It’s hard to believe that summer is already more than halfway finished and before we know it will be Halloween and snowing. As this month comes to a close, everyone’s favorite steaming service will be saying goodbye to some TV shows and movies, but don’t fear, because there are some great options coming in the month of August that will make up for these losses. These are the highlights that you’ll be able to indulge in when it’s too hot to go out or you’re feeling sad that summer is almost over.
The Fast and the Furious (And Tokyo Drift)
Starring the late, beloved Paul Walker, come August, you’ll be able to indulge in The Fast and the Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. If you’re up for action, high-speed races and a bit of drama then you’ll be pleased to spend a few hours of your life on this come next month.
Pay It Forward
This classic 2000 movie starring Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt is not only heartwarming, but it’s great cinema as well. The movie follows the story of a teacher who gives his students an assignment on how they can make the world a better place. You’ve probably heard the phrase “pay it forward” as in, do something nice for someone who does something nice for you, and that’s the whole premise of this movie. I think you’ll want to watch this more than once.
Final Destination 3
This series of movies are sort of a ridiculous premise, but they’re fun and interesting to watch. Not all sequels are great, but Final Destination does a pretty good job of making each new movie an interesting enough plot to standalone. These movies follow some friends who are trying to cheat death and it will definitely give you something to think about, if nothing else.
The Little Prince
This is great just out of sheer nostalgia. Most of us read The Little Prince, a book that came out in the 40s, as children, and this movie is beautifully done and will take you back to a simpler time. Whether you have kids or not, indulge in your inner child and watch this movie when it airs on Netflix August 5.
This movie is dramatic and a little creepy, technically categorized as horror. Newlyweds move into a new home and have no idea their landlord is spying on them; I think you can guess with how many cameras. It’s an interesting movie that got pretty good reviews when it came out, so if you haven’t seen it already, August is your chance.
These are not your only new Netflix Options come August, as there are dozens more, and you can find the rest of the movies Netflix will release next month here.
