There’s actually a lot of really exciting things either already on Netflix or coming out this month. You can see a full list here, but I’m highlighting a few of my favorite choices below.
Love, Actually and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves
dat hair tho…
I feel as though Netflix is answering the need for more Alan Rickman this month by adding these two titles. Love, Actually is one of the only romantic comedies I can tolerate, and I haven’t seen Prince of Thieves in ages, but now that it’s on Netflix I think I will, if anything for the ridiculous 80’s hair.
If you’re a Jane Austen fan, this movie is worth checking out. Although not as well done as adaptations of Austen classics, it has a fantastic cast and a suitably melancholy plot.
A Tim Burton classic, and definitely worth watching if you haven’t seen it before and like the whimsical and macabre.
A cult classic, now available on Netflix! Which is great for people like me who have never had a chance to watch it (I’ve been busy?)
Star Trek 1-3 (yes, Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock!)
House of Cards (season 4)
If you have yet to get into House of Cards, you need to this weekend. (I apologize in advance, you may not get anything done due to this suggestion.) Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are both fantastic in their roles as strong, power hungry D.C. heavy weights. The show can be hard to watch, but not in a Game of Thrones hard to watch way. The protagonists are both beyond morally grey, and yet you will absolutely find yourself rooting for them. The show was produced by David Fincher, and is one of the best shows on TV.
Daredevil (season 2)
Pee-wee’s Big Holiday
Also on March 18th comes the return of Pee-wee Herman in a new Netflix movie. If you’re like me and can’t hear “Tequila” without doing the Pee-wee’s Big Adventure dance because you grew up watching it, this will hopefully be worth the wait!
And just for fun, if you want to check out the worst movie I’ve ever seen, check out The Forbidden Kingdom when it comes to Netflix March 24th.
I’m still angry at the ex who made me see this…
