    The month might kick off with a day full of deliberate information and unintentionally cruel pranks, but April has plenty to offer on Netflix as well. In addition to a swell of original new films and shows, even by Netflix’s standards, the service will be awash in notable new releases, from modern cult classics to some fan-adored features to the unbridled camp triumph that is 1995’s Mortal Kombat. As always, there’s something for everybody in the midst of Netflix’s upcoming slate.

    Take a look at our recommendations, and just remember: if none of this is working for you, then hey, the whole first season of The Good Place is still available to watch, or watch again.

    WATCH ASAP

    Dude (Netflix Original Movie) – April 20th: Olivia Milch’s film about a quartet of high school friends on the cusp of their oncoming futures is based on what was once a Blacklist script, and could well be the kind of diversion that seems best suited to Netflix’s current release model.

    Kodachrome (Netflix Original Movie) – April 20th: A popular entry at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Mark Raso’s road money follows Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis as an estranged father and son who look to reconnect on a trip to visit the last development plant for the titular, now-outmoded film stock.
