The New Movies & Shows On Netflix This Week Include The Movie Adaptation Of One Seriously Groundbreaking Show
November is kind of an odd time. The month has Election Day, and Veteran's Day, and Thanksgiving, but none of those have real seasons attached to them. September marks the start of the fall season, October gets Halloween and all things spooky, December is full-on holiday season... but November? It's mostly just a cold, awkward bridge between fall and winter; between Halloween and Christmas. So what does one do in November to pass the time? Well, if you're a Netflix subscriber, you watch classic movies, and the new movies on Netflix this week definitely fit the bill.
Among the plethora of all-time and modern classics hitting the streaming site the first week of November is Sex and the City: The Movie. The film is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and it's still just as fun to watch now as it was a decade ago. You'll remember what it felt like the first time you saw Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte marking major milestones that could only be handled on the big screen; from Carrie's wedding and Charlotte's pregnancy, to Miranda's marital problems and Samantha turning 50. The movie will take you back to a simpler time of cosmos and Manolos, and who couldn't use that right now?
If Sex and the City isn't your jam, have no fear, as Netflix has plenty of other new movies and shows streaming this week. You can check out the best of the lot below.
