Netflix is one of the closest friends many of us have, especially during this lockdown period. Want to be plugged with elite content? Say no more!
We have compiled a list of 8 EPIC movies/ series/ reality TV shows you should watch if you still haven’t.
Too Hot To Handle
If you have a Netflix account and you didn’t click on the reality TV show the moment it popped on your screens, you have a serious problem- UNLESS you don’t like sexual scenes. The dating reality show had 10 hot singles take a challenge of refraining from any sexual activities for a mere 100 000 USD which they weren’t aware of when they entered. Things went WILD, rules were broken and that is what made it fun. Overall, the show was to teach young people to create genuine connections instead of their usual flings- kiss and sex.
The Overcomer Movie
This movie is a profound and inspiring movie about a young girl with Asthma who joins a cross country team and most importantly, finds her identity in Christ. The young girl grew up believing that she was an orphan and lived with her grandmother who fed her these lies and later to find out that her father has been laying on his death bed. I sobbed through the whole movie.
Aj and the Queen
Aj and the Queen is a show about Robert, a drag queen who performs as Ruby Red, who meets Aj, a troubled and abandoned child turned thief. The show follows their travels when Robert finds Aj in his van while on his way to Texas. The 2 are opposites, with Robert very self-aware while Aj is still figuring out who she is. It’s hilarious and has just the right amount of drama, definitely a must watch!
This is a movie of 6/7 international operatives that fake their deaths to live their wildest dreams and fight injustices without a trace. A highlighting feature in this movie, is how Seven, defies the odds and makes them all believe that they are a family. This exceptional movie serves as a reminder that we only have one life and we should use the time allocated to us to live our lives to the fullest. YOLO. There is nothing to loose, but so much to gain.
Michelle Obama’s Becoming
As if the book “Becoming” was not enough, Michelle Obama has decided to take us aback with the documentary by the same name. Therein she shares her life story, as a lawyer, becoming First Lady, racism and life in the White House. Her statement, “opening up to each other and sharing our stories are what break barriers” teaches us two significant things: sheer authenticity and unabashed vulnerability.
The Last Dance – Michael Jordan
As called by Coach Phil Jackson, “The Last Dance” allows us to understand why Michael Jordan is such a legend, particularly from his level of hard work and perseverance. It also serves to reintroduce and offer an intimate look at how Jordan and Chicago Bulls dominated the sports sphere in the 90s. This documentary is interestingly unique: it works for both die-hard and non-fans.
Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever is your typical Netflix Teen show. The show follows the life of Devi, which is pretty complicated. The 10-Part series takes us through most of Devi’s stickiest situations, which most of us can relate to. Devi experiences, jealousy, becoming sexually active, drinking alcohol, being a bad friend, lying and major fights with her mother which all eventually lead to growth, becoming more self-aware and learning how to apologize.
