I have been thinking about starting something like this for a while, as I know a lot of people who have a Netflix account, and theres so much added every day, every week, every month, that some titles go under the radar that I think deserves to be watched by viewers. You’re saying to yourself though, there is an app that can do this for me, that can tell me exactly what is new on Netflix and gives me a notification. That is absolutely correct, and that app is called UpFlix, if you have Netflix I definitely recommend this companion app (also if you don’t want to read this write up every week, the app will allow you to skip my thoughts and get right to the content. But if you’re like me and you’ve seen a lot or you’re looking for something new to watch, you can come here and read my opinions or if I have previously reviewed a film that was added to Netflix, I’ll post that too.

**Note** – This is only for Canadian Netflix, I’m sure they’ll be some similarities between American Netflix and Canadian, but it will definitely not all be the same.

Every Friday (but I’m starting each list on the first day of each month, whatever day it is, updates to come after that each friday for that week) I plan to post a new list of what as added, what I have seen and what I would recommend… thats the plan anyways. The Beginning of the month will consist of a lot more titles as hundreds are added. I will not tell you what has been removed from Netflix, as that is not my goal.

Any and all feedback is definitely appreciated

Keeping Up With The Joneses (Action & Adventure – 2016). It stars Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis – I may throw this on if I’m bored, but I wasn’t too intrigued from the trailers.

Momo Salon (TV Series {1 Season} 2014)

Night Of The Living Dead (Horror – 1990) I’ve wanted to see this for a while but couldn’t order the blu ray because it is Out Of Print and that means its going for a lot of money, I’m excited to finally watch it on Netflix, I’ve heard a lot of really good things about it.

Snowden (Dramas – 2015) – I need to revisit this movie, Edward Snowden is a super interesting character but I thought the movie was kind of slow, but thats typical for the director Oliver Stone.
