Summertime = Movies. Well, on Netflix, anytime = movies...but we do see about a 20% increase in movie watching by our members in the US around Memorial Day weekend. This Friday, you'll be able to enjoy Adam Sandler's new movie, The Do Over. It's our second Sandler comedy, starring him and David Spade as old friends who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: wiping the slate clean by faking their deaths and it's available exclusively on Netflix this Friday all around the world.

Sci-fi adventure classics Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, Jurassic Park 3 (June 1)
Academy Award Best Picture winner, Spotlight (June 22), the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered long-standing child abuse at the Catholic Archdiocese, featuring Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams.
Sundance hit and Netflix Original film The Fundamentals of Caring (June 24), follows Paul Rudd playing Ben, a writer-turned-caregiver, and his charge, a foul-mouthed British teen with muscular dystrophy played by Craig Roberts, as they take an impromptu road trip.

July:
The Big Short (July 6) with Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale, brings to life the collapse of the U.S. mortgage bubble in an unforgettable and amazingly entertaining way.
Brahman Naman (July 7), another Netflix Original film, brings the ribaldry of American Pie and takes it to India in the 1980s.
Tallulah (July 29), another Sundance breakout and Netflix Original, unites Allison Janney and Ellen Page, in the story of a dissatisfied Beverly Hills housewife and the babysitter she hires.
Also arriving in July for the first time are such classic family favorite franchises such as Back to The Future & Lethal Weapon.

As a Canadian Netflix subscriber I likely won't get to enjoy most of these new films. (Not on Netflix anyway.)

The entertainment industry needs to stop competing with itself and allow titles to be licensed globally. This type of change would result in happier consumers and more revenue. Far too often consumers get frustrated and resort to piracy to watch the content that they want.

As a Canadian content watcher, I know I get fed-up. I also go out of the way to notify the CRTC of which content is ridiculously hard to obtain and why the old cable method needs to stop being the only choice for all content in Canada.
