK, but this is a Spanish language movie that will blow your mind. It’s a puzzle that constantly leaves you guessing. Mind blowing ending.
The Invisible Guest
An absolute must watch is, "Little Dieter Needs to Fly," by Werner Herzog.
Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie, here are some Trailers
This is always my go-to, but The Road. It'll make you despair for humanity and give an extra kick in the shin if there's any sort of father-son drama in your life.
Anything by Stephen Chow, I swear he's the Terry Gilliam of the east. You have to read subtitles though.
The first thing I watched by him was Journey to the West:
Re: Black Mirror, you might also dig Alfred Hitchcock Presents or The Twilight Zone. They're both wonderful and have aged well with each episode being a stand-alone short story in the same vein as Black Mirror. Black Mirror owes a lot to these two shows.
Lemonade Mouth, High School Musical, A Walk to Remember, Keith, Cyberbully, Mean Girls, Clueless, Can't Hardly Wait, and Ashby. There are also a million TV shows about high school. Just browse this link https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/60951.
An alternate reality type flick where people's compatibility quotient is measurable at a young age - and immutable.
Don't be put off by its low budget feel, it's a great love story unlike any you have ever seen :-)
For those new to foreign film, a couple of other "must see" foreign films available on Netflix...
City of God (2002) - Life in a Rio de Janeiro slum.
Y Tu Mamá También (2001) - An erotic road trip movie that is much more than an erotic road trip movie.
Watch Oats Studios: Volume 1 | Prime Video - Amazon.com A collection of experimental content from the mind of director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie). This is exactly what you're asking for.
They are the ones I use. You can always head over to /r/VPN for more suggestions. Although reddit seems to have a boner for Private Internet Access (PIA) but I'd avoid them because they just seem too good to be true and they're based in the USA. But that's just my opinion, so if you believe they have a good deal and trust them, then go ahead. Just beware that there is a reddit bias towards PIA and if you speak out against them you get downvoted. Just my 2 cents.
I don't use chromecast cause I just have a laptop hooked up to my tv, but
> Bonus tip: If you have a Chromecast, you can use Zenmate to watch a program on your computer, then use the “Cast Tab” feature in Chrome to send it to your TV. Now you can have BBC on your TV too, just like Austin Powers.
from a zenmate review.
My only issue with Zenmate (and Hola for that matter) is that I can't stream them through Chromecast for whatever reason. It only seems to work through my laptop.
Has anyone else had this problem or discovered a solution?
I don't think anyone has mentioned these two:
American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson — which is obviously a dramatized show about the OJ Simpson/Brown & Goldman murder trial. Starring Cuba Gooding Jr. & John Travolta. Excellent 10-episode series.
American Crime — so far this is a 3 season anthology series. All 3 seasons are completely separate but are all worth a watch!
I highly recommend both, but especially ACS: People v. OJ Simpson — some of the best TV in recent years in my eyes. Won an Emmy & Golden Globe for best series (and best cast?).
Episode 3 of Amazing Hotels: Life beyond the Lobby is about Giraffe Manor.
You might enjoy some of that?
Fun fact : Edward James Olmos was threatened by the Mexican Mafia for their too-accurate portrayal in the movie. Good flick, definitely worth a watch.
Best quote : DON'T LOOK AT ME LITTLE PUPPET!!!
Serious movies: Airlift, Rustom.
Action: Holiday, Happy New Year.
Looking at the entire category https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/10463 most of them are not from the "corny" category (which I like)
You are in luck -- there are so many good ones!
I especially like the Martin Clunes documentaries, like this one on working horses called Heavy Horsepower.
The Road should certainly do the trick. Not only is it a personal father-son story, but the Earth itself is dying and a lot of humanity is reduced to its most savage.
I suggest watching Inside Job which explains that the government was warned about what was happening with Subprime Mortgages and did nothing to regulate them. Nothing happened to the ratings agencies who gave them AAA ratings. Also before Treasury, Hank Paulson was Goldman Sachs' CEO. That guy is as much as a crook as anyone else.
Ah, I don't know of any others like this. But as somebody else in here linked, check out /r/SlowTV for fan made films like this. Also most (all?) of the official Slow TV episodes can be found on their site.
Edit: if you want a gem on Netflix that is nearly the exact opposite of this, definitely check out Samsara.
According to Alexa 45% of Reddit visitors are located in the US.
With the majority of users in the US the majority of untagged submissions will be for the US and the majority of people viewing them will also be in the US.
Out of something like 45m subscribers, 33m of those are in the US, so Netflix itself skews more heavily than Reddit.
American-dominated website, based in America, discussing American-dominated subscription service that's also based in America.
The main writer for this movie, David J. Stieve, is featured in a short documentary on struggling screenwriters. It also covers some making-of preproduction stuff and kiiiiind of paints the producer (also co-writer) as a credit hog.
Anyway, pretty good watch, check it out: http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/dreams_on_spec
It's not all rainbows and sunshine, but hands down, hands down, the ONE movie I can always show to ANY group of people and they all enjoy it and smile - Varsity Blues.
Kolchak: The Night Stalker is a good supernatural thriller.
Columbo is great to watch the duel of wits.
If you have Amazon Prime or some other means of watching it, check out "Man with a Movie Camera".
EDIT: It's free on Youtube.
What do you mean by "classic"? Like older Gone with the Wind era movies? If yes then Mughal-e-Azam from the 60s and Amrapali from 1966 are the oldest Indian movies I can find on Netflix
Really? I'm astonished I have to explain this.
Both are about schools ruled by a small, self-appointed clique of the most popular girls, who abuse those underneath them. They are taken down from within by their latest member, who has to struggle to avoid becoming what she despises.
Fuck it. Here's a quote about Mean Girls:
> Oh, right. Somebody made this movie already. It was called Heathers.
That's from Tina Fey. I think she should know.
I had to look up the clip, because all I was doing was reading those lines with Norm Macdonald's inflections. Relevant section at 1:40.
There's not that many tearjerker movies on Netflix instant but
Million Dollar Baby - pretty fuckin sad mate
Fruitvale Station - also pretty fuckin sad
Was also going to reccomend Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Remember Me but you've already seen those.
Also The Notebook is a tearjerker movie, but it's not on Netflix and you've probably already seen it.
Check out “You Laugh But It's True” on Netflix
I don't normally watch documentaries and watched this thinking it was stand up but it was more about Trevor Noah growing up in South Africa and challenging the local comic community. It was really interesting and heart warming
Not sure about subs, but check out https://www.justwatch.com and it will let you filter by streaming providers, RT/IMDB ratings, genre etc. and has an amazing interface.
It comes in clutch when trying to decide what to watch based on my mood!
The minimum bar for "getting a netflix show" isn't necessarily terribly high. Some of the stuff they produce is pretty low budget.
They made a Richie Rich series which totally flopped last year, after all...
Laura is a 1944 film which seems to have influenced Twin Peaks a lot. It also beings with a dead girl named Laura and a similar young detective talking to the men in her life. I have watched this movie a few times, I think it's becoming one of my favorites.
Bonus: features a very young and blonde Vincent Price.
Particle Fever is a documentary about the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC. It follows a small number of physicists who contribute to the work. Everyone involved is very excited to be a part of this major discovery.
This true-crime documentary follows a cyberspace love triangle that ended up sending one member to prison and another to the grave.
One of those sobering "be careful on the internet" tales, but very well done. And creepy.
British. He's a math professor at Oxford.
Edit: Oh, never mind. Apparently there are two TV mini-series on Netflix named "The Code." I just finished the Marcus du Sautoy one today, so I thought you meant that one. I thought you were suggesting it because of math's relationship to computer science (that same professor also did a documentary on algorithms). But you mean this one instead.
