It's only the second day of India's total lockdown, and I'm bored already. The Coronavirus outbreak has influenced not only my long-awaited games, but also caused some Bollywood movies to halt its release date as well. I'm sure you all share this feeling with me. and while there is currently no such thing to do, Netflix will be our best savior.

In fact, there are a lot of shows on the streaming service, which is both a good thing and a bad thing at the same time. While we have a wide range of movies to grind on this lockdown days, there are so many options that sometimes, I find myself opening Netflix, wasting the next 30 minutes to scroll through its catalog, reading through hundreds of shows' description, and then still go back to The Office.

2. Ex Machina

You might find this name very familiar since it's actually a VR game called Deus Ex Machina. However, there's no relation between these two except its Cyberpunk concept, and trust me, the movie is 10 times better what you will get in the game. Directed by Alex Garland, Ex Machina is a huge commercial success, and even got many awards in its release year, including Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and BAFTA Award for the Best British Film.

Its visuals are the most outstanding feature of this Ex Machina but don't underestimate its story

If all of those awards don't give you enough reason to watch the movie, the plot of the movie will sure do. Specifically, Ex Machina takes you to a Cyberpunk-themed company, in which the CEO - Nathan Bateman has thought of implementing experiments on the robotic humanoid - Ava. He has invited his programmer - Caleb Smith to join him as well, abusing his talent to 'upgrade' Ava.

The first 30 minutes of the movie just flies through like that with its stunning futuristic visuals and the enjoyable atmosphere of the three workings together. However, Caleb soon finds out that his boss is aiming something cruel to Ava, as he will pay the cost of erasing her memories to upgrade Ava. And with the feelings he gets from the time interacting with Ava, as well as he gradually finding out that Ava has human feelings as well, Caleb will make his move to stop that wicked plan.

Green Room is hauntingly thrilling for its intense atmosphere

To be more specific, Green Room tells the story of a punk band accidentally witness a murder at a neo-Nazis bar. Of course, the killer doesn't want them to get out, so they surrounded the members with weapons, forcing them to hold in the green room with the dead body to protect themselves. Contradictory to the soothing atmosphere at the start, the violence started to breakouts explosively, which make viewers couldn't leave their eyes off the screen.

It doesn't follow fancy 3Dmoving models, but flat and dreamy visuals that remind us about the good old time.

And rather than providing vivid colors and joyful stories, I Lost My Body is the saddest way of recalling your memory of a broken love story. To be more specific, the movie rotates around a hand. Yes, you didn't read it wrong, it is the story of a separated hand escaping from a refrigerator, trying to return to its beloved body. From then, his memory started to return.
