The month might have just kicked off, but we’ve already got quite the list going! If you’re looking for the best shows and movies to stream in Canada this July, then look no further. We’re talking huge titles, we’re talking cult classics, and we’re talking everything in between.
Here are the best shows and movies to stream in Canada this July.
Stranger Things (July 1st)
Of course, it’s only fitting to start this list off with Stranger Things. The final episodes of Season 4 came out to kick off the month, and boy howdy, did they live up to expectations. Now we’re back to waiting around for the next (and potentially final for the cast) season!
The Gray Man (July 22nd)
There are two things going for this upcoming release. First, it was directed by the Russo brothers (of Avengers fame). And to boot, it’s got Ryan Gosling in it, who’s really been turning heads with images from the new Barbie movie.
Under the Banner of Heaven (New Episodes Weekly)
Thank goodness for the more adult-oriented Star lineup, and thank goodness it’s got FX shows. This tense drama/mystery follows a detective (Andrew Garfield) as he falls into a rabbit hole of an off-the-rocker Mormon family.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie (July 12th)
Extremely hot take- Bob’s Burgers will go down alongside The Simpsons as one of the greatest animated shows of all time. And just like The Simpsons, the foray into an actual, honest to goodness feature film has been met with both critic and audience approval.
Only Murders in the Building (New Episodes Weekly)
With season 2 kicking off at the end of June, now’s a great time to watch this very funny series starring Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short. Full disclosure- we just love to see Martin Short in anything, and if you haven’t seen him as Jiminy Glick then we recommend that too.
No Time To Die (Now Streaming)
It’s the end of the Daniel Craig era! This sprawling send-off is a must-watch for fans of the series, or if you’re just ready to settle into a full night of spy-themed fun.
Westworld (New Episodes Weekly)
After a two year long wait, HBO favourite Westworld is back for another season. Now 7 years after the events of Season 3, the new batch of episodes explores a whole new park, focusing on life in the American mafia during the 1920s and 30s.
Last Night in Soho (July 22nd)
The latest project from acclaimed director Edgar Wright got some mixed reviews, but the cinematography alone should be enough to land it on your list. Anya Taylor-Joy plays an aspiring fashion designer, who becomes trapped in London’s West End during the Swingin’ Sixties. Groovy, baby!
Tokyo Story (Now Streaming)
Quite literally referred to as one of the greatest movie ever made, Tokyo Story is a must-see for anyone who claims to be a ‘film buff’ at parties. Heck, even if you aren’t, this is still more than worth the few hours out of your life.
Lemon (July 6th)
This is like a precursor for two now-essential names. You’ve got Brett Gelman (Murray in Stranger Things) in the lead role, while Janicza Bravo (the director of Zola) is behind the camera. It’s twisted, it’s absurd, and it’s perfect to watch if you’re looking for something off the beaten path.
Strawberry Mansion (Now Streaming)
Want something just plain weird? This is our pick. Following a ‘dream auditor’ in a dystopic future, this movie’s premise allows it to present some truly wild scenes without blinking an eye. Chances are, if you liked Eternal Sunshine, you’ll like this.
Memories of Murder (Now Streaming)
Bong Joon-Ho became a household name with Parasite, but he’s got quite a bit in the archives for fans to return to. One of the best of them? This crime-thriller focusing on Korea’s first-ever documented case of a serial killer.
There you have it! Our list of the best shows and movies to stream in Canada this month. Hopefully we’ve got enough variety in there for you!
