Tips on How to Watch Netflix with Your Friends during Lockdown

This is a guest post written by Brad Smith

The coronavirus outbreak has made widespread social distancing necessary. In most parts of the world, authorities have ordered movie theatres, bars, restaurants, and other social spaces closed to combat the spread of the deadly virus. Residents have been forced to self-isolate and work from home where possible.

So, what can you do with all that time we have quarantining? Well, you can stay at home and binge-watch movies and TV shows on Netflix — with your friends.

That’s right. Even as you try to avoid public places and coronavirus, you can still spend some quality time with friends and loved ones as you bond over movies and TV shows on Netflix safely. Do not let the Covid-19 pandemic keep you from enjoying a good watch party with your loved ones. In this article, we look at the 5 Netflix features that elevate your streaming experience while staying at home self-isolating. Read on.

Netflix Party

A new browser extension for Google Chrome is making it possible for people to host virtual movie nights on Netflix. Netflix Party turns streaming on Netflix into a place where people can enjoy themselves as a group while separated. Friends and family can revel in their favorite movies and series on the popular streaming service without worrying about getting each other sick. It’s simple, download the extension from Google Chrome, install it, and log into your Netflix account.


Looking for a way to watch Netflix movies and TV shows as a community? Scener is another excellent option to consider. You can watch Netflix with a group of up to ten people when using Scener. This lightweight tool has you covered when it comes to virtual movie night or date night this lockdown season. Scener features HD video chat allowing you to share every moment as if you were sitting right next to each other.


TwoSeven is another great service that allows users to watch streaming content with friends and loved ones, no matter where they are in the world. With TwoSeven, you can gather as many people as you like for your watch party. The browser extension uses your webcams to facilitate live chats and real-time reactions when watching. The TwoSeven browser extension is available on both Google Chrome and Firefox.


Only available in the beta version, Metastream is a handy tool that allows people to watch streaming media with friends and family. This browser extension allows you to watch Netflix and other streaming services such as Hulu, Amazon, etc. with your friends and family as you chat in real-time. Metastream browser extension is available for Google Chrome and Firefox users.

A VPN to Unblock Restricted Content on Netflix

Last but not least, VPN. Short for Virtual Private Network, VPN is a service that offers an encrypted internet connection over public Wi-Fi networks. A VPN also hides your IP address and allows you to connect to a server in a different region effectively changing your virtual location. VPN service allows you to watch movies and TV shows that are blocked in your country. Downloading a VPN expands your library of movies and TV shows on Netflix to a great extent.

For instance, if you are a big fan of the popular British show Doctor Who (which is only available on Netflix UK), you can use your VPN to connect to a server in the UK where you will be able to access Doctor Who episodes. You can do the same for other geo-blocked Netflix TV shows and movies such as Star Trek: Discovery (available on Netflix everywhere except the United States and Canada), and Blackadder (only available on Netflix UK).

The Covid-19 epidemic has us trapped in our homes with nothing to do — in most cases. However, there are things we can do to feel less isolated as we self-isolate and practice social distancing. If you love watching movies and series on Netflix, you don’t have to do it alone. You can gather a few friends and loved ones for a movie night and watch together using these tools.

Can You Increase Your Download Speeds Without Increasing Your Bill?

Guest Post: Can You Increase Your Download Speeds Without Increasing Your Bill?

We live in a world of streaming video. Whether you’re an avid YouTube user, a Netflix buff, or a lover of classic, epic films, the only thing most of us need to be able to enjoy our favorite movies is a good internet connection.

However, as you likely know, this can be much harder to come by than it should be. Internet companies tend to over promise and under deliver, and their rates seem to just keep going up, which is frustrating, to say the least.

So if you’re getting a lot of loading and buffering screens while trying to watch movies, then it might be a good idea to consider trying to boost your speeds. But this doesn’t always mean increasing your bill.

Here’s how you can do it:

Change the Type of Internet You Have

Dedicated Service Line (DSL) internet was the first form of broadband internet ever invented, and it’s terribly out of date. The only way it can deliver a decent internet connection is if you live right next to your Internet Service Provider’s (ISP’s) service center, which isn’t likely.

Satellite is another internet type you should try to avoid. It’s only benefit is that it can provide a connection to remote areas, but connection speeds tend to be rather slow.

Your best options are going to be cable and fiber optic internet. The speeds these connection types offer can get you way past 30 Mbps, which is what you need for easy streaming.

If you don’t have cable or fiber optic internet, then you can likely switch without having to increase your current bill.

Telecommunications companies are always running promotions to get people to sign up for their service, and this usually means you can get a low rate for switching.

It’s true they may try to jack the price up after a certain period of time, so you’ll need to remain vigilant to make sure you don’t get stuck with a hefty bill in a year’s time. But meanwhile, this can be a great way to boost internet speeds without having to incur an additional expense.

Check Your Equipment

While you may be paying for a super fast connection, this won’t matter if your equipment is out of date.

The first thing you will want to do is check the equipment provided by your ISP, mainly your modem.

They don’t make it a habit of checking up on you to see that you have the most updated gear, but they will often replace it for little or no charge since old hardware can have an effect on the speeds they are allowed to deliver across the network.

After you’ve checked your modem, take a look at your router. Most of us access the internet through WiFi because, let’s face it, it’s awesome.

However, routers are made to handle the connection speeds of their day, and things are almost always getting faster.

As a result, if you bought your router five years ago, there’s a good chance it can’t handle the speed currently being delivered through your connection.

There should be something on the router that tells you its capabilities. Compare this to what your ISP is promising, and if there is a major difference, consider investing in a new router.

Doing this is better than upgrading your connection because it’s a one-time cost. A good router will cost you around $60, but it will get you much faster internet.

Consider Going Old School

If you think the problem is your router but you don’t want to spend the money on a new one, then one alternative is to go old school and plug your device in using an ethernet cord.

Connections delivered over the cord do tend to be faster, and this won’t cost you a thing, unless of course, you need to buy a cable, which won’t run you more than just $20.

A good in-between solution is to only use your ethernet cable when streaming or doing other types of intense internet use, such as gaming. This way you won’t suck up all of the router’s bandwidth, allowing for faster speeds on your other devices.

If you’re not sure if things are faster, then use this tool to determine the actual speed you’re getting from your ISP.

Monitor Apps

One other thing you can do is to check your devices to make sure there are no apps running in the background that are connected to the internet. These apps will use up bandwidth, which will result in slower internet connections when you most need them.


One last thing you can do is to get on the phone with your ISP and start negotiating. Spend some time researching alternatives, and don’t be afraid to threaten canceling your service and going with a competitor.

This is a telecommunications company’s biggest fear, and they will often work with you to get you better value if the only other alternative is to lose you.


If you try all of these things and your internet connection doesn’t speed up, then it’s possible that you may need to upgrade your service.

High-quality streaming requires between 10-30 Mbps of internet speed. If you’re not getting this even after implementing all the above hacks, then start shopping around for alternatives.

But even this doesn’t mean raising your bill. More competition in the market means better prices and better service. Now it’s just time to take advantage of it!

About the Author: Kevin is the founder of Broadband Search, which is an online platform designed to help people find the best value high-speed internet in their area. He’s a big movie and music person, and he hates when slow internet keeps him from streaming. As a result, he’s made it his life’s mission to make sure no one has to deal with slow internet.

Therefore, she chooses to walk alone for more than thousands of miles. Sometimes we get into some situations from which it is always very hard to get out, and at that time all we should do is to spend quality time with ourselves by going on a solo journey. If you haven’t seen this movie, then you have probably missed one of the best traveling movies of all time.

This film is based on the real story of two friends Ernesto Guevara (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Alberto Granado who went on road journey across the South America during 1950’s.

Lost In Translation

Lost in translation tells us the story of Bob Harris (Bill Murray) an American actor, who has come to Tokyo to film a commercial. Staying in the same hotel is Charlotte, a newlywed woman who gets neglected by her photographer husband. In the meantime, both Bob and Charlotte spend their productive time to getting to know each other’s problem. Lost in translation shows us that even if we are living in the major cities, we find ourselves lonely and if you are going through that condition then you should try to watch this film.

It is the movie which will inspire you in a lot of ways. Sometimes we don’t know who we are and what we want to be for the rest of our life and this is the reason why Christopher McCandless went to Alaska alone.

Guest Post: How to Watch Anything, Anywhere

About the Author: Caroline is an internet security and entertainment specialist. While at first glance, these things might not appear to go together, they frequently overlap. To see how this plays out, check out her article on about how to watch American Netflix.

There’s nothing more bothersome than not being able to watch what you want, when you want. Nearly everyone has encountered a time when they’ve stumbled upon a blocked video here or there or found that they can’t find any good movies playing on TV when they’re ready to kick back and relax to a great film. Thankfully, has been kind enough to allow me to share some tips so you too can watch anything, anywhere. Before you begin watching, don’t forget to check out these reviews of some of these must-watch movies.

It’s not always easy to be able to find a good selection of movies or TV shows to watch when you’re traveling. But with tablets and smartphones getting larger, the ability to watch videos while on the go is becoming more sought after. Unfortunately for some travelers, their options may be really limited, mobile device or not.

Most streaming services use geo-restriction, meaning that you may not be able to access every video they have to offer, especially if you’re traveling outside of the country. With services like Netflix, the selection is often specific to the country you live in, and up until recently, they didn’t even allow anyone to use their services outside of the United States.

So how can you watch anything, anywhere, bypassing geo-restrictions when necessary?

A Virtual Private Network

The key to getting past those geo-restrictions is a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is a remote server that encrypts your internet connection and hides your IP address (which is used to determine your location). By using a VPN service, you can select from a list of different locations and connect to the server located in that particular area.

When online, you will appear as though you’re located where the remote server is, allowing you to unblock geo-restricted content. For example, if you want to watch American Netflix, you’ll simply connect to one of the servers located in the United States before you access Netflix’s site. The same goes for any other website that you might want to unblock.

An additional bonus to using a VPN service is that not only will it allow you to watch videos that would typically be blocked, but it’ll also secure your connection while doing so and allow you to protect your privacy while using the internet.


There are several streaming services available that can be accessed on your mobile devices so chances are you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for on one of them. You can also use some of them on your game consoles or smart TV. Netflix is arguably one of the best services for streaming movies, and for a low price, it’s worth subscribing to. You’re able to watch in high definition with closed captions (if you prefer), and it’s entirely commercial free.

They also have a wide selection of movies, categorizing them into genres and subgenres so you can easily find a move that you’re in the mood for. Netflix also has some TV series on hand, though it’s unlikely you’ll find the most recent episodes (Hulu is a better option for that). Like most streaming services though, the content varies, and it changes regularly.

There are other options than Netflix for streaming too, many of which are also affordable and worthwhile.


Like Netflix, Hulu can be used on a variety of different devices. Their price is similar, but unlike Netflix, they haven’t decided to provide services to any countries other than the United States and Japan. You’ll still need a VPN for Hulu if you live outside of their service areas, but the library of movies they offer to their subscribers is rather impressive considering that they didn’t have many to offer in the past.

Hulu is especially useful for those who would like to keep up with TV shows though, as they have episodes of some series available the day after they premiere on cable TV.


YouTube has a variety of movies you can watch from your mobile device, and their app makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. You can also access YouTube on game consoles and smart TVs, making it a good option for streaming. Movies are available; though many of them will require you pay to view them.

On a lucky occasion, you might be able to find a couple of movies to stream for free on YouTube, though they generally try to remove those. Overall, it’s still worth searching through, and it offers some original content that’s sure to entertain you when you don’t quite have enough time to watch an entire movie.


There’s also Flixpack, a relatively new service that allows you read and share reviews about films and discover things you might not otherwise watch. It’s a great place to find links to stream free stuff on YouTube or Vimeo (complete with the reviews, of course). Their content encompasses mostly Indian and English movies and had more selections than you can imagine, so check it out.

Other Options

There are, of course, many other streaming services available too, some of which you might already have access to! If you subscribe to cable TV, your service provider might offer online streaming from their website or an app on your mobile device.

Though Netflix, Hulu and YouTube are some of the most popular around the globe (despite their restrictions), why not access as much of a variety as possible? Hulu will, of course, be a great place to stream American films and TV shows, but if you’re looking for other movies, this list of streaming services is likely to be helpful.

Watching anything, anywhere can be somewhat of a challenge at times, but with a little searching, you’re certain to find what you’re looking for. Best of all, you will be able to access the whole internet if you use a VPN service (so you won’t have to stick to censored material or limit your viewing options). With a smartphone or tablet on hand and the right tools, you’ll be on your way to watching anything, anywhere in no time!

Do you have a favorite streaming service that you use to watch movies on the go? Let us know about it in the comments section.

When the trailer of Sarbjit was released, people were really excited to know about the life of an unfortunate Punjabi who drunkenly ambled across his field to cross the Indo-Pak border which lead into his dreadful journey of torture and death. While the audience expected to see his ‘Jai Jai Shiv Shankar’ song transform into blood cuddling cries and whines, the movie showcased his sister’s character more often. Even the poster had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead and the expected main lead, Randeep Hooda, was shown in her shadows.

Sarbjit was ruthlessly beaten and tortured after being caught by the Pakistani police force who suspected him of being an Indian terrorist named Ranjit. He was drowned in water, left in a room full of rats who scrawled all over him, locked in a box and many more unspeakable acts of torture were done to him. While he was suffering in the prison, his sister Dalbir (Aishwarya) and wife Sukh (Richa Chaddha) struggled to get him back to India. Both of their efforts went in vain when officials of both countries did not pay much heed to their demands. The result being, an innocent Indian subjected to numerous mental and physical tortures and finally a merciless death.

Randeep’s performance is the sole thing that might make the movie ‘paisa vasool’. But less spotlight on him and more on Aish has lead into poor collections of the movie. The acting of the all the three leads is appreciable. The sorrow and pain in Sarbjit’s character was beautifully portrayed by Randeep and Aish and Sukh successfully managed to illustrate the pain of hopeful loved ones wishing to see their beloved brother and husband beautifully. The makeup and costumes were also up to the mark. The songs of the movie were soothing and appropriate for the storyline. Overall it is a good watch.

Top 5 Bollywood movies from 2015

This article is written by Vinod Kardam, a frequent visitor to Raja Reviews

The year 2015 was empowering for Indian silver screen. Despite the fact that the lamentable “money over-content” came first, groups of onlookers were dealt with to a couple remarkable motion pictures. The greater part of them figured out how to rake in millions, alongside basic recognition.

Here are the main five Bollywood movies of 2015:



In the event that there is one film which in today’s day and age is really reminiscent of yesteryear’s late Hrishikesh Mukherjee brand of silver screen, it must be Piku. This little, unassuming film figured out how to strike the right harmonies and stunned groups of onlookers and pundits alike. Bengali generalizations are both made utilization of and in addition subverted, yet it is the tender treatment and the cast’s irresistible eagerness that wins over even the most negative of viewers. You can watch the best movies and get great discount using PVR coupons.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Discuss conveying technique to frenzy to deliver fabulousness. Bollywood star Salman Khan is one of those Indian stars who simply should be in the film for it to make millions. Subsequently, things like story, screenplay, and rationale and so on get to be optional. In any case, chief Kabir Khan stepped by throwing the most loved of the masses in a part which is exceptionally not at all like his on-screen persona. Effectively consolidating content with business, Bajrangi Bhaijaan ended up being one of the greatest hits of 2015 furthermore of Salman Khan’s vocation. You can use bookmyshow offer for getting great discounts.



The current year’s sleeper hit, Talvar was a film nobody saw coming. Very little was normal from this calm undertaking which most thought to be a workmanship house motion picture of sorts. The film did not open to pressed theaters (absence of exposure, advancements and a major star cast) yet got over verbal. Coordinated by MeghnaGulzar, the film, in light of genuine occasions around a disputable Indian murder case – 2008 Noida twofold murder case – ended up being a fresh, chilling and drawing in watch which, throughout the following couple of weeks of its discharge, got the thankfulness and honors it merited. [A showstopper scene in the film: The over the-table examination between the two distinctive investigative groups, towards the end of the film. No big surprise, then, that a request to revive the case and free the folks spread like fierce blaze not long after its discharge. Be that as it may, regardless of the lopsidedness, Talvar is a fine class film that works surprisingly better on the off chance that you consider it unadulterated fiction.

Bajirao Mastani

A standout amongst the most shocking period dramatizations to have left Bollywood ever – BajiraoMastani is film taking care of business. It’s one of those motion pictures where all the distinctive components of filmmaking – story, music, sets, cinematography, ensembles, course and exhibitions – meet up splendidly to make something essential on screen. An extraordinary notice for Ranveer Singh’s brain inspiring and kickass depiction of the Maratha warrior Bajirao. Keep them coming!



A great many people may feel in an unexpected way, however Tamasha, regardless of its defects, unquestionably merits a spot in this rundown – for the most part due to the intricate way of its subject and the way it has been taken care of by pro chief Imtiaz Ali. Ranbir Kapoor quieted faultfinders with a force pressed execution and greatly required hit. In any case, DeepikaPadukone was the genuine champ here as she figured out how to play a part not that substantial and transform it into one of her most charming characters ever.

Guest Post: Aligarh Review

Guest Post: Aligarh Review

Guest Post – This review is written by Ritu Verma working as part of PngFever

The movie Aligarh is all about the lonely life of a homosexual person in this society. Siras is the main character which is being played by Manoj Bajpayee. This movie would definitely question us our morals and our reactions to other’s sexual needs which wouldn’t match with your own or you would think is not right. If any film that makes you think twice before giving final responses after having watched would be a great film for sure.

The story was taken from a heart breaking and true story of Professor Ramchandra Siras who in the year 2010 was forced to leave from the Aligarh Muslim University after getting caught involving in the sexual activity with a male rickshaw puller. He was trying to have physical relationship with that male rickshaw puller.

The movie gives the strong message to the Society to changes their mind sets about the homosexual persons. This type of person should be treated with respect and they are not different from all of us. They are the part of our society as well and not different from anyone.

The movie Aligarh is like a jugalbandi between a man of nervous energy and man of stillness. Rajkummar Rao essays the journalist Deepu Sebastian role and Manoj Bajpayee plays Dr. Siras role. The movie is a completely unique step in reality cinema which uses actual places and people involved in the real incident. The film shows the psyche and personality of Siras. It also considers his inner life: his advancing age, loneliness and the humiliation and betrayal in his life.

Aligarh movie is worth watching and surely change your thinking regarding Homo Sexual person. After watching it, you would be able to think about them in a different way for sure.

Tanu weds Manu returns movie needs no introduction! And there are high chances that you have already watched this spectacular movie. It is a sequel to film ‘Tanu weds Manu’. The film shows how their wedding has fallen apart after 4 years when they can’t find any reason to love each other. Their expectations have been crushed and life seems still when a twist catches up. Here are 7 reasons as to why this movie is a super duper hit:

1) Kangana Ranaut

This one is not even a guess! The queen stepped down which made even the little flaws of this movie invisible. She gave an impeccable performance in her previous movie “Queen” which floored every viewer of that movie. She even won a national award for it. In this film, she has done double roles and has wooed everyone with her outstanding acting skills. It will be hard for you to even believe that both the pole-apart roles have been performed by a single lady. It’s still not late if you haven’t seen this movie.

2) Brilliant star cast

Apart from Kangana Ranaut, this movie has power packed performances from R.Madhavan, Jimmy Shergill, Deepak Dobriyal, Eijaz Khan and Swara Bhaskar. R.Madhavan has a big fan following in Bollywood and it will be a delight to watch him as due to his other films commitment in Tollywood, he rarely signs for Bollywood films.

3) Unusual Chemistry

The Jodi of Kangana Ranaut and R.Madhavan is unusual yet a charming one. Kangana Ranaut performs this vivacious character while Madhavan plays a subdued role. Opposites attract and this is what makes this pairing a hit.

4) Hottest ethnic trends

Ditch those long length kurtis and sport short ones. Kangana Ranaut has sported the newest traditional as well as fusion of Indian and cultural wear in this movie. And she looks like a dream in every outfit.

5) Attention gripping music

The sound tracks of ‘Tanu weds Manu returns’ have already climbed the chartbusters and viewed like a million times. “Ghani Bawri” is a super hit. It has been sung by Jyoti Naroon and the lyrics have been written by Raj Shekhar. Most of its songs are foot-tapping.

6) Endearing plot

The storyline of the movie is pretty simple and something you can relate with your everyday life if you are married. This catches the attention of audience more as they find the dialogues as well as locations similar to their life. There’s nothing hard to digest here which lends it a touch of simplicity.

7) Anand L Rai

The movie has been directed by “Anand L Rai” who delivered other hits like ‘Raanjhana’ and ‘Tanu weds Manu’. Both of the movies were enjoyed by audiences and it will be an under-statement to say that same expectations are riding from this romance comedy movie.

His blog Divine Epic is a running fiction on faith, belief and hope. He also runs a general blog The Tea Cerebration and travel blog The Viator.

There was a time when Dracula should have been a pseudonym for vampire, but that has obviously changed. There has always been Carmilla, Lord Ruthven and Varney the Vampire, but none of them had anything too different from the most well-known vampire of all time. Dracula has been a character beyond all cultures, and not defined by any limitation with its reach for the admirers. But a variation was inevitable, and one of the most significant changes came with three vampires which Anne Rice had invented and was brought to the big screen through Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst – Louis, Lestat and Claudia.

That takes us to the movie Interview with the Vampire, one of the most impressive vampire movies of all time. One has to admit that it has brought more than a few thousands of new vampire fans. There was conscience, there was the presence of thoughts, and there was a rare breed of philosophical vampires. The vampires were no longer declared without a soul or without the scope for being good. The state of damnation was present, but their existence was not necessarily pure evil, but defined by their actions which were the result of the myriads of thoughts. It was a beginning of a change, something which seemed fair in the beginning, only to be destroyed by the movie Queen of the Damned based on the works of the same writer.

This was part of fertile grounds, and on the same, Vampire Journals made an appearance. This lesser known movie has a similar situation, with “a vampire with a mortal heart” as our protagonist calls himself as he goes on to destroy the bloodline of the one who created him. This is another intense movie which follows somewhat the same path as Interview with the Vampire. The next impressive vampire movie came much later in the form of Byzantium (even as the Underworld movies did have their merits), but between them, there were movies which made a mockery of the vampire legacy, those which I would call “the ghosts of vampires”.

Among those ghosts, the most popular and the prominent ones belong to Twilight, displaying its vampires as mutant-like creatures with superpowers, only retaining that taste for blood. Their existence itself making no sense at all, sparkling in sunlight is one of the most disastrous qualities that a vampire character could have ever been given, and the addition of the protagonist Isabella Swan to the vampires list only devastates the already existing list of shame, while the werewolf side and the ending in the final part of the movie, are better left untold. My question about it is that couldn’t these creatures been something else other than vampires? What was The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones doing with its vampires? Depressing.

It is not that the vampire can’t be depicted as part of the modern life, because Fright Night could achieve that so well. But the question remains about the impact that the vampires could bring a long time ago. But that doesn’t exist anymore, as the vampires are no longer of the power that they once had, as they have becomes the “ghosts of their self”, the shadows of themselves. The good about them which were obviously “the bad” no longer has that much of a role to play, and vampires, with too much of humanity becomes no longer themselves, but ghosts of vampires. Their undead existence itself is denied, and due to which, they can no longer the same.
