AMERICAN GANGSTER

Ridley Scott teams up with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe for this epic crime saga.

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE

Based on that app that everyone played a few years ago.

CANDYMAN (2021)

The recent reboot/sequel features a great cast and a script by modern horror maestro Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us, Nope). Check out our chats with stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris right here:

THE DANISH GIRL

A powerful, Oscar-winning drama based on the true story of Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne), who identified as a woman and faces a harsh public reaction, but still maintains the support of her wife (Alicia Vikander).

DISTRICT 9

One of the best science fiction movies ever made, set against the crash landing of an alien ship in South Africa.

EVOLUTION

David Duchovny, Julianne Moore and Seann William Scott star in this Ghostbusters-style remix, with the ghosts replaced by aliens.

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL

When his girlfriend suddenly dumps him, Jason Segel decides to go on a tropical holiday alone... only for his ex and her new boyfriend to be in the room next door. A very funny comedy.

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS

Can attractive and cool friends Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake keep feelings out of the bedroom? Spoilers: No.

GET HIM TO THE GREEK

The sorta-sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall, with Russell Brand as an obnoxious rock star paired with a new personal assistant (Jonah Hill). A funny-enough comedy.

THE HATEFUL EIGHT

Tarantino's worst movie. Don't @ me.

JOHNNY ENGLISH

Not quite James Bond, not quite Austin Powers, here we have Rowan Atkinson falling between the stools.

JOHNNY ENGLISH REBORN

Speaking of stools, this sequel is also quite shit.

KING KONG (2005)

Peter Jackson followed up his Lord of the Rings Trilogy with this bloated epic that also feels it should've been divided up into more than one movie. Parts of it are fantastic - that T-Rex fight! - but holy moly, does it feel long.

O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU?

The Coen Brothers and George Clooney team up for this musical crime caper about prison escapees searching for buried treasure.

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS

A man (Seth Rogen) and his pot dealer (James Franco) are forced to go on the run when they witness a corrupt cop committing a murder. One of the funnier Rogen and Franco pairings.

ROLE MODELS

Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott are court-ordered to take part in a Big Brother program, with hilarious results. We recently asked Rudd if he'd like to return to his character in this movie, check out his answer right here:

SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

Yes, it should not have beat Saving Private Ryan to the Best Picture Oscar that year, but this is still a cute-enough period romance drama with Joseph Fiennes (remember him?), Gwyneth Paltrow and a scene-stealing Judi Dench.

THE SHALLOWS

A surfer (Blake Lively) finds herself injured and alone on a small rock offshore following a shark attack. The shark is still in the area, and the tide is coming in...

SMALL SOLDIERS

Missile technology is used to make toys better, and you'll never guess what happens next?! Yep, pretty much The Terminator, except teeny tiny.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON

The brilliant biopic drama about the rise and eventual fall of the NWA.

TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES

Not as good as the first two, but still probably better than you remember/heard.

THE UGLY TRUTH

Back when Hollywood didn't know what to do with Gerard Butler, they kept putting him in awful rom-coms. This is one of those rom-coms, here paired with Katherine Heigl.

WALLACE & GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT

Winner of the Best Animated Feature Oscar, this brilliantly funny and inventive animated classic is worth introducing to younger members of the family that might still currently have Encanto on a loop.

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS

Taika Waititi's fantastic comedy about a house-sharing group of vampires attempting to adapt to modern-day New Zealand.

WHITE BOY RICK

Based on the true story of a 14-year-old boy who became the youngest FBI informant ever, Matthew McConaughey headlines a great cast.

WILD CHILD

Emma Roberts plays a spoiled teenager who is sent to a boarding school in England, where she learns the true meaning of friendship and stuff. The highlight is the absolutely bonkers-good soundtrack.
