1. Midsommar


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Vilhelm Blomgren, William Jackson Harper

One of the most hyped horror flicks to come out in 2019, Midsommar follows a couple who travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. However, the festivities quickly devolve into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.

Midsommar features incredible cinematography and a tremendous performance from Florence Pugh. More than that, it's just the right kind of unsettling. Get ready to spend most of the movie's runtime on the edge of your seat.

2. Late Night


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow

Late Night centres on an acclaimed late-night show host who is forced to hire a female writer due to her decline in popularity. There's plenty that divides the two women, but they're both interested in writing timely jokes, which might eventually work in both their favour.

At its core a female buddy film, Late Night is relaxing and well-written, with an appealing cast and plenty of lough-out-loud jokes. At the same time, the movie isn't afraid to approach deeper topics – and it does so with emotion and wit. Watch it when you need a little pick-me-up.

A treat for long-time fans of the show, the movie boasts both humour and drama, offering an extravagant and nostalgic trip back to Downton. As a nice bonus, the sets and costumes are just as lavish as you'd expect.

6. Rocketman


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

After completing his studies, Reginald begins to perform rock music at local pubs. Later, he meets a music manager who helps him rise to fame, but also brings plenty of chaos into his life. The rest, as they say, is history.

A biographical movie based on the life of Elton John, Rocketman boasts a fantastic performance from Taron Egerton in the lead role. Moreover, it manages to beautifully capture the highs and lows of artistic life, while also giving some insight into the musician’s exceptional journey. Whether or not you’re a fan, this is a must-watch.

7. Spider-Man: Far from Home


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya

Spider-Man: Far from Home sees Peter Parker struggling with the consequences of Avengers: Endgame. He joins his classmates on a European vacation planning to leave heroics behind, but has to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks that wreak havoc across the continent.

Lively and energetic, the movie has tons of action and comedy, making it a worthy blockbuster. Even better, it does a great job of portraying Parker’s journey to accepting the past and forging his way into an exciting future. Not to mention the fact that it’s always refreshing to watch a superhero hero flick that isn’t set in the US.

8. Men in Black: International


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani, Liam Neeson

A fresh entry in the Men in Black franchise, this flick follows the organization who has always protected the Earth from the scum of the universe. When aliens that have the ability to shape-shift into humans arrive on the planet, Agent H joins forces with Agent M, a new recruit, to save humanity once again.

Men in Black: International may not win awards for cleverness, but it’s a solidly entertaining entry in the franchise, mainly thanks to the Hemsworth/Thompson team-up. You’ll probably forget about the movie in a couple of months, but you’ll definitely have fun while watching.

  • Cast: Mahershala Ali, Viggo Mortensen, Linda Cardellini

Amidst rampant racism in the 1960s southern America, an African American pianist hires an Italian American bouncer to drive him through his venues. As their journey progresses, the two are forced to put their differences aside and, eventually, become closer.

An overall feel-good movie, Green Book offers some excellent performances, has plenty of heart, and won’t leave you hanging as far as laughs are concerned. It’s a trip well worth taking.

  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel

In 1862, headstrong scientist James Glaisher and wealthy young widow Amelia Wren mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. But as their chances of survival become slim, the two start to discover things about themselves that will help both of them find their place in the world.

The Aeronauts is a thrilling adventure from beginning to end, greatly benefiting from the amazing chemistry between the two leads, who also starred together in the universally beloved The Theory of Everything. Moreover, the special effects are well-done, creating some memorable visuals.

11. The Report


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Annette Bening, Jon Hamm

The Report chronicles the real investigation into the CIA's use of torture on suspected terrorists in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack. The movie centers on Daniel J. Jones, who works under a Senator and is tasked with running the investigation. He compiles a massive report about his findings, but discovers that the CIA isn’t particularly keen on bringing his discoveries to the public’s attention.

Here's the deal: The Report is mostly about people in suits staring at computers. Yet, the movie manages to be clever and tense, keeping viewers glued to the screen, eager to find out what happens next. Plus, the cast is A+, with Adam Driver in particular shining in the lead role.

12. Brittany Runs a Marathon


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Jillian Bell, Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Lil Rel Howery

Inspiring and often hilarious, Brittany Runs a Marathon follows a hard-partying woman who receives worrisome news during a doctor’s appointment. As a result, she gets motivated to lose weight and decides to compete in the New York City Marathon.

The premise of the movie can seem overdone - after all, it follows someone who is struggling to overcome the odds and achieve success. But Brittany Runs a Marathon is like a breath of fresh air, especially because Brittany isn’t always a likeable character. Yet, you won’t be able to help yourself and root for her anyway.

13. Eighth Grade


  • Year: 2018
  • Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Eighth Grade enjoyed plenty of buzz and acclaim when it came out in 2018, and for good reason. The movie centers on thirteen-year-old Kayla, who endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school, ending a school year that, so far, has been a disaster.

Realistic, funny, and very empathetic, Eighth Grade does a great job at showing the typical troubles associated with puberty. However, despite approaching themes like social media, the movie also has a timeless feel - so much so that any viewer, regardless of when they grew up, can resonate with the main character. The movie may draw you in with a promise of nostalgia and laughs, but the narrative is much more complex. You should let it surprise you.

14. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


  • Year: 2018
  • Cast: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin

After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. However, when he meets Peter Parker, he realizes that there are many others who share his special talents. Soon, the Spider-Men band together to defeat a dangerous villain.

Visually striking and wonderfully written, this animated movie is a treat for hardcore comic fans and newbies alike. The movie has pretty much everything - action, humor, diversity, enthusiasm, and ambition. Even better, in a time when superhero flicks are everywhere, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse manages to stand out from the crowd. We strongly advise you stream it immediately.

Charming and funny, Fantastic Mr. Fox follows the title character as he succumbs to his animal instincts after 12 years of bliss and raids the farms of his human neighbors. In the process, he endangers not only his family, but the entire animal community, who has to band together to fight the opposition.

Directed by Wes Anderson, the movie is a treat for viewers of all ages, with an engaging story and stunning animation. If you ever wanted to root for a knife-wielding rat, now’s your chance.

16. Suspiria


  • Year: 2018
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz

One of the most hyped horror releases of the last few months, Suspiria revolves around a world-renowned dance company, whose female directors are accused of witchcraft. At the same time, an inquisitive psychotherapist and a member of the troupe uncover dark and sinister secrets as they probe the depths of the studio's hidden underground chambers.

Bonkers and ambitious, this horrific flick is not recommended for the faint of heart. Everyone else, buckle up for a wild ride. Suspiria is inspired by the 1977 Italian film of the same title directed by Dario Argento, which quickly gained cult status. We’re guessing this one will follow in its footsteps in no time.

17. Beautiful Boy


  • Year: 2018
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan

Beautiful Boy centres on Nic, a teenager who seems to have it all - including talent, good grades, and a knack for several extracurricular activities. But when Nic's addiction to meth threatens to destroy everything, it will come down to his father to do whatever it takes to save his son and family.

Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell both deliver mesmerizing performances in this inspiring tale of addiction, survival, recovery, and relapse. Beautiful Boy is often devastating, but it’s a fascinating and important movie as it doesn’t glamorize drug use. Instead, it perfectly captures addiction in its most destructive form.

18. Generation Wealth


  • Year: 2018
  • Cast: Lauren Greenfield, Limo Bob, George W. Bush, Caitlyn Jenner

For the past 25 years, photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has travelled the world, documenting a vast range of cultural movements and moments. Yet, she realized that much of her work pointed at one uniting phenomenon: wealth culture. That’s what this documentary is all about - it examines materialism, celebrity culture, and social status.

Greenfield forces viewers to examine the current culture of wealth and understand that humanity should strive for balance - and she does so by showing, not telling, which makes this whole endeavour even more compelling. All in all, Generation Wealth might be a tad bleak, but it’s very thought-provoking.

19. The King of Comedy


  • Year: 1982
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Sandra Bernhard

The King of Comedy, directed by Martin Scorsese, is a satirical black comedy that follows Rupert, a mentally-deranged and unsuccessful stand-up comedian. After he meets a popular talk show host, Jerry Langford, he’s convinced that the encounter will lead to his big break. As a result, Rupert kidnaps Langford and ask for a guest spot on the talk show in exchange for his release.

A movie ahead of its time, The King of Comedy explores the desperation among common people striving to achieve fame and the lengths some fans are willing to go to in order to see their dreams come true. The movie is sharp and unsettling, offering some memorable performances and plenty to talk about once the end credits roll.

20. Indiana Jones 1 - 4


  • Year: 1989
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Denholm Elliott, Alison Doody

If you want to hear a heated debate, try asking my friends what the best Indiana Jones film is after they've all been drinking. There's always the purist who stands up for the original Raiders of the Lost Ark, Lucas and Spielberg's incredibly tight re-imagining of ye olde action serials. There's often an ever-so-slightly larger group who insist that the best entry was Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, a father and son quest for the Holy Grail. And then there'll be that edgier outlier who swears by the darker, heart-ripping antics of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Before fist fights can break out, my crew usually bond over one simple fact: despite our differences, we can universally agree on the letdown nature of Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Avoid it, stick to the original trilogy and you can't go wrong. You're guaranteed to be swinging into a priceless, (whip) cracking action-adventure series that belongs in a museum.

21. No Country For Old Men


Year: 2007
Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson

Prepare to meet Anton Chigurh, the most magnetic on-screen villain since Anthony Hopkins was laced into a face mask as Hannibal Lector. Chigurh's an absolute terminator, an implacable hitman hired to locate Llewelyn Moss, a good ol' boy who's stumbled across a suitcase full of cash left in a drug deal gone wrong. Slight problem: said luggage carries a fairly primitive tracking device, too, and what follows is a state-wide game of cat-and-mouse. To make matters even more complicated, an ageing and disillusioned Sheriff Bell is only half a step behind them both, plus the cartels have decided to hire a plan-B merc.

Admittedly, the ending isn't for everybody, but there's also a general consensus that everything leading up to it represents an incredibly taut neo-noir thriller. Couple this with intense moments of ultra-violent action, plus some darkly humorous musings on the moral rot in America, and No Country For Old Men is a modern masterpiece.

22. LA. Confidential


  • Year: 1997
  • Cast: Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell

Widely regarded as Hollywood's last great noir film, L.A. Confidential tells the 1950s tale of compromised dreams and the unfortunates who fell victim to the siren's song of Tinseltown. When a massacre takes place at a cafe and one of the dead is a young prostitute, further investigation reveals an employer who specializes in surgically altering “the wares” to better resemble movie stars. Cue: a much wider conspiracy that's picked apart by three vastly different law-enforcers. You have Ed Exley, an ice-cold careerist; Jack Vincennes, a spotlight-chasing "Hollywood Cop" who does studio consultancy; and Bud White, an ask-questions-later brute.

While director Curtis Hanson had his bases well covered with top-billed stars like Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger, he elevated this film from good to great by filling out his ensemble cast with relatively unknowns Guy Pearce and Russel Crowe. Allow yourself to be seduced by L.A. Confidential and you'll go on a complex, engrossing thrill ride that thoroughly deserves every Oscar it won.

23. Gleason


  • Year: 2016
  • Cast: Steve Gleason, Mike Gleason, Scott Fujita, Mike McKenzie

After being diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), formerly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, New Orleans Saints football player Steve Gleason decides to put up the best fight possible and record a series of video journals for his unborn son. When the battle starts to look insurmountable, the plan shifts to submitting this footage to charity to raise awareness about this disease as the film documents Gleason's slow deterioration over the course of a five-year period.

Equal parts inspirational, heartbreaking and brutally candid, Gleason runs the full gamut of human emotions. This is a front row seat to a man moving through the five stages of grief, plus the film juggles the themes of marital stress, religious conviction and even a bit of lighthearted toilet humour when the worst indignities of the disease kick in. This is a tough watch but an important one, too – an unflinching portrayal of a person fighting back against incredible adversity.
