What’s New to Netflix This Week

Published on November 2, 2020

Another week, another round of new additions to Netflix. Although all our eyes will likely be glued to the news this week for obvious reasons, we all might need an occasional escape via Netflix. The streaming service is adding an array of fantastic new additions to their library this week, including more than a handful of classics. Find out what’s new on Netflix below. 

Let’s start with three classics. Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange is available on the streaming service. It’s a Kubrick picture that may be a little too maddening and disorienting to check out this particular week, but it’s a classic. There’s never exactly a bad time to revisit a Kubrick film after all. It’s a nightmare of a movie that may, if anything, be right ripe for revisiting. It’s always timely. 

The Oliver Stone classic and Best Picture winner, Platoon, is now available as well. It’s Stone’s masterpiece. The polarizing filmmaker and Vietnam War Veteran connected more than ever with audiences with his personal war film, depicting what his eyes witnessed during the war. It’s a hellish anti-war film that never fails to terrify. (If you’re interested in witnessing more horrors, then stream Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.) 

There’s a newer and lighter classic, although it’s more of a modern classic, available, too. Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s 11 is on Netflix now. It’s an impeccable feel-great movie that never fails to plant a smile on your face. Every frame of the movie and its cast oozes with charisma. It’s perhaps one of the finest, most watchable ensembles ever assembled for a popcorn movie. George Clooney, as a charming movie star, was at the top of his game.

Another modern classic soon available is Mother from the filmmaker behind Parasite, Bong Joon-ho. It’s a movie best to experience blind if you haven’t seen it. It is a journey and, per usual with Joon-ho, unpredictable with its dramatic twists and turns and winning sense of humor. Unless we’re mistaken and it’s Albert BrooksMother available, then there’s another classic to watch as well.

There’s a few lighter, easy-to-watch options available this week, too. If anyone is in the need of some light and fluffy movies, Easy A and Yes Man are two fine options. Emma Stone shines in the High School Comedy along with an equally appealing supporting cast, while Jim Carrey is fun to watch in the kind-hearted if a little inconsistent Yes Man. By Carrey’s standards, he’s a little more reserved in the comedy, and yet still wholly watchable.
