Netflix is slowly taking over the movie world spending billions of dollars annually on its own content in addition to the third party licensed content it maintains. The multimedia library that is available to subscribers is huge and in talking with people I’m finding most, including myself scratch the surface of what is available. While many of you may have now heard of the movie Roma, which is nominated for the Academy Award Best Picture and Birdbox, there are several shows I’ve watched that range from watchable to very good, several of which were recommended to me by friends. Here are some shows/series I’ve watched over the past couple of months:
The Innocent Man, based on John Grisham’s only nonfiction book. (Docuseries – Highly recommend)
Get Me Roger Stone (Documentary – Highly Recommend)
FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened (Documentary – Highly Recommend)
The Last Kingdom (Series – Highly Recommend)
The Last Kingdom is a BBC show that Netflix resurrected from the dead. It is a better version of Vikings without the commercials.
Alt-Right: Age of Rage Trailer (Documentary – Highly Recommend)
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Movie – Recommend)
Polar (Movie – Recommend NOT FOR CHILDREN)
Variety listed their top ten Netflix movies last month for those so interested. Reader recommendations in comments appreciated.
