It would appear Netflix has added a random play button. I think it plays content from your list.

We finished Haunting of Bly Manor this weekend. This started off great. Spooky, a little scary with interesting characters. But in the end I can’t recommend, rather poor final episode IMO. Too bad as I still enjoyed all the characters.

I had to stop at episode 4 of Bly Manor. I couldn't handle the brutal accents and the kids. It wasn't scary enough to hold my attention to whatever they were building to.

It's too bad because I enjoyed the first season.

I'll just casually throw in a recommendation for the earlier movie version of this story, The Innocents. Deborah Kerr was so great in this, it made it hard to even watch the mini-series version.

Holy fata Hubie Halloween with Adam Sandler is the worst (to the surprise of nobody, I'm sure). I made it exactly halfway through before giving up. Maybe it picks up in the second half.

If Sandler didn't do the stupid voice it would have been 80% more watchable but still only about 30% watchable.

Adam Sandler just isn't funny anymore. His best movies in the past 15 years were Funny People and Uncut Gems. In Funny People he plays a parody of himself. Uncut Gems is clearly not a comedy.

Netflix paid Sandler $275 million to churn out mediocre crap.... And that's what he does.

Yeah, his stupid voice is very offputting

Probably inspired to think it was acceptable by Ben Stiller when he did Zoolander

the guy has had a great career, though.
sure he makes stupid stuff, but he gets paid a lot of money to basically have fun with his friends.

Surprised you got halfway I think I made it maybe 3 minutes. My brother and I saw Ben Stillers reprisal of his Happy Gilmore character and thought we had to watch for nostalgias sake. It was a mistake.

Not even Julie Bowen could keep me interested.

The Netflix movies have been really successful and are among the most popular of Netflix originals. My teenage boys certainly like them.

I loved it, but I give Sandler a free pass on everything.

I was just there for the free snuggles with my kids. When they finally gave up on the movie it was a big relief.

Yeah but remember Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore?

Proof you can have fun with your friends and still be funny. His career has been great for himself, not so much for the rest of us.

I had heard that he was good in Uncut Gems but then when I watched it it was just Adam Sandler playing loud Adam Sandler. The Safdie brothers are the most overrated thing going right now.

I am disappointed these 2 shows got cancelled after 1 season.

"I'm Not OK With This" and "Away"

Although Away was boring at times it's something my wife and I both watched.

I just found "I'm not ok with this" funny and interested in more.
