Here’s your list for the weekend marathon!

Nothing screams like a relaxing weekend with nothing on the mind! Movies have been a source of entertainment for the longest time, and the style and genres have been branching out, surprising us every month. While some of us are into rom-coms, others are focused on crime thrillers.

Apart from the two obvious genres mentioned, there’s a blend of genres in the present scenario: horror with drama, min-bending comedy, witty romance, and many more. Sometimes, you just want all of your focus investment on the show, and sometimes, you just want to chill out and sip your soda while you run into your weekend escape. And for this weekend, we have listed the best films to watch on Netflix.

Love Again


What if a random text message led to the love of your life? In this romantic comedy, dealing with the loss of her fiancé, Mira Ray sends a series of romantic texts to his old cell phone number, not realizing the number was reassigned to Rob Burn’s New York phone.

A journalist, Rob is captivated by the honesty in the beautifully confessional texts. When he’s assigned to write a profile of megastar Celine Dion (playing herself in her first film role), he enlists her help in figuring out how to meet Mira in person and win her heart.



Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.

One last job could give him his life back, but only if he can accomplish the impossible, inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Shutter Island


In 1954, up-and-coming US marshal Teddy Daniels was assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston’s Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He’s been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long, he thinks he’s been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister.

Teddy’s shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals “escape” in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything.
