New on Netflix this weekend: The Dirt, The OA and more

Other than two big titles, there’s not much else worth watching on Netflix this weekend.

Netflix subscribers are used to seeing a bundle of new additions on Netflix each week. Lately, however, there are only 2-3 great ones here and there. Don’t get me wrong, what’s good on Netflix is brilliant, but we also enjoy having several options.

This weekend, beginning Friday, March 22, sees the debut of the Netflix Original film, The Dirt, as well as the second season of The OA after a two-year break. Below, we’ve also added two other titles that premiered earlier this month for you to have on your radar in case you missed previously missed them.

The Dirt

First up is the musical biopic The Dirt, starring Machine Gun Kelly, Douglas Booth, Daniel Webber and Iwan Rheon. The movie follows the band of the same name and is based on the autobiography from Mötley Crüe. As we stated beforeThe Dirt is a lot of fun and fans of the band will particularly have a great time. However, there’s nothing award-worthy or ground breaking about the movie.

The OA Part II

The mind-twisting series first premiered in 2016. It’s been over two years and The OA has returned with Season 2. The series takes viewers on a journey to a new dimension as they follow OA as she finds herself being a Russian heiress in this new reality. Here’s more from the official Netflix synopsis:

“Part II introduces Karim Washington, a private detective tasked with finding a missing teen. His path crosses with OA, as they try to solve the mystery of the teen’s whereabouts and a house on Nob Hill connected to the disappearance of several teenagers.”

If you have never seen the series, both seasons are only 8 episodes long and streaming now on Netflix. Catch up on The OA this weekend!

Amy Schumer’s Growing

For nonstop laughs, watch Amy Schumer’s Growing. I’ll be the first to admit I was harsh at first and reluctant to watch. I did however, just to see what it was all about, and ended up loving it. I’m talking actually laughing out loud.

Turn Up Charlie

Can we call this what it is and say Idris Elba’s Turn Up Charlie is unfairly and severely underrated? Turn Up Charlie is so much fun to watch! You gotta love Elba’s charming persona in any role he takes on. The story is also very engaging, though at times frustrating. Not because there’s anything wrong with it, but you see Charlie with so much potential and wasting it all away due to his stubbornness. There is one complaint I have, though, and that’s the bratty child Gabrielle.
