Whether you want comedy, drama, or horror, there is something for everyone this weekend. Here are the five must-see movies on Netflix from Feb. 20 to 21.

When I say there’s something for everyone, I mean it. Netflix has brought some excellent content throughout this week, and there’s more to come as the weekend progresses.

There is also a release from back on Feb. 1 that you may want to check out this weekend for the Julia Roberts fans. While there’s a romance element to it, the movie focuses on spirituality and personal growth, two things that are worth everyone focusing on right now with everything going on in the world.

So, let’s dive into the list of five must-see movies on Netflix this weekend. What are you going to end up watching?

5 must-see movies on Netflix this weekend

I Care a Lot

We start with the biggest release of the week. Peter Dinklage and Rosamund Pike star in I Care a Lot, a dramedy with a few lessons and a lot of questionable actions.

Pike stars as a woman who “helps” when people need to go to nursing homes. She becomes their legal guardian, but she’s not in it out of the goodness of her heart. Oh no! She’s in it for the money. What happens when she crosses the wrong person? You’re about to find out.

Operation Finale

For those looking for something serious and focused on history, Opeation Finale is the movie to turn to. Oscar Issac stars in this post-World War II movie following a team of Israeli agents who go to Argentina to find one of the highest-ranking Nazi officers.

This Nazi officer masterminded the transport that took the innocent Jewish people to concentration camps. The agents will do what it takes to find justice, but the Nazi officer will do what he can to evade capture.

The Conjuring (and its sequel)

Need a little horror in your life? The Conjuring is on Netflix on Feb. 21. You can watch the sequel on the same day, so really, you’re getting two must-see movies on Netflix for the price of one.

The movies probably don’t need any introduction. After all, the first movie spawned a franchise filled with twists and supernatural turns. Turn the lights off, grab the popcorn, and get ready for a few scares.

Xico’s Journey

We move onto a release from the previous week. While To All the Boys: Always and Forever was certainly the big release, there were other must-see movies on Netflix. One of those was Xico’s Journey, an animated movie about three friends in Mexico trying to save their village.

Two friends and a dog need to save the local mountain, a literal gold mine, from a company that wants the gold for itself. Everything is against them, but they’re willing to do whatever it takes to do what they believe is the right thing. The key could be in Xico, who can do far more than actually talk!

Eat Pray Love

Finally, it’s all about the movie that dropped at the start of the month. If you need something lighter but meaningful right now, Netflix has you covered. Eat Pray Love is a must-watch movie at any time of the year.

Julia Roberts stars as a woman who decides to find herself after a breakup. She heads around the world to understand more about food, spirituality, and love. Along the way, she figures out who she wants to be, but will she return home?
