    “Why would you put two races in the same country and expect them to get along” that’s what the guy says in the gang documentary... wtf.
    We are one race... HUMAN! Why can’t people see this, we all breath/eat/sleep and we all bleed red blood. Period! It doesn’t matter what nationality you are, we are human beings.

    None of these movies are in my Netflix. 85% are Asian tv shows and movies.. I don't like reading subs. Netflix in my country sucks bigtime!!!

    No one talks about Netflix because it's no good. Probably because the Obamas work there. That says it all.

    Cartel Land is good, and quite unsettling due to the political climate going into 2019.
    Shimmer Lake looks to be some good escapism.

    I've never liked Rami Malek. I always have this feeling that they couldn't hire the 1st choice and had to settle with Malek. Mediocre.

    they need to get rid of the algorithms. i like many different types of movies, shows and docs but the algorithm limits my choices and makes it harder to find great content.

      Jay Brown , It's looked like the BEST on the list. I'm going to purchase the DVD. The gift was good, but it is make believe. *Sometimes the best & craziest shit is REALITY!*
      I WON'T be subscribing to Netflix is because of the Chimpbamas hold in it to push out anti America & pro new world order, lgbt & child pedophilia propaganda through films.

  • DamTheKid
    DamTheKid 9 months ago

    People are having a hard time finding them because they all have two stars (and in the case of two movies two and a half stars) or less so they are rated as bad movies. Thumbs up/down system sucks real bad, now errant ratings have gone rampant and these kinds of head scratching scenarios where game changing movies are getting a C or D grade. Good video

      Douglas Stormborn netflicks is ignoring conservatives wanting them to remive a film pushing child pornography. They haven't even commented on it. *The New World Order wants to legalize pedophilia.*

  • ClausenLT

    "The Gift"...yeah pretty freakin creepy since I got an anonymous letter from someone in my past (30 years ago), when I was like 17, telling me I reminded them of "Simon". And they "hoped I'd matured"...
    I'm thinking..."yeah I was clearly right about you whoever you are."

    • Patriot Jefferson
      Patriot Jefferson 9 months ago +1

      ClausenLT , that is creepy. I got a "secret admirer" note on my front door once. I thought it was flattering until my DOG was STOLEN! When I had told people about the note they said "that's really creepy you have a stalker!" I didn't realize it until I heard put bluntly that way! Films always romanticize stuff like this. I had thought the person that left the note must of recognized my truck & pulled over to leave a flattering note in my front door. Teality is they must have been following me. I've realized that *I'm extremely naive to bad people.* The saying *it takes one to know one* rings true & I DON'T identify with what I'm NOT & that it can put naive people in a dangerous situtation. I bought a gun & I've moved.

    A lot of these movies have pretty low scores on imdb so it is no wonder no one is talking about them lol. That being said, I have watched "the gift" and must admit it was a pretty decent watch...but it had a pretty decent score as there is that.

    I'm pretty sure if you spoke to the gangsters they would be just as if not more racist. But hey, paint the people defending themselves from Scicario level gangsters as racists eh.

    • Marco Della Torre
      Marco Della Torre 4 months ago

      yeah, the best way to defend your land from a rich-beyond-imagination narc lord is to shoot a few poor peoplke in search from salvation from said narc lord. Shit I'm talking to pepople that said "Hillary is a liar" then proceeded to vote the greatest crook in the land of the "free"... Or should I say "fee", since helping your fellow men does not seem to be a thing there? But hey, christians!

      Patriot Jefferson 9 months ago +1

      TheWalkingNoob they aren't racist, just have COMMON SENSE. *Labeling honest people as racists is to shame people from speaking up about the dangers of LEGAL IMMIGRATION & UNSECURED BOARDERS. Our freedoms & country is being destroyed from the INSIDE of America!*

    Rami Malek had a notable performance in 'Buster Mal's Heart', however the movie was quite predictable and nothing of great value happens until the end, of which is the predictable part. It doesn't go into great depth about the convoluted parts nor the initialisation of the Y2K sub-narrative and instead emphasizes on the mundane and arbitrary pieces of the plot that does not particularly delve the story any deeper.
    To sum it up it's as if you are watching a relationship drama written by an obsessive conspiracy theorist who is not subtle at all. At the movies end, instead of wanting more or trying to develop an understanding, you are wondering what happened without wanting to know why.

    Small Crimes+1, watched it a few days ago... the end was surprising even though I knew what was gonna happen when the character came into the scene. Shimmer Lake, Fury of patient Man and Bad Day for the Cut were all great suspense movies. Cartel land and Icarus were both great and saddening docus.

    With all due respect, before you call the Americans "Racist" you might want to walk a 100 miles in their shoes. They are trying to stop some of the vilest individuals there are.
    From murdering, trafficking in women, and Drugs they may have earned the right to be pissed off and bitter.
