5 Films to Watch on Netflix ASAP Vol. 2 / Carmen Varner // Lifestyle Blogger & Social Media + Blogging Coach


5 Films to Watch on Netflix ASAP Vol. 2

Want to kick back and watch the boob tube? At the same time, you don't want to waste 20 minutes attempting to decide. When you finally choose something, you regret it 90 seconds later when you realize it was the worst movie choice ever. Back by popular demand, I created a second 5 Films To Watch On Netflix ASAP.

Netflix is wishy washy. Some films or shows are available for streaming forever, while some are terribly temporary. Watch these films before they're gone & you have to watch a bad pixelated version on some knock off sight. Without further adieu...

1. Kill Bill (1 & 2)

I was super psyched when this came on Netflix. Kill Bill is one of my all-time favorite films, so having access to it no matter whose house I'm at or what device I'm on is utter perfection. I've converted a few friends to becoming Kill Bill-oholics as well. It's gory, so beware. The story revolves around an assassin (Uma Thurman) & her journey to murder her ruthless employer. You need to see it to really enjoy it though; no description does it justice. It's action-packed, kickass, & captivating. Perfect for girls night (if you aren't in the mood for a rom-com), boys night, or date night! 

2. Blackfish

Blackfish is a really thought-provoking documentary on the life of Tilikum, an orca aka killer whale, who caused several deaths while in captivity. The documentary delves deep into the life of performing Sea World animals. It's a brain tickling film. Expect to be shocked & possibly disturbed at the lives these animals live. After all, no pool can ever be as big as the ocean. 

3. Grease

Can't go wrong with this classic. The film stars a young & handsome John Travolta & the always lovely Olivia Newton-John. The movie revolves around greaser Danny & good girl Sandy, & their forbidden summer of love & thereafter. I think musicals are funny. Why are they randomly singing & dancing in class? I guess it's part of the experience. Make some popcorn & sing along.

4. Don Jon

Don Jon sports a pretty A-list cast. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, & Julianne Moore star throughout this comedy/drama/romance film. Gordon-Levitt plays Jon who is your average New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, & church....& well, porn. He meets hot, sexy Barbara, played by Johansson, & wants to get with her. You basically see the characters develop & the story unravel as the film goes on. Can Jon stop his addiction? Or will he throw it all way to watch one more big-breasted porn star? You'll just hafta watch & see.

5. Jumanji

Yesss! I loved Jumanji as a kid. Jumanji is magical board game that two kids find. Once they start, they're in for a surprise. Why? For one, when they initially began the game they released a man who'd been trapped for decades within the game. Let's just say the board game makes some crazy thing happen in real life. Watch this to relive you childhood or watch with your own children, friends, or family.

Switch it up. Stop watching reruns of the same old shows & take a look at one of these films instead. These movies are perfect for a summer gathering with friends. Have a movie marathon, eat some munchies, & sip on a mimosa & you're good to go.

Have you seen any of these films? Which one will you watch first? :]

  4. Great movies! Thanks for the recommendations!!! I love Jumanji and Grease :)
    Great post!


  5. Grease, no, can't go wrong with that one. And Don Jon, I had a blast watching it. Blackfish has been on my list for quite a while now, but I'm a bit hesitant since I hear a lot of people saying it's shocking...

    1. Blackfish is shocking, which is exactly why you ought to watch it. :]

  6. Hah Jumanji, that brings back memories :-) As a kid I always hoped to one day find a real Jumanji game! As for Blackfish, I watched it and it was definitely an eye opener.

  7. I did not watched Don Jon, but will have to do it. Great post.

  8. Thanks for the tips! I loved Blackfish, such a good documentary!!!

  10. Haha love this post and LOVE Netflix! That site is my drug and I am happily addicted to it. Thanks to Netflix, I TV binge on the daily and admit to staying in my room for undue amounts of time so I can watch more episodes of something. I've watched all of those movies except for Blackfish which I have been meaning to watch! Grease is definitely one of my fav musicals, always love Kill Bill, and Jumanji is just a blast from the past! haha

    1. Yeah, me & the boyfriend spend out nights unwinding just watching good ole Netflix. :]

  11. I am obsessed with Netflix and try and always make time to binge watch some of my favourite TV shows, however I haven't used it much for films. I watched the Blackfish documentary and thought it was really interesting, and I think I've Grease enough times hah - but I think I will check out Don Jon! Thanks for the suggestion!

    1. Don Jon is awesome but I totally recommend Kill Bill! :]

  12. Blackfish is so good! I was so glad I watched it, really opened my eyes. Really want to go and watch jumanji now! xx
