When the weekend finally arrives, you don’t want to waste a bunch of your precious free time trying to figure out what movie you’re going to watch.

Netflix offers a slew of terrific movies for its users to stream right now in their entirety. However, with so many options to choose from, picking just the right one to make your weekend special can often be an overwhelming task.

Who hasn’t spent a solid 30 minutes scrolling through potential options rather than actually watching something?

To help indecisive people who want to get the most out of both their free time and their Netflix subscription, below is a rundown of five of the best movies you can stream right now:

“Marriage Story”

Many likely heard about this film when it was nominated for best picture at the 2020 Oscars. It ended up being nominated in six categories, with Laura Dern taking home a win for best supporting actress. If you’re a fan of Academy Award–level drama, this is the perfect choice for you.

The film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as Nicole and Charlie. The couple is well off in the theater world of New York City, but their working relationship causes a strain on their marriage. When a job opportunity takes her to Los Angeles and another job opportunity forces him to stay in New York, they have to engage in a bitter divorce proceeding that brings both their emotions and all the dirty laundry from their relationship to light as they battle for custody of their only son, Henry.

“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse”

If you simply can’t get enough of superhero movies, you might as well take in the one that won an Oscar for best animated feature in 2019. While many may be fatigued with the genre, especially Spider-Man with his various reboots, this film may still scratch your itch as it takes a very different approach to the story of Peter Parker by, essentially, making the movie have nothing to do with him.
