Netflix

Netflix is always getting new content and flushing out old content. With the slew of Netflix originals that have been added over the past few years, Netflix is often getting knocked for the lack of focus on adding movies to their lineup.

While a new year doesn’t mean a new Netflix, this month Netflix has added films like The Godfather trilogy and a few others classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the complete Bring it On series.

There have been plenty of new Netflix original movies and series added to the service this month.

Read on for 5 movies to stream on Netflix this month.

While the entire Bring it On series was added to Netflix in January 2018, Bring it On should be the first one you watch for its iconic scenes. The film was followed by 5 sequels, all with different cast members.

The original Bring it On film follows Torrance Shipman, head cheerleader hopeful at Ranchero Carne High School in San Diego, California. Her world is turned upside down when one of the cheerleaders gets hurt and she must find a new member for the squad. Coupled with her old captain being accused of stealing cheers from neighboring squads, Torrance has quite the year ahead of her.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a timeless icon, possibly because of the fact that it stars Audrey Hepburn in her most iconic role. While the movie hasn’t aged extremely well, it is a classic and is still referred to in pop culture today.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a cosmopolitan fairy tale that follows 2 people finding themselves and setting themselves free.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s received 2 Academy Awards, one for Best Original Score and one for Best Original Song. The film was also nominated for awards, such as Best Actress for Hepburn, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Art Direction.


 The Truman Show

The Truman Show – TrailerHe's the star of the show–but he doesn't know. Jim Carrey wowed critics and audiences alike as unwitting Truman Burbank in this marvel of a movie from director Peter Weir (Witness, Dead Poets Society) about a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Truman doesn't realize that his quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary producer/director/creator (Ed Harris), that folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, that even his incessantly bubbly wife is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise. And what he does about his discovery will have you laughing, crying and cheering like few film stories ever have.2012-05-17T16:56:13.000Z

The Truman Show is a 1998 American satirical science fiction film. It’s fun to watch because of Jim Carrey’s funny performance and the overall ridiculous and interesting idea behind the plot.

The Truman Show was inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone. Originally more of a science fiction thriller, the movie ended up being more of a satire on society.

The film was a financial and critical success, earning numerous nominations at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Saturn Awards the year of release.
