Movies To Watch During The Lockdown Period (For Grown Folks Only)
Whiles under lockdown, we at klagons.com thought we could bring you some fan just so you dont get bored.
We have listed below some amazing movies you can watch below:
City of God
Fernando Meirelles’s coming-of-age tale follows a group of young men in a Rio de Janeiro favela as their lives intertwine with the gritty underworld of organized crime.
The Talented Mr. Ripley
In the age of the massive grift, The Talented Mr. Ripley is a perfect film. Set in Italy, imagine if Cruel Intentions were more prestige and took place mostly on a boat. It’s a fun thriller that turns class structure on its head in the sexiest way possible.
Silver Linings Playbook
David O. Russell’s bittersweet comedy about mental illness is one of the best of the past decade. Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, the film tackles the struggle of loss, the joy of finding new love, and the very complicated path that is being a Philadelphia Eagles fan. Go birds.
Life After Beth
If you need a break from straight up horror, there’s always the surprisingly endearing zombie movie, Life After Beth. Starring Aubry Plaza as a teenage girl who falls ill to a sickness that leads to her death, she comes back as a zombie who then wavers between human behavior and, you know, eating people.
Wow, Ryan Gosling is a man in Drive. It seems that every young heartthrob has a film that involves masculine energy and cars, and this is his. Playing a stuntman and getaway driver, he dares to venture away from his normal—if you can call it that—life for a new neighbor who turns out to be more trouble than the situation is worth.
The Shawkshank Redemption
Sorry, but there is no better prison film better than Shawshank Redemption. Deeply affecting, the Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman feature chronicles the story of a man framed for murder and the friendship that he forms with another inmate named Red.
Velvet Buzzsaw is a glorious mess. Part gay fantasia, part art snobbery, and part horror, the film manages to be so uneven and ridiculous that it’s a perfectly acceptable wild ride. Bonus: Toni Collette is perfect.
Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Yeah, it’s hard to believe, but the best Spider Man movie in ages is an animated film, and it manages to breathe new life into a franchise that is already doing pretty dang well for itself.
The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)
Let it be noted: Adam Sandler can be a good actor. This literally had Oscar buzz. An Oscar. For Adam Sandler.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before came out after Set It Up to prove that Netflix knows how to put together a rom-com. Based on the book of the same name, the film is a pitch perfect look at what the rom-com genre can be in 2018.
Always Be My Maybe
In this rom com, two childhood sweethearts reconnect after years apart, and as you can imagine… the sparks return. But the most important part is that Ali Wong and Randall Park are incredible at carrying a rom-com.
Beasts of No Nation
Beasts of No Nation, a war film released in 2015, was one of Netflix’s first bona fide award contenders. Though it didn’t fully get off the ground, it was a great vehicle for Idris Elba and an even better flex for Netflix.
The story of President Barack Obama was always going to be clamored over, and though multiple films have come out about the president’s life, Barry is proof that Netflix can do a decent job with a biographical film.
In her most vulnerable outing to date, Taylor Swift is featured in the Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, detailing the wild (and very public) ride the singer went on between creating Reputation and 1989.
Tallulah never got its due, but the Allison Janney/Ellen Page film follows a woman who takes a child from its irresponsible mother and raises it as her own.
Dolemite is My Name
There was a time when Eddie Murphy was one of the most famous actors (if not the most) in the world. And after over a decade of largely out-of-form work, it took Dolemite is My Name—where Murphy plays a struggling entertainer, full of heart and humor—to remind us of that.
I Lost My Body
In a category usually packed with children’s movies, I Lost My Body—the story of a… dismembered hand—was a pleasant surprise when it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Even though it didn’t take home the Oscar (it still takes a hell of an effort to dethrone Toy Story), the creative, weird, and brilliantly animated film is more than worth the watch.
Yes, we heard you: The Irishman is too long. Got it. If you’re willing to get over that, let us direct you to a holy grail of performances from Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, in another all-timer of a mob epic from the mind of Martin Scorsese.
The Two Popes
There are few things that would make the film version of the complicated real-life relationship between Pope Benedict and Pope Francis a must-watch. Casting heavyweights Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, respectively, as the former (and current) leaders of the Catholic church is one of them.
In this moving film written and directed by Noah Baumbach, Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver portray an actress and stage director slogging through a grueling, bi-coastal divorce, which forces them to confront the long-held resentments that simmered throughout their marriage. Compassionate, funny, and deeply specific, Marriage Story is a portrait of how marriage changes us over time, and of how divorce turns us into our worst selves.
This Oscar-winning documentary follows the short life and career of Amy Winehouse. It’s an emotional depiction of the singer-songwriter’s talents, told by her family and friends who watched as her life spun out of control in the face of addiction.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
The Coen Brothers teamed up with the streaming service for this Netflix original, an anthology film featuring six stories set in the American west that’s full of outlaws, pioneer women, double-crossing, and one singing cowboy.
This heart-wrenching drama about a couple (played by Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams) looks at their relationship from all angles—and its realistic sex scenes almost earned it an NC-17 rating.
Decades after the still-unsolved murder of JonBenét Ramsey, director Kitty Green goes to Boulder, Colorado to cast local actors in a film about the murder—only to discover the lasting impact the little girl’s murder has left on the area’s residents.
