Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from July 12-18.

NETFLIX

Animal Kingdom S5 (13th)

Crikey, the Yanks must really love our movies! Here’s the fifth (!) season of quality telly based on the 2010 Aussie film that starred Ben Mendelsohn, Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver. Allegedly quite good for fans of family crime dramas.

Never Have I Ever navigates the confusing nightmare of adolescence with a smile on its face and twinkle in its eye. Picture: Netflix

Never Have I Ever S2 (15th)

The second season of the Mindy Kaling-created teen dramedy is here and is sure to delight with its mix of humour, wry observation and a great lead performance from young actress Maitreyi Ramakrishnan.

Van Helsing S5 (15th)

The fifth season of the post-apocalyptic vamps versus humans thriller is here and, honestly, if you’ve been watching this long, you probably know what to expect. Fangs for the memories!

ALL OF THE HARRY POTTER MOVIES (15th)

Yep, exactly what it says on the tin. Netty’s going to be dropping ALL of the Harry Potter films from the main series and being that lockdown’s been extended for many of us, the timing could not be better.

Fear Street Part Three: 1666 (16th)

The third and final Fear Street film is here, and continuing the tradition of going back in time. This one is going waaay back to the ye olde year of 1666 (geddit?) and we can finally find out how this whole situation began.

STAN

Miracle Workers: Oregon Trail (14th)

The third season of the wildly surreal show that stars Steve Buscemi as a lazy, slacker God and Daniel Radcliffe as a low-level angel named Craig. Yes, it’s as weird as it sounds but also funny and occasionally quite sweet.

Wake in Fright (2017 mini-series) (15th)

Should they have tried to remake the 1971 Australian classic? Probably not, that was a once in a lifetime film. Still, director Kriv Stenders (one of the hardest working blokes in Aussie cinema) pulls out all the stops to create a worthy, underrated yarn here.

Dr. Death S1 (16th)

Based on the hit true crime podcast, Dr. Death stars Joshua Jackson (Pacey!) as Dr. Christopher Duntsch, whose surgical practises did not obey the Hippocratic oath. This is sure to be gripping, disturbing stuff. Christian Slater and Jamie Dornan also star.

BINGE

The White Lotus (12th)

The White Lotus comes around when everyone could use a laugh or two. Set on a tropical resort, it’s about the staff and guests set over the course of a week. Starring Murray Bartlett, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge and Alexandra Daddario this looks like a subversive hoot.

Ronan Farrow is here to ask some very uncomfortable questions on Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes. Picture: BINGE

Catch and Kill: The Podcast Tapes (13th)

The series follows Ronan Farrow as he conducts interviews with victims, whistleblowers and private detectives pertaining to the Harvey Weinstein abuse cases that were used in Farrow’s book Catch and Kill. This promises to be gripping, uncomfortable stuff.

PICK OF THE WEEK

Mr Inbetween S3 (15th)

One of Australia’s most underrated exports, Mr Inbetween drops its third and final season. Following Ray (Scott Ryan) a hitman who also tries to be a good father and loving boyfriend, this is dark, intelligent and sometimes funny stuff. Well worth a watch.

American Horror Stories S1 (16th)

Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story spin-off will feature individual stories, telling spooky one-and-done tales. Expect the same over-the-top camp and complete lack of restraint from the main show, along with a bunch of celebrities including Kaia Gerber, Paris Jackson, Matt Bomer and Danny Trejo.

Amazon Prime Video

Men in Black trilogy (15th)

The Men in Black movies are a delightful lot, really. Well, okay, the first and third ones are delightful. The second one is a bit forgettable. And, uh, we’re not even going to mention whatever the hell Men in Black: International was meant to be. Anyway, two good movies and one okay(ish) one right here.

Call Me By Your Name (15th)

2017’s acclaimed coming-of-age romance is now on Amazon Prime Video and well worth your time. Although, due to certain recent developments, watching a romantic story starring Arnie Hammer may feel a little different than it did four years ago… Still, it’s hard to argue with that gorgeous scenery.

Making the Cut S2 (16th)

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn return for another season of putting designers through their paces. Expect loads of FASHUN and D-RAAAAAAAMA here, along with tearful confessions and people absolutely losing their minds over dumb stuff like fabric density. We can’t wait!

DISNEY+

Loki S1 finale (14th)

Wait, what?! Loki’s ending already? Just when you start to get attached, it’s all over. Still, Loki’s surprisingly stellar, imaginative first season is certain to have a startling ending that will reveal much about the future of the Marvel Universe.
