Of all the streaming platforms, Netflix
Which makes choosing a movie…well. Hard.
I hope I can help. I checked out all the new movies on Netflix so far in August and picked ten of my favorites. In this article I will review each of them.
fallen from heaven
When James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) latest mission goes terribly wrong, events take a dire turn: undercover agents around the world are exposed and MI6 is attacked, forcing M (Judi Dench) to move the agency. With MI6 now compromised inside and out, M turns to the only man he can trust: Bond. With the only help of a field agent (Naomie Harris), Bond steps into the shadows and tracks down Silva (Javier Bardem), a man from M’s past who wants to settle an old score.
spider man 1/2/3
All three of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies are on Netflix this month. I personally enjoy spider man 2 Most When a failed nuclear fusion experiment results in an explosion that kills his wife, Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) transforms into Dr. Octopus, a cyborg with deadly metal tentacles. Doc Ock blames Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) for the accident and seeks revenge. Meanwhile, Spidey’s alter ego, Peter Parker, faces fading powers and self-doubt. Complicating matters is his best friend’s (James Franco) hatred for Spider-Man and his true love’s (Kirsten Dunst) sudden commitment to another man.
A man wakes up missing his memories. Directed by a mysterious voice from a device in his ear, he sets out on a hostage rescue mission fraught with danger.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny ability to skip classes and get away with it. Intent on making one last getaway before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a day trip through the streets of Chicago. Hot on Ferris’s trail is High School Principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act.
Bridget Jones’s Diary/Baby
There are two Bridget Jones movies on Netflix. They’re all great, but the third one (Bridget Jones’s baby) could be my favorite. Breaking up with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) leaves Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) in her 40s and single again. Feeling that she has everything under control, Jones decides to focus on her career as a news producer. Suddenly, her love life comes back from the dead when she meets a handsome, handsome American named Jack (Patrick Dempsey). Things couldn’t be better, until Bridget finds out that she’s pregnant. Now the bewildered mom-to-be must find out if the proud dad is Mark or Jack.
The people of Detroit know 8 Mile as the edge of the city, a border, a boundary. It’s also a psychological dividing line that separates Jimmy Smith Jr. (Eminem) from where and who he wants to be. A provocative fictional examination of a critical week in Jimmy’s life.
Eyes wide Shut
After Dr. Bill Hartford’s (Tom Cruise) wife, Alice (Nicole Kidman), admits to having sexual fantasies about a man she met, Bill becomes obsessed with having a sexual encounter. He discovers an underground sex group and attends one of her meetings, and quickly discovers that she is in over her head.
Badru hopes her volatile husband will reform if he stops drinking. However, when her anger goes too far, she and her mother boldly, if clumsily, seek revenge.
Men in Black 1/2/3
men in black 3 has been very popular on Netflix this month, but you can’t beat the original. They are the best kept secret in the universe. Working for a highly funded but unofficial government agency, Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) and Jay (Will Smith) are the Men in Black, providers of immigration services and regulators of all things extraterrestrial on Earth. While investigating a series of unrecorded close encounters, MIB agents uncover the deadly plot of an intergalactic terrorist on a mission to assassinate two ambassadors from opposite galaxies currently residing in New York City.
When a terrorist threatens to bomb the Miss America pageant, the FBI races to find an agent to go undercover as a contestant. Unfortunately, Gracie is the only female FBI agent who can “look the part” despite her complete lack of refinement and femininity. She prides herself on being “just one of the guys” and is horrified by the idea of becoming a girly girl.
Space Jam (1996)
Swackhammer (Danny DeVito), the evil alien theme park owner, needs a new attraction on Moron Mountain. When his gang, the Nerdlucks, head to Earth to kidnap Bugs Bunny (Billy West) and the Looney Tunes, Bugs challenges them to a basketball game to determine his fate. The aliens agree, but steal the powers of NBA basketball players, including Larry Bird (Larry Bird) and Charles Barkley (Charles Barkley), so Bugs gets help from superstar Michael Jordan (Michael Jordan).
Commercial airline pilot Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) has a drug and alcohol problem, though so far he has managed to complete his flights safely. His luck runs out when a disastrous mechanical malfunction sends his plane crashing to the ground. Whip pulls off a miraculous crash landing resulting in the loss of only six lives. Shocked to the core, Whip vows to get sober, but when the accident investigation exposes his addiction, he finds himself in an even worse situation.
