Netflix Streaming Report: Inuyasha, Transformers 4, The Butler, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for June 18, 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 Inuyasha, Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Butler, and more.

transformers: age of extinctio

Transformers: Age of Extinction (Michael Bay) Rated PG-13 [165 min] – An automobile mechanic and his daughter make a discovery that brings down the Autobots – and a paranoid government official – on them. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Kelsey Grammer, and Stanley Tucci

Although this movie is one of the biggest tragedies to happen in all of cinema, Transformers: Age of Extinction is kind of cool to watch on mute.

inuyasha

InuYasha (Season 1-2) (Rumiko Takahashi) Rated TV-14 [24 min] – A teenage girl periodically travels back in time to feudal Japan to help a young half demon recover the shards of a orb of great power. Starring Moneca Stori, Richard Ian Cox, and Kirby Morrow

It’s great that InuYasha is back on Netflix Streaming, however, it’s only the first two seasons and would best be watched in an entire sitting. InuYasha has a fair amount of content with a good handful of filler episodes. It would just feel more complete to watch it all at once. But I’d still check the series out!

the butler oprah

The Butler (Lee Daniels) – As Cecil Gaines serves eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other major events affect this man’s life, family, and American society. Starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, John Cusack, David Banner, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, and James Marsden

I’m not as impressed with Lee Daniels’ The Butler as most people, but you can now check it out on Netflix Streaming to see for yourself.

death note

Death Note (Tetsurō Araki) Rated TV-14 [24 min] – An intelligent high school student goes on a secret crusade to eliminate criminals from the world after discovering a notebook capable of killing anyone whose name is written into it. Staring: Mamoru Miyano, Brad Swaile, and Vincent Tong

Here’s an anime series that has been on my to-do list for quite some time. I’ve only heard wonderful things about it. Those who don’t like dark anime might not enjoy this series, but I’m going to give it a whirl.

The Cobbler Adam Sandler

The Cobbler (Thomas McCarthy) Rated PG-13 [99 min] – Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man’s shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are. Starring Dan Stevens, Adam Sandler, and Steve Buscemi

The concept is interesting, but from what I’ve read from other reviews is that The Cobbler is pretty terrible. This seems like a departure from the slapstick comedy audiences have been accustom to with Happy Madison and Adam Sandler, which I’m all for. So I’d like to see for myself.
