5 Best Movies to Watch During Quarantine

Maya McEntyre

If your quarantine was as uneventful as mine, then you probably watched a plethora of movies. If this is the case, then you might have run out of good stuff to watch. Lucky for you, I have a whole list of movies I need you to watch right now.

#1 Midsommar (Rated R)

I wouldn’t classify Midsommar as a horror, but if you want to be disturbed, this is the movie to watch. It doesn’t have ghosts or murderers chasing you around with knives, rather, it is more of a slow burn psychological thriller with brilliant acting from Florence Pugh (Little Women, Fighting With My Family) that leaves you asking questions long after the movie is done.

#2 Twilight (PG-13)

Unintentional comedy? Check. Campy dialogue and camerawork? Check. Internet memes? Check. Twilight was the beginning of the vampire phenomenon and is also the beginning of the 21st Century YA book to movie pipeline. It’s agreed that the best thing about this movie is the soundtrack, featuring Paramore and a very memorable theme song. If you want a movie to make fun of with your friends on a Saturday night, this is the movie for you.

#3 10 Things I Hate About You (PG-13)

10 Things I Hate About You movie

Be warned, this is an entirely biased review because 10 Things I Hate About You is my favorite movie, as I love romantic comedies. One of the best things about this movie is the cast: Julia Stiles plays rebellious Kat Stratford who strives to go against the status quo; Heath Ledger plays an outcast to this prestigious Seattle high school who gets paid to go out with Kat; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a lovestruck new kid who falls for Kat’s sister, the most popular girl in school.

This 1999 romcom gives me butterflies every time I watch it, and if you feel like going back in time to when there was no such thing as social distancing, this is a must-watch.

#4 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (R)

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood movie

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt make an unexpected power duo in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie. The title makes it obvious that this movie takes place in a fantasy version of Hollywood in the late 1960s. If I’m honest, I didn’t expect to enjoy this movie. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned during my Tarantino binge-watching phase of quarantine (which only lasted through two movies), there’s nothing I enjoy more than Brad Pitt speaking in a heavy southern accent.

Pitt plays the stunt double and friend of actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), as they struggle through the film and TV industry of Hollywood’s “golden age”. Let’s not forget Margot Robbie, who starred in Wolf of Wall with DiCaprio, and as made a name for herself in the past few years. She plays Sharon Tate, the real-life actress who was murdered by the Manson family, who are also featured in this movie. Like all of Tarantino’s movies, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is full of unexpected turns that leave you on the edge of your seat.

#5 The Last Black Man in San Francisco (R)

The Last Black Man in San Francisco movie

For the last movie on this list, I chose a rare one that many may not have heard of. The Last Black Man in San Francisco is not as apocalyptic as it sounds. It follows Jimmie Fails, played by himself, on his journey through a gentrified San Francisco. He and his best friend want to reclaim a house built by Jimmie’s grandfather. This takes them through struggles with identity, sense of self and belonging, and tests their friendship along the way.

Though I will not spoil the ending for you, it left me with a “what happens next? What do I do now?” question floating in my brain for the rest of the night. The Last Black Man in San Francisco is truly a beautiful movie that reflects on what it means to be a black person in a constantly gentrifying America.
