The Departed is now on Netflix in the US (again)

Welcome to your weekend recap of what’s been added to Netflix in the US and take a look at what’s been trending in the US top 10 over the past week.

Looking ahead, this is going to be an extremely busy week for Netflix. Not only do they announce a slew of new releases through their Geeked Week deals, but they also release titles like First murder, Hustleand Peaky Blinders.

Now let’s move on to some highlights and the full list of 62 new movies and shows added.

Back on Netflix this weekend is Straight Up, a movie with an impressive 93% on RottenTomatoes. The LGBTQ Story is a romantic comedy about a gay man who has OCD who enters a relationship with a woman only to not engage in more intimate things.


The dead (2006)

Gender: Crime, Drama, Thriller

One of the unannounced additions to Netflix US this week was the return of The Departed which features an all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson.

The film recently topped Netflix’s top 10 in the UK, so it was surprising that it wasn’t able to replicate that success in the US, so we’re giving it a nod here.

Winner of 4 Oscars, Martin Scorsese’s film (which made the news this week as far as Netflix is ​​concerned) is perhaps one of the director’s best and a welcome re-release.
