Do you recall the year 1986 (MCMLXXXVI as it’s less commonly known)? The Mets won the World Series, Hands Across America stretched coast to coast, and the niche sport of homoerotic volleyball was thrust into the mainstream. Relive those tanned, sweaty glory days with the new batch of streaming titles on Netflix. Of course Top Gun heads the list, starring Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, and oh what the heck, let’s mention Tom Skeritt too. But ’86 is also represented by another high-profile release: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. John Hughes’ coming of age comedy stars Matthew Broderick in his most famous role as a highly creative loafer. Other notable titles now on Netflix streaming include Nacho Libre; Tremors; Species; and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
