Netflix has again added a large load of viewing food: no fewer than twelve major cinema films can now be seen on the streaming service. We list them for you, including trailers.
The end of February is already in sight. In less than a week, Netflix will therefore start with a major cleaning round: no fewer than 28 films will disappear from the streaming service on February 28.
12 new cinema movies on Netflix
Fortunately, Netflix also added a fresh load of major cinema films to the range last week. Blockbusters that have passed on the streaming service before, or have more recently come out of the cinema. We list all twelve for you. Grab the popcorn already!
Ted is typically one of those films that, depending on your humor, turns out to be terrible or fantastic. A miracle takes place during Christmas: John’s only friend, his teddy bear from before, comes to life. Small problem: Ted, as the stuffed animal is called, is anything but cute. He is foul-mouthed and his behavior is plain inappropriate. Will John choose his childhood friend or his new girlfriend? Faint humor as you are used to from Seth MacFarlane. With that you probably know immediately whether Ted will give birth to you.
The Purge: Election Year
Should The Purge have stopped after the first movie? Certainly, but the cinema sales of the first part made the subsequent barrage of sequels inevitable, and secretly they are extremely entertaining guilty pleasures. In Election Year, Leo Barnes, who we know from the second movie, has become head of security for Senator Charlie Roan. He has one clear mission: to ensure that Roan survives the annual ritual. Horror, action and intrigue!
Jurassic Park Marathon
Call your friends, stock up on popcorn and booze and grab the agenda. It’s time for a real Jurassic Park marathon. Netflix added no fewer than four installments from the long-running franchise in mid-February. From the original 1993 Jurassic Park to 2015 Jurassic World.
Pitch Perfect Trilogy
Not a big fan of dinosaurs, but can you handle a comedy with a very sweet frosting? Then you can also plan a mini-marathon for Pitch Perfect. All three parts of the trilogy were released on Netflix last week. We follow Rebecca, played by Anna Kendrick, who is asked to join her new university’s a cappella singing group. A lot of music, school drama and thoroughly American humour. After the trailer below you will immediately know whether it is right for you.
Scent of a Woman
Time for something a little heavier viewing food, in the form of Martin Brest’s drama film Scent of a Woman. Chris O’Donnell plays Charlie, a poor college student who takes a summer job babysitting a blind ex-military, played by none other than Al Pacino. Much to Charlie’s surprise, his brand new boss takes him to New York, where the blind ex-military has big plans. Wonderful 90’s movie!
Straight Outta Compton
After Pitch Perfect we dive into a completely different music story. Straight Outta Compton tells the true story behind the legendary hip-hop group NWA Aka: Dr. Dre, Easy E, DJ Yella, MC Ren and Ice Cube. We go back to the late eighties in this biographical film. To the beginning of an important chapter in the history of hip-hop and music in general.
Making of All Quiet On The Western Front
We close with an unexpected gift from Netflix: war film All Quiet On The Western Front won a prestigious film award last weekend, the BAFTA for Best Picture, and the streaming service is celebrating with a brand new look behind the scenes. In The Making of All Quiet On The Western Front you not only get to know the cast, but you also get to see how they brought all the sets, special effects and other movie magic to life.
