10 Films To Watch On Netflix

Before I start this post I just want to say I'm really sorry for not posting in almost a month, my laptop broke but it's all fixed now so expect lots of blog posts :)

I like probably every young person in this day and age am obsessed with Netflix. I love nothing more than watching a TV series/film on my laptop with loads of junk food and drinks! So in this blog post I am going to say what my 10 favourite films that are currently on UK Netflix are (November 2016)

These are in no particular order ....

                         Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging

Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging is without doubt in my top 5 all time fave films. It will leave you laughing out loud and is the perfect film to watch at a sleepover/girly catch up. The film is based on the Louise Rennison books (which I highly recommend to read) and follows the love of 14 year old Georgia Nicholson, and the stresses she faces planning her 15th Birthday party and trying to get a boyfriend. 

Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List

Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List is a film all about 2 best friends who do practically everything together. They are so close they've even made up a list of people they are forbidden to kiss. This film will take you on an emotional journey about falling for the wrong person and kissing someone you shouldn't. All teens/young people will be able to relate to this film in some way.

The Fundamentals Of Caring

The Fundamentals of Caring is a Netflix original film and is one of the best films I've seen in a long time! In this film a disabled teen called Trevor and his caregiver Ben embark on a road trip, that changes their perspectives on life. Selena Gomez also stars as Dot, a girl who catches the eye of Trevor.

Love Rosie

Love Rosie is a film about Rosie and Alex who are childhood best friends. They end up going their separate ways as they get older but time eventually brings them back together, with some surprises along the way. I love how warm this film is and the message it portrays that if something is meant to be it will be.


Everybody is familiar with Catfish the TV show and the film is just as good. I first watched this film when I was 15 and it was a real eye opener. It made me realise that you sometimes don't know who you're talking to online, and that not everyone is who they say they are. This film/documentary follows Nev trying to meet the girl he fell in love with, who of course has been lying to him. 

The Woman In Black

The Woman In Black is based on the book by Susan Hill. In the film Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) portrays a lawyer called Arthur, who is sent to the house of a deceased client to sort out her paperwork. The house he is sent to is haunted by a ghost who has come back to claim what is hers. This film does include some jump scares but is not as scary as other horror films. The ending is particularly moving and I almost cried at the final scene.

Gnomeo & Juliet 

Gnomeo & Juliet is a film about 2 gnomes from rival families who fall in love with each other. There are plenty of twists and turns in this film that the whole family can watch together. I love how it puts a modern day twist on Shakespeare's classic play Romeo and Juliet using something as simple as garden gnomes.

Bratz the movie

I was 10 when this film first came out and I still love watching it almost 10 years later. This film like the dolls/cartoons focuses on 4 best friends - Chloe, Sasha, Jade and Yasmin. It follows them on their journey through high school and shows how they each become involved with a different clique group. Throughout the film they overcome problems and their friendship is tested like never before.


This film is an absolute classic and one that everyone has to watch at some point in their life. It follows the life of teenager Cher who always gets her own way, and her friend Dion who sticks by her through everything. When new girl Tai arrives on a transfer programme Cher attempts to change her, and ends up learning a lot about life along the way. 

A Girl Like Her

This film is a real tear jerker and focuses on a subject that is all too common these day - bullying.  It follows teenager Jessica who has been getting bullied by fellow student/ ex best friend/most popular girl in school Avery. Jessica finally decides to tell someone so confides in her best friend Jimmy, who suggests she wears a hidden camera. Jessica then does something that shocks the whole community and leaves them questioning everything. This is one of the few films I've actually cried at, and would recommend everyone to watch it if they haven't already.
