Netflix is always churning out amazing original content, but this month they’re really killing it. Here’s what you REALLY need to watch out for on Netflix this month!
It’s rare we pray for rain, but when there is so much good stuff to watch on TV, it’s hard to keep yourself away from the sunshine. Of course, June brings around a new series of our favorite, highly addictive and anticipated women’s prison comedy-drama OITNB, and Chef’s Table will always be a go-to when it comes to easy watching and food, but June brings around a whole load of goodies to feast your eyes on.
June sees the first viewing of two very different female-led drama series, the premiere of an eagerly awaited monster movie, and first screenings of a WWII tale and dark cop comedy. Below is my top list of things not to avoid this month, but here’s everything coming to Netflix soon!
Orange is the New Black
Netflix’s biggest and most popular series is back with a vengeance and a trailer which will rally the masses to unite. The new, and fifth season is being shown over just three days and is released on June 9th. It’s set to further explore the fallout from the tragic death of Litchfield’s most popular inmate. Remember that cliffhanger season four left us on? With Daya about to pull the trigger, we’ll finally know what happened!
I will say, I just started the newest season last night and I’m already obsessed (again). My only complaint with Netflix giving us all of the episodes right away is that I binge them too quickly and then have to wait too long before the next season!
Hello, My Name is Doris
When Hello, My Name is Doris first aired at SXSW in 2015, it was rumored that Sally Field’s performance was worthy of an Oscar. Unfortunately, the buzz died down by the time it made it into the cinema’s, but Field’s performance is excellent nonetheless. This tale of a sixty-something who becomes infatuated with a co-worker who is half her age is both heartwarming, hilarious, and definitely worthy of an award.
Catfight is a crazed-woman psychological thriller, which is a genre which seems to be making a comeback in 2017. This movie stars Anne Heche and Sandra Oh as two former college friends who become obsessively involved in a life-long conflict which gets nastier and bloodier by the minute. This film isn’t one for people who are offended easily or the faint-hearted, but it’s refreshing to watch something which isn’t afraid to go all out.
War on Everyone
Alexander Skarsgard puts on a magnetic performance as ever in his first ever Hollywood venture from Irish director John Michael McDonagh – who also directed The Guard and Cavalry. Alex and Michael Pena star as two corrupt police officers who bite off a bit more than they can chew in this fast paced and funny film. Hot on the heels of The Nice Guys, it would appear that comedy cop dramas are experiencing some sort of revival.
Just as one historical military film starring Jamie Dornan graces our screens, another one comes along. Just a few months after The Siege of Jadotville made it’s way onto Netflix, this story of the assassination of a high-ranking Nazi official has arrived. Anthropoid sees Dornan and Cillian Murphy play two exiled Czech agents tasked with Operation Anthropoid, in a gripping and harrowing tale of one of World War Two’s lesser known missions to kill Reinhard Heydrich.
