Movies to Check Out on Netflix This Weekend


Staying home tonight or just need some lazy Saturday viewing ideas? Check out what’s newly streaming on Netflix and some classics you might want to check out again.

Flight – Did you see the commercials and wondered how or why Denzel Washington landed a plane that was upside down but you didn’t care enough to pay $10.50 to find out? Now you can.

Olympus Has Fallen – Of the two White House attack movies released this year, this is the one with Gerard Butler and not Channing Tatum.

Sharknado – Syfy’s summer sensation is yours to watch and rewatch, with friends, snacks and probably a lot of booze. The acting is amazingly bad but if you ever wanted to see Ian Ziering chainsaw through a shark from the inside, consider your wish granted.

Safe Haven – Looking for some romantic drama this weekend? Try this one with Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough.

The Hunger Games – With Catching Fire coming out soon, this would be a great time to rewatch and refresh your memory.

Zoolander – I don’t care how many times you’ve seen this in the past 12 years, it’s time to watch it again. But just remember, it’s merman, Dad. Merman!

Boondock Saints – Having trouble surviving the six days between Daryl fixes on Walking Dead? Fill the gap with guns, accents and badassery. And Norman Reedus, of course.

Christmas Vacation – I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but it’s pretty much always time to watch this classic. At the very least, check out the animated opening credits (remember how that was a thing in the 90s?) with the grumpy reindeer and the Christmas Vacation theme song.

Find something else worth checking out on Netflix streaming? Let me know!

  1. I have convinced the boyfriend to watch The Hunger Games, so we’ll be doing that soon. And thanks for the heads up about Flight. Been on my To Watch list for awhile. Let’s see if I can find some time to see it before I forget about it again.

      • Flight is more than 2 hours long. Why do people insist on making movies longer than 100 minutes? People have OTHER THINGS TO DO. We got about an hour in before realizing we still had over an hour to go. So we stopped. We’ll probably continue at another time. We both enjoyed it, but damn.

      • Holy crap. Some movies run okay at 2 hours, 2 hours, 15 minutes but only some. I would’ve bet Flight was an hour and 45 or 50 minutes. I bet it’d be a much tighter movie if it was.

    • I hope you do! It’s probably better to watch it on your own and not near people who get all excited at certain parts. Even if you don’t like it, you’ll still have the opening credits to enjoy again and again.
