10 New Films to Stream on Netflix This July
(Via The Master)
Each week Yahoo Tech’s Alyssa Bereznak will help you pick the best movies and shows to stream online.
As July creeps up on us, Netflix is dumping a big batch of new movies into its library. Some gems include wonderful early ’90s tearjerkers like My Girl, cheesy late-’80s comedies like Honey I Shrunk the Kids, and steamy ’90s thrillers like Basic Instinct.
Yes, Netflix is in no short supply of flicks from 20 years ago. But that’s not to say there aren’t a few more recent titles in the group, most notably Christian Bale’s Out of the Furnace and the Scientology-inspired The Master. Or if you want to get way classic, try Audrey Hepburn’s iconic film Funny Face.
No matter your chronological preference, it’s time to crank up your air conditioner and queue up these titles for all those hot July nights when you just … can’t.
Available now: Broadway actress Elaine Stritch is having a bit of a second coming as she approaches her 90th birthday. But that doesn’t mean that she’s enjoying herself. Earlier this year, she casually dropped the F-bomb on national television while dressed in fur. And last year she told Vanity Fair, “I’m about as unhappy as anybody can be.”
This 2013 documentary follows the storied performer as she continues to be the fabulous and frank New York figure that she was born to be. It also features interviews from admirers Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Nathan Lane, James Gandolfini, and more.
Available June 30: Before Macaulay Culkin was playing in a band called Pizza Underground and wearing meta T-shirts, he was falling in love for the first time in My Girl. The tender 1991 film follows the adolescent romance between Vada (Anna Chlumsky) and Thomas (Culkin). Vada is a shy outcast with a mortician father, whose only real companion is Thomas. The two grow up together and eventually spark a romance. Then something really, really horrible happens and everyone’s heart is broken. All I’ll say is I had nightmares about bees for days after watching this.
