Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix US This Week

Shirley (2024)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Director: John Ridley
Cast: Regina King, Lance Reddick, Terrence Howard
Writer: John Ridley
Runtime: 118 mins / 1h 58m

Netflix released two Original movies today. The Casagrandes Movie from Nickelodeon was the big new family title released alongside the political biopic Shirley, which Regina King headlines. The story retells the life of Shirley Chisholm, the United States’ first Black woman elected to Congress and ultimately went onto run for the presidency.

In our review of the movie, we concluded giving a three-star review, saying:

“The film feels sanitized & hesitant compared to the actual footage of Chisholm’s campaign trail that were filled with impassioned speeches & brazen interviews. King & Ridley should be applauded for bringing Shirley’s story back into our lives in such an election year, but it won’t be held in the same esteem as their Oscar-nominated peers.”

3 Body Problem (Season 1)

Number of episodes: 8
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Cast: Marlo Kelly, Saamer Usmani, Jess Hong
Runtime: 61 mins / 1h 1m

Netflix’s marketing and PR engine has been operating at full speed this week for 3 Body Problem, the ambitious new sci-fi series from the creators of Game of Thrones. Although opinions on the internet are divided, most people are enjoying it.

Adapting the Chinese novels was previously deemed impossible, but the effort by duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss at the very least is to be commended. The story follows five friends across multiple continents as they make Earth-shattering scientific discoveries.

On the Line (2022)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Thriller
Director: Romuald Boulanger
Cast: Mel Gibson, William Moseley, Alia Seror-O’Neill
Writer: Romuald Boulanger

And finally, if you’re looking for a recent Mel Gibson action thriller, Netflix has just become the SVOD home for On the Line, marking its debut on a streaming service for the first time.

Gibson plays the role of Elvis, a radio talk show host who is threatened live on air by a caller who is saying he will kill his entire family. His only choice is to play along, hoping to find the killer’s identity.

Reviews for the title thus far aren’t particularly strong, but if you’re a fan of Gibson, this could be a nice weekend watch.
