What’s New on Amazon: November 2016

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Amazon Prime and Amazon Instant Video add new movies and TV shows to their libraries. Some of these may also have previously been on Amazon, only to have been removed and then added back. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Amazon and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

Boxer, brief: Creed

All of the Rocky movies save Rocky Balboa will be available this month, and while II–V are pretty skippable, there’s an awesome power to Ryan Coogler’s high-energy update to the franchise that demands to be experienced. Michael B. Jordan tears through the streets of Philadelphia with gusto in the central role, and dammit if his final fight doesn’t explode from the screen. Available November 19.

The shape-up: Barbershop

Amazon and Hulu share a lot of the same new offerings this month, including the original installment in Ice Cube’s hangout comedy series. Barbershop conjures a perfectly entertaining group of friends and colleagues for us to spend time with, and it’s also the inspiration for the immortal Chappelle’s Show quip: “You know that’s just a front — they sell drugs at the barbershops.” Available November 1.

“She had her kicks”: From Russia With Love

Like the Rockys, a vast selection of early Bonds are coming to both Amazon and Hulu this month. Skip the inferior Roger Moore installments and stick with the Sean Connery era, including the one that first introduced us to the menace of SPECTRE. It’s fun to see the filmmakers still trying to figure out just how outlandish they were allowed to be — and Klebb’s simple poison-tipped shoe makes for a surprisingly terrifying weapon. Available November 1.
