Beyond 'Gilmore Girls': 10 other exciting Netflix additions

Posted on

Given the news that Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix in October, you might be tempted to spend the entire month binging on that. We wouldn’t blame you, but there are some other exciting editions coming to the site this month if you want to take a break from Stars Hollow. 

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be available on Oct. 22, giving you about a month to prepare for Mockingjay—Part 1. Netflix also has you covered when it comes to prepping for another fall release, the Annie remake, considering the 1982 Annie will be available Oct. 1. (So will 1995’s Annie: A Royal Adventure. Make of that what you will.)

There will be a pick of romances to watch at the beginning of the month, so if you want a happy ending, go with Sleepless in SeattleIf you’re looking for a downer, put on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.

Tarantino’s Django Unchained (available Oct. 25) is one of the Westerns coming to Netflix this month, including 1953’s Shane (available Oct. 1). Another classic? Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory (available Oct. 1). Or you can have a Dustin Hoffman double feature with Kramer vs. Kramer (available Oct. 1) and Rain Man (available Oct. 31). Finally, if you haven’t seen Galaxy Quest recently, watch Galaxy Quest (available Oct. 1). There is never a bad time to watch Galaxy Quest, a perfect send up/homage to Star Trek.

Among the titles also available this month: Charlie’s Angels: Full ThrottleChicken RunFinding ForresterTeam America: World Police, Carrie (2013), In a World…Liberal Arts.
