As the last month of the summer begins, Netflix adds over 100 movies and shows to their lineup. 

The streaming service increases its already-impressive lineup of crime documentaries with World’s Most Wanted, focusing on the most wanted criminals in the world.

Also highlighted is the timely documentary, Immigration Nation, which debuts Aug. 3 and features an in-depth look at America’s immigration system. 

On the lighter side, summer family movie nights can include The Addams Family, Dennis the Menace, Jurassic Park and Mr. Peabody and Sherman. For anime fans, all four seasons of The Legend of Korra, the follow-up series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, also comes to Netflix in August.
