As we near the end of October, we have plenty to be excited for. Halloween is less than a week away (I still don’t have a costume) and November is basically here. The weather is finally starting to cool off and the weeks of snuggling up with Netflix marathons are eminent.
The streaming service recently announced all the flicks they’ll be adding to their library next month and we aren’t disappointed. I mean, Gilmore Girls…come on.
1. Cujo (1983)
This 1980’s horror about a killer canine comes from the wonderfully twisted mind of Stephen King. Cujo the Saint Bernard is bit by a rabbid bat causing him to morph into a dangerous blood-thirsty beast that terrorizes a small town. A mother and son become caught in the middle of his rampage and are forced to fight for their lives. So, if you’re still feeling like a scary movie marathon post-Halloween, this might be a good selection for your list.
2. Thinner (1996)
Apparently, November is the month of Stephen King. Another film adaptation of a King classic, Thinner is making its way into Netflix’s library and it’s unsurprisingly disturbing AF. Robert John Burke plays an overweight lawyer who unintentionally hits a Gypsy with his car. The Gypsy’s father places a curse on Burke’s character that causes him to lose weight at an alarmingly fast rate and his life is turned upside down. Needless to say, this is another solid choice for any horror marathon you might be having after Halloween.
3. Just Friends (2005)
Remember that time Ryan Reynolds wore a ridiculously obvious fat suit and fell in love with Amy Smart? We do and it’s still one of our all time favorite movies. With additional appearances from the likes of Anna Farris and Chris Klein, this hilarious rom-com never gets old. If you’re looking for a good flick for wine night with the girls or maybe something to ease any awkward tension at your next Netflix and Chill sesh, this is the perfect choice.
4. The Heartbreak Kid (2007)
This might be one of the most underrated Ben Stiller rom-com’s out there after Along Came Polly. After his seemingly perfect fling with Lila (Malin Akerman), Stiller decides to propose and in an interesting turn of events, Akerman ends up being a total psychopath. Then, on their honeymoon Stiller manages to meet his real soulmate and shit expectedly hits the fan. So, if you’ve got a gal pal in need of a good laugh after some relationship troubles, this is the ideal movie for wine night.
5. Burn After Reading (2008)
Regardless of which side you choose to take on the whole Brangelina split, this 2008 Pitt film is a must-see. A former CIA agent’s top-secret memoirs fall into the hands of two quirky gym employees (Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt.) They quickly realize how valuable these records are and that they could have enough money for a life-altering cosmetic surgery. To no one’s surprise, things get ridiculously out of hand. Grab a cold one and get comfy for this new Netflix addition.
6. Jackass 3.5: The Unrated Movie (2011)
Just in case you’ve been needing a little Steve-O/Johnny Knoxville in your life or maybe something to watch while you’re beligerently drunk, Jackass 3.5 is making its Netflix debut next month. The boys are back with yet another round of cringeworthy stunts and unbelivably stupid antics, but they’re the best at what they do, right? Turn this on the next time you get home from the bars and aren’t ready to pass out yet.
7. Boyhood (2014)
Academy Award Winner, Boyhood comes from director Richard Linklater who brought us classic films like Dazed and Confused. The story was filmed over the course of 12 years and follows the life experiences of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), his parents (Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke) and his sister (Lorelei Linklater.) The cast alone is enough of a reason not to miss this truly inspirational film. It makes its way into Netflix’s library mid November and we will definitely be watching it with a nice glass of vino in hand.
8. The Jungle Book (2016)
Disney’s classic Jungle Book was brought to the big screen earlier this year and is already making its Netflix debut. While this could be perceived as the film being less than successful at the box office, we’re still eager to see this reimagination. With an adorable Mowgli and the voice of Bill Murray as Baloo, there’s bound to be plenty of entertainment. Just keep hitting us right in the childhood feels, Disney.
9. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (Netflix original)
Of course, we’ve saved the very best for last. The Gilmore Girls revival will premiere world wide on November 25th and we can barely contain ourselves. In fact, the official trailer was finally released today and you need to go watch it like, now. Lorelai and Rory are back in all of their Stars Hollow glory.
