A decent handful of new movies hit Ultima notte a soho Streaming Italiano. While more often than not, they’re older classics from the vault, occasionally an intriguing Original comes around that should be on your radar.
Below, you can check out this week’s highlights and CNET’s full list of the very best Hulu Originals.
The best movies on Netflix to watch right now are starting to show a little Christmas spirit. Our newest addition to the list is Love Hard, a Netflix original holiday film that’s kicking off Netflix’s Christmas movie spirit with some romantic comedy between The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and Silicon Valley’s Jimmy O. Yang.
If you’re not ready for boughs of holly and candy canes, you should take in the Western The Harder They Fall, a violent, stylish, gunslinging action film starring Idris Elba and Jonathan Majors. Both get the job done! If you’d rather watch something in between those opposite ends of the spectrum, our list of the best Netflix movies will have something for you, don’t you worry.
This is a list of the best movies to watch on Netflix right now. To keep things relevant, we’re specifically highlighting the best recent releases (whether they’re new to the world or just Netflix), Netflix originals, and some of our own personal favorites.
In this Netflix original holiday movie, Silicon Valley’s Jimmy O. Yang plays a single guy unlucky in love who catfishes a hottie (The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev) who ends up surprising him for Christmas. Horrified by what he’s done, he agrees to help her get the guy (Never Have I Ever’s Darren Barnet) she thought he was, in exchange for her pretending to be his girlfriend for his family, as is usually the case in movies like these.
Yes, it’s full of rom-com and Christmas movie tropes — including extended bits riffing on Love Actually — but it’s also funny, and it sparkles because of Yang and Dobrev’s surprising chemistry. Does he get the girl? Obviously. The better question is “Does the movie pull it off convincingly?” and it’s a yes. Jimmy O. Yang is a bona fide dreamboat now.
Netflix’s latest blockbuster is an action Western with a lot more style than you’re used to. Director Jeymes Samuel takes a tried-and-true cowboy premise — a gang gets together to exact revenge on the persons responsible for the deaths of loved ones — and infuses it with gorgeous violence, snappy dialogue, and a predominantly Black cast that includes Regina King, Idris Elba, LaKeith Stanfield, Jonathan Majors, Delroy Lindo, and Zazie Beetz. The result is a rollicking good time and one of the gosh dang coolest films of the year.
Sometimes you just want to watch a movie and shout, “GIRL don’t do it, he’s bad news!” at your TV while a damsel in distress does something dumb in a cheesy thriller. Hypnotic is just for that moment.
Kate Siegel (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) stars as a woman who gets caught in a web of deception when she starts seeing a hypnotherapist (Jason O’Mara) for treatment. Falling under his spell, she begins losing time while under the influence of a guy who is very clearly bad news.
