By Rob Hunter · Printed on August 2nd, 2022

Crossing the Streams is a sequence of columns spotlighting all of the choices hitting the large streaming providers every month. This time we’re testing the brand new Netflix arrivals for August 2022. They embrace a brand new slice of South Korean motion in Carter, the premiere of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, and extra!

Netflix Choose of the Month for August 2022



You possibly can’t assist however get excited when a brand new movie from the author/director of The Villainess (2017) and Confession of Homicide (2012) arrives, so yeah, our choose of the month is one to be enthusiastic about. Jung Byung-gil’s Carter (premieres August fifth) incorporates a acquainted sufficient plot a couple of man with no reminiscence compelled to battle his strategy to the reality, however with Jung, it’s all concerning the execution. His movies at all times ship the products on the motion entrance, they usually usually achieve this with model, creativity, and power. Some could mood their anticipation on the realization that this can be a Netflix Authentic, however whereas the streamer has launched some big-budget motion duds over time (The Gray Man, harmless), their smaller, worldwide Originals have been fairly rattling dependable.

New Netflix Originals for August 2022

Day Shift

Neil Gaiman has already seen quite a lot of of his creations hit the small display, however his newest would possibly simply be essentially the most anticipated by followers. (And by followers, I imply followers, not the assholes whining on-line concerning the casting.) The Sandman (premieres August fifth) adapts Gaiman’s widespread graphic novel sequence a couple of character named Dream, “the personification of goals,” who seeks the entire belongings he misplaced whereas imprisoned by a mad wizard. Tom Sturridge takes the lead function and is joined by Boyd Holbrook, Jenna Coleman, Gwendoline Christie, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Patton Oswalt, David Thewlis, Charles Dance, Joely Richardson, Stephen Fry, and extra.

Motion/comedies are at all times welcome on this home, and that’s all of the extra true after they add a touch of horror into the combination. Day Shift (premieres August twelfth) seems to be to test off all three of these style containers with its story of a pool cleaner (Jamie Foxx) whose precise job is as a vampire killer. The forged is an eclectic one, with Scott Adkins, Dave Franco, Meagan Good, and Snoop Dogg all becoming a member of Foxx for the California-set enjoyable. Director J.J. Perry is making his function debut right here after dealing with 2nd unit directing duties on quite a few motion hits, so right here’s hoping he pulls it off.

It would generally appear that I’m solely concerning the style fare hitting the varied streamers, however my tastes are legion, pals. Working example? The third season of By no means Have I Ever (premieres August twelfth) continues with extra of one of the best factor Mindy Kaling has ever been part of (outdoors of The Workplace, clearly). She’s a co-creator/producer right here and doesn’t star as as an alternative, it follows the ups and downs within the lifetime of an Indian-American teenager balancing household, faculty, and romance. It’s a humorous sitcom, narrated inexplicably however hilariously by John McEnroe — as himself! — that stays true to itself whereas racking up some enjoyable instances.

Babak Anvari’s Beneath the Shadow (2016) stays one hell of a function debut, and whereas his follow-up movie (2019’s disappointing Wounds) was a stumble he’s nonetheless a expertise price watching. His newest movie is a Netflix Authentic thriller referred to as I Got here By (premieres August thirty first), and it follows two younger adults whose love for hijinks and graffiti lands them in actual bother. No, not with the legislation, however with a strong man who’ll do something to guard the soiled little secret they found. Strong sufficient setup, and it’s bolstered by a forged that features George MacKay, Kelly Macdonald, and Hugh Bonneville.

Seen That Blockbuster? Now Watch These!

The Nice Guys

Warner Bros.

Typically you watch a giant blockbuster and stroll out questioning, “hey, what else has this director or actor been in that I can watch on Netflix?” If this occurred to you after ending this 12 months’s Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity, properly, director Sam Raimi’s first huge stab at comedian e book motion pictures is now accessible on the streamer! His Spider-Man trilogy (2002-2007) is regarded by some to be one of the best of the big-screen superhero motion pictures, and now you may both decide for your self or nod in settlement with a rewatch.

Whereas The Grey Man is much from a conventional blockbuster, it was a giant launch for Netflix final month (whether or not you prefer it or not). Ryan Gosling performs a killer with a flippant however dry humorousness, and its tone reminds lots of Shane Black’s The Good Guys (2016, premieres August ninth). That movie didn’t fairly set the field workplace on fireplace, however its followers are quite a few and vocal. I choose Black’s superior 2005 buddy-action/comedy effort, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang — which additionally tanked in theaters — however you may’t go mistaken with The Good Guys. Gosling and Russell Crowe are wildly entertaining as a mismatched pair of personal dicks, and in case you’ve received a few hours to spare, it’s properly price your time.

The Oldest New Arrival to Netflix for August 2022

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

One of many ongoing complaints in opposition to Netflix is its prioritizing of current movies/exhibits and concentrate on new content material on the expense of older motion pictures. To that finish, I like to focus on the oldest new arrival every month, and August’s winner is 1986’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It’s the oldest arrival by a large margin as the following oldest movies are from the 90s, and whereas it’s not underseen it’s a comedy basic. As with many motion pictures extra a era previous, John Hughes’ masterful ode to chaos and irresponsibility has been focused by newer viewers as “not good, truly,” however fuck ’em, it’s nonetheless a masterful take a look at the thought all of us must say goodbye to our youth sooner or later.
