I’ll admit it. I stream the Colbert Show and Murphy Brown. Those two shows are reboots (David Letterman) the original Murphy Brown. When those shows came on I said I would stay up for the Colbert Show and Thursdays would be my night for television. Well, I was wrong. That’s because I like the convenience of streaming. In fact, if it doesn’t stream, chances are I don’t watch it. I’m not proud of this. I just don’t like staying up or being chained to watching television at a certain time.
That’s right, I like the luxury of streaming television. I am not really interested in celebrity interviews and I won’t watch television at a specific time. During college, I started streaming and just can’t stop. I did try. Well, instead of fighting it, I’m just going with it. That’s why I stream my television. I just can’t go back to watching television at a specified time. Here’s a list of what I’m watching this November. Our team collated the coolest shows coming to your streaming service. We did the work, you can just stream and enjoy. I listed them from my favorites to my least favorites.
Amelie –This masterpiece of cinema by Jean-Pierre Jeunet stars Audry Tautou. Amelie tells the story of a young woman who gets a jumpstart on life by adding a little bit of fantasy. Never underestimate the awesomeness of French cinema. Some of the best films have come from France. Just ask Inglorious Bastards director Quentin Tarantino. He’s utilized many items from notable French films.
The Faculty – Yes, this epic move got made because of the financial success of Scream. Still, this film starring some major names owns its own for being a great movie. The performance of Jon Stewart alone makes it worth watching.
Pleasantville – Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon star in this wonderful movie about how imagination can transcend a questionable past. Yes, the ‘50s were great for a specific population. Everyone else took turns playing servant.
James Bond movies – James Bond is its own genre. Yes, there’s more fantasy than science fiction. If you really want to get into the science fiction look at all the cool gadgets he gets to take on his kills. Many of the objects became the norm after a showing in a Bond film. No one actually knows a 007. There’s a reason he’s licensed to kill. The films A View to Kill, Die Another Day, Diamonds Are Forever, Dr. No, For Your Eyes Only, From Russia with Love, Goldeneye, Goldfinger, License to Kill, Live and Let Die, The Living Daylights, The Man with the Golden Gun, Moonraker, Never Say Never Again, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me, Thunderball, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, and You Only Live Twice will be streaming.
