You’ve hit the midway point of the workweek, which means chilling and soaking up some new movies on Netflix Canada might be the smartest way to enter the latter half of the week.

From a woman waking up in a cryogenic unit with no memory to a surprisingly good movie about a truck driver, a suspense flick starring Amanda Seyfried, and some solid foreign flicks, here is what should be on your Netflix radar tonight.

We’ve embedded trailers to help in your decision-making process because you can’t waste time on a Wednesday; you’ve got movies to watch.
