It’s a new week and Monday brings with it three new titles to enjoy on Netflix. The new titles include two great movies and a new movie from India too. Here’s what’s new on Netflix for January 27th, 2020. 

This week is set to see a huge library of new content added thanks in part to the February 1st additions on Saturday. We’ve got a full preview of the week ahead here.

Now let’s take a look at the new releases for January 27th:

We Are Your Friends (2015)

Genre: Drama, Music, Romance
Director: Max Joseph
Cast: Zac Efron, Wes Bentley, Emily Ratajkowski, Jonny Weston
Runtime: 96 min

First up, is the 2015 movie from Warner Brothers. Starring Zac Efron who is mainly known for his role on Disney’s High School Musical and more recently on Netflix’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, he plays the role of an aspiring yet struggling DJ.

The movie was better received by audiences than critics currently sitting at a 6.2 on IMDb whereas it’s currently sitting at 46 on Metacritic with one reviewer referring to it as a “mediocre mash-up”


Country Strong (2010)

Runtime: 117 min

The second movie added to Netflix in the US today is Country Strong. Starring Gwyneth Paltrow, who just this weekend featured in the goop lab (which is currently tracking at a 1.7/10 on IMDb, ouch!) it’s about a rising music star in the country genre working with a fallen star to navigate the industry.

Country Song was nominated at the 2011 Oscars for “Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song” for the Coming Home song.

As with, We Are Your Friends, the movie was better received by audiences but once again, seemed to split both.
