We fly until December and it’s a big week. Not necessarily for Netflix, but it’s Spider-Man release week, so that’s the topic of the entertainment world. However, if you don’t like superhero movies or don’t want to hit the theaters, you might want to know what’s new on Netflix. So we’re back with another list of new Netflix movies and shows to watch this weekend!
This week’s list is shorter than the ones I usually bring you, but there’s a bit of variety here, so I hope you enjoy it. Three of the six entries are movies and you get a good chunk of reality TV as well as a great fantasy series in this week’s entries.
To complete this week’s list, I want to make sure I tell you about some great releases from the past week that should be on your list. A good animated film (since this week is light on them) is Back to the Outback, which is currently in the top five Netflix movies and shows. Number one on the list, as of this writing, is Sandra Bullock’s film The unforgivable. A great drama that will keep you going until the end.
Now for this week’s entrees!
New Netflix Movies and Shows This Week:
- God’s hand (film), December 15 (Italian)
- Sell Tampa: Season 1, December 15
- A Christmas Naija (film), December 16
- A Californian Christmas: the city lights (film), December 16
- The witcher: Season 2, December 17
- Hell of singles: Season 1, Dec. 18
Best show to watch the weekend of December 17
Flip a coin to your witcher! I think the choice here was obvious. A show featuring an actor like Henry Cavill playing an iconic character is hard to beat. The first season was acclaimed and the second is also acclaimed by critics.
The second season of The witcher will also be 8 episodes long. Cavill was desperate to land the role when he heard the series was being created and he was great to respect it. Fans of books and games are enjoying this series, so this is probably just the beginning.
Best movie to watch the weekend of December 17
The best movie of this week was a bit more difficult. There are two very Christmas movies on the list but I’m not quite into the Christmas spirit yet. There is only one left, the Italian film God’s hand. Coming from BAFTA-winning director Paolo Sorrentino, God’s hand has incredible reviews so far.
The story follows a boy growing up through a rough time in Naples in the 1980s. In this coming-of-age story, the main character experiences a series of ups and downs in a way that reminds us of how life changes when you least expect it. Reading the reviews you will see that the word “masterful” is used a lot and it is a testament to Sorrentino’s storytelling ability.
What will you be watching this weekend? If we forgot your choice, be sure to let us know!
