Each week, INSIDER rounds up a list of seven great movies to watch on Netflix over the weekend.
There aren’t many new additions this week. In addition to “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and Netflix original “Solo,” we’re taking it back to some classics with “Billy Madison” and “The Mummy.”
There’s so much content constantly added to and removed from Netflix that it can become difficult to find a movie to watch.
We’re here to help. Each week, INSIDER selects new and old flicks you may not have realized are on the streaming service to ease your scrolling woes.
From “Solo: A Star Wars Story” to a Netflix original called “Solo,” here are seven movies on the streaming service you should watch (along with their Rotten Tomatoes scores when available).
Note: Not all of these films are available in countries outside the United States.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story”
Netflix description: “A young Han Solo tries to settle an old score with the help of his new buddy Chewbacca, a crew of space smugglers and a cunning old friend.”
Critic score: 70%
Audience score: 64%
If you skipped seeing this one in theaters, the newest “Star Wars” movie is finally available to stream this week. Discover Donald Glover’s excellent performance as a young Lando Calrissian for the first time or indulge in his capes a second time.

Netflix description: “In a remote area of the Canary Islands, a surfer falls off a cliff. Fighting to survive, he reflects on his life and past romance. Based on true events.”
This “Solo” has nothing to do with being among the stars. If you don’t mind watching subtitles, the foreign language film, which translates to “Alone,” will have you rooting for a surfer as he makes the decision to fall from a cliff into the ocean. Injured and without a working phone, memories of a past relationship give him the strength to keep going during a journey of survival and self-discovery.
Netflix description: “A determined dog comes to the rescue and helps heal a broken family when a young boy and his sister stumble into some serious danger.”
If you can’t catch the new dog movie out this weekend, “A Dog’s Way Home,” an alternative is Netflix’s remake of the 1974 “Benji.” If may not be as good as the original, but it’s a cute kids’ film and it’s tough to resist the adorable puppy eyes given by the dog who plays Benji.
