Disney+ has just quietly added 13 big movies to its library
Some genuine classics in the mix here.
Having just revealed its impressive line-up of new additions arriving throughout May, Disney+ has also been adding some very big movies to its library for its subscribers to enjoy.
Admittedly, they're not all stone cold classics, but chances are you won't have seen them all, and some of them are definitely worth checking out...
ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS: THE ROAD CHIP
The fourth film isn't as bad as the third one, but it is still quite bad. As in, 15% on Rotten Tomatoes bad.
BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
The fifth and final outing in the original series of Planet of the Apes movies. It isn't very good (36% on Rotten Tomatoes), so probably for Apes completionists only.
BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES
The first sequel ditched the thoughtfulness of the original movie and replaced it with more action. It didn't work out great.
CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
The fourth in the series, this was around the time when they started skimping on the budgets for this sci-fi epics. It is ... only okay.
ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES
The third in the original series, and the second best of those releases. (By the way, the 1968 original is already available on Disney+.)
FORD V FERRARI
Matt Damon and Christian Bale headline this brilliant biopic about two men who fought tooth and nail to get Ford recognised in the 1966 racing circuit alongside the world champions Ferrari.
THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US
When the pilot of their private plane suffers a fatal heart attack, two survivors (Kate Winslet and Idris Elba) of a plane crash in the snowy mountains must depend on each other to survive the elements.
MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS
Jim Carrey plays a stuffy businessman who inherits five penguins. Initially they bring chaos to his life, but will they eventually teach him things? Like how to not take life too seriously? (Spoilers: yes.)
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
The first of the rebooted series isn't as good as Dawn or War (both of which are also already available on Disney+), but still definitely worth a watch.
Without a doubt, one of the best action movies ever made.
SPEED 2: CRUISE CONTROL
Without a doubt, one of the worst sequels ever made.
THE THREE MUSKETEERS
The 2011 reboot from the director of Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, it has a great cast - Matthew Macfadyen, Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, Milla Jovovich, Luke Evans, Mads Mikkelsen, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz - and not much else.
THE YOUNG VICTORIA
The director of Big Little Lies, the writer of Downton Abbey, and produced by Martin Scorsese! This period drama sees Emily Blunt play a young Queen Victoria, caught up in a political tug of war by those wishing to influence her.
