So with the country still locked down people are probably using Netflix a lot more than they historically would do I thought i’d recommend some of the films I’ve watched in the past that are currently on Netflix. Many of my favourite films are not actually on Netflix, however I’ve chosen some I’ve really enjoyed in the past which are currently available to stream, so won’t cost you anything to watch if you are already subscribed to Netflix.
I’ve tried to choose films from different genres so theirs hopefully something for everyone, these are the films I came up with:
- Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
- The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009)
- Tomb Raider (2018)
- Jumanji (2017)
- Ex Machina (2014)
Kingsman is an action spy comedy film. The film follows the recruitment and training of Eggsy into a secret spy organisation where agents are members of the are the British elite. However Eggsy is a stereotypical british chav, so has a lot to learn.
The Taking of Pelham 123 is an American action thriller film. The film is about a train dispatcher (Denzel Washington) who is pressed into the role of negotiator after a criminal (John Travolta) hijacks a subway car full of passengers. I’ve not seen the 1974 version of this film, however the 2009 version has a really gripping story.
Tomb Raider is a 2018 action adventure film based on the 2013 video game of the same name and is a reboot of the Tomb Raider film franchise.
Following the disappearance of her father Lara makes a living as a bike courier. When she is arrested after a bike accident involving a police car, her farthers business partner posts her bail. Lara has never claimed her inheritance as she believes her father to still be alive, however if she does not claim it her father’s country estate will be sold off.
The film stars Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, who embarks on a perilous journey to her father’s last-known destination, hoping to solve the mystery of his disappearance.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a 2017 fantasy adventure / comedy film. It’s a modern sequel to the 1995 film Jumanji.
The story focuses on a group of teenagers who come across Jumanji which is now transformed into a video game twenty-one years after the events of the 1995 film. They find themselves trapped in the game as a set of avatars, seeking to complete a quest alongside another player who has been trapped since 1996. This is a film families of all ages will enjoy.
Ex Machina is a 2014 science fiction psychological thriller film that follows a programmer who is invited by his CEO to administer the Turing test (test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to or indistinguishable from that of a human) to an intelligent humanoid robot. However is all as it seems?
Hopefully you will enjoy some of the above recommendations, i’d like to think their is something on the list for everyone. However feel free to leave some additional recommendations in the comments below.
