New Releases on Netflix Canada (17th February 2017)

Published on EST

It’s the middle of February and this week has introduced a total of 54 new titles to Canada’s Netflix database. A total of 38 new Movies, 8 Documentaries and another 8 new TV series will be added for your enjoyment. As usual, we have picked out three titles that we think deserve to be highlighted and talked about, so you can consider giving them a watch.

Our first pick is the 1998 war classic ‘Saving Private Ryan’ starring Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and Tom Sizemore. The film follows a group of U.S. Soldiers who are sent way behind enemy lines to find and rescue Private James Ryan after all three of his brothers are killed in action. This epic recreation of the struggle real service men went though has been regarded as one of the best war movies ever made and with the fantastic directing of Steven Spielberg has was a total of 5 Oscars and a whole host of awards. Even if you aren’t into war films that much, and you haven’t yet seen Saving Private Ryan, it is definitely worth all 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Our second choice for this week is the new Netflix Original ‘Girlfriend’s Day’ starring Bob Odenkirk (Best known from Braking Bad’s Saul Goodman) and Amber Tamblyn. The world the film is set in is a unique one, to say the least. Greetings card writers are regarded as A-list celebrities and Bob Odenkirk plays a romance writer who used to be extremely successful and treated like a king but has now fallen on hard times. After the town creates a new holiday ‘Girlfriend’s Day’ he attempts to rekindle his passion and flair for writing in order to create the perfect card and win the competition. In doing so he gets wrapped into a dark plot involving murder and deception. Anyone who loves quirky dark stories should enjoy this movie.

The sequel to the much loved Disney animated film Finding Nemo was released in 2016, titled Finding Dory. To the delight of both young children and the now Adult audience that loved the 2003 film. The new film follows Dory as she attempts to find herself by intern finding her long lost parents, which eventually leads them to a Marine Life Institute where they make many friends to aid them in their search for Dory’s parents. The long-awaited sequel has been received very well and if you didn’t go and see it in the cinema then we hope you won’t be disappointed.
