Let’s be honest, this winter far from over. However, good news is that there are tons of great movies you can watch without having to leave your house! So, cuddle up with your bae and get your binge on with these must-see flicks.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
First off, we have The Addams Family. No matter how you spin it, this film is a modern classic.
And it’s magical:
The film introduced us to a young Christina Ricci as Wednesday:
Christopher Lloyd, Anjelica Huston and the late-great Raul Julia all brought their A+ game. Plus, who doesn’t like a solid dose of morbid humor?
So do yourself a favor, revisit all your favorite Addams and experience firsthand the family comedy that stands the test of time.
Ladies and gentleman, why not throw some soul into our winter binge? And what better film to deliver that soul than the epic comedic ensemble Soul Plane?!
Random Soul Plane fact: This is the ONLY film in cinematic history to feature an airplane on hydrolix.
Plus, with Snoop Dogg as your Captain, there’s no telling what course this trip is gonna go on…so have no fear.
Also, if you had a dollar for every well-known comedian/rapper/actor in this film…you’d have about $13.00, just enough for an in-flight beverage. Kevin Hart, Sofia Vergara, Tom Arnold, Method Man, Godfrey, D.L. Hughley, Mo’Nique, John Witherspoon, Karl Malone, Terry Crews, Big Boy and of course Lil Jon all make notable appearances in this ensemble. Not to mention the fact that you can literally dance along to this film.
The Captain has turned off the Fasten Seat Belt sign. Also make sure your seat back and folding trays are in their full upright position. Time to get up off your couch and get your groove on!
After a healthy dose of comedy, you may want to unwind with the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig, arguably the best to play Agent 007.
This film has it all, exotic locations:
AND don’t underestimate the villain played by Oscar-winner Javier Bardem.
And speaking of Javier, check out this behind the scenes look at what his costars and director have to say about Javier’s menacing performance:
Skyfall will take you on such a wild ride, it’ll make you want to binge-watch all the Bond babes you can.
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
And finally, you can’t mention “binge” without mentioning The Wolf of Wall Street, of course.
Leonardo DiCaprio puts on a performance for the ages in the true story based on Wall Street bigwig Jordan Belfort.
In typical Martin Scorsese fashion, this film is larger than life.
You’ve got sex, drugs, money and Jonah Hill’s penis…The Wolf of Wall Street doesn’t shy away from anything.
So, instead of listening to the soothing sound of the rain hitting your windowsill, you can watch Leonardo making it rain in this 3-hour epic.
So there you have it. You got your laughs, hijinks, family morals, adventure, globetrotting, decadence, sex and of course…Jonah Hill’s penis. Please comment if you have anymore binge-worthy flicks. I’m always looking to pass the time doing marathons…movie marathons, that is.
