Welcome to a special roundup of some of the best new movies added to Netflix recently. With the United States having a long weekend, we’ll be expanding our date criteria to determine which movies can make it into our Best New Movies to Watch article. Here are 5 great movies recently added to Netflix that are worth your time

Unfortunately, it’s been a relatively quiet week for new movies, and looking ahead, it’ll be much the same for the week ahead. 2007 Halloween hits this week alongside the big new Netflix movie of the week in the form of A Madea Homecoming by Tyler Perry come Friday.

Black hat (2015)

Kind: Action, Crime, Thriller
Director: Michael Mann
To throw: Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei
Writer: Morgan Davis Foehl
Duration: 133 minutes
Awards: 1 victory and 5 nominations

Blackhat topped the Netflix charts this week despite the fact that when it first hit theaters it flopped. And hard.

The Hemsworth-starring action flick sees him play a convicted hacker who is temporarily freed to help authorities capture a bigger threat on the horizon.

Despite box office bombing, it’s a very competent action movie and if you’re a Hemsworth fan, you gotta give it a watch.

Chainsaw Massacre (2022)

Kind: Crime, Horror, Thriller
Director: David Blue Garcia
To throw: John Larroquette, Alice Krige, Nell Hudson
Writer: Chris Thomas Devlin, Fede Alvarez, Rodo Sayagues
Duration: 81 minutes

Dominating Netflix’s top 10 over the weekend is the poorly rated horror revival of the Texas Chainsaw franchise that sees Leatherface return after 50 years.

As expected, the film is like the cooking pot. You will either love it or hate it.

The good news is that if you don’t like the new one but you like the old titles, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) are still streaming with 3D Texas Chainsaw (2013) coming March 1.

Devil’s advocate (1997)

Kind: Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Director: taylor hackford
To throw: Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino, Charlize Theron
Writer: Andrew Neiderman, Jonathan Lemkin, Tony Gilroy
Duration: 144 minutes

A movie added to Netflix earlier this month that did not make it into Netflix’s top 10 is Devil’s advocate of the late 90’s.

The horror fantasy film sees standout performances from Reeves and Pacino and although it didn’t get top scores from critics when it was released, it has become one of the most underrated films for moviegoers. two actors.

Here’s what you can expect if you haven’t watched:

“The life of a hot young lawyer takes a hellish turn after he accepts an irresistible offer to join a New York law firm run by a powerful, ruthless broker.”

Handful of revenge (2022)

Kind: Action, Crime, Drama
Director: Roel Queen
To throw: Lewis Tan, Iko Uwais, JuJu Chan Szeto
Writer: Cameron Litvack, Yalun Tu
Duration: 94 minutes

If you’re looking for some mindless martial arts combat this weekend, check out Fistful of Vengeance which is a follow-up movie to Netflix’s Wu Assassins.

Although the story leaves a lot to be desired, there are some great settings that at least make a watch.

The biggest issue we had with this movie was how Netflix chose to market and release it. Since the film is so connected to Wu Assassins, you really have to give it a watch before diving into it, but alas, they did their best to separate the two.

A play Movies

Writers: Eichiro Oda, Hirohiko Uesaka

There’s never been a better time to step into the A play franchise given that filming for the live-action series is currently taking place as we speak.

The 2007 episode of Alabasta dropped alongside the 2008 film Episode of Chopper: Bloom in the Winter, Miracle Sakura on February 15.

More seasons of the main series One Piece are expected to arrive on Netflix in March 2022 along with those of 2009 strong world also expected to hit at some point too.
