New on Netflix today! August 16th, 2015

Today's three new additions to the Netflix library include a very good movie named Pariah (no, it's not a Syfy original), a pretentious Steve Carell flick, and a Paul Dano movie. The latter also stars Robert DeNiro, but who really cares about him anymore. Sorry, Bob, we'll always remember your Scorsese days.
