So get your bowl of popcorn and check out these wonderfully crafted tales:
⌛1h 30min⭐3.6 /5
Remember those choose-your-adventure books that you had as a kid? Netflix is bringing back that same experience to their streaming platform with Bandersnatch. With a branching narrative and multiple mind-bending endings, this is one interactive movie that changes its plot every time you watch it.
Bird Box (2018)
⌛2h 4min⭐3.3 /5
By this time, you might have heard about this movie through all the memes and jokes online. However, the movie is definitely not something to be laughed at. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the movie is about its blindfolded characters trying to escape some invisible creatures who can make you suicidal if you see them.
Taking the Cannes Film Festival by storm, this movie tells the tale of a giant, genetically-engineered pig and a plucky young Korean girl who will do whatever it takes to save it. Breath-taking cinematography, huge star cast, and moral tale make this movie worth watching.
⌛1h 22min⭐3.2 /5
When it comes to breaking the mold, nothing comes close to this flick. Wheelman is a well-oiled entry into that oddly specific crime subgenre of ‘Stoic Getaway Driver Caught in a Crime Gone Awry’ films. It’s more like Drive, but only with a sloppy car and more guns.
Gerald’s Game (2017)
Gerald’s Game is very simple in its premise. When her husband’s sex game goes wrong, Jessie is left handcuffed to a bed in a remote lake house. Tapping on the basic fears in oneself, this horror movie is about how far a person will go to stay alive.
Game Over, Man! (2018)
This action-comedy is from the creators of Workaholics paying homage to the classic action film Die Hard. If that isn’t enough reason for you to watch this movie, then you are definitely missing out on a hell lot of fun.
Outlaw King (2018)
For anyone who is missing out on the GOT-style bloody medieval times, this one is your pick. Outlaw King has everything from oceans of mud, truckloads of guts and misty, unconsidered nationalism. So what are you waiting for?!
Unicorn Store (2017)
First aired at Toronto Film Festival, Unicorn Store marks the directorial debut of Captain Marvel star Brie Larson. The whimsical theme and great performances from some huge stars make this movie instantly adored. Stream it and you too will fall for it.
The Christmas Chronicles (2018)
The Christmas Chronicles is a family Christmas adventure film from producer Chris Columbus- the person who made your favorite movies Home Alone and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Watch this one and it will also make it to your favorite list.
