Netflix has quietly added 26 very big movies to its library
Netflix have given us LOADS of movies to check out and some of them are properly fantastic.
If you're a Netflix subscriber, you'll be happy to hear that the streaming service has added loads of huge movies to its library recently. We've rounded up the 26 best, worst, most average for you to choose from...
30 MINUTES OR LESS
Jesse Eisenberg is a pizza delivery man who has a bomb strapped to his chest and ordered to rob a bank or kidnappers will kill his best friend. A comedy-action-thriller from the minds behind Zombieland and Deadpool.
Netflix has re-added one of the best thrillers of the last decade. Read all about that right here.
What if young boy Superman was evil instead of good? That is what this dark horror looks into, and while it doesn't exactly stick the landing, it does have some decent set pieces.
A very entertaining, Tarantino-esque action thriller set within the confines of a police station. Check out our interview with Gerard Butler and Alexis Louder about the movie right here:
THE ELECTRICAL LIFE OF LOUIS WAIN
Benedict Cumberbatch headlines this romantic drama about an genius who becomes famous for his paintings of a cat. It is more interesting than that synopsis makes it sound.
The Ben Affleck version is saved by Colin Farrell's absolutely unhinged performance as the villainous Bullseye.
DEAR EVAN HANSEN
A now legendary flop musical, with a great cast, but the whole thing is just too weird to be likeable. A must-watch, but not for a good reason.
Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried attempt to capture the magic of The Notebook in their rom-dram, but mostly fail.
The folks behind Wallace & Gromit bring us this fun stop-motion animated comedy.
THE FIRST WIVES CLUB
A camp cult classic, with Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton as recently divorced wives who decide to unite and get revenge on their exes.
Netflix had added this ruthless true story about the origins of fast food chain McDonalds. Read all about that right here.
The family of Egon Spengler move into his abandoned, isolated home after he passed away, only to discover he was fighting nearby ghosts until his last days. We chatted to Paul Rudd about the supernatural comedy, and you can check out that interview in full right here:
With the sequel very much on the way (read more about that right here), why not go back and check out the brilliant Russell Crowe-fronted original.
The middle entry in the recent Halloween trilogy goes heavy on the kills. Check out our interview with Jamie Lee Curtis about the movie right here:
HEART OF STONE
This Netflix exclusive sees Gal Gadot kick start her own Mission Impossible-esque franchise. Check out our chats with Gadot and her co-stars right here:
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM
Another middle entry in a recent rebooted trilogy, this blockbuster outing sees the dinosaurs being saved from a volcanic island, only to be sold into private ownership. We chatted to Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard about the sequel, and you can watch that interview right here:
The Joss Whedon version, not the the Zack Snyder version. We chatted to Superman himself (aka Henry Cavill) about the movie at the time:
LOVE THE COOPERS
Also known as Christmas With The Coopers, this festive com-dram features an impressive cast (Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Jake Lacy, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, Marisa Tomei, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Wilde, Steve Martin) but only 18% on Rotten Tomatoes.
A fun animated comedy with some decent voice performances by Chris Rock and David Schwimmer.
MEN IN BLACK
Still one of the best summer blockbusters ever, doing for extraterrestrials what Ghostbusters did for the paranormal. Netflix has also added Men In Black 3, but not MIB2, but that was the crap one, so no great loss there.
The fun acapella comedy has also had its sequel Pitch Perfect 2 added to the library, and Pitch Perfect 3 was already on there, so happy days for big PP fans!
Penn Badgley and Amber Heard star in this dumb thriller with 13% on Rotten Tomatoes. Avoid.
A man (Mark Wahlberg) and his living teddy bear (voiced by Seth McFarlane) are BFFs, but is it stopping him from growing up? Short answer: Yes. Netflix has also added Ted 2 to their library, but that one wasn't as good as the original.
