Ralph breaks the Internet
Ralph breaks the Internet is an animated film with a highly original and unique idea. It is set in the world of the internet, which makes for an interesting story and amazing visuals. It also sheds light on some real life themes such as online culture, gaming and even toxic masculinity. However, it also brings to play the power of togetherness.

Ex Machina is one of the best Sci-Fi movies centered on the theme of Artificial Intelligence. The film has many twists and prompts for the user to think about and question the implications of Artificial Intelligence. A young programmer is chosen to test the human qualities of a beautiful robot. What unfolds however is something that both the programmer and his boss could not have expected.
The Witch is one of those rare horror movies that incorporate religious themes into its storyline. It slowly builds up the suspense and is a very engaging watch throughout. Its most intriguing part is you are never exactly sure who the witch is until the movie comes to a close. If you are into mild horror movies, this one is definitely a great watch.
Have you ever seen a movie entirely set inside a moving car? If not, then you need to watch Locke! This movie is an existential thriller that follows the life and conversations of its driver. Locke is a film that relies so much on the acting and dialogue and Tom Hardy really excels in that regard. It shows how much life can change in such a short time.
The 40-Year-Old Virgin
The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a raunchy comedy (as the title may suggest) but it was a heart as well. It’s about a 40 year old guy who has never had sex because he is not capable of approaching women. This was a huge hit back in the day and successfully combined vulgar sex comedy and emotional romantic comedy. If you are a fan of the comedic possibilities that come with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, this is the movie for you.
Pan’s Labyrinth is one of the greatest fantasy films of the 21st century! It has the power to transport you into another world with its awe-inspiring visuals and innovative script that blends the fantasy world with the political world. The movie also shed some light on the dark times when the Nazis took over Europe and tormented innocent people in the name of power.
Zombieland is a very entertaining horror comedy. It’s about a group of survivors travelling the country amidst a zombie apocalypse. There are moments of great comedy and great violence throughout. Ten years later after the 2009 premiere, the Zombieland sequel is finally here and it’s as great as the original one.
Scream is an absolute horror classic! It seamlessly incorporates elements of comedy and satire into its storyline and also parodies other classic horror films. The film is full of twists and turns and shocking violence. If you are looking for a real horror movie unlike Zombieland and The Witch, Scream will do it. High school students will have to rethink their entire setting after watching this 1996 movie. As if one scream wasn’t enough, you will get the horrific taste of it in a few more sequels.
The Terminator is the movie that launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. It is regarded as one of the definitive action movies of all time. It is set in a dystopian future and has a very intriguing story, fueled with some of the best action sequences set on film! It’s interesting that 2029 is not yet here after all those years since Terminator was premiered.
