3. For those of you feeling deep

Get stuck into Full Metal Jacket, which is new to Netflix as of February 1. The 1987 classic is based around Stanley Kubrick’s take on the Vietnam War and is not for the faint hearted.

4. For those of you on a full blown sleepover 

If you’re successfully avoiding going out/hangovers/people, then Charlie’s Angels is the one for you. Equally as light-hearted and entertaining for girls as it is for boys. 

This film has a whopper soundtrack, cracking acting and an unbelievably brilliant cast. Ideal film to sit down and watch with a take-away.

5. For those of you feeling mushy

Armageddon. That is all.

6. For those of you who are super giddy

Johnny English has got you covered. Rowan Atkinson in his best role that involved him actually having lines. It’s stupidly brilliant and will have you cackling for hours.

Think of it as a grown-up Spy Kids. You can’t go wrong.

7. For those of you who want an Oscar winner

One of the best films on the list of additions to the Netflix library for this month is the Academy Award winning Atonement. It was Saoirse Ronan’s very first time on the silver screen, and Kiera Knightley’s best performance to date.

8. For those of you who like terrible films

Switch on The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom.

With 40% on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as guest appearances from Ms. Parton herself, it promises to be terrible, in the best way possible.

9. And finally, for those of you looking for a good soundtrack 

Dope is a 2015 American crime-comedy-drama film which stars some of Hollywood’s hottest, as well as being produced by Pharrell Williams and Diddy himself. 

It was a critical hit and an audience favourite at Sundance, and is for sure one to get stuck into this weekend.
