The best movies on Netflix for the summer of 2018

Are you looking for something great to stream on Netflix this summer (2018)? Looking for inspiration for a great movie? Here are some movies that might cheer you up!

Netflix is turning more and more into a hub for their own original productions. And, when Disney will open their own streaming portal sometime in 2019, even more, content will disappear from the Netflix website. But, if you want to watch a great movie tonight, here are some suggestions.

Wonder Woman

This movie was one of the greatest surprises to me in 2017. I didn’t expect much when I went to watch Wonder Woman at the cinema, but I left the theater very surprised. Gal Gadot was amazing in her role as Wonder Woman, and the entire story was one I easily liked. The mixture of real-life history (of course messed up), and a superhero was great.

If you want to watch Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman on Netflix, then it can be done easily. You can currently watch Wonder Woman in the Scandinavian Netflix regions and on Australian Netflix.

Thor: Ragnarok

Wonder Woman was a great movie, but Thor gives you more than just action, he comes with a lot of humor. I am not a big fan of Iron Man, but Thor… he is the man! Even when he is close to dying, he makes fun of his opponents, and he has a smile on his face. Thor: Ragnarok is the last movie so far in the Thor series, and it was a great watch. My favorite part of the movie is when Thor is up for a battle against the Hulk!

You can watch Thor: Ragnarok on Canadian and US Netflix.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The most recent Star Wars movie arrived quickly to Netflix, and it has been there for a couple of weeks already. If you haven’t seen it already, this is a great chance to do so. It can currently be streamed on both US and Canadian Netflix, making it a real treat during the summer holiday. Personally, I did enjoy The Force Awakens more than The Last Jedi, but this was still a good movie.

Now You See Me

This movie was a thrill. It was packed with surprises and an interesting plot, and I have seen it at least five times. In this movie, we meet some magicians working together on a great plot. But, we do not know what the plot really is before the movie comes to an end. This is a movie that will grab a hold of you, and you will be stuck to the screen longing to find out how and why everything is happening.

You can watch Now You See Me on Netflix in Canada, USA, UK, Scandinavian countries and lots of other regions.

The sequel, Now You See Me 2, wasn’t as good as the first movie, but it was still a good one. If you like the first one and want to see the sequel then it can be found on Netflix in Canada, UK, Ireland, Spain and some other regions.

The Holiday

Do you just want to watch a romantic movie? Watch The Holiday from 2006. It isn’t exactly a summer movie, but it is a holiday movie, and it is perfect as a romantic treat for a couple. I have seen this movie several times already, and I never mind watching it over again. It has humor, it is romantic, and it is simply a nice movie to watch.

The Holiday can currently be seen on Netflix in USA, Canada, Germany, Norway, India, and quite a lot of other regions.


Want to watch an old classic? Go for Stripes, a movie with Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, John Candy, and several others from 1981. This was a movie I watched a lot in the 90s, but I haven’t watched it since then. It tells the story of a guy who loses everything, and by impulse, he decides to join the army. Not everyone is happy about that. A great comedy for those who like a classic!

You can watch Stripes on lots of Netflix regions, including US Netflix.
