The best titles to watch now on Netflix Movies, TV series and documentaries to spend the time in streaming

Between lockdown and curfew, we will spend the next few weeks divided between desk, living room and bed. While many will take the opportunity to take out again the mat and the good intentions to get back in shape, others will find solace in streaming services, trying to juggle the vast selection of films, TV series and documentaries.
For this reason, nss magazine has put together for you a list of tips on what to watch in these 30 days of home retreat between news and mandatory rewatches.

Best animated film at the 2019 Oscars, the film produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller is undoubtedly one of the best superhero movies ever.

Feel free to ask Kanye West.
