Hello everyone, how is the lockdown going?, smoothly I hope, this too shall pass.
Normally, when we Google “what movie should I watch,” it’s either we get a fancy list of intellectual Oscar-nominated films no one has ever heard of or a bunch of “classic” movies from the ’80s that everyone pretends to like, but no one actually does (someone had to say it). This story is not that. Though, I am not a professional movie critic, but I do love movies and I have a lot of strong opinions on them.
So, if you’re looking for some normal-person movie recs to help pass the time while social distancing, check out my personal favorites that you should stream/download ASAP.
