There was also a big drop of James Bond films today. We’ve rounded those up as well to make for easier viewing.

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, updated daily.

Legally Blonde is streaming now on Netflix.

Strangers on a Train

I love it when Netflix adds great classic movies. This noir Hitchcock thriller is about a tennis player enraged by his wife’s refusal to grant him a divorce. When he strikes up a conversation with a stranger he unwittingly sets in motion a deadly chain of events. This film definitely deserves a top spot in the binge list.

The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind Netflix Original

This uplifting story is based on the true story of William Kamkwamba. Maxwell Simba plays William, a 13-year-old boy living in a small farming village in Malawi when bad weather leads to a deadly famine in his community. Against the odds, he comes up with a windmill-powered generator to irrigate the fields and save them. This is a good one to watch with the family.

Northern Rescue Netflix Original

Another title that is a good family watch, this series stars William Baldwin as a widower who packs up his family after the unexpected death of his wife and moves back to his home town. Now in rural Turtle Island Bay, the family must find a way to heal, make friends, and start a new life. I found this series to be very touching. If you’re looking for a wholesome family show this is a good way to go.
