In this monthly list, we'll answer these questions with our best tips for Netflix.
Netflix: best shows and movies coming in March 2019
Netflix's March schedule brings us tear-jerking (The Notebook) and ass-kicking alike (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Kung Fu Hustle) as well as new comedy specials from Jimmy Carr and Amy Schumer. Popular series like Arrested Development and The Santa Clarita Diet are also coming back for new seasons. We've picked out our highlights in what's looking like a strong showing for the streaming platform.

A Clockwork Orange
Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Antony Burgess novella of the same name is a must-watch for cinema buffs. In a dystopian future where street crime is rampant and the government becomes increasingly oppressive and authoritarian, A Clockwork Orange is the story of Alex, a sadistic teenage gang leader and classical music fan. When Alex finally falls foul of the law, he's offered a chance for freedom - if he undergoes an experimental brainwashing therapy.
Thrilling, compelling, and disturbing, A Clockwork Orange mixes black comedy, violent spectacle and social commentary with Kubrick's signature flair. Not for the faint-hearted, it remains a classic for the ages.

Kung Fu Hustle
Famous Hong Kong comedian Stephen Chow directs, writes and stars in this glorious mash-up of kung-fu Wuxia flicks and American musical stylings. A story of some petty thugs from an impoverished Canton slum that makes enemies of the notorious Axe Gang, Kung Fu Hustle is a rollicking adventure that combines kung-fu, comedy and choreography with great fight scenes and musical numbers. If you have to pick just one martial arts movie this month (and you don't, so why not watch both), this one's a little more fun than the rather serious Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.

Love, Death & Robots (Netflix Original)
Netflix has billed this original animated series as a "genre orgy" and that choice of words should tell you right off the bat, this isn't a cartoon for kids. Love, Death & Robots is a series of 18 short films (ranging from five to 15 minutes in length) created by different directors, writers and animators from around the world.
The whole project was helmed by director David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mindhunter, The Social Network) and Blur Studio, the award-winning animation company founded by Deadpool director Tim Miller. The end result promises an exciting mix (orgy, if you will) of animation styles from traditional cartoons to photorealistic CGI, and depicts us werewolves, demons, cyborgs and more in stories of sci-fi, horror, action and adventure, and comedy.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
At first, it seems like a familiar horror movie setup. A bunch of college kids head to a forest in West Virginia to party, and on their way to the vacation location they encounter some suspicious hillbillies at the gas station. It turns out they'll be seeing each other again, and become locked in a struggle for survival. Sounds familiar, except...
...in this horror/comedy movie, the college kids are not the protagonists fighting for their lives. It's Tucker and Dale, the aforementioned hillbillies, who due to a series of misunderstandings, end up in the role of the creepy rural horror villains, despite their best intentions. But the pair will still have to do their best...against EVIL.

Naturally, we're always up for a story that explores the problematic ramifications of futuristic technology, especially that of AI. With Black Mirror taking a lull after Bandersnatch, this Netflix Original from France can serve up your fix of techno-dystopian nightmare fuel.
Set in near-futuristic Paris, Osmosis is the story of several young Parisians who sign up to a beta for an experimental dating app designed to pair up soul mates by collecting data from their brain. As you might imagine, there's a dark side to dating this way.
