There’s too much to watch across all streaming services, and Netflix is daunting on its own. But we’re here to make sure you spend more time watching movies than choosing them.
Every week, we look through what’s available on the streaming service and recommend seven movies you can watch over the weekend.
Some of our selections recently came to Netflix and some have been available for awhile — you might have just missed them because Netflix’s algorithm thought you wouldn’t like them.
From Netflix’s latest original film „Outlaw King“ to „Anna Karenina,“ these are some movies on Netflix you can watch this weekend.
Here are seven movies on Netflix you should check out (along with their scores from Rotten Tomatoes).
Note: Not all of these films are available in countries outside the United States. Apologies!
“Outlaw King” (2018) — A Netflix Original
Netflix description: In 14th-century Scotland, Robert the Bruce claims the crown and leads a fierce uprising to win back the country’s independence from English rule.
Critic score: 54%
Audience score: 100%
This new Netflix film isn’t great, but it’s worth watching for the steamy sex scene in which Chris Pine goes full frontal that people have been talking about since its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. It’s boring compared to most historical dramas, but Pine does his best and proves he’s a fit for the genre. Next time, we just hope it’s a better movie.
“The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement” (2004)
Netflix description: As the newly crowned princess of the tiny European country of Genovia, teen Mia Thermopolis learns an arranged marriage may be in store for her.
Critic score: 25%
Audience score: 59%
This movie has it all: Chris Pine (again!), an unexplained Stan Lee cameo, and a screenplay by the unstoppable but not-famous-at-the-time Shonda Rhimes. It is a silly kids movie, but it’s worth revisiting, especially considering the success of everyone involved.
Netflix description: To win his true love’s heart, wide-eyed Tristan Thorn journeys to a forbidden realm to retrieve a star that has taken human form.
Critic score: 76%
Audience score: 86%
„Stardust“ came out in 2007, a great year for movies, which is why it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It captures the whimsical spirit of the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, and it has a seriously magical cast: Claire Danes, Charlie Cox (Netflix’s „Daredevil“!), Robert De Niro, Mark Strong, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Peter O’Toole. It was directed by Matthew Vaughn, who later went on to direct „Kick-Ass,“ „X-Men: First Class,“ and the „Kingsman“ movies.
