But if you've already checked all of those out, then maybe you'll find something of interest in the 30 big movies that Netflix has just added to its library, starting with...

THE 5TH WAVE

Chloe Grace Moretz headlines this YA adaptation that was hoping to be the next Hunger Games. 16% on Rotten Tomatoes. You will notice there was never a 6th Wave movie.

ARRIVAL

One of the best sci-fi movies ever made, with Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner attempting to make contact with a fleet of mysterious vessels that have appeared all over the planet.

THE DICTATOR

Sasha Baron Cohen pivoted from reality comedy to scripted comedy. It didn't work out.

THE FINAL DESTINATION

The confusingly-titled fourth entry in the series about predicted deaths, this one based around a huge crash at a car race.

FOOTLOOSE

The 2011 remake of the 1984 original. It's actually pretty good.

FRIDAY THE 13TH

The 2009 remake of the 1980 original. It's actually pretty bad.

GOOSEBUMPS / GOOSEBUMPS 2

Jack Black fronts the first one, it's perfectly entertaining. He only does a brief cameo in the second one, and it is about half as good.

HALLOWEEN II

The 2009 remake sequel, not the original 1981 sequel (This is getting confusing). Rob Zombie writes and directs this one. It is very violent. But it isn't very good.

HELP

Jodie Comer and Stephen Graham star in this tense drama about a health care assistant and a patient who have their lives turned upside by the arrival of Covid-19.

HOOK

Spielberg directs Robin Williams as a much older Peter Pan, while Dustin Hoffman steals every scene he's in as an OTT Captain Hook.

HOPE SPRINGS

Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carrell star in this likeable rom-com.

I, FRANKENSTEIN

What if Frankenstein was sexy and had a six-pack? That is the question posed by this terrible action-horror fronted by Aaron Eckhart.

THE KARATE KID / PART II / PART III / THE NEXT KARATE KID / THE KARATE KID

All of them. The three originals. The Hilary Swank reboot. And the Jaden Smith remake. They're all here!

MONSTER HOUSE

A very good spooky movie for the whole family to enjoy.

MR. BEAN'S HOLIDAY

10 years after Bean was a massive box office success, this very average sequel was also a big hit with fans of Rowan Atkinson.

THE NET

Before anyone really understood what the internet really was, Sandra Bullock starred in this thriller about a systems analyst who has her life turned upside down when she happens across something online she probably shouldn't have seen.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2 & 3

These are two of the better entries in the PA series, before it sequelised itself into oblivion.

PIXIE

An Irish road-trip comedy drama, with House of the Dragon star Olivia Cooke on the run with two best friends (Ben Hardy, Daryl McCormack) after a heist gone wrong. Colm Meaney and Alec Baldwin also co-star.

PRIMAL FEAR

Richard Gere and a young Edward Norton star in this gripping legal thriller.

SING

A very impressive voice cast fill out the ranks in this incredibly charming animated musical comedy.

SLEEPY HOLLOW

Tim Burton directs Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci in this old-school horror about a town apparently being haunted by a headless horseman.

SPIRIT: STALLION OF THE CIMARRON

A pretty good movie about a horse (inner monologue voiced by Matt Damon) and its life set during the American Indian Wars.

SPY KIDS 2: THE ISLAND OF LOST DREAMS

Dodgy title aside, this is actually pretty good (75% on Rotten Tomatoes) if you're looking for something to distract the younger viewers for 100 minutes or so.

YEAR ONE

This Jack Black and Michael Cera flick was the last movie directed by Harold Ramis (of Groundhog Day, Caddyshack and National Lampoon's Vacation fame). Best to watch one of his other movies instead.
