Is Abominable on Netflix? Is Abominable worth watching?

Abominable is the name of the animated movie created by Dreamworks together with Pearl Studio. It was released in 2019, and it might bring a recent movie like Bigfoot to your mind. But, is Abominable worth watching? Is it family-friendly? Will adults enjoy the movie as well? Can I watch Abominable on Netflix?

Want to know more about the movie Abominable? Here you can find all sorts of information, and a review that will let you know whether it is a movie worth watching or not!

Is Abominable on Netflix?

The movie cannot be streamed on Netflix yet, but once it comes to the streaming platform, I will update the article with more information about how and where it can be streamed.

Abominable review

Abominable is still a cinema movie, meaning that you cannot stream it online yet. But, is it worth spending some dollars to watch this movie at the cinema? I would clearly say yes!

An Abominable review
An Abominable review

Last year, I was judged to watch the movie Bigfoot twice in the cinema, simply because I had to bring my two kids on two different occasions. To be honest, it was a boring movie and I suffered myself through it twice. So, I was kind of skeptical as I went to watch Abominable (with both kids) yesterday, but luckily, it was a way better experience for me.

The story of Abominable

This description is packed with spoilers, so be careful if you actually plan on watching this movie.

The scariest scene in the film comes in the first minute. Someone is running through small halls trying to escape. Guards do their uttermost to stop the creature, and that is when we see a Jeti for the first time. It has been taken the prison, and now it does everything in its power to escape. Using some special power, it manages to escape, but it is hurt along the way and hides on some roof looking towards a poster saying “Travel to Mount Everest.” The Jeti knows that is where it belongs and feels attracted to the poster and to Mount Everest.

In the same house, we see a young girl who is gathering as much money as possible. She doesn’t spend time with her family (after her father died), instead, she works to earn money, so she can visit all the places her father wanted to take her. One day, she goes to the roof to play her violin, only to discover a giant white arm hidden behind some carpets. She gets really scared, but as you probably guessed, a special friendship is created between the girl and the Jeti.

This is the start of a quest for them to get back to Mount Everest with the Jeti. But, the ones who kept the Jeti imprisoned are also out there to get the Jeti back, so there will be much action and fun before the story comes to an end.

Is Abominable a funny movie?

I had a really good time watching the movie at the cinema. Not only did I laugh a couple of times, but my kids laughed a lot. Many of the jokes were easy to predict, but it was created in such a way that kids love it. So, when the boy burps a little one, we all look forward to the giant burp of the Jeti. And guess what happens a few seconds later upon the arrival of the giant burp of the Jeti (or should we call it a barf)? Loud laughter among all the kids and most of the adults in the cinema.

There are many jokes and humorous things happening like that in the movie, and it makes it really easy and enjoyable to watch.

Unlike Bigfoot, a movie that dealt with the tough topic of being open to new stuff and not living in the past, this is a much easier movie to digest. Here you can simply enjoy it and follow the story, and the children will for sure have a good time watching it. In fact, I believe many parents will have a good time watching Abominable as well.

Is Abominable worth watching?

The movie currently has a 95% audience score at Rotten Tomatoes, and even though the critics’ score is lower, it is still a very good score. My personal score to this movie would probably be around 80% and considering that I am an adult who doesn’t really care much about animated movies for kids, I would consider this to be a very good score.

In other words, if you want to watch a great movie at the cinema tonight with your kids, this is a movie you should consider. It is completely harmless, it is family-friendly, it has some great jokes, and the story in itself is very nice and also touching the value of staying close to your family!

The girl in the movie looks really beautiful!
The girl in the movie looks really beautiful!

I should also mention that the scenery, the animations, and the characters are beautifully made. It is such a joy to watch the girl in the movie, and also to see the Jeti in its beauty.

I can warmly recommend this movie!

Is His Dark Materials on Netflix?

There is a brand new TV series named His Dark Materials that is getting a lot of attention at the moment. Can I stream His Dark Materials on Netflix? Is it on Netflix already? Or is it on Netflix in the United States, in India, or maybe in England? Here you will find all the information you need related to watch His Dark Materials on Netflix.

His Dark Materials is a joint production between HBO and BBC. If you have some knowledge and experience, then you already know the answer related to whether we will ever be able to watch His Dark Materials on Netflix. How come?

His Dark Materials on Netflix?
Can I watch His Dark Materials on Netflix?

His Dark Materials on Netflix right now

First of all, you cannot find His Dark Materials on Netflix at all in this very moment. It premiered on November 3rd on BBC, and it cannot be found on Netflix, no matter which VPN you use and where you might be in the world. So, you can just stop looking, because it is nowhere to be found.

His Dark Materials on Netflix in the future

Netflix is one of the streaming champions of the world, together with Amazon, Hulu, and HBO. So, as soon as I realized that His Dark Materials is a production from both the BBC and HBO, I at once understood that this show will never get to Netflix. If it was a BBC production (only), then we have seen many of their shows such as Bodyguard, Line of Duty, Cuckoo, and others get quite quickly to Netflix. But, since it is an HBO production as well, this will never reach Netflix, but instead, you need to watch it on either BBC iPlayer, or on HBO in your local nation.

His Dark Materials on Netflix – a video summary

I have also created a little video dealing with His Dark Materials and whether or not it will come to Netflix. I will just repeat what you have already read, but in addition, I will show you how to watch His Dark Materials on BBC iPlayer, no matter where you might be in the world.

If you have watched the clip and want to follow the instructions, click the button beneath to be taken to the PureVPN website.

The surprising elements of the Bill Gates documentary on Netflix

Were you one of many people who were looking forward to the documentary about Bill Gates on Netflix? I didn’t know much about it before I heard of it in a trailer, but once I understood that it is coming to Netflix, I became really enthusiastic. And guess what, I am still enthusiastic about it after watching the three episodes. It both surprised me and encouraged me while challenging me and informing me.

Bill Gates: Inside Bill’s Brain is a Netflix documentary that was recorded during a period of two years. A reporter is allowed to follow and see Bill Gates during much of his work, and also to get insight in how he works, and to ask him questions about the past that few people have asked him earlier. In other words, this is loaded with information for those who want to get to know Bill Gates a bit better.

Inside Bill's Brain
Inside Bill’s Brain

Some of the surprising elements

The first episode surprised me in many ways. How come? To many computer nerds, Bill Gates is all about Microsoft, programming, and about being rich. But, the first episode turns the focus in a totally different direction – it focuses on fighting polio all across the world. Why is such a fight included in a documentary about Bill Gates? Probably because it is just as important to Bill Gates as Microsoft or any other company is right now.

And that really makes it interesting. We are all fighting to make money, but in this documentary, we see that Bill Gates’ focus currently is much more about helping the planet. He uses lots of time and of his talent in finding out how it can be done in the best possible way, and the first episode deals a lot with this.

The second episode is more like what I had expected from the documentary before I started. Here we get to know more about how his career started, how the “Windows” project started, and we get to see and discover that Bill Gates really had a talent for programming. We also hear about his colleagues, and what happened in his relationship with those, and also his future wife, Melinda.

The third episode managed to surprise me once again. We get to know about his battle for clean water, but also to create energy that is environment-friendly. This is a part I knew nothing about at all, and to discover that he actually works with nuclear energy was mindblowing. And I guess that is interesting, especially because I am very negative to nuclear power myself. After Chernobyl, it all feels so dangerous, and I guess the majority of people alive today are skeptical of the concept. But, if Bill Gates is working on it, then it for sure has potential.

I would have been very curious to see an upcoming documentary about Bill Gates, created by people who worked with him and around him, but without any “intention” to glorify him. This is a Netflix documentary that clearly glorifies him, and it makes me curious about dealing with what former colleagues and partners think of him.

Of course, we see his challenges in this documentary, and he is clear about his own weaknesses, but still – it would be very different if this was supposed to be a two-sided documentary. But, I guess I will have to go to Amazon.com to find a book or some other documentary dealing with Bill Gates if that would be the goal.

Inside Bill’s Brain: Conclusion

I enjoyed it from the start till the end. This was worth the money (that I pay for my Netflix subscription), and I am looking forward to more similar content in the future!

If you want to watch it online, visit Netflix.com and stream it immediately. You don’t need access to American Netflix or any other Netflix region to watch it, because this is original content that can be streamed on Netflix worldwide.

Have you seen the documentary? I would love to hear your thoughts about it!

Bill Gates and cryptocurrencies

The topic of cryptocurrencies isn’t touched at all in the documentary. But, I do know that Bill Gates’ isn’t a big fan of the cryptocurrencies, even though he sees some potential in blockchain technology. After watching the documentary, I feel tempted to think that “Since Bill doesn’t like cryptocurrencies, neither should I.” But, then again – he cannot be correct about all things, and I guess there are lots of things that can be said about places and situations in which Bill was wrong. However, to learn more about that, I guess I would need to watch a different documentary, or read some other book!

Some thoughts about what to stream on US Netflix in November

The most interesting TV shows and movies on Netflix in November are all original productions. So, even if you know how to access US Netflix, it isn’t needed to watch these movies and TV shows.

There will be quite a lot of Netflix Christmas movies coming to the platform in November. These all look like cliche-junk movies, but still, if you are desperate to get the Christmas feeling in the house, they might be worth watching.

Do you remember the movies about the Christmas Prince? We have gotten one every year for the last two years, and this year we will get one more. Our princess doesn’t have to travel to Andalucia or somewhere else, but this year a boy who believes himself to be a knight is trying to win the heart of our girl. Doesn’t that sound awesome? If you like sugar, this is it! What is the title of the movie? A Knight before Christmas!

If you want another cliche Christmas movie, go for A Holiday in the Wild. Here we meet a woman who goes to Africa. It was supposed to be a second honeymoon, but instead, she ends up going alone. Guess what she will meet in Africa? A lot of animals, and of course, a cute guy? Who can guess how this movie will end?

If you are throwing up because of the sugar dose, it might be time to relax with The Irishman. This is a brand new Netflix original starring Al Pacino and Robert de Niro. This is something we have been looking forward to for a long time, and it is probably the highlight of November 2019 (if we have to mention ONE title). This is a typical mafia movie with lots of action and influencing the course of an entire nation.

Many people have been waiting for The Crown season 3 for a long time. Well, in November the wait will be over. Are you ready to see how the life of the royals will continue?

What will you stream on Netflix in the United States in November?

Have you made any decisions about what to stream on Netflix after reading this article, checking the video, and reading through the list? I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

How can I watch Poldark season 5 on Netflix?

The fifth season of Poldark is the newest in the fantastic series. Would you like to watch it on Netflix? Is it possible to stream Poldark season 5 on Netflix at all? If yes, where and how? Is there a VPN provider that will help you get access to Poldark on Netflix?

I was just out watching some stuff on Netflix when I bumped into Poldark season 5. I am frequently using American Netflix, Canadian Netflix, UK Netflix, and also other regions, but I couldn’t find Poldark season 5 anywhere at all. In fact, Poldark is hard to find at all, much less the newest season.

But, then I used the VPN services of PureVPN and connected to their server working with French Netflix. Do you know what happened?

Where and how to watch Poldark on Netflix?
I can watch all five seasons of Poldark on Netflix

Would you like to experience the same and get the chance to watch all eight episodes of Poldark season 5 on Netflix? This is what you need to do!

Watch Poldark season 5 on Netflix

  • Sign up for the VPN services of PureVPN. It comes with a 31-day refund policy, meaning that you are protected and safe if you do not like it.
Watch Poldark on Netflix with PureVPN(you can start watching in a few minutes)
  • Download the PureVPN application to your device after signing up.
  • Install the application, choose “streaming mode“, and choose Netflix FR from the list of popular websites.
  • Restart your browser or your Netflix application.

You are now ready to watch Poldark season 5 on Netflix.

Having trouble watching Poldark on Netflix?

It might be that you follow the instructions and use PureVPN, but you still cannot find Poldark on Netflix. If that is so, ask yourself one question – where is your Netflix account registered? If you live in an EU or an ECA country, then you will still see your local Netflix content, even if you connect to a PureVPN server in France. What can you do about this?

There are several solutions, but the best is probably described in the following article. It might sound complicated, but it isn’t. In fact, it will save you for quite a lot of money, so spend some extra minutes on fixing this if you live in the EU and want to stream Poldark on Netflix in France.

If you live outside the EU and the ECA, forget about this – you can enjoy it without making any changes at all to your Netflix region.

Another VPN service that will help you stream Poldark season 5 on Netflix

Would you like to watch Poldark on Netflix, but for some reason, you do not want to use PureVPN? There is one more VPN provider that will help you access French Netflix, and that is ExpressVPN. It is more expensive than PureVPN, but it is slightly faster, and it will give you access to a few more Netflix regions.

Visit ExpressVPN(start watching Netflix right away)

ExpressVPN also comes with a refund policy, meaning that you can ask for your money back anytime within 30 days.

If you like Poldark…

I believe there might be a lot of Poldark fans that might enjoy the series named Outlander. You will then be even more happy to discover that French Netflix is the only Netflix region that gives you access to the newest season of Outlander. In other words, you will be able to watch the newest season of Outlander as well, not only Poldark season 5.

And of course, you can use both ExpressVPN and PureVPN to access American Netflix, UK Netflix, Canadian Netflix, and so much more.

Who knows, maybe you will discover TV shows and movies you have wanted to stream for a long time on Netflix as you use one of these series? I just tested PureVPN with Japanese Netflix, and it was a few minutes ago that I discovered that you can actually watch A Star is Born on Netflix in Japan (as the only region at the moment). Isn’t that cool? It was one giant coincident, but considering that I haven’t seen the movie yet (but, I really want to see it), I guess I have the program for tonight ready!

How and where to stream Poldark on Netflix?

This works on all devices…

This works, not only on Windows computers, but both PureVPN and ExpressVPN have delightful applications for Fire TV, Android devices, iOS systems, and so much more. Besides unblocking Netflix, you can also use the PureVPN application to watch BBC and ITV in the UK and to watch TV channels and streaming services in more than 100 different nations worldwide.

As you can see, it is 100% possible to watch Desperate Housewives on Netflix, even though some of the seasons are missing.

This is truly a legendary TV series, and it was extremely popular during its run time. It won 3 Golden Globe statues, and it consists of a total of 8 seasons. It has a 7,4/10 score on IMDb, based on more than 100,000 votes. It stars some amazing actors, such as Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, James Denton, and lots of others.

I haven’t watched all the seasons and episodes myself, but I know a lot of my family members have. In other words, this is awesome action and humor for those who want to relax in front of the TV screen while watching what’s going on at Wisteria Lane. This is the location of the series, as we see the neighbors pay attention to one another, take care of one another, take advantage of one another, and spy on one another. This is the story of a neighborhood packed with beautiful houses, beautiful people, and some not so nice people.


Desperate Housewives premiered on ABC on October 3rd in 2004, and the fun lasted until the last season finished on May 13th in 2012. In 2007, Desperate Housewives was reported to be the most popular TV show worldwide in total.

Criminal: UK 01 e02 review

Not long ago, I watched the first episode of Criminal: UK. I was really positive about the concept and liked how they manage to keep the tension of the show up for the entire episode, even though it all took place in a single room (or at most 3). So, I was looking forward to the second episode as well. I was very curious to find out if they could keep this up for more episodes, considering that it is all about solving crimes in the interrogation room. So, how can they make lots of episodes all dealing with conversations in an interrogation room interesting?

My main worry before the episode was… can this be interesting once again? And even more, can it be interesting for 11 more episodes? The first was interesting, but can they make this work well for so many episodes?

Criminal: UK - episode 2 review
Criminal: UK – episode 2 review

Yes, it is based on true stories, and that in itself makes it interesting. But, there are lots of true stories that are completely boring to watch, even though they are based on reality.

So, whats up with Criminal: UK episode 2?

I watched the episode around 21.00 in the evening. This is when I like to watch TV and have quietness and peace to do so. I started with great enthusiasm, but something strange happened after about 20 minutes. I got really tired, and in the next moment, my eyes switched between a closed and an open status several times per minute. So, after thirty minutes I pressed the stop button. I didn’t manage to watch anymore.

Who’s to blame? I guess it was a mixture of me being tired and the show, but normally, I do not fall asleep watching interesting stuff at 21.00 in the evening. For some reason, I found this to be boring, and the story and the plot didn’t manage to grab a hold of my attention. There wasn’t the newness to the story anymore, and the plot itself was so standard and basic, that it feels as if I could have been the interrogator in the room instead.

After the girl confesses the crime, I would have said exactly the same – that was too easy. And yes it was, and in the end, the truth about what happened is told by the girl itself, and also her motivation for lying comes out. But, it was so easy to foretell based on the story that was told… and maybe that was what made me fall asleep.

When I watched the last minutes of the show, I got tired once again, but this time I managed to finish the episode without falling asleep.

Did you know that you can watch all the Criminal series on Netflix, all across the world? You do not need access to German Netflix to watch the Criminal: Germany, nor access to French Netflix to watch Criminal: France. The episodes are available on Netflix worldwide, making them all easy to watch and enjoy.

Have I given up on Criminal now?

I haven’t given up on the series at all. Maybe the second episode of Criminal: UK was a downer, but I will still give the last episode of season 1 a chance as well. Furthermore, I will also check out the other language versions, maybe they will be able to give the series something that the English language version doesn’t manage to give. Maybe there are more interesting cases to be cracked in other languages?

I guess I will discover as I give them all a chance. But, there is lots of other stuff that I want to stream and watch on Netflix at other streaming services as well. Did you know that ITV in the UK has produced a lot of great shows lately? The show Sanditon, based on the novel by Jane Austen has become really popular. Another popular show of theirs is A Confession, in which Martin Freeman plays the role of a DS doing everything to find a killer before he gets new victims. But, to do so, he decides to skip the rules and just follow what he believes is right. Is that a wise choice? There are several other shows as well, so I guess I will have a lot to do in October as well.

Do you have a favorite show? How do you like Criminal: UK? And what about the other versions? Are you a fan or not? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Ten movies worth watching on German Netflix

There are great Netflix original movies as well on Netflix in Germany, but here I will only mention the Hollywood blockbuster movies not produced by or for Netflix.

Justice League (2017)

DC Comics has had a hard time fighting against the Marvel Universe, but they have experienced fairly big success with their Wonder Woman and Aquaman movies. But, before both those movies were released, there as the Justice League movie from 2017. In the movie, we get to see Wonderwoman, and it is a complete breath of fresh air after the devastating and depressive Batman v. Superman movie. This is great action for those in love with the most important superheroes in the DC Comics universe.

Gone Girl (2014)

This is just a thriller in the super-class. Here we meet Ben Affleck who is suffering in a tough marriage. One day he returns home to discover that his wife is gone. What has happened? But, things get even worse as he is actually turning into the suspected person for what has happened to his wife. If you haven’t seen Gone Girl with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike yet, go ahead and stream it right now… it is awesome!

Wonder Woman (2017)

If you don’t really care about the DC Comics universe, you should still watch Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot is awesome in the role, and this was a movie liked by millions worldwide. It is a “female” production with the main characters being women, and it felt like a breath of fresh air to the DC Comics universe. Aquaman was great, but he doesn’t even get close to the character of Wonder Woman when it comes to quality and entertainment level. This movie is combining Second World War history with pure fiction, and I liked the concept (evne though I know many people who didn’t).

Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

For those in the mood for a real blockbuster movie on Netflix in Germany, Mrs. Doubtfire is the solution. This is Robbie Williams playing the role as a nanny in the house of his wife (they are going through a divorce). He is crazy to be with his children and willing to do anything just to be around them. But, it isn’t easy for a man to play the role of a nanny, and especially when the children start to get suspicious. This is a real classic worth watching!

Spy (2015)

Would you like to laugh a lot, but also enjoy some action and crazy jokes? Spy is a movie from 2015, starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Jason Statham. This is a spy movie, but with so many crazy things happening that you just have to laugh your way through the movie. I have seen it 3-4 times already, and I have no trouble watching it again. If you are in the mood for a serious movie, skip this one. However, this is a perfect activity for those who are a bit tired and just want to laugh and have a good time in front of the TV.

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Can you imagine watching Groundhog Dog with Bill Murray in an action version? If you decide to watch Edge of Tomorrow on Netflix in Germany, that is what you are going to get. A soldier is waking up to the same crucial day every single day, and he needs to live it through to stop the opponent in the Second World War. It isn’t easy, and every single day he dies in different ways. This is one more movie I have seen several times, and that I can easily imagine watching even more times (while waiting for the follow-up movie to come around).

The best movies on German Netflix

Dunkirk (2017)

Dunkirk received lots of praise worldwide, and I know it was a big Hollywood blockbuster. I wasn’t really that fond of the movie myself, but if you like Second World War dramas that try to show what happened in reality, while also giving you the action experience and some personal dramas, this is a movie worth watching.

You can now watch Dunkirk on German Netflix

Inglorious Basterds (2019)

I have mentioned quite a lot of World War movies so far in this list, and this is one more. But, this is also a very different movie. This is made purely for entertainment, and even though Brad Pitt has the main role in the movie, the German actor Christoph Waltz is the one that I remember. He is playing in an awesome way the role of a Naci officer, and even though he has been great many times, I feel like this is his best role ever in a movie. If you want a comedy/action/drama movie with humor from the Second World War, stream Inglorious Basterds on Netflix in Germany!

The Revenant (2015)

Leonardi di Caprio didn’t win an Oscar before this movie. He was nominated several times, but never managed to win. So, before The Revenant, everyone hoped he would actually win a statue, even though he didn’t deserve it for this role. But, the mainstream pressure made it through, and thus Leonardi di Caprio won an Oscar for his role as a wounded guy in this movie. To be honest, this felt like a depressing and long movie about revenge to me, and I felt depressed while I watched it. But, Leonardo still won an Oscar, so if you want to know why, check out the movie yourself!

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

This is the first of two Sherlock Holmes movies direted by Guy Ritchie. The second can also be streamed on Netflix in Germany, but the first one was both awesome and way better than the second. Here we get to look into the mind of Sherlock Holmes, while the city of London is terrifyed because of a bad guy who does magic tricks and even is capable of raising from the dead (so it seems). This will entertain everyone in love with a good drama in which Sherlock Holmes is the super-detective that sees things nobody else is capable of seeing.

Even though I didn’t like the second movie as much as I enjoyed the first, I still look very much forward to Sherlock Holmes 3 which will be released in 2021.
