Everything Coming to Netflix and Hulu in September 2019


Lord of the Rings Return of the King, Elijah Wood as Frodo

It seems impossible that we’re headed into September. Wasn’t it just the 4th of July? What the hell happened to August? I don’t have answers to these questions about the relentless march of time, but I do come bearing news of what’s headed to Netflix and Hulu for the start of jacket season in September.

As usual, I’ll be highlighting AND bolding my recommendations here, as well as properties I’m excited to see for the first time. Be sure to give us your advice for what to watch in the comments. As for real excitement here, it’s a delight to see the latter two Lord of the Rings movies popping up on Netflix, even if the superior film is Fellowship. Hulu, meanwhile, is bringing out the big guns with The Matrix films, the Lethal Weapons, some Evil Deads, Goonies, and many more.

What jumped out for you, watching-wise? Personally, I can’t wait to confuse my brain by watching Emma and Requiem for a Dream the same night.

The meantime, let us revisit one of the most epic moments of early 2000s cinema, with the spectacular Miranda Otto as Éowyn in Lord of The Rings: Return of the King.
