Get ready for The Get Down

Share this story

The availability of movies and TV shows on streaming services is a veritable merry-go-round these days, with so many titles coming and going that it’s hard to keep things straight. So this month, I’m going to take more of a simplified approach.

On August 12th, the first part of Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down is debuting on Netflix. It doesn’t matter whether you liked The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge!, or Strictly Ballroom; this is a show that you will simply need to watch. It's partially because The Get Down is one of the most expensive television shows ever produced. It's also because the show's production struggles have already become legendary. But mostly it’s because of that awe-inspiring trailer.

(When you’re done with that, you’ll also be able to watch The Fast and the Furious and Tokyo Drift, but those are going to give you a really different vibe.)

Amazon Prime Video, on the other hand, is just piling up so many cinematic classics that the service is becoming a no-brainer for movie fans. Inside Llewyn Davis? Check. A Clockwork Orange? Check. The Matrix? Check. Its two sequels? Check and check. (Sorry.)

"But Bryan," I hear you saying. "What if I’m a really big Al Pacino fan and want to watch a ton of his movies?" Well that’s when it’s time to switch over to HBO Now — because Scarface, Dog Day Afternoon, and Carlito’s Way are all coming to the service next month. If for some reason you are still not yet entertained by what’s coming, you can check out the full streaming lineups below.
