Jaws Franchise (1975 – 1987)

Genre: Thriller

Today sees the return of the entire Jaws franchise which includes Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws: The Revenge.

Although none of the subsequent movies hit the heights of the first movie that’s coming up to its 50th birthday anniversary.

Of course, the entire franchise sees sharks terrorizing the population.


Safe House (2012)

Genre: Action, Thriller
Director: Daniel Espinosa
Cast: Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Robert Patrick
Writer: David Guggenheim
Runtime: 115 min

One of the two new Denzel Washington movies that have just touched down on Netflix today includes Safe House released in 2012.

The movie is about a CIA operative having to evacuate a criminal who has been compromised and hunted down.

Although Training Day (the other Denzel Washington film added today) is arguably better, that movie has been on Netflix relatively recently.
