Mostly, 2020 has been the year of bad news. And while many of us have taken comfort in Netflix and the ability to social distance and still watch a ton of great shows and movies, even the streaming giant has doled out its share of grim tidings.

Chief among these are the cancellations of some of the best shows on Netflix, including Altered Carbon, The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, and GLOW.

This puts something of a damper on my enthusiasm when it comes to these monthly “what’s coming to Netflix” posts, I will admit. It’s hard to get as excited for new content when many of our favorite shows have gotten axed. Still, we’ll plough ahead and do our best.

So what to watch this coming November? The first of the month is always a good time for new movies.

Some highlights include the twisted dystopian Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange based on the novel by Anthony Burgess (the novel is even more twisted than the film). Classic war film Platoon also lands that day, as does Boyz in the Hood.

For lighter fare, Oceans Eleven is a great heist movie, and Casper is a family classic that’s landing just one day short of Halloween. Jim Carrey’s Yes Man is good for a few laughs, though I still think Liar, Liar is better.

You’ll probably want to skip The Next Karate Kid as it was a complete bomb when it came out and might taint your enjoyment of Cobra Kai.

On November 15th, the fourth season of Netflix Original Series The Crown returns for all you fans of history and monarchy.

WWII buffs might want to check out the new war series The Liberator based on “Operation Avalanche” which follows the Allied invasion of Italy and the story of the regiment known as the Thunderbirds. That lands on the eleventh—Veteran’s Day. It looks like an interesting blend of animation and live-action:

Looks interesting. I’ll definitely check it out. Then again I’m a huge WWII enthusiast (not like I’m a fan of wars, but a fan of the history).

To get everyone in the holiday mood, Netflix Original Film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is described as a “musical adventure and a visual spectacle for all ages.”
