You can start studying as early as you want for finals, but it’s so important to make sure you’re not straining yourself. So, breaks are essential. Although most studies suggest taking breaks away from the screen are the most beneficial, we know in today’s day in age that is really hard to do that when you just want to sit back, relax and not think for about two hours. However, when you get to the time where you need that break, you really don’t want to waste your time browsing Netflix or Hulu for hours searching for a movie that’s good. So here’s a list of movies to make taking a break a little easier, but are gripping and worth your time:
