Netflix New Releases for October 2015 – Rev. Ron’s Bite-Size Synopses

Rev Ron Netflix New Releases

Well, fall is officially here and that means that I no longer have to look sweaty all the time and I now start looking weird because I am still wearing shorts.  September is now over and October is here and not only does that mean you’re going to see a whole bunch of articles about horror films here on The Robot’s Pajamas and all the awesome epicness that comes with Halloween (the best holiday, in my opinion) but that also means new movies hitting Netflix for you to enjoy during those cool autumn nights.  So grab a cup of hot cinder and a bowl of candy corn (if you’re like me and actually enjoy candy corn…but most people don’t) and get ready to stream your month away with these films!

american pie

Jim, it was wrong to put your penis in this pie.

American Pie (Oct. 1st) – This was a return to the sex comedies that sorta fizzled out after AIDS scared the crap out of everyone in the 80s and it focuses on exactly what all sex comedies do:  Teenagers trying to get some.  This one changed it up by having Eugene Levy in it and a boy f**king a pie.  I found this one funny when it came out but watched it a few years ago and just found it didn’t stand the test of time.  Skip It.

batman begins

Darkness! No parents! Super rich! Kinda makes it better!

Batman Begins (October 1st) – After Joel Schumacher nearly killed The Dark Knight’s movie career, it was a few years before the World’s Greatest Detective saw his way to the big screen again and it took Christopher Nolan to do it.  This new Batman film centered on Bruce Wayne’s rise as the Caped Crusader and it provided not only a new Batman in the form of Christian Bale (Pre-that strange Batman voice he did) but it also began a trilogy that featured a more realistic version of the hero.  I just watched it again a few weeks ago and it holds up–especially for Liam Neeson playing a great villain.  Watch It!

boogie nights

You got the touch!

Boogie Nights (October 1st) – Without a doubt, this film is one of the best by Paul Thomas Anderson as it tells the dramatic story of the rising porn star called Dirk Diggler.  The performances are awesome and the story is super engaging.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a Must See.  If you haven’t seen it in awhile, why not watch it again?

bourne supremacy

I always thought that Matt Damon was like a Streisand, but he’s rocking the shit in this one

The Bourne Supremacy (October 1st) – The second film in the Jason Bourne franchise, this film steps up its game as it continues to unfold what exactly happened to Bourne and delivers with killer spy drama and badass action.  Matt Damon is firing on all cylinders as both an actor and an action star in this one.  This is a Must for me!

charlie and the chocolate factory

If it has a silly wig or hat, Depp is in.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (October 1st) – Tim Burton decides to try and create a Willy Wonka film that is more true to the source material and he brings along his muse Johnny Depp to try and fill the large shoes that Gene Wilder created.  I wasn’t a fan of this film at all.  By this point, Burton’s career felt like a shameless parody of his early work and Depp is trying way too hard to be quirky to even come off remotely enjoyable.  I’d say Skip It.

curse of chucky

A kn-kn-kn-kn-knife is in this movie?!

Curse of Chucky (October 1st) – This is perfect for the Halloween season.  This film was a direct-to-DVD feature and is the latest in Chucky’s franchise.  It’s not actually a bad film and is very entertaining.  The film even does a great job of tying together the early films and has a ending that will, no doubt, delight Chucky’s hardcore fans.  If you’re looking for a good scary movie to get you in the mood for Halloween, I’d say Watch It.

And there ya have it!  I have to say I’m a little shocked that more horror films were not added and a little disappointed that, in the month of October, Netflix has decided to remove the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Devil’s Rejects, and Exorcist.  However, if you’re interested, you will be able to watch the amazing first season of The Flash and the latest season of Arrow.  Now, go forth, my friends, and stream!  I’ll see you next month!
