Compare Broadband: Netflix Australia’s Must-Watch List of Movies 2020
- What to watch on Netflix in 2020
- Family movies
- Scary movies
A vast variety of movie and title genres are available on Netflix. You can watch comedy, dramas, reality TV shows, or fantasy titles anytime you want. What's interesting is you won’t run out of titles even if you watch continuously for 4 years, which is roughly 36,000 hours in one sitting.
However, it is ironic how the thing we were craving for back then becomes our problem now. With the enormous library that Netflix currently has, running out of titles or movies to watch is no longer the problem. The issue now is choosing what to watch.
Sure you can watch every movie in the library but you might end up getting disappointed. Truth is not all movies shown on Netflix are devastatingly good or can meet your expectations. Thus, we made this guide to help you save time in choosing movie titles, so you can spend more time watching than picking out from a very long movie list.
Here are some of our top picks in Netflix Australia. Read on.
- To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
- La la land
- Howl’s Moving Castle
- The Cabin in the Woods
- Baby Driver
- John Wick
- The Mummy
- How to Train Your Dragon
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
This is a love story-themed movie that gives different pricks and clicks in the heart. The story spins around the lovelife of a teenage girl named Lara Jean. However, this is no typical sweet puppy love storyline. The catch of the story is how the previous unsaid love stories of the main character were unexpectedly and unwantedly exposed, which caused a major drift in her life. Lara Jean used to write love letters for her love interests and kept them in a box. The letters were only meant to be read and seen by her. However, unknowingly, someone mailed them to each recipient. This led to unexpected revelations of past love and feelings, turning Lara's present life upside down.
Starring in the movie are Lana Condor, Noah Centineo, Yael Yurman, Israel Broussard, Janelle Parish, and John Corbett. If you are fond of love stories but are already fed up of the typical prince and princess storyline, this could be in for you. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before has a different way of touching your heart.
Do you want to watch apocalyptic movies but don’t have enough courage to do so? Zombieland can help you with that! The story is set on an apocalyptic time where zombies roam the world. However, this ain’t your usual dead-serious story of survival because the characters are hilarious! Having Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin as the main characters, this thrilling zombie encounter movie is given a twist of comedic atmosphere. The story is about a group with different personalities travelling the roads of America while killing Zombies with ways you won't even imagine. Through their adventures, the thrill and chill factor scales well with the comedic flavour added in each frame.
La la land
Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, this romantic and musical movie will make you sing of love like never before. The plot is a typical boy and girl love story—they meet, they hate each other, and then they finally fall in love with one another. What makes this romantic movie different is the jazzy and light atmosphere it portrays. The music perfectly fits the story, which heightens the emotions you feel whilst watching the movie. The acting is also very natural to the point that it will pull you in the story. If you are a fan of musicals and romance, this is the right choice for you.
Howl’s Moving Castle
Howl’s Moving Castle is one of the iconic movies of Studio Ghibli. Fantasy and love was perfectly combined in this story while keeping the theme with a pinch of realism. Sophie is a girl who was cursed to live in the body of an elder woman. She then met Howl who was known to be the eater of beautiful girls’ hearts. Howl’s Moving Castle spins and twists around the extraordinary form of love--dealing with sacrifices, saving each other unconditionally, and building what was broken while sprinkling it with magic and fantasy. Director Miyazaki has always been portraying in his works a love that is not ordinary. No kisses or hugs are needed for you to feel it.
The Cabin in the Woods
This is one of the best mystery-horror movies on Netflix. The story is about a group of college students who discovered something in the cabin they're staying at. It eventually led them to horrors brought by zombies gnawing for flesh. The supposedly fun vacation has suddenly turned into the nightmare they would wish to wake up from. But wait, there is something more surprising than the mysterious birth of the undead. You have to find it out yourself.
Baby Driver was surely produced with precision for its flawless shot scenes, perfect timing of effects, and swift music accompaniment. This is not a story about a baby or a child, rather the main character’s name is Baby. Played by Ansel Ergot, Baby works as the driver of a group of thieves. He has undeniably good maneuver of the 4 wheels providing good chase and drift scenes. The musical scoring also fits the action-packed movie. The lines are also slick with comedic punchlines thrown in the dialogue from time to time. If you love chasing scenes and action-packed movies, this would give you a good time.
Revenge becomes more fun, when John Wick does it. It all started when John’s best friend, a dog, was killed by Russian mobsters. The event happened just after her wife died. With all of these depressing events, he went mad and set off for vengeance. However, this man is nothing ordinary because he is a former killer-for-hire personnel. The movie is filled with intense and thrilling scenes. Not to spoil you, but one of the best scenes is when John Wick killed 3 men with just a pencil as his weapon. How did he do that? Watch the movie.
History, adventure, thriller, comedy, and romance—you’ve got them all bundled in The Mummy. The movie lets you uncover a bit Egyptian history and culture (although not all of the parts are historically accurate) with a touch of fantasy. The movie has fantastically laid out the story of a group of archaeologists who have discovered an Egyptian tomb that is not supposed to be opened. The discovery led to the resurrection of the long-dead Pharaoh, who is back to reclaim his kingdom. Starred in the movie are Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. If you are a fan of undead soldiers or flesh-eating beetles, this movie goes right in your watchlist.
How to Train Your Dragon
This movie teaches how being different or having different views is not a bad thing. How to Train Your Dragon is about how a dragon-killer tribe turned into a dragon-loving community. The shift started when the son of the chieftain, Hiccup, convinced his fellow vikings that dragons are not threats. The process sure was not easy, but he became successful in the end. You will surely fall in love with different types of dragons, especially with the star of the show—Toothless. The bonding of Toothless and Hiccup as they go on adventures will surely captivate your heart.
This doco will open your eyes to the real ugly face of the society. It speaks about how the long-existing racial discrimination that we thought was gone still exhales poison on the surface. The filmmaker, Ava DuVernay, will expose to you how justice becomes impartial and why the prison cells are filled mostly with African-Americans. This is inspired by the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment abolished slavery in US and ended forced service except as a conviction punishment. The movie is heavy and disturbing to watch but is a must-watch to open our eyes to the truth of the society. If you have the courage to face the disgusting side of the society, this might be ideal for you.
