10 great classic movies coming to Netflix this November
Time to get (re)introduced to some great films over the next few weeks...
Netflix announced all of the new movies and shows we should expect to see added to its library throughout the month of November, but the streaming service has also released the details of the "classics" we can expect to see in the second last month of 2022, too.
Admittedly, some of these are genuinely great films, and some of them... aren't.
Let us start with the big attention grabbers:
Argo (1 November)
Ben Affleck's fantastic Oscar-winning drama features an incredible all-star cast retelling the true story of a group of government agents and fake filmmakers sent into the middle of a tense hostage crisis, in the hopes of the cover of the not-remotely-real movie they're making will distract the kidnappers from the real job at hand.
John Wick: Chapter 2 (1 November)
The second entry in the Keanu-kills-people-who-killed-his-puppy trilogy (although their is a fourth one arriving in 2022). We chatted to the man himself for the release of the first John Wick movie back in the day, and he was exactly as cool as you'd hope:
L.A. Confidential (1 November)
One of the best crime thrillers ever made, Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce front this story of corrupt cops and shady dealings in Hollywood in 1953. Unless you've seen it already, you definitely won't see this ending coming.
Point Break (1 November)
Another iconic Keanu Reeves action movie, this time he's the undercover cop infiltrating a group of super surfers (headed by Patrick Swayze), who may also be the same gang that are performing a series of smash and grab bank robberies.
Ransom (1 November)
With the news that Mel Gibson is set to appear in the John Wick TV series, now is as good a time as any to enjoy this tense thriller in which Gibson's son is kidnapped, and instead of paying the ransom to the kidnappers, he offers it to anyone who can help him and the police catch the kidnappers.
Spotlight (1 November)
Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo and loads more star in this powerful drama detailing a group of journalists and their investigation into the abuse allegations within the Catholic Church, as well as everything that was done to cover it up. We spoke with the movie's writer/director, and you can check that interview out right here:
Hustlers (2 November)
Jennifer Lopez is front and centre for this massively entertaining drama, based on the true story of a group of exotic dancers who begin a scheme of drugging their clientele and, well, hustling them for everything they're worth.
Jumanji: The Next Level (4 November)
The massively popular sequel to the massively popular reboot, we've got The Rock and Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan and Jack Black back in the mix, once again dragged into the video game world, this time facing a brand new threat.
Love, Actually (16 November)
You already know whether or not you love or hate this festive rom-com.
Little Women (26 November)
Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, Florence Pugh and Laura Dern star in the most-recent retelling of this classic tale of a group of sisters and the trials and tribulations of family, friends and love.
