movies leaving netflix

Typically, the end of October and start of November signals the heart of autumn: crisp air, falling leaves, Halloween, pumpkins (David S. or otherwise), and the proliferation of pumpkin spice flavors applied to every type of food imaginable. But it’s 103 degrees in Los Angeles today and there are at least more 100-plus degree days on the horizon, so please forgive me if I’m not quite in the spirit of the season yet.

When I’m done shaking my fist at the heavens, I’ll go inside and try to drown my weather-related sorrows in a solid batch of Netflix movies. movies. Luckily, we have a list of all of the TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in November 2017, and we’ll highlight a few of them that are worth cramming in before this month comes to a close.

v for vendetta tv series

Remember, remember the fifth of October — the day news broke that a V for Vendetta TV series is reportedly in the works.

Alan Moore and David Lloyd‘s seminal graphic novel may get the small screen treatment, after getting a movie adaptation in 2005 starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman. While Moore has denounced any and all Hollywood adaptations of his works, perhaps a British TV series will come closer to his liking.

Henry Cavill Comic-Con Disguise

Some of your favorite actors and actresses can be just as geeky and nerdy as you and me. However, since they have some of the most recognizable faces on the planet, they can’t walk around places like the Comic-Con show floor without being bombarded with fans looking to snap a picture or get an autograph. That means celebrities often have to have some kind of disguise in order to enjoy Comic-Con like an average attendee, and Henry Cavill did just that this past week.

In a video posted to the actor’s Instagram, Henry Cavill shows how he donned the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta in order to walk around Comic-Con. He even snapped some photos with fans wearing Superman shirts and ended up surprising some of the cast members of Suicide Squad during an autograph signing sessions at the DC Comics booth. See the Henry Cavill Comic-Con disguise fun after the jump. Read More »

In July 2014, one of our favorite artists Scott Campbell (aka Scott C) held a scavenger hunt to find his original watercolor Great Showdown paintings in the original filming locations across Los Angeles. This year he returns with The Great Great Showdown Hunt, a bigger and more epic hunt which will take the concept worldwide.

Todays edition takes us to Boston, New York and London. Do you live near these cities? You’re going to have to be quick, smart and pop culture-savvy to find these, but if you can, you might be able to get yourself an original Scott C painting.

The Fifth of November is important for a variety of reasons… but most importantly because it was the day that time Travel was invented.

Doc Brown: Here’s a red-letter date in the history of science, November 5, 1955. Yes, of course, November 5, 1955.

Marty McFly: What, I don’t get what happened.

Doc: That was the day I invented time travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porces was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the edge of the sink. And when I came to I had a revelation, a picture, a picture in my head, a picture of this. This is what makes time travel possible. The flux capacitor.

Marty: The flux capacitor?

Doc: It’s taken me almost thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day, my god has it been that long.

Happy 56th Birthday Time Travel!
