Now that summer has become too hot to handle, it’s officially time to stay inside and stream something cool. Lucky for you, there are some epic additions coming to Netflix’s lineup in August, so you can update your watch-list in time for the heat wave.  The new releases for the month offer classics like Steel Magnolias, new seasons of The Good Place and Ozark, award-winning dramas No Country For Old Men and Million Dollar Baby, and a ton of Netflix original docu-series.

Employee Picks

Of course, Batman Begins is my top pick.  Christopher Nolan’s first of three Batman films is a must (re)watch.   Another that slipped by me this year was Hostiles, staring Christian Bale……hmmm coincidence? I  wonder if he used his Batman voice in this movie too? – Sean

“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.”
“The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.”
“You know I love you more than my luggage.”
“Don’t try to get on my good side, I no longer have one.”
Steel Magnolias – hands down, no contest. It’s one of the most quotable movies of all time ever. – Abbie
