Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from July 19-25.

NETFLIX

Sexy Beasts (21st)

New dating show where contestants are covered in prosthetics and makeup so they look like animals. Yep, it’s just as weird as it sounds. If you’re wondering who this show’s for? It’s furries, friend. It’s loads of super toey furries.

Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans (21st)

Guillermo del Toro’s delightful Trollhunters series continues with Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans. The animated movie is sure to delight children of all ages with its trademark brand of scary monsters, spectacular action and colourful whimsy.

PICK OF THE WEEK

Masters of the Universe: Revelation (23rd)

Guess who’s back? Yes, 35 years after the muscle-bound bro and his mates finished up on the telly, He-Man returns courtesy of director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma). This animated shot of weaponised nostalgia features an all-star cast including Mark Hamill, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lena Headey and Alicia Silverstone. Hopefully, it has the power… to entertain.

Sky Rojo S2 (23rd)

Three sex workers are on the run from their violent, psychotic pimp in the second season of this frenetic, action-packed Spanish language blast. This is total pulp fiction, but delivered surprisingly effectively.

The Movies That Made Us S2 (23rd)

The second season of this fascinating documentary program is here, showcasing deep dives into the films that captured the collective attention of pretty much everyone. This season takes a gander at Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Pretty Woman and Forrest Gump.

Kingdom: Ashin of the North (23rd)

Have ya’ll been watching Kingdom? Netflix’s South Korean period zombie yarn is an absolute belter. If you haven’t seen it you should amend that situation quicksticks. Also, enjoy this brand new prequel/sidequel movie set in the same universe that promises to be as gripping and stylish as the main show.

STAN

Persepolis (19th)

Thought-provoking Iranian animated movie based on the graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi. It’s a coming-of-age story of a young girl, set against the Iranian revolution, and is moving and very human. Great stuff if you’re in the mood for something a little different.

Mystery Road S2 (20th)

Brilliant Aussie neo-noir drops its excellent second season. Watch as Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen) struggles to unravel the mystery of a decapitated body found in the mangroves of Western Australia.

BINGE

Baptiste S2 (20th)

BBC’s brilliant spin-off from The Missing now drops its second season and it’s just as gripping and taut as you might expect. Tchéky Karyo is superb in the titular role of Julien Baptiste, but this latest mystery might just break him.

Game Night (24th)

You know what? You should watch this underrated 2018 black comedy. It stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams and is about a game night that goes waaay too far. It’s legit hilarious, and chockers with twists and well worth your time and attention.

Sid and Nancy (25th)

The true(ish) story of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen remains an abrasive, at times tragic, tale and the film by Alex Cox (Repo Man) has lost none of its bite over the years. Gary Oldman’s performance in particular is a reason enough to experience this 1986 cult classic.

Amazon Prime Video

Songbird (19th)

The first of a (hopefully) limited number of COVID-19 themed thrillers is set in 2024, where COVID sufferers are being put in camps and lockdown is everlasting. Look, if you’re not sick of COVID-19 yet maybe this will be for you? Otherwise, a big oof.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always (23rd)

Thoughtful, complex and very human drama about a woman in New York who wants to get an abortion. Obviously not for everyone, but a sensitive indie drama awaits those interested in the quiet charms of a well told, small story.

War With Grandpa (24th)

The latest film that makes us wonder if Robert De Niro owes money to loan sharks, has the Academy Award winner playing an annoying grandpa who moves in with his daughter’s family. Uma Thurman, Christopher Walken and Cheech Marin also star in this odd bit of fitfully amusing slapstick.

DISNEY+

Turner and Hooch S1 (21st)

It’s a brand spanking new show based on the 1989 buddy comedy flick that starred Tom Hanks and an enormous doggo. Hopefully this one features a slightly less heartbreaking ending, because we are still shook from that movie.

Beyond the Attraction S1 (21st)

Documentary series about the behind the scenes shenanigans that take place in Disney theme parks. Find out how, why and who made these iconic rides come to life, and what it took to make them so beloved.

Stuntman (23rd)

Fascinating documentary about renowned stuntman Eddie Braun who reflects on his decades-long career, which included crashes of a literal and personal nature, and attempts one final stunt based on his idol Evel Knievel.

Playing With Sharks (23rd)

Aussie diver and nature photographer Valerie Taylor’s documentary attempts to make people understand that sharks are more than just the scary toothy antagonists from films like Jaws and Deep Blue Sea. Beautifully shot and quite eye opening stuff.

Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Loki (23rd)

Loki season one has finished and that’s a total bummer! However, this deep dive into the making of process should help fill in the time we have to wait until season two. That long, seemingly endless, gulf of time...
