The week is drawing to a close and Netflix has lots of new movies and shows to binge over the weekend, with 16 new titles now available. But which ones are worth watching? Here’s the full list of new movies and shows on Netflix and what’s trending in the Netflix top 10s for May 19th, 2022.
A number of movies are scheduled to leave Netflix tomorrow. Honeytrap (2014), Anchor Baby (2010), and I Will Follow (2010) all depart tomorrow. We also see over 120 episodes of the crime series Rosario Tijeras leave Netflix US.
Looking ahead to the end of the week, you can expect new seasons of One Piece on Sunday and tomorrow we’ll see the highly anticipated release of the new season of Love, Death and Robots. Speaking of which, one of the episodes in Volume 3 was added to YouTube which we’ve embedded below.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for May 19th
A Perfect Pairing (2022)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Stuart McDonald
Cast: Victoria Justice, Adam Demos, Luca Sardelis, Samantha Cain, Craig Horner, Antonio Alvarez
Writer: Hilary Galanoy, Elizabeth Hackett
Runtime: 101 min
Headlining today’s lineup is the new Victoria Justice rom-com. This is Victoria’s second major Netflix Original movie on Netflix following Afterlife of the Party arriving last year.
What are the critics saying? Variety’s Courtney Howard stated that the movie is “Charming, cute and fairly satisfying” adding “it follows the formula for Netflix branded content that’s typically reserved for their holiday films, going down smoothly and pleasing the palate.”
Elsewhere, The Cinemaholic says the movie is poorly conceptualized only giving it a 2 out of 5 rating.
The G Word with Adam Conover (Limited Series)
Genre: Documentary, Comedy
Cast: Nicole Randall Johnson, Adam Conover
Writer: Jon Cohen, Adam Conover, Jon Wolf
Runtime: 26 mins
Best known for Adam Ruins Everything (a show that was added to Netflix in 2018 and is still streaming), Adam Conover is known for blending information and comedy in a convenient package.
That’s precisely what he does here with The G Word which seeks to find out exactly what the US government is and what it does or should be doing on your behalf.
Given the series is very political in nature, we’ll be interested to see whether this sparks outcry from certain corners of the internet in the coming days.
Who Killed Sara? (Season 3)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Cast: Carolina Miranda, Rocco Narva, Manolo Cardona
Writer: José Ignacio Valenzuela
Runtime: 40 mins
Rewinding to yesterday, we got the third and final season of the Spanish-language crime mystery series Who Killed Sara? which became a hit around the world following its debut on the service in March 2021.
Here is the official logline for the final season of the series:
“Just when we thought it was Marifer who killed Sara by cutting the ropes of the parachute, everything was flipped on its head at the end of season 2. In an unexpected and mysterious scene, Nicandro reveals that Marifer was not the one who committed the crime, but rather that “it was really us” who did it. Who? Why? At last, all those questions asked throughout the series will be answered in this third and final season – the most surprising and explosive yet!”
