Best New Arrivals

Here's a list of the best new arrivals on Netflix. You're welcome.

Goon

When he's seen dispatching a rude opposing hockey player in the stands, Doug Glatt is hired by a rival team ... for his fighting skills.

As the brutality ramps up, and the story gains real consequence, for some reason, we actually laugh harder. Goon is a comedy, often a very funny one, but you might be hesitant to call it that once you've actually seen it.

The Transfiguration

Obsessed with vampires and on a dangerous path, a troubled but self-aware 14-year-old New Yorker with a taste for blood sees a chance for redemption.

 

Bold and brutal in shocking spurts, the indie horror drama from writer-director O'Shea is a startling debut that leaves a fresh mark on the genre while celebrating its forbears.

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion

To avenge his father's death, a young man leads an army into battle against a cruel tyrant in this Hindi conclusion to the historic saga.

The action choreography is exciting, the operatic plot is compelling, and there's a genuine sense of optimism that undercuts the gouts of blood and thunderous sound effects.
