Foxtel releases Top 100 movies to watch in social isolation

The inevitable is here... get ready for a bingefest.

Whether you like it or not, we've all got more time on our hands during isolation - and it's the best excuse to sit back and finally get the chance to binge watch the films you've heard everyone raving about.

Before you stress - relax, Foxtel has you covered - this weekend they've launched the top 100 self-isolation movies, including a list of the most iconic pictures to date.

If you're in the mood for some romance, Love Actually, Brokeback Mountain, Groundhog Day, and Notting Hill are available.

For those who are after some cult-classics, keep your eyes peeled for Pulp Fiction, Fargo, The Usual Suspects and Taxi Driver.

Need to get the heartrate up? Thrillers like Carrie, The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, Scream and The Exorcist will certainly help.

And if the state of the world has you a little on edge, watch something a little more light hearted - Foxtel has a cracker collection of comedy dramas  on offer, including American Graffiti, Death at a Funeral, Little Miss Sunshine and Lost in Translation.

Watch with friends!

Get access to you Netflix watchlist through Foxtel - a tool to host Netflix-watching party with friends, all from the comfort of each of your (hopefully disinfected) homes. 

Although the tool was introduced well before we knew that coronavirus existed, it is one way to tackle loneliness during a strange time. 

To access Netflix Party, download the google chrome extension (via the Google Chrome store) which allows you and your friends to view shows and films together, at the same time.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Select the Google Chrome store and search “Netflix Party”
  2. Add the Google Chrome extension to your personalised Chrome app.
  3. Once both you and your friends have done so, click on the extension and select “start party”.
  4. A direct URL will be sent, share it with your mates and before you know it a group chat panel will come up on the side, so you can all chat about the episode onscreen.

FYI, if one of you opts to pause the stream - to pee, or probably grab another packet of salt and vinegar chips - it will be paused for all members of the party.

Don't be so selfish, sort out your bowel movements and snacks prior to viewing.
