Streaming Recommendations: July/August 2020

Instead of twenty capsules alongside recommendations, from now on I’ll just provide a list of titles. That way I’ll have more time to write fuller capsules elsewhere on here and link to them if need be. Also, I’ll include both July and August in this edition because these would make so much more sense coming at the beginning of the month than so late into it.
