Thank You For Your Service – Picture: Universal Pictures

Best New Movies and Series for July 1st, 2023

Thank You for Your Service (2017)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Drama, War
Director: Jason Hall
Cast: Miles Teller, Beulah Koale, Joe Cole
Writer: David Finkel, Jason Hall
Runtime: 109 min / 1h 49m

One of two war-themed highlights we’re going to spotlight here.

Miles Teller, who rocketed to fame last year thanks to his role in Top Gun: Maverick, has previously played a military man in this 2017 Universal Pictures movie that scores highly with critics and audiences alike.

The movie is about a group of returning soldiers struggling to readjust to the mundane of ordinary life.

They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Documentary, History, War
Director: Peter Jackson
Cast: Thomas Adlam, William Argent, John Ashby
Writer: Esat Ozcan
Runtime: 99 min / 1h 39m

In recent years, Peter Jackson has been attached to several documentaries, including Get Back, following The Beatles, which debuted on Disney+ last year. However, this 2018 documentary on World War I is the famed director’s best and perhaps one of the finest documentaries in existence.

Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, critics and audiences alike have been awed by the restoration of footage from over 100 years ago paying homage to those that sacrificed so much.

Titanic (1997)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: James Cameron
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane
Runtime: 194 min / 3h 14m

Finally, for our highlights, we have to touch on the fact that Titanic, the 11-time Oscar-winning movie on the sinking of the infamous cruise ship, has recently been featured in the news following the implosion of the tourist submarine.

Is the addition of the movie today rather opportunistic? Sure, but it’s worth noting that it’s almost certainly more coincidence, with movies often rotating around services in waves depending on their window licensing agreement.
