Netflix Movies and Series to Watch in November 2020
Each month, Netflix draws up a schedule of releases. For November 2020, we have brought you the list of novelties. But as we know the platform well, we have also put our little favorites: forgotten pearls, classics to (re) discover, or content to share.
New Netflix movies, series, and cartoons in November 2020
Our dear colleagues from Netflix-News or Premiere draw up very complete lists of Netflix novelties that will arrive in November. You know, it’s very easy to miss out on interesting content on Netflix where one novelty is chasing another. Here is a very personal selection with must-see films, a series that smells of leather and gasoline at $ 1 a stripe, an end-of-year holiday classic, an unsung “Bruce Willis”, an American stand-upper who does not have his tongue in his pocket, English swear words, mafia, and martial arts completely blown away. If you want to share your nuggets, do so in the comments.
Netflix Movies and Series in November 2020
1. Hudson hawk
Just released from prison after serving a 10-year sentence, the most gifted burglar of his generation must come back to save a friend. An atypical film, full of action with a “cartoon” side and where the song has an interesting role, Hudson Hawk is not the most famous film starring Bruce Willis, but certainly one of the craziest. Note also the quality of supporting roles with Danny Aiello, Andie MacDowell, and James Coburn.
2. Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones
Dave Chappelle is an American comedian who is not into political correctness: transgenderism, abortion, racial insults, suicide, second amendment, Louis CK affair… He does not cut corners and this 2019 show is the perfect example. It has certainly aged a bit since Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show (2003-2006) but it has not lost any of its verve. The show is of course subtitled in French. If you like the style, his two other shows from 2017, Equanimity, and The Bird Revelation are also available on the platform.
3. Scam, Crime & Botany
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels in the original version is a Guy Ritchie film that precedes the excellent Snatch. In this small masterpiece of English cinema, Eddie loses a large sum of money in poker and must quickly repay the underworld before his father (Sting) loses his bar. With his friend’s Soap, Bacon and Tom, they will then try to rob some weed dealers.
Nothing will go as planned and the twists and turns involving a whole bunch of colorful characters will be legion. Note the remarkable presence of Jason Statham in his first role (spoiler alert: he does not play big arms) and professional football Vinnie Jones. A must-see in the original version, otherwise we won’t talk to you anymore.
Anime is rarely realistic, let alone when it comes to martial arts. But Baki is a cut above with completely outlandish fighting techniques, guys who stop bullets with their teeth, dismemberments, dislocated joints, guys who cut stones with hands, faces torn off, etc. . The story? He’s an arch-strong guy who wants to get even stronger. Well let’s be frank, the story is secondary unless we are interested in “lore”.
Because this adaptation follows an older animated series, Grappler Baki, which traces the story of the hero and the main protagonists of this “Netflix version”. Unfortunately, Grappler Baki is not available on the platform and the graphics from 2001 may put you off. Watch the first episode and see if you hang in there.
5. The Goonies
A big classic from 1985 to see with your children or to review under your duvet with a bowl of Benco. The Goonies is an adventure film with a group of kids who go in search of the treasure of Willy the One-eyed, a pirate who scoured the coasts of Oregon. Criminals on the trail, traps, eccentric inventions, puzzles: The Goonies is the film of a whole generation. It is also the occasion to see Josh “Thanos” Brolin in his youth…
6. Donnie Brasco
Donnie Brasco is the true story of Joseph Pistone who infiltrated New York’s Bonanno family in the late 1970s. A cult film starring Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, and Michael Madsen. A real diamond (and not a fugazi). If you’ve never seen it, you have no more excuses. Forget about it!
7. Sons of Anarchy
If you missed out on this series, maybe now is the time to get started. The story takes place in California, in an outlaw motorcycle club. The storyline revolves around Jax Teller, the club’s vice president, relations with his stepfather and president ( Ron Perlman ), and questions about the conduct of his MC (Motorcycle Club).
Also intertwined are close ties to the IRA, a possessive mother, an ex-girlfriend, neo-Nazis, the Chinese triads, arms trafficking. The 7 seasons follow each other and are not alike. We don’t have time to breathe and we never tire of the themes discussed: brotherhood, betrayal, revenge, and redemption.
