Everyone is stuck at home because of the coronavirus pandemic. I have managed to make a list of some great movies to watch while in quarantine.

Here is a list of some great movies to watch in quarantine.

 

1917

During the era of the first world war, two soldiers are assigned to deliver a message. The message is to stop 1600 men walking deep into the enemy’s trap.  Is the deepest, impressive and realistic way of seeing what kinds of things happened in WWI. This movie made me leave the movies with tears in my eyes as if I have had a time travel experience to the World War. A must watch a movie in quarantine time.

Atonement

This is a love story and more, with the backdrop of the Second World War. Although it is not a war film as such, the scenes of the Dunkirk evacuation are some of the best of their type ever executed in cinema history. Apart from this, Atonement doesn’t disappoint in any department, the acting is first class and the story is engaging and I certainly didn’t guess the ending. I will see it again. Great movie to watch during the quarantine.

The Judge

A beautiful story about the relationship between a father and son. A hot-shot lawyer Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father, the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. Hank sets out to discover the truth and, along the way, reconnects with his estranged family. The Judge is a deeply moving film that showcases the acting powerhouse that is Robert Duvall and the undeniable versatility and magnetic screen presence of Robert Downey Jr. There are also strong supporting performances from Vera Farmiga (she and RJD have great chemistry), Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Jeremy Strong. I dare anyone who has dealt with family issues not to be affected.

Christopher Nolan movies of Batman

 

Batman Begins

After training with his mentor, Batman begins his fight to free crime-ridden Gotham City from corruption.

The Dark Knight

A brilliant tense movie from the beginning to the end in which tells the story of the rising new menace in Gotham city known only as of the Joker and how the Dark Knight has to reach his limits trying to control the havoc he breaks in Gotham city.

The Dark Knight Rises

Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy concludes gloriously and gives us a thought-provoking and suitably satisfying conclusion to an epic saga. It’s emotional, intense and has a great villain in Tom Hardy. Nolan trilogy of Batman series is best to watch during the quarantine.

Schindler’s list

In German-occupied Poland during World War II, industrialist Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazis. Schindler’s List is undoubtedly the best Holocaust film ever made. There just isn’t anything like this film. Various other films have tried to show the true horrors of the Holocaust, but none of them succeeded the way that Schindler’s List did. Schindler’s List is a difficult film to watch. When you see the true atrocities of the Holocaust, your jaw drops.

Forrest Gump

The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, the events of Vietnam, Watergate, and other historical events unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75, whose only desire is to be reunited with his childhood sweetheart. This is a powerful yet charming movie; fun for its special effects and profound in how it keeps you thinking long after it’s over. A great movie to watch during quarantine time.

Gravity

Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space. This is a beautiful movie. It’s not so much a space film or an adventure film or a survival film as much as it is a film about what it means to be human, what it means to be alone and the human need for interactions with other humans. It’s a movie about strength and resilience. Do watch this in your quarantine time.

Braveheart

When his secret bride is executed for assaulting an English soldier who tried to rape her, William Wallace begins a revolt against King Edward I of England.  The Academy Award-winning war epic Braveheart is an extraordinary film that set a new bar for the genre. The story follows a Scottish peasant named William Wallace who’s pushed into leading a rebellion against the tyranny of English rule when his wife is murdered.

The Pianist

A Polish Jewish musician struggles to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto of World War II.  This is a truly heart-wrenching story of one man whose family gets perished in the Holocaust and about his survival over solitude, deprivation, starvation, and terror while in hiding during the Nazi occupation.

The Green Mile

The lives of guards on Death Row are affected by one of their charges: a black man accused of child murder and rape, yet who has a mysterious gift.  The Green Mile is a masterwork. This is a film as art, at it’s very best. The depth of the cast is extraordinary, with all of the players delivering excellent performances. There is a clear sense here that all involved in the production knew that this was something special, and gave it they’re all. See this movie in your quarantine if you truly enjoy actors giving everything to their craft.

Good Will Hunting

Will Hunting, a janitor at M.I.T., has a gift for mathematics but needs help from a psychologist to find direction in his life. Sure, this film’s plot is fairly predictable. Sure, if you boiled it down to its essential components it wouldn’t amount to much. Sure, Will Hunting’s genius is profoundly unrealistic. It’s a great movie to watch during the quarantine.

Silver Linings Playbook

After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own. A great drama movie to watch during the quarantine.

Begin Again

A chance encounter between a disgraced music-business executive and a young singer-songwriter, new to Manhattan, turns into a promising collaboration between the two talents.   Beautifully done movie. Not many are this full of incredible music, GREAT writing AND WONDERFUL acting.

The Theory of Everything

A look at the relationship between the famous physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife. A beautiful movie to watch during the quarantine.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world. The story is very simple yet complicated because of how much goes on. But the way it unfolds is beautiful and sad, sometimes all at once. While it has its funny moments, it also manages to go through dark topics as well such as homosexuality, drugs, and death. A beautiful movie to watch in quarantine.

Parasite

A poor family, the Kims, con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. But their easy life gets complicated when their deception is threatened with exposure. This movie is a masterpiece. It will make you belly laugh, it will chill you to the bone, and it will make you shed a tear. This movie will stay with you long after the credits are over. Do watch it in your quarantine.

The Intouchables

After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caregiver. The cast is brilliant. The jokes are lovely. The story and the idea behind the movie are beautiful. Especially when you’ve worked/lived with handicapped people. The music is such a perfect choice, it is unbelievable. An awesome movie that will make you happy in your quarantine.
