Stuck for a good film on Netflix? We’ve narrowed down your options to five of our favourite current movies on the platform.


South Africa (06 June 2021) – Brrr! Since there’s a chill in the air, you need to get your blanket and a bucket of popcorn, as this is a recipe for Netflix and chill.

We compiled a list of our five best movies on Netflix right now:

Topping our list is Netflix’s original documentary My Octopus Teacher. It became the first South African film to win an Oscar for best documentary.

It tells the heartwarming story of how filmmaker Craig Foster finds solace in the Kelp Forest and befriends an octopus.


Next is Netflix’s original feel-good comedy, Yes Day. It stars Jennifer Garner, Édgar Ramírez, and Jenna Ortega.

So, what’s this film about?

A mom and dad who usually say no decide to say yes to their kids’ wildest requests with a few ground rules on a whirlwind day of fun and adventure.


Now this is a goody!!! Thunder Force! It follows two childhood friends who invent a way to become superheroes in a world where criminals have developed superpowers. Thunder Force is a film starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer.


Next: Monster tells the story of Steve Harmon (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.), a seventeen-year-old honour student whose world comes crashing down around him when he is charged with felony murder. The film follows his dramatic journey from a smart, likeable film student from Harlem attending an elite high school through a complex legal battle that could leave him spending the rest of his life in prison.


And… The South African mystery thriller film I Am All Girls. It’s about a relentless detective who finds common ground with a killer systematically targeting the perpetrators running a powerful child-trafficking ring.

It stars South African fan favourites Erica Wessels and Deon Lotz.
