7 great movies you can watch on Netflix this weekend
Netflix has too much content: TV, movies, standup, you name it. It’s a great thing, but it also leads to hours spent trying to figure out what to watch, instead of actually watching something.
To make your binge-watching a bit easier, every week, we comb through Netflix’s current inventory and collect some movies that might spark your interest.
From Star Wars story “Rogue One” to the brand-new Netflix original movie, “Nappily Ever After,” these are some great movies on Netflix that you can watch over the weekend.
Here’s 7 movies you should watch on Netflix this weekend:
“Nappily Ever After” (2018) — A Netflix Original
Netflix description: When a perfectionist ad exec experiences a romantic setback, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery that begins with a dramatic hair makeover.
Critic score: N/A
Audience score: N/A
This movie starring the endlessly charming Sanaa Lathan is based on the novel of the same name. It follows Violet, a woman who realizes she hasn’t been really living her life until she is freed from her hair. It’s a sweet, significant movie that like HBO’s “Insecure” authentically represents the perspective of a black woman in a way that is both funny and dramatic.
“The Witch” (2015)
Netflix description: Believing that a witch has cursed their family, pilgrims homesteading on the edge of a primeval New England forest become increasingly paranoid.
Critic score: 91%
Audience score: 57%
This thrilling, unsettling, and incredibly well-shot horror film works so well because it is genuinely scary as it touches on themes, such as society’s expectations for women, that are still relevant today.
“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” (2010)
Netflix description: Dreamy delivery girl Ramona captures Scott Pilgrim’s heart, but he must vanquish all seven of her evil exes in martial arts battles to win her love.
Critic score: 81%
Audience score: 83%
This unique movie was truly like nothing else out there when it came out in 2010. It’s funny, vibrant, and has some great performances from Michael Cera and others. It also features some major MCU actors before they were superheroes: Chris Evans and Brie Larson.
