Queer eye

The fourth season of "Queer Eye" premieres on Netflix on July 19.

While classics like “Silence of the Lambs,” “Wedding Crashers” and “The Matrix” have left Netflix as of July 1, the media giant has plenty of series and films arriving within the month. Although you might’ve already marathoned “Stranger Things 3” or 1980’s “Caddyshack,” here are seven TV series and films to binge watch this July. 

1. “Smart People” — 2008

When it comes out: July 12

Genre: Indie

 Ellen Page and Dennis Quaide star in this 2008 comedy-drama about a selfish professor who wants to be involved in his children’s lives again. If nothing else, “Smart People” has a distinct soundtrack, featuring tracks produced by Nuno Bettencourt and songs by the “Baby Animals.” 


2. “The Break-Up” — 2006

When it comes out: July 16

Genre: Rom-com 

Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are quite the dynamic duo in this 2000s romantic comedy. Although “The Break-Up” is definitely a light-hearted chick-flick, not to be taken too seriously, it’s a fine movie to watch for a night in.

3. “Inglourious Basterds” — 2009

When it comes out: July 22

Genre: Action-drama

Although this film is over two hours in length, director Quentin Tarantino keeps viewers on their feet in this gripping war drama with Brad Pitt and Diane Kruger. “Inglourious Basterds” will have you saying “arrivederci” to any existing boredom and “buongiorno” to explosions, fire and other violent scenes.

Whether or not you’ve heard of the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal, “The Great Hack” will break it down for you. Netflix invites viewers to see “how a data company named Cambridge Analytica came to symbolize the dark side of social media” in light of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.


4. “Queer Eye: Season 4” — 2019

When it comes out: July 19

 This season of “Queer Eye” has lots in store for fans, from Jonathan Van Ness visiting his old high school to the Fab Five making over a man who’s never spoken “to gay person before.” “Try not to cry,” Van Ness says in the trailer. “Try not to lose it.”

Season 7 is the final season of “Orange is the New Black” and will bring the show of six years to a close, for better or worse. According to the trailer, this season should see protagonist Piper Chapman adjusting to civilian life, while the rest of the gang longs for justice.
