Currently, most countries in the world are complying with isolation and quarantine because of the covid-19 pandemic. This means that even movie theaters remain closed, to avoid crowding. But it doesn't mean that people can't enjoy good movies.
At home, you can search online for a variety of options that will help you have a good time from the comfort of your home. There are many varieties, for those who like to read, there are movies in English with subtitles (en español: películas en inglés con subtítulos), and also those that can be seen dubbed into Spanish. So there are no excuses.
What are the recommendations? Here is the list:
1.- "Mother!" (Mother! - 2017)
Jennifer Lawrence is the protagonist of this film described as a horror / suspense film. The story, at first sight, looks normal, where a couple formed by a housewife and her husband (Javier Bardem), a famous writer. But, quickly what seems simple becomes a story that is capable of blowing anyone's head off, after the family home is visited by many strangers.
Undoubtedly, the director Darren Aronofsky ("The Black Swan") was not afraid to show this complicated but attractive story. The critics gave it good grades, so it is an excellent option to enjoy at home.
2.- "Run away!" (Get Out - 2017)
One of the best films in recent years was directed by Jordan Peele, who also wrote the script of this story of terror, drama and also social denunciation. A black boyfriend with a white girlfriend, she decides to take him to an event to meet his family. Everything is fine... until when Chris, the main character (Daniel Kaluuya) arrives at the event, he discovers a whole frightening network from which he will have to escape in order to survive.
It's great and seeing it is not boring at any time. This is one of the many subtitled films.
3.- "Baby Driver" (2017)
Ansel Elgort plays the main character in this story, a young man who must drive vehicles to a delinquent as part of a debt repayment. The good thing is that "baby", as he is called, loves to drive cars at full speed and with lots of music. This last detail gives the film an incredible soundtrack and sound mix, which earned him Oscar nominations.
Edgar Wright, the director, received good reviews for the great work he did with this production, which also features Lily James, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez and Jamie Foxx.
4.- "It" (Eso - 2017)
It is the most recent film adaptation of Stephen King's book of the same name. A group of children from a quiet American village are harassed and chased by a malevolent clown who will make them relive their worst fears. The Argentine Andrés Muschietti directed a great film that counted in its cast with Bill Skarsgård, Finn Wolfhard, Jaeden Martell and Sophia Lillis.
Last year the sequel came out with the same casting and the incorporation of the adult versions of the protagonists. Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and James McAvoy were there.
5.- "Coco" (2017)
Crying while watching a Disney animated movie? Sure, that can happen with "Coco", a beautiful film that reflects the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. It happens when a child, Miguel, passes into the world of the dead and must get the help of a relative in order to return home. Fun, feeling, music and incredible animation make this one of the best productions. Directed by Adrián Molina and Lee Unkrich.
It is true that the V.O. of this film is in Latin Spanish, to respect the character's roots and environment, but since Disney is an American company, it was also made in English. So if you want to know how one of the best Disney Pixar movies sounds in that language, don't hesitate to watch Coco in that language. However you see it, in this case it will be a O.V. movie (película en V.O.).
6.- "Good Time" (2017)
Starring Robert Pattinson (yes, the same as "Twilight"), who plays a man full of many problems who plans to commit a spectacular robbery. The critics praised Pattinson's work, to the point that he has gradually moved away from that sweet teenage vampire.
Whether it's movies in the original version (en español, películas en versión original), or dubbed, these options will make for a good time.
