Black Mirror has 5 seasons. So, a binge-watch? Yes, consider it our gift because we wanted you to have a lovely weekend.

This TV series is a collection of mind-numbing episodes that makes you think twice about the society that surrounds us. But an interesting connection between all episodes is how technology has profoundly affected us.

Just a trigger warning. After binge-watching the whole series, the mirror of your illusion will break because this fantasy-based drama feels too real to be a lie. 

I’m Thinking of Ending Things

Director: Charlie Kaufman

Cast: Jesse Plemons; Jessie Buckley; Toni Collette; David Thewlis

Year Released: 2020

If you haven’t heard about this movie, then you are missing out on a major heartbreak. Yes, a heartbreaking thrill whose story you’ll applaud for days to come.

The narrative is taken from the novel written by Iain Reid, and man, did he pull off an amazing story. The one bad thing about thrillers is that they are sometimes confusing, which is exactly what you might feel during this one.

But when the knot of this movie untangles, you’ll feel both sad and surprised at human nature. And how vulnerable we are with our emotions.


Director: Alex Garland

Cast: Natalie Portman; Jennifer Jason Leigh; Gina Rodriguez; Tessa Thompson; Tuva Novotny; Oscar Isaac

This movie will keep you on the edge of your seats because it is an action-packed, mesmerizing, and mystery drama that keeps you hanging with all the hidden clues. You would even get an inkling feeling of horror because of the great cinematics of murders in the feature film.

Everything that you know about aliens and forbidden lands, throw them out of your mind! Because this story is both special and nothing you would expect from a sci-fi movie.

Plus, there is a surprise ending waiting to sweep you off your feet.

Have you seen too many depressing psychological thrillers? Here is a thriller to refreshen your movie list.

This motion picture features a comedic spark in its exciting plot and a con artist. Oh, we didn’t tell you? It is a story about a hustler who takes money from the elderly. But, sick as it may sound, things do not quite go as planned.

The plot will leave you gripping your fingernails as you sit back and enjoy the thefts of this con-woman.

Wait, we have a crime thriller too! We knew you’d be waiting for this one!

Marcella is a TV series that expands to three seasons. The show hosts a detective who solves crimes on the go. Pretty much the basic deal, right? No. The crime scenes in the middle are entangled in an entangled story that creates its own twists for the detective.

It makes this a must-watch for all the thrill-seekers. Also, you can dedicate the whole weekend to this serial as it has 24 major episodes. As a bonus, you might encounter little clues along with the episodes as the mystery unfolds itself near the end.


Have you picked one to watch? Then, why are you still here? Grab the popcorn and start binging.

However, we’d like to share one more thing: an early present for making it to the end of the blog. Many movies and series might not be available in your country’s library, claiming to be region-locked. All you need are quick solutions.

In this case, Streamaestro can help you out with the how’s and why’s of accessing a restricted site. Thank you later.
