2. Zack Snyder's Justice League


Year: 2021
Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher

Following a relentless social media campaign, DC fans finally got what they wanted – the movie Justice League as Zack Snyder intended it. While the plot is the same as in the 2017 original, everything in this version is different – from the costumes to the music to the action sequences. The movie is also 4 hours, so there's plenty of bonus content.

After Superman's great sacrifice, Batman is convinced that the world will face a big threat in the near future. With the help of Wonder Woman, he reaches out to other individuals with special abilities, hoping they can form an alliance to defend humanity. Enter Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. If you're a DC fan, this movie will be everything you've ever wished for.

4. Small Axe


Year: 2020
Cast: Gary Beadle, John Boyega, Sheyi Cole, Kenyah Sandy

An anthology film series created and directed by Steve McQueen, Small Axe is comprised of 5 films: Mangrove, Lovers Rock, Red, White and Blue, Alex Wheatle and Education. Each of them tackles themes that touch on the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s. Each of them is stunning.

While you can watch them all in a single sitting if you're up for a lengthy marathon, we recommend spreading them out. You might need some time to properly digest their brilliance.

5. Judy


Year: 2019
Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock

A biographical drama, Judy is based on the life of actress Judy Garland. The movie is mostly set 30 years after Garland starred in The Wizard of Oz, as she arrives in London to perform sold-out shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub. We also get flashbacks to Garland's teen years and previous endeavours.

Renée Zellweger gives a tremendous performance in the lead role – which won her the Academy Award for Best Actress. More than that, Judy is a moving tribute to a beloved international icon, so you should definitely tune in if you're a Garland fan.

6. Sorry We Missed You


Year: 2019
Cast: Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone

Ricky and his family have been struggling with debt for years when things seem to be turning around thanks to a shiny new van that gives him the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. However, he and his wife end up trapped in a vicious circle and pulled in different directions, which takes a toll on their loved ones.

Heartbreaking but necessary, Sorry We Missed You is a devastating portrayal of the strain getting out of debt puts on a family, but also of how society's obsession with convenience comes at a great cost. Thought-provoking, to say the least.

8. The Hunt


Year: 2020
Cast: Betty Gilpin, Hilary Swank, Ike Barinholtz, Emma Roberts

A dozen strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are or how they got there. They don't know they've been chosen for a very specific purpose: ruthless elitists plan on hunting them for sport. However, their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted turns the tables on her pursuers.

A darkly funny action thriller, The Hunt is violent and satirical, intriguing and bold. It might not be everyone's cup of tea – but if dark humour and social commentary are your jam, we recommend you watch it ASAP.

9. Emma


Year: 2020
Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Johnny Flynn, Mia Goth

Based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel of the same name, Emma follows the antics of a young woman living in Regency-era England. She's well-meaning but selfish and often meddles in the love lives of her friends.

Anya Taylor-Joy is a joy to watch in the lead role, managing to perfectly capture the snobbery of Austen's character. We're also happy to report that the movie does the source material justice – whether you're familiar with the novel or not, you'll have a fun time if you tune in.

11. Tenet


Year: 2020
Cast: Juhan Ulfsak, Jefferson Hall, Ivo Uukkivi, Andrew Howard

Tenet is a mind-bending movie that will leave you scratching your head, hopefully in a good way. Given that it's coming from Christopher Nolan, that's not at all surprising.

The action revolves around a secret agent who learns to manipulate the flow of time and has to prevent an attack from the future. That's putting things simply. We strongly advise you to go into Tenet completely blind and let the movie surprise you. The cinematography is the stuff of dreams.

Bad Education revolves around the beloved superintendent of New York's Roslyn school district and his staff, who become the prime suspects in the unfolding of the single largest public school embezzlement scandal in American history.

The movie offers plenty of laughs and a powerful message, which makes it a win in our book. It also benefits from a tremendous performance from Hugh Jackman, who shines in the lead role.

In Rogue, Megan Fox plays a mercenary in charge of a squad of soldiers whose mission is to rescue hostages in a remote part of Africa. When something goes terribly wrong, the team is stranded and has to face off against local rebels… and local fauna!
