Starting with...

1408

John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson star in this adaptation of Stephen King's story about a very haunted hotel room. It is decent enough.

3 FROM HELL

Rob Zombie directs this violent slasher about three serial killers who go on a road trip of murdering together.

365 DAYS: THIS DAY

Already a massive hit on the streaming service, despite having 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.

AWAKENINGS

Robert De Niro and Robin Williams (and, in his film debut, Vin Diesel) feature in this sorta-based-on-a-true-story drama about a group of catatonic patients who are given an experimental drug that "awakens" them, in some case for the first time in decades.

BABY GENIUSES

One of the most infamously terrible movies ever made.

BIG DADDY

Adam Sandler bonds with a young boy while trying to prove to his girlfriend that he can be a responsible adult. It's... not great.

BLADE RUNNER 2049

Ryan Gosling headlines this long-awaited epic sci-fi sequel. One of the most visually gorgeous movies ever made.

CHOOSE OR DIE

A horror movie that asks the question "What if Jumanji was evil?"

DEATH BECOMES HER

Overlooked at the time, this supremely dark comedy about Hollywood stars chasing eternal youth features some career-best performances by Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn and Bruce Willis.

EFFIE GRAY

Emma Thompson stars and scripts this period romance about a young woman (Dakota Fanning) who finds herself torn between her husband and her new lover.

FOUR HOURS AT THE CAPITOL

The HBO documentary that tells the story of the incursion of the U.S. Capitol building from those who were there. 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.

THE GIVER

Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift and Katie Holmes star in this adaptation of a much-loved young adult novel. Unfortunately, they didn't adapt it very well.

GODS OF EGYPT

A huge box office flop, this is a big swing of a movie that definitely features some memorable set pieces, not to mention Gerard Butler playing evil Egyptian god Set, with no attempt to cover his Scottish accent.

INTO THE WILD

Sean Penn directs this biopic drama about a young man (Emile Hirsch) who renounces all of his possessions and hitchhikes across America. The supporting cast includes Vince Vaughn, Kristen Stewart, William Hurt and Jena Malone.

JACKASS THE MOVIE

The one with the butt x-ray.

JACKASS 2.5

The one with the running of the bulls... down a suburban street.

JACKASS 3.5

The one with the big high five. Also, Jackass 4.5 is rumoured to be arriving on Netflix pretty soon, too. We chatted to the guys about their return to dangerous stunts and pranks, and you can check out that interview right here:

JOKER

Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor Oscar for this portrayal of the iconic Batman villain.

THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND

Pete Davidson stars in this dramedy about a young man who has been stuck in a state of arrested development ever since his firefighter dad died.

LIAR LIAR

Jim Carrey's legendary comedy, in which he plays a lawyer who suddenly finds himself incapable of lying.

THE LORAX

Danny DeVito voices the titular creature who fights to protect the Earth. Zac Efron and Taylor Swift also provide their vocal talents to this okay-ish animated comedy.

LORD OF WAR

Nic Cage, Ethan Hawke and Jared Leto star in this crime drama about an arms dealer who suddenly finds himself dealing with a mortality crisis. Worth watching for the opening sequence alone.

ORANGE COUNTY

Colin Hanks stars as a high school student who has his life turned upside down when a clerical error means he's missed his chance at attending the college of his dreams. Jack Black, John Lithgow, Lily Tomlin, Mike White and Catherine O'Hara co-star.

PAYCHECK

Action legend John Woo directs Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman in this action sci-fi thriller based on a story from the writer of Blade Runner. It does not add up to the sum of its parts.

PIRANHA

A gory and darkly funny remake of the killer fish horror movie. Better than it sounds.

SAVAGES

Small time pot growers Ben (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch) find themselves going head-to-head with a Mexican cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend (Blake Lively). A fairly sexy action crime thriller.

SEE FOR ME

A brand new horror movie, telling the story of a blind girl who is housesitting alone when the mansion she's looking after is broken into my a group of violent burglars.

THE SOCIAL NETWORK

One of the best movies of the century.

THE SOUVENIR

The story of a young film student who begins a tumultuous relationship with an older man. 91% on Metacritic, this is a must-watch for fans of great cinema.

TOGETHER TOGETHER

When a young loner (Patti Harrison) becomes the gestational surrogate for a single man in his 40s (Ed Helms), the pair embark on a journey of discovery about themselves and each other. A tender and smart comedy drama.
