We all know what Netflix is, but we never know what to watch. Without a great way to keep track of all the new titles available to watch instantly it’s pretty easy to overlook something awesome. But have no fear - Panels On Pages is here to keep you up to date on the coolest New Flix on Netflix.
Welcome back PoP!ulation – it’s the first of the month, and that means it’s time to check in on all the newest Instant Netflix offering since the last time we spoke. Overall, July is a bit disappointing, but there are few diamonds in the rough below!
Battle Royale - Remember that movie everyone said was better than The Hunger Games when The Hunger Games came out? Now you can actually watch it!
Battle Royale 2 - And the sequel!
Superman: The Movie - You will believe a man can spin the world backwards and make dirt un-fall into a hole in the ground. Oh, spoilers, sorry.
Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Greek Myths - Look for the one episode about how all Greek people love anal.
Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie - In case you’re one of the people who find these guys funny. Y’know, drug addicts.
Red Dawn - Who better to fend off the Russian Army than a pack of High Schoolers?
Twelve Monkeys - “What am I supposed to do with eleven monkeys? GET ME A TWELVE MONKEY!” - Bruce Willis, Twelve Monkeys.
The Fifth Element - You’ve seen the cosplay, now see the movie.
Donnie Brasco - Captain Jack Sparrow goes undercover to infiltrate the mob and steal their hidden treasure.
Home Alone 3 - Even as a child I knew I didn’t want to see this.
Raising Arizona - Perhaps somewhere in here will be clues as to why Arizona hates immigrants so much.
Boyz N the Hood - Remember when Cuba Gooding Jr COULDN’T talk to dogs?
The Majestic - Remember when Jim Carrey decided he was a serious actor?
Syriana - What am I supposed to say about Syriana that’s funny?
Once Upon a Time in the West - If this doesn’t end with “And they lived happily ever after” I’ll be pissed.
Basic - The reviews compare this movie to Pulp Fiction because it stars John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. I’ve seen Pulp Fiction, sir, and you are no Pulp Fiction.
City by the Sea - Before James Franco was making inexplicable appearances on soap operas, he was in this movie.
Taps - Sean Penn and Tom Cruise take over their military academy. First order of business? No more stuff on high shelves!
F/X - Never mess with a special effects expert.
F/X 2 - What did I JUST SAY?
Live Nude Comedy - Featuring Shannon Elizabeth and Whitney, star of Whitney. *Shudder*
Eight Men Out - Leading the pack for some decent Baseball related movies this month is the story of the disgraced Chicago Black Sox. Why they gotta be the “Black” Sox? Why can’t they just be the “Sox”?
A League of Their Own - There’s no crying in Tom Hanks’ movies!
The Bad News Bears - The original, before Billy Bob Thorton accidentally filmed a remake that summer that he thought he was coaching Little League.
The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training - Bad News Bears, Part Deux
The Bad News Bears Go to Japan! - Still no sign of the fourth movie, The Bad News Bears Lose Their Innocence in Thailand.
Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist - I’m sure this is completely original and just as good as the original Exorcist.
The Exorcist 2: The Heretic - Okay, I’m sure THIS is completely original and just as good as the original Exorcist.
Cheerleader Massacre - Oh man, I hope whoever is massacring them doesn’t follow them back to their Sorority House!
Sorority House Massacre - Oh no, they totally followed them back to their Sorority House!
I Spit on Your Grave - This sounds utterly disturbing, so I figured it would be right up most of your alleys.
KISS: Rock the Nation Live - People like KISS, right?
Return to Lonesome Dove - Spoiler alert: apparently they leave Lonesome Dove at the end of the first one.
Voltron Force - For you young people, this is like old school Power Rangers.
Voltron: The Third Dimension - And this is like old school Power Rangers in 3-D.
The Gumby Show - I can’t imagine this holds up well. I just can’t. I actually can’t imagine that it was good for it’s time, either. But now we can know for sure.
Hawthorne - The Fresh Princess of Bel-Air plays a nurse who does all sorts of nurse stuff with the guy from Alias. Man, Alias was a good show. They should put Alias on streaming.
There’s also new episodes of these TV shows:
And then there’s this junk:
