Netflix's front page can be pretty tricky to navigate. While it does a good job of promoting blockbuster movies and Netflix Originals, the other stuff is usually buried out of sight.

This is where the website Flixboss comes in. It lets you search for the best movies and series on Australian Netflix based on Internet Movie Database (IMDB) rankings. Best of all, you can narrow down your search by genre or year. Hurrah!!

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

It's not just you -- shows and movies can be really loud. Carrying earplugs in your purse or pocket might sound like the kind of thing a cranky old person might do, but if you want to be able to complain about things like theatre noise when you're ancient, it's best to protect your hearing now.

When someone says "Australian science fiction movie," thoughts immediately and inevitably turn to Mad Max - if not George Miller's insanely influential 1979 original, then to any of the sequels that followed over the years, including the recent, justly lauded Fury Road. But here's the thing: it was never just about Max.

"I love deadlines," said Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams. "I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by." Here's a mental trick for thinking of long-term deadlines, based on minor spoilers for the horror film It Follows.

Awards season is rapidly approaching, which means you should be watching lots of movies - so that you may express your smart and good movie opinions - and eating lots of snacks. A big bowl of fluffy, flavorful popped corn is the obvious, correct choice, but if you find yourself getting a little bored of the basic butter-and-salt situation, we have some ways to branch out.

I don’t know that 2017 was the best year for movies, but there were some pearlers. Disney continued to dominate the box office – five of the highest-grossing films came from their stable of superheroes, Jedi and pirate franchises. Disney’s assault continues in 2018, but there are a ton of other gems to keep an eye out for too.

Here’s what we’re excited about.

This past weekend, I decided to take two four-year-olds -- my daughter and her friend -- to see Coco, Pixar's new movie. But before leaving the house, I happened to read the tweets. The many, many tweets. There were warnings, outcries, and rage-induced petitions regarding the 21-minute long Frozen "featurette" that plays before the film. It's called Olaf's Frozen Adventure, and according to those who've endured it, it's bad. Excruciating. "In addition to representing the worst elements of the crass commercialization of Christmas, the songs were lacklustre, the plotting is painfully cliched, and Olaf is annoying as shit," tweeted one viewer. Another wrote: "Even my 6yr old girl was like -- "how LONG is this??!" Many said that they were so confused, restless or irritated that they almost walked out of the theatre.

As 2017 comes to an end, we start to look back at the year that was. In film, at least, the year was excellent. So excellent, in fact, that figuring out the top 10 scifi, superhero, and fantasy films was incredibly difficult. However, while there are at least 25-30 movies from 2017 deserve at least some recognition, ultimately, the cream rises to the top.

For such a terrible year, we got a lot of good things out of 2017. Good movies, good TV and one of the best years for games we've seen this generation. As far as things I've sat in front of and consumed, I can't really complain about 2017 at all.
