With June just around the corner now, there’s a good chance that, depending on where you live, you’ll be looking to stay indoors to avoid the heat, humidity and, worst of all, summer insects. And if you’re looking to cool off from the comfort and safety of your living room couch, you’ll be glad to hear that Netflix is planning to add a handful of standout movies and TV shows to their catalog that are sure to keep you busy for some time to come.
We’ll paste a full list of all the content down below, but we thought we’d highlight a few of our favorites, just in case you were trying to decide what to prioritize when it comes to binge-watching.
Cape Fear – While it’s usually passed over in favor of Martin Scorsese’s more popular works like Goodfellas and The Departed, this early 90s psychological thriller is a must-watch in its own right, thanks to solid performances from Robert De Niro and Gregory Peck.
Silence of the Lambs – Speaking of 90s classics, anyone who hasn’t checked this one out should stop whatever they’re doing and watch it right now. It’s one of only three movies to win the Oscar for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay and is one of the finest horror films around. Even to this day.
V for Vendetta – With political tension at an all-time high, a slick action movie about a masked anarchist attempting to overthrow a white supremacist, totalitarian government might just be the film we need right now. It’s also superbly entertaining.
