New Releases on Netflix Canada This Week (July 20th, 2018)

New This Week On Netflix Canada

Happy Friday, Netflixers! Who is ready for a break? Good news for you: over 31 new titles hit Netflix this week. Your weekend plans have just made themselves. We took the time to pick a few highlights from the selections to make your weekend that much easier.

First up is a new Netflix Original comedy Father of the Year. Starring David Spade, you may be quick to dismiss this one as another Adam Sandler abomination. Give it a chance. Two best friends get into a discussion one night at a bar about whose dad could beat up the other one in a fight. Their fathers end up taking it quite seriously and things go from there. It’s really a movie about two guys forging a relationship with their dads over the course of a summer. I laughed out loud more than once and think it has some good things going for it.

A classic movie hit Netflix this week in The Stranger. Often considered Orson Welles’ most “traditional” Hollywood-style movie, it stars Orson Welles, Loretta Young, and Edward G. Robinson (who puts forth a wonderful performance). An ex-Nazi is living under a false identity as a teacher in a small Connecticut town and takes an unsuspecting, innocent wife as part of his cover. But when one of his old arrives unexpectedly in town, bringing in his wake a sly federal investigator, he resorts to desperate measures to protect his secret. I encourage you to lower the lights and enjoy a real suspense driven drama this weekend.

If you are into documentaries, true crime, or things that are just plain weird, Dark Tourist is the watch for you. A journalist goes to creepy and strange destinations most people not consider desirable vacation material. But as you will discover, there is indeed a market for just that thing. From Fukushima to Jefferey Dahmer, there is a market for just about anything.
