What’s Good On Netflix Australia In October 2021?
Army of Thieves
While this month of Netflix certainly isn’t as strong as September, where we got the first half of Money Heist season 5, amongst a few other gems, at least we didn’t have to wait long for the next instalment in Zack Snyder’s newly formed Netflix horror franchise. What started with the surprisingly successful Army of the Dead earlier this year will continue this month with Army of Thieves. The film is conceived as an American-German heist-romance film, which is an odd hybrid for sure, but should at least be an entertaining watch if you’re looking for some new Movies on Netflix in October.
German actor Matthias Schweighöfer will reprise his role as safecracker Ludwig Dieter in Army of Thieves, this time alongside Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel and Man Like Moobeen’s Guz Khan. Much like Army of the Dead, this too will track a heist in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.
You don’t need a synopsis for Seinfeld, which still holds as the greatest sitcom in TV history. Jerry Seinfeld, Cosmo Kramer, Elaine Benes, and George Costanza are finally coming to Netflix for the first time, and the streaming service is rightfully making a big deal about it. As you can see above, they cut a special nostalgia-baiting trailer for the occasion.
For anyone with other streaming services, this isn’t much of a big deal. Seinfeld has already made the rounds from Stan to Amazon Prime, but Netflix now has global streaming rights to the sitcom, which they paid over US$500 million (AU$684.5 million) for. That may mean that Seinfeld will eventually be disappearing from the other streaming services, given Netflix has struck a five-year deal with Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David.
Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen has been hopping around streaming services for the past year, and now it’s Netflix’s turn to start streaming the drug-addled gangster comedy. The eccentric film, which follows the budding marijuana empire of Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) and the series of plots that unfold as he looks to cash out of the business. The strong cast is rounded out by Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, and Michelle Dockery; Ritchie (director and writer) has sketched each character out so uniquely that it’s almost impossible not to be entertained.
How Are Things Looking For Netflix Australia In October 2021?
I thought September 2021 was looking a bit bland for Netflix Australia, but October looks… worse. That’s not to say there aren’t some gems flying through Netflix Australia. The headline here is Seinfeld since Netflix is about to start their five-year deal with Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David for global streaming rights to the classic sitcom. It’s a big deal for the streaming giants, and certainly adds a bit of value for anyone who hasn’t seen it before.
Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen and Zack Snyder’s Army of Thieves are two very different films but should hold up the brunt of blockbuster entertainment for those who have already barreled through all the other movies on Netflix. Aside from that, there’s really not much coming for the month in terms of film. Even the non-exclusives are looking light, with the exception of Tom Hanks’ legendary Cast Away.
That should be more than enough to complement existing content and keep justifying that subscription fee. Or your mate’s subscription fee.
