Best New Movies & Shows on Netflix for October 29th
Now before we dig into what’s new for the day, let’s take a look at our top 3 picks:
Army of Thieves (2021)
Genre: Action, Crime, Horror
Director: Matthias Schweighöfer
Cast: Matthias Schweighöfer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ruby O. Fee
Writer: Shay Hatten, Zack Snyder
Runtime: 127 min
The big new release for today is the prequel to the summer Netflix blockbuster, Army of the Dead from Zack Snyder. Although Snyder is involved with the prequel in both a producer and writing role, it’s the turn of Matthias Schweighöfer to be both in front and behind the camera.
In this prequel to “Army of the Dead,” a mysterious woman recruits bank teller Dieter to help her crew crack three legendary safes across Europe.
Colin in Black & White (Limited Series)
Genre: Biography, Drama, Sport
Cast: Jaden Michael, Colin Kaepernick, Gabriel Womack
Writer: Ava DuVernay, Colin Kaepernick
Runtime: 35 mins
Colin Kaepernick teams up with Ava DuVernay to present this biopic on the former NFL star’s rise to fame and his eventual journey to become the activist he is today.
Given the contentious subject matter of the series, reviews that have flooded in early on have mostly been negative. Indeed the teaser trailer for the series also was widely disliked with only a 17% like ratio.
Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go (Season 1)
Genre: Animation, Short, Action
Cast: Meesha Contreras, Charlie Zeltzer, Glee Dango
Writer: Rick Suvalle, Britt Allcroft
Runtime: 11 mins
Netflix has received the brand new rebooted Thomas the Tank Engine series today in the form of Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go.
We should absolutely point out that this new look for Thomas & Friends has not gone over well with long-term fans of the show. In fact, the show has a very low IMDb score with many expressing their disappointment for the new direction the show has taken.
