Best Netflix movies in June 2022
Below, we’ll cover all the best Netflix movies coming to the streaming platform in June 2022. As usual, we’ve tried to divide the movies into movies you must watch and those you can skip, but don’t take. it “jumps” to the core because it usually just means that the movie in question might not be interesting to anyone but a specific audience, not that the movie is necessarily evil Or anything!
Watch! With Elsa Pataky and Luke Bracey, Interceptor is an action-packed thriller with a strong message of female empowerment. The film also takes place almost entirely in the same location, which makes the action sequences and the sense of combat crackle with kinetic energy. Plus, it’s always great to see a female-led action movie, and Pataky proves she’s just as capable of her Marvel superhero hubby in this film. Speaking of Hemsworth, he’s also an executive producer.

Watch! I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge fan of Adam Sandler comedies, but I do enjoy him as a dramatic actor. Uncut Gems was excellent and Hustle is a sports drama that promises to stand apart from Sandler.
Besides the comedian, the film also stars Queen Latifah, Ben Foster and Robert Duvall, with LeBron James producing alongside Sandler. Sandler plays failed basketball scout Stanley Sugarman who attempts to revive his career by recruiting a new foreign player for the NBA, without consulting his team first. NBA fans will also want to watch as several NBA stars will feature in the film.

To jump! Diehard Jennifer Lopez fans should do not hop on this behind-the-scenes documentary offering an intimate glimpse into the grit and determination that made J.Lo a superstar, but those who don’t listen to much music or know little about Lopez can probably skip this one.

The wrath of God
To jump! With so many new movies and shows coming out this summer on Netflix, it’s hard to watch it all. We don’t know much about The wrath of God Still, it’s hard to say whether this Argentinian thriller will be worth watching. A woman named Luciana attempts to expose the truth about a famous novelist she worked for when she becomes suspicious of his involvement in her parents’ deaths. A tentative skip for now, but if the plot intrigues you, give it a chance.

The man from Toronto
To jump! Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, Kaley Cuoco and Ellen Barkin lead the cast of this new action comedy with Hart and Harrelson in the lead roles. The storyline is simple, a misfire is forced to team up with an assassin after the two get confused while staying at an Airbnb.
If you like Hart and/or comedies, this one looks like a fun popcorn flick and one of the biggest Netflix movies to get excited about for June. That said, Hart’s humor is often hit or miss with most, so unless you like his movies in general, you might want to skip this one.
