Summer's just around the corner, and for those looking to avoid sunburn and surf, what better way to spend the time than diving into a whole new slew of films and TV shows streaming for your convenience? Luckily, there are 14 movies and shows new to Netflix in June with near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes scores for you to watch.
The so-called "Rotten Tomatoes Effect", a claim by those in the film and television industries that early reviews on the site create a negative bandwagon effect on box office take, have been disproven. And of course, the system has its flaws — it's a percentage based on the average of aggregate reviews, so the fewer reviews something has, the more devastating a poor one can be on its overall score. Regardless, though, Rotten Tomatoes is still an excellent tool for general consensus, and a way to help you decide what films and TV shows are definitely must-sees.
Netflix has plenty of gems hitting in June to choose from, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There's also plenty of Marvel madness with two new seasons of Luke Cage and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., respectively, as well as action hit Thor: Ragnarok, and a new season of Supergirl. And obviously, there are some non-blockbusters coming too, like Oscar darlings and indie flicks. Who needs to leave the couch for action when these acclaimed movies and shows exist?
