Best New Movies & Shows on Netflix for October 27th
Now let’s get into what’s new on Netflix:
Begin Again (2013)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Music
Director: John Carney
Cast: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine
Writer: John Carney
Runtime: 104 min
Awards: Nominated for 1 Oscar. 5 wins & 18 nominations total
Headlining this week’s new licensed movies on Netflix is Begin Again which returns to Netflix today after last available in 2018.
With a RottenTomato score of 83%, the movie is perhaps one of the best rated to be added throughout the entirety of October 2021.
Never checked out the movie before? Here’s what you can expect:
“When a down-on-his-luck music producer discovers a promising singer-songwriter in a bar, he resolves to launch her career — and save his own.”
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Jude Law
Writer: Joby Harold, Guy Ritchie, Lionel Wigram
Runtime: 126 min
Licensed from Warner Brothers on Monday, this movie has quickly shot up the movie charts since its arrival.
Starring Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam, the movie is a modern retelling of a classic tale that comes from Guy Ritchie.
Here’s what you can expect from the epic fantasy:
“After pulling an enchanted sword from a stone, a streetwise misfit must accept his destiny as future king and stand up to a villainous uncle.”
Roswell, New Mexico (Season 3)
Genre: Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi
Cast: Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons, Michael Vlamis
Writer: Carina Adly MacKenzie
Runtime: 45 min
The CW’s Roswell, New Mexico is perhaps one of the network best kept secrets. The remake series, at least in our opinion, does enough to set itself aside from the original.
The third season’s episodes have all ranked above 7.7 with the season finale being the highest-rated episode to date.
If you haven’t checked out the series yet, here’s what you can expect going in:
“After 10 years, a woman returns to her sleepy hometown and discovers her high-school crush is also an unusual foreigner.”
