Netflix Australia Is Adding Some Seriously Cool Content This Weekendby Chris Jager
Netflix is unceremoniously dumping a bunch of movues this month, including bona fide classics like Vertigo, Dazed and Confused and Shakespeare In Love (shut up, I like it.) But it's partially making up for this via some seriously cool additions this weekend. Here is the full list.
Each month, Netflix adds tons of new movies and TV shows to its library. We've already listed everything coming to Netflix this month - but separating the critical gems from the box-office duds can be tricky.
To save you the trouble, we've shortlisted the best movies and TV shows that were either recently added, or are due to appear in the next few days. That's your week's viewing sorted!
