New Releases on Netflix Australia (23rd December 2016)


It’s the Eve of Christmas Eve and the last 2 weeks, Australian Netflix has seen a large amount of new content enter it’s database. A total of 73 titles! 33 new movies, 10 Documentaries and another 30 TV shows. We have as usual chosen 3 titles that we feel need a mention from this vast list.

But don’t forget just because their hasn’t been that many Christmas titles added recently, doesn’t mean that there aren’t already loads of classics already on Netflix, so be sure to check!

Firstly we have chosen the new Biography Drama based of the early life of the U.S. President Barack Obama. The hour and 45 minute film gives an insight into the story of how the young Obama overcome many problems, including discrimination and finding where he belongs in the world. If you are interested about Obama’s story, even slightly, this is definitely a film for you.

Our Next pick is the 2013 film ‘Captain Phillips’ based on a true story of a group of Somili Pirates that hijack the US Maersk Alabama cargo ship in 2009. It has been praised as one of Tom Hanks best roles and an all around amazing thriller that got Nominated for 6 Oscars, had 16 wins and a total of 138 nominations. Pretty impressive and definitely worth a watch.

The final choice for this week is the new E4 TV series ‘Crazyhead’ created by Howard Overman (Who made Misfits). It’s about 2 likeable main characters who have the rare gift of being able to see ‘demons’ that are hiding in society. They have to try their best to be bad asses, and they somewhat pull it off. The show includes quite dirty humour and attitudes, much like misfits. This is a little series that you should at least try out for the first couple of episodes, because it is clear some people have fallen in love.
