Binge season is approaching, and we all need to know what shows and movies are going to be at our fingertips this September. Netflix has added a lot of original content as well as other material to its catalogue. Here are just some of the options available this month.
“I’m Thinking About Ending Things”
This new film is from the writer of “Being John Malkovich” and “Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind,” so be prepared for something that will mess with your head. This has been dividing people as many find it to be a work of genius, and others consider the filmmaking too abstract and muddled.
“The Devil All the Time”
This Netflix original is set in a small town still reeling from the effects of war. It’s an American gothic story heavy with faith and history. This emotionally gripping story is supported by the fantastic list of talent. Haley Bennett, Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Bill Skargaard, and Sebastian Stan are just some of the incredible actors that bring this story to life.
Sarah Paulson leads this heavily stylized drama about a ruthless asylum nurse in the 1940s. The trailer is taut and energized with a wicked sense of humor. This new show is a prequel series for the classic book “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” which was made into a classic film starring Jack Nicholson. Fans are excited to revisit this character and see Paulson in her element.
“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous”
Another classic world that Netflix is returning to is the Jurassic Park series. This time however, it’s a little more kid friendly in this new TV show that comes out Sept.18. This animated series centers around a group of teenagers and the summer camp they attend on the island. Of course, it’s not quite Jurassic Park without some dinosaurs rampaging, so rest assured, there will be a lot of that too.
“Back to The Future”
In case you need your fill of old school stories, check out the classic “Back to The Future” trilogy. Netflix has added all three of the time-traveling adventures back on their site. Jump back into this world with Doc Brown, Marty McFly and the rest of them to see where the DeLorean takes them next.
If you’re looking for something a little more important to watch, then check out “Glory.” This true story is about Robert Shaw and the black battalion during the Civil War. The struggles and stories are brought to light with honesty and respect. The cast is amazing with Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman and Denzel Washington just to name a few. This is definitely one to watch.
Return to Jim Henson’s magical world with “The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted.” With beautiful puppetry, great characters and so much heart and soul, they more than hold-up, and it’s worth anyone’s time. Just like the rest of the new-to-Netflix shows mentioned, this is great to watch.
