Quarantine: 10 best movies to watch on Netflix

In times of social isolation, driven by the pandemic of the new coronavirus, we’ve made a list of the 10 best movies available on Netflix for you to watch at home and not be bored during this entire period.

10th (2002)

Are you in the mood for a super light film, full of emotion and that holds you from beginning to end? Then this film is made for you!

Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, the plot tells the story of an 18 year old who is the master of disguises and uses his skills to plot millionaire scams, becoming the biggest bank robber in the United States only 17 years old, and who lives with an FBI agent on his tail to try to arrest him at all times.

9th (1985)

The perfect trilogy for those who want to spend the whole afternoon marathon! Featuring the impeccable performances of Michael J. Fox and Cristopher Lloyd, the film chronicles the adventures of a boy, Marty McFly, who is teleported to different times in history by the time machine built by his friend and scientist, Dr. Brown.

In each of the films, there is a story built in different years and contexts, in which he can travel both to the past and to the future.

8th (2003)

Time to add a more emotional film to that list, but which, at the same time, is super captivating and has a beautiful and unique story.

The story is based on a man, Edward Bloom, who is an accomplished storyteller and, throughout his life, has always told the most exaggerated and well elaborated.

Already old, he becomes very ill and his son, William, who is a journalist and does not have a good relationship with his father because he does not believe his stories, will take care of him. Thus, he begins to investigate the stories told by his father and begins to understand his mania for storytelling.

7th (2017)

Now it’s time for one of the best animations ever produced in the Netflix catalog. It tells the story of a young woman, Parvana, who lives in Afghanistan, under the control of the authoritarian Taliban government. One day, her father is imprisoned unfairly and she needs to disguise herself as a boy in order to be able to work and support her entire family.

6th (1994)

One of the masterpieces of director Quentin Tarantino, follows well the classic characteristics that his works have: a lot of action and violence. However, despite being a heavier film, it does not take its merit as a spectacular film, super well directed and produced.

The plot is somewhat confusing. It tells the story of three criminals separately, at different times, but in some points of the narrative, they end up intersecting.

First we have a gunslinger who falls in love with his boss’s wife, then a boxer appears who goes bad in a fight and, to close the triangle, a couple tries to execute a robbery and the situation gets out of control. Only Tarantino to make these three points connect in the middle of a narrative.

5th (1994)

This is one of those productions that you end up falling in love with the criminal, you know? When the neighboring family ends up suffering a tragedy, León, a hit man, decides to take care of Mathilde, a 12-year-old girl who was the only survivor of the incident.

4th (2018)

Another Oscar-winning film for that list. A Netflix production, the work takes place in Mexico City, in the year 1970, and narrates the daily life of a traditional family in the city, emphasizing the vision of the nanny and housekeeper who, in reality, is responsible for controlling all home and routine. During the year, a series of events causes changes in the collective and personal life of each of the characters.

3rd (2008)

A musical of the highest quality to liven up your afternoon and leave all of Abba’s songs stuck to your head, which uses an incredible cast to portray the story of Sophie, a bride who invites her mother’s three ex-boyfriends to her wedding in hope of finding out who your biological father is.

2nd (1977)

Simply the best trilogy of all time. Do you have plenty of time and a good head to watch? So it’s worth investing in these three films that, together, portray the struggle of a mafia family to secure their supremacy in the United States, right after World War II.

1st (1989)

There are not enough words to describe the mastery of this film (it is my favorite film, I pull “sardines” for him whenever possible, but I have reasons for that).

In the work, Robin Williams plays an English teacher from an extremely traditional boys-only school, where he uses unorthodox methods to reach his students, who face enormous pressure from their parents and the institution itself.

We know that running countless marathons on platforms will not put an end to the boredom of quarantine. But, in periods like this, it is essential to take care of mental health and keep your mind occupied to stay healthy and in the hope of improving everything so that, soon, we can start organizing parties with friends again.
