What's New On Netflix In August? We've Got You Covered

We would never recommend you spend the last month of summer indoors watching movies. But, even the staunchest of beach bums need some air-conditioned couch time. And, Netflix is rolling out a slew of diverse titles starting August 1 for just that purpose. Get ready to cue up.
While he may be the last person you want to spend a night with in light of recent events, Justin Bieber's Believe is actually a perfect time capsule of the moment when Bieber was a gifted musical prodigy whose sunny disposition and strong work ethic actually made him endearing. Put in the context of his recent descent into hooliganism, the film is both sad and troubling to behold. It's like watching young Anakin Skywalker before he turns into Darth Vader (thankfully, the Biebs has yet to acquire a lightsaber).
If you haven't had a good binge-watch since you slaughtered Orange is The New Black in just an afternoon, Netflix has revived The Killing for its fourth and final season. Formerly an AMC property, the stirring series again follows the exploits of detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman), as they track a new killer while dealing with the aftermath of last season's shocking finale.
Lastly, there's a dark horse included among the assorted '90s-era offerings. The Cable Guy is a misunderstood, jet-black comedy starring Jim Carrey as an insane cable repairman who becomes obsessed with a customer (Matthew Broderick). Though the Ben Stiller-directed flick was dismissed as a complete misfire when it was released back in 1996, it has since taken on cult status thanks to scene-stealing cameos by now-famous comics and actors including Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Bob Odenkirk, Janeane Garofalo, and Leslie Mann.
