Netflix is the most popular service for video streaming with literally thousands of TV shows and movies to watch, and the content that they provide is constantly changing, so today, I present a new series of posts: "Netflix Picks." It is a post series where I pick several movies or TV shows on Netflix that you might have overlooked. Even if you do not have Netflix, these are three great films that you should check out. Let’s get started.
Note: The following movies are available on North American (and possibly other regions) as of 9/22/15.
The Sixth Sense
Before M. Night Shyamalan made awful movies, he made modern classics like The Sixth Sense. The film follows a young boy named Cole Sear, who can see strange things that others cannot, which frightens his mother. Psychiatrist, Dr. Malcolm Crowe, is hired to talk to the boy about what he sees and what might be causing it. However, everything is not as it first seems.
If you have yet to see The Sixth Sense, you have probably already had the film spoiled by now. However, if you have not been spoiled, you need to watch The Sixth Sense as soon as possible, because someone somewhere will spoil the film. It is a given, and if you are lucky enough to next to nothing about it, go watch it. It is one of the most intriguing films that I have seen, and Haley Joel Osment, gives an excellent child performance.

After The Raid, Ip Man is the quintessential martial arts film that everyone should watch at least once. The film stars Donnie Yen, so you might recognize him as being one of the stars of the upcoming Star Wars side-story, Rouge One, and if you are a Star Wars fan, Ip Man should give you an idea of just how kick*ss he is going to be in that film. Ip Man’s story is loosely inspired by the life of Ip Man, master of the martial art Wing Chun, and the man that taught Bruce Lee. While the film takes some drastic changes from history, the action direction is some of the finest you will ever see. For more about Ip Man, read my full review here.

From back when romance movies were actually good, Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of Audrey Hepburn most famous films and for good reason. While it may not be her best film or even the best romantic comedy-drama from the era, it is leaps and bounds ahead of just about all of the schmaltzy romcoms of today. As always, Hepburn is a delight in the lead role, as her grace and wit shine bright throughout the film.
