The Movies That Made Us – Picture: Netflix

Happy Friday and welcome to your end of week roundup of what’s new on Netflix. You may be out shopping in the holiday sales but once you’re back, gear up for a weekend with your good friend Netflix. Here’s what’s new on Netflix for November 29th, 2019. 

You may notice today is a little quieter when it comes to Netflix Originals, that’s because Netflix put out their big hitter this week on Wednesday. We’re of course referring to The Irishman which is now on Netflix globally. Yesterday also saw two big Hollywood movies added to Netflix too.

Now let’s take a look at what’s new on Netflix today.


The Movies That Made Us (Season 1) Netflix Original

Genre: Documentary

From the team that has bought us three seasons looking into our favorite childhood toys, they’re now looking at our favorite childhood movies.

The movie covered in the docu-series includes Ghostbusters, Home Alone, Die Hard and Dirty Dancing.


La Reina del Sur (Season 2)

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Kate del Castillo, Humberto Zurita, Alejandro Calva, Carmen Navarro

If you love Queen of the South on Netflix from USA Network this Spanish series is an absolute must-watch.

Much like Queen of the South, it’s about a woman who inadvertently gets involved in drug trafficking and becomes a legend in the world.


Atlantics (2019) Netflix Original

Genre: Drama
Director: Mati Diop
Cast: Abdou Balde, Aminata Kane, Ibrahima Mbaye, Amadou Mbow
Runtime: 104 min
Language: Wolof

Vying to hopefully be among the Netflix Oscar hopefuls is Atlantics, an international movie from Senegal.

Here’s what the movie is about:

Arranged to marry a rich man, young Ada is crushed when her true love goes missing at sea during a migration attempt – until a miracle reunites them.

Several big Nollywood movies (movies made in Africa) dropped on Netflix today including The Island, The Accidental Spy and Lagos Real Fake Life.
