This week, Netflix gets a mixed bag of thriller, mysteries and action from the mainstream Hollywood to their list. Here’s the list:

The Girl on the Train:

This is not the famous film, but another, independent film that stars Henry Ian Cusack, Nicki Aycox, Stephen Lang, David Marguiles, Charles Aitken, James Biberi and Waltrudis Buck. This indie film is about a documentary maker who gets sucked into a vortex of mystery and intrigue when he tries to strike a friendship with a woman that catches his attention, while he is traveling in a train. This indie film has an intensity that will keep the audience all tracked up and a mystery that’s a niggling question that’ll remain in their mind – until they reach the end of it all.

4.3.2.1:

Here’s proof that Netflix is at least interested in female oriented crime films. 4.3.2.1 is a crime comedy from 2010 that is about four girls who must navigate through two cities to carry out a heist. The film is one of the lesser known of Emma Roberts and has its moments and Emma Roberts, of course, is the cream of the cake.

101 Dalmatians:

Netflix has less Disney content, though it has the Marvel series to stream. However, that might change with the number of Disney classics coming to Netflix, with the latest being 101 Dalmatians, the Disney classic that has one of the most memorable villains in cinema’s history, Cruella DeVille. This is not the animated classic though, it is the live action film that stars none other than Glenn Close.

The Accountant:

There are few things that Ben Affleck can’t do. He has successful directed a film, he has played Batman, and, on the side, he does some interesting sci-fi stuff – like The Accountant. Whereas the name might be one of the most boring, the film is an interesting, with an intriguing premise and some excellent action sequences.

Battleship:

Films made on games are somehow doomed to fail. This film based on the popular game from the 70s and 80s made its way into a film’s script. While it didn’t do well at the box office, it does make for some good spectacle viewing on the small screen.

These are the top five mainstream films that landed on Netflix this week. Happy Bingeing!
