The seven best things to watch on Netflix this weekend
It's the freakin' weekend, let's all stay in and watch Netflix.
It is almost the weekend, so here is our list of all the best new stuff that's been added to Netflix, and other streaming services. There are movies starring the likes of Adam Sandler and David Attenborough, along with classic 2000s sitcoms and the scary sequel to one of Netflix's popular show. Enjoy!
Hubie Halloween - Netflix
After the acclaim of Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler is back to what he does best. Look, at this point, you already know if you love or hate Sandler comedies, though if you need any convincing, Hubie Halloween also features appearances from (deep breath) Kevin James, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O'Neal, Steve Buscemi, Maya Rudolph, and Ben Stiller.
David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet - Netflix
New David Attenborough is always cause for celebration. But this new film for Netflix celebrates both his own incredible life, and looks at the challenges facing the Planet Earth in the near future.
American Murder: The Family Next Door - Netflix
The true-crime documentary that everyone has been talking about, about a horrific murder from 2018. Both an important film on violence against women, and an excellent piece of filmmaking in its own right.
The Binding (Il Legame) - Netflix
An Italian horror movie that is getting a lot of buzz, about a woman fighting a mysterious and malevolent curse put upon a daughter (don't worry, there are both English subtitles and dubbing available on Netflix).
The Haunting of Bly Manor - Netflix
Aka The Haunting of Hill House season two. A bit like the different American Horror Story seasons, The Haunting of Bly Manor is a separate story and unconnected from Hill House, but expect the same sort of terrifying scares. This time it is based on Henry James’ 1998 novella The Turn of the Screw, but with most of the action taking place in 1987.
The Boys season two - Amazon Prime Video
The second season of Amazon's brutal superhero satire has been dropping episodes weekly, but they are now all available, so if you were waiting to binge the whole season in one go, now is the time. The second season sees the debut of a new hero Stormfront who, no spoilers, is not quite what she seems.
Malcolm in the Middle - All4
All4 is actually really underrated as a streaming service. It has all the Channel 4 stuff, sure, but there's a lot of other stuff on there as well. All of Seinfeld, Buffy and Angel, as well as collections of anime and Adult Swim cartoons, all for free. And now they've just added all of Malcolm in the Middle, the classic 2000s sitcom, if you want some proper '6pm on Fridays on BBC Two' vibes. Plus Bryan Cranston!
