Another weekend is upon us, and that means it’s time to figure out what is on your watchlist for the first weekend of March. Since the first week of the month is when Netflix adds older movies to its catalog, our list this week highlights some of the best (and worst) of the newly added features. Which Netflix movies will you watch this weekend?

Will you revisit the YA dystopian blockbuster franchise The Hunger Games? The R-rated buddy comedy film The Hangover? Or maybe you’ll try a historical drama like The Other Boleyn Girl? For those unsure of what they want to watch, our list should help you choose what to add to the top of your queue, and what you can skip over for now.

Best Netflix movies to watch this weekend

Are you looking for something fun to watch this weekend? Below we’re highlighting some of the best Netflix movies to check out!

The Hunger Games movies

Watch! Even after all these years, The Hunger Games remain a timely and excellent film franchise. With the prequel film releasing later this year, now is the perfect time to revisit all four movies. Netflix added all of them to the service at the start of March, and I still think The Hunger Games films are some of the best book-to-film adaptations of all time, particularly Catching Fire.

The Hangover movies

Skip! The first movie in The Hangover trilogy is still worth a watch if you’ve never seen it, but the second and third films aren’t anywhere near as funny or culturally relevant as the one that started it all. Netflix added the trilogy to the service on March 1, but if you’re pressed for time just watch the first one and skip the other two.

The Other Boleyn Girl

Watch! Historical drama and soap opera antics meet in the middle in this Tudors-era film starring Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana based on Philippa Gregory’s novel of the same name. While it didn’t appeal to critics, The Other Boleyn Girl is an extravagant and sometimes silly film that should keep you hooked from start to finish. It follows the scandalous affairs of King Henry VIII (Bana) and the Boleyn sisters, Anne (Portman) and Mary (Johansson).

This is Where I Leave You

Skip! The 2014 film This is Where I Leave You might have a crazy talented cast with stars like Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Jane Fonda, and Connie Britton, but sadly the actors can’t save this movie. It’s not the worst thing you’ll ever watch and if you’re a fan of any of the actors you might even enjoy it. But overall This is Where I Leave You just feels rather lazy, slow, and predictable.

Easy A

Watch! Do you ever miss the era of teen comedies from the early 2000s? Emma Stone’s breakout role in Easy A was one of the last of its kind, released at the tail end of the trend in 2010. It’s such a fun movie and a hilarious riff on The Scarlet Letter. Plus, besides Stone, the film also features You actor Penn Badgley as a legitimately charming romantic lead rather than a creepy serial killer!
