Best Netflix movies to watch this weekend, July 7


Watch! In the summer of 2011, Bridesmaids became a blockbuster hit and an instant classic. Kristen Wiig stars in the comedy as a maid of honor contending with a fellow bridesmaid for her best friend’s wedding. The wild R-rated comedy delivers laughs that stand the test of time and features an Academy Award-nominated performance from Melissa McCarthy. It’s always a wonderful idea to revisit the hilarious movie that just gets better with each watch.


Skip! The new Netflix original documentary film Wham! traces the highs and lows of the titular band’s career in the 1980s. George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley’s pop duo gets a closer look through archival footage and interviews, beginning with their friendship in the 1970s. If you’re not a big fan of Wham! or music in general, this might not be the documentary to watch on Netflix this weekend.

The Out-Laws

Watch! In need of a good laugh this weekend? Adam Devine, Nina Dobrev, Pierce Brosnan, and Ellen Barkin star in the new comedy film The Out-Laws, and it’s sure to be a big hit. Adam Sandler produced the comedy about a banker who fears his future in-laws might be the dangerous outlaws who held up his bank. It’s one of Netflix’s biggest original comedy movie releases of the summer. Don’t miss it!

The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Skip! The Huntsman: Winter’s War has a lot going for it, including its amazing cast, which includes Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Chastain. However, the prequel-sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman was a critically panned box office bomb. That doesn’t make it any less worth watching, but if it’s not your kind of movie and you feel inclined to watch it after seeing it on the top 10, feel free to give it a skip.


Watch! Annihilation is one of those movies that you truly have to see to believe. Based on the novel of the same name by James VanderMeer, the sci-fi psychological horror film was praised by critics and it’s clear to see why. While it’s slightly confusing, Natalie Portman’s always a force on screen and she’s well worth the price of admission for the thought-provoking, visually appealing movie that’s been underrated for too long.
