One of my favorite ways to spend Friday night or Saturday night is by curling up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and a movie I haven’t seen before. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be a “new” movie; just something that’s new to me will suffice. That’s the beauty of Netflix. Even if the streaming service doesn’t always have brand-new original films coming out, you can usually always count on some great older films making it to the service.

This weekend, that of March 24-26, Netflix subscribers have several excellent Netflix movies to choose from, including a genuinely frightening horror film from 2019 that flew under the radar when it was first released and an acclaimed, Oscar-nominated feature starring Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. There’s also at least one new animated special to check out that should entertain the entire family. Even better, it’s interactive!

Best Netflix movies to watch this weekend

Regardless of what genre you love, these Netflix movies are sure to appeal to a broad range of viewers and tastes. Keep reading to find out which ones are worth watching and which ones you can skip.


Watch! Carol is the 2015 Oscar-nominated period romance film starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, directed by Todd Haynes and based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel The Price of Salt. The film follows Mara’s character, a photographer named Therese, who finds her entire world shifted when she meets the beautiful Carol Aird. If you never got the chance to watch this movie before, now is a perfect time.

Dragged Across Concrete

Skip! If you love crime movies and cop thrillers, then this film might appeal to you, but Mel Gibson isn’t exactly a popular guy these days, and thus many who don’t enjoy his acting or movies will be better off skipping this 2018 feature.

I See You

Watch! Helen Hunt stars in this terrifying and underrated horror film from 2019 following a man investigating the disappearance of a 12-year-old boy. The small-town detective’s investigation into the case begins causing dark and troubling problems for him and his family.

Money Shot: The Pornhub Story

Skip! This new Netflix documentary film has an interesting premise, but unfortunately it fails to choose a point of view and spends more time trying to play “both sides” without ever really delving into the legitimate criminal accusations that have been made against Pornhub and how many victims are still suffering to this day.

We Lost Our Human

Watch! We Lost Our Human is a fun and interactive animated Netflix special following Pud the Cat and Ham the Dog on an epic journey to save their beloved owner when they wake up one day to discover all of the humans are gone.
