    I recommend King's War if you're into Chinese history dramas. It's Gao Xixi's follow up to his great series "Three Kingdoms" (insane that hasn't made it west)

    King's War follows from the fall of the Qin dynasty to the foundation of the Han.
    Oh... nice! Thanks for the tip.
    The 2010 Three Kingdoms series is one of the best shows I've seen. really looking forward to King's War.

    The Dragon Prince (series 3) 9/10 Easily one of the best things on Netflix. Always been a fan of Avatar but this is on a different level, on a par with the best Japanese productions. If you have kids it's a no brainer, but like all the best animation it works on many different levels. Some real feel good TV, very much needed in these fucked up times. Set up for a 4th series which makes me happy. I will burn down Netflix HQ if they thoughtlessly cancel it before it comes to its natural end (adding to those fucked up times :)

    The Irishman is out tomorrow, but at 3 1/2 hours I think it'll have to wait for the weekend.
    Scorcese, DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci, it has to be good, surely.

    Yeah, my boys loved the first 2 seasons and will devour this too. Having watched quite a bit of it, I can vouch for its quality.

    Thatís what I thought when OUATIA was coming out. Turned out nothing happens in it.

    The next big Scorsese film? Really fucking excited. My other half will be asleep within half an hour though, I guarantee it.

    I've watched the first hour of The Irishman. Really enjoying it so far. The story is compelling, the period streets, cars, factories etc look fantastic and they've spared no expense and the age reduction CGI is pretty much flawless*

    *they've given young de Niro really blue eyes. Slightly distracting.

    Springsteen on Broadway is absolutely next level, highest possible tier, funny, moving, romantic, intimate.

    It's news to no one but he really could be the single best performer in the history of rock music

    Pesci didn't de-age quite so well as de Niro and Pacino

    You can de-age their faces all you like but they all still move like really old people. Also they must have spent all the money on the de-aging stuff because the cg shooting/blood spurts looked awful/cartoonish.

    I'm two-thirds in and I've found the de-aging a distraction, really. The film itself is fine if not amazing, just doesn't feel on the same level as Goodfellas or Casino.

    Aye. Missed some dynamicism to help propel through those last 30 minutes.

    I'm like a few people where I pay for netflix myself but have given out my details to a few friends and family members. Over the past week or so though one of them is watching a worrying amount of programmes about Hitler and the holocaust. I didn't know there was as much on the subject as there is on there but there watching shitloads. My continue watching section is like an homage to Adolf.

    Rookie error not setting them up with a profile of their own; poor form if they're polluting yours!

    I'm watching A Bit of Fry and Laurie and it's quite absurd and amusing with it.

    "Girls Last Tour" is a post-war-apocalypse slice-of-life anime, and exactly my jam. It reminded me a bit of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō (although Last Tour's art is less good).

    Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story has arrived: I'm interested in watching that, but don't know too much about it.

    Ronin is also on the service. Sean Bean, Rob de Niro, Jean Reno, Paris: *chefs kiss*

    As a Welshman who studied in Aberystwyth... S3:E6 of The Crown was a fucking strange experience.

    Not going to win me any cool points on here but I can recommend Klaus to anyone looking for a new festive film that's actually decent (too good for Channel 5 in other words).

    Beautifully animated too.

    I can happily second this!
