Congratulations! You’ve made it to the month of May in the year of our dark Lord, 2022. The sun is out, your allergies are face fucking you and take off your shirt season is just around the corner. So grab your favorite suffocated cumquat and ice water spiked with thermogenic cocaine to help burn off that last 47 pounds you promised yourself you’d lose by now and watch some Netflix! You’ve earned it! You look beautiful. I’d totally fuck you.

Did I just say all that out loud? Anyway. Here’s everything coming to Netflix TODAY! And the rest of the month. There’s some great comedies (Harold and Kumar, the first three Jackass movies) and our underrated pick of the month John Q (More on that below), not a single horror film in sight for the first day of May BUT we do have Stranger Things Season Four Part One later in the month.

Yikes, that title was more of a mouthful than Amber Heard’s Lawyer at a bullshit buffet. I’ll see myself out. Enjoy!

John Q

Our underrated pick of the month is John Q. When Denzel Washington’s son needs a heart transplant but they can’t afford it (because our medical care system is more fucked up than Ezra Miller at a Hawaiian Karaoke Jam) he holds the whole goddamn Hospital hostage to save his kid. It’s heartbreaking, edge of your seat and quite entertaining. One of those movies that when cable existed you would catch halfway through and just say “Well, there goes the next hour and a half of my life because my ass ain’t goin’ nowhere.”

Menace II Society
Once Upon a Time in America
Rambo: Last Blood

Road to Perdition
Seven Years in Tibet
Soul Surfer
The Gentlemen
The Lake House
U.S. Marshals
War of the Worlds
When Harry Met Sally
You’ve Got Mail
