Director: Steven Spielberg | Duration: 146 minutes | Genre: science fiction

Pour: Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O’Connor

A film that received largely mixed reviews upon its release, AI: Artificial Intelligence is one of the directors Steven Spielbergis the most underrated and deserves more credit for everything it can achieve. Based on the 1969 short story Supertoys last all summer long through Brian Aldissthe movie is about David (Haley Joel Osment), a robotic child raised by parents whose own son was placed in suspended animation after a rare illness. After initial hesitation, people begin to warm to David. However, their relationship soon becomes complicated, leaving us to wonder if this artificial child can ever be part of this family. The film was one that went through development hell after initially eyeing it Stanley Kubrick, who eventually gave up his directing duties to Spielberg. When it was finally released after years of delay, it was rejected by many. Times were good for the film, however, as it garnered newfound praise and acclaim. While the ending itself may still be divisive for many, it’s also what makes it a textbook Spielberg work.

Director: Iain Softley | Duration: 105 minutes | Genre: theatre

Pour: Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Matthew Lillard

A crime thriller that ends all crime thrillers hacker is one of those films that has endured despite initial struggles at the box office and a really poor initial critical reception. Telling the story of a group of high school hackers who take down the man has achieved cult status, and with good reason. That’s partly because the film is just plain fun, but it also serves as a time capsule to a time when the internet was an unfamiliar part of our lives. There have been scattered rumors over the years of a possible reboot with the director Ian Softley even hinted that there was interest, although nothing can capture the magic of the original from all those years ago. It remains as goofy and as pure in its portrayal of cyberspace as ever.

Director: Karyn Kusama | Duration: 102 minutes | Genre: horror

Stars: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody

They didn’t think we would pass up the opportunity to praise the great film Jennifer’s body, do you have? misunderstood upon its release, Karen Kusama‘s scathing horror comedy has now become one of the most beloved cult classics, and with good reason. It doesn’t just look better Megan Fox It absolutely devours the role, in more ways than one, but it has more than carved its place as one of the more enduring revenge films in recent memory. If you haven’t seen it yet, forget any misconceptions you have from the film’s misguided marketing and instead open yourself to all it can accomplish. If you’re lucky enough to know as little as possible, a devilish tidbit awaits, making the most of its self-aware horror parable.

Director: Tony Scott | Duration: 146 minutes | Genre: theatre

Pour: Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken, Dakota Fanning

This was an adaptation of the late blockbuster author Tony Scott, man on fire was another film that was largely rejected when it was released in 2004, although it still has something to offer after all these years. One of the main reasons for this is that it reunited Scott Denzel Washington with which you can’t go wrong. The veteran actor plays John W. Creasy, a former CIA agent dealing with guilt for his past actions who has been hired as a bodyguard for a wealthy family in Mexico. He befriends the family’s daughter, Lupita (Dakota Johnson), and when she’s kidnapped, he must find a way to get her back. What follows is a gruesome but undeniably compelling work that will have both Washington and Scott firing on all cylinders. The combination of fast-paced processing and a charismatic yet unnerving central performance makes it one that will always remain a solid repeat.

Watch on Prime Video

Director: Martin Scorsese | Duration: 138 minutes | Genre: thriller

Pour: Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, Mark Ruffalo

Directed by a certain director named Martin Scorsese, shutter Island is a psychological thriller where the horror comes from both the inner and outer world. It’s important to keep details about the plot hidden from those who haven’t seen it yet, as it’s crucial to go in with as little information as possible. The basics are that it follows US Marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Markus Ruffalo) while they head to a remote hospital for “criminal insane” to track down a killer who has apparently escaped. Upon arrival there seems to be a lot of strange things that get under your skin and tell as much about the place as it does about the visitors to outsiders. It remains a dynamic and devastating work that still leaves a hole in your stomach as you begin to understand the unsettling truth of what is happening in the story.

Watch on Prime Video

Director: Andreas Bujalski | Duration: 93 minutes | Genre: theatre

Pour: Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson, Shayna McHayle

If there’s one movie on this list that’s both most underrated and most underrated, this is it Support the girls. It has a spectacular Regina Hall as Lisa, the caring manager of a sports bar who is essentially a fictionalized version of Hooters. We mainly follow her over a single day as she tries to support her staff in dealing with various escalating complications. It’s one of those character studies that feels so real and authentic that it could be a documentary about the modern worker if you didn’t know otherwise. Each moment of humor then mixes with a more complicated sense of sadness as we watch Lisa and her team work to get through just another day at work. The result is a compassionate slice of cinema with one of the most cathartic endings one could wish for.

Watch on Prime Video

Director: Robert Eggers | Duration: 137 minutes | Genre: action drama

Pour: Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang

A film that interweaves the mystical with the macabre, The Northman sees Robert Eggers He works on a canvas larger than anything he’s done before, while demonstrating his dedication to the precise details of the craft. It follows the battle-hardened Viking Amleth (Alexander skarsgard) as he seeks revenge on the man who murdered his father in the 10th century AD. Dark and gruesome while still intriguing to behold, it is a work that keeps its feet firmly planted in the era while still grasping at the eternal of the supernatural. While there are some impressive action sequences, from an early one-shot sequence to a later one in the shadow of a fiery volcano, it’s also an experience that excels in the smaller moments too. A specific scene where Ethan Hawke when Amleth’s father, King Aurvandil War-Raven, delivers a monologue is so serious that it proves to be the most intriguing and memorable moment of the entire action epic. Whether you’ve seen it before or not, it’s a gripping film that shows Eggers remains as uncompromising as ever.
