These ’80s flicks are streaming in August 2018

Oh, '80s fans! This summer is going to end with a bang instead of a whimper – at least on TV (where the 51-year-old in us all tends to habitate). Lately, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime have been quite generous toward us. (I must have watched Force 10 from Navarone a dozen times in July. Sure, it's not an '80s flick, but it has Harrison Ford and Carl Weathers!) But August is looking good too.

You gotta love that we get the full Bill & Ted, Robocop and Teen Wolf franchises next month. (No love for the Police Academy flicks?) Plus, if you're a fan of Kevin Smith's movies – granted, they're from the '90s and beyond but are full of '80s love – you'll be happy with what's to come next month too.

Here are the '80s offerings to enjoy in August on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime (which has the lion's share of the movies.) Keep in mind these are just the new arrivals; plenty of other '80s flicks will already be there.
