Netflix Streaming Report: The Guest, Hercules, Comet, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for July 30, 2015. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with The Guest, Hercules, Comet, and more. Also see what’s leaving Netflix Streaming this August.

The Guest Dan Stevens

The Guest (Adam Wingard) Rated R [99 min] – A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence. Starring Dan Stevens, Sheila Kelley, and Maika Monroe

If you love Adam Wingard’s You’re Next or maybe you saw It Follows earlier this year, The Guest is another awesome example of a new wave of modern horror movies utilizing ’80s synth and bringing an immense amount of fun. It’s not as horrifying as the first two, but Wingard’s The Guest is still very sharp and provides a lot of thrilling surprises. If you enjoy classic action movies, invite The Guest into your Netflix queue.

The Rock Hercules Dwayne Johnson

Hercules (Brett Ratner) Rated PG-13 [98 min] Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord. Starring Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, and Joseph Fiennes

This looked embarrassing for everyone involved. The GIF above kind of says it all. Good luck if you care to brave this ridiculousness.

Comet Movie Jason Long Emmy Rossum

Comet (Sam Esmail) Rated R [91 min] – Set in a parallel universe, Comet bounces back and forth over the course of an unlikely but perfectly paired couple’s six-year relationship. Starring Justin Long, Emmy Rossum, and Kayla Servi

I haven’t seen Comet, but the premise and the trailer appealed to me.

agents of smash she-hulk

Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. – The Complete Second Season (Wendy Willming) Rated TV-Y7-FV [23 min] – The Incredible Hulk teams up with Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and Rick Jones aka A-Bomb to battle the forces of evil in front of cameras for Rick’s web-based series to show the Hulk is more hero than monster.Creator: Starring Fred Tatasciore, Clancy Brown, and Seth Green

Marvel’s second iteration of The Avengers is not bad, so I would think that this Hulk team up show would be decent background noise. I haven’t seen it yet, but it’s harmless Marvel comics fun until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters next year.
