New month, new program. Netflix as usual throws out some titles from the media library, but many new contents come in return. October 2017 is waiting with new series, movies and documentaries. Star Wars" in particular was eagerly awaited by many customers. We’ll not only show you the highlights, but also warn you about the movies and series you’d better stay away from.
Here are the Netflix highlights in the month of October 2017:
New movies on Netflix:
"The Meyerowitz Stories.", from the 13. October: Along with "Okja," the tragicomedy is the second Netflix film to make it to the Cannes Film Festival in May. Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller play here sons of Dustin Hoffman, an eccentric artist, who would like to know the own children always in its shade. Adam Sandler, who usually only shoots garbage for Netflix, shines here with restrained acting.
"1922", As of the 20. October: The year 2017 has somehow turned into the Stephen King festivals. In the cinema, "It" and "The Dark Tower" are running, on Netflix, "The Mist" ran last – but the series was canceled after one season. Now Netflix launches the film "1922" to the start. A man kills his wife and is suddenly pursued by rats. A mind game begins, a bloody one of course.
"Star Wars: Right at the start of October, "The Force Awakens" will be released on Netflix. In a few weeks, they will be followed by "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi Knights," "The Dark Menace," "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith". These five parts of the series will be released from 15. October will be available in the German Netflix. It is noticeable, however, that "A New Hope," the very first "Star Wars" film, does not enter the media library. At least it has not been announced yet. "Rogue One," which hit theaters in 2016, is also still missing.
Mark Hamill in "Star Wars"
"Naked", from the 2. October: German cinema had a small high shortly after the turn of the millennium, "Nackt" still works great today. Three couples meet for dinner and bet that they can recognize each other even if they are blindfolded. Then the covers come off Jurgen Vogel, Alexandra Maria Lara and Nina Hoss.
New series on Netflix:
"Stranger Things", Season 2 from the 27. October: The nostalgia mystery series was THE new series of 2016. Great music, nice 80s references and child actors who don’t get on the last nerve of the viewers, but really perform impressively. In season two, the small town of Hawkins is once again haunted by mysterious beings. And Eleven returns from limbo to fight it with her friends.
"Berlin Station", Season 2 from 16. October: Not the highest gloss, but it’s perfect for spy stories. The CIA is looking for a whistleblower from its own ranks and the German capital again becomes the secret star of the series.
"The Walking Dead", Season 7 from the 25. October: The eighth season of the series will start on Sky in October; on Netflix, it always takes a little longer for the zombies to shuffle through the forest again. The negative highlight of the season: the worst CGI deer since the invention of CGI deer. But the rest will satisfy fans again.
