November is just around the corner, and while that may mean Thanksgiving to many, it means Batman to HBO Now. On top of adding this summer’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice to its catalog, Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and a number of the recent animated feature films about the caped crusader will be available for your streaming pleasure. If superhero fare isn’t your cup of tea, Insidious: Chapter 3, Eddie The Eagle, and How To Be Single will also be added. In terms of original programming, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver and Insecure will both have their 2016 finales this month.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice
While it may have been met with mixed reviews, Batman V Superman did kick off the new DC cinematic universe, for better or for worse. By introducing Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonderwoman (as well as providing glimpses of the rest of the Justice League), fans get a sense of what is to come for some of their beloved heroes. It may not be a perfect start, but there is room to grow, so check this one out to see what all the nerds are griping about and form your own opinions.
Last Week Tonight With John Oliver
In an uncertain political climate, the sharp and incisive comedy of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver cuts through the fog and sheds light on oft ignored issues. The former Daily Show correspondent has truly found his own voice since striking out on his own, and viewers are all the better for it. If you want to get a clear look at how the world really works, catch up on this show before the season ends. You might even learn something.
All The President’s Men
More films are added to the political thriller genre every year, but few live up to the greatness of All The President’s Men. Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford are at their best as famed reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, who uncovered the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Deeply rooted in the ’70s but never more timely, All The President’s Men will keep you on the edge of your seat and deserves a spot at the top of your queue.
