Hi guys, trust your week has been going great. If it hasn’t, hang in there, the much anticipated weekend is around the corner. To unwind during the days off, you can enjoy some of the latest movies of 2020.

Choosing a movie to watch can be a difficult decision. Going through all the movies can be a hassle many people can’t afford and asking for opinions can similarly backfire as people have their individual preferences that can be different from other people’s.

However, I have curated a magical list of Top 5 movies on Netflix that you would enjoy watching with friends this weekend. The movies were selected based on the number of views, ratings and reviews.
