The notion of fun traditionally involves a lot of going out. But what about those times when you want to have fun and not leave the house? With some long weekends stored ahead of us, here are some of our favourite movie marathon suggestions that will entertain all weekend long!
The James Bond Marathon
The discussions around who has been the best 007 agent since the beginning of the James Bond franchise in 1962, will be forever ongoing. However, it’s hard to disagree that Daniel Craig embodies all of the things we love about James Bond – here’s a full list of his films.
