So, most of us are in lockdown and incase you haven't been watching Tik Tok, Facebook & Insta... people are already running out of ways to keep themselves entertained.

Well, fear not friends because we have the remedy to your merciless boredom and not only will it cheer you up, but it will take you back to more simple times... like when staying in doors was a choice and all your friends were sporting 'Team Jacob' t-shirts. 

We have provided a list of franchises that you simply MUST rewatch! These forgotten gems are guaranteed to help you pass hours of isolation time and will fill you with some much needed nostalgia.

Lets kick things off with the most outrageous of the lot...

2. American Pie

Catch Stiffler and the rest (because lets face it, Stifflers everyone's fave) complete with all of their teenage angst in nine.. yes, NINE laugh out loud movies. These classics are spread out between Foxtel Now & Stan but are well worth the membership fees!
