10 Movies to stream on Netflix the summer of 2017

Doctor Strange

This is a newcomer movie from Marvel which just recently arrived to Netflix. In this mixture of sci-fi and down to earth action you can see Benedict Cumberbatch play a role totally different from his role as Sherlock Holmes. Here he has supernatural powers and fight evil who want to take dominion over the earth. Not the best Marvel movie ever, and not at all as good as Wonder Woman, but still a nice movie to watch this summer.

Lion is a movie that was nominated for six Academy Awards statues, but unfortunately it did not win any. It is however a quality movie, and you should of course stream it. The story is based on the book named A Long Way Home, and it can be seen in a few different Netflix regions.


If you are a person interested in real life, who want to know more about how our governments supervise whatever we do and get to know more about the person Edward Snowden, why not take some minutes to stream Snowden on Netflix?

Despicable Me 2

With the third movie in the Despicable Me series coming to theaters around the world this summer, you should take your family and watch Despicable Me 2 on Netflix. In that way you can be well prepared for the new movie coming up, and you can let the Minion fever keep living in the hearts of your children. The Despicable Me series has received lots of praise, and it is absolutely worth watching.


The brand new Disney movie will arrive on Netflix on June 20th. It will then be made available on US Netflix, and it will be a real treat for fans of brilliant animated movies. In this movie we follow the girl Moana. She is the daughter of a tribe leader, and in this movie she is chosen by the ocean to reunite a special relic with a goddess. In the movie a blight hits the island, and afterwards Moana is set out to save her people and make things get good again.

The movie was nominated for two Academy Awards. You can stream it on both US and Canadian Netflix.

Shutter Island

This ain’t a new movie, but it is a brilliant movie with Leonardi Di Caprio and Mark Ruffalo. The movie is directed my Martin Scorsese, and whenever I see the movie it makes me think. The end of the movie has been left open, and I have often discussed it with my family how the end of the movie should be interpreted. That is what makes it so brilliant, because the story is left open for the viewer to decide what really happens in the end.

The movie is kind of dark, it is windy and it is tense. You can for example stream Shutter Island on US Netflix.

Edge of Tomorrow

This is one of my favorite action movies in the last year. Recently the news was released that a follow up movie will come, meaning that you definitely need to stream and watch Edge of Tomorrow on Netflix before the successor will show up in cinemas worldwide. In this movie we follow Tom Cruise who in a Groundhog Day kind of way get to experience the same day over and over again. But, in Edge of Tomorrow much more is at stake than just his very own life. In Edge of Tomorrow it is about saving the world from intruders from outer space who try to take over control of the earth. It might sound boring, but a movie definitely worth watching.

This movie can currently be seen on Swiss, French, Italian and Belgian Netflix.

Now You See Me

As I watched this movie in the cinema I simply fell in love with the story and all the effects. The magicians impressed me a lot, and especially their tricks. It was so amazing to watch, and I actually had to watch the movie 2-3 times before I understood everything. If you want to see a great movie with both magic, action and a great story, this is the movie to watch.

This movie can be seen on Canadian, Mexican, Norwegian, German and Dutch Netflix.

Now You See Me 2

If you have seen Now You See Me, then you will want to stream the second movie as well. Luckily that movie can be streamed on Netflix as well, and in this follow up movie you will get to enjoy two more hours in front of your screen. Even though it is a successor, it is still great to watch and I am sure that you will have a great time as you do so. My favorite actor in both Now You See Me movies is Woody Harrelson, who plays his role in a fantastic way. In addition to him Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Daniel Radcliffe also do great jobs in this movie.

This movie can currently only be seen on Indian Netflix.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

If you haven’t seen the movie which is numbered as the seventh Star Wars movie, then you better get going before the eight movie will be released before Christmas in 2017. It is hard to create a successor in such an important movie series, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens received brilliant critics all across the world, and even the most hardcore Star Wars fans shared their enthusiasm about the movie.

You can currently stream The Force Awakens on Canadian, Norwegian, Dutch and Belgian Netflix.

  1. I don’t like Doctor Strange. They used to much money on effects, instead of creating a good story… I would much rather watch Wonder Woman, but guess that can’t be found on Netflix yet.

    1. I guess we all have different taste, and you are right, it will probably be at least half a year before Wonder Woman will be released on Netflix, maybe before Christmas if we are lucky?!
