As the COVID-19 crisis continues and many of us continue to shelter-in-place, Netflix is delivering a whole bunch of bingeable content. Classic teen movies collide with one of our favorite TV shows of all time. Amazing anime are going to be showing up next to the next Spike Lee movie. And there’s even a Eurovision song contest comedy starring Will Ferrell. Let’s go over all of it.
We all need something light and fluffy and Amy Heckerling’s splendid teen movie is all that and more. This lovely ’90s reimagining of Jane Austen’s Emma is the perfect summer watch. Alicia Silverstone leads a stellar cast as a young woman who thinks she can matchmake her way to an A grade.

Following a young girl who accidentally unleashes a set of magical cards that cause havoc, this delightful show is adapted from one of the loveliest manga of all time. If you need an easy and charming watch add this to your list now.
Hannibal is the bloody blessing we all need . Netflix is making all three seasons available. Though the show has been available on Amazon since it wrapped, hopefully this will garner more attention. If you want to watch the stunningly dark take on the killer made famous by Silence of the Lambs with the creator of the show then join us for a live watchalong with Bryan Fuller on June 6th.
Spike Lee’s highly anticipated Vietnam war film hits Netflix in June, and we can’t wait. It centers on a squad of vets who head back to the war-torn country to find their leader and the gold that he hid during the conflict. Da 5 Bloods boasts a cast including Chadwick Boseman, Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., and Jonathan Majors, Mélanie Thierry, and Jean Reno. It marks the first time the director has made a feature for Netflix.
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (June 26th)
If you’re from Europe and/or love campy stuff, you’re probably already aware of the Eurovision song contest. It’s amazing that no one has yet made a movie about this amazing spectacle. Until now. Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams teamed up for this comedy musical lovingly spearing the international music showcase.
