Good movie as well.
Hope it will be available globally on Spotify soon. There’s a lot of goody OST missing on Spotify still
Except in the US, Canada, and Japan.
Here’s a comprehensive list of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon original series that are HBO level quality:
It makes bad niche things I watch and mostly enjoy. ( Net value to me > 0)
It makes bad other-niche things I never have watched and rarely show up in my recommendations. (Net value to me = 0, +/- the tiny negative of rarely having to /browse past it/).
You’re arguing the negative of 3 is so large that it overwhelms 2, so much so that it subtracts from the value of 1, if I’ve understood you correctly.
I don’t find 3 that big a problem. What I find problematic is /how it identifies 2/.
“Oh, you watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Here’s a list of every shitty movie we ever found that had a teenage girl OR a vampire in it.”
It seems to have a very rough idea of tags, and then just show me everything with similar tags. Except the tags only rarely capture what I found attractive in the first place, and “shitty vampire movie” doesn’t do anything for me if my attraction was “witty coming of age series with supernatural overtones”.
There's been some crazy good stuff on HBO (I loved GoT just like everyone else), but to say Netflix doesn't make anything of the quality level HBO puts out is completely untrue, imo.
* The Expanse
* The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
* The Boys
* Sneaky Pete
* The Last Kingdom

Hulu (don’t use it much):
On edit: looked up Dark again and I think it is actually a Netflix production as opposed to a foreign series they have rebranded for other regions as their own.
1. Though it'll only be via HBO Max in the US/Canada.
EDIT: oh apparently it's only on spotify
EDIT2: can't find it on spotify either
EDIT3: AH FUCK IT I'LL USE YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK1Ij_-mank
Also I find the word "suddenly" kind of weird, as Japanese companies do this (unlock their popular work/artists in streaming without announcement in advance) semi-frequently.
Really happy that I can now listen to Totoro 's soundtrack on Spotify, the joy of feeling in the Japanese countryside on a hot summer day while being in a rainy European city is priceless.
Looks like only 5 of the 693 tracks are available to most. Perhaps, like people in the reddit thread are guessing, they are only available in Japan.
Some of the newer movies I haven’t had a chance to really sit down and listen to. This was from the era when I was in school and needed study music.
