Here’s some great news just in time for the weekend: someone’s created a site that makes browsing through Netflix so much easier.

Reddit user CrazedEli, aka Ville Salminen, announced his creation Flixable on the r/television subreddit Friday. It’s basically a search engine for Netflix and it’s worth checking out; it could save you hours of wasted time.

Flixable shows what’s popular, what’s original, and what’s leaving Netflix. Users can browse by genre and IMDb rating, and filter their searches based on release date. 

Salminen said he built the site as a hobby to learn more about programming. He noticed that many Netflix users on Reddit were frustrated by the streaming service’s unintuitive browsing options, pointing to one popular complaint in particular.

“That confirmed my suspicions that there’s still demand for a site like Flixable,” he said. 

Between comedy specials, documentaries, and original series, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content available on Netflix. “With Flixable, I had one aim,” Salminen said. “To build a site that would make it easier for Netflix subscribers to choose what to watch on a movie night.” 

Salminen says he created AllFlicks, a similar Netflix browsing site, in 2014. After it became “surprisingly popular” he sold it to Reelgood in November 2017. “As I had a kind of dream of rebuilding AllFlicks from scratch, I was able to do that now – with more time on hand,” Salminen says.  

Salminen says he’s in talks with Hulu’s representative about working on a similar site for the streaming service. As of now, Flixable only catalogues what’s available on Netflix in the United States, but he plans on expanding it to include other countries as well. 

Salminen says, “It’s starting to seem that I should start reconsidering my day job.”

Netflix’s ‘Lust Stories’ is Indian filmmaking at its finest

“As Indian cinema’s worldwide audience grows, most people are acquainted exclusively with Bollywood – Hindi-language romantic dramas full of dazzling song-and-dance numbers that may or may not be related to plot.

But Indian cinema has always been more than that, just as Italian film extends beyond neorealism or and the French New Wave is just one piece of a rich history. Cinephiles may know Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy, which offers a glimpse of the type of gritty auteurship that doesn’t pay the Bollywood bills, but speaks to some truly fine artistry. Indian short films remain a source of this ingenuity and excellence, and Netflix’s Lust Stories is a fresh new installment.

Like Bombay Talkies before it, Lust Stories is an anthology of short films from known Indian directors Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar. They are exceedingly simple stories: a teacher’s obsession with…..”

Netflixs latest hit The Kissing Booth is a Wattpad success story

“One of the most popular movies in the U.S. is a terrible teen rom-com called “The Kissing Booth,” and it’s not in theaters. Instead, this Netflix Original with its paltry 17 percent critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes, shot up to become the No. 4 movie on IMDb, before more recently dropping down to No. 9. Its leads, Jacob Elordi and Joey King, also became the No. 1 and No. 6 most popular stars on IMDb’s StarMeter, respectively, shortly after the film’s launch.

The secret to the movie’s success, however, is not just a combination of teenagers’ questionable taste in entertainment and the power of Netflix’s distribution — though both play a major role, clearly.

Instead, it’s that “The Kissing Booth” is tapping into a built-in audience: teenage Wattpad users.

Yes, Wattpad.

In case you’re not familiar, Wattpad is an online site…..”
