Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Genre: Sci-fi

Who’s it for? Cyberpunk fans (and everyone else).

New to Netflix this month, Blade Runner is still one of the best movies ever made. In Ridley Scott’s near-future Los Angeles (technically the past, since it’s set in 2019), a group of outlawed artificial humans called replicants arrive on Earth, hoping to extend their lives beyond their fixed expiration date. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a blade runner, a special type of cop charged with ‘retiring’ the replicants. But Deckard’s perception of what counts as human life will be profoundly challenged before he can take out all of his targets.

Genre: Generational drama

Who’s it for? Awards buffs and independent cinema fans.

The last great movie to win the Best Picture Oscar before Parasite, Moonlight follows a boy through three stages of an incredibly difficult life: childhood, his teenage years and adulthood. Chiron has to deal with his own struggles of identity and sexuality, while also contending with his emotionally toxic mother. Mahershala Ali won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as a mentor and much-needed father figure in this picture, but equally great is actor Trevante Rhodes, who plays Chiron in his adult life with a palpable repressed pain.

The Dark Knight

Genre: Superhero-infused crime epic.

Who’s it for? Fans of refined action movies (and Batman).

The first two movies of director Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy are on Netflix US, and they’re always worth a rewatch. The Dark Knight is a twist-y crime thriller that’s more of an ensemble piece than Batman Begins or The Dark Knight Rises – indeed, at times it feels like good guy DA Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) is the protagonist as much as Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale). The highlight, of course, is Heath Ledger’s multi-layered performance as Gotham-terrorizing villain The Joker, for which he posthumously won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

The Irishman

Genre: Crime drama

Who’s it for? Cinema buffs and Scorsese fans (which is the same group of people).

This threateningly long Scorsese pic attracted attention for the extensive effects work used to de-age its old stars, and it’s a creative decision that’s occasionally distracting. But there’s no denying the appeal of seeing De Niro, Pesci and Pacino in the same movie together for likely the last time, and this life-spanning, extremely rewarding crime epic is a suitable tribute to their collective talents. The Irishman is about the life of Frank Sheeran (De Niro), as he recounts his long association with the Bufalino crime family. It’s arguably the biggest awards play Netflix has ever made, and soon we’ll see if it pays off.

Genre: Science fiction/heist movie

Who’s it for? Fans of Heat who also enjoy high-concept sci-fi.

This is arguably still the perfect Christopher Nolan movie. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, the most acclaimed actor of his generation, it features an intense Hans Zimmer score and boasts a winning high-concept idea, where it’s possible to enter people’s dreams in order to manipulate them and steal their secrets. As the movie escalates that premise into dreams within dreams, it pulls in more and more bizarre, memorable imagery. And the ensemble cast here is outstanding, with Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy and Mario Cotillard rounding it out. Nolan’s next picture, Tenet, looks like it’s in a similar vein.

Marriage Story

Genre: Character drama

Who’s it for? Awards buffs and the emotionally resilient.

Ensure you’re in the right mindset to watch Marriage Story – i.e. skip this if you’re in the middle of a break-up – because this sympathetic movie about a failing marriage and the resulting fallout can be tough viewing. It’s the latest picture from director Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha), and features actors Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson at the top of their game in what are surely emotionally draining roles. Watch it before it gets memed and gif-ed to death on social media, and you only see Marriage Story as that movie where Kylo Ren cries a lot.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Genre: Adventure

Who’s it for? If you don’t like this movie, we cannot be friends.

The first Indiana Jones movie remains the best. It’s a beautifully-made, funny and exciting adventure, deliberately recalling George Lucas’s pulpy favorites from the first half of the 20th century. The entire trilogy is on Netflix US right now (that’s right, trilogy). Don’t stop and think too hard about Indy’s ethos that ancient artifacts belong in a museum, or the fact he dated his former student, or the generally eyebrow-raising stuff in The Temple of Doom. Instead, enjoy the wicked set pieces and the gorgeous locations of these three classics, before they inevitably move to Disney Plus forever someday.
