  3. More and more people are watching Netflix than any other movie platforms nowadays. As the number of subscribers is growing by 10% annually, it has become a definitive modern media company. In fact, Netflix has replaced broadcast TV to be the center of American culture. This is quite obvious at the viewership numbers. Based on the subscription video service of Netflix, the number of households who watched a particular movie can be determined. This is based on the households watching at least 2 minutes of Netflix original movie. This is due to the online business model that allowed Netflix to gather large amounts of data from its customers. Its AI-powered algorithm was able to create personalized recommendations for each user on the basis of their demographics, preferences, ratings, and watch history. The recommendations were quite accurate. In fact, Netflix claims that 80% of the watched content comes from recommendations. Here are the most popular Netflix shows of all time based from statistical results. Murder Mystery (2019) – 73 Million Views Murder Mystery is a movie that brought about 73 million views around the world in just 4 weeks. According to Netflix, this was the most successful film after a partnership with the company and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions in 2014. The Witcher (2019) – 76 Million Views The Witcher is a fantasy series drawing 76 million views after 4 weeks on Netflix. The film is also the most-watched first season of television ever on Netflix. This is based on how people watched a show for at least 2 minutes. Netflix has changed its definition of ‘views’ from counting the accounts that watched at least 70% of one episode of the series into those that watched a show for at least a couple of minutes. This new metric has enabled The Witcher to become one of the most popular shows ever. Orange Is The New Black (2013-2019) – 105 Million Views Over the course of its production, Orange Is the New Black has gained 105 million views, which is the most-watched original series ever. This was after its 7th and final season in July 2019. The popularity of the show was determined after an independent poll commissioned by MoffettNathanson in 2019. In fact, the series was their favorite Netflix show and followed by Stranger Things. Since viewing figures are not made public by Netflix, a few other sources have to be consulted, including Rotten Tomatoes. Thus, ‘Orange is the New Black’ is placed in number 3, followed by ’13 Reasons Why’ in number 2, and ‘Stranger Things’ in number 1.

  6. Tarantino is good, no doubt, but he’s most about violence. I am not denying that his movies have meanings along with amazing action sequences, but I like Nolan more. His movies may be mainstream and he does not have many in his list, but he surely knows how to deliver. I’ll never have enough of Interstellar.
  7. Quentin Tarantino changed my life with Kill Bill. The man is a gem and his movies are a sea full of treasures. Desperado, Sin City, Kill Bill, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction. You keep wanting more from this man.
  8. Okay, guys, it is time to put a smile on those faces. Shall we talk about how our favorite directors changed our outlook toward life simply by making outstanding movies?
  9. So, I watched The Great Hack and Miss Americana on Netflix. The Great Hack was so cool that I cannot even..you could watch it too you know. Might just like it.
  10. So what kind of documentaries have you been watching?
  11. That’s cute. I see that you’re mostly into Romantic movies. It’s good. I had been watching Spartacus and completed Lucifer lately along with a few other shows and documentaries.
  12. I saw a number of movies during this time and it is a combination of both old and new ones. I re watched a few of my favorite movies like Begin Again, The Notebook, Eat, Love, Pray, The Dark Knight, Shawshank Redemption, The Before Series. I also explored a few new movies like Dolittle, Bombshell, Starwars: The Rise of Skywalker, and 1917, but I really liked Birds of Prey.
  13. Hi guys, tell me about the movies that you’re watching amid this pandemic lockdown to kill time?
  14. I believe that there are many other better originals to look up to. You cannot expect everything to be as good as Breaking Bad, right?
  15. I agree with you. The fans only came back because the franchise has made a reputation of itself over the years with their previous seasons but they made an absolute blunder in Season 4. I am not even looking forward to Season 5 anymore. I am highly disappointed.
  16. Oh, that’s totally gone haywire in its latest season. I liked how it pushed through and captured an audience base in its first season but look at them now. Made a complete mess of itself.
  17. Hey there guys, I see there’s a lot going on about Netflix’s Money Heist, share your thoughts?
  18. The film industry may be decorated with some of the best actors in the world, but only a few of these men will ever come close to what Tom Hanks has accomplished in his career as an actor and filmmaker. From comedy to action, thriller to animation, Tom Hanks has moved audiences from every walk of life through the roles that he played over the years—and he’s not ready to retired any time soon. · The boy from California Thomas Jeffrey Hanks was born on July 9, 1956 in Concord California to Amos Mefford Hanks, an itinerant cook and Janet Marylyn, a hospital worker. When his parents got divorced in 1960, Tom and his older siblings lived with their father where they moved quite often. Hanks went to the Chabot College in Hayward, California to study theater and later moved to California State University, Sacramento. · The move to New York Tom Hanks moved to New York in 1979 where he played several roles for low-budget films. A year after, he was cast to play Kip Wilson on the pilot of “Bosom Buddies,” the TV show that would catch director Ron Howard’s attention. While working on “Splash,” Howard requested for Hanks to audition for a secondary role but was left so impressed that he gave the actor the lead role instead. · The back-to-back win For many years, Hanks had his share of good and not-so-good movies. But in 1993, he starred as a gay lawyer with AIDs in the epic film “Philadelphia” where he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. And if one Oscars is not enough, Hanks won another Academy Award for his iconic role in “Forrest Gump,” making him only the second actor to ever win a back-to-back Oscars after Spencer Tracy. In 1995, Tom Hanks became the voice of Woody in the hit film “Toy Story” and he also starred in several blockbusters including “Apollo 13,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Cast Away” that won him a Golden Globe, “The Da Vinci Code” and “Captain Phillips.” This year, Hanks is again playing the voice of Woody in “Toy Story 4,” where he said has an ending that is “a moment in history.” Tom Hanks is, without a doubt, one of the most versatile actors film has ever seen. From gaining and losing weight for his roles to touching the hearts of his audience with his stellar performances, Hanks is definitely up there with the legends when it comes to acting.
  19. Most of us know him as Jack Dawson in James Cameron’s epic movie “Titanic,” but Leonardo di CaPrio has been in the film industry since 1989. Today, he is an award-winning actor, producer and environmentalist, and a dream leading man for most of Hollywood’s most beautiful actresses. Here’s everything you need to know about the man behind the legend: He was named after the famous painter. Born in Los Angeles, California, Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is the only child of George DiCaprio, a producer, comix artist and comic book distributor and Irmelin, a legal secretary. It is said that DiCaprio was named after the famous painter Leonardo Da Vinci because his mother was looking at a painting at the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Italy when she first felt Leo kick inside her belly. He started acting at the age of five. In 1979, five-year old DiCaprio was part of a children’s TV series “Romper Room,” but was later removed for being disruptive. When he turned 14, DiCaprio landed his first job as a model in an ad for Matchbox cars by Mattel. He later on starred in more commercials that include Apple Jacks, Kraft Foods, and Bubble Yum. He almost changed his screen name to Lenny Williams. When he was just starting out as an actor, an agent allegedly tried to persuade DiCaprio to change his screen name to Lenny Williams since his name was believed to be too generic and wouldn’t land him as many roles. He tried again when he was 13 where he got an agent that let him use his real name. He earned his first Oscar nomination at 19. In 1993, DiCaprio earned his first Academy Award nomination for his supporting role in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” at just 19 years old. He went on to star in many successful films including “Titanic” in 1997 that catapulted him to fame, “Catch Me If You Can in 2002,” “Blood Diamond” in 2006 and “The Great Gatsby” in 2013. But after falling short from winning the Oscar for so many years, DiCaprio finally got his first Academy Award in 2015 for his epic performance in “The Revenant.” Today, Leonardo DiCaprio is more than just an actor. He is also a committed environmentalist who supports different environmental efforts with his celebrity friends. In 2013, DiCaprio donated $3 million to help save the tigers in Nepal and another $3 million to conserve the ocean.

  21. Chandler Bing, any day. They don’t make men like him anymore and that really disheartens me. I was elated that Chandler got married to Monica.
  22. I love Monica. I am not an expert chef like she is, but I am definitely the kind of an obsessive-compulsive person that she is.
  23. I related best with Dinosaur Doctor. I mean Ross. I found that I’m just like him in many ways in life. Just that I haven’t found my Rachel yet. Haha!
  24. Joey was an amazing character. Friends have impacted me in ways as nothing else could. Joey portrays liveliness. I like him maybe because I lack the same quality.
  25. I love Phoebe Buffay, or should I say, Princess Consuela Bananahammock. She has been a role model for me in during my teenage. I was in tears when she finally found Mike!
