With heat indexes through the roof, it's safe to say that Netflix and chill season is officially all year-round. When it's too hot to justify setting foot outside the comfort of your air conditioning, Netflix is always there for you. In August 2019, there are plenty of movies and TV shows on the streaming platform. Whether you love a rom-com, a comedy, documentaries, crime thrillers, prestige drama, Disney movies old and new, or horror movies, there's something for everyone streaming on Netflix. 

While we can understand wanting to watch Beyoncé's Homecoming or blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War and the Oscar-nominated Black Panther and Coco for the millionth time, but why not try something new?  Writer-director Barry Jenkins' 2017 Best Picture Oscar winner and queer coming-of-age drama, Moonlight, is streaming, along with hits from last year like Burning, Roma, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse. There's also some lighter comedy fare, if that's your preferred genre, available to stream on Netflix, including Wine Country and The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience. A number of beloved Netflix originals, like To All The Boys I've Loved Before and Always Be My Maybe, can be found on the streaming giant, as well. And for the sci-fi heads, there are multiple Star Wars movies streaming on Netflix, so you can get your genre fix. What are you waiting for? When you've run out of TV shows to binge-watch, here are the best movies on Netflix right now.
