New on Netflix: Every new TV show and movie coming in November

Netflix has a lot in store for November to keep you up for nights on end binge-watching your favorite shows or catching up on those missed old movie classics. With the pandemic, you may want to think twice about heading to the movie theaters to keep you entertained during the weekends. Moreover, with the cold months upon us, it is far better to spend the day in the warm comforts of our home, all bundled in a cozy blanket and prepped for a marathon on every new TV show and movie coming in November 2021 that your eyes tire out you can barely keep them open.

But with the exciting new titles coming to Netflix in November 2021, we bet you the pizza and beer are going to end up as mere table attractions. The streaming giant has a lot to offer for the next 30 days to keep you up all day and all night. Forget hitting the mall in the cold when you can easily spend quality time with friends and family dissecting crime scenes, mulling over-complicated storylines, comforting each other amid hours-long of drama and tear-jerking moments, and pacifying angry outbursts from revolting scenes.

Suffice to say, Netflix can bring about all sorts of emotions with its host of shows, movies, documentaries, and more. November welcomes the return of Tiger King for one and Idris Elba fans out there rejoice! His recent film The Harder They Fall is available to stream on TV just days after its release on Oct. 22.

Of course, there are also original Netflix series and movies and new seasons of fan-favorite shows from animation, fiction, to reality TV including the fifth season of Big Mouth, new episodes of reality TV Selling Sunsets, new thrilling episodes for crime drama Narcos, and more. Nov. 19 alone has plenty of new movies and shows including the heavily anticipated live-action adaptation of the classic Japanese anime Cowboy Bebop and a promising new South Korean series that dabbles on the supernatural (can rival Squid Game?) called Hellbound. Titles aside, we have also provided a brief story overview of the popular series coming to the streaming giant in this spooky month, so read on below so you can start bookmarking your favorites. So, without further ado, let’s get the list rolling so you can mark your calendar for every new TV show and movie coming to Netflix in November 2021. 

Below are nine of the anticipated shows coming to Netflix in November 2021. We’re going to start off with Season 2 of Tiger King, because why not? It swept American media amid the pandemic because of its central character: Joe Exotic. So read on below for more details.

1Tiger King

Joe Exotic will be missed in this second installment of the docuseries. Understandably so since he is serving a 22-year-long prison sentence for a murder-for-hire plot on his rival, Big Cat Rescue’s Carole Baskin. But he will have a cameo (in a sense) as his phone call interviews from prison will be sprinkled throughout the eight-episode series. His husband Dillon Passage hinted that Season 2 is going to be interesting because it will share a bit of Joe’s arrest and events that happened afterward.

Meanwhile, Baskins is unlikely to return after she called it “absolutely ridiculous” to have to clean the air on TV after Exotic obviously betrayed her. But the season will follow the outcome of her mission to take ownership of G.W. Zoo.

Other things to watch out for in Tiger King: Season 2 include Exotic’s former partner, Jeff Lowe, as he takes over his zoo after his arrest. Then there are the supporters campaigning for his pardon from former U.S. President Donald Trump and the investigation into the disappearance of Baskin’s ex-husband Don Lewis.

Directors: Rebecca Chaiklin, Eric Goode—Cast: Jeff Lowe, Tim Stark, Allen Glover, and James Garretson— Run Time: 5h 58m

A look at the working-class family life in the 1970s that follows the Murphy family as they go through challenges, both mentally and physically. This series is filled with coarse humor as it tells the growth of every character.

You have a father working tirelessly for his family in a job he hates and a mother trying to live up to society’s expectations of what a wife and a parent is supposed to be. Then there are the four kids, each going through their own problems growing up.

This is basically a show about family dynamics and riddled with expletives, and themes on sex and drugs. It’s an underrated show that deserved its final outing with Season 5.

Comedian Kevin Hart steps outside of his norm in this dramatic miniseries in which he plays Kid, a fictional version of himself. What initially begins as a simple visit to his hometown of Philadelphia turns into a matter of life and death experience after his older brother Carlton (Wesley Snipes) gets him into trouble. Kid is someone capable of killing somebody to protect everything he’s built.

Hart serves as executive producer alongside Eric Newman, Narcos and Narcos: Mexico showrunner. “When life throws certain obstacles and challenges at you, sometimes you don’t even know what you’re capable of. And that was the biggest thing, we wanted to put our character in a situation where he could ultimately shock himself and truly step outside of his norm to become a person that he never had no idea that he could ever be,” Hart said of the series which he described as a “thriller.”

10 Coolest and Futuristic Cities in the World

Toronto, Canada

Toronto is also one of the coolest and futuristic cities with its advanced AI financial technology. It is the center of the financial sector of Canada and the second-largest in North America.

Its multicultural environment is its strength that fosters a spirit of innovation. In a 2017 survey, 54 percent of applicants hired in AI companies are international applicants who mostly came from India, China, and Brazil.

Also, it facilitates business start-ups to grow and thrive. The city is home to the highest number of AI start-ups and still growing, with an 88 percent increase this year.

Furthermore, banks in Canada have a long history of commitment to technological innovation. These institutions are taking advantage of the enormous opportunities of AI technologies to improve their financial system.

Toronto’s skyline, meanwhile, represents the city of the future. It tells stories of different historical periods, from its skyscrapers built in the 19th century to the baffling post-modern design of the Gehry Project. The 20th-century CN Tower Edge Walk is a bucket-list item for many travelers.

Toronto has an extremely vibrant nightlife, too. Because of its cultural diversity, it offers a vast choice of delicacies from all over the world.

You must miss hosting movie nights with your family and friends or most times, you don’t. Being a host of a binge-watching party doesn’t come easy. You need to fill your fridge with drinks and beer, ready the popcorn, and clean after the mess once it’s over.

There’s a better solution for you. Set a virtual movie night with them instead without the hassle. Simply install the Netflix Party Chrome extension that allows people to watch Netflix movies/TV shows together. This tool also has a chat feature where you can communicate in real-time while watching a movie.

Everyone in the group must have their own individual Netflix account in order to use the Netflix Party. You can host the Netflix Party up to 50 people, which is a huge audience.

Let’s get a closer look at the Netflix Party features, how it works, and how to install it on Google Chrome, shall we?

Netflix Party Features

Netflix Party is a tool that connects people by watching Netflix movies/shows online with other people. Users can use the Chrome extension to sync Netflix playback with friends or watch together with their family members from their respective rooms.

You can also chat in real-time on-screen about the turn of events in the movie and so on.

How Does Netflix Party Work?

Netflix Party only works as an extension exclusively for Google Chrome, so it’s not available on non-Chrome desktop browsers. It does not support Android, iOS, games consoles, or streaming boxes either. It means you need to use the Netflix Party extension from Chrome on a desktop operating system. The best thing is it’s free to download.

You and your friends can watch via the official Netflix site in your country without the need for VPN connections, mirrors, proxies, or tricky portals. That’s why everyone in the group should have their own Netflix account to access the movie or the TV show playing.

Another cool feature of Netflix Party is it supports HD videos and fast buffering. While chat is enabled, it doesn’t support video or voice chat.

How To Install Netflix Party

To install the Netflix Party, head over to the Chrome Web Store’s extension listing. Add to Chrome in the upper-right corner and tap add an extension when notified to finish the installation.

Now you can set out a plan to host a virtual movie night one of these days. It’s easy as 123. Just follow the steps below.

  • Head to Netflix and sign into your account.
  • Navigate to the movie or TV show you want to watch.
  • Wait for the Netflix Party Chrome extension’s icon to turn red (labeled NP).
  • Click on the NP button.
  • Choose whether you want to retain control over video playback.
  • Click Start the party.

Mallrats arrived in 1995 as an American buddy comedy offering from the funny man and writer-director Kevin Smith. To critics and fans, this is Smith’s most intelligent and hilarious movie despite a disappointing performance at the box office.

The film is a story of buddies Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee) and T.S. Quint (Jeremy London) set in New Jersey. In some shared fate, their hot girlfriends (Claire Forlani and Shannen Doherty) dumped both of them on the same morning.

While T.S. feels devastated about the breakup, Brodie stays calm in dealing with it. On the same day, the two take comfort in a local mall, Brodie’s favorite hangout. They find their exes there, however, and both try to win them back.

For the potheads, meanwhile, Jay and Silent Bob, Stan Lee, the Easter Bunny, and a 3D Magic Eye poster also make special appearances in this stoner movie.

The supporting stars of Mallrats include Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Renee Humphrey, Jason Mewes, Ethan Suplee, Priscilla Barnes, and Michael Rooker.

Stonedest quote: “What you need is a fatty-boom-batty blunt, and I guarantee you’ll be seeing a sailboat, an ocean, and maybe even some of those big-titted mermaids doing some of that lesbian sh**.”

How To Tell If A Girl Likes You: 23 Telltale Signs To Look Out For

“She likes me, she likes me not.” Chant these words a thousand times, but it won’t give you the exact answer. Besides, you just can’t rely on second-guessing whether the girl you like is into you or otherwise.

Interestingly, you don’t need to enroll in a course in women’s psychology either to tell that she likes you, too. You’d be surprised that generally, women are not as complex to read after all.

Here, we pick 23 sure-fire and telltale signs a girl likes you back. This comprehensive guide will help you find a match quicker. On the flip side, it will save you from the sting of being rejected or friendzoned just because you missed the obvious.

These signs are intentional and at times, subconscious ones. Women may either project signs through their body language or their behavior toward you around friends or in public. In whatever ways, the point being is you’d catch and read these clues right. Then, perhaps take things to the next level from there.

So, let’s start discussing the clear signs you need to look out for to know she is interested in you. Also, read some important caveats to remember at the end.  

1Girl putting her lipstick on

She does the “catwalk” posture

Any girl who likes you wants to project her best self each time she’s near you. Subconsciously, she tries to improve her posture knowing you’re looking at her.

She licks her lips and accentuates her hips as models do on the catwalk as she walks past you, or what’s called the “catwalk posture.”

Add to that, she preens herself and puts herself together, which looks kind of hot. She runs her fingers through her hair, straightens her dress, pushes her neck out, stands tall, and pulls her stomach in.

A study by Monica M. Moore in 2010 reveals that women do preening, primping, and pouting when they’re around a man they are attracted to. They may even put a lip gloss on to look attractive. But let’s admit it. Men also often preen when they are around the girl they like.

2Open body language

She uses an open body language

Feet can give you a clue if a girl likes you. Yes, you read that right. Psychologists say how a girl moves her feet whenever you’re around is among the obvious non-verbal hint that someone likes you.

Why is it so? Because pretty often, we humans don’t mind our feet while being with one of romantic interest.

Now, if her feet tend to point toward you, read it as a good sign. If their feet point in another direction, say toward a door then don’t get your hopes up that she might be into you as well.

When she’s sitting with their feet away from her body, it means she’s relaxed around you and a telltale sign that she’s comfortable spending time with you. On the contrary, if she tends to sit with her legs tightly crossed, it means she’s uneasy or uncomfortable with you around.

Also, a woman’s body can subconsciously send clues to a man she’s attracted to, just like her feet. During a conversation with you, she draws her body closer to you and gives you her undivided presence, simply indicating that she also likes you.

If she does not move her body an inch toward yours, it’s a bad sign. You’re likely to be friendzoned.

3eye contact

She keeps longer eye contact

As per FBI behavioral analyst Jack Schafer, people look at people they like and avoid looking at people they don’t like. It makes sense, doesn’t it? A meeting of the eye pretty often means you are into each other.

So, how does it work exactly? A girl is interested in you if she keeps longer eye contact with you when you gaze at her. Once her eyes wander to your mouth, she’s clearly into you and even imagining you kissing her.

Some girls are shy types that she looks away quickly as soon as you catch her looking. If you notice her doing this, it’s best to close in on her and spark a conversation.

Another clear sign that she’s interested is when you two are out with friends, she looks at you first to see your reaction after saying something. The two of you meet eye to eye frequently. She also sees to it to sit close enough to you to have some personal space.

Now, a girl is most likely not interested when she avoids eye contact and rather looks around the room.

4breaking down touch barrier

She breaks down the “touch barrier”

This clear sign is an easy one to spot. A woman who likes you gets affectionate with you. She’s linking her arms to yours or lightly placing her hand on your legs when seated next to each other.

She’s touching your hair or she’s preening you, which means picking lint off your shirt. If she touched you more than five times particularly on the knee, shoulder, or arm, she’s breaking down the touch barrier.

Schafer emphasized that a woman may lightly touch the arm of the person they are talking to. But this light touch is not an invitation to a sexual encounter, rather it merely shows that she likes you.

To test the water if she likes you, try to lightly touch her hand. If she’s quick to pull away, she’s not comfortable with it. This could unnecessarily mean she’s not into you and she’s just nervous. She just needs time to feel comfy with you.

Note that it depends on how naturally affectionate she is as a person. You can crosscheck this sign by observing her with other people. When she’s also touchy-feely with the others, it’s not a good sign knowing she pulled away from you.

5being shy

She blushes

Blushing normally happens when a person is triggered by emotional stress associated with shyness, fear, anger, or romantic stimulation. You notice a pink tinge on a girl’s face when she blushes.

A woman would blush when she’s around you, even just by noticing her or smiling at her. Her face also turns red especially when you throw her a nice compliment on her looks. The caveat here, though, is that she doesn’t easily blush around other men, too.


She mirrors your behavior

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” This is an old saying that best explains why people mirror each other.

Simply put, we want to be like the ones we like and it’s as well true for any romantic connection. When a girl has a romantic attachment with you, she subconsciously mirrors your behavior and body language.

According to psychologists, mirroring is a huge sign that a girl you like has the same feelings for you. A girl you like shares the same level of energy you have or use the slang words you do. In this case, there’s good rapport and high attraction between the two of you.

Researcher and author Jane McGonigal of the New York Times bestseller, “Reality Is Broken,” defines mirroring as a “love detector.”

McGonigal explained that most often, we mirror the people we like with our facial expressions, body language, and even with our breathing and heart rates.


She gets nervous

A girl is definitely into you if she gets nervous and awkward every time she’s with you. She tends to fidget while talking to you, so take notice of these subtle things. It’s either she talks less and lets you do the talking or she gets chatty with you.

You may want to take note of the seven body language clues which indicate that someone is nervous around you. It includes touching her face, blinking a lot, compressing her lips, or playing with her hair.

Also, she rubs her hands or squeezes them together, interlace her fingers, or even yawning, not because she’s bored. Yawning, according to research, helps regulate body temperature by breathing cool air into the nose and mouth.

Here’s a helpful tip: to make a girl you like to feel comfortable with you, be agreeable, and spark a warm, friendly conversation.


She’s curious

Another telltale sign that a girl likes you is she’s pretty much curious about you. She asks you a lot of questions about yourself. That includes asking you about little things such as your favorite color, ice cream flavor, and whatnot.

She is also throwing personal questions about your life. It’s proof that she wants you to open up and let her into your depths. She’s up to keep your conversation going and interesting and develop a closer connection with you.

A woman isn’t into you if she seems not to care, there will be radio silence in between conversations. You’d notice that she’s not invested in talking with you, thus, not attracted to you.

9Speaks softer

She speaks softer

It’s an interesting fact to know that a girl alters the tone and pitch of her voice when talking to someone she’s into. Her voice gets softer and huskier. You can take it as a sign that she also likes you.

A 2014 study suggests that changes in pitch and tone are a natural act of human courtship. It further found that modulation F0 can up proception between couples during the early stages of dating.

10making plans

She makes plans with you

This social clue is dead obvious to indicate her interest in you. She won’t think twice to say yes when you invite her to eat out. If she already has other plans, she will reschedule. She’d tell you when she will be available.

A girl who likes you truly loves to spend time with you to know you better. Time just passes by and realize you have been bonding around each other for five hours.

When a special event comes up, she invites you to go with her. So, in the slightest, she is giving you a hint that she wants you to be a part of her future. This tells you from seeing a movie on weekend to attending weddings with her. If this happens, she’s totally into you.

11talking with friends

She tells her friends about you

Most, if not all women, usually tell their friends about a guy they’re interested in. It’s women’s nature to talk about a potential match with their closest friends to somehow know their opinion of you.

So, now you ask yourself how you would find out if she even told her circle of friends about you. Most often, she will unintentionally or give you a clue when she’d say things like, “My girlfriends would love to meet you!”

As she involves her friends in her state of affairs with you, it’s a clear signal that she wants more than just friendship. If she involves her friends along the way, she intends to hang around with you for a while. And see where it leads to.

12asking about dating life

She asks about your dating life

If a girl likes you, she starts to look at the chance of a romantic relationship with you. Hence, she wants to know if there’s anything that will get in the way like a girlfriend or special female friends.

Once she shows any indication that she’s jealous of other women in your life, this is a telltale sign that she has feelings for you.


She glows, literally

It’s a wonder what love does to a woman. She looks her best, she noticeably blooms like a flower. And Science has an explanation for this phenomenon.

When a girl feels an attraction toward the opposite sex, her body releases the love hormone known as Oxytocin which increases blood flow. An increased blood flow promotes a healthy flow of nutrients, resulting in that healthy glow.

So, when she’s into you, you make her glow. “When we like someone, our pores open, allowing more oil secretion and our skin gets shinier,” life coach and body language guru Tiffany Toombs explained.

Moreover, research from the University of Kent interestingly found that a woman’s pupils will dilate every time she looks at a man she’s attracted to. Try to check her pupils in standard light level to see if her eyes are bigger than average whenever she’s around you.

14revealing plans

She reveals her personal life

If a girl likes you, she won’t have trouble revealing her personal life to you. Even though you only went out or texted a few times, your conversation goes deeper just telling you what her favorite movies are. She shares with you her greatest fears, her dreams, and all that.

All these are too personal to share with the rest of the world. If she does, then you have a special place in her life.

On the lighter side, she lets her guard down so you see her dorky or nerdy side when you’re together. In short, she feels she can be herself around you and she trusts you, which isn’t easily earned.

15Using the we word

She uses the “we” word

When a girl starts using the “we” word, which refers to you + her, is a strong sign that would like you and her to become a “we.” She considers sharing her future with you as a couple.

It further means she thinks of the two of you as one. What’s great about this is you are no longer a stranger in her life.

So, pay attention to the “we” word. It’s a powerful signal to look out for if you want to know how interested she is as a potential mate.

16Giving undivided attention

She gives her undivided attention

When you hang out one-on-one, you can easily notice if a girl is into you. How? By giving you her undivided attention. No distractions. No checking of her social media accounts in front of you or taking or making calls. As simple as that.

She might send text in between and sneak on her Instagram (perhaps to post some of your pics together). But she’s still completely engaged with your conversation while having coffee or dinner.

You can tell she likes you that much if she puts down her phone on the table and focus on you instead.


She texts regularly

Speaking of phones, you can also tell a girl likes you by how often she texts you. If she does at least every other day, it’s a good indicator that is interested in you. She has thought of you and wants to check on you.

She does not only text you frequently, she sees to it that she quickly responds to your messages. She does not send you replies in one word with a period like “fine,” “ok,” or “hey” when you initiate texting her. Instead, she keeps the exchange of texts going.

If you do get one-word responses, it could spell an unrequited love.

18Love for cooking

She shares similar interests

Take it as a hopeful sign if the woman you like often agrees with you on many things. It means you share similar interests especially in things that matter to both of you.

It shows your chemistry is high for a potential love match. It also explains the very reason she likes you back.

Based on what is called the “Similarity Principle”, people like to be around others who also have the same interests, say in fitness, movies to watch, taste buds, beliefs, and so on. This way, you enjoy spending time with each other.

You can just imagine if you two have different personalities. You’d likely argue often that in such a case, you will find it difficult to develop a potential relationship into a happy-ever-after.


She laughs at your dad jokes

Women typically like a guy with a good sense of humor. So, when you can make her laugh at your jokes, she must be into you. Why? Because she wants to let you feel good around her and not embarrassed.

She doesn’t want to snub your efforts to make her smile and laugh. When you feel appreciated, it means you’d hang out with her again. She likes the idea of spending more time with you to get to know you better.

She still finds your dad jokes funny. She’s interested if she’s engaged in your conversation. If you see her smile and giggle while talking with you, chances are she’s hooked on you.

20Asking help

She asks help on little stuff

It’s pretty obvious that if a woman likes you, she will go out of her way to get your attention. She asks help from you on little stuff, the silly ones.

For example, she asks you to teach her how to download a podcast or a video game to her smartphone. Suddenly, she’s “too short” to reach something from a top shelf. But it’s gotta be more than just asking for help. She must be sending signals that she’s a damsel in distress that needs saving.

All this happens when you’re near her to make sure you’d be there for the “rescue.” Just keep in mind, it is a sign


She coyly lets you know she’s single

A woman coyly drops this major signal to a man she likes. She’s dropping hints that she’s single if she tells you how she hasn’t found the right one yet.

Also, she talks about not wanting to go to this dinner alone and she needs someone to go with her. You’re dead clueless if you don’t realize that she’s interested in the two of you going together. Most likely, she’s just waiting for you to say you’d take her.

22Making time

She makes time for you

Time is a valuable and scarce resource we don’t simply waste on something or someone. So, when a woman makes space on her calendar for you, she surely likes you, a lot.

Author of Choose Love: A Simple Path to Healthy, Joyful Relationships Margot Schulman said a girl certainly likes you if she makes time for you.

This clear sign gets much better when she usually makes herself available to you not only in person. She also picks up your call or replies to your text amid her hectic schedule. She wouldn’t bother to do any of these if she doesn’t even like you in the first place.

23Interaction on social media

She interacts with you on social media

Once a girl starts to connect herself to you publicly on her Instagram, FB, Twitter, and other social media pages, she’s most likely interested in you. She’d likely do the following stuff to let everyone her interactions with you:

  • tags only you in her posts
  • posts pictures she took with you in it
  • reacts to your posts
  • shares things to your wall

She’s doing all these things on social media on purpose as her way of showing off the hot guy she met. Everyone on her friends’ list will know you like how much you’re into each other and you are hers.

Important Caveats to Remember

Some cues are complex and some, subtle, so see to it that you interpret these signs within the context of a particular situation.

Don’t chase a girl. It will be a waste of time and energy other than you will look desperate. They say there are many fishes in the sea. Expand social circles to meet a potential mate.

One signal indicating a girl likes you doesn’t merit unwanted advances. She’s just trying to make you do the first move like asking her out on a first date and see where it leads.

A woman who doesn’t look at you while you attempt to engage her in a pep talk is not interested. Don’t assume she’s playing hard to get. It’s as simple as she’s not into you.

But If a girl likes you, you don’t have to try so hard. It will feel effortless, simple, and natural. If the feelings are mutual, it’s meant to be. That’s how it goes.

Escape Plan (2013)

This star-studded film packs adrenaline, thrill, and mystery. As its title suggests, the story centers on making the perfect escape plan. But this poses a challenge especially when it involves a maximum-security prison practically unknown to anyone and where the worst criminals are incarcerated.

The protagonist is Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), a structural-security authority who has devoted his life to making sure prisons are inescapable. Hired to inspect a new facility, he poses as a new inmate but once he is in, he realizes that someone doesn’t want him out. He must find a way to break out and in order to do so, he needs all the help he can get. It comes in the form of the mysterious prisoner Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

This is an entertaining film packed with a star-studded cast. I mean, who doesn’t want to see two of Hollywood’s famous action stars appear together on one screen? Not to mention that they both still look ripped and can kick butts. The movie was well-received it even birthed a sequel, which sadly failed to impress viewers unlike the original.

23 Best Sniper Movies You Can’t Miss

Jack Reacher (2012)

Released in cinemas in 2012, “Jack Reacher” is a blockbuster Tom Cruise-led sniper movie that is based on a series of books by author Lee Childs. Nomadic in nature, the titular character is a former military criminal investigator who frequently travels across states.

This Cruise movie sets off when an ex-US Army sniper is primarily accused of going ballistic and killing five people for no apparent reason. The police immediately caught their suspect who comes by the name of Barr.

Enter the protagonist as Barr asks to get Jack Reacher. However, it isn’t something easy to do, given how Cruise’s character is slippery as an eel, and hard to find while staying off the radar in Florida. As the defense attorney exerts effort to get hold of him, he shows up on his own terms in Pittsburgh.

Because of Barr’s history, while serving the military in Iraq, Jack first believed that Barr committed the heinous crime. Things take an exorbitant turn when he finds out who the real culprits are in this killing spree.

As it progresses, “Jack Reacher” unfolds a backstory between Jack and Barr and reveals why Barr asks for him.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, “Jack Reacher” hit the big screen in 2012 and earned more than $200 million at the box office. Along with Cruise, this best sniper movie stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo, and Robert Duvall.

Survivors of a failed climate-change experiment that wiped out most of all life forms on earth are forced to ride their lives out in a perpetually moving train called the Snowpiercer. Inside, a caste system dictates who gets to live or die.

Naturally, those who fall in the lower class are subjected to prejudice. They live in inhospitable conditions cramped up in the farthest part of the train. They struggle to live through meager food rations.

Meanwhile, the affluent continue to live like there is no suffering, sickness, and death happening farther down. They live in grandeur, unaware of the strife that surrounds them.

As with any class system, there tends to be a revolution against discrimination. This film culminates with those poor brave ones making the journey forward to revolt against their unjust treatment. They risk their lives for a taste of justice and opulence.

Snowpiercer may be set in a steampunk, dystopian future but its story is very raw and real. It tells of despair and rage and of the hopelessness that poverty can bring.

12 Horror Movies Banned For Being Too Scary Or Disturbing

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Editors Rating

  • star

  • star
  • star
  • star

Nothing speaks more horror than gore and everything that involves blood, graphic acts of murder, or brutal violence. Like “I Spit On Your Grace,” this one also turned into a cult classic that gave birth to several slasher flicks and the iconic Leatherface. But here you don’t find a vengeful character but a saw-wielding maniac who craves human blood and flesh.

The story follows five friends who head to rural Texas to visit a relative’s graveyard. On the way home, they stumble upon what they thought was a deserted house, only to discover that it is inhabited by a family of cannibals. The story turns into a game of cat and mouse, hunter vs. prey, as the friends fight to survive.

“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was so disturbing that several countries banned it including Chile, France, Norway, Iceland, Ireland, West Germany, Brazil, Singapore, and Ukraine. The U.K. also banned it and eventually released it without cuts in 2001. Even Australia forbade the release of its 1986 sequel for two decades.

18 Box Office Bombs That Are Actually Pretty Good Movies


The first thing you should know about Annihilation is that it’s gifted with one of the most eerily memorable scores of all time, care of Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow. That alone is reason enough to make you press play on this trippy Alex Garland Alex masterpiece on Netflix.

While we’re on the subject of Netflix, it’s worth noting that video streaming likely killed any chance of overseas success Annihilation might have had.

Netflixed scooped this one up shortly after it premiered in U.S. theaters, which means two things: non-stateside folks only got to see it on the small screen — what a waste — and it’s difficult to tally what its exact earnings are, as Netflix doesn’t share viewership data.

That’s too bad, since this psychedelic monster-ish movie, adapted from Jeff VanderMeer’s cult novel, is one of the most eccentric cinematic works in recent years. Annihilation follows a group of women as they investigate the highly mysterious “Area X” and discover bizzaro creature fusions, plant mutations, and all sorts of otherworldly phenomena.

With multi-dimensional characters, strong performances, visually striking images, and a complex existential question at its core, Annihilation seems poised to be crowned a cult classic in the years to come. You better watch it now before everyone finds out it’s cool.

30+ Best Anime Series of All Time

Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995-1996)

Saving the best of all for the last is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Now, this is what you can truly call THE anime. It boasts all the genres you can think of: drama, action, sci-fi, comedy, suspense, mystery, and more.

This series is way ahead of its time and boasts a uniquely wonderful premise that is experimental but nonetheless a success. The plot may seem simple but it gets dark and complicated as the story unfolds.

Premise:  Shinji, a 14-year-old boy gets a surprise order from his estranged father, whom he has not seen in years, to pilot a massive robotic machine called Evangelion Unit- 01 and use it to fight against monsters that threaten to wipe out all of humanity.

These monsters, called Angels, are seemingly invincible and indestructible, even traditional weaponry abundant in 2015 has no effect on them. Shinji’s average life is never the same again once he embarks on his new destiny where the fate of humanity lies on his shoulders.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a mecha series that has been called a masterpiece by anime lovers and rightfully so.  It is by no means an easy watch since it contains metaphors.

It requires deep thinking since it contains several thought-provoking situations and serious aspects that were not considered entertainment back in the 90s but prove influential nevertheless. It has religious symbolism and psychoanalysis, with the latter highly influenced by the writer, Hideaki Anno’s depression.

The characters are the highlight of the series. You have our hero, Shinji, who is as real as anyone who is struggling through a mental dilemma while trying to face hurdles with a smile on his face but fails to do so.  Then you have Asuka, Rei, Gendo, three characters who can’t be more opposite of each other.

Throughout the series, you see these characters develop gradually so you have time to invest in their story and understand their motivations. Character growth is so deep in the show that you feel strongly for them. Shinji, Asuka, Gendo, and Rei all “tick,” which make them memorable and relatable characters in anime.

Suffice to say, that Neon Genesis Evangelion employs some of the most human characters in an animated series. It shows us that not all heroes in anime are brave, strong, and both mentally and physically capable of control over their lives.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is by far one of the strongest and influential animes to have ever come out on TV. So much so, that even today people are still trying to understand the meaning behind the symbolisms. Anime lovers still pore over every detail and discuss about the series as if it only aired recently.

How To Watch The Marvel Movies In The Right Order?

Let’s get this out of the way first: There’s no right or wrong way to watch a “film series.” The way movies are structured now teach film goers to prize linearity above everything else. And while this approach has its merits, the world of movies is more than just following a sequence of events. It’s also about soaking yourself in mood, atmosphere, aesthetics, and at times, philosophy.

But when you’re dealing with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things get a little trickier. Granted, you can just watch Marvel’s cinematic lineup in chronological order — that is, respective to when each film was released. If you go this route, just like most people have and are doing, by the end you’ll come to be acquainted with the MCU lore respective to how Marvel wants you to understand its grand stories. However, there are several ways to watch the entire Marvel tapestry.

Below, we’ve written an easy-to-follow MCU Movies In Order guide on how to watch all the major Marvel movies in order. By order, we mean a way of watching that will help you avoid the series’ inconsistencies when it comes to continuity as much as possible, of which there are aplenty.

The MCU officially started in 2008 with the release of Iron Man, but that doesn’t mean it should be the first thing you watch. The entire MCU spans 20 and over 10 TV series, with more installments in the pipeline. Yes, this is one of the most massive film series in existence, so we felt the need to inform you that there’s an easy and intuitive way to tame this juggernaut.

But before you take the plunge, take a moment to remind yourself that ultimately it doesn’t really matter in which order you watch these films. As we’ve said, while film shines most in its conventions of linearity, this isn’t the only way to enjoy this medium. Start with Captain Marvel if you very well damn please — your experience will be different than most, but it will be unique to you. And above all, don’t forget to enjoy watching. Without further ado, check out our official MCU Movies In Order guide:

1Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger

If you search for “MCU Movies In Order” on Google, chances are many of the articles are going to say that you should start with Captain America: The First Avenger. Don’t trust any MCU Movies In Order article that says otherwise.

Though it’s not the first Marvel movie in terms of release date, it takes place much earlier than the rest of the movies. The whole film is basically just a stockpile of flashbacks, which means it contains important plot elements and details you shouldn’t miss to deepen your understanding of the grand MCU lore.

In this film, we see the creation of the super-soldier, portrayed by Chris Evans, including his first battle with Hydra and its leader, Red Skull. Captain America: The First Avenger also officially introduces us to the Tesseract, which is a key object in the MCU. Long story short, it’s a great way to kick off the story. In and of itself, the film certainly isn’t the best entry in the MCU, but that’s subjective, of course. After all, it was still 2011. At that time, Marvel was finding its footing as a cinematic powerhouse. In any case, it’s solid, action-packed, and kickstarts the grand MCU tale spectacularly.

Director: Joe Johnston – Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – Cast: Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving – Release Date: July 22, 2011 – Run Time: 2h 4m

2Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel, one of the more recent films in this list, tells us the origin story of Carol Danvers, and it takes place in the ‘90s, so it’s the second film you should see after Captain America: The First Avenger.

Not only does it mark the official introduction of Captain Marvel, it also sets up Nick Fury’s place in the entire timeline. Captain Marvel also picks up the story of the Tesseract, which — spoiler alert, but not really — is what gives Carol Danvers her powers.

This film is steeped in action, but also nostalgia. If you grew up during the ‘90s, you’ll have a field day with this one. Remember Blockbuster stores? Dial-up internet? Yeah, we do, too. By the way, Captain Marvel is the first female-led entry in the MCU, and it broke box office records this year. Talk about girl power, yeah? Marvel, when’s that Black Widow movie coming out? Please get a move on. Sincerely, Marvel fans.

Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck –Screenplay: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, Geneva Robertson-Dworet – Cast:Release Date: March 8, 2019 – Run Time: 2h 4m

3Iron Man

Iron Man

Ah, the thing that started it all. Iron Man singlehandedly catapulted the comic book adaptation to extreme popularity. So major is this entry, in fact, that we’re not even sure if Marvel would have been able to build an entire cinematic universe if the film wasn’t successful. Thankfully, it was, and the rest is history.

While this is the first MCU film released, it places third in this chronology. As the title suggests, the film is very much focused on Tony Stark, or Iron Man himself, more specifically, his journey toward becoming a superhero. Stay around a little while after the credits roll to see Nick Fury talk about the “Avengers Initiative.”

As a film, this is perhaps one of the most memorable entries in the MCU, in large part due to an incredible performance from Robert Downey, Jr. as the titular superhero. Thanks to his expert portrayal, Iron Man becomes this compassionate goof that, while oozing with bro-dude arrogance, shows hints of startling vulnerability.

Director: Jon Favreau – Screenplay: Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, Art Marcum – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges – Release Date: May 2, 2008 – Run Time: 2h 6m

4Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2

Pop Iron Man 2 immediately after watching Iron Man. Beware, though: this is the point where timelines start overlapping and this becomes a bit tricky and confusing for viewers, but bear with us. Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, and Thor all take place at almost the exact same time, so it doesn’t really matter what order you watch those three. Still, we put Iron Man 2 immediately Iron Man just for continuity’s sake.

It’s confusing, we know. But Marvel has sanctioned this lineup, just in case you were wondering. The studio says you should start with Iron Man 2 after watching Iron Man, then The Incredible Hulk, and finally, Thor.

As a film, Iron Man 2 is even better than its predecessor, picking up where the first one left off: Tony Stark is at odds with his identity and at the same time has to thwart increasing government intervention. For a blockbuster, it’s surprisingly adept in showing Stark’s interiority, which is rare for a film this massive.

Director: Jon Favreau – Screenplay: Justin Theroux – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle – Release Date: May 7, 2010 – Run Time: 2h 5m

5The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk follows one of the most unsung heroes of Marvel’s lineup: Bruce Banner. In the film, Banner is on the run from Green Thunderbolt Ross and the US military. When he comes to the awful realization that he’ll never be able to contain the sheer hostility and power of the Hulk, Ross then goes on to create an entirely new version of the Hulk using another soldier. But of course, he finds control slip away not long thereafter. The Incredible Hulk stars Edward Nortorn, who originally played the character but was replaced eventually by Mark Ruffalo, who reprises the character in future entries, in 2012.

Sadly, the standalone Hulk film is one of the more critically panned entries in the entire MCU, but don’t fret. Marvel fans are optimistic the studio will release another standalone Hulk film some time in the future. Stick around up until after the credits to see a scene featuring Tony Stark.

Director: Louis Leterrier – Screenplay: Zak Penn – Cast: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth – Release Date: June 13, 2008 – Run Time: 1h 52m



Thor, the God of Lightning, is played by none other than Chris Hemsworth, and both himself and his character have produced tons of memes, one of them riffing on Thor’s perfect hair. In this film, we follow Thor as he comes to be banished to Earth from Asgard by Odin, his father, all thanks to the sly shenanigans of Loki. So Thor must prove he’s worthy and get back on his father’s good graces.

Thankfully, he meets a pretty cool scientist on Earth, played with gusto and elegance by Academy Award-winning actor Natalie Portman. She helps him place things back on the right course before Loki can pull off another one of his devious, desperate plans. This movie is the perfect precedent to the Avengers film released in 2012, especially considering Loki is the main villain in both. And just like the film preceding, it’s got as much action, attitude, and heart. Hemsworth a measured, thoughtful performance here.Stick around to see a post-credits scene featuring the Tesseract.

Director: Kenneth Branagh – Screenplay: Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, Don Payne – Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston – Release Date: May 6, 2011 – Run Time: 1h 54m

7The Avengers

The Avengers

The Avengers is considered to be the culmination of what Marvel, or Marvel fans, refer to as “Phase 1” of the MCU. Assuming you followed our Marvel Cinematic Universe order list faithfully, you’re already familiar with all the heroes that make an appearance in The Avengers.

In this film, Nick Fury assembles The Avengers in order to face off against Loki, who this time is made a formidable evil thanks to the Tesseract’s powers. Oh, and there’s an alien horde that invades New York City, too. Clearly, The Avengers has their work cut out for them.

The Avengers is one of the most iconic MCU entries to date, not only because it’s a genuinely affecting ensemble film, but also because group superhero films are rarely successful. But Marvel managed to pull it off and put teamwork center stage without losing each member’s individuality. There’s a Hawkeye film in the works, as is a standalone Black Widow entry, and we’ll update this list when those are released. And if the timeline they’re on makes sense, of course.

Director: Joss Whedon – Screenplay: Joss Whedon, Zak Penn, Joss Whedon – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson – Release Date: May 4, 2012 – Run Time: 2h 23m

8Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3

And then there’s Iron Man 3, the perfect palette cleanser after watching The Avengers. Don’t get us wrong — it’s just as action-packed, just as tightly written, and just as engaging as that entry. But this takes place six months directly after the giant brawl in New York City. Here, Tony Stark is dealing with the aftermath of that gruesome melee, which nearly killed him. Armed with panic and anxiety, he sets off building an entire army of Iron Man suits so he can always be at the ready in case another alien form invades his home.

Iron Man 3 is perhaps the only MCU entry that handles mental illness quite decently, as we get to watch Stark’s downward spiral as he fails to cope with his PTSD. This film is a crucial entry because it will serve as a contextual jumping off point for future entries, including Age of Ultron and Civil War.

Director: Shane Black – Screenplay: Drew Pearce and Shane Black – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle – Release Date: May 3, 2013 – Run Time: 2h 11m

9Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World

Then we get to Thor: The Dark World, the sequel to Thor, in which we follow the titular hero as he returns to Asgard to tie up loose ends. He doesn’t have much time to dilly-dally, though. New York City is a trainwreck thanks to Loki’s schemes, and on top of that, the ancient Dark Elves return. Thor’s grandfather once defeated them before and they were long thought to be extinct. But as you in the Norse world, things catch up to you when you least expect it.

Thor must find a powerful weapon called the Aether, which will later be revealed as an Infinity Stone, just one of the six most powerful gems in the MCU. Thor: The Dark World is a pretty gnarly film, and it’s genuinely one of the most aesthetically interesting out of all the entries here. It’s also got a bitchin’ ‘80s-infused soundtrack.

Director: Alan Taylor – Screenplay: Christopher Yost, Stephen McFeely, Christopher Markus – Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston – Release Date: November 8, 2013 – Run Time: 1h 52m

10Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Since the events of The Avengers, Captain America has been working for a special government agency called Shield, but he finds himself in a bit of a moral quandary as he learns more about that organization’s plans. Sebastian Stan reprises his role as the Winter Soldier after first making an appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger, later becoming one of the most iconic characters of the MCU. Here, we also have Anthony Mackie, who plays The Falcon, also one of Marvel’s most beloved dudes. Stick around at least up until the middle of the credits to watch a pretty sick reveal.

Captain America: The First Avenger isn’t the highest-rated Captain American or Marvel film in this list, which is in large part due to its at times wonky writing. Still, it’s saved phenomenally by a fantastic performance from Chris Evans and unapologetically retro aesthetic. These elements shouldn’t meld, but they do, and as a whole, the film’s kinks when you view the sum instead of its finer parts.

Director: Anthony Russo and Joe Russo – Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – Cast: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan – Release Date: April 4, 2014 – Run Time: 2h 16m

11Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1

The whole Guardians of the Galaxy crew make their debut here. It’s genuinely one of the most beloved Marvel franchises to date, in large part because it’s super off-kilter and unlike the rest of its cinematic siblings in surprising ways. It’s got a killer soundtrack, to boot. Thanos is back, and the story focuses on a new Infinity Stone called the Power Stone, which is housed within the orb.

We follow Christ Pratt as Peter Quill, a rogue scavenger who stumbles across the Infinity Stone, and with a ragtag group of friends equally jaded and skewed as him, they race against time to stop Ronan the Accuser from wielding the Power Stone. Like all the MCU movies before it, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 is packed with action, each setpiece and sequence more elaborate and filled with spectacle than the last. But not only that, this film is also brimming with personality. Perhaps it might even be one of the few films in the Marvel conan unafraid to crack jokes about itself. Very meta.

Director: James Gunn – Screenplay: James Gunn and Nicole Perlman – Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista – Release Date: August 1, 2014 – Run Time: 2h 2m

12Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Immediately after finishing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, get on with the second volume stat. Since this article is about what order to watch Marvel movies in, we’d argue you should don’t watch anything after Vol. 1 other than Vol. 2.

The critically acclaimed sequel follows a few months after the original, so the story remains fresh if you just happened to breeze through the first film. Here, Quill is falling deeper in love with Gamora, played by the amazing Zoe Saldana. The film delves into Quill’s past, and he’s also made to confront its mysteries when he comes face to face with a godlike character known as Ego. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most original Marvel entries ever, just like its predecessor. Though it follows a very rigid storytelling formula, its execution and charm is unlike any other film in the MCU.

As a whole, we’re not really sure if this is the absolute right place to put these two films in. That’s because both Guardians of the Galaxy films seem to occupy its own timeline entirely, devoid of chronological relations to other MCU movies given that it all takes place in outer space. But if you trust us, there would be no problems in regards to coherence. Just keep following this MCU release order we’ve cobbled up and you’ll be fine. Promise.

Director: James Gunn – Screenplay: James Gunn – Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista – Release Date: May 5, 2017 – Run Time: 2h 17m

13The Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Now comes the really fun stuff. We’re edging closer and closer to Endgame, easily the most momentous entry in the whole Avengers saga, which means the films nearest that film are much more engaging since there is a lot more at stake this time.

In Age of Ultron, the Avengers reunite to confront a mistake perpetrated by Tony Stark himself and Bruce Banner: an artificial intelligence called Ultron. This film is a huge turning point in the MCU canon in terms of setting up the events of Infinity War and beyond. At this point, the wear and tear in the team spirit become noticeable. It also introduces new Avengers: The Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Vision, played by Elizabeth Olson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany, respectively. Stick around at least until the middle of the credits to see a scene where Thanos picks up the Gauntlet for the first time. Spooky.

Director: Joss Whedon – Screenplay: Joss Whedon – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson – Release Date: May 1, 2015 – Run Time: 2h 21m



In Ant-Man, we welcome Paul Rudd into the Marvel family. He plays a cat burglar recruited by Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, to wear the Ant-Man suit in order to stop the technology from landing on the hands of evil.

Corey Stoll plays Pym’s menacing former prodigy, who has recreated the technology in the form of a yellow jacket suit. Ant-Man’s job is to stop him and save the day. Ant-Man is one of the weirdest entries in the list of Marvel movies, but in a good way. It’s truly boggling how underrated this gem is. Seriously. An ant-sized superhero? The setpieces are spectacular and unlike any other, given they’re micro. This small-scale film has a pretty big heart. Rudd is great as the titular hero, as he is in everything.

This film also acts as a signpost for the beginning of the “next generation” of the MCU lore. It also introduces the Quantum Real, which is super crucial to the events in Endgame.

Director: Peyton Reed – Screenplay: Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay – Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll – Release Date: July 17, 2015 – Run Time: 1h 57m

15Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War

Then we get to Captain America: Silver War. Although the title features the Captain himself, almost every single Avenger makes an appearance in this film, while introducing two more significant additions to the lineup: Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, and Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, who’s youth is a striking metaphor to the essence of Spider-Man, which is a teenage boy learning the responsibilities of being a hero and finding difficulty fitting into that role. It’s a joy to see Holland nail that anxiety.

Back to the Avengers: Here, they’re all split into teams because Captain America wants to save his friend Bucky Barnes, who appears to be responsible for the bombing of a United Nations session. This also marks the point where — spoilers ahead — Tony Stark and Captain America go on separate ways, which creates problems because soon Thanos will wreak havoc.

Director: Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo – Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Tom Holland – Release Date: May 6, 2016 – Run Time: 2h 27m

16Spiderman: Homecoming

Spiderman: Homecoming

After enjoying a bit of the spotlight in Captain America: Civil War, Holland gets to star in his own movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming. The web-slinging hero is fantastic in his solo debut, facing off Vulture, played by Michale Keaton, a construction foreman who has turned into a weapons dealer on the black market after acquiring technology from the New York City battle in the first Avengers film. The continuity is simply delicious.

On top of such massive perils, Peter Parker is also trying to deal with the ins and outs of being a teenager, specifically being a freshman in high school, which comes with its own challenges that rival Keaton’s menace. Indeed, the world of high school can be just as daunting as a super evil madman who wants to wreak havoc, but mysteriously, you come out alive after everything. As we’ve said, Holland nails it as both Parker and Spider-Man. His portrayal is really what makes this movie truly alive, plus excellent performances from castmates Zendaya and Jacob Batalon.

Director: Jon Watts – Screenplay: Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Jon Watts – Cast: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau – Release Date: July 7, 2017 – Run Time: 2h 13m

17Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch officially becomes the newest member of the Marvel family, playing Stephen Strange, a world-class surgeon who, after a tragic accident, is left unable to use his hands. Pretty rough if your job requires you to use your hands at all times.

Strange then travels the world seeking a cure that will give him back the ability to wield his hands. He does find it, but not in a way he was expecting. We’ll leave the rest of the details out — just watch it, it’s a joy.

This film also officially introduces the Time Stone, which is housed within the Eye of Agamotto. Doctor Strange is tricky to place in a MCU chronological order list since the events are spread over an extended period of time. It starts at around the events of Civil War but ends right around the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming. But fear not, the story will make sense, just trust us.

Director: Scott Derrickson – Screenplay: Jon Spaihts, Scott Derrickson, C. Robert Cargill – Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams – Release Date: November 4, 2016 – Run Time: 1h 55m

18Black Panther

Black Panther

If we started talking about how important a film Black Panther is in the grand scope of cultural conversation, we’d run out of words. It is singularly one of the most impressive and unique Marvel entries to date, rich in African motifs, with nearly every frame of this utterly gorgeous film painted with elements pulled from the enormous archive of African artifacts.

In this film, we follow T’Challa home to Wakanda as he’s about to be named king. There, he faces Killmonger, a mistake in his father’s past that now wants to take over the throne. Played with terrifying brio and physicality by Micahel B Jordan, Killmonger is easily one of the best villains in the history of Marvel films.

To note, Black Panther starts soon after the events of Civil War, so you can watch it after watching that film, but Marvel itself prefers this order. If you want to go your own way, be our guest.

Director: Ryan Coogler – Screenplay: Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole – Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o – Release Date: February 16, 2018 – Run Time: 2h 14m

19Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok

This is the third solo film for Thor, and here we find the hero slung across space after his father dies and his hammered is destroyed by Hella, his long-long sister, played by the Academy Award-winning actor Cate Blanchett.

Also, here Thor and the Hulk team up with Loki and Valkyrie, played by Thessa Thompson, to take on Hella. Note: This is the first time we see Thor and The Hulk after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor:Ragnarok picks up two years after that film. Stick around at least until the middle of the credits to see Thor and company run into Thanos’ ship. Thor: Ragnarok is one of the most critically acclaimed of all Marvel films, in large part because of the performances and Taika Waititi’s direction. Many critics say it’s the best installment in the Thor trilogy, so you’re in for a real treat.

Director: Taika Waititi – Screenplay: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher L. Yost – Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett – Release Date: November 3, 2017 – Run Time: 2h 10m

20Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp

In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang is back, but in house arrest following his role in the Civil War. Also, he hasn’t seen Hope, Hank Pym’s daughter. Still, he agrees to do them a favor, believing Pym will be capable of recovering Hope’s mother from the Quantum Realm. We won’t spoil any more details, just go see it. Ant-Man and the Wasp is seriously one of the strongest sequels Marvel has ever put out. The set pieces are grander. The fight sequences are even more elaborate and spectacular. It’s just much, much better across the board.

A little note, though: Ant-Man and the Wasp is particularly tricky to place in this timeline because it takes place at the same time as Infinity War, with its mid-credits scene lining up with the infamous “Snap.” However, it would be wrong to place it between that film and Endgame because those two movies are essentially one long tale spliced into halves. Anyway, we think is the right spot for it.

Director: Peyton Reed – Screenplay: Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd – Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña – Release Date: July 6, 2018 – Run Time: 1h 58m

21Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War

Then we come to the Infinity War. After carefully orchestrating a grand plan to collect all the Infinity Stones, Thanos, played by Josh Brolin, decides to just collect the stones himself. Problem is, the Avengers is an obstacle he must overcome, a tall order considering they’re spread across the universe. Thanos of course manages to collect all the Infinity Stones required to wipe out half of the entire universe. And here is where he does the iconic Snap, erasing 50 percent of all life in the grand tapestry of existence.

Despite that, this movie is really, really fun to watch. Not because half of our beloved cast is mercilessly punted into the sunset. There’s just a simple joy and jolt of energy in seeing Marvel really commit to storytelling and raising the stakes, even if it means killing some of the most iconic characters in the history of cinema.

Director: Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo – Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt – Release Date: April 27, 2018 – Run Time: 2h 29m

22Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame

And thus, we come to the point where it all ends. After Thanos wipes out half of all life in the universe, the Avengers must somehow make things right again, but how? Well, five years pass. A small chance to undo all of Thanos’ damage lands on their lap, but before that can happen, Tony Stark and Captain American must first get in each other’s good spirits again.

The stories and character arcs we’ve been following since the first Iron Man film and the first Avengers film coalesce in this tearful, gorgeous sendoff. Each plot comes to fruition at this point, and it is seriously impressive seeing how Marvel has managed this feat, given the behemoth MCU has become. Do not ever watch this film without first following this list first. Do not skip to Endgame, for the love of all things holy. Trust us, it’ll just ruin the experience. Or at least it wouldn’t be as impactful.

Director: Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo – Screenplay: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, – Release Date: April 26, 2019 – Run Time: 3h 1m

23Spiderman: Far From Home

Spiderman: Far From Home

Spoilers ahead: Spider-Man: Far From Home is the most recent MCU film, and the first to take place post-Snap. More than centering on Parker’s adventures for a second time, it also tries to offer us, the audience, a look at an MCU without Tony Stark.

We welcome Jake Gyllenhaal to the Marvel family, here playing Mysterio, Spider-Man’s nemesis du jour. It’s not entirely clear who exactly Mysterio is, though. Is he someone Spider-Man can trust? Or is he harboring secret evil for our web-slinging friend? Well, you have to watch to find out.

Spider-Man: Far From Home also marks the new “phase” in the MCU. For 10 years, the series was built toward the Infinity War. With that chapter closed, it’s time to see what’s next. With that, this list is officially finished. For now, of course. Marvel recently announced a ton of new films still in the pipeline, including a standalone Hawkeye film, which could be interesting. Stay tuned.

Director: Jon Watts – Screenplay: Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers – Cast: Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya – Release Date: July 2, 2019 – Run Time: 2h 9m

1Life Story

Life Story

We like to begin strongly, right off with Life Story. This nature documentary series is a collaboration between BBC and The Open University. This show displays how animals do what they can to hurdle the threats they encounter throughout their lives. It also shows how they still further their species by bearing offspring.

Distributed by BBC, this nature documentary is available for one whole season. It has six main episodes, with six extra episodes that let you take a peek into the behind-the-scene footages of the series.

The purpose of creating Life Story is to account the life, from birth to death of a myriad of wild animals. These include tigers, elephants, chimpanzees, and many others.

272 Cutest Animals

72 Cutest Animals

72 Cutest Animals, as the name suggests, is indeed a cute nature documentary from Showrunner Productions. The creator has, in fact, a number of titles on Netflix. It is mainly famous for documenting the deadliest and most terrifying animals in the world.

However, in 2016, Showrunner Productions also went out of its way to offer a look at the other end of the spectrum. It created 72 Cutest Animals, which spans 12 episodes for its one-season run. The show gives a glimpse at baby polar bears, monkeys, tiger cubs, and most significantly, the Koalas.

72 Cutest Animals, in fact, offers a visually stunning look at the world’s most adorable animals.  In this show, creatures are interestingly rated on their cuteness and then ranked on a sliding scale wherein the cutest animal on the planet will ultimately be unveiled.


Nature’s Great Events: Diaries

Also distributed by the king of nature documentaries BBC, Nature’s Great Events: Diaries is available for one whole season. Compared to other shows, this series is quite unique. It centers on the natural phenomenon of where animals migrate due to breeding or changes in the climate.

The series runs for six episodes, which range from the great artic melt, the great salmon run, to the great flood. While Nature’s Great Events: Diaries may not be on par with BBC’s best nature documentaries, it still meets the fans’ expectations.

Nature’s Great Events: Diaries was released for television in February 2009.



Nature is produced and distributed by PBS. It features four various nature documentary series that document different creatures around the planet. All four seasons are available to watch on Netflix.

The first season of the series titled NATURE: Natural Born Hustlers takes a look at naughty and hard grafting animals across four episodes.

The second one, meanwhile, is called NATURE: Raising the Dinosaur. In this season, a team examines the most recent discoveries of dinosaur fossils. This particular season of the series, however, has received mixed reviews from critics.

The third season, NATURE: Animals with Cameras, is a three-part documentary. It narrates how most of the nature documentaries use cameras in unlikely ways. This includes the part of animals where they wear those cameras.

The fourth series is called Nature’s Great Race. It is epic footage that captures a trio of the world’s most historical land migrations. The show follows the hazardous journey of elephants, caribou, and zebras.


Mission Blue

Netflix collaborated with award-winning filmmaker James Cameron to produce Mission Blue. Released in 2014, this documentary is inarguably an eye opener that investigates the extreme conditions some of the ocean creatures live in.

Mission Blue explores what are the causes and effects of the problem, and foremost, the solutions. Also, it calls for action to protect the ocean and its vital ecosystems.

This documentary surely looks stunning. It represents the life and work of Sylvia Earle, an oceanographer, marine biologist, and environmentalist.

Mission Blue runs for a 1 hour and 34 minutes.

672 Dangerous Animals

72 Dangerous Animals

A collection of the more recent seasons of 72 Dangerous Animals from Showrunner Productions are also currently available for streaming on Netflix. Every season, the show transports the audiences to a different place on Earth to document and catalog the world’s deadliest animals in various forms and sizes.

Season 1 of 72 Dangerous Animals explores the continent of Australia. The 12 episodes of the first season look into most dangerous animals in the land, from spiders to snakes.

Season 2, meanwhile, is the first to be tagged as a Netflix Original. In the 12 episodes of this season, you will journey to Latin America as it covers sea life and stealth hunters.

The latest season of 72 Dangerous Animals was released in 2018. The show, this time, travels to the vast continent of Asia.



Africa is another BBC-produced nature documentary in collaboration with The Discovery Channel. Spanning a single season, this show looks into Africa as home to world’s most diverse living animals.

This mini-series comes in six installments. It displays gorgeous animal species and biomes that continue to thrive in the vast and diverse environments of Africa. It also includes hours of never-before-seen footage of plants and weather in some of the furthest places on the planet.

Africa took four long years to make. The show captures a wide array of never-before-filmed species, from lions to dung beetles, and discover previously unchartered places.

David Attenborough himself presents and narrates on location. As always, he gets to deliver the same quality that viewers expect of him. He takes nature lovers on a ride through the harsh deserts, lush savannahs, and the continent’s deepest jungles. According to Attenborough, there’s nowhere in the world where wildlife puts on a greater show.

This critically acclaimed nature documentary also gets a companion book titled Africa: Eye to Eye with the Unknown. This companion book is authored by Michael Bright, an ex-producer of BBC Natural History Unit. The foreword is written by David Attenborough himself.


DisneyNature: Wings of Life

Apart from its popular live-action and animated family-oriented movies, Disney also produces nature documentaries courtesy of DisneyNature department. Over the years, the largest entertainment company has produced breathtaking documentaries featuring some talented presenters. However, such content is not given that much credit.

Netflix luckily secures Wings of Life as the only available DisneyNature title for streaming on its platform. It is expected, however, that it will be moved to the new Disney streaming service later this year.

DisneyNature: Wings of Life beautifully presents flying critters, such as butterflies as well as birds of different kinds. What makes this nature documentary even more impressive is the special participation of multi-award winning actress Meryl Streep as the narrator

9Life Below Zero

Life Below Zero

BBC and National Geographic have brought to the fore Life Below Zero. This nature documentary series spans a total of nine seasons. However, Netflix is half-way behind on the show with only four seasons available for streaming on its platform.

Life Below Zero is a fascinating documentary that explores the coldest reaches of our planet. This show will open your eyes to the life of the inhabitants there, including the ecosystems in icy regions.

Also, it documents how terrifying the extent to which people will go just to survive in the harshest environment. Nevertheless, Life Below Zero is another well-produced series from BBC.



MeatEater also serves as one of the best nature documentaries you need to check out on Netflix. Distributed by the streaming giant, this show produced by Zero Point Zero Productions runs for seven seasons.

The show’s past season is the first one to be featured under the Netflix Original banner worldwide. Unfortunately, you can only stream three out of the seven episodes on Netflix. Particularly, you can watch seasons five through to seven. Some argue that these seasons are when the show started to do really well.

MeatEater looks into hunting and takes the viewers to different parts of the world to do so. However, if you are not much into hunting, this series is not for you, therefore, you can skip it. It tackles things surrounding hunting as a hobby and the ethics involved.

As of now, it remains to be seen whether MeatEater will get an order for an eighth season.


The Ivory Game

The Ivory Game is a film produced by famous Titanic actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Unlike other warm and fuzzy nature documentaries, this feature exposes the dark, twisted world of the illegal ivory trade.

More recently, the world has become aware of the plight of wild elephants in Africa and taken interest against poaching. Each of the show’s moment is remarkable. It is absolutely genuine in revealing to the viewers that side of life that has been lightly shown before.

In this nature documentary, filmmakers went undercover with ivory poachers. For 16 months, they investigated the killing of elephants for their tusks. The smuggling of ivory is rampant in China where ivory is seen as a status symbol.

Although legal in the country, the exposé highlights the black market where unacceptable business practices of ivory trade transpire.

The Ivory Game gets to unravel the corruption behind the continuity of the illegal ivory trade. In fact, African elephants are now on the verge of extinction.

This epic nature documentary journeys from Tanzania, Zambia, and Kenya to China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam, with a short stop in London, UK.

Illegal ivory trade has since become an alarming global environmental issue. Governments and the environmental advocates are now said to be taking steps to stop poaching before African elephants go extinct.

12Frozen Planet (Collection)

Frozen Planet (Collection)

Distributed by BBC Earth and co-produced by Discovery Channel, the Frozen Planet collection is currently available to stream on Netflix. The collection includes Frozen Planet, Frozen Planet: On Thin Ice, The Making of Frozen Planet, and Frozen Planet: The Epic Journey.

The seven-part series tackle their distinctively epic journey and unfold the ultimate portrait of the planet’s Polar Regions. It also looks into the life and the Arctic and Antartic environments.

The creators made the Frozen Planet to purposely film an encompassing account of the natural history of the Polar Regions. That is especially now that climate change has begun to have an alarming impact on glaciers, ice shelves, as well as the extent of sea ice.

The footage offers the audiences a peek at cute and magnificent animals living in the coldest depths of Earth. Overall, this nature documentary is as captivating and beautiful as it is an invaluable piece of research.

Frozen Planet is among the contents available on Netflix that also features Sir David Attenborough. The production crew explored the frozen depths for a total of 2,300 days.


Blue Planet I & II

Our guide to the best nature documentaries to stream on Netflix does not dare to miss two of BBC’s top-rated docuseries, Blue Planet I & II. Once again, David Attenborough returns in these epic shows that explore the Earth’s oceans.

The Blue Planet opens our eyes to the vast surroundings left unseen beneath the sea and what happens under the waves of the ocean. It looks into the lives of plants and animals teeming under the sea.

This BBC show takes a deep plunge into the fascinating underwater world to discover different creatures, no matter how small, at each level of the ocean. You will be amazed at the gigantic blue whale that has a heart as huge as the size of a car but not only that. You’d be mesmerized by the graceful dancing dolphins and by the most bizarre species breathing at the ocean’s abyss.

Both the Blue Planet I and Blue Planet II are wonderfully told and masterfully crafted. Truly, they are the best-in-class, proving once more BBC’s successful feat in making some of the world’s most remarkable nature documentary shows.

Blue Planet II is one of the recently released documentary shows on Netflix. It first aired in 2017 on the BBC and has since brought a significant impact across regions in the world.

The show serves as a wake-up call on the issue of plastic that kills fishes and other species in the oceans. It has inspired public movement and change to do something about this global environmental concern.



Netflix’s documentary Virunga has received an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature. This show is a mix of investigative journalism and nature documentary made in partnership with Leonardo DiCaprio.

This feature takes a closer look at the struggle to control Congo’s abundant natural resources. It further gives credit to the embattled team of park rangers who devote their lives to preserving Virunga National Park and protect the endangered mountain gorillas in Africa their most possible way.

Virunga centers on the conservation effort and investigates the operations Soco International, a British oil company, inside the UNESCO World Heritage site. It exposes how rich ecosystems, particularly the Virunga National Park, have become battlegrounds for governments and sites of corruption.

After Virunga’s nomination at the Oscars, fans can look forward to seeing more of DiCaprio-produced nature documentaries. It is expected that environmental films are in the pipeline as the actor entered into a multi-year partnership with Netflix.

15Planet Earth

Planet Earth I & II

Just like Blue Planet I & II and other huge docuseries, Planet Earth I & II are also distributed by BBC. This nature documentary showcases an excellent craft in filmmaking.

Planet Earth initially debuted on the small screens back in 2006. It achieved unprecedented success in documenting a wide array of animal species and locations across the planet. This BBC series has, in fact, received accolades and awards for its role in transforming the ways viewers look at nature.

Voiced by naturist icon David Attenborough, the critically acclaimed BBC documentary span 11 episodes. Each episode takes the audiences on a thrill ride across the planet and journey to places they have never gone to before. You start discovering the myriad of creatures living in different regions on Earth and how they interact with their respective habitats.

Sure, this series won’t disappoint, especially when you view it in high definition. As with Blue Planet, Planet Earth series is just as completely stunning, specifically Planet Earth II, which is available on Netflix in Ultra 4K definition.

The exact same team returns in the second season with all-new footages.  It even looks like the BBC raised the bar a notch higher when it released Planet Earth II 10 years after Planet Earth I.

The original Planet Earth captivates viewers with breathtaking sights of nature around the world but the sequel is much more delightful. It showcases the diversity of wildlife around the world, ranging from the warmest tropics to the coldest mountain reaches.

Both seasons of Planet Earth are awesomely beautiful. You will absolutely be blown away as you discover the diverse biomes of our planet. It is highly recommended that each and everyone in the world should watch this epic nature documentary film.

Planet Earth took five years to make that it was even dubbed as the gold standard for nature documentaries. Filmed in early, the miniseries was the only docu-series that was shot in high definition as it explored the exotic but horrifying territories on planet Earth.



Netflix brings one of its original heart-warming documentary series called Dogs. When it was released in November last year, the show instantaneously took the social media by storm.

The viewers were taking adorably cute photos and videos of their own pet dogs watching Dogs and shared them on their walls. And why not?

This special “dogumentary” tells intimate stories of the emotional connection between dogs and their persons. It also presents the tail-wagging tale of Zeus, a Syrian refugee husky, Ice, a Labrador of an Italian fisherman, and Rory, a service dog.


Our Planet

Our Planet is the latest ground-breaking nature documentary from the creators of Planet Earth and Blue Planet. It debuted on Netflix just last month. Also voiced by the iconic naturalist David Attenborough, this docuseries attempts to take a look at our planet, hence the title of the show.

In this nature documentary, you would be able to learn the various issues and predicaments the entire world is facing. It also presents what are the possible solutions to the problems, including some blueprints of full rehabilitation.

Our Planet will introduce nature lovers to the furthest biological realms, from animal migrations in Africa and unfathomable depths of the oceans to the pack of wolves wandering in the Chernobyl’s forests.



Blackfish is an unforgettable documentary film that startled the world when it first hit the small screens about seven years ago. This feature digs up the underlying impact of holding orcas, otherwise called killer whales, in captivity.

Blackfish tells the tale of one performing orca known as Tilikum. The killer whale was involved in the death of SeaWorld’s lead trainer Dawn Brancheau and two other people.

The show focuses on the effect of lifelong captivity on the creature and its intelligence. This film to critics is powerful and troubling, as it exposes SeaWorld’s perilous entertainment trade. In fact, this documentary takes is powerful, the amusement park had to carry out some changes.

Overall, Blackfish is hailed as an aggressive, impassioned nature documentary show to watch. After which, you will not look at performing killer whales the same way again. Truth is, the show has brought a heavy impact that is still felt until now since it made its debut many years back.



Life is Netflix’s incredible feature voiced by the recognized master of nature documentaries David Attenborough. The Emmy-nominated 11-part docu-series explores life on Earth and its ability to adapt amid the planet’s environmental changes.

Life looks into the wonderful and bizarre evolutionary process that the species have to undergo in order to survive on their respective corners of the planet. This BBC series successfully covers the biome and landmass on the planet that it is being likened to the prequel to Planet Earth.

The show took more than four years in the making, filming over 3,000 days around the world. In this nature documentary, viewers will witness the myriad ways millions of plants and animal species have adapted, thrived, and survived in evolving environments.

20The Tigers Of Scotland

The Tigers of Scotland

The Tigers of Scotland is a feature-length documentary film that focuses on Scottish Wildcats. It aims to raise awareness of viewers about incredibly cute and rare wild cats. Most people believe that tigers are the preserves of Africa or India.

However, Scotland has a feline species that are now critically endangered and on the brink of extinction, but not only that, though. The country’s native wild cats are also facing other threats brought by humans.

The Tigers of Scotland was released in 2017.

21Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs is an Emmy-winning documentary that was issued in 1999. The series takes the audiences back to the Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Triassic period. You get to have a look at the world through the eyes of particular herds and individual dinosaurs.

The show succeeded in its attempt to recreate and bring the dinosaurs to life using CGI. Narrated by actor and filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, Walking with Dinosaurs was definitely cutting edge when it premiered two decades ago in 1999.

In this day and age, however, the documentary’s special CGI effects now appear to be quite dated.


Natural Curiosities

If you are one of those who love legendary naturalist David Attenborough and his body of work will definitely love Nature Curiosities. In fact, Attenborough has been well-known for his involvement in several masterpieces of nature documentaries ever created in history.

It may be true that nature can be weird, and this nature documentary delightfully highlights all that. The audiences will truly feel privileged to witness and learn from Attenborough’s intricate selection of natural curiosities and occurrences.

Natural Curiosities explores a host of the extremely surprising and mind-boggling behavior in nature. It further shows the process that animals develop these habits and the reason behind such habits.

The film follows Attenborough’s journey across the world where he visits some of his personally chosen natural peculiarities. The famous wildlife expert is taking the viewers with him as he and his team look into talented insects, armored animals, and a lot more.

23Columbia: Wild Magic

Columbia: Wild Magic

Columbia: Wild Magic is a nature documentary feature that showcases the rich diversity of this beautiful country in Latin America. It also tackles the fragile ecosystem as well as the significance of conservation of the beauty of nature.

In Columbia: Wild Magic, you will take a tedious journey across biomes of the northernmost part of South America. No stone is left unturned as this documentary film captures the country’s landscape, ranging from the Amazon forests down to the coastlines of the Caribbean and the vast desert in front of camera’s lens.

24Encounters At The End Of The World

Encounters At The End Of The World

Encounters at the End of the World is a breathtaking documentary that offers a view of Antartica, Earth’s southernmost continent that only few can likely see in real life. This documentary shows a touching study of the human mind amid the coldest, windiest, and driest landscape.

Encounters at the End of the World was filmed by German director Werner Herzog who is also the narrator and travel guide to Antartica. Herzog is also known as a legendary voice in the nature documentary genre.

In this film, he documents his visit to the Mcmurdo Station, the largest research station on the continent of Antarctica. Herzog further looks into the psyche of the scientists who have been working there.

It appears that although Antartica is an extremely remote place, intrepid explorers travel there to uncover the secrets of the coldest continent in the world.

This nature documentary feature provides a peek at a span of an almost uninhabited, ice-covered landmass. The place is as deadly as it is beautiful.

Encounters at the End of the World is a must-watch documentary for fans who want to educate themselves about this frozen terrain on the planet.

25Hidden Kingdoms

Hidden Kingdoms

Hidden Kingdoms is a playful documentary series that tells the tale of life tiny living creatures. It is a three-part series that uses cutting-edge camera technology.

This nature documentary follows tiny insects, rodents, and other little species with the help of some cool camera tricks and cinematic angles. The audiences will gain insight as to how the shots were filmed, mixed with some whimsical and technical brilliance.

Some critics feel that the use of sounds is absurd and slammed the production team for it. The series, however, does not disappoint despite the fun sounds, especially if viewers would just take it lightly.

This one-of-a-kind nature documentary gives the audiences a look at animals’ experiences in their kind of world from their own point of view.

In Hidden Kingdoms, nature enthusiasts will be able to open their eyes to the worlds as seen through the eyes of tiny animals and insects, i.e. chipmunk and a Japanese rhinoceros beetle.

As the show capitalizes on its use of amazing camera technology, Hidden Kingdoms offers footages anyone thinks is not possible.

26Chasing Coral

Chasing Coral

Chasing Coral is a nature documentary feature released in 2017. This film is helmed by Jeff Orlowski, the man who was behind the director’s chair for Chasing Ice, which was out in 2012. After a span of five years, Orlowski shifts his focus from the artic to the ocean.

Chasing Coral documents coral bleaching and how the carbon emissions and pesticides destroy the environment, particularly the reefs. Similar to other nature documentary features included in this Netflix guide, this film raises awareness of people in regard to the material and measurable impacts of global warming.

According to critics, Chasing Coral delights the audiences with a captivating view of the beauty of some of the Earth’s most fascinating natural wonders. In addition to that, however, it delivers a serious warning about their destruction in the future if not acted upon.

13 Best Post-Apocalyptic Movies To Stream On Netflix Now

There’s an innate horror in seeing what the world might look like after it’s put through the wringer. There’s an infinite list of unimaginable tragedies that could assault civilization as we know it — nuclear crises, cold wars, and perhaps even general moral decline, are just a few.

Watching post-apocalyptic films, however, is also somewhat addicting. Glimpsing at imagined ruins might not seem healthy at first, but it might actually be a healthy practice as it allows us to see what could be, then feel emboldened to avoid a descent toward such bleak trajectories. The world is already brimming with issues as it is, why up the ante and portray it as a crumbling, demolished wasteland?

Black Mirror, a series on Netflix, on the one hand, isn’t exclusively post-apocalyptic in the sense of genre, but its explorations of futures that either overlap with ours or just inches beyond the threshold of our addiction with technology is a masterful. Fiction has many jobs, one of which is to allow us to peek into the aftermath of our present actions.

In that sense, post-apocalyptic movies aren’t mere catastrophic portraits, the main value of which depends largely on shock and agitation. These films are in and of themselves a reflection of our panic and anxiety. Below is a list of the best post-apocalyptic movies content available on Netflix as of this writing. They’re gritty, overtly cynical, and at times even overwrought with the burdens of ideology. Eye-opening is not a phrase that should be used lightly, especially in the company of art, but as far as this list is concerned, there might be a few here deserving to be called as such.

Of course, don’t forget that art is never a messiah; its job isn’t to incite or inspire change. Art is merely the expression of thought put to images, movement, sounds, and other forms of stimulation. Whether or not your point of view on something changes after consuming art largely depends on you. But make sure to give these films a try. If anything, they’ll make your Friday nights more interesting and give you something to mull over throughout the weekend.

1Bird Box

Bird Box

Bird Box is your classic post-apocalyptic fare: there’s a terrible, terrible tragedy, people are dying, an unseen evil is ravaging the citadels of civilization, and it’s up to a ragtag crew of people to survive the bleakness of this new world.

Even still, the way Bird Box tells its story, or more specifically, drops its characters in an almost impossible world, is as exhilarating as it is totally terrifying. When an invisible malevolent supernatural entities start causing unimaginable horror to anyone who looks at them (when they see it, people kill themselves out of sheer terror), Malorie charts a tumultuous journey with her two children down a treacherous river to the only place where hope might wait. But to survive that trip, they must undertake the journey completely blindfolded.

Academy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock shines here as a mother who has to protect her children at all cost and, at one point, make the toughest decision she’ll ever have to in her life. Trevante Rhodes and Sarah Paulson also take turns in making the story more taut and compelling as Malorie’s husband and sister, respectively.

In all Bird Box might rely on too much tropes to get its story across, but it’s saved by very strong performances from the diverse cast and a decent, if a bit predictable ending.

Director: Susanne Bier – Screenplay: Eric Heisserer – Cast: Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich – Run Time: 2h 04m



When a working class father of the future gets recurring dreams of destruction by a mysterious force, it slowly eats at him, and his relationship with his family, as the dream gets more frequent. Shortly thereafter, he realizes that they may be these nightmares may be offering a morsel of truth. As a relentless alien attack begins to destroy the planet, he must do everything to protect his family. All the while uncovering who he might truly be.

Extinction has the makings of a blockbuster in its DNA. Too bad it wasn’t received that well by critics. Still, there’s something worth watching here, and not just its fun and wacky stylistic choices that recall B-Movies. It’s also one of the first few films Netflix produced, and you can see the streaming service is getting better at choosing which projects to fund. Extinction is, at best, a great concept that comes to be mangled at some point during the arduous, exhausting execution.

So why include it here then? Well, we can’t deny how promising its premise is, and we tend to merit a film not just by looking at it as a whole but by also dissecting its parts and judging those individually and seeing if there’s something worthy of discussion. Extinction has those aplenty. It’s just unfortunate it doesn’t tie all those together neatly.

Director: Ben Young – Screenplay: Spenser Cohen, Brad Kane, Spenser Cohen – Cast: Michael Peña, Lizzy Caplan, Amelia Crouch – Run Time: 1h 35m



Drop everything right now and load up Automata — it’ll be one of the most visually striking films you see this year. In this story, we’re still on Earth, but it’s the future, and the ecosystem is on the verge of collapsing.

Man-made robots are roaming the city to protect what humans remain. But when a robot overrides the program commanding him to protect humans, ROC Robotics insurance agent Jacq Vaucan is assigned to investigate what caused the robot to shift gears and promptly eliminate it. But he discovers something far more pernicious that threatens the future of humanity.

The themes explored here aren’t new at all. The original Blade Runner grapples with similar territory, asking important questions about the overlap between sentience, morality, and humanity. What makes Automata different is its stunning cinematography, astonishing visual splendor, and gob-smacking eyecandy. It is simply one of the most beautiful films we’ve seen: every frame sizzles, every scene decorated lavishly.

It’s heavy, too, on the ideas. We’re a bit conflicted on how it treats these ideas, though, and we’re not entirely convinced on the execution. Still, by looks alone, this is worth the couple of hours.

Director: Gabe Ibáñez – Screenplay: Gabe Ibáñez, Igor Legarreta, Javier Sánchez Donate – Cast: Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Dylan McDermott – Run Time: 1h 49m

4The Last Boy

The Last Boy

In The Last Boy, a dying mother sends her young son on a journey to a place where wishes are granted. This no ordinary sci-fi fodder, though — inspired by 13th Century Sufi Mystic and Poet Rumi, the film evinces an ethereal quality that in many respects act as a counterpoint to the conventions of typical sci-fi fare. Here, nothing is rushed or glossed over: no concept is rendered over-simplistically, nor are characters painted in broad, caricaturish strokes to act as anchors for the plot.

That’s because The Last Boy isn’t a big-budget film, and that financial restraint sometimes shows. But only in the sense that there’s no bombastic spectacles every three seconds, nor are there any too overtly lavish sets. With those distractions off the frame we are treated instead to a complex, layered story that starts very, very strong. The film uses the remaining time to fill in the gaps as we go along. This is a risky plot device: when done right, it can hook you immediately and keep you on the edge of your seat. When misfired, it can make a film an utterly dull experience. Thankfully, The Last Boy does it right. Well, mostly. It’s not a perfect film by any stretch of the imagination, but it shoots and it scores more than it misses.

Director: Perry Bhandal – Screenplay: Perry Bhandal – Cast: Luke Goss, Flynn Allen, Peter Guinness – Run Time: 1h 27m

5Turbo Kid

Turbo Kid

Turbo Kid is a rare gem, and best experienced having no knowledge of its story whatsoever. But if you insist, here’s the bare necessity we’re willing to share: The year is 1997. Yet it’s not the 1997 we know — it’s a post-apocalyptic 1997, in all its retro-futurism and nostalgia. Though the milieu nears the aughts, the film calls back to the action-adventure movies popular during the ‘80s. We follow an orphaned teenager who sets off on a journey to save his female-robot companion from the hands of an evil warlord, who in turn controls the only water supply.

That’s all we’re willing to share. But trust us when we say you’re going to like this very much, especially if you’re fond of the ‘80s aesthetic. Turbo Kid is goofy, fast-paced, and at times bordering on juvenile, but that, in our opinion, is where the secret to its charm lies. It’s really got nothing to say about childhood that hasn’t already been said before. The production value is questionable. It’s like Mad Max: Fury Road but the producers pulled the budget mere moments before filming. If you like high-spectacle visuals, you won’t have much of a good time with this. But for something homespun, this kills it. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny the sheet passion embedded in every frame of this little gem.

Director: François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell – Screenplay: Anouk Whissell, François Simard, Yoann-Karl Whissell – Cast: Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside – Run Time: 1h 33m

6V For Vendetta

V For Vendetta

Chances are you’ve stumbled upon V For Vendetta once or twice before, as it’s one of the more popular entries in this list. It’s famous for having striking visuals and a thought-provoking story, on top of, let’s not forget, truly iconic set pieces, which will remain burned in pop culture memory forever.

Based on the graphic novel by iconic Alan Moore, V For Vendetta is set in an alternate version of Britain where a corrupt government has risen to complete epower. When a young woman runs into a secret police force, she is rescued by a vigilante named V, in cape and mask, who’s particularly skilled in combat. V, we’ll soon learn, is the embodiment of total rebellion, which obviously is a rarity in the state of government Britain is in. This young woman becomes V’s unlikely ally, made aware of the transgressions of her society and how she contributes to perpetuate its totalitarian grip.

If you don’t like mixing politics with art, skip this. But here’s a dirty secret: every art is a piece of politics, whether you like it or not. This one’s just not apologizing for it. The Wachowskis (The Matrix, Sense8) paint a stirring picture of resistance in a world where it’s the most dangerous commodity. The result is an exhilarating portrait of a world very much near ours, given recent events.

Director: James McTeigue – Screenplay: Lilly Wachowski, Lana Wachowski – Cast: Hugo Weaving, Natalie Portman, Rupert Graves – Run Time: 2h 12m

7Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines

What if entire cities were alive? That’s the premise of Mortal Engines, about a post-apocalyptic world in which entire cities now live on top of gigantic mechanical robots. The steampunk-inspired source material comes care of Philip Reeve, who wrote the first book in 2001. Set in London, the film looks at a mobilized version of civilization destroyed by a cataclysmic event, and follows people who take up the impossible task of trying to stop London (now a giant predator city on wheels) from devouring everything it comes across.

As you can see, Mortal Engines is a not-too-subtle dig on the perils of ownership and man’s unending hunger for triumph, whomever he may stomp on while doing so be damned. Mortal Engines serves up a convoluted plot, and its characters are lack the bite that made the original so brutal yet equal parts endearing. Still, we actually find this adaptation to be vastly underrated. For one, it’s an absolutely masterful new addition to the thin pantheon of post-apocalyptic content involving giant robots. Yes, that’s a thing. But ultimately, it’s a pretty powerful statement on the woes of being an outcast.

It’s Mad Max on steroids. But those steroids were injected in the wrong place. So you get a beastly, formidable monster that’s still enjoyable but is highly deformed and alien. Still worth a watch, though.

Director: Christian Rivers – Screenplay: Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson – Cast: Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Hugo Weaving – Run Time: 2h 08m

8The Cloverfield Paradox

The Cloverfield Paradox

On its own, The Cloverfield Paradox is an ambitious, blistering sci-fi fare with a compelling story and an amazing cast. As the new entry in the Cloverfield series of films, however, it’s less endearing.

The story focuses on a group of scientific researchers on a space station aiming to harness a new energy source called God Particle. But they accomplish something far more sinister. It’s best if you experience the story on your own because, despite its flaws, The Cloverfield Paradox is still one of the better attempts at a realized post-apocalyptic world.

The biggest problem with this film is exposition. In screenwriting lingo, exposition means telling the audience very technical information that’s important towards understanding the plot better. This film isn’t full of it — it’s drowning in it. This is an experience that won’t sit well with most people. But if you like smart scientists throwing out jargon, you’ll like The Cloverfield Paradox. In all, though, this is but a tiny blemish. There’s something human about this film at the end of the day. It’s just sad that it seems to have been assembled rather haphazardly.

What we’re saying is: it’s not Arrival. That film was based on a short story that delved into highly complex concepts deemed untranslatable onscreen, but it managed to make it work without feeling like an entire course on The Path of Least Resistance. But you should watch it — it’s good.

Director: Julius Onah – Screenplay: Oren Uziel, Doug Jung – Cast: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl – Run Time: 1h 42m

9How It Ends

How It Ends

Tells the story of a mysterious apocalypse that causes the spread of misinformation and violence. We follow a man and his estranged father-in-law as they race across the country to save the life of his pregnant wife.

How It Ends is worth a watch, to be sure. But it has a lot of problems. Bear in mind that we included it here because it’s still got some pretty hefty ideas worth exploring. Overall, though, watching it feels like a chore. If you like a challenge, you’ll come to appreciate that heft. At best, it’s an effective thriller that’s gets juicer and more compelling the more it’s allowed to let on. But here’s the trouble with stories about cataclysm: you have to deliver a great ending. An ending so absurd so to be perfect and the only ending that could have warranted such a lofty premise.

Does How It Ends deliver in this regard? Well, there’s no single answer to that. It gallops gleefully and reaches some heights, but there are also times when it stumbles, and in some instances miserably so. But again, it has its moments, and those moments, in our opinion, make this film worth watching.

Director: David M. Rosenthal – Screenplay: Brooks McLaren – Cast: Theo James, Kat Graham, Nancy Sorel – Run Time: 1h 53m

10I Think We’re Alone Now

I Think We’re Alone Now

Del, played by Peter Dinklage, is the star of I Think We’re Alone now, a movie about a lonely person navigating the world after the human race has been wiped out completely. He spends his days in a small, empty town, content in his solace and the utopia he’s carved out for himself.

Of course, there would be no compelling movie if we’re just going to watch him enjoy his alone time (auteurs would disagree). So comes Grace, played by Elle Fanning, ann interloper whose motives and background we’re not so clear on. What do you do when it’s the end of the world and someone still manages to annoy the heck out of you?

That phrasing makes this film sound like a comedy, but it’s not, really. Dinklage and Fanning are great at playing people who face the end of the world. We’re not going to share much lest we spoil important parts of the story, but we’re going out on a limb to say that this is a pretty simple story with a bonkers plot twist. We’re divided on the subject of out-of-left-field plot twists. But perhaps it’s common wisdom that a great plot twist should serve the narrative, not derail it. This is kind of does both. Hate it or love it, it’s bound to be something memorable purely for that twist near the end.

Director: Reed Morano – Screenplay: Mike Makowsky – Cast: Peter Dinklage, Elle Fanning, Charlotte Gainsbourg – Run Time: 1h 33m



Set in a post-cataclysmic Earth, Sam, played by Margaret Qualley, is one of the last remaining survivors of this world. She’s a young scientist dedicated to finding new methods for humans to adapt and survive instead of abandoning their home completely.

Everything changes when Micah, played by Anthony Mackie, another survivor, arrives. With final shuttle scheduled to leave Earth en route to a distant colony, Sam must decide whether to take the journey to safety or stay on Earth. As typical of most sci-fi films, IO is riddled with scientific inaccuracies. Unlike those, however, the sheer amount of them amazingly doesn’t take a toll on the potential of enjoying this simple heartfelt portrait of loving Earth despite the impossible odds.

If you’re a teenager and love dystopian tales, you’re going to find plenty of elements here that are delightful and significant without being too pandering. Critics didn’t really take this well, as it’s currently sitting at Rotten Tomatoes with a 29% rating. But trust us when we say that something (plenty of things, actually) work well here, even if they’re not as coherently tied by the time the credits roll as they could be.

Sometimes IO feels more interested in flashy displays of human resilience than the actual people that trigger it. That’s a minor flaw, though, and doesn’t take away from the potency of ideas presented here.

Director: Jonathan Helpert – Screenplay: Clay Jeter, Charles Spano, Will Basanta – Cast: Margaret Qualley, Anthony Mackie, Danny Huston – Run Time: 1h 36m



The only Japanese film in this list (there are a lot of great choices; sadly they’re not available on Netflix as of this writing), Blame! is an excellent CGI animated sci-fi film set in the distant technological future where civilization has reached its ultimate Net-based form. A previous “infection” has caused automated systems to malfunction, causing a multi-leveled structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions.

Humanity shortly loses access to the city’s controls, and comes to be hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard.

We’re inclined to share more, but we’re going to do you a disservice by explaining the plot further. The good thing is you’re in for a treat if you jump headfirst and watch Blame! with as little knowledge as possible beforehand. The film is not only on its own a striking meditation on the merits and demerits of super advanced technology, it’s also a masterful and faithful adaptation of the iconic manga.

Filled with multi-dimensional characters, a plot that isn’t rushed, and concepts that the film gives time to fully simmer, Blame! is an example of a post-apocalyptic film done right — that is, given enough breathing room to really hash out its ideas instead of suffocating them with unnecessary tropes. We’re going to end this with a hot take: the Japanese really know how to make cinema.

Director: Hiroyuki Seshita – Screenplay: Sadayuki Murai, Tsutomu Nihei – Cast: Takahiro Sakurai, Kana Hanazawa, Sora Amamiya – Run Time: 1h 46m



One of Netflix’s more accomplished original films, Cargo is set in rural Australia in the aftermath of a hostile pandemic. A father, who’s infected, is desperate to find a new home for his infant child. And not just a home, too — he must find a means to protect her from himself.

Cargo is supplied with powerful performances from a star-studded cast. But what really separates Cargo from the films already mentioned is that it really cares about people and humanity. It doesn’t exchange them for cathartic storytelling or exploits them for dramatized, haphazard explorations of trauma. Instead, it’s passionate, sincere, and very forthcoming. And this kind of fortitude is what’s lacking in most post-apocalyptic films in recent years.

Children of Men, released in 2006, is a fine example of a dystopian film that cares about its characters more than it cares to present the horrors of the new world in which it’s set. Cargo is a far cry from the cinematic brilliance of Children of Men, but it’s not difficult to think that they swim in the same gene pool. As such, Cargo transcends its underpinnings — hackneyed genre tropes are replaced in favor of a more delicate, fragile tale of human connection and family. Oh, and bonus: It’s also probably one of the finest, most thematically accomplished zombie movies ever made. George A. Romero himself would be so, so proud.

Best Netflix Animated Series That Are Worth Your Time


Dischenmant’s art style is familiar because it was created by none other than Matt Gorening, legendary artist behind The Simpsons. The latter show might have lost its original charm and insight of the modern American household, but Disenchantment puts Groening in uncharted territory.

Here we are whisked away to the downtrodden medieval kingdom of Dreamland, following the various adventures of Bean, a young, alcoholic princess; Elfo, her sharp-mouthed elf companion; and Luci, her personal demon. They set off to a grand, epic adventure where they encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and of course, lots and lots of foolish humans.

Disenchantment is devoid of the magical touch that made The Simpsons such an essential portrait of suburban existence. Still, it’s worth watching because you’ll find flecks of Groening’s signature humor here. The story is at times thin yet manages to be engaging occasionally, and there’s plenty of laughs to be had as the plot progresses.

The show is highly different from Groening’s broader body of work, though it’s strikingly familiar in both look and feel. It’s not exactly what you’d call a great animated show, and it’s certainly far from the creator’s most inspired masterstrokes. But there’s something to be said about the show’s careful, worldbuilding, which is its secret trump card: this medieval setting incites more delights than it has any right to do, providing a robust milieu for our unlikely crew of rebels.

You’ll find it at times too dull or downright unfunny. Predictable at certain moments, too. Which is rather unfortunate. It’s a pleasant show that’s got plenty of smart visual gags, and it’s a must-not-miss for fans of Groening’s work, at least. The first season is streaming now. A second one is currently in development and scheduled to debut sometime this year.

Top 10 Liam Neeson Movies to Watch

Liam Neeson is easily one of the most-renowned actors in film history, being most recognized for his performances in action flicks and other related genres. His brooding but charismatic approach makes him a much-wanted person for many performances, whether they decide to use him properly or not (I’m looking at you, Battleship).

However, every actor has at least one or two movies that just don’t work for them, so we don’t hold those against old Liam. Besides, he’s had way more successes than failures, and we love him for it. So without further ado, here are the top ten best movies by Liam Neeson. Due to old Liam’s large portfolio of filmography, this is simply a matter of personal opinion.

10. Non-Stop

[embedded content]

This isn’t his most recognizable film by any means. As a suspense thriller, it was merely okay. However, with Liam Neeson as the lead role, he was hands down the most interesting part of the entire story. Playing a hardened air marshal who struggles with smoking and alcoholism, you know you’re in for a treat this time. Having to overcome the ghosts in his closet and lies spread against him, Neeson must push through all of the rumors and do what is necessary to save the plane and everyone on it. Is it a great film? No. Is Liam Neeson great? Absolutely.

9. Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

[embedded content]

Again, not the greatest film ever. It’s arguably the worst film in the entire saga (Jar Jar, all I’m going to say). That didn’t stop Liam Neeson being the most interesting character on screen though. Playing the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s mentor, Qui Gon Jinn, Liam does a great job being a rebellious jedi of sorts. No matter what he was told, whether by good or evil, he did merely what he thought was right. Now it was technically his fault that Anakin was given the skills he needed to become Darth Vader, but it was also him that figured out to have his spirit live on in the force after he died. If only he lived to see Revenge of the Sith, the outcome might’ve played a little bit differently.

8. Michael Collins

[embedded content]

Now we’re starting to get into better films. Michael Collins is a historical tale about a man with the same name who was a well-known patriot during the Irish Civil War. Neeson was the perfect choice for this role, because not only did he portray someone who is ready to die for his home, but he’s also Irish himself. At the end of the film, however, Neeson passes away, but that doesn’t mean his performance is lost in history. It makes me want to see more of him in historical fiction in the future.

7. Five Minutes of Heaven

[embedded content]

Remember everything I just said about Michael Collins? Think of the exact opposite, and you have every reason why Neeson’s performance in Five Minutes of Heaven was phenomenal. Neeson is now against Ireland and kills the main character’s (Joe Griffin) brother in front of him. Thirty years pass, the world is at peace, and Griffin is scheduled to meet Neeson’s character on national television. The only problem is that Griffin intends on getting revenge on his brother by killing Neeson. Naturally, Neeson does a great job of adding humanity to a killer and delving into the moral ambiguity of a political divide. There really isn’t anyone better they could’ve had for the role.

6. The A Team (2010)

[embedded content]

It was only a matter of time before we see this mesh of testosterone on the big screen again. This time around, Neeson plays colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, considered to be the leader of the titular team. Fortunately, Neeson captures very well a unique charisma and sense of authority that you’d expect someone from the A Team to have. While a forgettable film at best, Neeson’s performance was top notch.

5. Kinsey

[embedded content]

This is another one of Liam Neeson’s “real-life roles” In this film, he plays Alfred Charles Kinsey, who specialized in sexology. He goes on a quest to figure out sexual behavior in men to better understand how they work by getting individual information from a wide scope of males. You can imagine the controversy this would induce, and Neeson handles it very well. He makes us believe that Kinsey is an intelligent man just looking for answers and understanding. Nothing more, nothing less.

4. Batman Begins

[embedded content]

While the best villain of the Nolanverse award goes to Heath Ledger for his portrayal of the Joker, there is no doubt that Liam Neeson’s performance as Ra’s al Ghul was the most memorable we’ve ever had (sorry Arrow fans). When exploring the history of Bruce Wayne in great detail, we also get a better sense of why Ra’s does what he does. Then he becomes a terrifying presence once he makes his way to Gotham. After all, anybody who is willing to look Batman in the eye, burn his house down, and destroy his city has a lot of guts. And Neeson plays it very well.

3. The Grey

[embedded content]

This is a chilling, suspenseful, and frightening film. Stuck in the frozen tundra and dealing with a pack of wolves, the question is constantly being asked, “Will he survive?” Neeson plays this lone character in spades. He makes us feel as if we were really there, and we get a better sense of what it would really be like to be stranded in such an unforgiving part of the world. Hint: I never want to go there.

2. Schindler’s List

[embedded content]

This old tale of a man saving Jews from Nazi imprisonment is Neeson’s best historical film to date. Even though he saves so many Jews, we still find him breaking down in a puddle of tears at the end of it all because he knew he could’ve saved more. His performance was outstanding as a man who knew that the Germans were wrong. He gave so many people a second chance at life, and our hearts a second chance at feeling something.

1. Taken

[embedded content]

This is probably Liam Neeson’s best known film, and for good reason too. This is what set him as an incredible action star. A man trying to save his daughter seems like a simple plot, but there is so much depth in Neeson’s character that it’s worth watching over and over again. Not to mention we get great lines like, “I will find you and I will kill you.” Yes, there is no one who can stare death in the eye quite like Liam Neeson. This is why Taken stands as the best of all of the Liam Neeson movies.

What are you thoughts? Which film do you think had the best performance by Liam Neeson? Let us know down in the comments!

Netflix For Foodies: Movies And Shows For All You Foodies Out There

Feed the Beast

This crime drama might be sitting with a 23% rating over at Rotten Tomatoes, but we promise it’s a worthwhile watch, still. Adapted from an original series in Denmark called Bankerot, the show is about Tommy Moran and Dion Patras, two friends on the brink of losing everything. Tommy and Dion are like brothers, and although each have their own share of downswings, these two dream one day of being able to open an upscale Greek restaurant.

Together, they set off an insane endeavor as they navigate the cut-throat restaurant world of New York, not to mention its criminal underbelly, filled to the brim with corrupt officials, petty thieves, and hostile mobsters.

It’s clear Feed the Beast isn’t a show that’s exclusively about food. Rather, it’s about chasing a dream face-to-face the grueling, almost unforgiving pursuit of opening up a place in New York City, the place of endless opportunity. In essence, it’s about chasing your dreams and the hangups and missteps you make toward that journey.

Truth be told, this is no Mad Men or Breaking Bad. It appears AMC’s golden days of television are now far behind it, but Feed the Beast is still something you should see. For the performances alone, this is a 10-episode run. David Schwimmer, particularly, shines as his character, amazingly absent of any imprint from his Friends days.

The screenplay reclines too comfortably on tropes for most of the show’s run, and truth be told, the writers could have polished their drafts a bit more before hitting record. What a shame, though, considering Clyde Phillips got this thing off the ground, and he made phenomenal hits like Nurse Jackie and Dexter.

Episodes That Deserve Special Mention: Father of the Year, Screw You, Randy, Secret Sauce, Be My Baby, Fire

Director: Steve Shill, Jon S. Bair, Dan Attias, and more – Screenplay: Clyde Phillips, David Babcock, Liz Sagal, and more – Cast:Run Time: 46 mins per episode
