5 things worth watching on Netflix this weekend

Focus on watching, not browsing.

Netflix 02.01.2016

It's always the same story - you want to watch something, but can't decide what. Don't worry - that's where we come in.

Every Friday we recommend five titles for you to watch on Netflix. Because we're nice like that. Because we care.

  1. 1 Cartel Land

    Category: Crime, Documentary

    An up-close look at two vigilante groups that have formed in Mexico in response to the increasing dominance of drug cartels.

    Sometimes on a weekend, you don't want something easy to watch; you certainly don't want Disney. This documentary will plunge you right into the centre of the drug cartel conflict in Mexico with intimacy and grit.

  2. 2 Titanic

    Category: Romance

    Distraught over her engagement to a cruel millionaire, a young woman falls for a struggling artist as they set sail across the atlantic.

    ...But you know the plot, don't you?

    Yes, you may have watchedTitanic 17 times already - but before the cynic in you has a chance to claw its way out, just put the movie on. Let the nostalgia and tears wash over you like the sea washes [spoiler alert] over Jack's dead body.

  3. 3 Bad Neighbours

    Category: Comedy

    After a rowdy fraternity moves next door to a couple with a newborn and changes the block into party central, an epic battle ensues.

    If you're not after heart-wrenching stuff this weekend, it's time to give Zac another chance since 17 Again. Hey, this film may not be a piece of art, but it's pretty watchable and you'll probably laugh at one of every three jokes made.

  4. 4 World War Z

    Category: Action

    A U.N. employee races against time and fate as he travels the world trying to stop the spread of a deadly zombie pandemic.

    If you thought that no zombie could make you feel fear again after 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead, give this film a go. These ones are horrifying, and this pandemic grips humanity on a global scale - meaning you really, really care what happens.

  5. 5 Precious

    Viciously abused by her parents, Harlem teen Precious has an unexpected chance at a different life when she enrols in an alternative school.

    Precious is what we hope every independent film of its kind will be. It's emotional, real, and pretty damn hard to stomach at times - if you can make it through, which you really should, you'll finish the film with plenty to think about.
