Wow, what a week for new additions on Netflix UK with a great selection of films added this week. It’s a tough selection, but here are my picks for this week:
First up is “Watchmen”, an epic film based on the cult graphic novel. Set in the mid 80’s in an alternate universe and where costumed superheroes were outlawed by the government. But when one of the veterans is brutally murdered the remaining heroes reunite to find his killer and, in the process, uncover a deep and sinister plot.
“Dazed and Confused” is a coming-of-age comedy set in the late 70’s. It’s the last day of school and the older students are welcoming the freshmen and everyone is trying to get stoned, drunk or laid. The film follows a mixed group of teenagers – stoners, jocks and nerds and has a great soundtrack of 70’s pop and rock hits.
Those who like horror and ‘found-footage’ films will like “Paranormal Activity” from 2007. When a young family move into a new house, they quickly realise there are some strange goings on each night. They set up a camera to record the strange goings on and soon realise it’s something demonic causing the disturbances… With the addition of the first film, there are now five Paranormal Activity films available on Netflix UK.
And, finally, for the young ones we have a new Dreamwork’s Animation with “Voltron: Legendary Defender”. Like a cross between Power Rangers and Transformers, the series follows five unlikely heroes and their flying robot lions that join together to form ‘Voltron’ – the most powerful weapon ever made.
