Great movie marathons to watch with flatmates or friends

September 2017

Imagine you’ve decided to have a movie night with your flatmates. You’re all set. You have the crisps and dips, pizza’s ready to go in the oven, tubes of ice cream waiting in the fridge. Just one easy thing left to do, decide which movies to watch!

Then the silence hits. We’ve all been there. In that eternal purgatory of flicking through pages and pages of Netflix recommendations.

That’s why 5 of our biggest movie fans here at Urban Jungle put their heads together and compiled the Urban Jungle Movie Marathon list split into 4 categories.

  • The Classics (These are your fail safe options you can always fall back on),
  • The Actor Marathon (For those evening you just can’t get enough of that special face),
  • The Director Marathon (Perfect if you’re looking for a marathon with cohesion),
  • Or if you just want Something Different.
