- Happy New Year and welcome to the latest What’s on Netflix top 50 movies currently streaming on Netflix for January 2019. Our selection covers a mix of the best comedy. Jan 6, 2019 by Kasey Moore.
Ready to watch something new on Netflix this weekend? Here is a list of all the best new shows and movies released on Netflix this week. After whatever last week was (let's all try to collectively forget ), Netflix bounces back slightly with a better lineup of new releases. It's still a light schedule; only seven original shows and films are due. But at least one of them, a teen sex comedy from England, looks like a winner. Below I go through all the Netflix releases this week, and if you're looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, click over to our. The Biggest Releases Sex Education, Season 1 Our pick o' the week comes from jolly old England, where the kids snog and shag and other Brit slang to their hearts' content, apparently.
The premise here is that an awkward high schooler who is so frightened of having sex that he can't even wank starts offering sex therapy at school — something he's become a bit of an expert at since his mom (Gillian Anderson) is a well-known sex therapist herself. It's a bit more graphic than your typical sex romp (penis alert!), but it also has heart that others lack and offers up actual advice for those who fumble around with the whole 'doin' it' thing. This is going to be a hit with the kids, and at least it's healthier than 13 Reasons Why. Friends From College, Season 2 The big deal with this show in Season 1 was its cast, which includes Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage, Nat Faxon and Billy Eichner.
From the biggest Netflix Original films to the best TV series, check out all the best new releases to watch on Netflix UK.
The big knock on it is that they all played terrible, irredeemable, selfish characters who were impossible to like. Both are still true in Season 2 — if these were your friends from college, you'd be hanging out with your friends from high school — as the fallout from Ethan and Sam's affair craters the group's harmony. The good thing is that the antics they get into can be pretty fun, like a trip to trashy Atlantic City or a night out at a Polish dance club, and at times it speaks poignantly about the mistakes we make. If you liked Season 1, you'll like Season 2. Everything Else. The Last Laugh Maybe you hate Chevy Chase like most people, but remember: He was Fletch, Ty Webb AND Dusty Bottoms! And he's whoever this is, some talent agent who meets up with his first client (Richard Dreyfuss) and convinces him to get back on the road for a stand-up tour.
It's old people making jokes, the movie! Back With the Ex, Season 1 When not fending off vicious wombats, Australians are looking for love, and what better place to look for love than where you've already found it? This dating show has four former couples giving it another go, because falling back to your ex is always a healthy thing to do. Solo This isn't the Star Wars movie — though, too. Instead, it's a Spanish movie about a surfer who goes to remote location for some killer waves, bro, but he gets hurt and then ALMOST DIES.
While he's floating around the ocean waiting for Neptune's seaweedy hands to drag him to the bottom of the ocean for eternity, he flashes back to his past, where his life was presumably better than it is while he's near-drowning. This looks great. But the reviews say otherwise. Revenger Dude who doesn't look like he can kick a lot of ass kicks a lot of ass in this martial arts movie. He's also in the act of getting revenge, hence the title.

Below are the most interesting of what we’ve found for new movies and TV series coming to the major streaming services in January, followed by a roundup of all the best new titles in all genres. (Streaming services occasionally change schedules without giving notice.) ‘Comedians of the World’ Starts streaming: Jan.
Forty-seven stand-up comics from around the world trot out their best bits in this series of half-hour specials, which offers an excellent opportunity to sample new and diverse comedic voices. Want to get out of a sexually awkward situation? Aditi Mittal, who hails from India, has a foolproof excuse for you to try. Thinking of getting a Brazilian wax?
The Canadian-American comic DeAnne Smith will slap that out of you. Didn’t think it was kosher to joke about H.I.V./AIDS? Loyiso Madinga (South Africa) thinks you should give it a try. Concerned about racial profiling? Nazeem Hussain (Australia) explains how he’s learned to use it to his advantage. It’s the funniest trip you can take without leaving your couch.
— ‘ ’ Starts streaming: Jan. 1, on Netflix. The director Guillermo del Toro knows nightmares — whether they be fantastical (here, the Pale Man, with eyes in the palms of his hands) or all too real (the fascism under the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco). A pensive little girl named Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) tries to navigate both kinds of horrors as her everyday world becomes tangled with a symbolic one. Watch out for the slime-spewing toads!
‘ ’ Starts streaming: Jan. 3, on Amazon.
Debra Granik’s beautifully observed story focuses on a father (Ben Foster) and daughter (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, in a breakout performance) who are living off the grid in the wilds of a big nature preserve. Civilization isn’t very far away, however, and it begins to intrude, attempting to force this stripped-down family unit into a conventional lifestyle. The movie asks fundamental questions: What is “home,” and how important is community? The answers, like the two extraordinary leads, are deeply moving.
‘Support the Girls’ Starts streaming: Jan. Lisa Conroy (Regina Hall) is the manager at a Texas sports bar that’s not unlike a Hooters (it’s called Double Whammies), and she’s having a rough day. Her marriage is collapsing, someone is trapped in one of the bar’s air vents, a waitress needs to be bailed out of jail, and — maybe worst of all — the cable’s out on fight night. This movie is warm and unforced, about the intersections of sex and sisterhood and working-class solidarity. Mainly, though, it’s very funny.
—. ‘ ’ Starts streaming: Jan. It may require more than one viewing to fully process the eerie beauty of this one-of-a-kind sci-fi movie. The mysterious forest into which Natalie Portman and her team of fellow scientists are delving is a zone of dreamlike interspecies mutations, and the director Alex Garland (“Ex Machina”) enhances its otherworldly strangeness with a woozy score and unique sound design.
Amid all the surreal visuals there are jolts of horror, and the virtually wordless conclusion has a haunting ambiguity. ‘Eighth Grade’ Starts streaming: Jan. 13, on Amazon. Middle school can be the worst, as you may well remember — especially today, when kids are marinated in status-obsessed social media and pressured to perform on multiple platforms. Lovably awkward Kayla (Elsie Fisher) vlogs on YouTube, where she dispenses basic advice (“Be yourself”). But Kayla could herself use some advice as she attempts to navigate her last week of eighth grade in a pond of popular girls and hormonal boys who all seem so much cooler than she is. The writer-director Bo Burnham, in his feature debut, approaches the queasy teenage unease with a gentle fascination.
‘True Detective’ Season 3 Premiere Starts streaming: Jan. Season 1: brilliant. Season 2: bad — very bad, actually. Now Season 3 is here, hoping to recapture your attention, and the good news is, it has potential. The story, set in the Ozarks, takes place along multiple timelines between 1980 and 2015, and stars Mahershala Ali (at maximum brood here) as an Arkansas state detective haunted by a case involving two missing children. The story here isn’t as philosophically resonant as Season 1, but it’s more nuanced, and rich with noirish twists and turns and real-life overtones (at one point it recalls the case of the West Memphis Three). It’s all compellingly strange, and worthy of your renewed interest.

‘FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened’ Starts streaming: Jan. The was initially billed as a luxury package music extravaganza in the Bahamas: Yachts! Private jets!
But the 2017 party never started and was soon the target of bitter jokes, class-action lawsuits. How did it go so wrong? This documentary tracks the event’s many problems, and it’s hard to decide which is the most outrageous revelation. Is it that the organizer/grifter Billy McFarland (now serving a federal prison sentence on wire fraud charges) actually instructed one of his crew to bribe a customs agent with sexual favors? Or that stranded attendees wound up locked inside a local airport without food or water?
It’s a fascinating disaster, its only bright spot being that it didn’t happen to you. — ‘ ’ Starts streaming: Jan.
Charlize Theron gives yet another knockout performance as the bedraggled Marlo, a woman who is ground down by her third pregnancy and, after the baby arrives, desperate for help. (Her loving husband is away a lot on business.) Suddenly an effervescent young woman named Tully (Mackenzie Davis) turns up to provide night-nanny assistance, offering much-needed advice, companionship and fresh-baked cupcakes. Marlo slowly gets her life back (“It’s like I can see color again,” she marvels), but just when you think you see a happy ending on the horizon, the story takes a major left turn, and the director Jason Reitman and the writer Diablo Cody bring it into a whole new emotional realm. The movie casts a magical spell that’s likely to stick with you after the end-credits roll.
