Netflix June 2019

June is right around the corner. How is Netflix tempting the average mortal to resist the urge to step out and bask in late spring/early summer weather? Well, no plan would ever be full proof, but let’s evaluate the effort.

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston team up once again in Murder Mystery, an action/comedy/mystery hybrid with blockbuster appeal. Speaking of duos, here’s one that’s as unlikely as it is iconic: Martin Scorsese and Bob Dylan. Documentary Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese should be interesting. Season 5 of Black Mirror arrives on the 5th, and Season 3 of Documentary Now! (Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers’ IFC mockumentary extravaganza) will be made available for streaming.

Stand-up comedians Jo Koy and Mike Epps have new specials. The official trailer for I Am Mother, a sci-fi thriller starting Hilary Swank and Rose Byrne, exude exciting entertainment. There is also plenty of family entertainment: Malibu Rescue has been made into an eight-episode series, and last year’s 3D animation box-office winners The Grinch and Ralph Breaks the Internet will be made available for streaming also.

These are just a few suggestions, but there are a lot of more options to choose from, and they are wide-ranging and eclectic. Here are some quick previews:

NEW ARRIVALS:

Netflix will release ‘Murder Mystery’ on June 14

As 2011’s Just Go with It attested, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s onscreen chemistry is a proven commodity. This go around, Aniston plays a murder mystery novel enthusiast, the wife of a NYC cop played by Sandler, who finally makes good on an old promise to take her on a trip to Europe for vacation.

On the flight, they randomly meet a man who invites them to a family gathering on an elderly billionaire’s yacht. When the billionaire is murdered, they become the main suspects. The trailer promises high-octane action, Sandler and Aniston promise the comedy, and the whodunit promises the mystery. It should be fun.

‘Black Mirror: Season 5’ arrives June 5

In addition to being great entertainment, this modern-day Twilight Zone of sorts has provided eerie insight and commentary about how contemporary technology affects human behavior and social mores. Some episodes have been spine-chillingly prophetic. As technological innovations like Artificial Intelligence loom in an increasingly less distant future, and as we struggle to contend with the rapid-fire nature of never-before-asked questions, Netflix original series Black Mirror is sure to not run out of subject matter anytime soon.

‘Malibu Rescue: The Series’ arrives June 3

Netflix Kids & Family is expanding its original catalogue. After last month’s release of Malibu Rescue, Netflix is now, less than a month later, turning that movie into an eight-episode series. The movie was a live-action comedy that told a classic underdog story of a group of aspiring junior lifeguards competing for rank and turf in Malibu beach lifeguard hierarchy. The series follows the group’s summer adventures as newly anointed junior lifeguards. It’s classic uplifting family entertainment.

‘I Am Mother’ arrives June 7

The plot: humans on earth have been extinct, and a maternal robot (Rose Byrne) is raising a teenager (Clara Rugaard), with the ultimate goal of repopulating the earth. But their bond is put into question when, upon meeting another human (Hilary Swank), the teenager finds cause to suspect the veracity of the version of events that she’s been fed, and the authenticity of the robot’s intentions.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ arrives June 26

Six months after its theatrical release, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse arrives to Netflix. It was the first animated feature film in the Spider-Man franchise, and it won the Oscar for Best Animated Picture. If you didn’t go see it in the theaters, here is your chance to find out what the buzz was all about.

LAST CHANCE VIEWINGS!

‘The Pianist’ leaves Netflix June 15

This movie is a 2002 biographical film based on the autobiographical book The Pianist by Jewish composer and Holocaust survivor Wladyslaw Szpilman. It was an Oscar nominee for Best Picture, and it won the Best Picture award at the Cannes International Film Festival. Adrian Brody plays Szpilman, and this role got him the Oscar for Best Actor.

The Pianist is a gut-punching and epic account of Szpilman’s life as a Jew on the run in Nazi-occupied Poland. During the occupation, Szpilman manages to elude deportation and remain in the Warsaw Ghetto. But he probably wouldn’t have survived without the help of a German officer who helped him hide. The film is a remarkable period piece that displays humanity at its best and at its worst. 

‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’ and ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 2’ leave June 1

Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2 are Quentin Tarantino’s 4th and 5th films. They are the two stylish installments of the one big martial arts extravaganza that cemented Tarantino’s status as an undeniable one-of-a-kind director. Revenge thrillers soaked in blood and gore, these two movies showcase Tarantino’s formidable technique as a director, as they seamlessly evoke and blend obscure and disparate genres at will (from Blaxploitation to Spaghetti Western).

Uma Thurman plays Beatrix Kiddo (aka The Bride), a pregnant woman left for dead at her wedding rehearsal by a team of assassins she used to be a part of. Four years later, she wakes up from a coma, is horrified to learn she lost her baby, and sets off on a revenge tour that will take her around the globe on a killing spree. Both volumes are roughly two hours long each, so hurry up and binge: June 1st is almost here.
