What To Watch On Netflix - Best Movies And Series This Bank Holiday Weekend

It's Bank Holiday weekend, which means sunshine, cans and the chance to strap in for a decent Netflix binge if the first two lead to a hangover.

If you're lucky enough to live in the UK anyway.

To help you make the most of your well-earned time off, we've spared you from trawling through hundreds of synopses, by compiling a list of unmissable television goodness.

All you need to do is nip to the shop on your way home, grab a ton of popcorn, draw the curtains and position yourself on your favourite chair. The weekend is about to begin, and nobody will get in your way. Without further ado, here's a list of the best movies and films to watch this weekend.



According to @NetflixUK, Sextuplets was the most watched title in the UK. The story follows father-to-be Alan as he comes to terms with the news that he was born a sextuplet. With his newfound brother Russell riding shotgun, the duo sets out on a journey to reunite with their remaining long-lost siblings. If you like Marlon Wayans, then you'll love it, as he plays six different characters. If you don't like Marlon Wayans, then there's six reason not to watch it.

13 Reasons Why

The third season of 13 Reasons Why comes out on Netflix today (23 August) so if you're up to date, you have 13 new episodes to watch.

The show follows a student Clay, a student who is trying to unravel the mystery of his friend's suicide using a box of cassette tapes the dead girl left behind. The show follows a myriad of difficult subjects such as bullying, voyeurism and sexual assault.

The Great Hack


If you've ever thought that your phone was listening to your conversations, then this is for you. The Great Hack is a documentary that shows how our personal data is being used to change our behaviour against our interests.

It explores the theory that a company called Cambridge Analytica steered presidential elections and the Brexit vote by the unethical use of data mining and psychographics (Cambridge Analytica denies this). It's as gripping as it is educational and one hundred percent worth a watch whether or not you have an interest in politics. Warning: It'll leave you questioning every decision you've ever made.

Pulp Fiction

With the release of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood this week, there's never been a better time to re-watch cult classic, Pulp Fiction. If you haven't already seen it, then you're in for a treat.


The film follows two hitmen, played by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta on a mission to retrieve a suitcase stolen from their employer. Their story gets interwoven with unforgettable characters played by Uma Thurman and Bruce Willis to name a few. It's got violence, mayhem and redemption in abundance and we can promise you that you'll be quoting it for weeks after.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

If you're after a light-hearted and often heart-warming season with characters you'll learn to love then look no further than Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Based in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, an eclectic team of detectives set out to solve crimes and have fun while doing it. It's an easy watch, but one that will suck you in so much that you'll miss the team long after you've watched the last episode.



From the outside, Joe looks like the perfect boyfriend. He's doting, will never forget your anniversary and will do anything to keep his girl happy. Unfortunately, that's the problem - he will literally do ANYTHING to keep his girl happy. The story follows his pursuit of an aspiring writer named Beck. It's thrilling, clever and gets very dark as his calm exterior begins to unravel over ten enthralling episodes.

Now all you have to do is grab a bottle of wine and your weekend is sorted.
