If you haven’t been keeping up with the latest Netflix releases or if you’re looking for your latest binge, you’ve come to the right place. From Emily in Paris to Enola Holmes, this is your destination for what’s hot on Netflix.
Emily in Paris
If you’re looking for a short show to become obsessed with, Emily in Paris is right for you. The show follows the main character, Emily, as she figures out the ins and outs of working at a marketing firm in Paris. While the show’s fashion and blog may be cringy at times, it doesn’t deviate from the fact that we all want Emily’s life.
Only ten episodes, each thirty minutes long, this short new series has to be your next binge. The numerous love interest combined with Lily Colin’s acting will surely keep your attention - it sure did mine for 5 hours straight. The whole show was a masterpiece of comedy. I really enjoyed it and I'm sure you will too. 10/10 recommend because it's just so good and made me rethink what I want my future life to look like.
Adam Sandler’s new movie, Hubie Halloween, is great if you have 103 minutes to spare. It combines comedy with a mystery to be a parody version of a 90s horror movie. It’s the perfect movie if you want a low brain usage movie that you can cozy up to on a Friday night.
While the acting is okay, the actors will sure catch your attention. Everyone from Julie Bowen to China Ann McClain is starring in it. If you’re like me and loved Cameron Boyce, a special tribute is paid to him by casting his best friend and fellow actor Karan Brar as the main antagonist. The only reason I watched it was because of Karan Brar and Cameron Boyce, and it turned out pretty good. I recommend watching it for the mystery part rather than everything else, nevertheless, it's a good movie if you have nothing else. 5/10, not amazing but the end was pretty good.
American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rule
Looking for your next teen rom-com to obsess over? This is the jackpot. Combining comedy with 4 love stories, it is a great watch -- although not with your parents. While it’s a spin-off of the American Pie franchise, you don’t need any background to watch this film. A great plus: you’ll enjoy seeing your favorite child actors all grown up in this film.
While the storyline is predictable, it’s enjoyable for those of us who have watched every other romance movie. It follows a friend group of four going after what they need most in their love lives. This movie is great for your next Netflix Party. It kept my attention the whole time and was pretty good. 8/10 recommend, good for older teens and very funny.
Julie and the Phantoms
This musical series is perfect for the theater kid in you. Julie joins forces with three ghostly guys to start a band after she lost her passion for music along with her mother. This is definitely next on my binge list and it should be on yours too.
While it is a children show, it appeals mostly to teens for obvious reasons. The good-looking cast, the chemistry between the characters, and the songs are immaculate. The show may seem like an old Disney show, but it’s worth watching.
The Devil All the Time
Starring Robert Patterson and Tom Holland, this film follows a young man who is devoted to protecting his family and friends in a town full of corruption and wicked characters. The movie does follow a religious theme and is overall dark and edgy. The acting is exceptional, the plot, not so much.
A consensus on Reddit seems to think the movie is a “waste of time.” I do agree to an extent. I haven’t watched the whole thing, but the amount I did, I was distracted by my phone the whole time. Not to discourage those who want to watch it, but just something to keep in mind. I still look forward to finishing the movie on my own and you should too.
The Great British Baking Show - Season 8
If you haven’t even watched a single season of this show, what are you doing? Season 8 is slowly coming out, and the show just keeps getting better. A complete contrast to American baking shows, this lovable, lighthearted show makes you fall in love with the show and the competitors.
This season already has a great start with 12 of the most talented bakers and the show stoppers that keep getting better. The diverse bakers all bring a part of them into their baking and the soft competition spirit makes it all the better. The competition is close this year. Start watching now if you haven’t already. One of my favorite shows to watch while doing homework. This season, all the bakers are so good, it's hard to pick a favorite. 9/10 recommend if you like baking, competition, or even just British people.
This is quite possibly the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Not only was the acting terrific, but the plot was also fantastic. Millie Bobby Brown really has outdone herself. The chemistry between the characters felt so real and it left me excited for a sequel - hopefully.
The movie follows Sherlock Holmes’ little sister, Enola, as she tries to find her way in life after her mother abruptly left her. Enola stumbles upon a boy whom she must help survive and solve the mystery before the murder. Without telling too much, the plot development and mystery left me in awe. This movie is a must-watch. I loved the strong female lead and while the ending was *SPOILER ALERT* sad, I wouldn't want it any other way. The movie perfectly brought together two very different storylines without making it seem awkward. 100/10 recommend.
Netflix has released some great shows and movies this past month. Perfect for you to binge or watch while doing homework. I would definitely recommend starting with Enola Holmes and moving your way down the list. I'll be anxiously waiting for the sequels to these new releases soon, and hopefully, you'll be waiting with me after watching these.
