Any movie featuring cast members like Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, and Zoe Saldana is meant to be a hit among fans. Add to the mix an engaging plotline, classic Reynolds humor, and wholesome scenes that could melt the coldest of hearts and you have Netflix’s latest hit, The Adam Project.

13 going on 30
More of Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo together? Yes, please.
This well-known classic isn’t a fan favorite for no reason. While we watch Ryan Reynolds, the older Adam meet his younger self in The Adam Project, 13 Going on 30 focuses on a 13-year-old Jenna magically transforming into her 30-year-old self with no recollection of the intervening 17 years. While she initially finds the freedom liberating, she realizes she has made many mistakes in the past. Most others don’t get to re-do things they wish they’d done differently, but Jenna has the chance and she takes it. Get more of Garner and Ruffalo chemistry by streaming this film.
Back to the Future
Every genre has one film that is indefinitely included in a conversation about it. For time travel and sci-fi films, it has to be Back to the Future. This 1985 film is considered one of the most iconic movies ever made and its legacy only keeps growing. In fact, The Adam Project has a few throwbacks to this classic peppered as Easter eggs in the runtime. Understand these Easter eggs by streaming this time-travelling classic.
Looper is one of the best projects Bruce Willis has been a part of in recent times. While that should be reason enough for you to stream it on Netflix, its description only gets better. Joe, a member of a crime syndicate in 2044, is a well-known assassin. The twist is that he travels back and forth in time to get the job done. But what happens when he has to kill his future self?
If it wasn’t the time travel but the signature Ryan Reynolds stage presence that made The Adam Project stand out to you, then Red Notice is your calling. This Netflix Original features Reynolds in his natural habitat: awkward comedy in serious situations. Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and intense action make this quite a memorable watch you’d turn to more than once. Stream this movie for a fun watch.
Considering the ever-growing fanbase of anime, we just couldn’t not include one in this list. Steins;Gate is an anime that features a mad scientist and his friends. They find out that a device they created can send messages back in time, causing ripples and complications they never thought they would have to deal with. Well, after the way Adam messes with time in The Adam Project, this anime will surely hit close to home for many.
