27 Oct The best anime movies from the Netflix catalog to watch while you work or study
Netflix recently released Altered Carbon: Resleeved, an original film for the platform that adds to its catalog of anime films. As a result of this and in the middle of the quarantine for the Coronavirus, it is time to take a look at this catalog and see those animated films that you had not paid much attention to before.
Do you know Bruce Wayne? That super serious rich man who decides to face his childhood traumas by becoming a superhero and beating everyone up? Well now imagine him in an anime, with a sword and a samurai suit. The action is good, but just seeing a character like Batman in this context makes it something to see.
Godzilla: Planet of Monsters (2017)
Movies about giant monsters can never go wrong. They can get a mediocre script, but the giant bug action scenes make anything entertaining. Here, in the distant future, some humans return to Earth to reclaim their planet occupied by gigantic monsters. Godzilla is incredible with the limits of live-action, imagine in an anime.
Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution (2019)
Pokémon is one of those animated series that never disappoints. It is a classic from the childhood of millennials, centennials, and even other generations. The rules, the origin, and the characters we all know, therefore we do not need as much information before seeing this production. Also, it’s never too late to see a story about Mewtwo, one of the best Pokémon of all time.
Our Name (2016)
One of the best love movies you can find in the Netflix catalog, without a doubt. Taki and Mitsuha’s bodies are constantly being exchanged and, once they accept this reality, they begin to communicate through messages. To cry, get emotional, remember old stories, suffer.
My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
This is another of the film classics, and especially anime, that we have to enjoy in the Netflix catalog. The 1988 movie doesn’t feel out of date when we watch it from 2020 and tells a very sweet story about family and friendship. It is a multi-award-winning film that perhaps many of us do not remember when we saw it as children and that the youngest need to know.
Spirited Away (2001)
Speaking of animated classics, here’s another one. The feature film released in 2001 became the highest-grossing film in the history of Japanese cinema and surpassed the exclusive success of the genre, becoming a cult film. It is a production that we need to present to those under 15 years of age, they need to see it yes or yes.
One of the films that transcend its genre and become a classic of cinema in general. So much so that a project to make a live-action production is underway. In the original film, the power of young telepath causes in the city and only his best friend, a tough motorcyclist, is able to stop him. Action, science fiction, friendship, motorcycles, everything you are looking for.
Ghost in the Shell (1995)
This is another story that left the genre and even became a live-action movie starring Scarlett Johansson, nothing more, nothing less. His photography is impressive and he has a super crazy and interesting story, especially to see in the world we live in today. The original film is much better than its live adaptation.
