As September comes to a close (honestly where TF did the time go?), there are plenty of reasons to be stoked for October. Not only Halloween, because we know you can’t wait to get real basic with your animal ears…jk please don’t, but Netflix is adding a whole slew of new titles to its library.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this month’s additions are a significant improvement from last month and the month before. Maybe fall is just a better time for movies. So snuggle up, grab a PSL, and binge on.
1. A Cinderella Story (2004)
Remember when Chad Michael Murray and Hillary Duff had their on-screen romance? And Jennifer Coolidge played the hilariously evil step mother we loved to hate. This is honestly still one of my favorite Duff movies and I’m beyond stoked that it’s coming to Netflix in a matter of days. Ladies, get your wine ready.
2. Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)
How is this movie not a permanent resident on Netflix? Seriously, Breakfast At Tiffany’s is an absolute classic. It might just be time for an Audrey Hepburn marathon.
3. Dazed And Confused (1993)
If you feel like flying high back to the ‘70s for an hour or so, Richard Linklater’s Dazed And Confused is finally making its debut on Netflix next week. Also, and possibly most important, Matthew McConaughey is a total babe in this cult classic. I mean, those high-wasted jeans, though.
4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
FINALLY! Ferris Bueller is coming to Netflix. Who better to spend your day with when you play hooky from work? Let’s also take a minute to appreciate how young Matthew Broderick was when this film came out (1986, btw).
5. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (2003)
Another McConaughey film makes its way onto the streaming service this month and we can already feel a wine night coming on. The chick flick of all chick flicks has one of our favorite gals, Kate Hudson, starring alongside the ever-handsome McConaughey and it’ll make you forget all about being single…or remind you how alone you are, either way it’s one of my favorites.
6. RV (2006)
Though this movie is not one of my all time favorites, I have to give it up to the casting director. Robin Williams (RIP) and JoJo in the same movie? A bizarre combination to say the least, but like any Williams movie, you’ll spend the entire time laughing until your sides hurt.
7. Snow Day (2000)
Let’s be real, Snow Day was a classic. Those of us from the south would hope and pray for a real snow day as cool as this one. Of course, the most we ever got was something similar to sleet and Chevy Chase never showed up to hang out with us.
8. Titanic (1997)
In case you’re feeling like a good long cry, Titanic is yet another big name making its way into Netflix’s library in October. I mean, it’s not all sad and tearful. We can’t easily forget the steamy car scene with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet or the painting scene. We’ll be one of your French girls, Jack.
9. Without A Paddle (2004)
After you’ve spent a solid 3 hours glued to Titanic, you can switch over to something that’s a bit less serious and whole lot of hilarious. Matthew Lillard, Seth Green, and Dax Shepard make for an absolutely ridiculous trio who decide to fulfill their childhood dream by going on a camping expedition. Needless to say, things don’t go quite as planned.
10. Ghost Town (2008)
If you’re a fan of the original British Office and all of Ricky Gervais’ quirky antics, Ghost Town is definitely one to add to your binge list for October. Imagine almost dying and then coming back to life with the ability to see ghosts, yeah shit gets pretty ridiculous to say the least.
11. American Horror Story: Hotel Season 5
From the twisted and clearly disturbed mind of Ryan Murphy, comes the 5th season of American Horror Story. Tbh, I have yet to watch this season because I refuse to watch it alone. Talk about some seriously messed up nightmares. This is a good one for a group binge session and just in time for Halloween.
12. Supernatural Season 11
Dean! Sorry, I don’t care how much time passes. Jared Padalecki will always be one of Rory’s failed love endeavors from Gilmore Girls. Anyway, the 11th installment of the Supernatural series is hitting Netflix and you can continue binge-ing every episode.
13. Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)
Apparently, we haven’t seen enough Kung Fu Panda for one lifetime. The third (and hopefully final) movie in the series brings back your favorite voices like Jack Black and Bryan Cranston.
14. Quiz Show (1994)
Don’t judge me, but I have never seen this movie. I made this admission to my editor and it was, of course, met with a gasp and “what is wrong with you?” So, I’m adding it to the list not only for your viewing pleasure, but so that I can finally check it out for myself.
15. Three Kings (1999)
Remember that time George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, AND Ice Cube all starred in the same movie? Yeah, it happened and it was honestly pretty great. Three Kings tells the story of 4 soldiers set out to steal gold that was stolen from Kuwait in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War. Aaaaaand George Clooney is still sexy AF.
16. Black Mirror (Season 3, Part 1)
If you have yet to see the previous seasons of Black Mirror, this show is chock full of some seriously mind blowing shit. It focuses on the unanticipated consequences of our ever-advancing technology and it will make you look at your iPhone in a whole different light.
