Here's the best new stuff on Netflix this month

netflix.jpg

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the temperatures are set to hit DOUBLE FIGURES. So what better way to spend your weekend than hunched over Netflix in a darkened room, curtains drawn to avoid glare on your laptop screen?

Sound good? Good. Here are some of the best new additions to Netflix UK. 

Blue Velvet

If the new series of Twin Peaks has piqued your interest in the weird world of David Lynch, you couldn’t do much better than Blue Velvet. Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Isabella Rossellini and Dennis Hopper team up in a film noir as surreal as it is sexy. The perfect Friday night watch. 


Cruel Intentions

A modern retelling of Les Liaisons dangereuses, Cruel Intentions is probably the ultimate in the classic teenagers-have-sex-and-double-cross-each-other-in-the-meantime genre. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Selma Blair...have sex and double cross each other for an hour and a half, basically, and it is really good. 

 


House of Cards

Weekends are for binge-watching, so you may as well waste 12 hours of your life by watching season 5 of House of Cards in one sitting, right? 


Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, and Spy Kids 3: Game Over

Weekends are for binge-watching, so you may as well waste 269 minutes of your life by watching all three films in the seminal franchise Spy Kids, right? 

Pulp Fiction

OKAY, OKAY, WE’LL BE SERIOUS NOW. You’ve almost certainly seen Pulp Fiction already, what with it being widely considered one of the greatest films of all time, so you don’t need me to tell you about its brilliant ensemble cast or its cartoonish violence or its bleak, dark humour. If you’ve not already seen Pulp Fiction, you should...probably get on it, I dunno.
