Narcos Season 3 hits Netflix, among other titles

Happy new month, movie and TV-goers! The first of any month usually brings plenty of new content to streaming services. However, for the sake of my fingers not falling off, I’ll stick to Netflix.

Here are some new titles looking to take time away from your busy schedule on Sept. 1, according to MarketWatch:

Narcos, season three: I’m among the small crowd that feels not-so-positive with the departure of actor and one half of our DEA duo Boyd Holbrook. “Oh, he’s not a good actor, anyways!” I hate that argument. Holbrook, who plays troubled Steve Murphy, did a fine job at expressing his inner conflict with trying to keep his cool against a drug lord who made his life as an agent and father/husband a living hell. His contrast with his more mild-mannered partner, Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal, Game of Thrones), helped make season two that much more enjoyable. Sure, Pascal will carry the mantle and I bet he does fine, but this show’s going to miss a big chunk and what made it a gripping ride.

Final Fantasy XIV Dad of Light, season 1

Little Evil

Pulp Fiction: Do I need to say anything about this Quentin Tarantino classic?

Amores Perros: This is going to be a title I hop on ASAP. I watched the introduction to director Alejandro Iñárritu’s 2000 hit, but never completed the film. From what I remember, it was unlike much of what I had seen up to that point in my young life.

City of God

Dead Poets Society

Deep Blue Sea

Disney’s Hercules

Jaws: The Revenge: We really needed all these Jaws titles, eh?

LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale, season 1 

Maniac, season 1

Outside Man: Vol. 2

Requiem for a Dream: A little aside about this one: I was seven years old when this film released. It wasn’t until I checked this out from my local library at around 11, 12 years old that I realized this isn’t a film merely about dreams. As an elementary student, D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) was a prevention/awareness program about drugs. That program didn’t do half as good a job as Requiem for a Dream, which absolutely scarred me for the rest of my life and reminded me that, yes, drugs ARE horrible.
