New Releases on Netflix Canada (2nd January 2016)

Published on EST


The year of 2017 is among us, and that means more Netflix shows are on their way to your screens. Over the last week there has been an incredible amount of new titles added to Canadian Netflix, 108 to be exact! And many absolute classics, some of which we have chosen to point out for you from this mass of 47 movies, 38 documentaries and 23 TV series.

Out first mention is the Spielberg cult classic ‘Jurassic Park’ which shouldn’t need describing, but i’ll do it anyway. It’s a story of two palaeontologists who have been invited to preview John Hammond’s new Park, they agree when he says he will fund all their digs. The Park is full of genetically cloned Dinosaurs from the blood found in a preserved mosquito. After a bad storm the system is knocked out and the deadly animals are left to roam the park, hunting. This film is perceived as brilliant as it was groundbreaking for it’s time and is one of Spielberg’s best films as a whole.
‘A lost world: Jurassic Park’ and ‘Jurassic Park III’ has also been released

Fans of the animated genre will be pleased to hear that season 7-10 of Futurama have been added for your pleasure. A comedy about a pizza delivery guy from the year 1999 who is accidentally cryogenically frozen to the year 2999 and has to adapt to the drastically different world and the city of new new York, hilarity ensues.

Our Final pick is another Spielberg classic, being ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’. About a child who stumbles across a strange looking small alien that he protects from the shady men in black. He helps him to “phone home” and return to the safety of his own kind. Another one of Steven Spielberg’s best productions, that has inspired and stayed with so many people and is a milestone in cinematic history, the shot of the flying bike silhouetted over the moon is iconic and not easily forgotten.

Honourable mentions: Back to the Future Part I, II and III.
