You’re often left wanting more of a particular feeling after you complete a series…and it doesn’t have to stop there! Before you start on a new series, make that feeling last with a movie, like pairing the whimsical The Princess Bride to the delightfully quirky Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt or the criminally comedic The Big Short to the dramatically comedic Orange is the New Black.
After finishing a series, a majority of Netflix members (59%) take a pause, usually lasting three days, before committing to a new show. During that break, more than half (61%) watch a movie to keep the binge feeling alive. Whatever your mood, there’s something on Netflix for everyone.
According to Netflix, here are Singapore’s favourite binge pairings based on the mood they’re in:
Experience crime and mystery by pairing Making A Murderer and The Hunting Ground or How to Get Away With Murder and Inside Man
Keep that swagger when you move to The Godfather after Better Call Saul.
Other gangsta pairings include Breaking Bad and Inception, Marvel’s Luke Cage and 13TH, as well as Narcos and Cartel Land.
Girl Power Burning Bright
If you’re watching Grace & Frankie, carry on with Julie & Julia.
Other popular series-movie pairings include Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Fight Club, Orange is the New Black and The Big Short, as well as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Sex and the City: The Movie.
