Netflix Recommendations - See OT for other thread

Recommended Posts

Well I can’t recommend Lost in Space, more like lost in bloat with too much stuff around the main story. Just skim watched the series . 

 

Finally watched The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries which was superb, re the press coverage of the Jo Yates murder. Mailed a mate about it and he replied ‘the creepy landlord?’ which sums up the whole warped public perception of the case and subsequent Levinson enquiry.

I had forgotten all about this so appreciate the reminder. Will add it to by watch list...

I just got a content warning when watching an episode of The Punisher: "This programme contains product placement."

 

Eh? Er, thanks for telling me.

That's an Ofcom rule which I assume Netflix are now complying with - same reason there's that weird symbol on ITV shows like Coronation Street (which is packed with product placement although nothing like as badly as the Netflix Marvel shows are). I'd say most UK shows don't have much of it though so you don't see it that often.

 

 

 I've noticed they've started putting age certificates in the top left after you start watching now, too.

I don't know what that says of me that I didn't even notice what they were trying to sell.

It’s just told me that Beyond Skyline has been added. I have seen it alleged that it is much better than the original. Perhaps even good.

Why the fuck do people making Netflix originals shoot them in 2.35:1 aspect ratio ?

 

Wild wild country is a documentary, it won’t be shown in a cinema - it seems a wanky choice by frustrated film makers who won’t accept their paymasters and audience will be watching on a 16:9 screen. I get why the old footage is in 4:3, that can’t be helped.

 

First ep didnt really grab me but will try a second

I saw Rats last night, brilliant documentary on rats. Its eye opening. Watch it ASAP. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I just watched it on the recommendations in this thread. The Louisiana lab bit, followed up with the Cambodia/Vietnam bit nearly made me lose my lunch :(

 

I never realised the problem was so bad with them, but I guess it isn't in our interests to know we're on the verge of becoming subjugated by our Skaven overlords.

Fucking hell Valerian is shit, isn’t it? A beautiful film to look at, spoiled completely by the script, plot and actors.

It's really not.  It's almost in the "so bad it's good" camp, but doesn't quite cut it. It's just really bad.
