Geekflix – Top ‘Netflix’ Picks For November 2016

The leaves are turning another color and October is almost at an end. It’s time to look at the geekiest shows, movies, and original programs Netflix has to offer in November. Take the time to look at these titles and plan what to watch after the turkey dinner and before Black Friday Shopping.

Candyman 2

1. Candyman 2: Farewell To The Flesh (November 1st)

Need help say goodbye to Halloween? Try watching a bad horror movie and your feelings of nostalgia will disappear before you know it. This charmer has a 25% on and did some real damage by making sure Candyman 3 went straight to DVD.


2. Cujo (November 1st)

The original bad dog makes his way to Netflix. Consider this an alternative to the first entry. Not in the mood to give up the Halloween spirit so soon? Then watch as Cujo becomes rabid, turns from big cuddle fellow into a killing machine, and you’ll be able to keep the horror movie buzz alive.


3. The Jetsons: The Movie (November 1st)

With DC reintroducing Hanna-Barbera titles it might be best to give this movie a shot so you can get familiar with these classic characters just in case they make an appearance sooner or later. Or at least before the next straight to DVD special comes out where they meet the WWE. Yes. It’s happening. You don’t even have to go to google, trust me, it’s a thing.


4. World of Winx (November 4th)

In need of a little girl power? Look no further than this Italian created magic girls series. In their new spinoff series, they are going to come to Earth in an effort to look for individuals who are blessed with talent which is being stolen by a villain known as the Talent Thief.


5. Danger Mouse: Season 2 (November 9th)

The second season of the Netflix original series which helped to breath new life in the world’s greatest animated secret agent returns. If you didn’t treat yourself to this series back when it first debuted, take this opportunity to catch up before season two starts. Don’t worry, the episodes aren’t very long. You’ll binge it in no time.


6. Tales From The Darkside: The Movie (November 11th)

Haven’t hear of this horror anthology? If you call yourself a true horror fan than you owe it to yourself to check it out. One of the stories in this movie was based on a Stephen King short story and brought to life by George A. Romero (Night of The Living Dead). If this doesn’t sound appealing to you than you should really rethink if you are truly a horror fan or not.

The 100

7. The 100: Season 3 (November 16th)

While it had a slow gathering at first, it seemed sometime after the second season and into the third, this show finally got the following it deserved. Watch as survivors from a space station work to stay alive in an unforgiving world they aren’t prepared for. Also, the show has been renewed for a fourth season so best to catch up now.


8. Burn After Reading (November 16th)

Need something a bit out there? Check out this movie from the Coen Brothers (Fargo and Big Lebowski) which features government secrets, adultery, and murder but presented in a very entertaining and comical fashion. Also, Brad Pitt is just nuts in this movie.


9. Paddington (November 16th)

An adaptation many didn’t think would be as good as it turned out to be. Watch as the talking bear from the deepest part of Peru comes to civilization and discovers a fondness for marmalade. It was so good, a sequel will becoming out next year. It looks like the perfect film to watch with the family after Thanksgiving dinner.

The Jungle Book

10. The Jungle Book (2016) (November 30th)

The new live action adaptation of The Jungle Book took many by surprise with just how good it was. Now you can check it out for yourself and see if it’s really worthwhile. If you need convincing, you can listen to the hosts of our podcast discuss it if you need more convincing to check it out.
