Netflix And Amazon Prime: Coronavirus is shutting theatres down but that doe not mean that you can not get entertainment elsewhere. When streaming giants like Netflix, HBO Max and Prime Video are around, then there is no shortage of content. Here are five movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime to take your mind off corona.
The Big Sick (Amazon Prime)
The Big Sick is based on Oscar-winning screenwriter Kumail Nanjiani’s romantic life. It follows the story of Nanjiani as a stand-up comedian who falls in love with an American student. When she falls into a comma, Nanjiani has to face her parents, who are not very approving of their relationship.
The Big Sick explores themes of cross-cultural romance without making it too heavy. Perfect for isolation day!
Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse (Netflix)
A good animation movie is always useful to take your mind off stressful pandemics. Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse mixes your favourite superhero with animation to give us one hell of a time. Strap on as you follow Miles Morales on his journey to become the hero that his city needs him to be. And Spider-Ham is always a reason to watch the movie.
Mission Impossible: Fallout (Amazon Prime)
Another new movie is now on Amazon Prime. The globally popular Mission Impossible series is making history with excellent stories one after the other. The latest of the series, Mission Impossible: Fallout does the same. It shows Ethan Hunt and his team on a journey full of twists and turns.
We won’t spoil the movie, but the climax will make you sweat, just saying.
Dolemite Is My Name (Netflix Original)
Dolemite Is My Name made headlines when it released. And rightly so, since it is one of the best movies on Netflix. Eddie Murphy delivers a sensational performance, one of the best in his career. The movie follows the real-life story of Rudy Ray Moore, who makes a low-budget film to bring his alter-ego Dolemite to the masses.
The creativity and aesthetic of the film will get you hooked on!
A Quiet Place (Amazon Prime)
Since you can not watch the sequel because many theatres are closed, you can still revisit the first instalment of A Quiet Place. A Quiet Place follows the journey of a family in a post-apocalyptic world, trying to survive dangerous creatures. Also, horror movies are suitable for a distraction since you will be too busy screaming.
