Lockdown has eased off recently, as the start of this week (April 12th, 2021) marked the first day in over a year the people of Britain have been able to go out and have a drink.

Many people are taking advantage of the decent weather and the pubs, bars and cafes on offer; but if you’re not ready for all that yet and just fancy another weekend in, then we’ve got you covered.

Netflix, Now TV (with Sky Cinema Pass) and Amazon Prime Video are bringing a multitude of movies to their streaming services; which ones will you be checking out?

Love and Monsters (2020) – Available on Netflix

Dylan O’Brien stars as Joel Dawson who, along with the rest of the human race, has been living underground for the past seven years due to the Monsterpocalypse.

After connecting with his old high school girlfriend, Aimee (Jessica Henwick) over the radio, Dawson soon realises that he’s falling for her all over again.

Dawson decides to try and see Aimee again; she is over 80 miles away and he must go above ground to get to her. Since there’s nothing left for him underground, he makes his way to his long-lost love.

This movie is action-packed and with a promising story about a guy trying to get his girl – in the midst of giant creatures and a hellish landscape - what could go wrong?

Crimson Peak (2015) - Available on Netflix

Promising Young Woman (2020) – Available on Now (with Sky Cinema Pass)

Emotionally wounded, a medical school dropout, and pushing 30, Cassie (Carey Mulligan) isn’t exactly living her best life.

Still living with her parents and waiting tables at a half-decent coffee shop, Cassie wants more out of life; her answer? Murder.

She prays on those who could cause trouble to others, and takes them down one by one. Pretending to be a poor, drunk and helpless girl, she kills those who would think of taking advantage of her.

But as soon as Ryan (Bo Burnham) enters the picture, Cassie wants out. Can it be that easy to kick the habit she has?

This film is racy, shocking and a true tale of revenge; is there redemption for Cassie, or is she in too deep?

Spontaneous (2020) – Available on Amazon Prime Video

When students at their school are not only growing up, but blowing up (literally), two students seek the opportunity to live for today rather than worry about tomorrow; given that any moment could be their last.

Mara (Katherine Langford) and Dylan (Charlie Plummer) begin to struggle in this strange world, where every second means everything. When a romance starts to flourish between the two, they want more than every to simply enjoy every day as if it were their last; which it very well could be.

This movie seems rather odd, but worth giving a go if you want to watch something new this weekend; with comedy and fantasy themes coming together, this film seems set to surprise you.

Somewhere (2010) - Available on Amazon Prime Video

Stephen Dorff stars as Johnny Marco, a man who lives the champagne lifestyle in Chateau Marmont; partying and dancing with women seems to be his only concern, if you could even call it that.

While enjoying yet another day of the lavish life, his 11-year-old daughter is randomly dropped off by her mother, who then leaves town. As an infrequent father, Marco wonders if his kid will kill the mood.

This films seems as though it may have a wholesome ending, where Marco realises he should’ve been a better parent; there’s only one way to find out if that’s the case, though…

Wander (2020) - Available on Amazon Prime Video

Arthur Bretnik (Aaron Eckhart) is a troubled man, a mentally unstable conspiracy theorist, and a private eye. After being hired to investigate a possible murder cover-up in a town called Wander, he begins to sense that things are more sinister than he expected…

Arthur is thrown into lies after lies and a mountain of deceit, as he suspects this cover-up he’s been hired to look into, may have something to do with the death of his daughter; the very cause of his disturbed past.

This films promises a clear plot, but not without its twists, turns, and suspicious narrative as Arthur struggles to differentiate the true from the false and solve the case.
