Netflix Canada: What's Good In May 2016?

Posted: Updated:

Spring brought some great premieres to Netflix Canada, such as new seasons of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "Daredevil" and "House of Cards."

And the momentum doesn't stop in May.

One of the top picks for the month is "Tangled," a Disney film that was a favourite among kids until "Frozen" blew it right out of the water.

It tells the story of Princess Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), she of the long hair who was locked in a tower.

Longing to see the world, she remains there until a bandit named Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) stumbles upon her.

And that's just one of many titles you can see on the streaming service this month.

Netflix Canada Picks for May 2016

"Bridge of Spies"

Criminally underseen when it hit theatres, this Steven Spielberg thriller tells the story of Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), a suspected Soviet spy who is arrested in the United States. Insurance lawyer James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks) is tasked with defending him in court — and, subsequently, his return to the Soviet Union. Rylance won the Oscar for Best Actor for his stoic performance as Abel.

"Edge of Tomorrow"

Tom Cruise starred in this sci-fi actioner from Doug Liman, director of "The Bourne Identity." It tells the story of an arrogant military officer who is thrust into combat with aliens and finds himself stuck in a time loop, forced to live the same day over and over again. The film didn't draw nearly the audience it deserved in theatres. Netflix users can right that wrong.

"Mission Impossible — Rogue Nation"

Tom Cruise is back for the fifth instalment of the "Mission: Impossible" franchise. The Impossible Missions Force (IMF) is on the cusp of being disbanded, and Ethan Hunt is forced to do battle with a dangerous organization known as the Syndicate. Watch the film if only to indulge one of the greatest actions scenes ever to take place in a concert hall.


"Bloodline," season 2

Kyle Chandler of "Friday Night Lights" fame stars in this family drama about a black sheep of a brother (Ben Mendelsohn) who causes turmoil when he comes home.
