Luke Cage, Star Wars and the Sense8 Finale – Netflix Viewing Tips June 2018.

Summer will officially start next month, but Netflix continues to pop through with great series and films. Featuring Thor: Ragnarok, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the second season of Luke Cage, among others. PeterKoelewijn will update you on the best Netflix releases of June 2018!

Thor: Ragnarok – June 5

By far the best Thor movie will be released on Netflix on June 5! Thor must flee from Asgard after his long-incarcerated sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) escapes and claims the throne. Together with Loki (Tom Hiddleston), he ends up on a garbage planet from which he can only escape if he defeats The Hulk in a gladiatorial fight. The film has a lot more humor than its predecessors and a nice wrong Flash Gordon style. Also featuring Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge and Jeff Goldblum as Jeff Goldblum.

Sense8 Finals – June 8

Sense8 is a critical darling of the Wachowski sisters, but after 2 seasons Netflix pulled the plug due to too few viewers. Well they knew that, because after a long campaign led by die-hard fans, Sense8 will get the final it deserves on June 8. It is an extra long episode of 2 hours. Hopefully the makers will be able to tie up all loose ends in that time frame. Sense8 originally planned 5 seasons …

Luke Cage Season 2 – June 22

Regular Marvel viewers with a Netflix account can enjoy a new season of Luke Cage in June! The bundle of muscles kicked in Jessica Jones and his own first season quite a butt. In the second season, however, he encounters an enemy that even his super-strong bulletproof skin cannot withstand. That will be hours of fighting again!

Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi – June 26

Solo is now in cinemas, which means that Disney dares to bring the latest Star Wars movie to Netflix. The Last Jedi will be released on June 26 and you can watch the battle against The First Order continue. The film further covers Rey (Daisy Ridley) training under Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and how Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) roughly interrupted his Jedi training.

GLOW Season 2 – June 29

Alison Brie returns in the second season of GLOW, the sitcom about a team of female wrestlers in 1980s LA. Where the ladies were still in training in the first season, they will really get to work in the new season! In any case, the first trailer already contains everything I ever wanted.

And those are the Netflix viewing tips for June! As a bonus, a PU editor gives an extra tip of a movie or series that you can watch right now!

Marvin’s tip: Happy!

Christopher Meloni is one such actor who I saw passing everywhere and nowhere, but never really left a lasting impression on me. Okay, there is a movie that immediately springs to mind, namely Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle (how could it be otherwise with that make-up), but until Happy! Was recommended by Netflix, I never saw Meloni single-handedly wear a movie or series – and no, Law & Order and Amy Schumer movies aren’t my thing (surprise!). If you are in the same boat Happy! a fantastic way to meet him, because as the crazy, alcohol addict and incredibly rude ex-police officer Nick Sax, Meloni comes into its own.

Luke Cage, Star Wars and the Sense8 Finale – Netflix Viewing Tips June 2018

Happy! is not just another series about an ex-policeman who beats bad guys together while tapping back alcohol as if it were lemonade, because this one has a partner! And what a; the imaginary boyfriend Happy (voiced by Patton Oswalt), the ever-happy horse (/ unicorn) that appears to be the direct result of a near-death experience. But while a cheerful imaginary horse flutters across the image, the series is out to shock you. With a few raunchy scenes, hard-hitting, often unexpected action and a handful of impressive shots and equally impressive choreography, these eight episodes are over before you know it. The hilarious action is also alternated with a nice plot that gradually unfolds, with a little twist here and there and even a few feel-good moments, for example when Happy meets other imaginary friends. The tension between the rugged Nick Sax and the friendly but increasingly gloomy horse Happy remains in the eight episodes, and that’s just what Happy! so unique. That, and all that blood, of course. Oh, and Christmas, because why not?

What are you going to watch in June? Besides the E3 press conferences, of course?
