As we approach the weekend, you might be looking for something exciting to do while staying indoors. If you are a movie lover, Netflix is the perfect solution for your entertainment needs. With countless options of movies and TV shows to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide which ones to watch. Here are three best Netflix movies to watch (and two to skip) this weekend.
1. I Care A Lot
If you’re in the mood for a thriller, I Care A Lot is the perfect choice for you. The movie stars Rosamund Pike, who plays the role of Marla Grayson, a con artist who makes a living by convincing a court that elderly people are no longer capable of taking care of themselves. Once she has their legal guardianship, she swindles them out of their life savings. Her world comes crashing down when she tries to take advantage of Jennifer Peterson, a wealthy retiree with more secrets than Marla bargained for. This gripping story will have you glued to the screen until the very end.
2. The Mitchells vs. The Machines
If you’re in the mood for a fun, animated movie, The Mitchells vs. The Machines is the perfect choice for you. The story follows an ordinary family, the Mitchells, who have to save the world when a rogue AI takes over all technology. The quirky family dynamics and the beautiful animation make this movie a treat for both adults and kids. If you’re looking for a light-hearted and entertaining movie, you can’t go wrong with The Mitchells vs. The Machines.
3. The Devil Below
If you’re looking for a horror movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat, The Devil Below is the perfect choice for you. The movie follows a group of researchers who venture into the Appalachian Mountains in search of a missing person, only to discover that they are not alone. The creepy atmosphere and the jump scares make this movie perfect for horror fans. If you’re ready to be scared out of your wits, put on The Devil Below.
1. Fifty Shades Darker
While you may be tempted to revisit this trilogy, we recommend that you skip Fifty Shades Darker this weekend. The movie, based on a popular novel, follows the turbulent relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. However, the plot feels forced, and the acting falls short. Instead of spending your precious time on this movie, try one of the other exciting options on Netflix.
2. The Kissing Booth 2
If you’re in the mood for a romantic movie, we recommend that you skip The Kissing Booth 2 this weekend. The movie rehashes the same old plot of the first movie, where Elle has to choose between two guys. The jokes feel tired, and the characters lack depth. Instead of subjecting yourself to this movie, try one of the other exciting options on Netflix.
In conclusion, these are our top three picks of movies to watch and two to skip on Netflix this weekend. Whether you’re looking for something exciting, fun, or scary, there’s something for everyone on Netflix. So, grab some popcorn, put on your comfy clothes, and enjoy a weekend of binge-watching.
