Netflix just added 10 big movies to its library
Channing Tatum, Robert De Niro, Zac Efron and…uh…the WWE Undertaker are starring in new movies.
It’s been a busy week for Netflix, between price hikes for all Irish customers and announcing a trial of a new system that will crack down on users sharing passwords with people they don’t live with not.
On top of that, they’ve also just added ten great movies to their library, which we can now enjoy over the longer-than-usual holiday weekend…
A 37-year-old man (Matthew Perry) discovers he’s been magically brought back to age 17 (Zac Efron), and has the ability to change the “mistakes” he made when he was younger. A perfectly watchable comedy.
THE ADAM PROJECT
As we said in our review of this new release, how much you enjoy this big-budget time-travel action adventure will A LOT depend on how much you enjoy Ryan Reynolds acting as Deadpool in another movie.
The Coen brothers assemble an incredible cast – Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum – for this comedy-mystery set in 1950s Hollywood.
THE JOURNEY AT 100 FEET
Helen Mirren stars in this comedy-drama about two competing restaurants in a small French village. A pretty cute distraction.
THE RED OCTOBER HUNT
John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) directs this brilliantly taut underwater action flick starring Alec Baldwin, Sean Connery and Sam Neill, with the US and Soviet military clashing at the height of the Cold War.
IT: CHAPTER TWO
The nearly three-hour horror sequel sees evil clown Pennywise return to Derry (not that one) and the now-adult kids from the first movie try to get him out once and for all.
ONE FOR THE MONEY
Katherine Heigl stars in this action comedy about a woman who trains to become a bounty hunter. He has 2% – yes, two percent! – on rotten tomatoes.
Probably best known for giving us Take That’s song “Rule The World,” this romantic fantasy features an incredibly eclectic cast – Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Ricky Gervais, Jason Flemyng, Rupert Everett, Peter O’Toole , Michelle Pfeiffer , and Robert De Niro – trying to help or prevent two star-crossed lovers from finding each other.
SURF’S UP 2: WAVE MANIA
There are plenty of WWE wrestlers, including John Cena, The Undertaker, Vince McMahon and Triple H, providing voice work for this family-friendly animated comedy. It also doesn’t seem to have a score on Rotten Tomatoes, and we don’t know what to make of it.
You wouldn’t think a film about a drum teacher and his prodigious student would be so incredibly tense. But here we are. Miles Teller and JK Simmons star.
