There's so much to watch this weekend on Netflix, where do you even begin? Well, let me ask this - what are you in the mood for?

This week, I've collected a few movies that should match your mood. There are the new trending releases that everyone is talking about, award winning movies to get you thinking, light-hearted documentaries, comedy for your funny bone, and a couple of classics you haven't seen in a while.

What are you waiting for? Get the popcorn poppin', turn the volume up and the lights down and enjoy this week's batch of Netflix picks, starting with new trending releases.

The Get Down

Starring: Justice Smith, Shameik Moore

Rated: TV-MA

Synopsis: "In 1977 New York City, the talented and soulful youth of the South Bronx chase dreams and breakneck beats to transform music history."

Why you'll love it: Netflix's track record is very impressive this year with its original content. Expectations are high for "The Get Down" after the success of "Stranger Things."

St. Vincent

Starring: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts

Rated: PG-13

Synopsis: "With his parents preoccupied with their divorce, lonely 12-year-old Oliver strikes up a friendship with his war-veteran neighbor Vincent."

Why you'll love it: Bill Murray puts on a great performance with his sarcasm, but it's the debut performance of Jaeden Lieberher that steals the show.
