Happy weekend! It’s that time of the week where we take a look at highlights and what’s new this week on Netflix. 

Are you staying warm? Congrats on muddling through the most terrible month of the year. I know we have the whole Polar Vortex thing hanging on through February, but at least it gives us an excuse to be bundled up inside with Netflix. Take refuge and binge and keep your toes toasty. That’s a very important part of binging fun.

Today marks the beginning of a new month which means a big drop of new titles. For a complete list, check out our list of February titles. To stay up to date day to day be sure to check out our What’s New On Netflix page.

For your convenience, a full list of the titles added this week is at the end of this article. To keep up with new additions be sure to follow our What’s New page.

‘Annie Hall’ is streaming today on Netflix.


Russsian Doll Netflix Original

Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) stars as a woman who gets caught in a mysterious loop, repeatedly attending the same party and dying at the end of the night, only to awake the next day unharmed. It’s a mysterious, dark show that keeps growing and growing on you. Lyonne co-created Russian Doll with Amy Poehler and it shows. Full of dry, sarcastic wit the series pulls you in the more you watch with lots of laughs along the way. FULL DISCLOSURE: I thought I may have to blow my brains out listening to the same Billy Joel song over and over again.


Velvet Buzzsaw Netflix Original

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in this creepy Netflix Original doing what he does best: being weird. Gyllenhaal stars as an effete art reviewer stuck in a cultural rut. When he stumbles upon a set of art done by an unknown artist, he realizes the art itself is taking revenge on the people that don’t appreciate it.


Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Disney Exclusive

Helmed by Paul Rudd, this action thriller involves Scott Lang still on house arrest (Avengers: Civil War) who is drawn into another plot to save the planet. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy.


The Magnificent Ambersons (1942)

This acclaimed drama follows two generations of a well-to-do family. Isabel Amberson receives a proposal from dashing Eugene, but opts instead to marry boring Wilbur. Time passes, and Wilbur and Isabel’s only son, George, is loathed as a controlling figure in the town. When Wilbur dies, Eugene again proposes to Isabel, but George threatens the union. As George in turn courts the woman he wants to marry, a string of tragedies befalls the family.


Gabriel Fluffy Iglesias: One Show Fits All Netflix Original

One of the best things about Gabriel Iglesias is he makes everyone feel like a personal friend. His infectious laughter and riotous eye gestures and voices make everything he says all the more funny. In this new Netflix Original standup special he is bringing the game and swinging for the fences. His comedy is always light, always fun, and always worth watching.
