The year is definitely flying by. As the days get shorter and shorter, it just means more time to kick back and unwind after a long day of work. There's nothing better than catching up on that show everyone's talking about, or finally getting to dig into that movie you've been waiting for. Luckily, the slate of new shows and movies on NETFLIX next month looks to be ready to help with that. From a highly anticipated western to arguably the biggest blockbuster we've seen yet, next month is bringing the fire.
So let's check out all the amazing new titles coming our way on NETFLIX in November, as well as what I'm hooked on right now.
Coming To NETFLIX in November
November 3 - The Harder They Fall
Long-awaited western thriller starring Idris Elba and Regina King.
November 12 - Red Notice
Blockbuster thriller comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
November 19 - Cowboy Bebop (Season 1)
Highly anticipated action sci-fi story based off of the classic anime series.
Finally, Red Notice is almost here! After being announced seemingly ages ago, NETFLIX's (arguably) biggest blockbuster movie ever is about to drop and it looks like the wait has definitely been worth it. Clocking in at a reported $160-$200 million USD budget, this action comedy thriller stars three of the biggest marquee names in the world: Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson! As if that wasn't enough of a draw, the story and dialogue are sure to make this one of the year's best! A red notice is a global alert issued by Interpol to capture the world's most wanted, but when the FBI's top profiler (Johnson) must team up with two rival criminals (Reynolds and Gadot), there's no telling what will happen.
This looks fantastic. The perfect match of action and comedy with three of the biggest names out there...I'm all over this. Bonus point for Ryan Reynolds being funny enough that he basically plays himself in any role...and we all know it's going to be worth watching. Look for Red Notice to smash all kinds of streaming records when it drops November 12!
What I'm Watching Now
Where to begin with the awesomeness that is Midnight Mass? The slow burning horror series from the creator of the Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan, this series is one that will stick with you for a while. I say slow-burning as this seven episode miniseries takes a few episodes to lay the groundwork. It seems like a drama with a few jump scares, but as it progresses...so does your dread as you watch. By the end of the series, it's basically chaos in the best way.
The story follows a man who returns home after a four year prison sentence for killing a young woman in a drunk driving accident. His home is Crockett, a small remote island somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. The town is very small and doesn't fully embrace him due to his actions. His return coincides with a new parish priest to the sleepy, highly religious town...and with their return comes a blend of the supernatural, and the terrifying. A dark secret is slowly uncovered which will leave the town shattered to its core.
I'm currently on my second watch of this amazing series, as I knew there was probably so much that I missed on the first viewing. Mike Flanagan's creations are so dense and meaningful, that you'll always find reasons to watch again...and things you missed. The cast here is really what stuck out for me, and they all do well to portray someone that has a veneer of calmness, with a secret hidden that you know you'll see uncovered before the show is over. I can't recommend this series enough for fans of horror, thrillers, or just a flat out great story. All seven episodes are available on NETFLIX now, and make for great late night bingefests!
