The best new movies on Netflix in October 2014

Django Unchained

The warm weather may be lingering, but a temperature shift is surely on the horizon. As you prepare to be driven indoors to your warm blankets and hot mugs of tea, why not familiarize yourself with one of the finest (virtual) comforts of all—the latest Netflix titles. The streaming service has just announced what movies and TV shows will be newly available come October. Time Out New York's Film team recommends the following:

Django Unchained (2012) Rescued slave Jamie Foxx goes on a roaring rampage of revenge in Quentin Tarantino's epic Western, which also gives a plumly evil supporting role to Leonardo DiCaprio as the meanest plantation owner you ever saw.

Paths of Glory (1957) Stanley Kubrick's anti-war masterpiece stars Kirk Douglas as a WWI colonel caught in the moral crossfire of a botched battle, after which a vicious example is made of three of his men. 

Annie (1982) The little orphaned redhead came to the bigscreen in this colorful musical adaptation directed by John Huston. Carol Burnett is an absolute delight as the villainous Ms. Hannigan.

Romeo + Juliet (1996) Swoon all over again with Baz Luhrmann's stylized, MTV-like adaptation of William Shakespeare's famed romance, the film that made stars of Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. 

Tombstone (1993) The great Kurt Russell is lawman Wyatt Earp in this action-packed retelling of the gunfight at the OK Corral. Val Kilmer nearly steals the show as Earp's tubercular sidekick Doc Holliday.
