The best Netflix movies to watch (or skip) this weekend
Here are some of the best Netflix movies to watch (and some to skip) this Memorial Day weekend.
Classic and hilarious PG movie from 1999 with several stars of the 90’s.
Regard! The last day you can see this hilarious 1999 movie is May 31st, so get it as soon as possible! Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Alan Rickman and more star in this comedic sci-fi film about the seedy cast of a once-iconic sci-fi series who are recruited by for an intergalactic space mission real aliens.
Gloomy Polish TV-MA action film.
Skip! Mother’s Day is a new action movie from Poland that recently made it into the Netflix top 10 charts. While it’s an entertaining movie with some great action sequences and dark humor, it’s not the most original movie. If you’ve seen the Jennifer Lopez movie The motheryou might get a déjà vu as the plot is similar.
edge of seventeen
Intimate coming-of-age film from 1998 with TV-MA rating.
Regard! Not to be confused with the 2016 film of the same name starring Hailee Steinfeld, edge of seventeen is a 1998 sentimental drama about a teenager navigating high school and slowly coming to terms with his sexual identity. The last day you can watch it on Netflix is May 31st. So now is a good time to check it out and ring in Pride Month.
Badass and raunchy R-rated 2016 comedy starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.
Skip! Dirty grandpa may have a great cast with actors like Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza and Zoey Deutch, but alas, this gross comedy is painfully unfunny. It tries too hard to be edgy and never manages to be anything but aggressively bad and wasting its talented ensemble. If you have never seen this movie in cinemas in 2016, then it is not worth spending time on it now.
Tin & Tina
New R-rated Spanish horror film.
Regard! Tin & Tina is one of the first new Netflix Original horror movies in a long time, and for that reason alone I’m looking forward to watching it. After a miscarriage, a young couple adopts twins from a nearby convent. But the children’s shared obsession with religion soon takes a disturbing turn. Milena Smith from the Netflix series The snow girl Stars.
