After a busy, stressful week, the weekend is the best time for you to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself. One of the best ways to do this is to pick a movie then grab some popcorn, chips, drinks and let the rest fall into place. But this can be a hard task sometimes. With so many movies coming out almost every week, it could be really difficult to make a choice and it wouldn’t be nice if your indecisiveness deprived you of a wonderful, weekend movie.
And that’s why this article is here to provide you with ways you can solve this problem by putting together 5 top-notch movies for your weekend’s pleasure.
5. Single moms’ club
Okay, it’s been a tough week and you just want to forget about it. Well, Tyler Perry is here to help with his 2014 drama titled, ‘The Single Moms’ Club’. It features a group of single moms (obviously), who come together to plan their kids’ school dance and fundraiser to prevent their expulsion. I mean 5 different women from 5 different fields of life who barely know each other, working together. What could go wrong? Right?
Now, this is for those who want to delve into their inner single motherhood side. This story of a 24-year old single mom and her son who was born in captivity, helps you see just how much bond lies between a mother and her child. We have Brie Larson starring in this heartwarming drama of a young mom and her son who live in a room with basically everything they need (well not really). The young boy is oblivious to the existence of a world outside the room since he was born and brought up in it. After series of events, the boy and his mom finally escape and now life begins for the young child.
Watch Brie Larson stroke up a masterpiece of a mom role. Friendly heads up, you might want to grab a tissue box.
3. Promising young woman
Follow the story of a young medical school dropout, still living with her parents, as she takes up an entirely different personality at night to get to the bottom of her friend’s rape case. What do you do when your best friend gets raped and commits suicide? Yes, you do what Cassie does, go undercover at night and pretend to be someone different to get to the root of it and bring the perpetrator to justice. Sounds easy enough.
Everyone loves a bit of animated family drama and there’s no better pick right now than Pixar’s animated ‘SOUL’. It tells the story of a middle school teacher, who dabbles as a jazz musician, as he finds himself suddenly helping a young kid get back to reality.
This movie promises drama, thrill, musical and comedy. I mean what more could you ask for? And since it’s animated, your kids are also going to love it.
Now, what could be more relaxing than spending the Saturday evening in the comfort of your room, watching a romantic comedy? The answer is, spending the Saturday evening watching a romantic comedy with Chris Rock and Kevin Hart in it! Now tell me that isn’t the best way to spend your Saturday.
‘Top 5’ is an American romantic comedy produced by Chris Rock in 2014 which centers on a journalist and a comedian who, through their encounter with each other, help the comedian rediscover his passion for the big stage. What were you most passionate about before it got faded? This film will surely help bring that passion back. A win-win if you ask me.
The week is long and almost never-ending. But the weekend is the exact opposite, not only because it’s more fun and relaxing, but also because it goes by so quickly, you wouldn’t realize it’s Monday again. You could even decide to turn your living room into a personal cinema for your viewing pleasure. So, what are you waiting for?
