    Who've seen this? I fell asleep the first 20 mins. Is it worth to watch the entire film?

    It wasn't thought provoking as I thought it should be. I call it a 'Meh'.

    I actually liked The Outsider more than Annihilation.

    The former was a nice surprise since I didn't any buzz about it.

    The latter was so hyped that I expected a lot from it.

    ^The Defenders was better even if it were a limited series...JJ2 is basically not as spunky as the first season,same with Luke Cage and Iron Fist...only Daredevil deserves its 2nd season...

    Now if they can only bring back TD for another limited series rather than solo serials...well

    The Punisher S1 is almost as good as DD S1. Looking forward to Season 2.

    Cannes-winning filmmaker Brillante Ma Mendoza’s 12-part series on the drug war, “Amo,” scores a deal with Netflix, the world’s leading internet-based entertainment company.

    “The great thing about this new development is that we can now expand our audience for Filipino movies and TV series,” Mendoza told the Inquirer. “Foreign viewers will get acquainted with our stories and culture on a different platform—beyond the film festival circuit.”

    Mendoza’s series was initially set to premiere on TV5 last Aug. 25. But since TV5 joined forces with ESPN late last year, reinventing itself as a sports channel, “Amo” has found itself a more suitable home in Netflix—which is renowned for such hits as “House of Cards,” “Black Mirror,” “The Crown” and “Stranger Things.”

    The opening scene in "Amo" starts with the lady dropping tomatoes in the market as officer Derek pursues a cam-cording pirate.

    JJ S2 didn't have much source materials to go with so it seemed evident that their writers are not so good at conceptualizing original story lines.
    All woman direction is welcome, just get better female directors next time.

    They should get the right directors regardless of gender period.

    I was going to say that but "men's right" is not a thing and feminism and sexism is really a touchy topic.

    ^ Thanks for saying it.

    Back on topic, gave JJ s2 a chance... up until episode 5.

    A couple of days ago, I was just thinking about how great it would be to have a Netflix Original or 2 being made in the PH. Looking forward to Amo.

    ...which makes me think... whatever happened to OTJ the TV series that was supposed to go up on Hooq?

    It's an on and off thing, but works almost all the time. I'm on Getflix now because of the price, and I also use it for Hulu and Amazon Prime videos. I seldom turn on the US option, because streaming is laggy and buffers a lot if you have more than one streamer. I have 4 streamers in the house and even on 200mbps connection, it still buffers a lot when the Netflix US is on.
