This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (20th April 2018)

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:

What a brilliant week it has been for additions to Netflix UK, with a good mix being added for the whole family, so without further ado here are my top picks for the week.

We couldn’t do top picks this week without mentioning the massive amount of the Monty Python catalogue which has been added. There are the classic films Monty Python’s Life of Brian and my personal favourite from the additions Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There is also Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go which was filmed at the O2 arena in London and the behind the scenes documentary which accompanies it Monty Python: The Meaning of Live. Obviously, there is Monty Python’s Flying Circus, but for something completely different there is Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus which is Monty Python’s Flying circus in German.

It has also been a good week for movies with the additions of Alice Through the Looking Glass which sees Alice return to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to help the Mad Hatter. Financial TV host Lee Gates and his producer Patty are put in an extreme situation when an irate investor takes them and their crew as hostage in Money MonsterKodachrome, which is set during the final days of the admired photo development system of the same name, sees a father and son hit the road in order to reach the last photo lab that can process Kodachrome, which happens to be in Kansas, before it closes its doors for good.

And finally for younger Netfix fans this week we have four movies based on Mattel’s popular toy doll ranges Monster High and Barbie. Monster High 13 Wishes – it’s a new school year at Monster High! Howleen’s dream of popularity becomes a possibility when she stumbles upon a genie who grants her not 3, but 13 wishes! What could possibly go wrong? In Monster High: Frights, Camera, Action! when Draculaura is led to believe she’s the rightful heir to the vampire throne, she and her best ghoulfriends are whisked away to Transylvania for a royal coronation to die for. But they soon discover the hunt for the queen is not over yet. Barbie in Princess Power where, one day, after being kissed by a magical butterfly, Kara soon discovers she has amazing super powers allowing her to transform into Super Sparkle, her secret, crime-fighting alter ego who flies around the kingdom ready to save the day! Barbie of Swan Lake sees Barbie come to life in this animated movie, based on the beloved fairy tale and set to the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky. Finally for the really young ones we have new episodes of Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood a pre-school show which through the experiences of Daniel and his friends aims to validate the emotions that children experience, such as disappointment, sadness, frustration, and joy, before demonstrating age-appropriate techniques for dealing with them.

Other popular movies of note this week include: Lake PlacidNational Lampoon’s Animal House and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
