Best New Originals: October 2020

The Spanish Princess

After The White Queen and The White Princess took viewers through the War of the Roses and its aftermath, The Spanish Princess followed Catherine of Aragon, the woman who would become King Henry VIII’s first of six wives. The first half of the limited series followed Catherine as she left Spain to marry Arthur Tudor, and, after his death, his younger brother Henry. But as the latter half of the series will explore, just because Catherine is married to the king doesn’t mean her position is any safer than it was before between war, political intrigue, and the lack of a male heir.

Power Book II: Ghost

The Starz original series Power centered around a drug dealer named James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) who wanted to become a legitimate club owner. It ended earlier this year after six seasons, cementing its place among the best Starz originals.

The spinoff Power Book II: Ghost picks up right where the original series left off. It follows James’ son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.), balancing school, his personal life, and legal trouble after his mother is being charged with a murder he committed.

Best New Movies on Starz: October 2020

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves star as the titular Bill and Ted, two musicians who can’t play music to save their lives but whose music is destined to one day inspire a futuristic utopian society. But that could all go down the toilet if Bill and Ted don’t pass their history class, leading to a stranger (George Carlin) lending them a time machine so they can rope famous figures throughout history to help save their grades—and the future. What a most excellent film.

Bring It On

Bring It On may have sparked countless sequels and a musical, but the original film still comes off with the top prize. With Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union as the heads of two competing cheerleading teams, the discovery of a years-long theft of one team’s routine by another drives an even bigger wedge, making them each even more determined to win the nation’s top prize.

On the surface, Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 film about a small-town waitress and baker in an abusive marriage who has an affair with her obstetrician after getting pregnant doesn’t sound like it would be whimsical or sweet. But with Keri Russell and Nathan Fillion at the center of this indie dramedy, it sneaks up on you.
