Best Netflix movies to watch this weekend, July 14

Bird Box Barcelona

Watch! Fans of the 2018 movie starring Sandra Bullock won’t want to miss out on the first official spinoff sequel film set in the Bird Box universe created by author Josh Malerman. You might have guessed from the film’s title that this one will be set in Spain.

Bird Box Barcelona follows a father and daughter traversing the dangerous post-apocalyptic landscape of Barcelona as the mysterious illness that infects people through sight spreads throughout the world.

The Tutor

Skip! It pains me to give a skip to a movie starring Noah Schnapp as I’m a huge Stranger Things fan, and I think Noah is super talented, but The Tutor just isn’t all that good. This psychological thriller follows popular tutor Ethan (Garrett Hedlund), who lands a lucrative job teaching a billionaire’s son Jackson (Schnapp).

But it soon becomes clear that Jackson isn’t as sweet as he appears as he forms a dark obsession with his new tutor. If you, like me, are a fan of Noah’s, then maybe watch this anyway to support him. Otherwise, this is a relatively run-of-the-mill thriller, and you won’t be missing much by skipping.
