The 2004 Nicholas Sparks-adaptation The Notebook is coming to Netflix on July 18th. Let’s be honest, even though you’ve probably seen it many times before, watching Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams have a love affair is something you can always watch again. “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” Speaking of McAdams, the Oscar-winning film Spotlight, which dramatizes the incredible true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered decades of hidden abuse within the Catholic Church, arrives on Netflix July 22nd.

The month kicks off with the great disaster movie spoof Airplane!, starring Robert Hays as former fighter pilot Ted Striker and Julie Hagerty as Ted’s ex-girlfriend, Elaine, a flight attendant.

Commedies to look out for
The big new comedy coming to Netflix on July 3rd is Desperados.

Arriving July 19 is the complete ten-part docu-series The Last Dance, which chronicles the end of Michael Jordan’s basketball career. No matter how many ballplayers come and go in the NBA, Michael Jordan’s story remains the most synonymous with what makes basketball great.
The Last Dance is a great look into the pressures of being Michael Jordan at that time, and it’s riveting stuff. “Catch the ball when I throw it to you. I threw it to you.” The classic series Unsolved Mysteries is getting a fresh coat of paint beginning July 1.

Cursed is a what-if story centred on the Excalibur-and-King-Arthur legend, spun in the direction of a young woman instead. Instead of a typical Arthurian story, this version is focused on the mythical Lady of the Lake. Are you looking for a little more slice-of-life goodness in your TV series?
