It is time for another Netflix post! This week I wanted to talk about what new films have been added to Netflix this week. I am pretty happy Netflix has included this selection and my plan today is to just grab my duvet, make popcorn and relax. Netflix and Sunday's go together like Ben & Jerry so I think this playlist will satisfy your lazy day. I have put together quite a few Netflix playlists, including superhero films, thrillers, musicals, feel good shows and even a tearjerker list. Let me know if you are looking for a particular genre, I love putting this Netflix post together! You can see my previous Netflix posts here. Let's get started! ♥
This was added a few weeks ago and I'll admit, Beastly it isn't great. It is pretty cringe worthy and Vanessa Hudgen's is just annoying throughout this film but there is something very charming about it. When I was bed bound a few weeks ago, I put this on and just the soundtrack, Neil Patrick Harris and Alex Pettyfer topless make this watchable. It really is a simple plot, inspired by Beauty and the Beast - minus any magic. I remember this filmed received pretty bad reviews in 2011 when it was released but for a chill day, this is certainly a guilty pleasure.
I actually went to see this in the cinema with Ollie and when we were driving back home, he actually locked the car. He will kill me for telling you all this. I love, love, love the Sinister films. Yes, it is odd to love scary films but for some reason I love being scared! I don't usually get scared easily but the Sinister films make me jump for 2 hours solid. The plot is actually really clever and the sequel has now been added to Netflix. It continues from the first film and the detective (who has now been fired and has now turned into a private detective) is trying to protect a family that have moved into a house. Gruesome murders previously took place and now he is worried history will repeat itself.
Okay, this film is awful to watch but it is such a guilty pleasure! Just like Beastly, if it is on the TV, I will still watch it anyway. I'm sure everyone and their pet cat knows about the story line but if you don't, the plot was originally created as Twilight fan fiction. This became a book series and voila, it is now a film. I grew up watching strong female characters, from Buffy to Lois Lane and Anastasia's character really does make me want to bang my head on a table, but I don't take this film too seriously. It's a perfect film to chill out and watch...and cringe.
Madea's Witness Protection
I rarely like comedies, but Madea (played by director and actor, Tyler Perry) is pure magic. If you haven't heard of Madea before, please watch Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Her character made that film for me and she has been in quite a few films since then. Madea's Witness Protection begins with George Needleman visiting his work and finding it in havoc. It is revealed it has been secretly run by the mob and now George and his family must go into hiding for safety. They end up staying at Madea's house and craziness pretty much happens. This really isn't a serious film, it is just crazy and Madea's sense of humour and quotes are perfect.
I was really surprised how much I liked this film when it was released. I know people have said its like The Hunger Games (I haven't seen them...) but I really like the concept of Divergent. The film is set in the future and a city is divided into five different factions. Tris (played by Shailene Woodley) discovers that she is divergent and is deemed a threat to the government because she does not fit into just one faction. She begins training in the Dauntless faction, hiding the truth and the plot develops from there. I love the chemistry with Tris and Four and the training scenes are pretty entertaining too. I'm not usually a sci-fi, futuristic genre type of girl but Divergent really is a great watch.
