The first of the month is one of the best days of the month thanks to all the great new movies added to streaming sites such as Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. And of course, with Disney+ coming out on November 12th, the excitement is all that much more but we’ll come to Disney+ soon.
For now, I’ve listed 6 of my top choices for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video movies to watch. Do let me know in the comments below if you’ve seen any of the listed movies and/or what movies you’re best looking forward to seeing in November.
#1. The King (2019)
Description: Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos, and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton). Directed by David Michôd and co-written by Michôd and Edgerton, The King co-stars Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Pattinson, and Lily-Rose Depp.
Netflix: November 1, 2019
Rating: R for some strong violence, and language.
#2. The Christmas Candle (2013)
Description: A pastor who’s suffered a personal loss accepts a position in a town that believes in a Christmas miracle candle, which he strives to abolish. Starring Samantha Barks (“Pretty Woman on Broadway”), Hans Matheson (“The Tudors”), Lesley Manville (“The Harlots”) and Susan Boyle.
Netflix: November 1, 2019
Rating: PG for mild thematic elements.
My Review of The Christmas Candle.
#3. Dear Santa (2011)
Description: A young woman (Amy Acker, “Person of Interest”) who comes from a life of privilege falls for the owner of a soup kitchen (David Haydn-Jones, “Supernatural”) after discovering a Dear Santa letter written by his seven year old daughter.
Netflix: November 4, 2019
My Review: Dear Santa is one of those cheesy and heartwarming Christmas movies for the family that features a change of heart by a shallow character. What makes this movie stand out? The good acting by Acker and Haydn-Jones and the sweet girl who plays Haydn-Jones’ daughter. For those looking for a Christmas movie that points towards Christ’s birth, this will not be it.
#4. Creed II (2018)
Description: The second generation of the Rocky franchise doubles down on the family drama in this sequel, as Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) boxes the son of the man who killed his father in the ring. Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren reprise their roles as Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago.
Amazon Prime Video: November 15, 2019
Rating: PG-13 for sports action violence, language, and a scene of sensuality.
#5. Instant Family (2018)
Description: A couple (Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne) find themselves in over their heads when they foster three children.
Amazon Prime Video: November 14, 2019
Rating: PG-13 for thematic elements, sexual material, language (one use of the F word), and some drug references
#6. Angel Has Fallen (2019)
Description: Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself framed for an assassination attempt on the President (Morgan Freeman). Pursued by his own agency and the FBI, Banning races to clear his name and uncover the real terrorist threat which has set its sights on Air Force One.
Amazon Prime Video (for Rent/Purchase): November 12, 2019
Rating: R for violence and language throughout.
