Recommend ANY of the Kathryn Bigelow wide range of films including Near Dark (1987), Point Break (1991), Strange Days (1995), K-19: The Widowmaker (2002), The Hurt Locker (2008), Zero Dark Thirty (2012), and Detroit (2017). None of which are ‘*On Netflix*!’.

Patty Jenkins masterfully directed Charliz Theron in Monster and Wonder Woman but had damaged her credibility with the incomprehensible WW 1984.

That was just the absolute worst movie in movie-making history, I couldn't even finish it.

Why? You can log into Netflix anywhere in the world with the same account. If you're in the US you access US Netflix, if in Japan, you access Japanese Netflix. You're wasting money.

Helps explain why it’s turned into a ridiculous social justice platform. Aliens would think gays are 30% of the population.

How is representation of BAME and LGBT people ridiculous?

Because our priorities in creating films and television shows should be... let me just double check my note here... ah, yes, it says, "making sure that sexual demographics are accurately charted out in the event that an alien gets a Netflix account".

Certainly up there with conservatives having a meltdown over potato-based plastic toys!
