The Great Gatsby (May 1st)
Nothing beats a good 1920s film does it old sport? New to Netflix in May is the 2013 adaptation of the novel The Great Gatsby. Featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire this is the ultimate Friday night film.
It’s 1929 in New York and former Bond-seller Nick Carraway has been locked away in a sanatorium for depression and alcoholism. Ordered to write an account of what put him there, Nick tells us about the life of Gatsby and is it a complicated one.
Everyone knows that Gatsby’s parties are legendary ones and this film is full of partying and drama which you and the lads or your partner will love. Basically, get ready for a few twists and a banging soundtrack provided by Jay Z, Jack White and Beyoncé.
People Just Do Nothing (May 5th)
Our favourite pirate radio station is back. Netflix is giving us an update on Kurupt FM through the fourth series of People Just Do Nothing. If you haven’t seen the show before you cans till catch up with the previous series on Netflix but if you’re a huge fan this means you can watch series 4 on repeat.
In the mockumentary, the characters give interviews to the camera and you can hear the off-screen interviewer. Kurupt FM broadcasts UK Garage from a flat in Brentford London and the show also gives us a glimpse into the personal like of characters MC Grindah, DJ Beats, DJ Steves, and their entrepreneurial manager, Chabuddy G.
An easy and entertaining watch, People Just do nothing is perfect for a Saturday afternoon when you need something funny to watch.
Fate of the Furious (May 14th)
The eighth instalment of the Fast and the Furious series is zooming onto Netflix and we’re ready. We’ve got our KWD hoodie on, popcorn sorted and we’ve tried to make our own version of a Tango ice blast. This film is high action and will have you full of adrenaline so sounds on point to us.
Vin Diesel, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson- it doesn’t get much better. The Fate of the Furious follows Dominic Toretto (Diesel), who has finally settled down with his wife Letty Ortiz (Rodriguez) until a cyber-terrorist coerces him into working for her and turns him against his team.
Nailed It (May 17th)
We’re not the biggest fans in the world of baking unless we get to eat the goods but Nailed It is returning to Netflix on the 17th and we can’t wait to laugh at amateur bakers failing at making a simple cake.
Think what it would be like if someone paid you to make a birthday cake and then make it ten times worse- this is how the cakes end up on this show. The perfect Sunday afternoon hangover show Nailed It is a much watch when you just need your life to seem that little bit better.
Part reality contest, part a hot mess competitors try to win $10,000 and the results are comedy gold.
When They See Us (May 31st)
You've got to wait a bit longer for this one but it's going to be one hundred per cent worth it. Based on a true crime case that gripped the whole world, this Netflix drama tells the story from a new perspective.
The four-part series documents the case of five teenagers who were wrongly convicted of a brutal crime which took place in Central Park in the spring of 1989.
The ‘Central Park Five’, McCray, Richardson, Salaam, Santana and Wise were freed in 2002 when DNA evidence proved they were not responsible for the crime. The series will cover the 25 years from the beginning in the spring of 1989 when the teens were first questioned about the incident and ending with their 2002 exoneration and 2014 settlement reached with the city of New York.
Gripping drama which is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
