Good idea, a recommendations thread for Netflix would be handy.

I'd recommend Blue Ruin, it's a thriller about a homeless man on a quest for vengance, that's all i'l say about the plot so I don't spoil it, but it's edge of your seat watching and is captivating throughout. I'd highly recommend.

I can't stress how good this show is and nobody watches it Suburra. It's set in Rome. It's like GTA in many ways. It's a crime/political/thriller. 

 

Quick sypnosis. You have 3 unlikely friends that cross paths. One son of a cop, one mowhawked gypsy (being groomed for boss of a gypsy gang)  and one (unfavourite) son of a legacy crime family (blonde guy). The three of them become disillusioned with their crime families, and situation and form an aliance even though their families are at war.  The story is that there's a plot of land being sold by the Vatican outside Rome (Ostia) and the Mafia want to buy so they can control the flow of cocaine in and out of Rome and basically control the city. The mafia use a local fixer to get make sure they can buy the land, but it turns out other parties are interested in the land. During all this we see an idealistic left-leaning politician morph and turn over to the dark side. He becomes a populist and gets votes by raising the concerns of the influx of immigrants from Syria and Africa as an independent. He goes from straight-edge idealist to a corrupt politician and eventually could be the mafia's politician on the inside. 

 

The best thing about the show is the political elements, and how each faction shakes each other down and vies for power through blackmail, deceit and violence. When violence isn't the method used, it's interesting how power moves are made. If you like that kind of thing, mixed with some GTA factions-type action, you'll like the show. It moves at a quick pace and is easily to follow.  

 

 

And if people enjoy a bit of realism, it's based on true events. 

 

Quote

Suburra is loosely based on an actual scandal, known as Mafia Capitale, that first broke in 2014, when it was revealed that a crime ring run by Massimo Carminati, a one-eyed, former fascist gangster (the model for the character Samurai), had so thoroughly infiltrated Roman business, government, and the operation of its municipal services that the city was barely able to collect trash or run buses in his absence.

Seems like The Last Days of American Crime has earnen a scorchingly bad zero rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I wanted to give it a shot but I don't get much time to watch movies these days and the words "Poorly Written" are not inspiring at all. I shall wait it out and see what's going to be the review in near future.

I just got finishing watching "LA 92". It's basically a documentary with archival footage on the events leading up and including the 1992 LA  riots. I mean it was something I knew a bit of, but I thought it was interesting how it basically showed the entire riots play out. It was pretty confronting with some of the people who got the sh*t kicked out of them and even showing the dead, but it was different to most documentaries how you have something talking and going back and forth.

I'm going give this a try and maybe watch all 13 episodes if it's good, anything with  Laurence Fishburne  in is usually good

For anyone who hasn't already given it a chance, I'd highly recommend checking out Wild Wild Country.

 

 

 

 

If you're into documentaries about cults this is your bag, baby. I don't even want to bother trying to explain it because it goes too deep. Just give it a look if interested.

Superb docu-series. 

 

@The Time Ranger: Yeah, Green Room is great too, if you haven't seen it. I think it might be on Netflix too.

This one escaped me. However the critics found it more favourably. On RT 70% of critics rated it favourably and just 32% audience. That piqued me interest. I love when there's disparity like that between critics and audience. 

 

For example, It Comes At Night has an 87% critics rating and 44% audience rating. I was lucky to see this film in the cinema with a small and respectful audience. Although the film isn't my first choice in genre and certainly not my first choice in leading actors, I found the film to be very enjoyable. I wonder what it is? Expectations? I had none. Just watched it because it seemed to be the most interesting film in the theatre that Friday. Does the audience expect a jump-scare, scary-movie? Usually, if not always If a critics score is almost overwhelmingly favourable, I agree with them. Some cult-classics where films don't score well with the critics, I can let slip. Usually the films have huge faults, so they're trying to be somewhat objective but the the content of the film appeals to cult following, such as Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

 

Back to the topic....

 

For anyone who likes cringey comedy and cringer characters like Dave Brent of Ricky Gervais' and Steve Merchant's original The Office, I would highly suggest watching I'm Alan Partridge. Not only is it a masterpiece of delivery and writing from Steve Coogan but it's also co-written and produced by Armando Ianucci (The Thick of It, In The Loop, Veep) and also produced by Peter Fincham (Ali G, Bo Selecta, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Brass Eye) and also written by Peter Baynam (Jam, Borat, Big Train) and has  guest appearances from  Chris Morris (Brass Eye, Jam, Four Lions) and the writers of Father Ted/ The IT Crowd (who were writing Father Ted in the next room).

I saw Green Room a couple of years ago, a great tense and atmospheric watch, worth a rewatch soon, I've got the time.

This is an odd one. I think BBC originally made it but sold the rights to Netflix. I've only watched the first episode but it's superb. Its a about a cop investigating the disappearance of his brother, a Yakuza hitman. The story is obviously more complex than this but I don't want to give anything away. 

 

The cinematography in this is great. Flashback sequences are shot with black bars/(cinematic ratio) and gives this really cinematic feel. It's starts off in Japan but quickly moves to London. It's a mix of Japanese and English. So there are some subtitles at the start when they are in Japan but mostly in English in London. 

 

Currently this has a 100% critics rating on RT and a 93% audience rating.
