Netflix Additions August Includes Practical Magic, Matrix Trilogy, and Other Nostalgic Faves

It’s almost August, and while summer is coming to an end we’ll always have Netflix. This month’s additions only have a few Netflix original highlights, but the familiar titles coming are sure to result in lots of movie nights and marathons.

While we’re still bummed about Sense8 leaving, it might be some comfort to see the Wachowski’s Matrix trilogy and Cloud Atlas added to streaming service. Summery selections include Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, and the first season of The Defenders which has been all over our social media the last few months. The controversial Death Note adaptation is also arriving, but I’ll be fast-forwarding straight to autumn with the arrival of The Addams Family and Practical Magic. 

Brace yourselves, some of these losses are going to hurt. We’re losing teen masterpieces and comfort movies, 10 Things I Hate About You and The Lizzie McGuire Movie, so hurry give those a goodbye watch while you still can. Holes and A Cinderella Story might help ease the pain and fill that wholesome teen movie gap in your heart, though! Don’t try to tell me you don’t remember how to hum the Holes theme song that played on Disney channel every hour.

In TV, we’re losing season of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, Hunter X Hunter, and Young Justice. In its place, it might be a good opportunity to see what the fuss about The Good Place is all about or check out the recent Michael Keaton/McDonalds film The Founder!
