New Releases on Netflix Australia (9th January 2017)

Published on EST

2017 has now gone into full flow and the second week of January welcomes a total of 38 new titles to Australian Netflix. 14 new movies, 9 Documentaries and 15 TV series. As usual, we have chosen three out of this selection that we feel stand out and need their own special mention, maybe you should consider giving them a watch?

Our first pick is the 1964 western classic ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ starring the man with no name, well… ‘Clint Eastwood’ and is the first of the famous spaghetti westerns, and is regarded as one of the best. The lone wanderer causes some trouble in a corrupt town and pins two rivals against each other. Directed by Sergio Leone, this classic catapulted both his and Clint Eastwood’s careers to success.

One Day at a Time is a new Netflix Original based on the 1975 sitcom of the same name and pretty much follows the same premise. A Cuban family living in America, an ex-military mother of two, also trying to cope with her old-fashioned mother has befriended the landlord Schneider. This is a laugh track comedy that fans of shows like Fuller House will enjoy.

Our Final pick is a relatively unknown Horror/Triller film called ‘The Watcher’ about an unsuspecting couple that buys their perfect home, not aware of it’s dark history. After a while, they come to realize that they might not be the only ones in the house. Something is silently watching them and trying to drive them out.
