7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In October 2016, Including ‘Unforgiven’ and ‘Dazed and Confused’
Next month, Netflix offers up a big selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Best Picture winners to teen phenomenons — and we’ve picked seven that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Unforgiven” (available October 1)

The winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture, Clint Eastwood’s 1992 film “Unforgiven” is the last Western he directed and starred in, and he made it count. About an aging outlaw tasked with one final job, the film examines the myths of the West and how they’re perverted and distorted over time, as well as the contradictions within established national archetypes. It’s arguably Eastwood’s defining masterpiece, and one of the very best films of the 90s. See it immediately.

2. “Dazed and Confused” (available October 1)

The 1993 cult classic “Dazed and Confused

Dax Shepard to write and co-direct Scooby-Doo animated movie S.C.O.O.B.

Variety is reporting that Dax Shepard (Hit and Run) is in talks with Warner Bros. to co-direct their upcoming Scooby-Doo animated feature S.C.O.O.B. alongside Tony Cervone (Space Jam). He will also pen the screenplay alongside Matt Lieberman (Dr. Doolittle: Tail to the Chief).

Best known for acting work in the likes of Without a Paddle, Idiocracy and Parenthood, Shepard has recently directed the action-comedy CHiPS for Warner Bros., which was overseen by executive Jesse Ehrman, who has reportedly brought him on board for Mystery Inc’s return to the big screen.

Although plot details on the Scooby-Doo movie are being kept under wraps, it was revealed earlier this year that the film will be titled S.C.O.O.B., and is said to be “the first step in “unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera universe.”

S.C.O.O.B. is set for release on September 21st

New Netflix Movie and TV Titles for October

New Netflix Movie and TV Titles for October
In a blink of an eye it’ll be October. The air will turn crisp, the leaves will turn beautiful shades of orange, and you’ll get to crack out your favorite sweatshirt (unless you live in Los Angeles like me, in which case it’ll be 90 and you’ll sweat involuntarily). But rather than playing outside, what you really want to do is watch Netflix. October presents a whole new list of viewing opportunities with classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Patton. If you choose to skip a day of work, what could be better than Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Snow Day? And then there are no shortage of Netflix originals that are being added. The ones I’m looking most forward to are Mascots from Christopher Guest (Spinal Tap, Best in Show) and the third season of the under-appreciated Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. For

Dax Shepard: Jason Bateman Convinced Me to Marry Kristen Bell!

He’s a lucky guy with a gorgeous wife, and Dax Shepard credits his buddy Jason Bateman with giving him the extra push he needed to settle down with Kristen Bell.

During an interview with People, the “Without a Paddle” hunk explained, “Jason was the first to go, ‘Stop f*cking around and marry Kristen,’” adding that the “Arrested Development” stud also encouraged procreation.

Motioning to Bateman, Dax continued, “You immediately transitioned into 'Get her pregnant.’ I would say you were at the very forefront of cracking the whip on that. And you were dead right." Shepard and Bell currently have a two-year-old daughter named Lincoln and an 11-week-old daughter named Delta.

A Ten-Year Anniversary (2004-2014): Top 10 Cinematic Duds from Yesterday

Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers

Elizabeth Banks Is Desperate in Our Exclusive Red Band 'Walk of Shame' Preview (Video)

Elizabeth Banks just wanted to borrow someone's phone, okay?

In this exclusive (and very R-rated) clip for "Walk of Shame," Elizabeth Banks's character, Meghan, is lost and trying to make a phone call after a particularly eventful evening. See also: the title of the movie. In modern parlance, the walk of shame is what one does after having intimate relations with another person that they've just met. A walk of shame is usually done in one's clothes and/or makeup from the night before, unless it's Halloween, in which case the walk of shame is done in one's Halloween costume.

Unfortunately for Meghan, her walk of shame is much more complicated. The recognizable TV reporter has to navigate Los Angeles without cash, a car, her phone, or even her ID. And she has to do it in time to make a really important job interview for a network news anchor gig!

Elizabeth Banks Causes Trouble in 'Walk of Shame' Red Band Trailer

Following a somewhat underwhelming trailer earlier this year for the comedy Walk of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks, a second red band trailer offers a slightly better look at the comedy. While the terrible audio editing in the first half of the trailer is thoroughly distracting, Banks shines as she runs around Los Angeles, trying to get her car back in order to make it to the most important job interview of her career as a news anchorwoman. Meanwhile, her one-night-stand James Marsden and friends Gillian Jacobs and Sarah Wright are in hot pursuit, trying to end her long night from hell with a happy ending. Watch below! Here's the new red band trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Us Magazine: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, Drillbit Taylor, Without a Paddle).

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Take Their Fight to the Paparazzi

They’ve always been critical of the celebrity photography industry, and Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard went toe-to-toe with two representatives from the paparazzi realm.

During a debate on “Access Hollywood,” the “Veronica Mars” starlet and her “Without a Paddle” husband faced off against Steve Ginsburg and Christian Zimmerman from Akm/Gsi and things got pretty heated.

Bell described a common scenario during which she gets surrounded by 10 photographers at night at Lax while carrying her daughter Lincoln, calling it “terrifying.”

Shepard chimed in, “If you don’t have an ethical issue with that, then I don’t think you have ethics.”

From the other side, Zimmerman called Kristen’s term “pedorazzi” (photographers who snap shots of celebrity kids without authorization) “hysterical.”

And Ginsburg tried to be fair to both sides, noting “Photographers need to be regulated,” though he wasn’t clear on how those rules would be determined and enforced.

Elizabeth Banks Takes An Epic Walk Of Shame In New Trailer

Every adventurous college student is familiar with the walk of shame, to the point where stumbling back to one’s dorm in disheveled clothing after a night on the town is considered a rite of passage by many. However, most one night stands don’t result in as much trouble as Elizabeth Banks’s does, in the appropriately titled Walk of Shame.

The first trailer for the film, which you can check out below, was released today and it gives us a peek at her truly disastrous morning after:

Banks plays aspiring reporter Meghan Miles (Banks), who encounters many obstacles as she attempts to make the trek from the home of a random hook-up (James Marsden) through downtown L.A. to get to the most important job interview of her career.

It’s nice to see Banks taking on a leading role for the first time in what feels like a long while.

Watch: Elizabeth Banks Has Hellish One Night Stand in 'Walk of Shame'

While Elizabeth Banks has mostly been relegated to meaty supporting roles in films like People Like Us, The Hunger Games, The Next Three Days and Role Models, this time she's taking the lead on the comedy Walk of Shame. It's a classic race against time as Banks plays a local news reporter who has the sudden opportunity to become a network news anchor. The only problem is after her car is towed following a one night stand (with James Marsden), she has no phone, ID or money, and finds herself stranded and desperate to make it to the interview. This trailer reminds me of that movie Trojan War from 1997 with "Boy Meets World" star Will Friedle looking everywhere for a condom. And that's not a compliment. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Yahoo: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds,

Dax Shepard Reveals Low-Budget Wedding with Kristen Bell on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

He’s a man madly in love, and Dax Shepard couldn’t shut up about his beautiful wife Kristen Bell while chatting with Jimmy Kimmel last night (October 28).

The “Without a Paddle” star declared that his Beverly Hills County Clerk’s Office nuptials on October 17th made him the “luckiest man in America.”

Shepard explained, "It was just Kristen and I at this lonely courthouse so they brought us this cake afterwards."

Apparently the cake had “The World’s Worst Wedding” written on it- “How many people can say they threw 'The World's Worst Wedding?'" asked Dax.

Of his experience at Kimmel’s own wedding over the summer, Shepard stated, "There were helicopters overhead. It felt like an episode of M*A*S*H," he recalled of Kimmel's big day. Not that I was counting your money, but I was counting your money at this thing. It was flying out the windows.

The Bridge: Matthew Lillard Deserves Applause For His Performance In “Old Friends”

  • Boomtron
I don’t often bring up Matthew Lillard’s part in The Bridge’s overarching storyline beyond whatever small part he might have gotten up to in the latest episode. This isn’t because I dislike Lillard or his portrayal of Daniel Frye – far from it. Rather, his role in Tate’s plans has seemed so small in comparison to more pressing matters that I don’t usually feel compelled to mention him aside from in passing. But “Old Friends” has forced my hand; I can no longer ignore Lillard’s performance. In the past, I’ve never known Lillard to be much of an actor. My exposure to him was limited to such light-hearted affairs as Scooby-Doo and Without a Paddle. I saw him in the terrifically heart-wrenching The Descendants, where he was far less used for comedy, but his part was so small he barely made a mark on me.
