Philadelphians, you're going to want to carve out some time this August to binge-watch the first five "Rocky" movies. 

The boxing saga is practically required viewing in the City of Brotherly Love and if it's been a while since you've seen the films, then now's the perfect time to get reacquainted with Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa. You can binge-watch on Netflix starting Aug. 1.

The movie marathon takes nine hours and four minutes, but best to add in time for breaks and buffering. You know you're going to start craving a cheesesteak at some point.

As for other beloved titles to watch next month, check out "Now and Then," "The House Bunny" and "Gangs of New York." 

All the '90s kids will love "Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling" and "Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus." The classic rom-coms "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Groundhog Day" are also good picks for nostalgia.

New seasons of "GLOW," "Derry Girls," "Mindhunter" and "Jane the Virgin" are available, too.
