Welcome to your weekly roundup of all the new movies, series, documentaries and stand-ups that have made their way onto Netflix in Australia over the past 7 days. We’ll give you a quick roundup of the best of the bunch then move onto the complete list for the week.
As it was Thanksgiving over in the United States of America this week, Netflix released a large number of titles under the Original banner this week. If you’re wanting to get into the Christmas mood, then Kurt Russell becomes Santa in Netflix’s best Christmas movie to date. The Christmas Chronicles is great for both the kids and adults alike. Enjoy!
We also got new seasons of both Frontier and The Last Kingdom which are two-period drama shows well worth your time.
Elsewhere, Netflix Australia also was treated to some great new movies this week too. Let’s begin with the 1974 classic Blazing Saddles. The comedy nominated for 3 Oscars stars Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little and Slim Pickens. The Mel Brooks comedy Western was an instant classic and is still enjoyable to this day.
If you want to get a little hot under the collar this week, Netflix Australia dropped the second Fifty Shades movie. It scored rubbish reviews but never-the-less was a big success when it released in cinemas last year. Fifty Shades Darker is now on Netflix.
Finally, Netflix AU has finally gotten its hand on the latest season of the internet sensation animated series, Rick and Morty. Season 3 is streaming now.
