Netflix and Chill: Netflix Movies To Watch While In College
One thing I’ve learned while attending college is when you are done with all of your assignments (priorities first), and you are bored in the dorm, turn on Netflix!
These movies are the Stay-In-Your-Dorm jewels to cherish with a box of pizza & a Coke. Chill over some good Netflix movies to watch while in college!
Stomp The Yard
This is a must see on campus! Directed by Sylvain White, Stomp The Yard follows the experiences of DJ, an expert dancer that attends Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia. This movie depicts how college life is, in a more exciting point of view; the movie even made me develop a love for stepping! I HIGHLY suggest this movie to anyone that wants a view of college life.
Snow On Tha Bluff
I recently viewed this movie for the first time (Crazy, I know), and I automatically fell in love with it. Snow On Tha Bluff is a documentary on the life of Curtis Snow, a drug dealer that steals a camera from some clientele, literally in the first few minutes of the movie and decides to record his daily activities. At first glance, you are going to ask this question: How is this a movie? And believe me when I tell you this, the ending of the movie will explain it all. And that question follows into another question: Is the movie that crazy? And to answer your question: Yes, it is. And it’s because it all based on a true story. From beginning to end, nothing in the film is fabricated, edited to make it “viewer friendly”, nothing. Just straight raw, uncut footage. And that’s what makes the story of Curtis Snow so interesting. Patiently waiting for Snow On Tha Bluff 2!
One of my old-time favorites (Anything with Will Smith really), iRobot follows Smith, a homicide detective in 2035 Chicago who is following a What-Appears-To-Be Suicide case that turns into this action-thriller cinematic jewel of 2004. Some people may not get into it fully, but it is a good movie to watch when your looking for some thrill films.
If you know that scene (as well as others in the film) then you should know exactly what this movie is about! The story follows behind Jody, an unemployed young adult, dependent on his mother who he’s been living with for several years (with his own child), and involved in a love triangle with his baby mother, Yvette and another woman. Baby Boy is one of those movies that will always be a classic and a culture film jewel. If you haven’t watched it yet, definitely put it on the top of your To-Do-On-Campus-List.
Selma, a film by Lee Daniels, is one of those movies that can’t be explained, but rather NEEDS to be viewed (Seriously, this is the most important film of 2015). Selma is the depiction of Dr. Martin Luther King’s equal voting rights march in Selma, Montgomery to Alabama in 1965. Directed by Ava DuVernay, written by Paul Webb and powerful acting by David Oyelowo, Selma has every reason for earning its Academy Award Oscar for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, AFI Awards for Movie of the Year, African-American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) Award for Best Picture, and the list goes on (According to IMDb).
Those are just some of the Go-To-Watch Movies for College. To my Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors: what are some movies you watch in the dorm? Any movies that are on the top of your Must Watch list? Start the Discussion!
