Self-Quarantine Season: 64 of the Best Action, Comedy, Drama, Sports, Stand-Up, and Superhero Films Available to Stream on Netflix Right Now

It’s time to self-quarantine and social distance, which means it’s also time to watch films. The problem with that is, anyone who has spent 40 minutes scrolling through Netflix just to end up putting on an episode of a TV show they’ve already seen before, knows that it can be very hard to decide on something to watch. That’s why I decided to create six lists consisting of some of the best films available on Netflix. There are 64 total films amongst these lists from the following six genres — action/adventure, comedy, drama, sports, stand-up comedy, and superhero — all available to be streamed on Netflix right now. There are a lot of familiar/popular titles on these lists, but I also tried to include some under-the-radar picks as well.

These lists are not ranked in order of quality, instead they are simply listed alphabetically.
