There are a lot of things to celebrate this weekend between the arrival of David Fincher’s newest movie and the end of the lengthy SAG-AFTRA strike. It’s also Veteran’s Day weekend, which is a federal holiday, meaning most of us will get a three-day weekend in honor of the millions of people who have served in the U.S. military.
Since so many of us will be off for three days this weekend, it’s worth looking into what Netflix is offering in terms of new content. I have to admit, there’s not a ton of stuff on the table this weekend, but there definitely a few things worth checking out, including the aforementioned Fincher film, an addictive documentary series about a cult-y spiritual group designed to help people find their “twin flames,” and more.
Here’s what’s worth watching (or skipping) this Veteran’s Day weekend on Netflix.
The Killer is David Fincher’s latest movie, need I say more? For those out of the loop, Fincher is the Oscar-nominated filmmaker behind projects like Fight Club, Gone Girl, Se7en, Mindhunter, and The Social Network.
Michael Fassbender stars as an aloof hitman known for his methodical approach, but when a hit goes sideways, he finds himself battling against his employers and himself, as he slowly begins to unravel and question his own sanity. The Killer is based on the French graphic novel series by Alexis “Matz” Nolent and also stars Tilda Swinton.
Escaping Twin Flames
Escaping Twin Flames is the latest buzzworthy documentary series on Netflix and oof, let me tell you, this one is a doozy. Nothing about Twin Flames Universe founders Jeff and Shaleia Ayan seems genuine based on the clips and victim testimony presented in these three episodes.
The docuseries centers around the business and its alleged predatory practices to “help” its members find their true love, or “twin flames,” as they’re also called. But the doc really pulls back the curtain and allows former members to share what being part of the company what was really like for them.
Resident Evil: Death Island
Let me preface this by saying there’s nothing particularly bad about this Resident Evil film and it’s actually quite fun with many notable characters like Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and Claire Redfield, but it might not be of much interest to people who aren’t already fans of the Resident Evil franchise. If you’re just looking for something scary to watch, check out some of these horror movies on Netflix.
Adam Sandler‘s best movie is now streaming on Netflix. Alongside a wave of other A24 films, Netflix has added Uncut Gems from directors Benny and Josh Safdie. Sandler stars as a jeweller who makes a high-stakes bet in the hopes of gaining a significant amount of money, but it’s a dangerous game and he has to balance a lot of different factors in the hopes of securing the win.
