You are probably watching too many all eight episodes of Shadow and Bone, but there are also great movies on Netflix!
Yes I know. There is no time for movies on Netflix this weekend. You are watching and then watching Shadow and Bone again. I understand. I am there with you!
But, if you want to watch something different, there are some great movies to check out. There were not many major releases during the week. In fact, even the smallest releases did not stand out much. It was all about that certain YA fantasy series at the end of the week.
This is a great chance to watch movies from the first day of the month that you probably skipped at the beginning. It’s time to choose the best Netflix movies to check out from April 24th to 25th, 2021.
5 movies on Netflix you need to watch this weekend
There were a few releases during this week that you should pay attention to. The first is Stowaway, which is not the light space film you expected at the beginning. It is a heavy space thriller that will leave you on the edge of your chair.
Three crew members on a spaceship bound for Mars think it will be difficult to create a sustainable life. They end up struggling with a fourth passenger who never intended to be on the spacecraft taking his oxygen and other resources. What will they all do?
Do you love Jessica Chastain? So you’ll want to take a look at Miss Sloane, who arrived on Netflix earlier in the week. She stars as Elizabeth Sloane in this political thriller.
Elizabeth is a fierce lobbyist, fighting for gun control legislation. Of course, this means that there are people who want to fight back, and the opposite party is willing to go into your personal life to do so. How safe is she from this intrusion?
The Time Traveler’s Wife
Need something a little lighter and looking for romance? The Time Traveler’s Wife fell on Netflix earlier this month. It is one of the Netflix movies that you may have overlooked in the beginning.
Rachel McAdams stars as a woman who falls in love with a time traveler (played by Eric Bana). She wants a life with him, but that is not easy when he cannot control when he leaves, where he goes or when he returns. It is even more difficult when it comes to hope for the future. Can she make this relationship work?
How about a horror movie starring Jennifer Aniston? Yes, before Friends, Aniston starred in the movie Leprechaun, and now you can watch it on Netflix. It’s not the best horror movie ever made, but it’s fun entertainment for the weekend. Sometimes, that’s all you need!
Warwick Davis is the titular villain, a goblin who follows a man who steals gold coins from him home. The man locks the leprechaun, but 10 years later he is released accidentally. Now the goblin is on a murder spree to get his gold back.
Need a Jim Carrey movie? You’re right! Yes Man is available on Netflix and will be a fun way to end the weekend and get ready for a new week (and almost a new month!).
Yes Man is a bit like Netflix’s Yes Day. Carrey plays Carl, a man with low self-esteem who agrees to participate in a challenge to improve his life. He has to say yes to everything for an entire year. What kind of problem could he get into?
