Lots of things have been replaced by Netflix this year and we owe a huge thank you to the streaming platform for pulling through in 2020 by being the constant and the change we needed while we were stuck at home for months.
It’s a nice feeling knowing there’s always something new to watch on Netflix but sometimes you want to go back and watch the classics you’ve missed when life was hectic, on the go, and just plain too busy to spend three hours watching a film.
But this year we’ve been afforded LOTS of down time, so if you’re done watching all seasons of DARK, Good Girls, and Indian Match Making, check out these great films that are probably on your list but you haven’t gotten around to watch!
Scroll down below to check out which films
1. Da 5 Bloods
This Netflix original film directed by the legendary Spike Lee is about four African American war veterans returning to Vietnam to hunt for a buried treasure their fallen squad leader had hidden there years before. These film is an absolute must watch.
2. The Irishman
For all the mafia movie fans out there, The Irishman is the one for you. The fact that this movie stars Al Pacino, the original Godfather, Joe Pesci, AND Robert De Niro? And directed by Martin Scorsese? It’s what film dreams are made of. It’s a lengthy one being 3 hours and 30 minutes long so get comfortable and dive in!
3. Dolemite Is My Name
We see the legendary Eddie Murphy back on the big screen for this film based in the 1970s, this movie shows the journey of a washed-up musician who transforms himself into an icon. Totally captivating from beginning to end!
4. I Lost My Body
An animated French film will make for a very unique watch for all those who want to take a break from their usual fave genres and try something different! A hand severed from his owner tries to find its way back to him amidst a journey of his own.
5. Uncut Gems
This was the movie of the year hand down. The Weekend and Adam Sandler in one movie? YES PLEASE! Also, Adam Sandler completely KILLED it in this role as a jewelry store owner who tries to make the deal of the century with a total twist in the end. It’s an intense emotional roller coaster but totally worth it.
