Netflix plans to add 33 new movies on October 1, including some crowd-pleasing favorites that you will want to watch even if if you’ve already seen them.

The new films will include Fargo (pictured above), the 1996 Oscar-winning film from the Coen Brothers that’s based on a real-life kidnapping and murder (not!) in Minnesota. William H. Macy and Frances McDormand (wife to Joel Coen) turn in career performances as a bumpkin car salesman and pregnant police chief respectively, and Steve Buscemi and Peter Stomare are equal parts funny and creepy as two kidnappers who bungle the job. This is comedy as black as a 6 a.m. 7-Eleven coffee and no film buff should wait another day before seeing it. Brilliant, brilliant stuff from all involved. You betcha!

Also notable on October 1: Her, the 2013 Spike Jonze-directed satire of modern-day urban alienation, starring Joaquin Phoenix who falls in love with the voice of his artificial intelligence device. (Scarlett Johansson is the voice so we shouldn’t be too surprised.); Basic Instinct, the 1992 sexy murder mystery with Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone playing the cat-and-mouse leads; and The Longest Yard, the underrated 1974 prison drama starring Burt Reynolds as a former quarterback who’s forced to assemble a team to play a bunch of psychopaths. Yes, the guards.
