I've had pretty good experiences with NordVPN so far. They have a constantly updated list of servers that work with US-Netflix, it's a little annoying having to pick a specific server every time but it always works.
Why are there so many good movies on Netflix but I only ever get suggested the same things? Thanks for the list.
Edit: For anyone curious, the lessons I've learned from these replies: use Hola Unblocker for PC or Unblock-Us for other devices or if you have a DVD subscription, watch Mean Girls, rate movies and genres, but don't rate things you haven't seen, mark movies as uninterested, use multiple profiles for different people, there may be some sort of scheme on Netflix's end not to promote bigger movies since they have to pay more, Netflix should change its UI to remove duplication and Netflix's categories are fairly weird and arbitrary. Thanks everyone!
>but the fact that only 16% of the critics thought it was a passable film is...terrible.
>"The prospect of a predominantly white, European realm being invaded by foreign, primitive, darker skinned hordes (they are actually called the Horde) might set alarm bells ringing in our current climate of immigration anxiety. Is this a veiled Ukip broadcast? Or a pro-Trump one? Nobody suggests the orcs are there to steal Azeroth’s jobs or exploit its benefits system, thankfully, though they are intent on overrunning their adoptive country and sucking the souls out of all its living creatures."
Speaks for itself on the qualifications of "professional" reviewers.
Hey everyone, I'm the guy who cut and uploaded the film to YouTube. I'm doing some traffic control work with Rick tonight (the guy who made the movie) and so I can ask him any questions people might have about this film.
This is a "so-bad-it's-good" kind of movie just so everyone is aware (even though Rick doesn't like to admit it, he still thinks it's scary). Personally I think it's hysterical. Maybe not as surreal as The Room, but there's still plenty of laugh out loud moments. The Adam West cameo is absolutely nuts. The first two parts are slower, but as soon as you hit Part 3 it becomes more engaging.
edit1: I'm currently sitting next to Rick at this Ver moment and he's happy to answer any questions people might have, AMA style.
edit2: Some people said they wanted to donate to Rick, so we set up a paypal
edit3: Here is a Vine I made of Rick https://vine.co/v/eKZaK3UdXdP
I find it hilarious how it only got a 65% on rotten tomatoes, despite being such a great film.
It came out right after Gibson went all antisemitic*, so it's clear what happened with its reception.
> blackfish was out at a maximum of 100 theaters and has made about 2 million in half a year
Yea, but it is now on Netflix and the story has received a lot of media and social media attention that extends the information to millions more people.
As of December 30 it has been viewed over 490,000 times on Netflix.
> seaworld owns 11 parks and reports a record year of revenue and attendance
They have only released Q3 financial statements that cover the period following the release of the documentary (July 2013), but this is before it began to receive real attention on media/social media due to its Neflix release (Dec 13, 2013).
Chris Clairemont (writer for the XMen for 17 years, who wrote all the backstories we know and love) specifically says he based Magneto and Xavier on Malcolm X and MLK Jr.
There's a documentary about Clairemont's X-Men on Amazon Prime.
Checking his filmography, I think he last made a good film in 1997 with Contact and Hercules, his agent was right to let him go.
I love how closely that tracking shot mirrors the earlier tracking shot when Shaun walks to the market before the outbreak
Amazon Prime sort of does this, but the caveat is that a production studio has to pick up the film rights for distribution.
When this happens, they usually get a majority of the revenue from the streaming/purchasing of the short film.
But hey, at least the director gets their short film on a platform for others to see.
Edit: I know this because a short film I worked on is on Amazon Prime.
Edit: here's our short. https://www.amazon.com/Stillborn-Symphony-Hau/dp/B07MC5XZYC
Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room - this documentary is an inside look at the biggest corruption case in US history.
It is insane, depressing and a real look at greed in corporate america.
edit: damn, tried finding the full version on youtube or netflix, but the only available one i can find to stream is on their studios app..
ios and android
The first teaser from a couple of months ago features Oppenheimer's post nuke "Destroyer of Worlds" quote (and also shows the corpse of another monster, and lots of destruction, and is a great teaser), so I think it is going to have that focus: http://www.metacafe.com/embed/11070179/
Plus, it is directed by Gareth Edwards., who directed 2010's low budget giant creature film Monsters, so I have lots of faith in this film.
Not the best movie but the animation is crisp and hopefully it'll be a trigger for more DBZ movies. Akira Toriyama stated that IF they make another film he'd like it to be Vegeta centric....jizzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Update: Ask and you shall recieve, new movie announced for 2015!
Hey, I directed this movie. Pretty damn cool to wake up and our little passion project movie is on my front page. Thanks for the love, guys. u/justin_benson loves you too.
I suppose since we're here, ask anything you want about it, and if you wanna see it it's on Amazon prime, iTunes, and basically everywhere movies are sold.
This movie might suck, although I'm hoping it doesn't, but either way, I really strongly encourage everyone to check out the original manga. It's one of the most far-reaching kickass sci-fi stories I've ever read. Sprawling, ambitious story over a bunch of volumes, really wonderful characters, and extremely easy to get invested in. I'm thinking of rereading the whole bunch now that it's back in the mainstream.
Honestly, anyone that doesn't believe in evolution at this point is the dumb motherfucker. How in the fucking world can somebody look at a process as rapid as anti-biotic resistance and still claim it doesn't exist?

EDIT2: For those asking for a link to a scientific journal. It might be a little outdated (hey, a lot of books are, am I right?) but it's a decent starting place.
I've created a single HTML file which contains all of the facts in one page, with pictures etc. for those who (understandably) do not want to page through 179 pages.
Unfortunately it's not split up by film, but I'm sure that's ok!
I personally think they stock really good movies, they just make it impossible to know they’re available on the service. I use the website below (justwatch.com). The link below shows all movies/shows on Netflix with a rotten tomatoes rating greater than 8.3 and IMDB rating of greater than 7 (just an example, there are other filters as well). Check out the selection there.
The Netflix main menu is just filled with their own content and for the most part garbage. It’s a shame you have to dig.
Yep he's blind.
>With his explosive movements and fire-breathing electric guitar, there's no doubt The Doof Warrior is one of the more fascinating characters in Mad Max: Fury Road. Miller told us his was one comic they never got to tackle, and teased the story he'd like to tell.
>"One character who didn’t get his own comic was the Doof Warrior," he revealed. "I want to tell a story about him in a comic if there’s an opportunity. For me, it was all about how someone who is blind survives in this place. How does someone weak survive the apocalypse? He survived because he was blind – because he lived deep in an unlit mine, where it was an advantage to be blind."
>So how did he wind up playing the electric guitar during battle?
>Miller explained: "So, deep in the mine, he would sit there and eat rodents and get the water from the sea bed -- and he would also play his guitar where no one could hear it. One day Immortan Joe came past, and someone heard the music. Then he was called upon when [Joe] needed a bugler or the bagpipe -- someone who helps call everyone to war."
For those of you who collect movies, I would recommend the venerable freeware called MeD's Movie Manager on Sourceforge. Once you enter a movie title, it downloads the IMDb information on it, and importantly, you can export your data to CSV, Excel or html for sharing your library titles with others.
Eventually, I imagine that swapping harder to find titles may end up being the way to go, especially for movies whose copyright holders are unwilling to print and sell.
How in the hell has John Malkovich, Robert Downey, Jr., and Bill 'Groundhogs day, ghostbusting ass' Murray not yet been mentioned?
Just some additional information. Ultra 4K HD Bluray is a mouthfull, but I am sure the marketing chaps at Sony can figure it out. lol.
Yep. Black hats usually try to find vulnerabilities in a system or software and then sell them to the highest bidder. White hats also find vulnerabilities but then turn around and fix them or at least flag them so they get fixed. Of course it all depends on what's considered ethical
Kids-In-Mind does exactly this with a 0-10 system and I've used it numerous times when thinking about which movies to watch with people who I know are uncomfortable with too much sex or violence.
This is easily the worst I've ever seen. I don't know what's more surprising--Bruce Wayne's transformation into Spiderman or the appearance of "Dr. Jackstraw."
EDIT: A dramatic reading by Vocaroo legend Duke
I have to confess I'm INSANELY excited for this.
I remember reading the Steve Alten novel back in the last 90s, and loving it in all its cheesy goodness. I've wanted to see this turned into a film for 20 years.
For $2.99 right now you can go to Amazon right now and purchase a digital viewing of Brooke Shields at age 12, full frontal nudity.
This is the feature debut for Hiro Murai (who's been a great TV and music video director on Barry, Atlanta, This is America, and a lot more). It's a really gorgeous, thought-provoking, all around great movie. Here's the link.
You're god damn right it did, there were fifteen movies before Freddy vs Jason came out.
They then expanded the universe further (via comic books) to include Ash, of Evil Dead fame:
The content of this film is apparently beyond category.
Here's another gem from their "Finding Dory" write-up:
"SUBSTANCE USE - An octopus drinks a pot of cold coffee from the pot."
Nope, desktop! Here's what the screen looks like when opening a random movie
As you can see, no pictures. Sometimes there's a trailer but that's it.
Here's the same page on letterboxd
Much more attractive visually, mainly because of the image.
I pulled up the Kindle sample for 2033 to see if I misremembered something, but no, the English ebook version is garbage. Indentation is almost entirely absent and spacing is missing between some words. Looks like the publisher never bothered to proof the English ebook before putting it up for sale.
I hate the prices too, my wife always wants goddamn overpriced popcorn while I just fill my cargo shorts with snacks and a beverage.
Anyway you got me thinking about how much popcorn $11 could get you if you did it yourself.
Disclaimer: The following is the result of 90 seconds of research and basic math while sitting on the porcelain throne. Don't go burn down your theater and blame me.
I searched popcorn kernels on Amazon because I knew I'd find a wide selection. I actually found a 4lb container for $11.
Mild research tells me a large bucket of popped corn is about 16 cups.
16 cups popped = 1/2 cup unpopped = 4oz
4lb container = 64 oz
64oz ÷ 4oz = 16
For $11 you make 16 large buckets of popcorn.
And 32 small buckets of popcorn.
That's why I kinda hoped that Neil Blomkamp would tackle G.I.T.S. He has a keen eye for realistic looking futuristic sci-fi and he has that grimy and gritty futuristic aesthetic nailed down.
The man loves his Masmune Shirow (creator of GITS and Appleseed) so much that he based Chappie's design off of Briareos from <em>Appleseed</em>. I'm sure that at the very least, he would tackle G.I.T.S with a certain amount of reverence and respect for the source material.
EDIT: Added a few words
Perfect time to point this out
Should Rotten Tomatoes step in as well? Trying to shut down a movie because you don't agree with its message is despicable, but if the movie just isn't that good to begin with, what can you do?

When Marty was asked to make a list, he wrote down "85 Films Every Aspiring Filmmaker Needs To See." Nothing by Quentin made the cut: http://www.openculture.com/2015/04/martin-scorsese-makes-a-list-of-85-films-every-aspiring-filmmaker-needs-to-see.html
Haha, I lied.
He's not deaf.
But if he wasn't, he wouldn't BELIEVE his eyes when he saw what our friends at amazon is giving us! It's a new water bottle by Blender for a low low price of only $7.59! Yes, you heard that right only $7.59 which makes you save a cool Two Dollars and Forty Cents which is TWENTY FOUR PERCENT
I thought the ISS only had dial-up speed for their Internet connection. Did they get a DVD sent up?
Edit: I looked around and found this article which states:
>According to Mr. Frost, the astronauts say it is like dialup, which makes sense.
So it is like dialup but that is due to the tremendous lag and because they are bouncing image data (for security purposes) around on satellites.
The Witch, The Lobster, 24, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Hail Caesar, Love and Friendship, The Nice Guys, Sing Street, The Conjuring 2, Last Man on the Moon, among many others have done well this year. There have been some disappointing releases in terms of franchises, but still lots of great movies.
Edit: You can always check out the Rotten Tomatoes list for top movies this year if you're looking for good new releases. It's not a perfect website as we know, but it looks like about 90 titles have been "Certified Fresh" so far.
It's an entirely different film, as they decided to re-do the entire plot of the movie more than halfway through shooting it, thus ending up with a massive amount of un-used content and primary actors (e.g. Maya Rudolph). The re-cut ("Wake Up, Ron Burgundy") is an approximation of what the original plot was going to be.
It's also kind of terrible.
Going into this pretty much blind I was not expecting Okja to be a high-energy quirky comedy. Tilda Swinton is electric. The movie hits you over the head with its overall message like a wrecking ball. But despite that there is a lot to love about Okja.
I left a review on my letterboxd which you can read here: https://letterboxd.com/krusiv/film/okja/
For the cost of 5 months of Netflix, you can buy it all on DVD.
But yeah, I still mainly use Netflix to watch the same shows over and over again, and among those shows are The Office and Parks and Recreation.
The Assassin's Creed director, cinematographer and lead actor and actress have just come from Macbeth which was insanely good.
Furthermore, the plot that they've released looks promising:
> Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.
They're ignoring the existing video game story and taking the basic elements such as the animus, templars, assassins, hidden blade etc.
In summary, the best directed screen adaptation of Macbeth's director is adapting a popular video game, alongside the cinematography of True Detective one of the most visually stunning TV shows of all time with award-winning actors (1 oscar winner and 1 oscar nominee).. if this film fails it's going to be the screenwriters and I'll be incredible surprised.
You really ought to follow up your suggestion with how to watch it. It's not on Netflix streaming, but it's included in Amazon Prime video.
This Is Spinal Tap was a parody of touring rock bands and their lifestyle, it invented the mockumentary genre and could be considered an event that led to Modern Family & The Office.
Edith Grossman's is simply amazing. She is able to translate much of the humor, which is no small task, and where it simply doesn't translate she documents the original joke in footnotes.

It helps keep share prices reasonable as companies grow\shrink.
Berkshire hathaway is worth $300,000 per share. You can't buy a fraction of a share, so it locks people out of purchasing into that company (intentionally).
Apples stock would be worth around $11,000 per share if they hadn't split their stock 5 times in the past. They do this so that John and Jane can actually afford a share in their company.
depends where you are from. most countries it was released in had their own version of the artwork. there was a post on reddit about it at one point that showed all the versions for the different books. I will see if I can find it in a bit.
edit: BAM! and the Swedish ones
Just shows that the whole "mindfuck" term (which I hate anyway), which seems to place more 'convoluted' or 'challenging' cinema (i.e. anything with a plot twist) above generic cinema, is such a pedestrian term at heart. None of the films listed are that complicated, and the true "mindfucks" -- Last Year at Marienbad, Meshes of the Afternoon, many Lynch staples, many other Resnais films, lots of avant garde shorts (here is a fantastic list) -- are ignored in place of contemporary films with minor twists. Any formal complexity is completely dismissed as 'pretentious' or a 'gimmick' or whatever. This list is just an array of popular films with complicated plots (Revolver? Really?); it's a shame /r/movies in general hates to engage with films that are, in fact, more difficult to understand and interpret.
The original World War Z script written by J Michael Straczynski. This script was completely thrown out except for some names and the main character living in philly and bears almost zero resemblance to the movie that was actually made. If you enjoyed the book AT ALL, I HIGHLY recommend reading this. Its honestly brilliant the way Straczynski strayed true to the book but still created a traditional movie narrative and even expanded on some of the book's themes. If you've never read the book... go read it!
In case you don't believe me, Aint it cool news called the script similar to Children of Men and "a genre-defining piece of work that could well see us all arguing about whether or not a zombie movie qualifies as Best Picture material”. It honestly makes me depressed every time I think about this movie not being made.
> Is it a Christmas book?
It is actually. A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic
Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Somehow went nearly 22 years of my life without seeing this action-packed masterpiece. The Terminator impressed me, but Judgment Day took it to a whole new level. Some of the best action I've ever seen, out of this world special effects (considering this was made in '91), imaginative, fresh writing with sympathetic characters and surprisingly excellent humor, and fucking Schwarzy killed it. That man was made for the role of the Terminator.
I wrote a more in depth review on letterboxd here if you're interested.
The list of Edgar's Favourite 1000 Films that's mentioned in the video.
I have barely made a dent.
Also the bit where Edgar corrects the release year reminds me of a similar situation in a film course I took at college (UK) where my teacher and I disagreed about the year The Wicker Man was released and she double-checked and admitted I had it right. Was a cool but nerdy moment.
(And then everyone stood up and clapped /s)
The Guest is a great movie but the soundtrack is even beyond that. It was compiled by Zombi and you can credit it with discovering the guys who made the soundtrack for Stranger Things, they appeared on 2 tracks of The Guest and all the tracks are that kind of sound. Not the first synthwave soundtrack but one of the best.
There really does not need to be an Uncharted movie, the games are big enough cinematic experiences themselves.
And of the 16 movies Shawn Levy's directed, the highest rated one on Rotten Tomatoes is at 59% rotten.
You should check RunPee. It tells you when is a good time to pee (because the plot slows down, for example). I use it to know if there are going to be post-credits scenes, which is something that RunPee provides too.
One of my favorite parts was the dogs. Talking about how at first they just assigned people new dogs but after a while they learned that the bonding was so intense that they needed to address the human needs and allow them to retire. Or the psychological impact of the first night when they make their stand in the desert and waste ammo just plowing throw zombies.
That is what made the book special. It delved into how intimately human the zombie apocalypse would be. Turning the zombies into human tsunamis is not just missing the point, it is distorting the point into something else.
Also, someone once linked to this WWZ fanfic on reddit. I usually wouldn't read fan fiction, but so many people said it was awesome I gave it a try. They were right. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6115555/1/The_Way_Is_Shut
The first one is called Wake Up Ron Burgundy, and might be available on Netflix or Amazon/iTunes/VUDU. It's definitely available as a bonus disc on the DVD.

Exactly. The movie currently holds a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes but reddit's probably going to say that the positive reviews are all from people who "don't trash any movies" or "don't want to be sexist" and all of the negative reviews as people who "aren't afraid to be honest" instead of the truth that this movie isn't as bad as they want it to be.
Damn, that brings back some memories.

I had no idea until recently that there is no original book - Goldman made everything up. He didn't abridge anything, he made everything entirely up on his own. It's an awesome literary device, I don't think I've heard of anything like that before, and it worked so beautifully. If you want more, go read Cary's memoir and even Goldman's book again!

If I'm not mistaken, he said something in the lines of "otaku culture is the cancer of anime".

By "sketchy stuff internationally" you mean being responsible for the worst humanitarian crises of the past decade, where over 900,000 cases of chorea have broken out since last spring, over 14 million people without basic medical care the entire infrastructure of the country has been bombed to shit, and Saudi Arabia is still leading a blockade to prevent citizens from getting resources necessary for survival, all because Prince MBS decided a weaker country like Yemen would be a great place to have a proxy war with Iran?
Don't wish him the best, he is a war criminal who realizes that their economy cannot be propped up by oil forever so he is trying to show western investors Saudi Arabia is ready for foreign investment. It's still a dictatorship that continues to fund extremist groups and export wahhabism around the world.

Hunt For The Wilderpeople - IMDB - Rotten Tomatoes
A story of a young boy put into foster care in rural New Zealand and the following adventure of him and his new foster Uncle as they trek through the countryside pursued by the authorities and an overzealous social worker.
I loved this film, thought it was fantastic. Has some quite serious and sad circumstances underlying the story but the character and humour of the film manages to keep you in a lighthearted and upbeat mood. I laughed all the way through. Some lovely moments of the NZ scenery and great performances by both Julian Dennison and Sam Neill.
> she's good at voice acting like in Her.
Last time I saw this come up I pointed out that she's actually narrated <em>Alice's Adventures in Wonderland</em> as an audiobook. I'm not sure if anyone here would be interested in listening to it, but it has amazing reviews (and it has a Whispersync deal where you can get it for $1.99 if you buy the $0.60 kindle book!).
Last year, Detective Conan sells more tickets than Infinity War, even in Its third weekend.
It's called ignorance. At some point we all have a choice to either remain that way or change ourselves.
Some type of ignorance is acceptable. For example, I for the life of me cannot wrap my mind around quantum and/or theoretical physics. I just can't and I'm fine with that. I have no interest in hurting my head trying to understand things like that. So, I choose to remain in ignorance.
However, when it comes to empathy or understanding another human being's situation or point of view, I find this completely unacceptable and intolerable ignorance. Shame on those who choose to be this way.
Even if you've never worked in a movie theater or a restaurant, you have at some point in your life had a job that required you to deal with a customer of some sort. You should know where that person is coming from. I don't think anyone working in a movie theater has the intention of specifically targeting you to make sure you have a bad experience.
Stop being so selfish and get over yourself!
Thanks for making this list OP. It may or may not make a difference, but it just might open a few people's eyes.
China has an approximate population of 1.371 billion. 1% of that is 13,710,000. A further 1% of that is 137,000. That's still such a big number.
According to this website, Reddit gets about 1.3 billion unique visitors a day. So if 1% is actually accurate, that would mean China is about 5.11% of all Reddit traffic. Just thought that was interesting.
LoL. Be careful. If you ordered a new credit card then banks are now sharing the updated credit card numbers with merchants to avoid losing transaction revenue.
Stripe actually published this information but most merchant accounts are updating vendor cards privately via the card/customer token and not telling the merchants.
We’ve rolled out support for handling new cards nicely. Now, when you save a customer with Stripe, their card will continue to work even if the physical card gets replaced by the bank. Stripe works directly with card networks so that your customers can continue using your service without interruption.

"One day in 1984 character actor Stephen Tobolowsky (Groundhog Day, the original, unaired pilot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) was walking down the street when Jonathan Demme pulled up and asked if he wanted to see a movie he was finishing. Tobolowsky accepted: taking his girlfriend Beth Henley, they went to the Academy Linwood Dunn Theatre to watch the rough cut of the movie, Stop Making Sense. The audience in the otherwise empty theatre consisted of Tobolowsky, Henley, and Demme, along with members of Talking Heads, including David Byrne and Tina Weymouth. Later, Byrne passed Tobolowsky on his bike and asked if he wanted to work on a new movie. Interest sparked again, and during the ensuing collaboration Tobolowsky shared his past experience of psychic phenomena. Inspired, Byrne went on to write Radio Head. The song was heard by Thom Yorke and became the name of his band."
It is definately real. Its on amazon.
Also, the producer of the film has one of the strangest wikipedia pages ive seen.

It's 12.99 now, but holy hell it's a lot of movies...
Amazon - Saw Collection Blu-Ray
That's the retconned history. The WC1 Orc manual is told from the perspective of Garona and she specifically mentions (page 20) that it's been at least fifteen years since the start of the war.
If it makes you feel any better you can go to Tunisia and sleep in Luke's childhood home. Hotel Sidi Driss is the Lars family residence.

As far as important goes, it's always good to give people a reason to go out to the theatre instead of just watching it on their computer, and in this case it sounds like the quality and experience will be much better. More event movies like this will help keep theatres relevant.
There are a bunch of crappy movies that I wouldn't care to watch again, but that was just because they weren't entertaining.
The only thing I can recall not being able to watch has been the episode of The Office (US) - Scott's Tots (Wiki) (Hulu), it's just so...painful.

He's a hell of an interesting guy. I'd listen to him talk about anything.
Good site for film diaries and expanding your tastes, but the community is terrible. Everyone thinks they're comedians and each page is stuffed with power users and shitty one-liners. If they allowed gifs like Goodreads there would be plenty of that too.
