    Hey Guys,
    Hope everyone is safe and staying Home. During this Lockdown time, I have been Binge watching many series and movies on the OnePlus TV, that I kept in my watchlist from a very long time. If you are an avid Movie/Series viewer like me, you might be knowing how difficult it is to decide what to watch next :D.

    So I thought why not help each other out by providing recommendations on Movies and Series and possibly discuss about what you liked and disliked, loop holes etc . This provides a chance to new bonding based on our Interests. The recommendations can be any genre, language, year of release provided you watched them in the last 6 months. If you feel that they are worth watching, let others know about them :)

    Let's Share 5 good Movies and Series that you've watched recently. Also, don't forget to share it's availability on the OTT apps.

    I will start with mine ;)

    Movies:

    1. Ratsasan (Tamil) - Sun Nxt... This is one of the best Indian psycho thriller movies I watched. Gripping screenplay and masterpiece bgm.
    2. Virus (Malayalam) - Prime Video.... Based on a real story happened in Kerala (Nippa Virus Attack)
    3. Triple Frontier - Netflix .... The most unpredictable movie I watched in recent times. Unconventional is the right word.
    4. Contagion - Prime Video... Did you know that the situation similar to the present Corona virus was depicted in this movie in 2011. Not the best movie but one time watch just to relate a movie to present life scenario.
    5. Parasite (Korean) - Prime Video.. I don't think I need to explain more about this. 2020's Oscar winner. Watch it without any expectations and open mind to like it.

    Series:
    1. The Witcher - Netflix ... What can I say? "Hmmmm". Adventure Ride. It's funny but still sticks to the action adventure genre. Pity, one has to wait 2 more years for the next season :(
    2. Money Heist (Spanish) - Netflix... Watch the first 2 seasons only. Thank me later :p
    3. Asur (Hindi) - Voot ... Surely one of the best Indian crime thriller series. Voot came into limelight because of this one series. PS: You can opt for 14 day trial.
    4. Aam Aadmi Family (Hindi) - MX Player TV ... Cute, Lovely and Relatable.
    5. Westworld - Hotstar .... The only series that needs explanation videos from youtube to understand everything. But worth it.

    Among many I watched recently, the above are few I could remember. You are always welcome to share more than 5 :cool:.

    Please share your recent watchlist :)


    Update:
    Searching for a movie on each App has become my daily task these days and I just came across an App named "Just Watch". This App is a life saver for sure. Search with the movie/series name and it shows where it is streaming and redirects directly to the App. Thought of sharing this useful info :)

    Super @Venky61!! thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience.

    I would also suggest another malayalam movie Uyare and also a Tamil one Superdeluxe. For fun and entertainment watch Good news and for gripping performance watch Guilty.

    Thank you bro @Venky61 for mentioning the list of movies and series that you've watched.

    One of the best series that i've watched in the last 6 months is 'The Last Ship', (available in Amazon Prime).
    There are 5 seasons, season 1 is pretty much will be the situation that we are in present day, the crew on-board the US Navy vessel sets off to find the cure for the viral pandemic that has wiped out most of the world's population. The rest of the seasons shows the post pandemic efforts of the world.
    For those who are into some serious action, adventure and tactics can watch this series. And also the series is directed by Michael Bay, who is famous for his action movies. I'm sure it won't make you bored 😉

    Thanks @Venky61 for this list.
    I am currently watching "The Big Bang Theory". I heard many times about this series, but never gave a thought until it came up on recommendation in Netflix. It's like a blend of Silicon Valley and FRIENDS. It had around 300 episodes and makes it perfect binge-watch this Quarantine time.

    I think this one is the best from the studio, I just don't get why Spirited Away is always first by so many people... not that is bad, but just "how and in what world is better than mononoke hime?

    I watched Family man and I liked it except for the ending. Hope it makes sense in season 2.
    I heard that Special Ops is very similar to Family Man and that's the reason I did not start yet. Should I?
    I have seen couple of episodes of suits but lost in translations :D May be I will start soon again.

    Ha Ha... Thanks to all the suggestions... I was about to write for the people who are bored it will be useful, but I thought that the ones burdened with Work from home will be offended :p

    Uyare is in my Watchlist too... need to make up ambience for it as it's a serious one. Remaining 3 I have watched and Guilty stands tall out of them.

    Hey,
    Yes I saw the thread. As it's for everything, I thought a dedicated one for just media would be easier to dive in :)
    And I stopped at SW7. Are they still coming :p

    Thanks for the suggestions :)
    One wouldn't believe that I still yet to watch Saving Private Ryan... High time I do :-/
    The Expanse looks like something I can try :D


    One of my friend had very similar description for this series.... I am done with pandemic movies already, time to watch a series now :)
    Thanks for the suggestion man.

    It's a movie or a series? I can see only a movie :eek:

    Glad you find the lists useful :)
    Is pet sematary scary? It's been so long that I watched a good horror movie. Would want to try if it's worth.
    Double tap was super fun.. Loved it.

    It is indeed Binge Watch Worthy :D Who's your fav character till now?
