There’s no better way to chill out on a Sunday than with a good Netflix movie. If you’ve been scrolling through the streaming platform with no idea what to watch next, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few fun films to check out.
If you’re looking for an inspiring movie that will get you into the gym on Monday morning while simultaneously making you ugly cry, Southpaw is the perfect film. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams, the film is a story of a fallen hero looking to pick himself back up again and does a fantastic job of keeping the audience hooked.
Someone Great (2019)
Starring the always talented Gina Rodriguez, this fun rom-com will have you laughing, crying and wanting to call your girlfriends. The film gives us a peek into how difficult it can be when breaking up with someone you thought was ‘forever,’ along with the all-important stuff: finding work/life balance is hard when you’re just starting.
Bad Trip (2020)
Sundays shouldn’t be about silently crying at the thought of a new work week, but it should be a time of fun and laughter. Bad Trip is a pseudo-reality film that takes people’s real reactions and blends them into a hilarious storyline. Eric André, Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rel Howery do a fantastic job of carrying this movie.
Army of the Dead (2021)
Zack Snyder teams up with Dave Bautista to deliver an action-packed zombie film that will have you at the edge of your seat. The film is a remake of the 2004 classic Dawn of the Dead and features zombies who have evolved to be smart, faster and more organised, proving a challenge for modern-day humans. This is a great way to get your heart pumping on a quiet Sunday evening.
His House (2020)
While rom-coms and action-comedies are great ways to chill out on a Sunday evening, so are horrors, and His House will have you at the edge of your seat. The film follows a refugee couple from South Sudan who find their new housing in England is not all that it appears. It’s a great film that blends horror with thoughtful commentary on immigrant experience and trauma.
