It's been a long, looooooong week (surely that can't just be us?!), and tbh we've been looking forward to a good flake out in front of the TV for the entire weekend.

Gallivanting around town is all well and good now but sure a night in the dressing gown and the feet up wins every time.

The only slightly stressful thing is choosing what the feck to watch: Netflix kinda has too much choice sometimes, which is why we've taken a look at this week's new releases and picked the best of the bunch for you to check out.

Here's what you should flick onto tonight:


This crime drama is based on a true story and tells the tale of a soldier who served a traumatic tour in Iraq gets a job as a prison guard and is drawn into an underworld of corruption, drug trafficking and brutality.

Dramatic, but excellent viewing.

Norm Macdonald: Hitler's Dog, Gossip & Trickery 

In this new stand-up special, Norm Macdonald delivers sly and hilarious observations that you'll either love or hate. (We're betting it's love though!)

Check out this classic Norm joke to see what kind of vibe he has:

White House Down

While on a tour of the White House with his young daughter, a city policeman springs into action to save his child and protect the president from a heavily armed group of paramilitary invaders.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx = perfection.

Hot Fuzz

Even if you've seen this comedy classic before it's well worth a re-watch.

A London cop is basically dying of boredom after his superiors transfer him to a sleepy English village to work alongside a blundering young policeman.

 But soon enough, the town begins to liven up with a series of spooky "accidents."

Diving Into The Unknown

When a cave diving expedition suffers a tragic accident, four survivors defy authorities and return in secret to retrieve the bodies of their friends.

This is a shocking true story of the lengths four Finnish friends went to honour their diving mates.


Four friends on their way to Coachella stop off in Los Angeles to tour true-crime occult sites, only to encounter a mysterious young runaway who puts them on a terrifying path to ultimate horror.

Not the best horror movie you'll ever watch but if you're in the mood for a few silly jumps and some easy watching give this a go.

What did we ever do without Netflix?!
