Sorry if you made plans to sleep a little earlier this month (and maybe spend more time in the sunny outdoors beyond your couch), because the Netflix offerings this month are too good to miss. Plan nostalgia trips to the '80s and the year 2000 courtesy of Sixteen Candles and Bring it On (ones to watch more than once, TBH) or order in with the Reese Witherspoon classic Pleasantville.

Keep scrolling to find all the new films you can add to your queue this month, and all the flicks to screen before they roll out.
