All movies watched on Netflix May–Present
Five Really Great Movies on Netflix Right Now. The S Edition
- Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse. It’s a superhero film not hanging out on the Disney+ platform! The animation is amazing! It’s also funny!
- Stranger Than Fiction. A film that warms the cockles of my heart because it’s just so different. I love Will Ferrell in comedic roles, but he’s also great in this drama. Plus, Maggie Gyllenhaal. And Emma Thompson with writer’s block.
- Saving Mr. Banks. Speaking of Emma Thompson as a writer, here she plays P.L. Travers, the author of Mary Poppins. She wears great suits, and there’s a back-in-the-day plot, too.
- Searching For Bobby Fisher. I haven’t seen this since 1994, but enjoyed this chess story back then.
- The Social Network. Are you ready for a taut drama (with nearly zero women) about the beginning of Facebook? Then settle in for a tense, nervous Jesse Eisenberg and a similarly fantastic in a not-tense way Justin Timberlake.

There aren’t “nearly zero women” in The Social Network. What about the crazy ex-girlfriend who sets the fire in that one guy’s room for no rea– ohhh. Never mind.
Hee. It starts out so strong with that great argument with Rooney Mara and then, that’s it.
