Everything coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO Now in November


Usually in this post I try to design some (not-so) clever competitive framework that allows the various streaming services to compete against one another based upon what shows they add or lose in a given month. The kind of thing where I say that Amazon getting Small Wonder is a bigger win than Netflix debuting Stranger Things, for example. (The degree to which one agrees with these takes can vary depending on age or taste, except for this example which is empirically correct because everybody knows that a terrible ‘80s sitcom about a robotic girl is way better than one of Netflix’s best shows in years.)

This month, however, there’s not really a need to go through that kind of breakdown. There are shining moments here and there — Netflix is getting The African Queen and Boyhood for example, while HBO Now will be getting the original two Tim Burton Batman films — but the the competition is pretty much over once you see what Amazon Prime’s list. It doesn’t just include movies like Fletch and Creed, which would be pretty big gets in a normal month. Amazon Prime Streaming is also getting Rocky I through IV, and more importantly, the entire pre-Daniel Craig James Bond library. That includes Sean Connery classics like Dr. No, where you can uncomfortably shift in your seat at the regressive and sexist portrayals of women, A View To a Kill, where you can shiver at the dated (but undeniably catchy) synth flair of Duran Duran’s theme song, or Goldeneye, which you probably know better as the inspiration for a video game you use to play a lot.

Just as simple cultural artifacts, the Bond films are worth visiting, both as a (sometimes mind-boggling) reminder of what was once considered totally acceptable behavior in populist, popcorn entertainment — and for the context to understand how today’s Bond could even be considered slightly progressive.
