Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
The most popular addition this week has been the 2017 monster flick Kong: Skull Island – a part of the ‘MonsterVerse’ film series along with GodZilla. The film follows a team of scientists as they head to an unchartered island that just happens to be the domain of the giant primate King Kong. Arctic follows a stranded pilot in an Arctic wasteland after his plane crashes must risk everything to help another gravely injured survivor reach safety in time. A new Netflix film Dolemite Is My Name, starring Eddie Murphy, is set in 1970s LA and is a biopic of struggling comedian Rudy Ray Moore who invents his raunchy alter ego, Dolemite, then risks it all to take his act to the big screen. Keanu Reeves stars as a neuroscientist in Replicas – after his family are killed in an accident he tries to bring them back to life in a controversial cloning experiment. For something a bit more lighthearted, the comedy film Daddy’s Home 2 sees the blissful co-parenting groove of dads Brad and Dusty being disrupted by a Christmas visit from their fathers: one a macho man, the other a softie.
As it’s almost halloween there are a few new horrors to watch too: Rattlesnake: after getting help from a mysterious woman to save her daughter from a deadly snakebite, a mother must repay the debt by killing a stranger before the day ends; Revenge of the Pontianak: a scorned vampire ghost attends a wedding in order to settle a secret score with the groom; An Affair to Die For: a couple having an affair get blackmailed while away on a secret getaway and end up in a fight for their survival.
TV additions this week are mostly Netflix Originals – the most popular being Daybreak. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the new post-apocalyptic, dark-comedy series follows a slacker strives to find the girl of his dreams while outwitting mindless ghouls and cliquish gangs. It’s the beginning of the end for BoJack Horseman as the first half of season 6, the show’s final season, sees him in rehab looking at his life choices over the years. Season 2 of The Kominsky Method stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as two actors navigating the ups and downs of growing old.
Steven Fry narrates a new natural history documentary Dancing with the Birds which gives a fascinating insight into the lives of a number of birds of paradise. In Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner celebrity chef David Chang travels the world with his friends to discuss various food styles and cultures. If you like seeing various baking fails then there are two new editions of Nailed It! with both Nailed It! France and Nailed It! Spain now available. And, finally for TV this week there’s a new prank show from Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo as the host of the horror-themed show.
