New on Netflix

The Mitchells vs. the Machines (new on Netflix)

A top comedy voice cast that includes Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Eric Andre, Maya Rudolph and Olivia Colman toplines The Mitchells vs. the Machines, a feature-length animated comedy that hits Netflix today. Reviews are encouraging, which is more than we can usually say for family-friendly fare that goes directly to streaming. Also available as of today is the Spanish series The Innocent, based on a novel by Harlan Coben, and something called Pet Stars, which is a behind-the-scenes look at a company that offers management services for animal influencers. If that’s not an apocalyptic vision, I don’t know what is.

A new month also means a huge drop of new-old titles, and there’s a particularly intriguing addition this month. Philippe Falardeau’s first film La moitié gauche du frigo has been difficult to see since a DVD reissue in 2009, but now that has been remedied — the film will be available to stream on Netflix as of May 2. Other highlights include Gandhi, the first three Rambo movies, the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex and Twister, all available as of May 2. There’s a slightly smaller drop of movies on May 5, including Casino, How High and Weird Science.

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse (new on Amazon Prime Video)

Michael B. Jordan stars in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, the House of Bezos’s latest attempt to court the conservative basement-dwelling dad audience. Jordan is Navy SEAL chief John Clark, who takes on corrupt Russian military operatives after his wife is murdered; Guy Pearce, Jamie Bell and Jodie Turner-Smith co-star. The film is one of Amazon’s biggest plays this year, though reviews are mediocre at best. 

As of May 1, you can stream As Good As It Gets, Hancock and My Best Friend’s Wedding, amongst others. Also worth noting is that Wild Mountain Thyme, John Patrick Shanley’s critically savaged Irish romance starring Jamie Dornan and Emily Blunt, is available to stream as of May 5.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (new on Crave)

Today on Crave you can catch a double whammy of Kristen Wiig as both her breakout hit Bridesmaids and her recent return to form Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar are available to stream. Fans of very tall European actors in exotic locales will be well-served by The Burnt Orange Heresy, an erotic neo-noir starring Elizabeth Debicki and Claes Bang. Unlike other streaming services, Crave doesn’t top-load the beginning of the month with releases, so early May is pretty quiet, with only the newest season of voguing reality show Legendary dropping on May 6.
