Stars Angela Bassett, Steve Squyres, Jennifer Trosper
Directed by Ryan White

In the same way that audiences fell in love with Pixar’s cute Wall•E, watching Good Night Oppy draws you into the gushy human emotion surrounding a robot roaming Mars 50 million miles away. But that’s because this documentary is as much about the people at NASA that made the Opportunity Mars Exploration Rover mission possible as it is about the rover itself.

Narrated by Angela Basset, Good Night Oppy tells the inspiring story of Opportunity, a six-wheeled, solar-powered vehicle that touched down on the Red Planet in January 2004 and was supposed to roam and explore the landscape for a predetermined 90 days. But beyond anyone’s expectations, Oppy’s mission endured for nearly 15 years before going dark. Told through interviews with many of the scientists and engineers on the project, as well as archival footage, this is a feel-good doc that’s not to be missed.

Stars Eva Reign, Abubakr Ali, Renée Elise Goldsberry
Directed by Billy Porter

Amazon breaks the rom-com mold with this Gen Z romance that focuses on a trans high school girl navigating the troubles of dating while trans. Kelsa (Eva Reign) knows who she is, but she can’t control the stigma that her classmates fear they may endure from asking her out. Khal (Abubakr Ali), however, develops feelings for Kelsa that he can’t shake. So, despite knowing the drama that might ensue, Khal summons up the courage to ask Kelsa out and see where those feelings lead.

Billy Porter directs this off-the-cuff coming-of-age rom-com (enough hyphens for you?) that stars Eva Reign as Kelsa, a trans high school girl who is supremely confident in her skin yet can’t seem to find romance. That’s in part due to the stigma feared by her classmates should someone ask her out. But when Khal (Abubakr Ali) gets a crush on Kelsa, he summons the courage to ask her out, despite what his peers might say.

He’s been Batman. He’s been the ghost of Elvis. He’s been the voice of K.I.T.T. and the polarizing frontman for The Doors. Since before he became a star, Val Kilmer has been constantly recording his life, from revealing moments on Hollywood productions to more private corners of his life. That obsession is a gift to us, in the form of the 2021 documentary Val. The picture we get is of a complicated man often at odds with himself struggling with his mortality and his legacy. Val is a surprisingly open and honest portrait of the actor that you don’t want to miss.

Stars Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Jodie Turner-Smith
Directed by Stefano Sollima
The general consensus among critics is that Michael B. Jordan is terrific in Without Remorse, but the rest of the movie has a lot of the same dramatic beats that everyone has seen before. So what? It’s a free-action flick on Prime Video and a Tom Clancy story that hasn’t previously been adapted. It’s also a fun way to spend the better part of two hours. Jordan plays John Kelly, an elite Navy SEAL who narrowly survives an attempt on his life after returning home from a mission. But his wife, Pam Kelly (Lauren London), is not as fortunate. To avenge Pam and their unborn child, John goes on a mission of revenge that could spark a new Cold War between the United States and Russia.

The anthology series hails from Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen and tells the stories of London’s West Indian community throughout the 1960s and 1980s. It has a similar feel to playwright August Wilson’s Century Cycle, albeit with a focus on a different community in a different country.

This sci-fi flick premiered at the Slamdance Festival in 2019 before Amazon acquired the exclusive distribution rights and released it online and at some drive-in movie theaters in 2020. Drive-in theater is especially appropriate for this eerie ’50s-era sci-fi thriller.

Gordon. Loosely based on their own life, it follows the story of an interracial couple who struggle with their cultural differences.

After returning to his hometown of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, to see his sick brother, Lee (Casey Affleck) finds himself revisiting old trauma that led to him leaving town in the first place and facing a tough decision about his nephew and his brother’s final wishes. It’s a tearjerker but worth the watch to learn why the film received numerous nominations and wins, including one for Affleck.

Directed by Raoul Peck
This film based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House and narrated by Samuel L. Jackson looks at recollections of stories of various civil rights leaders like Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. and observations on American history. Baldwin, a novelist, playwright, essayist, poet, and activist, was close friends with the three aforementioned leaders and wrote the manuscript throughout the ’70s as a collection of notes and letters. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Academy Awards, it has an almost perfect rating by critics who refer to it as an “incendiary snapshot of James Baldwin’s crucial observations on American race relations” and a “sobering reminder of how far we’ve yet to go.” This title leaves Amazon Prime on November 5.

Actor Shia LaBeouf has always been open about his unconventional childhood, and this screenplay he wrote is based on his time growing up and, most critically, his turbulent relationship with his father. LaBeouf wrote the film as a form of therapy, with a premise that begins when a young man named Otis (Lucas Hedges) is forced to revisit his troubled past to uncover the root of his severe alcohol addiction. It takes you through a troubling, eye-opening, and emotional journey, which The A.V. Club called a “fascinating … glorified form of drama therapy.”

The focus is the 6,700-page report by Daniel Jones of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In the second Adam Driver film on this list, he stars as a bus driver and poet who lives a typically boring life, contrasted by his wife’s ever-changing ambition. As he goes about his mundane daily tasks, however, like walking the dog and grabbing a beer at the local bar, he takes in the seemingly insignificant moments around him and turns them into beautiful poetry. The entire film takes place over the span of just one week, and while it has been described as undramatic, that is precisely what makes it so satisfying to watch.

The best romantic comedies on Netflix right now
Emma Stone in Easy A.

Love is funny. Or, at least, you hope it is. That's preferable to many of the other adjectives associated with love, from sad to rage-inducing. As such, it's no surprise that a humorous outlook on a universal emotion would make such a popular film genre. It's also no surprise that there would be so many bad entries to that film genre.

Netflix has a pretty ample supply of both good and bad romantic comedies, so it can take some time to find a rom-com worth a watch. But don't worry, we've already gone through the library to filter out the time-wasters. These are the best romantic comedies on Netflix right now.
