New Releases on Netflix: December 8th, 2019

From Paris with Love – Picture: Lionsgate

This weekend has been fairly quiet with new releases but there are four main titles to cover plus we’ll also recap all the new releases that arrived on Netflix over the past 7 days.

Looking ahead? Netflix has another quiet week for you next week with most of the big new releases now stacked towards the tail end of the month.

From Paris with Love (2010)

Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Director: Pierre Morel
Cast: John Travolta, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Kasia Smutniak, Richard Durden
Runtime: 92 min

John Travolta movies are always hit and miss and this one didn’t buck the trend when it released nearly a decade ago.

The movie makes for a great Sunday afternoon flick for those looking to switch off for a few hours. Set in Paris, a junior employee in the US embassy hooks up with a veteran spy to stop a plot from blowing up the French capital.

Reviews are mixed with a 38% Rotten Tomatoes rating, 42 on Metacritic and 6.5 on IMDb.


Spirit Riding Free: Spirit of Christmas (2019)

Cast: Amber Frank, Bailey Gambertoglio, Sydney Park, Evan Agos, Kay Bess, Darcy Rose Byrnes
Runtime: 45 mins

Our second highlight today is a new Christmas special added to Netflix for the Dreamworks series, Spirit Riding Free.

The special sees Lucky and friends get stuck on their travels when a boulder crashes on the train tracks.

Let’s quickly cover all the new weekly additions. Today saw another brand new episode of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj. Today’s topic covered is “Don’t ignore the Asian Vote in 2020” referring to the upcoming 2020 Presidential election.

We also saw updates to South Korean series Chocolate, Chief of Staff and Voice added this week.
