Hot picks on Neflix this August

Netflix, worth the price for Bloodline alone, has some hot choices this month that makes its $8 a month price totally ten-buck-worthy.

 Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp (2015)
I haven’t seen this prequel to literal camp classic Wet Hot American Summer, but this 6-episode series is a good bet for something to watch indoors this month. Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Molly Shannon, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Meloni, David Hyde Pierce and Janeane Garofalo are back. (Available July 31.)

Mission Impossible (1996)
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to enjoy Brian DePalmas flawless heist scene in the first Mission Impossible film to get excited about the well-reviewed Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, in theaters July 31. Mission number two, rally for Tom Cruise as if you have no idea about Scientology, which might prove to be…well, you know. (Available now.)

Two Days, One Night (2014)
What could be hotter than August 2015? Perhaps Marion Cotillard. In Two Days, One Night, she plays a young Belgian mother who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job. (Available August 16.)

Man On Wire (2008)
Robert Zemekis’ (Flight, Forrest Gump Back To The Future) upcoming 3D film, The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt should have our full attention in theaters October 2. Before that lands, check out the 2008 Oscar winner for Best Documentary that showcases the same story — tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974. (Available now.)
Seeking A Friend For The End of the World (2012)
If the world was ending, you could do much worse than spending your final days with Keira Knightley and Steve Carrell. This is not worth your final two hours on earth of course, but it’s pleasantly worth your time if you’re looking for something simple to watch on TV while folding laundry. (Available Aug 16.)
