For moms and dads out there! Sit down, relax, and watch a movie right at the comfort of your home. You deserve a break this weekend. Let your children hang out with grandma and have the time to yourselves to relax. Here’s a list of movies you’ll want to watch over the weekend for free at uwatch free or just tune in to Netflix.
The God of Slaughter by Polanski is based on the play by Yasmina Reza. Two sets of parents are arguing about a fight that took place between their sons. A maliciously brilliant study of the fragile ambiguity of civilized dealings with each other.
War of the Buttons
A declaration of love to the child’s longing for freedom and the ability of kids to regulate their things among themselves – at the price of an only loose relationship with their parents. (The original from 1962, based on a novel from 1912, is in black and white, but it is also a fascinating window into another time for kids. Also available as a remake.)
An imaginative homage to the ideals of the 1970s, such as a hippie family idyll, committed environmental protection, homegrown vegetables, and lots of creativity – hopefully never dead. (The cups, bibs, T-shirts, and bedside lamps that the Barbas now have, they would certainly have prevented “Ra-Ro-Rick-Barbatrick” with a demonstration)
What Really Happened to Baby Jane?
A psychological drama about the deadly sibling rivalry starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. For all parents who wish their children were a little closer. Sometimes further away would be better.
A real satire about reality shows, which is an excellent condition for kids to be able to see Heidi K. and her girls and all the other junk at all. (Blackmail as an educational tool has an unfairly bad reputation.)
Me – Despicable
My daughter recommends the movie because it shows how nice villains can be when the right kids come into their lives. The good old Heidi Alpöhi Little Lord motif. Helps a lot when hateful tram phone users and dried-up governesses put on their child-hating eyes again. You can then imagine how gentle they would be if they were allowed to be with our children long enough. Maybe you should offer them.
Shrek one to three
In my opinion, hardly anyone has so lovingly dealt with the arc from getting to know each other to falling in love, from doubts to starting a family, including the consequences of marriage. Always happy.
Into the Wild
A young man decides to live alone in the wilderness and dies there in great loneliness. A tragic invitation not to let your own kids get away with every fart. And the sobering realization that, unfortunately, after a certain age this is wishful thinking.
The housewife’s flower
A devastatingly dreary nineties documentary about vacuum cleaner salesmen. Helps oppressively well to see the color again in everyday household life.
We children from Bahnhof Zoo
Heal us, parents, from wanting to keep the children from their own experiences with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll by means of supposedly educationally valuable films. My father took me to the movies when I was twelve, after that, I decided to become a fixer. Thank god it didn’t work.
We need to talk about Kevin
A disturbing film about the mother of a school gunman on an agonizing search for “why”. With many red pictures, little blood and the eternal question of how much we and our behavior shape our children and whether we are partly to blame for it. The film does not provide a conclusive answer to this. Because maybe there just isn’t one. We can’t do more than our best. Even if that is sometimes not much.
