Get Your Tissues Ready, 'A Walk To Remember' Is Now On Netflix

Updated: 

The coronavirus outbreak is far from over. Although quarantine restrictions have been lifted in many areas, lots of people are still working remotely, everyone is still encouraged to practice social distancing, and it's inarguable that we are still safer at home as the number of infections continues to surge. So with everyone still cooped up in their houses and apartments, many are turning to Netflix in order to avoid cabin fever. Thankfully, the streaming service offers new content almost daily, and there are several new movies & shows on Netflix this week that will make self-quarantining a little more bearable.

Netflix has undeniably been trending toward becoming a service that offers mostly original programming over the past couple of years, as its library of older content has dwindled. But once in a while, a week comes along that still looks like the Netflix of old. This is one of those weeks. Netflix is streaming a ton of classic movies as we head into July; far more than fans have seen in recent memory. There's no shortage of Netflix originals either, including the anticipated new Baby-Sitters Club series, but the main draw is definitely the collection of classic films from decades past.

Below, you can learn a little more about the best releases that Netflix has coming your way this week. There's also a list of every new title from this week at the end.

01
'A Walk To Remember'

Believe it or not, this classic romance turns 18 this year, which is the same age that Mandy Moore was when she starred in it back in 2002. Although the film certainly didn't win the hearts of many critics, it remains a cult classic and a nostalgic favorite among many Millennials. It also has the distinction of being an early film adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, having been released two years before The Notebook.

Streaming July 1.

02
'Airplane!'

This 1980 comedy turns 40 years old this year, so predictably, not all of its jokes are going to line up perfectly with modern sensibilities. But don't let that dissuade you from checking it out, as Airplane!'s humor is mostly of the very silly and inoffensive variety. It remains one of the funniest films ever produced, and its gag-per-minute ratio arguably remains unmatched even today.

Streaming July 1.

03
'Schindler's List'

Prior to this movie's release in 1993, director Steven Spielberg was mainly known for a very specific type of film: blockbusters. The guy behind Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park wasn't really considered an auteur by most film critics. But that changed in a big way with this heart-wrenching drama about the Holocaust that picked up seven Oscars and is now regarded as one of the best films ever made.

04
'Sleepless In Seattle'

If it's a rom-com you're after, then you could certainly do a lot worse than this '90s favorite starring the iconic duo of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. The first of two classics of the genre in the decade to star the pair, the other being You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle has an overload of charm thanks to its two massively likable leads.

06
'Total Recall'

If you like your movies weird, then they don't get much weirder than this 1990 sci-fi flick. One of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best films, Total Recall is based on a short story by legendary science-fiction author Philip K. Dick. It features a wide-ranging and bizarre plot that follows a man in the future whose dreams about Mars lead him to discover that he isn't who he thinks he is. The special effects are also wild.

Streaming July 1.

07
'The Witches'

Yet another 1990 favorite based on the work of an iconic author, this film — based on the Roald Dahl story — terrified an entire generation of older Millennials. The movie ranks among the scariest kids flicks of all time, thanks in large part to the memorable scene in which star Anjelica Huston's Grand High Witch unveils her utterly horrifying true form.

Streaming July 1.

08
'Warrior Nun': Season 1

If you're of the opinion that there aren't enough female-led action series on TV, Netflix apparently shares your concern. This new original series, which is based on the comic book Warrior Nun Areala, tells the story of a 19-year-old woman who discovers that she is part of a secret society of, you guessed it, warrior nuns. She soon develops a habit (sorry) for fighting evil.

Streaming July 2.

'The Baby-Sitters Club': Season 1

The Baby-Sitters Club is one of the most beloved children's novel series of all time, with dozens of entries published throughout the 1980s and 1990s. But how would the material translate to today's youth? That's the question that this Gen Z-focused original series aims to answer, and by the looks of it, The Baby-Sitters Club is in good hands with the new generation.

Streaming July 3.

11
'Desperados'

Nasim Pedrad has been criminally underused throughout her career. From her beginnings on SNL to her second banana status in series and films like New Girl and Aladdin, the hilarious and ultra-talented Pedrad hasn't really had a big project to call her own. But now she's finally getting her shot in this original rom-com that stars her in the lead as a woman who heads to Mexico in an attempt to delete an ill-advised email.
