With how vast the entertainment industry is, it’s easy to forget that there are tonnes of good movies produced locally. These movies cater to our Malaysian spirit – with plots, contexts and languages that remind us of home. And thankfully, Netflix Malaysia has embraced the streaming of locally made movies. Heck, they’ve even introduced Bahasa subtitles! But other than big movies like ‘Paskal’ and ‘Revenge of the Pontianak’, Netflix actually has some solid Malaysian movies that you may have missed! And with Malaysia day coming up, this may be the best time to kick up your feet and enjoy some of the local talents!
