Operation Christmas Drop is one of the must-see movies on Netflix this weekend

There’s plenty of original content to watch, whether you’re on Netflix, Amazon, or broadcast networks. There can be so much new content that you struggling to find the must-see movies on Netflix.

The weekend is a good chance to catch up on what you missed, but things can also be overwhelming. Here are the five good movies to narrow down your options depending on your mood.

Operation Christmas Drop

If you want something to get you in the holiday spirit already, Operation Christmas Drop is a must. The movie stars The Vampire Diaries‘s Kat Graham and Vikings‘s Alexander Ludwig. It sounds like it should be a documentary about celebrities on a Christmas drop, but that’s not the case.

It’s a Christmas rom-com about a congressional aide who looks into something called “Operation Christmas Drop.” Congress is looking to save money, and this is what’s going to be cut. Will she say that it needs to be saved or not, and will she fall in love along the way?


Next up is a movie for the current time. A student at one of Nigeria’s top colleges decides to speak out against her professor. That professor tried to rape her, and she doesn’t want it to happen to anyone else.

The problem is the professor is one of the most beloved in the business. It’s her word against his, and she could ruin her future by doing this. She’s going to stand up for what’s right, something so many women had done recently.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Need a comedy? We’re turning to the must-see movies on Netflix from the first of the month. Paul Blart: Mall Cop was one of the releases, and it’s one of those movies you can watch time and time again.

Paul Blart is an everyday mall cop with bigger dreams. When his mall is broken into one night, he finally gets to prove he’s more than just a mall security guard.

Easy A

Another of the must-see movies on Netflix is also from the first-of-the-month drop. Easy A stars Emma Stone as Olive, who lies to her best friend about losing her virginity. At first, it makes her the most popular girl in school, but rumors and lies can lead to major problems. And that’s exactly what is happening here.

It’s an excellent teen comedy and more than worth the watch if you’ve never seen it before.

The Endless Trench

Known as La trinchera infinita in Spain, The Endless Trench is set in 1936 Spain, just at the start of the civil war in the country. Higinio is a Republican who has spoken out about Franco’s army and the government. When he fears he will be killed for his actions, he goes into hiding under the floor of his house.

He and his wife hold onto hope that the Republic will win, but what if it doesn’t? What will happen to the family then?
