Some people spend their days arguing over the merits of Netflix, but the rest of us are too busy enjoying new movies, engaging series, and fun specials. It’s just one more way to re-watch the movies we already love and find new ones to cherish, and this month sees some of both hitting the service.

The complete list of movies and shows hitting Netflix this month — June 2019 — is below, but first I’m going to highlight a few that stand apart from the bunch.

Netflix Pick of the Month

I’ll admit to being a bit hesitant during the theatrical run for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) as unanimous praise for a film makes me suspicious, but when I finally watched it on Blu-ray I was thrilled to discover the rumors were true. The film is amazing and spectacular in the best possible ways, a constant stream of visual style and wonder in service of a story that both thrills and affects the heart. It swings onto Netflix starting June 26th, and I really can’t recommend it enough.

An Original Gamble

Look, last month I picked a new Netflix Original as my May highlight, and, well, it turned out to be garbage. What I’m saying is it’s a crap shoot, and we’re all just dice tumbling violently through the air. Anyway. Murder Mystery is a new Netflix Original, and it arrives on June 14th. It’s an Adam Sandler joint so obviously the consensus is that it’s gonna stink, but the trailer looks like fun! Jennifer Aniston co-stars, and they play a couple who wind up in the middle of a murder plot and framed for the crime. Whatever. I’m hoping for the best.

Wholly Unrelated But Solid Movies


Sometimes you’re just looking for something to watch without worrying about genres, casting, or other specifics. Netflix has you covered with the addition of a few good movies you may or may not have already seen. 50/50 (2011) is a cancer comedy that legit pulls off the laughs and tears. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the afflicted, Seth Rogen plays his best friend, and it’s a movie that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. That’s a good thing! Network (1976) won’t have you crying (unless it’s for the state of humanity), but you just might laugh along at its darkly honest take on the media and the American appetite for terrible things. And finally, Joe Dante’s Small Soldiers (1998) is a fun little adventure/comedy about action figure toys that come to life and cause some trouble. It’s fun for kids and adults alike!

The Oldest Film Added to Netflix

Cat On Hot Tin

Last month’s oldest new addition was Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), and Netflix is continuing that theme with this month’s arrival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958). By theme I of course mean “Elizabeth Taylor in a bad marriage made worse by alcohol,” but this time at least she’s hitched to a younger man played by Paul Newman. It’s a wonderfully dramatic and sprawling tale about how rich people are every bit as troubled as the rest of us, and both leads do fantastic work pulling viewers into their lives and struggles.
