Geekflix – Top NETFLIX Picks For April 2018

April showers may bring May flowers but we are much more concerned with what is coming to Netflix. It’s time to look at the releases for the month of April and see what titles are necessary viewing.

Bad Boys (April 1st)

Bad Boys For Life

There has been talk for a while about a third film coming out in this franchise. Even if it doesn’t get release the original film isn’t the worst way to spend a rainy afternoon. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are cops who have to investigate a drug smuggling operation and the explosions which come as a result of doing their job.


Battlefield Earth (April 1st)

Battlefield Earth

Said to be one of the worst film ever made. It is. It really is. Don’t even have to apply a lot of thought into the deconstruction to find out how bad it is. Still, is you want to torture yourself with a bad movie, there is no worse way to do it. Unless you decide to watch The Emoji Movie.

Mortal Kombat (April 1st)

Mortal Kombat Christopher Lambert

One of the best video game adaptations ever made. Watch as Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, and Liu Kang fight in a tournament to the death to stop the forces of Outworld from getting the right to invade Earth. When it’s all said and done you’ll be saying “Get over here!”

Scarface (April 1st)

Al Pacino in Scarface

“Say hello to my little friend!” This iconic line is only the tip of the entertainment which comes from this classic Al Pacino film. Watch as Tony Montana goes from a refugee to one of the powerful men in the underworld. Unfortunately, his journey is not for the faint of heart.

Speed Racer (April 1st)

Speed Racer

One of the best live action adaptations ever made. The previous statement was not a joke. It is faithful to the source material, visually impressive and a lot of fun. Give it a chance. You might actually find yourself pleasantly surprised.

The Iron Giant (April 1st)

Iron Giant

This film is a gem. Not only as an animated feature but a film overall. If you haven’t taken the time to watch this film then you owe it to yourself to check it out. What? You were expecting me to write more? I can only beg and plead so much.

The Lost Boys (April 1st)

vampire-movie-80s-lost boys

Before there was Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, there was The Lost Boys. A film which proved using comic books to train against the forces of evil is a good idea. Also, where else are you going to find a film where Corey Feldman is a vampire hunter. Aside from the sequels to this film.

Despicable Me 3 (April 5th)

The third film in the trilogy which spawned the Minions. Though many don’t find this to be the best result, this film is still very entertaining. Watch as Gru meets up with his long lost twin brother and fights a villian who is stuck in the 80s.

Lost in Space: Season 1 (April 13th)

Lost in Space 2018 Netflix

The Netflix exclusive reboot of the classic science fiction television series will finally arrive. Even if it doesn’t live up to the hype it still will be better than the film adaptation which came out in the 90s. Let’s just hope they don’t over use the line, “Danger Will Robinson!”

Aggretsuko: Season 1 (April 20th)


The charming little red panda from the company which brought us Hello Kitty is your standard 20 something office worker. She is underappreciated, overworked, and easily angered bit of adorableness. Watch as she tries to keep her temper and try even harder the next day.
