What’s better than going outside in the summer? STAYING IN AND WATCHING TV! Well, you should probably enjoy the weather too. But when you are done with a long day of play and ready to veg out on the couch, we have several new films and shows for you to check out, as well as some classics that will be returning to your favorite streaming platforms.
1. Loki (Disney+)
By far the most anticipated release for June, Loki looks like it’s going to be a wild ride into some of the most absurd parts of the Marvel universe. Just think of the impact this show could have on the MCU, from the potential introductions of Kang and Mephisto to exploring some of our favorite films from the past — Loki looks like a blast, and I’m so excited to see Owen Wilson join the MCU.
2. The Mitchells vs. the Machines (Netflix)
Sony Pictures Animation
This movie came out last month, so forgive my lateness, but I had to share because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I haven’t laughed so hard at an animated movie since watching Shrek as a kid. The family-friendly apocalypse story is really compelling, and the twists are genuinely unexpected at times.
3. Sweet Tooth (Netflix)
Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., is bringing this alternative DC comic to life. Sweet Tooth is about a young boy named Gus who has an unusual background: he’s half deer. But in this world, that’s actually not that unusual, and he must now set out on a journey to find answers about who he is and a home where he can live safely.
4. The Mysterious Benedict Society (Disney+)
This mystery adventure based on the popular book series will star comedic heavyweights Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) and Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers, The Last Man on Earth) in really different roles alongside a team of super-smart orphans. How could this not be fun?
5. Fatherhood (Netflix)
Kevin Hart and family dramas are not two things I often think of together, which is why I’m intrigued by Fatherhood. In it, Hart plays a recently widowed single father trying to raise his young daughter. It promises to be an endearing and heartwarming movie for the whole family to enjoy together.
6. Get Smart (Hulu)
Village Roadshow Pictures
Based on the Mel Brooks series of the same name, Get Smart is a worthy adaptation starring Steve Carrell and Anne Hathaway (as well as an early acting credit for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). This movie features all the slapstick antics and goofy comedy you’d expect, and it doesn’t get old even after ten watches. Trust us.
7. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (Hulu)
20th Century Studios
This cinematic classic is back on Hulu, and it is worth sharing the dynamic duo of Paul Newman and Robert Redford with your kids. Butch Cassidy is considered one of the most influential American films and one of the earliest examples of Western revisionism. (Sorry for the film school jargon.)
8. The Muppets Take Manhattan (Amazon Prime)
The Jim Henson Company
Another classic that’s great for the whole family, The Muppets Take Manhattan hasn’t necessarily been added to the National Film Registry or featured in any AFI lists yet. Still, it does have a lot of Rizzo the Rat, and that’s good enough for us. Seriously though, this is one of the best Muppets movies ever made.
9. Mira, Royal Detective (Disney+)
Wild Canary Animation
This new Disney Junior series is lauded for its powerful representation of South Asian culture and its strong female protagonist. The visuals are pretty stunning for a kids’ animated series, and the voice acting team features powerhouses including Kal Penn and Freida Pinto.
10. Guardians of the Galaxy (Disney+)
I just rewatched this the other day and felt the need to reiterate that it might just be my favorite movie in the MCU. Everything about this movie is flawless and enjoyable, from the stellar soundtrack to the creative worldbuilding and perfect chemistry between the cast. We are still several years away from Volume 3, so now is the time to get your fix.
