We're into August proper, and spoiler alert, there are some great movies that were added last week and available to stream right now on Stan. For a complete preview of everything that's coming to Stan in August, have a peek at this article here


It didn't arrive soon enough for our last article, but the fifth season premiere of Preacher actually occurred last Monday and there are now two episodes into the new season. The darkly comic series has really got itself a following, and the new fifth season - plenty of episodes to binge through now - means it's now the perfect time to start watching the series if you haven't already.

Movies, Documentaries:

Some great films have just been added to the Stan movie library.

If you're looking for something a bit more recent, then the impressively hyper and funny The Lego Movie should brighten up your day, even if everything is awesome already.

The perfect action movie that redefines the term "car chase" can be found in Australia's own Mad Max: Fury Road. Great visuals, great action and some great lines make this movie a must-watch. And while you're at it, maybe catch up on the original Mad Max - the film that made Hollywood take note of our local film industry (and launched Mel Gibson's career).

From one Aussie classic to another, if you still haven't watched the The Castle for some stranger, very strange reason, now is your chance and you better take it because, you know, it's the vibe of the thing.

Analyze This successfully combined the mob with comedy, and was so successful, it forced Hollywood to make a substandard sequel. Watch this (but maybe skip the sequel).

And finally, in the reality TV/documentary category, there's the second season of 60 Days In which sees the somewhat irresponsible premise of putting innocent members of the public in jail undercover to expose corruption and crime in the prison system. Interesting fact: this second series was filmed before the premiere of the first season, as the producers didn't think the undercover stuff would work once the show aired.
