Big Mouth: Season 3 (04/10/2019)
In Season 3 of Big Mouth, as seventh grade comes to a close, Missy’s new Hormone Monstress (played by Thandie Newton) shows up to throw everything into chaos. Meanwhile, a new student (voiced by Ali Wong) arrives at school, forcing everyone at Bridgeton Middle to question their sexuality. Featuring a fantastic cameo from Queer Eye’s Fab Five, Big Mouth’s third season is shaping up to be its best yet.
Living with Yourself (18/10/2019)
What’s better than one Paul Rudd? How about two? In this Netflix original series, Miles (Paul Rudd) is a guy who’s failing to live to his full potential. After seizing the opportunity to undergo a radical spa treatment that promises to make him the best he can be, Miles wakes up in a ditch only to later find that he’s been replaced by a new and improved clone of himself (also played by Paul Rudd). Quirky and irreverent, Living with Yourself promises to take its Rick and Morty-esque premise and run with it.
With a premise that’s part Mad Max, part Zombieland and part Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Daybreak sees teen outcast Josh Wheeler (Colin Ford) realise his full potential after an event sends the world into a post-apocalyptic state. To further drive home the Ferris Bueller connection, Matthew Broderick stars as Josh’s high school principal.
Movies highlights for October 2019
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (11/10/2019)
Breaking Bad is one of the most celebrated TV shows of all time, so when creator Vince Gilligan decides to make a feature-length follow-up movie and release it on Netflix, you sit up and pay attention! El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie sees the return of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who we last saw fleeing the scene of a devastating massacre carried out by his former Meth-cooking mentor. Now, Jesse is on the run and must turn to his old friends Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matt Jones) for sanctuary. We wish we could tell you more about El Camino, but that’s all we know about it for now!
The Laundromat (18/10/2019)
With a killer cast that includes Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, The Laundromat follows a widow (Streep) who got swindled out of her life savings eventually track her money back to a pair of shady Panama-based lawyers (Oldman and Banderas). Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Oceans Eleven, Magic Mike), The Laundromat promises to be one of the most entertaining Netflix Originals of the year.
Dolemite Is My Name (25/10/2019)
Eddie Murphy is back! In the tradition of films like Ed Wood and The Disaster Artist, Dolemite Is My Name tells the story of stand-up comedian and entertainer Rudy Ray Moore (Murphy), a man who seizes the opportunity to make a film featuring his jive-talking, karate-kicking pimp alter-ego, Dolemite. Of course, the movie is hilariously amateurish, but manages to strike a chord with black audiences, leading the film to become one of the most beloved blaxploitation classics of the 1970s.
