From slap-stick to one-liners, it has it all. Don’t miss out, make sure you watch The Naked Gun this month on Netflix.

The King (85 percent)


It’s hard to comprehend what is happening at Netflix. They’re making movies that belong on the big screen, yet are handing them out within its subscription. The King belongs in a theatre.

I Lost My Body (86 percent)

I Lost My Body tells the story of a severed hand making its way back to its body. It’s as surreal as it is fascinating, blending the journey back with memories of the life it once had. This movie is unique and unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard before. Only skip if you don’t like animation.

The Irishman (86 percent)


What do Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, digital de-aging, the mob, and the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa have in common? Elements to deliver a Best Picture Oscar nomination for The Irishman. It’s going to happen, and it should. This is easily one of Netflix’s most ambitious movies ever. The only question remaining: how many Academy Awards will it win?

Inception (91 percent)

Some movies make you sit back in awe and Inception is one of those. From the brilliant writer-director Christopher Nolan to stand out performances from Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page, the movie is perfect. The only negative is that the ending leaves you guessing for days and weeks on end. If you’ve not seen Inception, put it on your watchlist now.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (92 percent)

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of the most iconic movies of the 80s. Matthew Broderick seemed destined to be a superstar (what happened there?) and writer-director John Hughes was once again making movie magic. The man is a legend and every August 6th the nation should take a day off to celebrate one of the most talented movie-makers ever.

Malcolm X (91 percent)


Warning: fanboy mode kicking in. Denzel Washington is the man, and his movies are never disappointing. This biopic by Spike Lee is a dramatization of Malcolm X’s autobiography. It charts his story from Nationalist leader to a member of the Nation of Islam. If you don’t mind some of the facts being stretched by Lee, Malcolm X is a great movie to dig into.

City of God (97 percent)

Internationally known as Cidade De Deus, City of God is a Brazilian masterpiece that charts the story of two kids on their journey from slums to relevancy. One desperate to escape the insanity and take photographs, the other a madman on his way to becoming a gang kingpin. It’s an epic story that looks beautiful, the only downside is that you’ll need to read its subtitles to enjoy it.

Tremors (76 percent)

This is one of the most-watched movies in this house. For anyone who doesn’t know, Tremors is about big underground monsters and the isolated town of Perfection. What makes the movie so special is the chemistry between leads Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, and the other from the town. Tremors lands somewhere between a great B-movie horror and a comedy. It’s a perfect blend that makes a movie easy to watch over and over.

The Two Popes (90 percent)

The writer-director of City of God, Fernando Meirelles also directed The Two Popes. The easiest thing to say is that this movie shouldn’t be this intriguing, yet Anthony Hopkins, in the hands of this director, makes this one of the best Netflix movies ever made. Far better than the trainwreck 6 Underground.
