Well, people have different opinions about winter. Some people barely wait for winter because of the holidays and snow. It is not a secret that many of us become childish when the snow comes. Yet, some people barely wait for winter to end. They do not like the cold weather because it doesn’t allow them to go outside a lot.
Even the first group of people that loves snow sometimes would want to stay at home. Still sitting at home is usually boring and people look for ways to make their free time more entertaining. The best way to make your free time more fun is – watching movies.
Let’s say imagine it is Friday today and you have a free weekend. You don’t want to go out because it is too cold. However, you plan to stay a bit longer awake and watch a couple of movies in a raw. Still, we are aware of the common problem that movie lovers have. Many new movies are published each day, and we are not sure which one to pick.
Fortunately, we are here to help! We want to recommend the movie marathon that people should watch during this winter.
Before Everything, Prepare Yourself Well!
We want to give you small pieces of advice on how to prepare for a movie marathon. The entire “process” will last for a couple of hours. That’s why you should have some things near you. For instance, the drinks and snacks things that must be somewhere near your bed.
Despite that, there is one huge problem that might happen. Imagine that, at some moment, the electricity is gone all over your neighborhood. That could ruin the entire plan that you had for the night.
Fortunately, there is a solution that will fully prepare you for blackout! We suggest you visit backyardtoolshed.com and check which tools they offer. There are generators and some other tools that can ensure you “safe” movie marathon watching.
Anyway, now when we explained everything, let’s get to the point! Here are some of the best winter movie marathons to watch in 2023.
1. A Little Princess
This movie was released on the first day of this month. There is a big chance that you have already watched this movie because the first version was released in 1995. Yet, the modern version brings the emotions in a better way thanks to better production.
Are you a fan of movies that are associated with WWI-era? Well, this movie is one of them. The story follows the life of a small girl in New York City. She is relegated to a life of servitude after her father dies in a war. That’s why this poor orphan needs to start living different from other kids. Her friends and her imagination are two crucial things that relieve her fear and pain. Despite that, they give her the strength to survive in the world that looks designed to tear her down.
2. The Pianist
Well, this is another movie that is somehow associated with WWII. You probably heard about it because Adrien Brody won a Best Actor Oscar for this role. In the movie, he was Wladyslaw Szpilma, a Jewish pianist that survived the Holocaust and stayed in Warsaw during the invasion of Nazi.
This talented pianist was sent to Treblinka. There he became a slave laborer. The movie starts positively because he succeeded to escape from there. Yet, his journey does not stop there. After his escape, he was forced to grapple with the atrocities of the Holocaust for years to come.
This may be a sad movie, but it shows how powerful we can actually be if hope and will exist.
3. Q Ball
If you are a basketball fan and a movie lover at the same time, then this movie is a perfect choice for a movie marathon. We suggest you heard it is coming because it is executive produced by Kevin Durant. The documentary talks about a group of basketball players that are located in San Quentin Prison in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each team member is serving time in prison for a felony conviction. That is the reason why basketball is not just a game for them. It has a lot of stronger meaning. It gives them hope and an opportunity to seek redemption and rehabilitation off the court.
Yet, we are sure that you didn’t know that Q Ball is a book. Generally, the point of both, book and movie, is to describe the lives of many basketball fans that were not able to become successful because of some external factors. In most cases, the reason is bad financial stability.
4. Blade Runner: The Final Cut
Well, the original version of Blade Runner was published in 1982. Still, if you plan to watch this movie, then you should watch the “Final Cut” version. This version was released in 2007. The director of the movie Ridley Scott did that in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary.
It is good to mention that the expended version contains the original and full, length version of the unicorn dream. Despite that, you will see some additional violent scenes and alternative edits that are included in the international cut. Some people like to call it – Blade Runner+
5. Narcos: Mexico: Season 2
Well, “Narcos: Mexico” first season was released before around 1 year. Still, it seems that season 2 is going to be a lot more entertaining and fun. The story is connected with the first part and it continues the story of Guadalajara cartel leader Felix Gallardo. His battle with DEA brings different consequences and risks. Because of that, he needs to be ready for all possible options that could happen because of this war. That’s why he needs to make some changes inside his organization.
If you have watched the first part, then you are well-familiar that the narrator of this story is Scoot McNairy. Well, you will be able to hear his voice once again.
P.S. We know you are here because of the movie marathons, but not mentioning Narcos would be a huge mistake. It is one of the famous shows that gained popularity in all parts of the world.
