The Nerd & # 39; s Watch is a little more meaningful this month. Since many people stay at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are bored and desperately need good shit to see . Fortunately, io9 is here to bring you a variety of movie and television options.
In our longstanding monthly column, we take the big "Here & # 39; s What & # 39; s Coming to …" lists that you see on other websites and cut the fat. All that's left are the best, or at least the most remarkable, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and genre films to be released on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and Disney + in April 2020.

Bloodsport – We could all use a little Jean Claude Van Damme ass kick in our lives now and Bloodsport one of the great fighting films of all time is happy to do so.
Community: Seasons 1-6 – We usually don't put television or comedy on this list, but the community of NBC is filled with so many great references from pop culture We also thought you'd like to know Netflix is coming.
Deep Impact – The other killer asteroid film that comes out in 1998 Mimi Leather's star-studded film is not as extensive as Armageddon but he has a lot of his own and action – and Morgan Freeman plays the president.
Killer clowns from space – Everything is fine in the title. A Campy cult classic about circus performances by stars who murder people.
Minority Report – One of Steven Spielberg's rare underestimated films plays Tom Cruise as a detective in a society where crime prevails before it happens. The film is not only entertaining, but also a fascinating window into our modern world .
Mortal Kombat – You have two options here. You can see this kind of OK adjustment of the popular video game in full. Or you can just watch the opening minute in the "Mortal Kombat!" and plunges into a bass beat over and over and …
Road to Perdition – Before 1917 built several Oscars, director Sam Mendes tested his hand for the first time with this excellent adaptation of a graphic novel, in which not only Tom Hanks, but also future Bond employee Daniel Craig as well as Paul Newman and Jude Law play the leading role.
Salt – It's not a great movie, no, but if you sit in the house and say, "I'd like to see Angelina Jolie as a kick-ass spy tonight," then Pfeffer in some salt .
Sherlock Holmes – Yes, we all love Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark . But his performance as Sherlock Holmes through the lens of director Guy Ritchie is just right in terms of pure entertainment. This film is a goddamn joy and it's time for a new watch.
The girl with all the presents – This is exactly the highlight of this whole article . I bet good money most of you haven't seen The girl with all the presents . And if you don't have it, you have to see it. Based on a novel of the same name, this film plays Paddy Considine, Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton in one of the best, most effective and intelligent zombie films of recent times. Seriously, it's damn great and you have to see it.
The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions – A masterpiece of modern cinema of all time, followed by two sequels with decreasing returns, make for a pretty interesting binge.

The good, the bad, and the ugly – I'm breaking all io9 rules here to alert you to a western that comes to Netflix and has nothing to do with science Fiction has to do.

Killing a Sacred Deer – I am a big fan of Yorgos Lanthimos' often strange but never boring films: Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Favorite just amazing stuff. However, I missed this film, which is described as a "psychological thriller" with Colin Farrell. Now I have the chance to catch up.

The Main Event – In this original Netflix film, an 11-year-old boy discovers a mask that makes him a WWE wrestler. It is fully supported by the WWE and plays with many of its stars – and if I was 11 years old, I couldn't imagine a cooler idea for a film.

Despicable Me – Look, I hate the Minions as much as the next person over six, but their first film, Despicable Me is actually very good. It's funny, exciting and heartwarming. You've probably already seen it, but just in case it's here.
Jem and the holograms – Jem and the holograms are one of these films, it was so bad that it quickly disappeared. However, we think it has real "so bad it is good" cult potential, and with the film coming to Netflix, now is the chance.

The Brothers Grimm – Terry Gilliam directed this thriller about two cheaters (played by Matt Damon and Heath Ledger) who are in a creepy fairy tale that can inspire some of their own stories. The family tree is better than the product, but it's not a bad watch.
The lost world – The good one! Not the Spielberg! This is the 1925 dinosaur film based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel. It's outdated, of course, but still fascinating to see how a film of this size was made almost 100 years ago.

Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2 – These make two films A killer double feature more excellent Quentin Tarantino films. Or if you pause the first one in front of the last scene and then watch it one after the other, you can almost recreate what it would look like if it were edited into a film.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – A terrible adaptation of an excellent comic is only mentioned here because the source material by Alan Moore and Kevin O & # 39; Neill is excellent. It was also kind of the last film Sean Connery starred in before retiring. Really sad.
