My Netflix DVD queue is empty! I need some good movie recomendations!

Tools    





My Netflix DVD queue is empty! So I need some good movie recommendations, that I will like!...If you suggest a film that I might like, I'll watch it and review it. I'm mainly looking for newer films from the last couple years to now.

I generally don't watch: Superhero movies, torture horror, extreme action/thrillers.

My Netflix DVD queue is empty, so I need some good movie recommendations, that I will like!....and I'm picky...If you suggest a film that I might like, I'll watch it and review it on my review thread.

If you know my taste in films, you'll have the best shot at getting me to watch your recommendation. Here's some tips:

I usually get newer films from Netflix/DVD.com, but I'll consider older movies too. I like period pieces, historical based films and dramas best.

I generally don't watch: Hollywood block busters, action/thrillers, animation, superhero movies, graphic violence.

List of what I've watched and rated

Start suggesting!

Well that's two areas you should try and improve on.


What's your take on TV...


Foyle's War

Fortitude
Midsommer Murders

Another area that is worth taking a look is prestige pictures from the 1930's and 1940's

Jezebel
Great Expectations
Anthony Adverse
In Old Chicago
The Emperor Jones
Make Way for Tomorrow
A Tale of Two Cities
The Good Earth
San Francisco
Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
Going My Way
King's Row

I don't have TV access. So never watch it.

Don’t Draft Me, I Watch Anime!
How about 1947’s Crossfire? I’m trying to watch more films that people ended up on the black list for:


A man is murdered, apparently by one of a group of demobilized soldiers he met in a bar. But which one? And why?

I love that one! Great Noir, and cool tag line too "Hate is Like a Loaded Gun". Gloria Grahame is awesome in it too.

It’s next up on my queue and I’m really excited about it



Wow, I have 170 movies in my Netflix Q & 87 in my saved Q. Never had an empty Q.

@Citizen Rules, any movie I actually finish is a good movie if you want to have a quick look through recent entries in this thread.

Have you seen Monsieur Lazhar CR? Not entirely convinced it'd be your cup of tea but I found it quite worthwhile. Also no idea whether Netflix offer it on dvd or not

Let me know that you think of Crossfire. It would easily be in a Top Film Noir list, if I ever made one.

I don't have Netflix streaming, so I have to choose wisely to my taste. I only get the DVDs in the mail so if I don't like it and shut it off, I have to watch some days before I get another. I'm trying to catch up on Rate The Movie You Watched Last Night.

Have not seen it, it looks decent.

Not sure how that relates to my post since I have the same plan as you.

I though you streamed movies from Netflix?

Ex_Machina
Moon (2009)
Blade Runner 2049
Good choices but I've seen them all. Moon was my favorite followed by Ex Machina.



I'm not too aware of your taste and I don't know what's on Netflix DVD but...

Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949): Dark comedy where Alec Guinness plays 9 characters.

Kes (1969): Extremely down-to-earth drama about a British boy and his kestrel.

Memento (2000): Mystery thriller that's told backwards.

The Before Trilogy (1995-2013): Dialogue heavy romance that leaves out all the gooey stuff and focuses on the brilliant characters.

Thelma and Louise (1991): Road crime film starring a fantastic duo that gets very emotional.

Out of those I'm must interested in Thelma and Louise. I've never seen it. Thanks

Documentary wild wild country on Indian guru Osho Rajneesh.
Ash, when I was a kid the Rajneesh was big news as he lived in the neighbor state, and some of his high key followers lived in my state.



Mainly I'm looking for English language films from 2000 and up. I've got the old stuff covered pretty well, but I've not seen enough from this century.

You probably haven't seen the movie The Last Five Years (2014). It's a musical drama/rom-com about a breakup that's told in two different overlapping storylines. His storyline moves forward in time, while her storyline moves backwards in time.

It didn't get great reviews, but I liked it.



How about:


Let Me In (2010)
Annihilation (2018)
Iron Sky (2012)
Never Let Me Go (2010)
We Bought a Zoo (2011)
and
The Cure for Wellness (2016).



Good choice! but I seen it, any others

I love Never Let Me Go!, I'm thinking abut We Bought A Zoo. And I will watch Iron Sky, sounds pretty fun!
