There's an absolute ton of new movies and shows coming to Netflix in September, and the list includes some absolutely brilliant movies in all kinds of genres. In addition to a raft of new shows and Netflix originals, there's a ton of classic movies coming to the streamer too. The full list is below, but I've saved you some time by spotting four absolute must-watch movies on the best streaming service that I think you'll love.

1. Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (September 1)

If you haven't seen Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, drop everything and watch it when it's available on September 1. And if you have seen Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, drop everything and watch it when it's available on September 1. The stop-motion superheroes at Aardman animation deliver a perfectly paced blend of slapstick and super-sharp pun-packed dialogue that's very funny but also rather touching too. It's one of the best animated films you'll ever see.

2. Stand By Me (September 1)

Based on the Stephen King short story of the same name, this is a beautiful coming of age movie with 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and 94% from viewers. As Sheila Benson wrote in the Los Angeles Times: "it stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny, like its heroes themselves -- a bit gamy around the edges, perhaps, but pure and fine clear through. It's one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed."

3. Crank (September 3)

Crank is not a good film... It's a brilliant film (got you)! Crank is essentially Speed but with Jason Statham's endocrine system instead of a bomb on a bus. If the LA hitman's adrenalin levels drop below a certain level, he'll die from a Chinese death serum. A Chinese death serum! That means in order to stay alive he has to keep the adrenalin pumping in ever more ridiculous ways including having sex in public, fighting tons of people and drinking more Red Bull than is strictly necessary. It's deeply silly and that's what makes it so entertaining. This is an unapologetic, high-octane action fun.

4. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (September 5)

Comedy films can be hit or miss, but Anchorman is just hit after hit after hit. Don't let its relatively low Rotten Tomatoes rating fool you, this is from the same kind of place as the Airplane! and Naked Gun movies – and if you approach it in that vein it's bustlingly hilarious. Will Ferrell's clueless newsman is one of the great comic creations, and as the late, great Roger Ebert wrote in his review of the film it isn't just funny and silly: "it has a kind of sweetness to it." Packed with quotable lines and featuring some truly inspired set pieces it's tons of fun.
