Mickey’s Streaming Picks for November 2021

With the beginning of a new month comes new titles to all of the streaming services, so I’m here to share with you some recommendations of what to watch this month. This isn’t a comprehensive list of all things that are coming, but rather what I think you should check out if you’ve never done so, along with a few things I’m excited to check out. Let’s jump right in!

Hawkeye (Disney+ – Nov. 24th)

Being the huge fan of the MCU that I am, and of their Disney+ series’ in particular, I’m really excited for this to drop. The Hawkeye character has been around the MCU since its inception (and part of the actual Marvel Universe for a whole lot longer) and it’s past time that he got his own highlight series. Throw in the fact that it appears to be set around the Christmas holidays is another reason I’m super excited for it. Between this and my next pick, I’ve got a binge-worthy Thanksgiving weekend coming at me.

Masters of the Universe: Revelations Part 2 (Netflix – Nov. 23rd)

When part 1 of Masters of the Universe: Revelation debuted a couple of months ago, it was met with mixed reviews by long-time fans of the property. I was very impressed with it. From its animation, to its story, to all the twists and turns, I loved every minute of it and am eagerly anticipating the next part of the story.

Home Sweet Home Alone (Disney+ – Nov. 21st)

The next installment of the Home Alone franchise is dropping at just the right time of year. I guess I’ll have even more to watch over my long holiday weekend.

The Harder They Fall (Netflix – Nov. 2nd)

If you didn’t know already, I’m a huge fan of westerns. Not only the classics but a lot of the modern ones as well. I don’t know much about this movie other than what we can see in the trailer, but the action looks great, and the dialogue snappy. Anytime there’s a modern western hitting a service, it’s probably a good bet I’ll be checking it out.

Goodfellas (Peacock – Nov. 1st)

The 1990 Martin Scorcese gangster flick is one of the two finest examples of the genre along with The Godfather. Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, and Joe Pesci are outstanding as the central players in the movie, and their chemistry on-screen has been hard to match ever since the movie debuted. It’s crude and violent at times, but that adds to the impact this movie has when you watch it. If you’ve never seen it, remedy that this November.

Other Stuff I’m Excited About Streaming in November

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Disney+ – Nov. 21st) – The latest installment in the MCU features a new character in Shang-Chi, but we’ve heard of the Ten Rings before in Iron Man 3, and in the great short, All Hail the King.

Jungle Cruise (Disney+ – Nov. 21st) – In what is probably going to be the first movie in Disney’s next franchise series, The Rock takes us on a jungle cruise. If this has any of the same appeal as the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie, we’ll likely get more installments.

The Prestige (Hulu – Nov. 1st) – In a tale that encompasses stage magic with the actual wonders invented by Nikola Tesla, this movie has a great level of tension and drama along with stunning visuals. I’ve been a fan since I first saw it, and think it needs a wider audience.

And if that’s not enough for you, here are several movies I recommend that are coming to streaming in November…

  • Dallas Buyer’s Club (2013) – Peacock
  • American Gangster (2007) – Netflix
  • Fargo (1996) – Hulu
  • All the Right Moves (1983) – Paramount+
  • Jingle All the Way (1996) – Disney+
  • Platoon (1986) – Tubi
  • The Deer Hunter (1979) – Peacock
  • Blow (2001) – Roku Channel
  • Moneyball (2011) – Netflix
  • That Thing You Do (1996) – Hulu
  • Ernest Saves Christmas (1988) – Disney+
  • Unstoppable (2010) – Netflix
  • The Social Network (2010) – Roku Channel
  • Con Air (1997) – Tubi
  • Walk the Line (2005) – Netflix

  1. Some heavy hitters here. I’m not excited in the least for another Home Alone and the trailer does nothing for me. The Harder They Fall looks great. The Disney content is exciting mainly because Ernest Saves Christmas is coming!

    I’m a big fan of The Prestige as well.
