May the fourth be with you and if you’re hoping for some new Star Wars content on Netflix today, you’ll be out of luck. However, Netflix has added three excellent movies for Netflixers in the United States today. 

We’ll be back a little later today with the full recap of all the week’s new additions on Netflix and also check by tomorrow for a full list of what’s coming to Netflix between May 6th and May 12th.

Hoosiers (1986)

Genre: Drama, Sport
Director: David Anspaugh

Runtime: 114 min

Nominated for two Oscars is this classic movie starring Gene Hackman from 1986. The highly rated sports movie sees a coach train up a high school basket team and gets them to the championships.

It’s a feel-good movie that’s hard to see how it’d get funded in today’s modern day and age but it’s a must-watch.

Like Arrows (2018)

Genre: Drama
Director: Kevin Peeples
Cast: Victoria Anastasi, Carter Babcock, Elizabeth Becka, Les Best
Runtime: 100 min

Debuting a year after it was first released is Like Arrows. This drama is focused on a family that’s struggling with the arrival of their newborn baby. It’s about the journey of parenting and the struggles of modern day living.

Reviews for the movie were generally positive with most critics.

War Horse (2011)

Genre: Drama, History, War
Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Jeremy Irvine, Peter Mullan, Emily Watson, Niels Arestrup
Runtime: 146 min

If you’re looking for a blockbuster this Saturday, check out War Horse. Despite Steven Spielberg having some beef with Netflix, one of his finest more recent movies just dropped today.

The inspiring movie was nominated for six Oscars and countless other awards when it first released at the turn of the decade. It’s set in World War 1 and is about a boy and his horse who get drafted into the war.
