There’s plenty to watch this New Year’s Day.

Looking to kick off 2022 on a fun note? Why not relax on the sofa with one of these new additions to Netflix.

Here’s a list of the most recent movies to hit the streamer.


This 2019 adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical was rightly panned when it came out on account of its garish visuals and unintentionally creepy cat design, with some considering it the worst movie ever made.

All that said, the film truly does need to be seen to be believed, at least to understand what all the fuss is about.


Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling lead the cast of this very watchable legal thriller.


An aimless young man (Keanu Reeves) in need of a loan agrees to coach a kids baseball team in this 2001 sports comedy.

Marie Antoinette

Writer-director Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) stylishly tells the story of Queen Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst) in the years leading up to the French Revolution.

The Naked Gun

The great Leslie Nielsen (Airplane!) stars in this hilarious spoof of police procedurals.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Another classic comedy, this time featuring the talents of John Candy and Steve Martin.

Scream 4

This may be worth a revisit as the fifth entry in the iconic slasher franchise arrives in Irish cinemas on 14 January.

Silver Linings Playbook

After a stint in a psychiatric hospital, a man (Bradley Cooper) moves back in with his parents (Jacki Weaver, Robert De Niro) and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife.

However, things get more challenging when he meets a mysterious woman (Jennifer Lawrence, in an Oscar-winning turn) that has problems of her own.

Werewolves Within

In this acclaimed video game adaptation (quite a rarity in cinema!), a group of people become trapped in a small town during a snowstorm only to suspect one of them is a werewolf.
