Bored this weekend? why not try watching something off of this list.
I first watched this movie back when it released in 2017 and since then it has grown very popular on TikTok’s, movie recommendations. The movie is set in a dystopian future where each couple can only have one child. Like the name states they are all 7 sisters, and each sister is named after a day in the week; and on the day of their name, they can go outside but, only on that day. Without spoiling too much, complications happen resulting in one of the sisters going missing. It is a refreshing movie to watch and will definitely have you on the edge of your seat.
Casa de Papel (Money Heist)
One of the biggest shows on Netflix and if you haven’t seen it, what are you doing? This series has a huge following and was very popular during Halloween with, all the costumes taken from the series. The journey in which the story starts really grabs you in as a viewer, and you will learn the whole plan for the heist. The series is just so good but it does take a little for it to start picking up, but once it does, you will not be able to stop watching. Although the characters are criminals, you really forget that they are throughout the show, because you start to feel remorseful for them.
When I came across this series I immediately started binging it and couldn’t stop watching. The show follows 3 moms, 2 in which are sisters who are all, in a desperate of money. The story begins when they all made the mistake of robbing the wrong persons money. Eventually they get confronted by a gang member and this is where it starts to get hilarious. You now have 3 suburban raised women, doing work for hard gang members, it is without a doubt it’s going to get messy. It is an extremely comical series that you have definitely not seen before.
If you like murder, criminal and detective type series, you’re going to love Sinner. Instead of being a series in which follows a detective and all crimes, it is done a bit differently. In each season Detective Harry is faced with a different complex investigation, each time. When a crime scene is too suspicious and an investigation is too hard to pin on a suspect, our main character Harry is called. It is unlike any crime and murder series on Netflix as Harrys dark past, is also made to light in which helps him, solve these crimes.
I have never really been into the whole scary zombie or vampire killer series, but Vanessa VanHelsing is a badass to watch. Without again spoiling too much, she comes from a family of Vampire killers although also being a Vampire herself. The series is based in a dystopian future where Vampires rule the earth and all of humanity was wiped out and many are trying to survive. I love this series because she’s a strong female lean and it’s tough to come by well written characters, who are women.
Forget about the matrix, Altered Carbon really messes with your thoughts on the future and reality. The future in which you can live as long as you want, as long as your mind chip, doesn’t get destroyed. In this future you can have any body you ever wanted, even customizing your body or picking a body from a line of noted soldiers or fighters. I found that the concept of the show was really neat as it made it seem that humans, were just technology. It opens up with Takashi, our main character, who wakes up after hundreds of years not in his original body. Confused as to where his body is, he embarks on a mission to find out what happened to him, while also investigating a murder. It is a great sci-fi story to follow, I usually hate the sci-fi genre, but I couldn’t stop watching Altered Carbon.
Okay yes, I am very late on this show but once I did start watching it, oh my god? First of all, it is unlike any detective series I have ever seen. The main character who’s our notable FBI agent but also technically not an FBI agent, Will; has a perplex way of reliving crime scenes in order to find who committed thus crime. Also, from all the murder series I have ever watched, this was the goriest one and it will definitely make you turn your head from the screen. As a viewer who knows everything going on, it is so frustrating to see Will go through wrongful convictions knowing, who the real killer is. Hannibal Lecter is an extremely calculated man and so psychotic, there is never a dull moment in the series, you will always feel uneasy.
This series is still fairly new and only has one season consisting of five episodes but because it was a hit when it came out, there will be more to come. The story is based off of a character Arséne Lupin who is an extreme gentlemen and master of disguise; and was actually written in 1905 by Maurice Leblanc. Our main character read this book given to him and started to master disguising himself and being an extreme gentleman. He has committed a number of robberies but hasn’t gotten caught due, to how clever he is. It’s a very enjoyable thriller series with a dash of comedy in the mix, you will be rooting for Assane aka Lupin.
