What’s New on VOD: Netflix July 2017.
Netflix is busy this July adding tons of content, especially original series and movies.
It’s no secret Netflix has been ramping up its in-house production. What used to be a couple feature films, mostly throw-away Adam Sandler crud, is now a full on torrent of original series, dramas, and high caliber productions. We’ve already been pleasantly surprised by The Girl with All the Gifts, Shimmer Lake, and Okja in 2017, can Netflix keep up the output and quality?
Netflix July 2017:
Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile (July 14)
Chasing Coral (July 14)
To the Bone (July 14)
Ari Shaffir: Double Negative Collection (July 18)
Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special (July 25)
The Incredible Jessica James (July 28)
Our Pick: To the Bone
A young woman (Lily Collins) suffering from an eating disorder is shuffled from one program to the next, but never finds relief. When she winds up in the care of an unorthodox doctor (Keanu Reeves) she begins to find connections to other patients and her family that may help her confront her condition.
This is a funny but heartbreaking look into eating disorders, and it features an amazing performance from Lily Collins. The tone, dialogue, and the cinematography gel in an organic manner and I enjoy the supporting cast. It also has Keanu in it, so we’re all good!

Castlevania: Season 1 (July 7)

The Worst Witch: Season 1 (July 21)
The Advenutres of Puss In Boots: Season 5 (July 28)
Daughters of Destiny: Season 1 (July 28)
Our Pick: Castlevania
A rich and Gothic look at the beginning of the Castlevania mythology (taking for inspiration the game Castlevania 3.) We follow Trevor Belmont, the last member of a legendary clan of monster hunters who has been banished from his home. Belmont seeks to rid the land of evil and restore his honor by destroying the scourge of Walachia, Vlad Tepes Dracul: Dracula.
This baby has fantastic visual quality, a rich history to draw inspiration from, a solid voice cast, and is being written by Warren Ellis. Ellis has crafted some of the best counter-culture comics of the last 30 years (hello, Transmetropolitan!) and has worked on movies like Red and Iron Man 3. This series has a fine pedigree, indeed.
A family man (Jason Bateman) who works in the financial industry laundering money for drug cartels must run for his life. He takes his family of four and hides out in the secluded Missouri Ozarks, but old habits die hard and old grudges aren’t left behind so easily.
This drama looks brooding and atmospheric, with just a dash of caustic dark comedy. The cast is superb, and I’m interested to see how they play this crime-drama, as the trailer looks brutal.
