What’s new to Netflix
For dark humor and questionable decisions: The End of the F***ing World
The dark and witty series “The End of the F***ing World” follows James (Black Mirror‘s Alex Lawther), a high school student who is convinced that he is a psychopath ready to kill. Alyssa (Jessica Barden) is a self-made outcast who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Together they form an unlikely alliance that leads to a life-changing journey.
For an existential crisis: Black Mirror: Season Four
The much-anticipated fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s sci-fi horror anthology premiered Dec. 29 after months of speculation from fans. A thoughtful portrayal of what out futures could look like, Black Mirror has the reputation for leaving the viewer uneasy and confused, but entertained. Season four is no exception.
For those who feel unlucky in love: Lovesick: Season Three
Netflix’s Lovesick follows Dylan, a single man in his 20s who has little luck with love, as he revisits his previous partners upon discovering that he has contracted a sexually transmitted disease. Episodes are presented mainly through flashbacks that show the growth of Dylan and his friends Luke and Evie as they navigate life and love. Season three focuses on these core relationships more than the previous two seasons do.
If you miss the good ol’ days: Bring It On
It’s 2000 again, and the cheerleaders of Rancho Carne High School are about to compete for their sixth-straight national title. Starring Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku, Bring It On is a smart, humorous satire on the cheerleading world that doesn’t take itself too seriously. If you’re one for chick flicks with wit, this cult classic is perfect for you.
If you love the classics: The Godfather (Parts I, II and III)
To ring in the new year, Netflix added the entire Godfather trilogy to its library. The 1972 Frances Ford Coppola classic focuses on a New York crime family in the 1940s and is widely dubbed one of the greatest films in history. Starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, The Godfather is the perfect film for movie fans and lovers of drama.
