2. Insidious: The Last Key


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is now on Netflix. Johnny Depp returns as the slurring, eyeliner-encrusted Capt. Jack Sparrow. This time, as he seeks Poseidon’s trident, he is joined by a bright young woman named Carina (Kaya Scodelario from the Maze Runner films).

No. 5: The fifth film in the series, Dead Men also features Geoffrey Rush and Javier Bardem (and brief glimpses of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley). A Pirates 6 has already been announced.

Buffoonery and a Beatle: The series has been losing steam since the original was released in 2003. But Dead Men was one of the more entertaining of the follow-ups, with Depp still milking the bungling Sparrow for laughs. (Also look for a prison cell cameo from Paul McCartney.)

Binge-worthy: Also now streaming on Netflix: Lethal Weapon (1-4), The Godfather (1-3) and a collection of fives: Five Batmans, five Bring It Ons and Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.
