July is a quiet month for movies, but you still have some good watching options on Netflix.
It’s that time again where we take a look at the new content headed your way next month. This part of summer is always a quiet time for movies, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any good watching options. You just have to look a little harder. Lucky you, we’re here to do the work for you.
There are some titles hitting the service this month that are older, but very worthy of your time. Disney’s Bolt (2008) is a movie I feel is often overlooked but is a great watch for the whole family. The Company Men is a drama featuring Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Chris Cooper, and Tommy Lee Jones. A film about the shifting economy and its effect on workers, it’s a very satisfying watch.
Some other films deserving a spot in your queue are Gone Baby Gone, The Boondock Saints, and Blue Valentine.
For a full look at all of the selections coming next month see our July list.
