Popcorn On Couch’s ninth edition of 5 movies to watch on Netflix, where I find good and entertaining films on Netflix U.K for you to watch over the weekend. Here are 5 movies to watch over the weekend of December 17th.

An Education

Genre: Drama, Romance, Coming Of Age

A coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London, and how her life changes with the arrival of a playboy nearly twice her age. A charming & enjoyable coming of age film starring Carey Mulligan who delivers a fantastic performance.

If you are in the mood for something dramatic, charming and sweet, make sure to watch An Education this weekend


Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller

Paul a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq, finds himself buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. For a film that focuses on one character in a coffin throughout, Buried still does a good job of making the viewer feel intense. With a solid performance from Ryan Reynolds & a strong ending, Buried is worthwhile.

If you are mood for something intense, thrilling, unique, gripping and dark make sure to give Buried a watch this weekend

Gone Girl

Genre: Drama, Crime, Mystery

With his wife’s disappearance, having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent. If you haven’t seen it, now is your chance to watch this superb and unpredictable mystery film directed by David Fincher.

If you are in the mood for something dramatic, unpredictable, surprising and intense then Gone Girl is the perfect film for you.

Requiem For A Dream

Genre: Drama

The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep. A really good film with great cinematography and strong direction, Requiem For A dream shows the lives of 4 different people in such an interesting way that no matter how disturbing it gets you still want to watch.

If you are in the mood for something dramatic, dark, depressing and realistic then check Requiem For A Dream.

The Siege Of Jadotville

Genre: Action, Drama

Irish Commandant Pat Quinlan leads a stand off with troops against French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo during the early 1960s. Based on a true story, The Siege Of Jadotville is an engaging action-packed movie, with well-shot, gripping battle scenes and a interesting story about war and politics.

If you are in the mood for something action-packed and dramatic then check out The Siege Of Jadotville this weekend.

  1. All great options, although I’d have to pick/suggest An Education 🙂 It’s so dreamy and wonderful!

  2. Great call on Gone Girl and Requiem for a Dream. Both are magnificent. I personally didn’t like An Education, but I know many do, so it’s still a good recommendation. Thanks for the reminder on Buried. I keep meaning to watch it, but never do. Haven’t heard of the last movie, thank you for putting it on my radar.
