We all love Netflix, right? Whether you need something to kill 30 minutes or a whole weekend, Netflix always seems to have the perfect show or movie just for the occasion. Here are a few of our favorites:
That funny-looking animated show that’s always on the front page of Netflix could very well be the funniest show on the platform. Starring John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph and Jordan Peele, Big Mouth tells the saga of a middle school full of children discovering their hormones and their “Hormone Monsters.” There’s two seasons worth of shows plus a Valentine’s Day special, so get to watching before Season 3 drops!
The animated series based on the game series of the same name is a beautiful animated tale of vampire hunters. The series stars Trevor Belmont, the main character of Castlevania III and his crew as he faces off against the Lord of Darkness himself, Dracula. Some protagonists from other Castlevania games make appearances, but we won’t spoil just who those folks might be.
Avengers: Infinity War
It’s time to get caught up with your Marvel movies before Avengers: Endgame drops April 26. Infinity War is the first half of the mightiest heroes’ fight against Thanos and the struggles the team faces before “The Snap,” the moment that changes the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever. Once you finish Infinity War, check out Ant-Man and the Wasp before the pair is pulled from Netflix and brought over to Disney’s streaming service.
This tongue-in-cheek Motley Crue biopic won’t be winning awards, but it’s brainless, stupid fun. The film is directed by Jackass creator Jeff Tremaine and stars Douglas Booth, Iwan Rheon, Colson Baker (better known as Machine Gun Kelly), and Daniel Webber as the famous hair metal foursome.
JoJos Bizarre Adventure
The first two seasons of the craziest anime on planet Earth have arrived to Netflix! JoJos Bizarre Adventure tells the tale of the Joestar family and their fight against evil. The first two series, Phantom Blood and Battle Tendancy, highlight Jonathan Joestar and Joseph Joestar, respectively, two very important characters to the overall JoJos lore. You won’t see any stands like in the newer series, but who says you need disembodied ghost guys to have a good time?
Train to Busan
The Korean thriller Train to Busan is a staple for any zombie movie fan. If you’re not the biggest horror fan, fear not - it’s really not that scary, just suspenseful. We don’t want to give away too much of the plot, but the gist is there’s a zombie outbreak on a train, and a group of regular people try to survive the undead onslaught.
Last but not least is Ip Man, a biopic about the titular character who happens to be Bruce Lee’s sensei. The film stars Donnie Yen as the martial arts grandmaster and details Man’s life up to the moment he meets Bruce Lee. There are three parts to the series with a fourth releasing sometime in 2019. No movie marathon is complete without a martial arts film and you could do much worse than Ip Man.
