Here Are The Movies Coming To Netflix This Week

Netflix adds a movie you’ve likely already seen this week. And if you haven’t seen it, now is your chance to finally catch up with the American zeitgeist.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” joins on June 26. The movie earned well over $1 billion at the box office and only debuted in theaters last December. It’s fairly rare that Netflix adds such a recently popular movie, so this is a particularly noteworthy addition.

If you’ve already seen the movie or simply aren’t a fan of “Star Wars,” Netflix does have a few other movies joining this week.

“Mohawk” is probably your best bet. It’s a horror movie that focuses on a violent cat-and-mouse game between Native Americans and members of the early American military.

Another streaming option is “TAU,” a horror offering about humans who are forced to help an AI computer get smarter by completing painful tasks. With hope of escape diminishing, the captives try to fight back against their robot captor.

Check out the trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” below (although you’ve likely already seen it, as the YouTube version alone has over 50 million views).

The Most Notable Movie Coming To Netflix This Week

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” | June 26

Premise: A political faction called the Resistance is struggling to survive, while their enemy, the First Order, reigns supreme.

With the Resistance on the brink of decimation, a long-shot effort is made to convince an old war hero to come join the fight.

The lines of good and evil eventually become blurred in this battle and multiple characters question what they’re even fighting for.

Is it actually good? Yes.

There have been hilarious efforts to claim this movie is terrible. (An especially funny example is the “Remake The Last Jedi” campaign featured in the tweet below.)

But “The Last Jedi” is easily one of the best “Star Wars” movies in the franchise. It’s the only one that truly rises to seek answers to the philosophical questions so many have looked to these movies for in the past. What is the nature of good and evil in war? How should religion inform a well-lived life? Is a world with extreme haves and have-nots morally corrupt?

As with all of the “Star Wars” movies, there are minor problems, of course. Characters act like idiotic children too often. Elements of the plot don’t hold up with much scrutiny.

Still, this is an extremely fun and thoughtful movie. So many scenes are beautifully shot. The action sequences are thrilling. Despite the long runtime, it’s a movie well worth watching.

Runtime: 2 hours, 32 minutes

Here’s the trailer …
