“The Dark Knight” (2008)

Netflix description: As Batman, Lt. Gordon and the district attorney continue to dismantle Gotham’s criminal underground, a new villain threatens to undo their good work.

Critic score: 94%

Audience score: 94%

Superhero movies have changed a lot since “The Dark Knight” came out ten years ago (yikes!). This movie is the epitome of the dark superhero movie that’s trying to be a prestige drama. You might long for some levity when you rewatch it, but Heath Ledger’s performance and the excellent cinematography will keep you as on the edge of your seat as you were when you saw this in theaters.

“Amy” (2015)

Netflix description: Rare home videos and interviews with Amy Winehouse’s inner circle offer an intimate look at her journey from charismatic teen to troubled star.

Critic score: 94%

Audience score: 87%

“Amy” is a powerful but devastating documentary that shows the rise of Amy Winehouse’s career and her struggles with addiction, especially as it relates to her rise into celebrity. The doc also explores the downsides of celebrity in a new way that will really make you think.

“Her” (2013)

Netflix description: Love comes to a lonely writer in the sleekest of packages when he finds himself falling for the advanced operating system he bought to run his life.

Critic score: 94%

Audience score: 82%

This sort-of sci-fi movie is not for people are are feeling super lonely. Joaquin Phoenix makes a ridiculous premise (basically falling in love with Siri) emotional and believable, and Scarlett Johansson does captivating voice work that she didn’t get enough credit for pulling off.
