Sightless is one of the five must-see movies on Netflix this weekend, but there is something for everyone.

Netflix is starting to get quiet with its releases. We’re getting to the point of seeing what a summer of limited filming means for the streaming service. However, there are still plenty of movies to check out.

There really is something for everyone this week. It’s time to dive into the five must-see movies on Netflix from Jan. 23–24.

Top of the must-see movies on Netflix: Sightless

We start with the movie starring Riverdale‘s Madelaine Petsch. The reviews are relatively mixed, but if you love Petsch on the teen drama, then you’re going to want to see her in Sightless. For the majority of the movie, she has to convey everything without the use of her eyes.

After an attack that leaves her blind, a young woman needs to get used to the new normal. Of course, not everyone is as they claim to be, and she needs to figure out what’s going on around her.


Prefer a comedy? Friendsgiving is now on Netflix and is a must-watch. It stars Kat Dennings, Jane Seymour, Aisha Tyler, and Chelsea Peretti among other excellent female actresses.

After a breakup, a woman decides that she wants to host a thanksgiving with friends. Of course, that brings its own drama and hilarious moments. It’s a lighthearted movie that is sure to bring plenty of entertainment.


Next up on the list of must-see movies on Netflix is one from 2013. Fans of Jason Statham will certainly want to check this out. It’s a pretty standard action movie with Statham, but it just means you get to sit back and enjoy.

Statham plays a DEA agent who just wants to live a quiet life with his nine-year-old daughter in Homefront. Of course, things don’t go to plan when he crosses paths with a drug lord. Can any of these guys with “particular sets of skills” ever get the quiet life they want?

The White Tiger

If you’re looking for action with an inspirational story within it, you’ll want to turn your attention to The White Tiger. The Indian movie is about a driver who works his way to the top.

However, you might not want to follow his path. It’s not the most legal way to the top. However, he doesn’t care when it means becoming White Tiger. The movie is based on a book by Arvind Adiga.

Julie & Julia

We head back to the list of movies that dropped at the start of the month for the final pick. You may have overlooked Julie & Julia, starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, is set in two timelines. In one timeline, we see the life of the iconic Julia Child, and in the other, we meet food blogger Julie Powell who has big aspirations.

Julie decides to recreate every single recipe in Julia Child’s cookbook to become an expert at the style. Of course, there are ups and downs, but what happens when she gets to meet her icon?
