June is about to grace us with its presence. Whether you are ready for summer or not, at least Netflix is getting a few fantastic films. Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to the delightful Disney animated film Wreck-it-Ralph hits Netflix on June 11. And on June 26 you can check out Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, one of 2018's best films. Dark and depressing TV will reign supreme in June on Netflix. Season 5 of Black Mirror lands on June 5. Plus the second seasons of The Confession Tapes and the German sci-fi thriller Dark will be available on June 21. The true crime and sci-fi lover in me could not be more excited. On the film front, you can double down on the June Gloom with the first two Christopher Nolan Batmans: Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. But if the summer festivities has you in the mood for something a little more campy, try a double marathon of Cabaret and Magic Mike.

Good tv shows on netflix
Netflix isn't messing around this May. Their lineup of original films and returning TV shows is quite exciting!There's rarely a shortage of original films appearing on Netflix, but May has a few that you'll want to keep a close eye on. The Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron as Bundy, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, drops May 3. And on the far other end of the spectrum is the Amy Poehler directed comedy Wine Country, which hits May 10. Wine Country stars SNL alums Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph and Rahcel Dratch. With a cast that delightful, I think we can all assume this one will be good for a few laughs. A number of original series are returning. Easy comes back for it's third season on May 10. And speaking of third seasons, the delightfully funny reality baking catastrophe show Nailed It! will also be back May 17. Also coming to Netflix are the second seasons of the young adult apocalyptic hit The Rain and Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It. On the film … [Read more...] about Every new movie and show on Netflix: May 2019
Well hello, April! Netflix is bringing you a handful of classic films this month. I recommend starting off with the political thriller All the President's Men, about the Watergate scandal. Then be sure to check out Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty as bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde. And depending on your threshold for disturbing films, you might want to check out Deliverance. If you Quentin Tarantino fans were excited by the new poster for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which comes out in July, don't worry. Netflix is getting the The Hateful Eight: Extended Version to tide you over. On the TV front, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is coming back for a second season on April 5. We probably won't get more Salem onscreen, but it does seem like we're getting a very handsome Satan. And if you haven't tapped into Netflix's foreign language television shows, you really ought to take a look. My TV recommendation is Samantha!, which returns for a second season April 19.Available … [Read more...] about Every new movie and show on Netflix: April 2019
Every second of every day social media rewards us for screaming at each other. That's what gets the retweets. That's where the YouTube money is. Noone's sharing your nuanced, political take on Facebook you centrist coward. In 2019 consensus is a dirty word and the world is pitting us against one another in an algorithm race towards the chaos dimension. Pick up your pitchfork and pick a side.It's time to get shouty. Time to have an extreme opinion about absolutely everything, "cancel" everyone who even mildly disagrees with you and launch them into the phantom zone.I joke obviously. But I am also exhausted. Exhausted by endless confrontation, by the pressure to be 100% right on every single topic. Drained by the threat of permanent exclusion from well-meaning peer groups should I accidentally post a bad tweet about the wrong topic somewhere down the line. Or possibly in my distant past.Which is all just a long-winded way of explaining precisely why I have fallen in love with a Japanese … [Read more...] about Terrace House on Netflix is an antidote to a world gone insane
Countersteer Your true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars. December is one of the most painful and yet most blessed times of the year. For those of us who are still slogging through the rigamarole of higher education, it means the double edged sword of finals followed by the sweet, sweet bliss of winter break. And folks, last night I turned in my last final essay. It is time to devote my undivided attention to cars and TV. Or, even better: both at the same time. I’ve never been a big TV watcher. I grew up in a household with exactly one television, which was reserved for family time only (that means no hogging the damn thing with your nonsense, kiddo). When I moved out, my TV was about one step up from a tube television and the colors were so funky that I never used it for anything but watching race cars, even though the messed up screen turned the Ferraris yellow. But that’s all changing. I’ve upgraded to one of those newfangled smart TVs. I … [Read more...] about What Automotive TV Shows Should I Binge Over Winter Break?
