The Wizard of Oz (1939) is now available to stream on Netflix

We’re still weeks away from Halloween but the treats have come early with the addition of 84 new movies and tv series to the Netflix Canada library. Here’s what’s new and most popular on Netflix Canada this week for October 2nd, 2020.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights on Netflix Canada:


The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Director: Victor Fleming
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy | Runtime: 102 Minutes
Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahhr, Jack Haley

What more can be said about one of the most iconic movies in cinematic history? The vast majority of people will have seen The Wizard of Oz at one time or another, and if it’s been a while, now is the perfect time to recapture the magic that the land of Oz brought to the screen.

Dorothy and her faithful dog Toto are swept away by a tornado into the mysterious land of Oz. Wanting nothing more than to return home to Kansas, Dorothy begins her journey to see the wonderful wizard of Oz to seek his help. Along the way, Dorothy befriends a brainless scarecrow, a tin man without a heart, and a cowardly lion.


Boogie Nights (1997)

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Genre: Drama | Runtime: 155 Minutes
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Julianne Moore, Burt Reynolds, Heather Graham, John C. Reily

Boogie Nights was Mark Whalberg’s transition into a fully-fledged actor, and in doing so helped remove any shackles of being Marky Mark. Showcasing some fantastic acting talent for his first lead role in a major production, the rest is now history as Whalberg has since gone to become a twice nominated Academy Award actor.

1977, San Fernando Valley, teenage busboy Eddie Adams is recruited by acclaimed porn director Jack Horner. Taking on the porn alter ego of Dirk Diggler, he becomes a near-instant hit. Dirk is able to fulfill many of his wildest dreams, but a creeping addiction to drugs and his newfound ego threatens to destroy his life and career.


Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! (2018)

Director: Ol Parker
Genre: Comedy, Musical, Romance | Runtime: 116 Minutes
Cast: Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep, Andy Garcia, Julie Walters

Thanks to the sheer number of smash hits that ABBA released over the years, it should come as no surprise that Mamma Mia received a sequel.

In preparation for the grand reopening of the Hotel Bella Donna, Sophie learns more about her mother’s mysterious past.
