Here’s What’s Coming To Netflix In May That Doesn’t Suck

It’s hard to believe that May is almost here, didn’t we just start April? The months are flying by and before we know it, summer will be in our midst. While the majority of your time will most likely be spent poolside with an ice cold beverage in arms reach, we all need an escape from the relentless summer heat.

Fortunately, Netflix has an abundance of new titles debuting in their streaming library next month including several original series and films. So, after a long day outside find yourself a cool quiet place and binge to your heart’s content on these releases.

1. Blood on the Mountain (2016)

First up on the May setlist, is a powerful documentary about the environmental and economic injustices faced by American workers rooted in West Virginia. The film gives viewers an in-depth look into the lives of hard-working individuals with limited life choices and the obstacles they overcome despite their situation and suffocating corporate control.

2. Chocolat (2000)

Much like the majority of Johnny Depp’s films, Chocolat is a cinematic masterpiece that should be watched from beginning to end without interruption. It follows the story of a woman and her daughter who decide to open a chocolate shop in a remote French village. Their presence disrupts the rigid societal structure of the small-town until its residents fall in love with the delectable chocolate treats.

3. Forrest Gump (1994)

I’m going to safely assume that the majority of you reading this have seen Forrest Gump at least a handful of times in your life, but if by some existential crisis you have managed to avoid this film, please watch it now. The many adventures Forrest has throughout his life will make you smile, laugh, and probably ugly cry like nobody’s watching. It’s okay we all need that emotional release now and then.

4. Happy Feet (2006)

If you find yourself in need of an instant mood booster, the animated feature Happy Feet is the perfect choice. The film follows an adorable penguin named Mumble (voiced by Elijah Wood) who discovers he’s very different from the other penguins in his colony that find their soulmates through song. Mumble can’t sing, but he can dance up a storm and he learns to be proud of his uniqueness.

5. Malibu’s Most Wanted (2003)

Another great mood-booster (yet slightly less child-friendly), is the hilarious Malibu’s Most Wanted.  A prominent senator arranges for his privileged white son to be kidnapped by a  pair of black actors portraying dangerous murderers in order to scare him out of becoming a rapper and things don’t exactly go as planned. Go figure.

The always entertaining Norm Macdonald is returning to screens in an all-new Netflix original special. The comedian brings his trademark dry humor to a stand-up set filmed live at Boston’s Wilbur Theater. So, grab a beer or your substance of choice and get a laugh in.

Aziz Ansari’s award-winning comedy returns to Netflix next month for a second season and is anticipated to be even more addicting than the first.

8. Tracy Morgan: Staying Alive — Netflix Original

Maybe it’s because I’ve recently adopted an unhealthy 30 Rock addiction, but I cannot wait for this Tracy Morgan stand-up special debuting on Netflix next month. According to Deadline, “the special sees Morgan exploring his fresh take on life, career and mortality in the wake of surviving a devastating, near-fatal traffic collision in 2014.”

9. The Break-Up (2006)

Imho, this film is extremely underrated. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston make for a hilariously entertaining duo in a movie about the ups and downs every relationship experiences. After the pair go through a nasty breakup, they must continue to live together as neither one wants to give up their luxurious condo and things get ridiculous.

10. The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

This is one of the films on our list that I cannot wait to stream with a nice bottle of wine. The drool-worthy Ryan Gosling stars as a motorcyclist who turns to a life of crime in order to provide for his family. Gosling’s character finds himself in collision with a rookie detective (Bradley Cooper) who is looking to move up the ranks of a highly corrupt police department. Their lives become riddled with hardship and deceit and the only refuge is a place beyond the pines.

If you have yet to see Inglourious Basterds, shame on you! Okay, not really, but please take the time to watch it this summer when it joins Netflix’s endless streaming library. When the Nazi’s have occupied France during WWII, a a group of Jewish U.S. soldiers plan to assassinate their tyrannical leaders. However, their plot coincides with a theatre owner’s similar vengeful intentions.

13. Southpaw (2015)

I’m inclined to support any film that features Jake Gyllenhaal shirtless and Southpaw is no exception. In addition to a superb view, this film tells the story of boxer Billy Hope who’s desperately trying to turn his life around after the passing of his wife and losing his only daughter to child services. It’s an emotional rollercoaster to say the very least.

14. House of Cards: Season 5 — Netflix Original

Our favorite conniving congressman, Kevin Spacey, returns to Netflix for a 5th season of House of Cards. If the teaser trailer is any indication, this season is going to keep us on the edge of our seats and wanting more. Why can’t they just release all the seasons at once? Why do you do this Netflix, WHY?
