Arguably one of the greatest television shows ever made, and one of the greatest stories told from WW2, HBO’s Band of Brothers is available to stream on Netflix for the very first time.

“The story of Easy Company of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division and their mission in World War II Europe, from Operation Overlord to V-J Day.”

Love at First Sight (2023) N

Director: Vanessa Caswill
Genre: Drama, Romance | Runtime: 90 Minutes

We expect Love at First Sight to be one of the most-watched movies on Netflix this weekend and despite having mixed reviews on the whole, our movie critic loved the new rom-com entry.

Based on the book The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, the movie sees Hadley and Oliver strike up an unlikely romantic relationship while on a red-eye flight from New York to London. Can they keep the magic alive after they land? You get to find out in this excellent hour and a half movie.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

One of the best performances of Leonardo DiCaprio’s career, The Wolf of Wall Street continued the actor’s incredible track record of working with Martin Scorsese.

“A New York stockbroker refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration. Based on Jordan Belfort’s autobiography.”

One of the most anticipated Danish titles on Netflix, there shouldn’t be a single subscriber sleeping on Ehrengrad this weekend. If you love Bridgerton (and still are waiting for season 3) or The Crown, this lavish period drama is for you.

“In the fairytale kingdom of Babenhausen, a young, self-appointed expert on love, Mr. Cazotte, is hired by the scheming Grand Duchess to help her secure an heir. While searching for a suitable future Princess, Mr Cazotte teaches the timid and introverted Crown Prince Lothar the art of seduction and lovemaking. But their plan soon backfires, when an heir is conceived out of wedlock and the royal family has to seek refuge in the castle of Rosenbad. Here, as rivals within the royal family close in on their scheme, Cazotte himself falls in love with Ehrengard, the maid of honor, and gradually learns that in fact, he’s no expert on love at all.”
