Eurovision and more are good Netflix movies this weekend

There’s plenty to watch on Netflix right now, and there are some great new releases this weekend. Cut out the overwhelm with our list of top Netflix movies to watch from June 27-28.

This list isn’t just made up of movies to watch from the past week. We’re also looking ahead at the movies that are disappearing from the streaming service. Make sure you don’t miss out.

Here are our five top Netflix movies to watch this weekend.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

We’ll start our list with a comedy because you’re going to need it when you look at the other movies on this list. Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams star as two singers with one dream: to make it to Eurovision. Of course, they are chosen to represent their country, which leads to plenty of comedic moments as everything that could go wrong does go wrong.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is an over-the-top comedy. If you’re not a fan of Ferrell’s comedy, then it could be a little too much at points, but McAdams helps to balance things out.

Athlete A

In the mood for a documentary? Athlete A is a must-watch. It looks into the reporters who broke the story about Larry Nassar’s abuse of the USA Gymnastics team, along with inclusions of the women and girls involved.

This isn’t an easy watch. There are lots of moments that will make you angry about the abuse that was allowed to happen. However, there’s hope that this will bring change.


Kirsten Dunst has done a variety of movies, but this one is completely different to what you’re used to. Woodshock is a dark thriller from A24, telling the story of a woman who takes a drug that is potent and causes a detachment from reality.

We watch as she spirals out of control. This is a hard watch. It can be confusing in parts, but there’s a deeper story if you’re willing to pay close attention. You’ll want to put down the phone while you watch!


One of the Netflix movies leaving on July 1 is the found-footage horror movie Cloverfield. It focuses on a group of friends who has to fight to survive when their city is rocked with an invasion. At first, they have no idea what it going on and we learn everything at the same time as them.

This is one of those movies that makes great use of jump scares while also making you wonder what exactly is going on in the outside world.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Finally, it’s one of the most heartbreaking movies ever, which is leaving Netflix on July 1. Based on the novel of the same name, we see the concentration camps through the eyes of two boys. One is a German whose father runs the camp. The other is one of the Jews inside the camp.

There’s a chance to see life for the children of German soldiers, the things they were taught about the camps and reasons they believed in the Third Reich. At the same time, we see as life of the camps is revealed. Sex Education’s Asa Butterfield plays the German boy in a haunting story.
