Worth Streaming? Tomorrowland and Terminator Genisys Drop This Week on Netflix

These films are coming to Netflix’s DVD service this week. What’s worth catching?

Terminator Genisys

The Breakdown: The filmmakers try to reboot the Terminator franchise through a tricky time travel mechanism, a la Star Trek. Despite Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) putting in a good enough effort, the film basically fails to impress at every turn. The story gets too convoluted, the villain is ho hum, and the resolution left me looking for the exit sign in the theater.

Worth Streaming? All of the big Terminator fans likely already caught this flick in its theatrical debut. What’s more, the pre-announced sequels have, for at least the time being, been shelved. So if you miss seeing Arnold in one of his signature roles, you might wanna sit back and catch this. Otherwise, find something else.

Our Score: C+

Rotten Tomatoes: 25% | IMDB: 6.7 | Metacritic: 38

Tomorrowland

The Breakdown: George Clooney stars alongside some entertaining kids in a sci fi romp for the family. Hugh Laurie is the bad guy here and leads a cast of bad guys who mostly just go boom. The violence is cartoony, but the overall film wavers in tone and pacing, sometimes leaving you breathless and other times leaving you tapping your foot. The final resolution of the film leaves you shrugging your shoulders, but you’ll be glad you saw it for the original concept, at least.

Worth Streaming? If you’ve got young ones at home and didn’t fork over the money to see this movie in theaters, it’ll make for an entertaining evening watching movies together. Otherwise, there isn’t much here for the childless, the hipsters, or for the Netflix-and-chill crowd.

Our Score: B-

Rotten Tomatoes: 50% | IMDB: 6.5 | Metacritic: 60

What I’ll Be Watching: Mr. Holmes

I love Ian McKellan and his turn as an aged Sherlock Holmes had the kind of buzz going for it that made me aware of the film, if not ready to run out and drop ten bucks on it. But I’ll be glad to sit back and catch this later in the week, hoping the film has all of the cerebral depth that the premise seems to entice.

Rotten Tomatoes: 87% | IMDB: 7.1 | Metacritic: 67

Otherwise available: Dope, an indie comedy favorite; The Gallows, a little-hyped film in a genre I don’t watch a lot of.

    • Yeahhhhhh so when I wrote this post, I thought that was what my source was detailing (streaming dates). Turns out I was wrong. So I updated the post content but didn’t want to update the headline because WordPress bases site links off of the title and I had already shared to several sites. My apologies! Definitely wasn’t trying to make a click-bait headline.
