Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
As we’ve entered an extended period of ‘lockdown’ due to Coronavirus Covid-19 you may be wondering what to watch on Netflix – well, wonder no longer! Here at New On Netflix we’ve put together a list of what we (with the help of our social media users) think are the best things that have been added to Netflix UK this week.
For films this week we have Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth, which sees a mercenary in a race to survive after being sent to Bangladesh to rescue a drug lord’s kidnapped son. Time to Hunt is set in near future Korea, where a financial crisis has hit hard causing slums to be created. A group of young criminals plan a money heist to raise the money they need to leave the slums for paradise. In the Spanish film The Silence of the Marsh a writer of crime stories discovers that reality is more criminal than the stories he writes. Whilst in the Polish film The Plagues of Breslau a serial killer strikes every night at 6pm, and after the body of one of the victims is found sewn into the hide of a cow, a Wrocław detective discovers the killer is recreating an 18th-century “plague” of criminal punishments. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is also a popular addition this wek.
For TV this week we have Cooked with Cannabis which sees chefs compete to get the hosts and special guests high on elevated cannabis cuisine with their artful use of leafy herb, THC infusions and CBD sauces. The anime action series Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is set after a global financial crisis, where the world is engulfed in an AI-driven “sustainable war” and it’s up to Section 9 to counter the new forms of cyber threats. In the Turkish coming of age series Love 101 four misfits and a model student find friendship while trying to make their teacher fall for a basketball coach. In the comedy series Middleditch & Schwartz Comedy duo Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz turn small ideas into epically funny stories. Finally for TV this week we have The Midnight Gospel which is a trippy, animated series from the creators of Adventure Time, that sees a space caster explore existential questions about life, death and everything in between while travelling between worlds in his malfunctioning multiverse simulator. There’s also season 2 of After Life as well as season 5 of Peaky Blinders.
For documentaries we have Circus of Books which tells of the Jewish couple that have run Circus of Books, a porn shop and epicenter for gay LA for the last four decades. In Catfish young filmmakers document their colleague’s budding online friendship with a young woman and her family which leads to an unexpected series of discoveries. Absurd Planet is a funny science series that offers an inside look into the lives of the planet’s most intriguing animals, with narration provided by a cast of quirky animal creatures, as well as Mother Nature herself. The Last Dance gives a definitive account of Michael Jordan’s career and the 1990s Chicago Bulls,through weekly episodes that include unaired footage from the 1997-98 season. Finally for documentaries this week we have season three of The Story of God with Morgan Freeman.
For kids this week we have Space Jam which sees Bugs Bunny and his pals coax Michael Jordan out of retirement to play in a basketball game against a team of monstrous aliens to win their freedom. The animated comedy The Willoughbys sees the Willoughby children who are convinced that they’d be better off raising themselves hatch a sneaky plan to send their selfish parents on vacation. The siblings then embark on their own high-flying adventure to find the true meaning of family. Finally for kids this week we have season two of Hello Ninja which sees BFFs Wesley and Georgie and their silly cat sidekick Pretzel transform into ninjas and enter a magic world, where they solve problems and save the day.
