Classic is any movie that was largely celebrated in due course of its time. From being the most popular to becoming cultural motifs, classics become culturally relevant. In more simple words, a movie so great that no one will ever forget it.
Netflix is home to several classics conveniently placed for watching and rewatching when the world of new content seems too distant. You are in for a ride as the month of May has a fresh round of such movies landing right on the shelves of Netflix.
A few of the more celebrated classics on the streamer include Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, and of course The Notebook. Classics are familiar, have strong narratives, and are often categorised as comfortable watches. Especially for the essence added of nostalgia that comes with them.
Jazz up May with the newest list of films coming to the streamer now, and enjoy the following classics while at it.
