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:
If you’re looking for a film or two to watch this weekend why not try Room in Rome which sees two women meet and experience sensual and emotional fulfilment during a steamy encounter in a hotel room where they share secrets as well as sex. Gotti is a film based on the life of one of New Yorks most powerful mafia kingpins John Gotti. If horror films are your thing then Awaken the Shadowman might be for you – this film sees a man returns to his sleepy hometown after hi mother dies and where an ominous, supernatural force targets his family and locals. The Dirt is a comedy biopic based on Mötley Crüe’s best-selling book, four LA misfits navigate the monster highs and savage lows of music superstardom. Finally for films we have Blind where years after losing his wife and his eyesight in a car crash, a novelist finds new passion for life in an affair with an unhappily married socialite. Boyhood and A Cure for Wellness have both returned to Netflix UK this week too.
If superhero films are your thing then we have offerings from both the MCU and the DCU with Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Suicide Squad all being added this week. In Ant-Man Scott Lang, a paroled thief, steals a suit that can shrink him to insect-size with superhuman strength, but a rival uses the same technology as a weapon of war. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 sees the ragtag, wisecracking band of miscreants return to unravel the mystery of Peter “Star Lord” Quill’s origins. Whilst in DC’s Suicide Squad a secret government official releases the world’s worst super villains from prison to have them stop an impending apocalypse in exchange for freedom.
For those looking for TV series to binge this week we have the reality TV show Selling Sunset which follows the elite real estate brokers at The Oppenheim Group who sell the luxe life to affluent buyers in LA. In Delhi Crime the Indian city reels in the aftermath of a gang rape, DCP Vartika Chaturvedi leads a painstaking search for the culprits – the series is based on the 2012 Nirbhaya case. Finally for TV this week we have Part 2 of Netflix original The OA.
The pick of the documentaries that were added this week include Social Animals which follows a trio of teens, a daredevil photographer, an aspiring model and a lonely Ohio girl and shows Instagram’s impact on their lives. In ReMastered: The Miami Showband Massacre one survivor doggedly pursues the truth of the killing of three members of the Miami Showband which sent shock waves across Ireland in 1975.
There have been quite a few non-english additions this week including Japanese drama My Husband Won’t Fit where Kumiko and Kenichi meet in college and build a happy marriage together, but over time, an unusual problem threatens to destroy their relationship. Another Japanese addition this week is Stay Tuned! a comedy based on the anime series about an eccentric news reporter. Green Door is a Taiwanese drama about a troubled psychologist who returns from the U.S. and sets up a clinic in Taiwan, where mysterious patients and uncanny events shed light on his murky past. Kuwaiti drama February 9 tells the story of a psychology professor who faces Alzheimer’s, as his daughter and her three close female friends experience romance, marriage, heartbreak and tragedy.
For the younger Netflix users this week we have new episodes of the Angry Birds cartoon series and also Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures where you can get to know Barbie and her best friends including next-door neighbour Ken in an animated vlog of adventures filmed inside her family’s new dreamhouse.
