Best Movies to Stream During Coronavirus Lockdown

The lockdown has brought with itself a wave of anxiety and depression. Many people including the young and old are finding it hard to cope with the issues about mental health. Although Internet service providers state that their plans, for example, Spectrum Internet plans and the like are observing a spike in usage, the issue remains.

I think you should give watching movies a chance to help divert your mind. Some of my favorites are:

Bridget Jones’s Diary

Movies have the power to own you. And Bridget Jones’s Diary is an example of one such movie. TBS usually airs this movie. But if not, you can watch it on Netflix, provided that you have access to the Internet (which every American has during the lockdown). Having a spare device to watch the movie can be an obstacle. But if you have both, voila. You just signed yourself up for an amazing 1 hour and 37 minutes of entertainment.


Available by Amazon Prime, Arthur is another engaging watch. I am sure it’s been days since you have had a sight of a bustling New York. And if your eyes crave the eccentricity and decadence of the city, look no further than Arthur. This comedy movie features everything that you love about that city.

The outrageous characters, Liza Minnelli and Dudley Moore, will keep you entertained with their quirky romance. Dudley Moore is a rich, drunken playboy. He is as charming as he is offensive. He falls in love with Liza Minnelli – a spoiled brat. Watch the movie today to see how the events unroll.


A French village, a beautiful woman and her daughter, and their adventures as they travel the world, Chocolat is a great watch. Indulge in some lust and vigor as you watch this movie on Amazon or HBO Go.

Spirited Away

If you have HBO Max, you do not need to worry about having access to a streaming service. Because most of Hayao Miyazaki’s movies are coming to the channel. Hayao Miyazaki is an animation genius. And if you want to relish watching his movies, start with Spirited Away. It happens to be one of Miyazaki’s greatest achievements in the world of animation. Watch it today on Amazon or iTunes.


Moonstruck is by far Cher’s finest acting works. Released in 1987, the movie narrates the story of an Italian girl residing in Brooklyn. The plot takes an unfortunate twist when she falls in love with her fiancé’s brother. It is available on Amazon Prime. You should watch it if you wish to see Cher at her best.


Babe is one of the cutest kid’s movies that I watched. The pig named Babe living in Australia gets saved from being slaughtered so that its dream to become a sheepdog becomes fulfilled. This famous movie got nominated for the Best Picture. You can watch it on Starz and iTunes.


Everyone who has a liking for horror movies should watch Ghost. It is a story of a murdered man who tries to warn his girlfriend of the danger that awaits her from his grave. You will also get to watch the romantic drama in the movie apart from the horror scenes. Hulu currently has this movie in its library.

The Cabin in the Woods

Available on Amazon Prime, and starring Chris Hemsworth, The Cabin in the Woods is another scary movie. It begins as a horror film but twists into an insidious Meta real soon. If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, the movie is available there.

Life Itself

Do you wish to hone your appreciation for movies? There could be no better time and documentary, to begin with. Life Itself is a documentary based on the critic Roger Ebert. The prominent critic continued to host his famous show with co-host Gene Siskel. His love for films did not end even when he was fighting cancer in his last years. Watch it on Hulu today.

The Invention of Lying

This comedy documentary by Ricky Gervais is a work of genius. Gervais uses his brutally honest and his sarcasm to joke about an alternate universe in this documentary.


A movie about a chameleon with Johnny Depp’s voice-over, Rango is an amazing movie to watch with your family. The movies are available on Amazon Prime. Watch this comedy today for a light mood watch.

Apart from watching movies, you can also binge-watch the shows that were on your list for ages. This is the best time to do so. Also, because Internet service providers have suspended data caps. The service providers have pledged to make it easy for the subscribers by signing the ‘Keep Americans Connected’ Pledge.
