Thank you all for the suggestions.
Everytime I feel like watching a movie, this is the thread I come to first, so I appreciate all your valueable inputs.

Recently I watched on Netflix 'Killing of sacred deer"  what a weird movie, talk about depressing but apparently its based on greek mythology which i won't give away the premise for anyone who might watch.  The acting was sublime but the whole atmosphere was so dark.
Loved "Django Unchained" but hated "The hateful eight"  but i guess every director can have a movie that sucks lol  Although i do love majority of Tarantino's movies.

I did finish watching 'Tiger King' and Missy was right, that was one crazy rollercoaster of jaw dropping palm to face moments of unbelievably outrageous lives of big cat people.  I think they all need to go to jail including the woman.

on Amazon...well i tried watching an episode of Fleabag ..idk it seems all about sex, sex, lusting more of sex and when she did have sex, she was thinking of sex while sex and then after sex, more of the sex lol
If anyone can tell me that it will get better than the 'sex' maybe i'll give it another go

Drop everything and go to amazonprime (if you do have it) and watch the movie 'The Goldfinch" for free at the moment.
Oh emm gee, what an amazing movie, what an amazing story, the characters, the actors, the acting, the unfolding, the twists....i had to text Soul cause i was so taken and he was right there to affirm the shocking twist  lol
I had seen the book on top of NY charts for weeks way back..but never read the book.  So i'm not sure how closely it follows the book but the movie itself is OUTSTANDING!! needless to say I highly recommend it.

It's on my list!  I'm finishing up the fourth season of The Last Kingdom on Netflix. It's a British historical fiction television series based on Bernard Cornwell's The Saxon Stories series of novels.

I've enjoyed it.

The book won pulitzer prize in 2014.
And yes you have to tell us if the movie closely follows the book.  Come back and tell us.

But for anyone who has not read the book, its best not to read too much about it..just see the movie and let it suprise you with its twists and how the story unfolds.  You won't be disappointed!!!

I will definitely watch The last Kingdom.
I just started watching second season of Dead To Me on netflix.  The first season caught me by surprise.  I didn't think i'd like it, as i started watching the first episode and was sure it wasn't for me..and then just before the last few minutes of the end of that first episode there was a big twist..and then i was hooked.  
Its quirky, dark comedy but the writing is witty and the characters are well written.  The story is quick, there are so many twists connecting the characters in a bizarre way...Good one to watch.

Anther series that i refused to watch for months thinking its too much about the new age of social media problems, like online hookup and problems arising like stalking...is a series called "You".

Sooooooo good...talk about sinful indulgence of something you refuse to watch and then you can't stop watching just to see the maddening obsession of social media stalking/love/the real world and internet world blurring the lines of reality.
Addictive!!! they have 2 seasons on netflix and the 3rd season starts next january.

That one was good; I haven't seen the others.

Layla, they are dropping hints about a fifth season for The Last Kingdom! I hope so! Aside from my previously mentioned Korean Drama fetish, I recommend the following from Netflix.

The 100 ( excellent sci-fi )
Marco Polo ( great historical fiction )
The Last Kingdom ( fantastic historical fiction )
Mars ( SUPERB sci-fi )
Mad Men ( Best finale EVER )
Messiah ( not sure there will be a second season )

Now I'm binging on the 16th season of Grey's Anatomy.  I feel like I've grown up with it!
