New on Netflix – June 29th and July 6th

Got Netflix?

Well, even though the studios are squeezing Netflix by forcing DVD release delays on them, we still want to know what’s new, now don’t we?  Of course we do.  More now than ever since some films will release for purchase and rental on the same day and others will be held hostage for a month.  So here we go!

June 29th

The Crazies (horror, Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell) – Netflix and purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray

The White Ribbon (German drama, Ulrich Tukur, Susanne Lothar) – Netflix and purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray

The Eclipse (thriller, Ciaran Hinds, Iben Hjejle) – Netflix and purchase release, DVD and Blu-ray

Creation (biography, Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly) Netflix and purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray

The Wolfman (horror, Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins) Netflix release, DVD and Blu-Ray – delayed 28 days from June 1st purchase release

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (children and family, Logan Lerman, Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan) – purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray, Netlix delay probably until the end of July

Hot Tub Time Machine (comedy, John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry) – purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray – Netflix delay – look for it at the end of July

The Pagan Queen (sci-fi/fantasy, Winter Ave Zoli, Csaba Lucas) – Purchase release, DVD – Netflix release delayed

Airline Disaster (action/adventure, Meredith Baxter, Lindsay McKeon) – purchase release, DVD, delayed Netflix release – this one looks like a Direct to Video release.  Maybe it will never come out on Netflix.  Maybe we don’t want it to…

July 6th

Brooklyn’s Finest (drama, Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, Wesley Snipes, Antoine Fuqua director) – Netflix and Purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (foreign thriller, Michaeil Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace, Sven-Bertil Taube, Ewa Frohling, based on novel by Stieg Larsson) – Netflix and purchase release, DVD, Blu-Ray and Netflix Instant Streaming

A Single Man (drama, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore) – Netflix and purchase release, DVD and Blu-Ray

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 7 (TV comedy, Larry David, Cheryl Hines) – Netflix release, DVD, delayed from June 8th purchase release

That’s a big up-tick in delayed releases.  Now that we all know now that it results in no increased DVD sales, no financial gain for the studios and a highly probable increase in piracy, it just makes the studios look stupid and stubborn.  Remember, Warner Bros., Fox and Universal – piss me off, lose my money down the road.  For once have a little foresight and admit that your actions make no sense, achieve nothing other than ticking off DVD renters and ultimately increase criminal piracy and maybe I’ll consider spending my money on your theatrical releases.  I’m petty and vindictive, Hollywood, don’t try my patience.

On the other hand – so cool that Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will get Instant Streaming right away!  Petty, vindictive and fickle.  That’s me!

This week let’s have Raisinettes, shall we?
