Wet Hot American Summer is a completely bonkers summer camp movie starring a hefty group of big-name comedy geniuses; Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and more. While it will always be hilarious, it won’t always be around – be sure to download from Netflix before it disappears.

4. American Graffiti

George Lucas’ classic film, American Graffitistars the likes of Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss and Harrison Ford. Following one day of teenage adventure in the “rock-and-roll culture” era, it was even deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” enough for federal preservation in the National Film Registry.

5. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Nothing says summer like adventures around the world and spending quality time with your best friends. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a warm and uplifting, yet sometimes dramatic, journey of friendship (and pants). No matter your age or state-of-mind, this is a feel-good movie you’ll want to record before it leaves Netflix.

6. Adventureland

Starring the king of awkward himself (Jesse Eisenberg), this flick is the ultimate ode to any summer job you ever got stuck with in high school/college. Adventureland is a friendly, coming-of-age type of comedy that certainly won’t last on Netflix forever.

What’s New to Watch on Netflix: July 2016

While we may still be in mourning from Netflix‘s latest round of content cuts, there are things to be thankful for. In this case, that means a fresh batch of movies and TV shows to dive into (even if it is for a limited time…).

This July, we have a number of higher-profile films and a handful of new series seasons available starting the first of the month. Check out some of the top movies and shows new to Netflix in July, 2016 – you can watch and save them all with Replay Video Capture!

Science-fiction meets adventure meets comedy in the classic 1980’s trilogy, Back to the Future. If you’re into time travel, quirky scientists and amazing 80’s references, you definitely want to get your hands on this series.

2. The Lovely Bones

Based on the best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones is a heartbreaking but beautiful story of a young girl watching over her family from beyond. Bring tissues!

3. Turner and Hooch

Tom Hanks plays Turner, a by-the-books kind of cop, while Hooch is a slobbery and chaotic, yet lovable dog. When the two come together in Turner and Hooch, you know it’ll be a mess.

4. Mean Girls

GIF via dude-itz-liz.tumblr.com

Everyone loves a mean girl, right? Mean Girls is an insanely quotable teen comedy, starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, where the Plastics rule.

5. Lethal Weapon (1-4)

GIF via warnerbrosentertainment.tumblr.com

Some of Danny Glover’s finest moments come from the Lethal Weapon movie franchise. Two tough-as-nails L.A.P.D officers are partnered up to do some good – one of them a seasoned cop and the other a suicidal maniac.

6. Cheaper by the Dozen

GIF via wifflegif.tumblr.com

Comedy genius Steve Martin stars in Cheaper by the Dozen, a movie about (you guessed it) a family with 12 kids. With an incredibly full house and ambitious minds sparking, there’s tension, laughter and a few heartfelt moments.

7. Todd Margaret (Season 3)

GIF via officerserpico.tumblr.com

David Cross plays the increasingly unlucky and awkward Todd Margaret, a man who has moved to London for a job he knows nothing about. Any fan of Arrested Development won’t want to miss this one!

8. Catwoman

There have been a few versions of Catwoman over the years, but this time it’s Halle Berry’s turn. The 2004 movie follows the classic DC Comics storyline of the mild-mannered employee by day, superhero by night. Not great, but entertaining.

The Best Worst Movies to Stream & Record Now

Some movies are amazingly brilliant, and some are so amazingly bad that it’s a wonder how they were ever conceptualized. Today, we’d like to honor some of those horrible, yet somehow captivating, films available online.

You can stream all of the terrible/awesome movies your heart can handle straight from your browser, then use Replay Video Capture to keep them forever. To get started, just fire up the software, start playing your top picks on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, and start recording.

Take a look at some of our favorite worst movies to stream and save on Netflix right now:

1. Gigli

If you’ve ever wanted to see J. Lo pretend to be a “fatally gorgeous” gangster, please record and save this movie from Netflix. Ben Affleck (Gigli) also stars in this quintessentially awful/amazing movie from the early 2000’s, in which a kidnapping goes terribly awry. Sloppy, bizarre and yet somehow amazing.

2. Killer Mermaid

Somewhat creepy and terribly written, this flick is perfect for you horror lovers – if you want to laugh rather than being scared. The general plot line involves two American women on a vacation in the Mediterranean, where they stumble upon the lair of (you guessed it) a killer mermaid. This film is available to stream on Netflix, and definitely worth it for your next movie night.

3. Left Behind

Nicolas Cage is reason enough to watch and save this Armageddon based masterpiece from Netflix. In Left Behind, a handful of survivors are “left behind” after millions vanish; the world is plunged into chaos. And then there was Nic Cage.

4. John Dies at the End

Comedy meets terror in this dark flick on Netflix. A new drug, referred to as Soy Sauce, promises an out-of-body experience like no other. People are scrambling for it, but there are (obviously) consequences. We won’t give you any other spoilers — this movie is perfect for livening up a boring evening.

5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

This movie is actually pretty good if you’re into martial arts flicks, though still laughable compared to the original. Jason Scott Lee stars as a warlord hell-bent on stealing a sword from the good guys (and martial arts masters). Get a hold of this one on Netflix before your next kung fu binge!

The State of Online TV Streaming: Today’s Top Players

Online streaming has rapidly become the must-have accessory in this big, digital world of ours. People far and wide are cutting the cable cord and adopting streaming services to get their fix of sitcoms and late-night movies, either through the computer or channeled directly to the television set.

It was shared in Statista that last year alone “seventy-six percent of American households reported having a video-on-demand subscription,” and that percentage is only growing as the convenience factor is too tempting to pass up.

With access to nearly any television show, documentary, classic film or big time Hollywood flick, it’s really no wonder that so many are drawn to the broad, always-on collection. If you have decent Wi-Fi and a connected device, you’ve got access to it all.

Top Players

As it’s pretty easily assumed, the biggest names in online streaming subscriptions today are Netflix and Amazon, with the Hulu Package holding up third place. Some families subscribe to all three, but most have just one of the services: Netflix. In fact, Netflix is in 36% of all American TV households, while Amazon is in 13% and Hulu Plus is in 6.5%, according to Nielsen.

Netflix

Just this summer, Netflix surpassed 65 million subscribers with its $8/month service, and expanded its reach internationally, grounding its roots as the world’s most popular streaming service. With the creation of its Netflix Originals, such as “Orange is the New Black,” “Daredevil” and “House of Cards,” along with close to 7,000 other titles, consumers are loving the high-quality video content within a binge watching-enabled platform.

Amazon

At 40 million subscribers, some arguably coming by association with it’s Prime Package, Amazon ranks second on the list of most-used streaming subscriptions. While they may not have as many attractive titles in their collection, they do have the pull of their popular Prime plan that offers unlimited video streaming in addition to free 2-day shipping in their online marketplace for $99/year.

Learn how to record movies and shows from Amazon.

Hulu

Hulu lags behind with 9 million subscribers, though they experienced a generous percentage of growth from 2014 to 2015. With a recent partnership with Showtime, along with the extensive collection of media, they hope to expand their customer base even more rapidly.

Nicholas Cage in National Treasure Streaming on Netflix April 2015

National Treasure (2004)

This Nicolas Cage-led US history thriller stands alone. The perfect mix of unbelievable action and entertaining mystery, this family-friendly PG romp somehow makes the Founding Fathers seem undeniably interesting.

 

Record Simon Pegg's Hot Fuzz Streaming On Netflix This April

Hot Fuzz (2007)

Capture Russel Crowe in Noah Streaming on Netflix April 2015

Noah (2014)

Director Darren Aaronofsky’s latest project – a Bible Epic starring Russel Crowe, Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly. Fun fact: The scenes on the Arc are shot on a real Arc, which they built for the film and which survived Hurricane Sandy.

 

Stream The Babadook on Netflix

The Babadook (2014)

Feeling like getting scared? This new school horror film doesn’t rely on gimmicks, handheld camera work or possession themes for a change. With a genuine plot surrounding a single mother and her son, this is a chilling movie… perfect before bed (not really).

 

Marvel's Daredevil now streaming on Netflix

Marvel’s Daredevil (season 1)

Another huge TV project from Marvel. Another Netflix original show. Don’t miss it. From the comic book pages to streaming on-demand, the story of a blind lawyer turned crime-fighter is much grittier than expected, which we love!

 

Capture Streaming Sons of Anarchy on Netflix April 2015

Sons Of Anarchy (season 7)

Motorcycles, Johnny Law, and typical gang mayhem awaits. The divisive biker sudo-period-drama’s last chapter is now streaming. Join the Sons as they ride off into the sunset of their final season.

Netflix Conflix: Goodbye, February

As the seasons change, so do the Netflix streaming options. And like the months before, March is blooming up fast. So dig into that queue and put these soon-to-be-removed movies on the list. Simply set up a time to record with your Replay Video Capture and have all of the streaming control you’d like with these gems well past February. Here are our favorites to say bye-bye from Netflix and hello with Applian recording software:

 

Brokedown Palace

A harrowing travel story about two young friends who find themselves wrongfully imprisoned in a Thai prison for smuggling drugs into Hong Kong. A very young Kate Beckinsale and Claire Danes play the main characters, with Bill Pullman as their American lawyer to free them from 33 years of imprisonment. An interesting film about justice and the bonds of friendship, it’s definitely worth seeing if you’ve never before.

 

Lords of Dogtown

Based on the true story of the beginnings of skateboarding in grimy Venice, California circa 1970’s; this fictionalization of the z-boys and the Zephyr skate team is the perfect time-machine to a seedy but exciting place in the sports’ legacy. Supreme acting performances by Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch, and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, it’s an entertaining ride with an awesome soundtrack.

Swiss Family Robinson

One of the classic Disney family films that ages well. About a family left stranded on a wild island, they fend for themselves. It features imaginative treehouses, frightening pirates, and a parade of exotic animals. The cinematography doesn’t disappoint some fifty years later and the scenic backdrop almost makes you wish you too were stranded there, perfectly nostalgic.

 

The Graduate

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me? Aren’t you?” Relive the awkwardness of Dustin Hoffman’s breakout role as Benjamin Braddock, the bewildered college student lured in by his girlfriend’s mother, played by the beautiful Anne Bancroft. It’s worth having in the library as a perfect time capsule.

 

Legends of the Fall

Okay, so technically this isn’t leaving Netflix until the very end of March, but it’s too good to not want to keep in your archives. Brad Pitt is more than a pretty face as the tough and brooding Tristan Ludow, alongside the brilliant Antony Hopkins as his father, and Aiden Quinn and Henry Thomas as the other Ludow brothers. Set in the rural America of the 1900s, this is a passionate movie about family, loss, war, and ultimately love.

Just released this month, Marco Polo is the ambitious new original content series from Netflix that centers around the famed explorer.

By recording it with Applian products, you can make sure to see it in it’s full glory on a bigger screen, rather than a laptop.

Hannibal
Get it on Amazon Prime here and learn how to record with Replay Video Capture

With the second season premiering in 2014, this graphic and suspense-filled show is exactly what a murder thriller is all about. Taking a serial approach to the well known Thomas Harris books, this creepy show has it’s own cult following with amazing actors and a plot that twists and turns through every gruesome act.  

Broad City
Stream it on Comedy Central here and learn how to record with Replay Video Capture

One of the new bright spots in TV comedy, the witty 20-something odd couple, who aren’t exactly likable, but hilariously fun to watch, star in Broad City and focuses on the struggling life in New York City. These two women bring friendship, awkwardness and cultural trends into an anti-glamour that’s both perfectly refreshing and pitch perfect.

BroadCity

The Leftovers
Stream it on HBO Go and learn how to record it with Replay Video Capture

This outwardly somber drama about the cataclysmic mysterious disappearance of 140 million people is an introspective character exploration in the guise of political and religious themes. Based on the best selling book by Tom Perrotta, the series asks a deeper question of meaning and loss. Don’t worry, it is worth the unanswered questions for the sake of the beautifully written storyline and actor’s performances.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
Stream it on Crackle here and learn how to capture with Replay Media Catcher

Digging into their respective motivations, career stories, and always with genuine conversational humor, these short episodes are worth archiving for rainy day laughs.

Netflix Conflix: Holiday Edition

Can’t decide what to watch and record? We’re here to the rescue! Since it is the “most wonderful time of the year”, there’s no better time than now to get into the holiday spirit. On this edition of “Netflix Conflix” we’ve rounded up some of the merrier picks that Netflix is currently offering through streaming that you should record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online – plus, you can keep them in your arsenal for next season! Need help recording from Netflix? Just watch this helpful tutorial:

 

Scrooged: If you’re like us, then anything with Bill Murray is a winner. This 80s classic is the reinterpretation of “A Christmas Carol”, but with more snark and less Victorian London scenery. Not only is it a touching feel-good holiday film, but it is downright funny, thanks to Mr. Murray and his signature brand of effervescent charm.


White Christmas: Looking for a fluffy holiday musical that even grandma can love (or loves to re-watch)? Search no further. The insanely likable Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye duo give this classic Christmas tale a fun feel. You’ll be singing and dancing all evening, just hoping for more snow.


Nightmare Before Christmas: This Tim Burton family film is gorgeously unique and definitely has it’s place in the Holiday-Film-Hall-of-Fame (if there were one). Additionally filled with catchy tunes about the dreaded Christmas time and the revered Halloween, it’s the perfect transition from the scary to the sweet with emo-perfect execution.


The Fitzgerald Family Christmas: Written and directed by Ed Burns, this is a recent (2012) holiday drama that profiles a broken family trying to find that Christmas spirit. A fantastic ensemble cast and authentic feel make this film about family dynamics and drama one to distract you from your own sibling chaos this year.

 

A Saturday Night Live Christmas: Okay, so this one is technically not a Netflix streaming option, but thankfully you have Replay Video Catcher and can also get in on all of the Hulu action too! The 40-year-old TV institution compiled it’s best holiday-related sketches into one hilarious giant “show”. Relive all the funny and relish in performances from cast members past.

Netflix Conflix: Happy Halloween

Can’t decide what to watch and record? We’re here to the rescue! There’s no better time all year than the week of Halloween (yes, we consider it a week-long holiday) to watch horror films. On this edition of “Netflix Conflix” we’ve rounded up some of the scary picks that Netflix is currently offering through streaming that you should record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online – plus, you can keep them in your arsenal for next Halloween! Need help recording from Netflix? Just watch this helpful tutorial:


Fright Night
: Time has done this film well. This is the movie that re-imagined vampires for a whole generation, in fact, a generation that re-created the vampire into your worst Twilight-related nightmare. Regardless, Fright Night still provides something fun for everyone and we would also recommend the Colin Ferrel re-boot from 2011 that’s shockingly on-point with the classic.

 

Detention: This is a horror film with serious ADD. But its fast-paced wit makes it nervously enjoyable. Chalk-full of 90s / 00s pop culture references that keep it funny and on the comedy-side of things. No doubt, in a few years, this will be a cult hit. If you “get it” then you’ll enjoy the film — not a horror film for everyone and prepare yourself for a story that jumps all over the place.

The StuffIf you want something straight-up funny, make sure you keep The Stuff around for genuine giggles. The special effects are campy as they try to make infesting goo seem scary. (Hint: it’s not) But the acting is surprisingly great and there’s enough 80s ridiculousness to have a delightful viewing — you just might want to choose something other than yogurt, ice cream, or whipped cream to eat while watching.


All The Boys Love Mandy LaneThis movie isn’t particularly scary. But it’s uniquely suspenseful. The characters are heightened stereotypes and Amber Heard is (as always) pretty darn good-looking, but there’s something that keeps it all entertaining. In typical slasher-flick style, this group of teenagers is sex-crazy and totally over-the-top. Expect gore and an interesting twist at the end.


Hellraiser:
Since this was the first sighting of Pinhead, and created a franchise that lasts nine movies and almost three decades, it’s worth getting a look at just why this created such a stir. Sure, it’s got the effects of your typical 80s horror movie, but Hellraiser does an astonishing job with makeup tricks and in-camera effects that make it worth watching. Also, if you don’t think the zombie-corpse crawling across the floor isn’t freaky, then we don’t know what is.
