40+ Movies and Documentaries on Netflix To Suit Every Mood

I don't know about you but right now I'm finding my mood to be all of the place. One minute I'm a rational thinking human trying to see this weird, worrying time as 'time off' and make the most of it, to minutes later having feelings of claustrophobia and questioning - will the world ever be the same?! 

Which means some days call for binge-watching light-hearted fluff and others, becoming engrossed in a bizarre crime documentary series. So I thought while we all have more than enough time to kill I'd come up with a mega list of movies, series and documentaries you can find on Netflix! 

There are some gems here, so I've listed my own personal favourites at the bottom of this post if you're interested.

Standout movies and documentaries for me include Life, Animated; a real hidden gem that centres around an autistic boy with a love of Disney - this is the most creative and multi-layered documentary I've ever seen! As for movies I'm a huge fan of anything uplifting with Dumplin' and The Unicorn Store being two of my favourite watches in 2019. 

Also, if you didn't know there's now a Netflix Party Google Chrome extension that allows you to watch any Netflix title with your family and friends while sticking to the current guidelines of your country to keep everyone safe. The extension includes a group chat, emojis and even the option of making your own GIFs! 

Fee xo.
