I know I’m very late to the party but I’ve just signed up to Netflix as I’m currently feeling very sorry for myself with a bad throat infection and a heavy painful period and thought i’d treat myself to a rare day on the sofa.

Please recommend me some of your favourite films on there.

My top genres are:
Disaster movies (Day After Tomorrow type stuff)
Romantic comedy

Thank you

The fundamentals of caring

Nothing to Hide is great. At a dinner party people decide to unlock and answer their phones so that all can hear. Each call is more explosive than the previous and secrets come out.

Then haunting of Hill house is a great series.

Yes, Cargo is brilliant. Also Hush.

FranKatzenjammer Mon 10-Dec-18 13:47:39

The Road is another one you might like, if you haven't already seen it.

Limitless is great

Whoseranium Mon 10-Dec-18 13:52:34

Annihilation is absolutely brilliant.

The Babysitter is a lot of fun.

I've not watched them yet but Gerald's Game and 1922 are both supposed to be really good.

Not a movie but a series or two...

The sinner

HappyPunky Mon 10-Dec-18 13:57:23

It's not a film but you might like Stranger Things.

Also Crazy Ex Girlfriend is very good I'm binging that at the moment but it's very long.

Also try Inside number 9 it's made by two of the league of gentlemen.

You might like Black Mirror too, that's Charlie Brooker, both of them are quite short per series.

I don't watch many films because there are so many excellent series on there.

I would second Black mirror too actually.
Very dark and clever.

Based on your interest in horror I'd go for

Cabin in the Woods
Tucker & Dale vs Evil
From Dusk til Dawn
American Psycho
The Collector
The Wailing (Korean thriller)
Office (Korean horror)

TheLovleyChebbyMcGee Mon 10-Dec-18 14:04:36

Yes to Mind Hunter, Dale and tucker v evil, Stranger things and Black Mirror.

I'd also add in The Autopsy of Jane Doe and American horror story.

I'm a bit late to the party too, so also following this thread for the replies. I enjoyed the good girls, the alienst, the haunting at hill house and the mist, Safe and travellers. I found mind hunter good but a bit slow. I haven't watched many movies on it.

On recommendation from florentina1, we watched Nothing to hide and it was extremely good. THANK YOU

Ooooh just watched Nothing to Hide too. It was very good albeit a bit depressing. I mean all that money and no happiness.

TanteRose Fri 04-Jan-19 18:39:41

Calibre is really really good - I can't recommend it highly enough. And it fits your criteria very well smile

The Last Kingdom

Xiaoxiong Fri 04-Jan-19 18:54:42

The chilling adventures of Sabrina or whatever it's called is surprisingly horror movie-esque considering it's about a teenage witch. Very easy watching grin

IfyouseeRitaMoreno Fri 04-Jan-19 20:19:39

Oh bloody hell, also just watched The Fundamentals of Caring. 20 minutes in and I was crying like a baby!

Thanks for the recommendations. I’m lying here sick and am bored out of my mind!

The road

Big Little Lies. If nothing else the theme tune is gorgeous.
