Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Is this also the thread for non-recommendations? The newest true crime documentary on the American football player Aaron Hernandez is boring, turgid shite.

That's exactly what I expected from the trailer.

Oh my God, Netflix just put up What Did Jack Do, the short film (17 mins) David Lynch made in 2016 and showed on his Festival of Disruption, but which has never had a wide release up until now.
 

It’s absurd, strange and drenched in the trademark oppressive atmosphere that resembles Eraserhead a bit, but in its weirdness resides genuine pathos, warmth and heart. What a perfect little gift on a Monday morning.

That was an experience, I guess. :D

 

Almost felt like a deliberate experiment in how much character you can read from a pair of eyes when you dub audio over them.

Is there actual animal cruelty in isn’t? Can’t watch that kind of thing 

 

They show very short clips before the bad stuff, but there are some sounds. Just skip over those scenes and you'll be fine.

This is probably a big deal to a lot of people. I've only watched a couple and I can't really remember them, I don't really watch anime, but I'm gonna give the big ones another shot.

I wonder if Spirited away is suitable for a 5 yr old?  Not sure if my daughter would get on with it and I can't remember if it had any "scary" bits in.

Thank God. That'll save me hundreds of pounds. My kids love Ghibli stuff. I like most of it too.

A bit scary I reckon. Obviously depends on your kid though, my 6 year old can happily watch stuff that would scare my 8 year old. 
 

Do you use common sense media? If you can avoid the extreme reviews (and the far right bible-wielding nutters) you will often find common themes that will give you guidance.

I'm pretty sure my (nearly) 5 year old could watch Hellraiser and not raise an eyebrow - not sure i've ever seen him scared of a movie (Ghostbuster 1 fridge scene is an exception). Looking forward to watching a few of these with him as many will be new to me too.

 

I like how they're pacing them out. We should do a spin off thread and do a Ghibli film club.

My Neighbor Totoro would be perfect for a 5 year old. In fact, any age.

yes, my daughter has loved Totoro since she was 5 or 6. Kiki’s delivery service is another favourite.

Definitely not one for the kiddies though.

That is odd. Maybe because it's a more "adult" film. All of the others are films you could happily show to kids of any age I think, but I wouldn't show them that. Or indeed many adults. I've known adults who have watched it and ended up truly hating the film - probably because they were expecting lovely Ghibli uplifting stuff and it instead left them devastated. Which is the whole point, but I can sort of understand.

Obligatory reminder that the best Miyazaki film The Castle of Cagliostro is already on Netflix for your viewing pleasure - with English subs, too!

Ghibli allegedly doesn’t have the publishing rights for that one.

There's no chance I'll ever watch Grave of the fireflies a second time anyway.

 

Its just too upsetting.

 

I'd watch threads on a loop before putting myself through that again.

Mine watched it when she was 3 or 4, and wasn’t scared at all. It’s creepy, in a Moomins type way, rather than scary.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower, by post-Ghibli studio Ponoc is also excellent and is (it was!) also on Netflix.

I never watched SE1 because I thought I'd had been axed. Might give it a look now.
