We’re halfway through March and Netflix UK has dropped a whole new set of titles for us to watch. This week, 16th March 2018, there’s a total of 54 new titles added. This includes 14 new movies, four new documentaries, 14 new TV series, one new standup special, and 21 foreign movies. As we do every week, we’re going to recommend three of our favourites from the lot.

War is something that many fear, and if you had the power to control it – would you? If you enjoy watching action and adventure movies that have a believable storyline, then give Steel Rain (2018) a watch this weekend. A former North Korean intelligance agent and a South Korean security member team up for a secret mission in order to avoid a nuclear war. This film depicts real-world problems, and that’s what makes it so intriguing and intense. As long as you’re happy reading subtitles, you’ll appreciate the storyline, the emotion, and the action all in one.

Your teenage years can be a tough time, especially when you’re finding out new things and trying to find your way through high school. Four friends in the series On My Block (2018) must try to stick together during the good and the bad times. They’re more than friends, they’re family. They’ve known each other too long to separate, but once high school begins, new adventures do too. This Netflix Original will both capture your heart and have you laughing. You’ll be awaiting a season two. There’s a total of 10 episodes, all of which last about half an hour.

How far would you go for the one that you love? Would you make a significant change in order for the love to stay alive? The 2016 film I Love You focuses on the lives of a married couple who need to find a way to bring love back into their relationship. When Marianne wants to separate from her husband, he realises it’s time to make a change in his life in order for his marriage to survive. This film is a Swedish comedy and is easy to watch on a Saturday night.
