(KUTV) - August brings a host of new titles to Netflix including the highly anticipated "Marvel's The Defenders," the third season of "Voltron: Legendary Defender" and a handful of classic films from the '90s.

The Addams Family

Released in 1991, "The Addams Family" featured the inspired casting of Anjelica Huston as Morticia Addams, Raul Julia as Gomez Addams, Christina Ricci as their daughter Wednesday Addams and Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester Addams. It's silly fun with a Gothic flourish, but there's nothing wrong with that.

The Matrix

1999's "The Matrix" changed the look of modern action films as it introduced an innovative use of modern cameras and old school effects. Sure, the story starts to go off the rails at the very end and the sequels (which are also coming to Netflix in August) weren't remotely as fun or as smart as they wanted to be, but Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are perfectly cast in this cyberpunk tale. Why this didn't pave the way for numerous cinematic William Gibson adaptations is beyond me.

Sleepy Hollow

"Sleepy Hollow" was also released in 1999 and found director Tim Burton working with Johnny Depp for just the third time. Burton's film strays a bit from its Washington Irving source material, but this campy horror film still provides a few chills to go along with its kookiness.

Voltron: Legendary Defender: Season 3 -- NETFLIX ORIGINAL

In the mid-'80s I was a devoted follower of "Voltron: Defender of the Universe." So, when I heard that Netflix was revisiting the series with "Voltron: Legendary Defender" I was excited and nervous to see what they'd do with the franchise. As much as I love the original, this new series is substantially better as the characters are better defined and Princess Allura is given an expanded role. Binge watch the first two seasons ASAP. (Arrives 8/4/17)

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later: Season 1 -- NETFLIX ORIGINAL

In 2001 "Wet Hot American Summer" was something of a commercial and critical failure but managed to build enough of a cult following that in 2015 Netflix made an 8-episode prequel called "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp." Netflix is returning to the scene of the crime with "Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later" with Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pine, Lake Bell, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler and much more (minus Bradley Cooper) returning to reprise their roles. (Arrives 8/4/17)

Marvel's The Defenders: Season 1 -- NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Marvel fans have waited impatiently for the moment when Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist team up as the Defenders to fight crime in New York City. I'm assuming you've already taken the time off. (Arrives 8/18/17)


Loosely based on Tsugumi Ohba's mana series, "Death Note" follows the exploits of a young man who uses a supernatural book to punish criminals. An act that doesn't go unnoticed. (Arrives 8/25/17)

DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge: Season 5 -- NETFLIX ORIGINAL

The continuing animated adventures of Hiccup and Toothless from the "How to Train Your Dragon" films. (Arrives 8/25/17)

Once Upon a Time: Season 6

The sixth season of ABC's popular fantasy "Once Upon a Time" follows the inhabitants of the town of Storybrooke, a place where characters from fairy tales are brought into the real world. (Arrives 8/25/17)
