Latest New Movie Releases from Netflix

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 at 9:53 am

The latest new movie releases from Netflix are here, and I’ve sifted through the 30 possible options to find the 10 that I think will most entertain our readers. As usual, it’s a diverse group featuring everything from rom-com ensemble casts to Samuel L. Jackson torturing someone for the duration of a film.

Keep in mind that you have to be a Netflix subscriber to take advantage of their great deals, but joining up is a snap. Just a few clicks here and there, and you’ll be ready to fill up your queue with all the latest new movie releases from Netflix. There are numerous pricing plans available, with something suited to everyone’s budget. So what are you waiting for?

Youth in Revolt (2010) – Michael Cera plays Nick Twisp, a hopeless dweeb smitten with the sexy Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday). In order to win her affections, he creates a suave alter-ego by the name of Francois Dillinger. But what happens when Francois’ bad boy ways get Nick in trouble with the law? Also starring Steve Buscemi, Jean Smart, Ray Liotta, and Zach Galifianakis.

Happy Tears (2010) – Demi Moore and Parker Posey play bickering sisters who come together to care for their aging father (Rip Torn) in this indie comedy-drama. Ellen Barkin co-stars.

Invictus (2009) – Morgan Freeman stars as newly-elected President of South Africa (and former political prisoner), Nelson Mandela, a leader faced with the task of bringing the country together following the fall of apartheid. To do this, he encourages the people to rally around the Springboks, the nation’s predominantly white rugby team led by Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon). An inspirational tale directed by Clint Eastwood, Invictus would earn both Freeman and Damon Oscar nominations. And, yes, the film has been available to purchase for a number of weeks, but it hasn’t been available through Netflix until now.

Mystery Train (1989) – Directed by indie legend Jim Jarmusch, Mystery Train tells three separate stories featuring foreign citizens (Japanese, British, and Italian) staying at a rundown hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. Inspired by a combination of Japanese ghost movies, the works of Chaucer, and episodic films from Italy. If you enjoyed previous Jarmusch films such as Stranger Than Paradise and Ghost Dog, you’ll definitely want to add this one to your list.

Mary and Max (2009) – Eric Bana, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Toni Collette provide the main voices in this claymation feature about a 22-year pen pal friendship between a chubby Australian kid and a morbidly obese Jew with Asperger syndrome. While there are plenty of moments of humor, the film also explores darker subjects such as depression and suicide.

Burma VJ (2009) – Filmed with hand-held cameras and smuggled out of the country, this Anders Ostergaard documentary takes a look at the Burmese uprisings in 2007. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2010 Academy Awards.

Valentine’s Day (2010) – Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman) directs this romantic comedy centered around a floral shop and featuring one of the most impressive ensemble casts ever assembled. Just check out this list of stars: Ashton Kutcher, Julia Roberts, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Patrick Dempsey, Jennifer Garner, Jamie Foxx, Kathy Bates, George Lopez, Hector Elizondo, Topher Grace, Shirley MacLaine, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift, and many more.

Unthinkable (2009) – No doubt inspired by some of Jack Bauer’s finest moments on 24, this film stars Samuel L. Jackson as ‘H,’ a black ops interrogator trying to determine the location of three nuclear bombs planted in the United States. The man responsible is Yusuf (Michael Sheen), an American Muslim who tries to resist the increasingly harsh tactics of ‘H,’ but is eventually faced with the sight of his own family members being threatened. Carrie-Anne Moss co-stars as the head of an FBI counter-terrorism who objects to the torture of the prisoner.

Collapse (2009) – A compelling documentary about how one man’s obsession has led to the collapse of his personal life. The man in question is Michael Ruppert, a former LAPD officer turned controversial author who believes that modern civilization is falling apart. Set in an abandoned L.A. meat locker, director Chris Smith allowed  Ruppert to espouse his views on a wide variety of subjects for 14 straight hours and then edited it down to this 82-minute film.

Circle of Pain – Not all of the latest new movie releases from Netflix are intended for everyone, and Circle of Pain is a perfect example. It caters exclusively to MMA fans, with appearances from real-life fighters such as Kimbo Slice, Frank Mir, Heath Herring, and Roger Huerta. Dean Cain also co-stars in this tale of a former MMA champ on the comeback trail.

If you do join Netflix via our link, we receive a small commission that goes right back into Only Good Movies. So why not do both of us a favor and become a Netflix subscriber? We’ll be able to pay the bills for this month, and you’ll get the finest online movie rental service in the history of mankind. I don’t know about you, but that’s what I call a win-win situation.
