The spine-chilling atmosphere of October has now drifted away and no sooner than the moment the Halloween candy went on discount, Christmas decorations and merchandise has flooded every retail store in the country (some of them couldn’t wait until Halloween was cold and dead before their invasion). But December isn’t here yet and we still have one more holiday before we get to decorated trees and a fat man in red breaks into your house to give you gifts. November means it’s time to give thanks and we show that by spending time with people we can’t help but love and, at the same time, annoy the living spit out of us. So, when you’re sitting on the couch with your family and tell yourself once again that you’re not going to eat that much ever again in your life, turn on Netflix and check out some of these titles that are being streamed this month! Or, even better, when you are sitting around and regretting that second piece of pumpkin pie (but not the third and fourth, for some reason), gather the family around and binge on the next Marvel Netflix series Jessica Jones. I know I plan on watching its entirety when it goes live on the 20th but, like Daredevil, I’m probably going to watch through it three or four times, so I know I’m going to try to convince the family to check it out…I already got my girlfriend on board for it!
Maybe it’s the time of the year or the way Netflix let their deal with Epix slide but November is slim pickings. Unlike past months, not many movies were added and I, sadly, have only seen one of them. Oh sure, there are plenty that I want to see like the Kurt Cobain documentary Soaked in Bleach, the doc about Cannon films or People, Places, Things with Jemaine Clement but, out of all the few films that are being added, I’ve only seen one. I’m kinda embarrassed by this because I’m suppose to be a film nut and I’m letting you readers down. Well, looks like it’s suicide again for me. So, while I commit seppuku, here’s a look at what’s coming to Netflix this month.
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (Nov. 1st) – It’s pretty amazing how long this absorbent, yellow, porous and incredibly optimistic young sea creature who lives in a pineapple under the sea has lasted. It’s even harder to believe that this first feature film for SpongeBob and his friend Patrick is already a decade old but, if you’re a fan of the cartoon or have children who are, this is a super fun movie and is stupidly hilarious. I’m a fan and I have to say this is a Must See!

And there you have it. Like I said, there is a noticeable drop in the volume of movies this month and very, very few of them are older features. Is this a sign of things to come after the Epix deal lapsed? Maybe. Regardless, I know that above all else, I at least have Jessica Jones to dive head first into and swim around in for awhile. Now, go forth and stream! I’ll see you next month, friends!
Rev. Ron is a wannabe film nut who now has to re-evaluate his life because the only film he’s seen on Netflix’s new releases this month is a Nickelodeon cartoon. He also likes puzzles, walks on the beach and would very much like you to check out his blog where he reviews whatever films find their way into his Blu-ray player and to follow him on Twitter (@RevRonster).
