Hey Everyone, Hope all are fine. I am stuck inside , You’re also stuck inside, everybody’s stuck inside. And whether working from home or just chilling, it’s good to take a cinematic break when you’re social distancing during the coronavirus crisis.
Quarantine has become a necessary part of daily routines due to the spread of coronavirus.
Lots of people are looking for ways to pass the time. Most people already know that movies are the best cure for boredom.
They always have been. But with COVID-19 spreading and self-quarantine increasing, you might find yourself spending hours scrolling through Netflix looking for something, anything, worth watching.
There are great films out , So I decided to put together a list of the 10 best movies streaming right now that you watch during quarantine.
1. Some Like it Hot (Amazon Prime)
We could all use a laugh in these hectic times. And we can always use the breath of fresh air that is Billy Wilder. His well dressed comedy, Some Like it Hot, might not be able to cure a pandemic, but it can certainly ail our dismay for a couple of hours. Thanks to a bouquet of wonderful performances—mainly from Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe—this tale of crossdressing musicians has earned its reputation as the Great American Comedy. It really is perfect.
2. Gravity (Warner Bros)
In Alfonso Cuarón’s thriller, Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, whose first trip into space leaves her stranded by herself. While Stone’s predicament is anxiety-inducing, her trip taps into the awe-inducing wonder of the galaxy that surrounds us and the rush of self-sufficiency when faced with unimaginable challenges.
3. 127 Hours (2010)
Based on the true story of mountain climber Aron Rolston, 127 Hours depicts the (yep, you guessed it) 127-hour-long saga of how a man (played by James Franco) saves his own life by cutting off his arm after it gets trapped under a boulder. Not the most pleasant way to spend time alone, but a story of courage and mental and physical toughness, nonetheless.
4. Virus (2019)
This Indian film is based on the true events surrounding the 2018 Nipah virus outbreak in Kerala and the local community’s mobilization effort to stop the spread. (Available on Amazon Prime.)
5. The Mandalorian
The Mandalorian, also known as Star Wars: The Mandalorian, is an American space Western web television series created by Jon Favreau and released on Disney+. It is the first live action series in the Star Wars franchise. Set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and 25 years prior to the events of The Force Awakens, it follows the title character, the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin, and his exploits beyond the reaches of the New Republic.
6. The Innocent Man (2018)
Based on John Grisham’s first nonfiction book, the documentary focuses on two different murders that took place in a small town in Oklahoma in the 1980s. Two of the men convicted of the crimes claim their innocence, and as Grisham and the filmmakers comb over the investigations, parallels begin to emerge.
7. Daniel Blake
Nearly 20 percent of workers have lost their jobs due to the virus. So lots of people could use a source of inspiration. In Ken Loach’s masterpiece, which won the Palme D’or in 2016, that inspiration is Daniel. An everyman trying to make sense of nonsensical job benefits, Daniel finds humanitarian warmth in the frigid town of Newcastle. How? A sense of humor and a good heart go a long way. Those attributes also go a long way in I, Daniel Blake. A work of great compassion, Loach’s film builds toward an emotional climax as permanent as graffiti on a blank wall.
8. 28 Days Later (2002)
The seminal ‘running zombie’ movie from Danny Boyle finds a place on the list, where other zombie films may not because of its clarity that the outbreak is caused by animals infected with a virus These aren’t reanimated undead, but sick people. The virus is nicknamed ‘rage’ and sees the infected become insanely violent and highly contagious. Our hero is Cillian Murphy, unaware of the virus because of a stint in hospital in a coma, who finds London a deserted wasteland just 28 days after the outbreak began.
9. The Wolf Of Wall Street
The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 American biographical black comedy crime film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Terence Winter, based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort. It recounts Belfort’s perspective on his career as a stockbroker in New York City and how his firm, Stratton Oakmont, engaged in rampant corruption and fraud on Wall Street, which ultimately led to his downfall.
Leonardo DiCaprio, who was also a producer on the film, stars as Belfort, with Jonah Hill as his business partner and friend, Donnie Azoff, Margot Robbie as his wife, Naomi Lapaglia, and Kyle Chandler as FBI agent Patrick Denham, who tries to bring Belfort down.
10. 12 Monkeys (1995)
In Terry Gilliam’s masterful sci-fi fable, an unbalanced prisoner named Cole (Bruce Willis) is sent back in time to 1996 from 2035, where the remnants of humanity live underground. His mission: to find and procure a sample of the virus that wiped out civilization so that future scientists can study it and find a cure. Based on the French short film La Jetee, 12 Monkeys is about the way that human intellect and emotion can distort time and reality, and its vision of a fading society buried underground by the spread of a pathogen is a chilling central metaphor.
