Just some suggestions if you're bored one day and want to watch some cinematic greatness.

10 Underrated Movies On Netflix (Part 2)

A few weeks ago, I compiled a list of ten movies that are available on Netflix that I considered to be underrated for our generation and thought were worth mentioning in an article. After I finished it, however, I realized that there are so many other movies that are well-deserving of a spot on that list. Therefore I decided that this week I was going to make a part two. Here are ten more movies that are on Netflix that you should watch if you are ever looking for suggestions.

1. The Road Within

After watching this film for the first time, I was taken aback by the authenticity and vulnerability within it. "The Road Within" follows the journey of three teenagers: Vincent, who suffers from Tourette's Syndrome; Alex, who suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; and Marie, who suffers from anorexia.

2. Little Boy

I mentioned in the prior article how not many movies make me cry. I will have you know, this movie made me actually bawl my eyes out. Between tears of joy and tears of sorrow, it's safe to say emotions were very high. A little boy (well, duh) tries to do whatever he possibly can to bring his father back from World War II, and you are in for an emotional roller coaster.

3. Timer

There is a plethora of romantic comedies on Netflix, but "Timer" is more fresh and unique compared to the others. The concept of the movie is quite intriguing -- it shows a society where a clock implanted into your wrist can countdown to the moment you will meet your soul mate and the internal battle of whether they want to participate or not.

4. In Your Eyes

"In Your Eyes" is a very intriguing film. It's based around a man and a woman who live on opposite sides of the country but somehow form a telepathic bond that allows them to see, hear and feel whatever the other is experiencing.

5. Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory

"Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory" is a documentary that really moved me more than words can explain. It follows a man who creates a nonprofit organization that meets with Alzheimer's patients and shows how music has the ability to battle memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. It is extremely inspiring, especially if you have had family members suffer from the horrible disease.

6. Camp

A financial adviser signs up to be a camp counselor at a camp for kids in the foster system, and gets stuck with a boy that does not want anything to do with him. The film shows the realness of the foster system and what some of the kids have gone through. It is quite touching to see how the story unfolds.

7. Fish Tank

"Fish Tank" is an independent film that is a realistic and deeply sad British coming-of-age drama. It is so raw as it follows a 15-year-old rebellious teenager who just wants to be free and be loved, but has been dealt a rough hand for a long time.

8. Liberal Arts

Ted Mosby is the main character, so that in itself should be enough reason to watch this. Well, not exactly Ted Mosby -- outside of "How I Met Your Mother," he is Josh Radnor, and he is the screen writer as well as the directer of the movie. It is a beautiful independent film that follows a 35 year-old man encountering deep nostalgia that winds up falling for a college student at his alma mater.

9. A Light Beneath Their Feet

Yet another coming-of-age film, "A Light Beneath Their Feet" is an emotionally raw movie that displays a senior in high school's struggle to balance family obligations with her bipolar mother or her personal aspirations with her dream to attend UCLA.

10. Across the Universe

Let it be known that this list is in no particular order, because this film will probably go down as one of my favorite movies. It is incredibly unique in that the sonic framework is based around songs by The Beatles. It is a musical set in the time of The Vietnam War that encapsulates everything that was romance, war and peace in the 1960s.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
