In November 2016 I wrote to you what series to watch on Netflix. If you're tired of sitting at the table and eating Christmas dishes, I have for you a list of movies and series from Netflix that you can start watching today.
Today, a small update of the post from November 2016, because we still use Netflix and we often miss for a few hours with a good series. We were looking forward to the second season of Stranger Things, which, like the previous one, turned out to be great. We are currently watching the second season of The Crown, which I also wrote about in the previous one list of TV series worth watching on Netflix but the second season didn't completely pull me in. Unlike several series, which I will tell you more about below.
The series is very similar to Stranger Things, and watching the trailer a bit annoyed that Netflix released something so similar. Nothing could be more wrong. The series is not similar, and the only element of similarity is that the main characters are children. A plus is also the specific climate that is in Stranger Things. This series also draws for long hours. We are looking forward to the second season, because not everything has been explained.
The only thing that bothered me was that the film is German production. I don't really like German, so I had a hard time watching a series with subtitles. We had to turn on Polish dubbing because I couldn't hear it.
We are watching the next season of this series. Although I have the impression that it is continued a little by force, it does not mean that it is wound up badly. On the one hand, I am glad that they did not upload all episodes of the season at once, because we would probably watch the whole episode in one weekend.
The series tells the story of an employee of the White House, who by the attack on the Capitol becomes the chosen one - the President of the United States. Of course, I don't have to mention that the main character never aspired to be President. There are side stories in the series that are indirectly related to the main story. This is a light series, but not without some idealized image of the USA.
I have to confess to you. I didn't think I'd get into this series. Actually, I didn't even think I'd start watching it. However, I have so, that when I start to watch something and the thread is quite addictive - I keep watching. And so it was with the Dynasty, or rather a continuation of the Dynasty (I don't think I need to tell you what the series is and why millions loved it).
The new version is made in a very American style - luxury cars, villas with swimming pools and beautiful Cristal styles, which I often watch with great admiration. There is nothing else for me to do but follow the Carrington's fate.
Jab Harry Met Sejal
I am delighted that not only European news but also Indian ones appear on Netflix. Thanks to this, I don't have to combine it with where to watch an Indian film, especially if it's from this year.
There is a rule of Indian films - if Shah Rukh Khan plays in the series, the movie on 99% will be good. This Hindu actor is simply phenomenal and I could write about him for hours. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to see him live (such a small dream on my list). In addition to Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma plays the main role. The film is set in Europe and tells the story of a woman who lost her engagement ring and guide. Of course, there was good humor, as well as scenes on which you can cry. And if we add songs characteristic of Bollywood cinema - we have an idea for a perfect evening under a blanket and a bowl of popcorn.
Netflix movies and series that you shouldn't waste your time on
We watched several episodes and died of boredom. This is probably the worst film adaptation I've ever seen. Even the biggest fan of Stephen King will be disappointed watching this series.
Gra o wszystko
We were tempted to film because the actor plays it (Jake Johnson) from the series Jess and Chłopaki, which we like very much. The story is about a man who does not stick to money and most of the money loses in poker. Fate means that his shady colleague gives him tens of thousands of dollars to store. Unfortunately, this movie turned out to be so boring (there was really nothing interesting about it) that we barely made it to the end.
