Top 5 Netflix Original Movies to Watch Right Now (November)
We?ve gone through a slew of titles to assemble our Tipstor? Top 5 Netflix Originals lineup. So make sure you have some space in your queue for the following movies.
1. The Fundamentals Of Caring?(2016)
Paul Rudd is at his most charming and charismatic here. He plays a newly trained caregiver to a distant teenager with muscular dystrophy named Trevor. After some ice breaking, the two set out on a trip to see some of the most boring roadside attractions middle America has to offer. If you?re feeling down, this one will pick you up. Plus? it?s Paul Rudd. That dude is always a ray of sunshine.
2. Marriage Story?(2019)
Noah Baumbach?s star-studded divorce drama takes a look at messy breakups with Scarlett Johansson playing an actress and mother named Nicole, who is intent on separating from her stage director husband Charlie (Adam Driver). Laura Dern and Ray Liotta play their hard-hitting lawyers, who don?t help in diffusing the tension and resentment building between the pair when Nicole moves herself and their son across the country. It?s an intimate look at the emotional wreckage of a divorce and the struggle to put a family back together again, and it?s carried by some brilliant performances by Driver and Johansson.
3. To All The Boys I?ve Loved Before?(2018)
Netflix?s original flick is being hailed as the best teen rom-com of the decade and for good reason. The story stars Lana Condor as Lara Jean Covey, a junior in high school who tends to write her crushes love letters but never actually send them. After those same letters are anonymously sent, she?s forced to do damage control by carrying on a fake relationship with one of her former love interests. It?s a sweet, oddly empowering twist on the classic rom-com trope, and you won?t be able to scroll through Twitter without coming across a Peter Kavinsky stan account, thanks to this one.
4. Always Be My Maybe?(2019)
Ali Wong and Randall Park star in the latest rom-com from Netflix. This time around, the plot follows two childhood sweethearts who?ve spent the last 15 years apart and try to reconnect when one moves back home. Wong plays a successful chef opening a new restaurant in San Francisco while Park plays her former best friend still living at home and working for his dad. Both have some growing up to do, but the film eschews classic romcom tropes for bits that are funnier and more poignant than your average lighthearted fare.
5. Bird Box?(2018)
Sandra Bullock?s apocalyptic sci-fi saga has spawned more than just a ridiculous internet challenge, it?s also renewed our love for monster-driven thrillers. Sure, we never actually see the otherworldly beings that cause people to commit suicide if they open their eyes, but the danger they pose and the fear they instill is still viscerally real. Bullock plays a mother trying to protect her two young children and survive amidst a group of strangers with their own agendas and issues. The supporting cast in this one ? Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich, Sarah Paulson, and Tom Hollander ? are fantastic, which distracts from some of the more questionable story choices.
