There’s just something I really love about watching a movie with a small cast especially when the movie itself is actually really good. So, this post has 10 movies that feature a minimalist cast and all of them are incredibly good in their own right.
With every title, I mention roughly how many cast members there are but often this only takes into account main characters and for some, other characters may show up but for spoiler reasons, I’m avoiding mentioning them.
Note: This list is in no particular order.

Honestly, I’m a little torn by this movie. There was so much I loved about it but then there were other things that could have been far better. That being said, I Think We’re Alone Now was an anticipated release for me and overall it didn’t disappoint. I’m curious to come back to it in a few months (or perhaps longer) and see how it sits after a rewatch. I suspect that it’ll be one of those movies that I keep thinking back to and my fondness will grow over time.

This movie deserves all the hype it got and then some. Although I knew what this movie was about I was mostly interested in the format.

Ever since this movie was announced I was curious to see it. The original movies with Angelina Jolie are two of my favourites and one of the first games I ever remember playing was a Tomb Raider one. So I knew, at the very least, that I would have a good time watching this. However, I missed my chance when it was in theatres until I recently found that it had been put onto Netflix UK.
At the end of 2018, Netflix dropped Bandersnatch which is an interactive film from the Black Mirror anthology. It follows Stefan Butler (played by Fionn Whitehead) who, in 1984, is trying to adapt a dark fantasy novel into a video game. Along the way you, the viewer, have to make decisions to direct Stefan’s path toward one of the multiple endings.

The original Mary Poppins is one of my favourite movies of all time and I made sure not to get my hopes up about this sequel especially considering the amount of time that has past since the first movie. That being said, this one isn’t quite as good but it’s still fantastic. Something I particularly liked about it is that you can get away without seeing the first movie. It does help to know Jane and Michael’s history with Mary Poppins and there are appearances or mentions of past characters but Mary Poppins Returns never relies on you having seen the previous movie.
