Love it or hate it, Shrek is now on Netflix. In our opinion, it’s an amazing addition to the streamer’s library – but we understand that people are against the film. To each his own! The 2001 classic follows a grumpy ogre and a hilarious donkey as they go on a mission to rescue Fiona, the sleeping princess trapped in a tower with a dragon. To be served with: onions, waffles, cake, etc.

One of Natalie Portman’s first roles, V for Vendetta follows the A-List actress as she befriends a villainous mastermind “V.” Donning a Guy Fawkes mask, the vigilante teaches her character about England’s various political cruelties. The movie is based on a DC comic and certainly feels like it could belong to something like The black Knight universe. As The Batman released in theaters this month, why not set the tone with this film?

Watch Christopher Nolan’s great war movie when it hits Netflix in March, a harrowing but brilliant look at the events that unfolded in May 1940. Set completely out of order, you’ll have a fascinating time trying to piece together this, exactly, happens at some point in the film. We recommend pairing it with another WWII movie darkest hourwhich returns in parallel to the administration of Winston Churchill.
