Found yourself scrolling endlessly through Netflix feeling uninspired? Bickering with your family over what to watch? Got the movie munchies? – we’ve got you covered!
With cinemas closed and a few long nights ahead we wanted to help you sprinkle some magic on your at home movie nights.
1. MAKE YOUR OWN GOURMET POPCORN
Step aside sweet and salty, this Peanut Butter Maple Gourmet popcorn is the perfect film accompaniment for any discerning nut butter lover. It’s so good in fact we think it deserves an Oscar. Even better, it only takes 10 mins - you'll be wondering why you've never done this before. Get the recipe here.
Top tip: make sure you've got plenty of Nut Butter Cups on hand to sprinkle on top.
2. FORAGE FOR THE PERFECT FILM
It can’t just be us that has scoured Netflix, Amazon Prime, every ‘top 100 films’ list and still can’t seem to find anything to watch... We figured great nut butter lovers think alike so we asked YOU for your favourite films over on Instagram. You came out with some absolute corkers!
As voted by you, here are ten of your favourite films, all available on Netflix:
- Legally Blonde
- The Great Gatsby
- Perks of Being a Wallflower
- Shutter Island
- Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
- I, Tonya
- Gone Girl
3. MAKE A DEN
With everyone stuck at home we’re guessing you’ve spent a fair bit of time stuck to your sofa or tucked up in bed recently? To mix things up, try creating a movie den. With a bit of creativity, you can transport yourself to your very own secret cinema. Dust off those candles, dig out those fairy lights, spread picnic rugs, cushions and blankets on the floor to create a cosy nest on the floor. You can drape scarves, or beach sarongs to create a canopy too.
4. LINK UP WITH FRIENDS (VIRTUALLY)
Isolating alone and missing a film buddy? Netflix Party is a free Google Chrome extension which allows you to watch films simultaneously with your friends and comment along the way! All you need to do is download the app, set up Netflix and start the film you want to watch, pause it and then hit the ‘NP’ button on your tool bar. It will generate a link to send round to your friends. Download the extension here and find out more about how to use it.
