'Back To The Future'

The entire Back To the Future trilogy is making like a tree and leaving Netflix, so plan accordingly to go back in time one more time with Marty McFly. Starting with the original, which introduced us to hoverboards. Also, the fact that where Doc Brown's DeLorean was going, he technically didn't need roads. (October 1.)


'Back To The Future Part II'

Marty McFly and Doc Brown were at it again in the sequel to Back To The Future, time traveling all the way to 2015. Worth watching just to see how close the movie comes to predicting what last year was supposed to be like. (October 1.)


'Back To The Future Part III'

The threequel to Back To The Future is a sci-fi and a Western, which has Marty McFly donning his cowboy boots for another trip back in time. This time, it's 1885, before commercial gasoline was a thing. Definitely doesn't make it easy to fix that DeLorean. (October 1.)


'Erin Brockovich'

Julia Roberts earned an Oscar for playing the real life California woman who managed to take down the Pacific Gas & Electric Company for knowingly poisoning residents with chromium-filled groundwater. Being that chromium has found its way back into the news recently — the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reported the carcinogenic chemical contaminates the tap water of 200 million Americans in all 50 states — you may want to watch this one before it's gone. (October 1.)

After watching this 1995 thriller, you're never going to look at gorillas the same way again. Or Tim Curry for that matter. But, it's definitely worth revisiting for a good laugh and a lesson in what CGI used to look like. (October 1.)

David Dettmann/Netflix

'The 13th'

If you really want to be scared this October, don't watch Insomnia or 10.0 Earthquake. Watch Ava Duvernay's new documentary, which deals with mass incarceration and racial inequality within the criminal justice system. She makes the case that all of this stems from the 13th amendment, which didn't free African-Americans like it originally promised. It will likely have you reading the Constitution a whole lot closer. (October 7.)


'Haters Back Off'

She may not be as good a dancer as the women of Honey, but Miranda Sings sure is trying. The first season of YouTube star Colleen Ballinger's new show deals with her journey to stardom, which may not be so easy, since she's not as talented as she thinks she is. (October 14.)
