Best Movies And TV Shows Coming To Peacock In November 2021

October has come and (mostly) gone, which means we've officially hit the weekend of the calendar year. And to think people actually have the audacity to consider themselves "not a fan" of the colder autumn and winter months. Fools, the lot of you! Many might be tempted to mourn the end of Spooky Szn, but I choose to ring in November with a whole host of newly added movies to the never-ending shuffle of streaming service rotations. Haven't quite gotten around to those first two "Blade" movies just yet? Feeling up to a "Lethal Weapon" marathon of the four "Lethal Weapon" movies? Care to revisit the glory years of your childhood with the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" trilogy? Have at it! Here's everything that's coming to Peacock in November 2021.

Erin Brockovich

Believe it or not, there are some folks walking around right this very second who've criticized Steven Soderbergh for being too "cold" or "calculating," bereft of earnestness and a sense of heart. These people, I assume, never watched "Erin Brockovich." Just how good is this movie? It's "Immortalized in a Lonely Island song" good. Oh, if you're into this sort of thing, then I guess I should mention it was also nominated in 2001 for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor, with Julia Roberts snagging Best Actress along the way. The credentials speak for themselves! Based on the true story of Erin Brockovich's legal struggle in taking on the might of the energy corporation PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric Company) for rampant contaminated groundwater, the film became a box office hit and would eventually influence many other legal thrillers that have followed in its footsteps. As one of the most versatile filmmakers on the planet, Soderbergh dares you to underappreciate him at your own risk.

A Knight's Tale

Before there was Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel," there was ... "A Knight's Tale." Okay, not really, but it's fun to pretend that this energetic and hilariously modernized fantasy story lay the groundwork for every vaguely similar genre film that followed in its wake. Without "A Knight's Tale," we would simply not have "The Green Knight." See? Try it yourself! Of course, the joys of this rebellious little action/adventure flick are tempered by the loss of heartthrob Heath Ledger, who proves just how much of a movie star he really was as the character of William Thatcher. He's joined by what can only be considered to be a murderer's row of a supporting cast, including Mark Addy, Paul Bettany, Alan Tudyk, and more. Its punk rock sensibilities and anachronistic needle drops are as much a part of its charm as watching Ledger con, cheat, and seduce his way into everyone's hearts.

Midnight Run

I've written at length about this surprisingly emotional buddy comedy in the past and I'm going to praise it once again because it's just that good. Every two-hander lives or dies on the strength of its two leads and, in this case, Robert De Niro channeling every ounce of his star power and charisma is flawlessly offset by the late Charles Grodin's quiet, simmering screen presence. A bounty hunter and an embezzling accountant, the two find themselves stuck together on a weeklong "midnight run" from New York to LA while dodging the cops, drug lords, and even fellow bounty hunters who've gotten a whiff of the potential earnings at stake. You'll be repeatedly charmed by supporting turns from Joe Pantoliano and the late Yaphet Kotto, by John Ashton's bumbling bounty hunter and the menacing crime lord Jimmy Serrano played by Dennis Farina. And best of all, this 1988 comedic crime/thriller can't hide the gooey heart at its center.


You better believe I'm taking this opportunity to double-dip once more with a film I've previously written about here. Between "War of the Worlds" and "Munich," 2005 was a fascinating year for Steven Spielberg. He's rarely (if ever) imbued one of his films with as much darkness, brutality, or sheer despondence as he does in "Munich." Where plenty of other filmmakers never would've even tried to approach as complex a real-world political situation as the Israel/Palestine conflict, Spielberg does so with a steady and assured hand while going even further and connecting the conflict with how the United States chose to respond in the aftermath of 9/11. Not every film that causes outrage and controversy is automatically a worthwhile one, but "Munich" masterfully surfed the unfair, kneejerk anger thrown its way and has firmly established itself as one of Spielberg's most must-watch entries in his entire filmography. It's devastating, violent, and not an easy watch by any means. It's also one of his absolute best films.


Yes, "Se7en" is a painfully obvious choice to highlight here. Yes, it has its fair share of fans who can be somewhat obnoxious and, dare I say it, fall under the category of a "dudebro." No, that doesn't make "Se7en" any less incredible. David Fincher has never hesitated to dive deep into the dark, seedy, grimy underbelly of criminals and killers. His fascination with the kind of mind that could ever even conceive of such atrocious acts is fully on display here with the unfortunately perfect casting of Kevin Spacey as a complete and total creep. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt play off each other just as well, as two police detectives at utterly opposite points in their lives who must put everything aside — their differences, their egos, their emotional investment — in order to bring a maniac to justice. Even over 25 years later, we're still unraveling secrets from this wildly influential film. In fact, if you want to understand where the particular aesthetic in Matt Reeves' upcoming "The Batman" comes from, a trip back to the unforgiving world of "Se7en" would certainly be in order.
