Further discussion in English ? Come this way ! What kind of movies and series do you watch ?
Hi everyone !
I'm French and i'm here to deepen english language even thouh I've an advanced level. Some of you are looking for further conversation so I decided to create this discussion related to your favorite movies and series.
About movies, I like thriller, action & adventure, horror and fantastic movies. My favorite film directors ? Tarantino, Tim Burton, Night Shyamalan and James Cameron.
I'm also a big fan of Marvel and DC Comics. My vice is to do NetFlix binge watching lol. For me, the best serie ever is Sherlock ! I also like Fargo, Stranger things, bates motel, American Horror Story, Gotham, Dardevil and so many more !
Please come and tell me what's your favorite movies and series and we could discuss further about it !
My favourite films are Blade Runner and Once upon a Time in the West. I love science fiction, fantasy and spaghetti westerns. My favourite TV series are Firefly, The West Wing, Hannibal, Sleepy Hollow and Doctor Who. I am eagerly waiting for the next season of Sherlock. The last film I saw was Doctor Strange. I thought it was great! Have you seen it? :)
I watched Firefly and Sherlock in German on German Netflix before they blocked vpns. And Arrow. Sherlock was a bit challenging to keep up with last year, I could now but sadly Netflix uk only have them in English:( I love sci fi too. I watched Expanse in French.
I've been watching Poldark in French, and Gilmore Girls in German, and a Spanish soap opera Reina del Sul in Spanish. I watched Daredevil in German. I have been watching Luke Cage in Spanish but its a bit boring. I watched Jessica Jones in French I think. And Orphan Black in Italian. And Shadowhunters in Swedish. I could go on. I rarely watch anything in English. Except Homeland, I watched that despite it not having other languages available, but it did have quite a bit of German in the last series. I like that they have more non English series these days. El Marginal is great, Roba was interesting, Wallander of course, Braquo, the french secret service one is hilarious - how does that seem to a French person?
Netflix has done so much for my listening skills! It is a great tool. But I need some Russian series on there...
I like Don Matteo Investigates and RAI's Nero Wolfe. I watch German Krimis from time to time and I started The Returned but have not found time to finish it. I do not have Netflix but thankfully YLE (Finnish Broadcasting Company) likes European television. Roba? You mean the Finnish series? :)
Yes the Finnish one. If only I'd had a duolingo course to do first that could have helped me understand Finnish. I watched The returned in German too, but I haven't seen the others. I would love to still have access to more German made programs but there isn't much on Netflix uk and I can no longer access the German site. Altes Geld is about the only one. I've watched the first episode but not the rest yet as I got distracted by something else.
If you are interested in Finnish television, try to track down a series called RAID. It is one of the best television series ever made. And I am being objective here. I cannot normally stand Finnish television series. I did not care for Roba either.
I think you and I would get along well. Those are some of my favorite movie directors as well.
I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, so I've been watching that on HBO since Season 1.
Since GoT is currently in-between seasons, however, I've since found that the newest HBO series, Westworld, is extremely entertaining as well. I love deep, dark shows that make you think.
As far as Netflix goes, I have it but I rarely ever watch movies and shows on it. It seems to be a black hole that time sinks into, and I have to be careful with that because I already have enough delicious things to distract me (cough Duo! ahem! cough cough).
Then I keep getting asked about a 'Netflix and Phil' or something like that. I don't know who this 'Phil' is, but he seems pretty popular nowadays. The only Phil I watch though is Dr. Phil.
I love binge watching on Netflix, too! Right now I'm on season 5 of American Horror Story. What's your favorite season? I equally liked Murder House and Asylum. I've also seen Stranger Things and Daredevil. Since you like Marvel and DC, have you ever seen Young Justice or Jessica Jones?
I'am just re starting to Watch the first season of American Horror Story. Last time I began to Watch but finally i'm starter with Sherlock so I dropped the serie until a couple of days :) I've s'en the entire episodes of the first season of Jessica Jones and it was great, The bad guy is fantastic !
