Netflix released many new movies in April. Some films are new to Netflix, while others are returning.
Here are my fave Netflix movies from this month, they’re all Netflix’s top movies.
Inception: After 12 years, Inception’s finale is still debated. If you haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film, prepare to be amazed. Hans Zimmer’s grandiose score requires amplification. Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is a dream-stealing thief. However, the virtual towns collapse and Dom’s internal battles endanger the con and his sanity.
The Borne Identity: 2002’s The Bourne Identity revitalized the super spy genre. The film’s protagonist, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), forgets he’s a super spy, subverting stereotypes. He struggles with his deadly capabilities and forgets why he can fight. Bourne’s friendship with Marie (Franka Potente) makes him more human than James Bond.
Inside Man: Denzel Washington and Clive Owen play cat-and-mouse in this Spike Lee robbery thriller. Dalton Russell (Owen) masterminds the “perfect” bank robbery. Hostage negotiator NYPD Detective Keith Frazier (Washington) negotiates with the thieves. The bank owner hires fixer Madaline White (Jodie Foster) to collect important data from his safety deposit box. With multiple goals, the standoff could turn violent.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days: This Kate Hudson-Matthew McConaughey rom-com about hate turning to love is iconic. Magazine writer Andie Anderson and ad exec Benjamin Barry (yep, those are their names) first get together for the wrong reasons—Andie hunting for a story and Ben for a bet—but they have a spark. When they discover one other’s moves, the game begins.
Zombieland: A virus destroys the planet and turns many humans into flesh-eating undead creatures in this zombie thriller, yet its engaging character and keen wit set it apart. Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), a geeky college student, joins forces with three other survivors: Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Emma Stone (Wichita), and Little Rock. (Abigail Breslin). Columbus creates a zombie survival guide as they go to Los Angeles.
