Default Netflix Review/Recommendation Thread



I'm currently looking for films to add to my Netflix Queue and thought I would dedicate a thread for people to post recent Netflix movie reviews and possibly some recommendations for future Netflix rentals.

As of right now I'm looking for any highly recommended films to add to my Queue either of the horror genre or otherwise.....so any suggestions on what to rent would be helpful.

I recently just viewed The Last King of Scotland via Netflix and I highly recommend that everyone see it if they haven't already. Forest Whitaker gives a truly amazing performance. Overall: 4.5/5

Sure why not, Netflix has a bigger library so Netlix users could undoubtedly rent anything that Blockbuster online has to offer.

Sweet, I got Shadow of a doubt, a Hitchcock film from 1943. I got it because I was reading a film book, and David Mamet said it's one of his favorite films. This movie is on my top 3 Hitchcock films, though I have only seen about 8-10, more soon. This movie had a lot of good camera work, and the actors were awesome. Def watch it if you like Hitchcock.

I adore Hitchcock, but I've seen so many of his films that I can't keep track of what I've seen and what I haven't seen. This film sounds vaguely familiar....SO I added this to my queue regardless, cause even if I have seen it before, it never hurts to revisit a Hitchcock film. Plus the synopsis sounds pretty fuckin rad. Thanks for the recommendation!

Black Mirror is a good, only seen two of the episodes but I liked what I'd seen. Charlie Brooker is a very good writer. Should check out A Touch of Cloth if you like the writing of Black Mirror, it's not really similar just they are both by Brooker and are great watches. Dead Set is another one, that's set in the Big Brother house (reality tv) during a zombie outbreak.

I've heard of Dead Set and always have had it in the back of my mind as something I'd watch eventually. Isn't there a movie too? Dead Set Serious? IDK.
And I will check out A Touch of Cloth for sure. I've heard HBO is actually remaking the Black Mirror series.

Darknet is really good. It's a horror series. Each episode is it's own story but all the characters and stories kind of tie in with each other during each ep. It's really kinda neat.
