5 Great LGBTQ Movies To Stream Online

by Kaylen Summers

Even before the industry was taken over by the ‘woke’

Bound (1996)

We know the Wachowskis for their cult-classic work Matrix. However, before their big-budget outing, their debut movie was centered around lesbian romance and the major studios were not okay with the idea. Thus the siblings had to go with a $6 million budget this gem of an LGBTQ cinema.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999)

Before Hollywood movie studios were open to talking about LGBTQ themes, movies like Boys Don’t Cry give audiences a glimpse of what was set for them. The movie is a dramatized adaptation of the real-life story of transman Brandon Teena, who was raped and killed by locals after realizing her biological gender.

The Boys in the Band (1970)

An LGBTQ movie in the 70s may sound crazy and it is for this reason that this movie deserves to be on this list. The movie is an onscreen adaptation of Mart Crowley’s popular 1968 off-Broadway play. A remarkable trivia about this movie is that it was released one year after the Stonewall riots.

Brokeback Mountain (2005)

One of the most remarkable LGBTQ movies that came out in the last decade came, Brokeback Mountain had the Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead. The actors play the role of two cowboys who are hired to tend the flock of sheep in Wyoming circa. The two end up developing feelings for each other even though they were married. What makes this movie different is that it showed Hollywood that homosexual romances can have the same intensity and depth as heterosexual relationships.

Call Me by Your Name (2017)

The latest addition to the list of mainstream LGBTQ movies of Hollywood, Call Me By Your Name is one of the most recognized movies on the list. This awards-season juggernaut is an adaptation of André Aciman’s novel by filmmaker Luca Guadinigno and tells the story about 17-year-old Elio who is on the verge of figuring out his sexuality, developing a crush for the twentysomething Oliver.

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011)

Tom Hanks plays the role of the father of a nine-year-old kid with Asperger syndrome. In order to keep his son engaged, he creates quests for him around New York. The movie is a little sloppy and doesn’t have a strong script like that of Forrest Gump, the name brand of Tom Hanks and other popular cast members saved this movie from being a total trainwreck. Don’t get the idea that this 2011 movie is not worth seeing. There are many pleasant, feel-good moments in this movie that are worth your time.

The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990)

When Brian De Palma decided to make a movie adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s bestseller, we did not expect it to be a top-to-bottom flop. If you are awestruck by Hanks’s performance onscreen, this movie is going to break your heart. It is super evident that he was a miscast in the movie as the Wall Street expert Sherman McCoy. However, the flick is worth a quick watch.

8 Sports Movies That Became International BlockBusters

by Kaylen Summers

The magic about sports movies is that they are independent of the sports they talk about. So people who don’t know the sport or don’t like sports can enjoy it, resonate with the emotion it is selling and also get inspired by it. But, this is only applicable to sports movies that are great. This means that there are a lot of bad sports movies out there that can easily ruin your day.

So, how will you avoid the bad ones and get the good ones?! One way to do it is with this list of sports movies. We have picked up some of the most intriguing sports movies that can surely make you emotional and root for the antagonist.

Bang the Drum Slowly (1973)

This TV movie is about the friendship between Chicago Bears players Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. The movie has a very young Robert De Niro in the role of a redneck from Georgia.  He is a Yankees catcher who soon reveals his starting-pitcher friend that he’s dying. We guarantee you that this sports movie is sure to make you cry.

The Boxer (1997)

Although we cannot consider this one as a typical sports movie, the narrative does revolve around a big game. Daniel Day-Lewis plays the role of a former IRA member and boxer. He is trying to navigate in the new world after serving 40 years in jail. Will his boxing skills be enough to help him survive?

Creed (2015)

Rush (2013)

In every sports movie, there is always someone to root for. It can be a team or an athlete. But, in the 2015 racing movie Rush, the movie makers made both the main characters bad guys. The movie is based on the intense real-life rivalry between Formula One racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The best thing about this sports movie is that it questions our need to place the main characters as good or bad.

A League of Their Own (1992)

There is nothing more charming to watch than a comedy about a women’s professional baseball league during World War II. With Tom Hanks acing the role of an alcoholic manager. This movie will surely be a touching, memorable laugh for you.

Rocky (1976)

Taking place long before all the sequels, the montage sequences, and before Stallone became chiseled up, this movie is the most inspirational for its simple narrative of an underdog fighting his way over against all obstacles.

Hoop Dreams (1994)

by Kaylen Summers

Parents who are having a hard time finding the perfect movies to watch with your kids, we got this. Amazon may not have a section labelled specially as family movies, but they do have films which suit the occasion. Here are 8 movies that you can watch with your kids without getting bored all along.

  1. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)

Image result for valerian and the city of a thousand planets (2017)Rated PG-13, IMDb score: 6.5/10

Luc Besson’s The Fifth element may not exactly fall within the confines of family movies, but Valerian sure does. The film is an adaptation of French comics and has a PG-13 rating. The film has its share of absurd ferocity but the kind that does not hurt the eyes since it is mostly computer-generated. Oh, and there is a sexy dance number by Rihanna!

 

  1. The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Space (2017)

Related imageRated G, IMDb score: N/A

Again a G-Rated feature which is safe for watching with children of all ages. Paul Hunts Cat in the Hat saga this time explores the wilderness of the solar system. This the absolute go-to if you want to get your kids started on the sci-fi space adventures.

 

  1. Power Rangers (2017)

Image result for Power Rangers (2017)Rated PG-13, IMDb score: 6.0/10

This reboot of the original Power Rangers film is a next-level adventure. Tidied up for the new-gen audience (older kids basically), it follows the power rangers dealing with some obnoxious rumour peddling happening at school. The violence is animated and the kids get to venture into the vivid world of the gang fighting evil monsters.

 

  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows (2016)

Related imageRated PG-13, IMDb score: 6/10

Before you pounce on our decision to add this movie to the list, wait! Agreed that this turtle spoof carries a load of foul language and toilet humour, but they have definitely sobered down on the sexual content. If that’s what had you worried and a little “Jackass” and “son of a b****” here and there does not bother you, go for it!

 

  1. Hugo (2011)

Image result for Hugo (2011)Rated PG, IMDb score: 7.5/10

A quirky ride power packed for a younger group of audiences is what Hugo is at large. The tale speaks of Hugo, an orphan who loses his father in a fire. While there is nothing particularly concerning or even alarming about the film, the tone adopted in the film by Sasha Baron Cohen’s character where she speaks of pregnancy and infidelity may have upset a few sections.

 

  1. Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)

Related imageRated PG, IMDb score: 6.2/10

This whimsical space adventure has two brothers (aged 6 and 10) put aside their conflicts and embark on a journey that will have them facing off against infuriated extra-terrestrial beasts. An absolute No-No if you despise foul language though!

 

  1. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

Related imageRated PG-13, IMDb score: 8.3/10

Are you surprised Indiana Jones made the list? You are probably thinking “why anyone in their right mind would want to show their children scenes of melting humans and skeletons”? We don’t want that either. The Franchise’s third instalment goes subtle on the element of “atrocious” and that is how it made the cut. Indy this time pairs up with his father Henry (played by Sean Connery) to give us a wholesome movie full of action, adventure and drama.

 

  1. Jack Frost (1979)

Image result for Jack Frost (1979)IMDb score: 7.2/10

Jack Frost visits the town every year and along with him brings wintertime. But this time fate takes an unexpected turn and the master of cold has his heart warmed by a local woman Elisa. Lovestruck, the conjurer pleads to become human. But the transformation comes with its share of troubles that Elisa’s family must now endure. The stop motion animation feature harbours certain terms that in the times could be considered offensive.

10 Hardcore Entertainers Available For Streaming

by Kaylen Summers

 

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

This one is an anthology that follows six stories for a duration of two hours. With Western revisionism at the heart of the film, the Coen brothers play up almost every element that forms a part of conventional cinema in a few handpicked genres – Gothic mysteries, romance, and slapstick comedy. Amidst abundant violence and killings, the film gallops across the canvas of western legends. A rather intelligently chronicled account highlighting the nihilistic stains in the fabric of civilizational history.

Snatch (2000)

Made in his iconic film making style, this crime comedy from Guy Ritchie is a fun British jaunt starring Brad Pitt and Jason Statham. While one part of the plot follows the diamond thief Benicio del Toro, the other part is about the small-time boxing promoter played by Statham. del Toro is looking to sell his stolen goods to some double-crossing gangsters. On the other hand, Statham is on the run from a ruthless drug lord who loves to torture.

The Apartment (1960)

C.C. Baxter decides to play wingman to his philandering office superiors by lending them his apartment for their illicit affairs just to get into their good books. His trade-off seems fair until he finds out that his crush has an affair with his boss and that is just the beginning of Baxter’s miserable yet humorous romantic tragedy. 

The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

Harold Meyerowitz is a sculpting artist whose borderline narcissism overrides his instincts as a father. Thanks to this attitude he has managed to raise two sons with malignant thoughts for one another, waiting to explode at any given time. There is also a daughter who does not die for attention and comes across as the sensible one of the lot with her limited yet poignant dialogues. A deviant family drama garnished with Noah Baumbach’s hallmark astringent comedy!

The Late Bloomer (2016)

The title marks the late onset of puberty for Peter Newmans who happens to be a sex therapist himself. Tragic? Well just wait until you see how the puberty that is 15 years late to arrive hits him overwhelmingly. All the mood swings and voice cracking happen in just one single month. The movie is strictly not recommended if you find it uncomfortable discussing sex out in the open. Directed by Kevin Pollack and starring Johnny Simmons in the lead role, this movie is a downright horny comedy.

Devil (2010)

Produced and written by none other than M. Night Shyamalan, this movie has one hell of a twisted ending. The flick is about a group of people stuck in an elevator together. Soon, they start dying one by one and it becomes obvious that one among them is behind all this. The movie ends with a shocking reveal of who really is the devil among them.

Beetlejuice (1988)

A ghost couple is disturbed by the fact that their home is haunted by a conceited human family. Quite a reversal of roles from the traditional premise of horror movies, this forms the basis for the humorous tale. Beetlejuice ( Michael Keaton) is the star of the show who is hired by the couple to free themselves from the wrath of the humans. Directed by Tim Burton, the spooky horror is carried substantially by Keaton with his manic performance until the very end.

Four Weddings and a Funeral(1994)

Don’t mistake it with the recent miniseries on Hulu. We are definitely talking about the classic one. This romantic comedy is so good that you’ll be amazed to know that it is directed by the same person who helmed the Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire movie. Starring Hugh Grant, Four Weddings and a Funeral  tells the story of Charlie, who is uncomfortably busy with four weddings and a funeral. However, among the weirdly big circle of friends present at each event, Charlie keeps on encountering the beautiful American Carrie, played by Andie McDoweel.

Boomerang (1992)

The king of comedy, Eddie Murphy is an executive at an advertising firm and leads a highly exciting life as a professional and a philanderer. This is until his new female boss (Robin Givens) with a similar personality only amplified in magnitude gives him a taste of his own medicine and there begins his comeuppance. Set in the backdrop of a misogynistic culture of corporate, the filmmaker conveys the message of love and Karma in the vein of what can be viewed as a sophisticated parody.

Secretary (2002)

Best PG-13 Horror Movies That Are Too Frightening

by Kaylen Summers

There is this notion that a good horror movie needs a lot of bloodshed and violence. However, there are many PG13 movies that have proved us wrong. These movies have spooked us, thrilled us and some have even made us scream our lungs out.

Without further ado, here are some of the best PG-13 horror movies that are too good.

Drag Me to Hell (2009)

While a young woman grieving about the loss of her 80’s actress mother, she is pulled into one of her mom’s most famous slasher movies. After getting reunited, the mother-daughter duo must now fight off the film’s killer.

1408 (2007)

This adaption is of a lesser-known tale from Stephen King. The movie may be PG13, but it has enough of King’s trademark pulpy gore and scatological humor to give you chilling ghostly thrills and psychological horrors.

The Ring (2002)

There is nothing more spooky than The Ring, when it comes to PG13 horror. It is by far the scariest PG-13 movie ever made. The movie is an adaptation of the Japanese film Ringu, which is outstanding source material. The concept of unavoidable viral death and some scary iconography, this own is a cult classic.

What Lies Beneath (2000)

What Lies Beneath definitely has some major PG13 chills to offer. The movie revolves around the life of Claire and Norman who has moved back to his old house. As usual, the couple finds some spooky stuff happening around them. The movie is best for its casting of Harrison Ford. It’s not every day that you see him play the bad guy. (even though he is often the on-screen scoundrel).

Most Romantic Movies Available On Hulu

by Kaylen Summers

Pretty in Pink (1986)

When it comes to rom-coms, Pretty in Pink is iconic like every other John Hughes movie in the genre. Molly Ringwald plays the role of Andie Walsh, a young teenage girl who is in love with the rich boy Blane. Redefining the concept of teenage lovesickness on film, the core construct of this flick resonates with young audiences even today. If you are looking for some burning teenage love, then Pretty in Pink will be the right one to start from.

Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

Don’t mistake it with the recent miniseries on Hulu. We are definitely talking about the classic one. This romantic comedy is so good that you’ll be amazed to know that it is directed by the same person who helmed the Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire movie. Starring Hugh Grant, Four Weddings and a Funeral  tells the story of Charlie, who is uncomfortably busy with four weddings and a funeral. However, among the weirdly big circle of friends present at each event, Charlie keeps on encountering the beautiful American Carrie, played by Andie McDoweel.

Chasing Amy (1997)

Yes, you heard it right. Back in the ’90s, this movie was nicknamed as the “Ben Affleck falls in love with a lesbian” movie. Though the plot is pretty much that, Chasing Amy is more about love than just sexual politics. It explores the male insecurity in finding love and maintaining it and other human emotions. The movie is a wonderfully crafted rom-com with a bittersweet ending.

Sixteen Candles (1984)

John Hughes is back again on the list with the teenage masterpiece Sixteen Candles. More than just a romance, this iconic movie is a coming-of-age comedy flick. However, its core is pure and its ending truly romantic. The movie follows 16-year-old Sam Baker (Molly Ringwald) on her birthday. Her parents have completely forgotten about their daughter’s birthday and her crush, Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) doesn’t even know she exists.

Let the Right One In (2008)

This one will surely not be your first choice for a romantic movie on Hulu. However, there is something about Let the Right One In that makes it romantic and sweet from all the other movies. Yes, the flick is about a little boy and a little girl vampire and it’s a little spooky at times. But, no one will ever deny how sweet it is for this movie to present the beloved as the ultimate protector for her lover.

Secretary (2002)

Are all romances about puppy dogs and flowers? This movie says otherwise. From the sexual complexities of dominance and submission to some good old fashioned BDSM, this movie will make you rethink about the generic love stories. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, the movie is about Lee Holloway who takes a job as a secretary for E. Edward Grey (James Spader). The two soon embark on an unusual romantic relationship…

Oh, wait! Does the plot sound familiar to you? It is because this movie is everything 50 Shades of Grey tried to be- even down to the protagonist with ‘Grey’ as the second name.

Sense and Sensibility (1993)

Adapted from the Jane Austen novel of the same name, the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility is filled with talent both on camera and behind. Directed by Oscar-winner Ang Lee, the movie is surprisingly scripted by Emma Thompson. (The same actress who starred in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee.)

XX/XY (2002)

That’s a pretty awesome title, right?!  XX/XY refers to the two chromosomal pairings that make up women and men respectively. The movie, on the other hand, has nothing to do with genetics. It is about two women and one man who are entangled up together in a turmoil of emotions. Two college roommates, Sam (Maya Stange) and Thea (Kathleen Robertson) have a wild sexual encounter with animator Coles (Mark Ruffalo). Going through their relationship, the movie explores how one treats passion differently in young adulthood and adulthood.

Best Family Movies To Watch During Quarantine

by Kaylen Summers

Hugo (2011)

A quirky ride power packed for younger groups of audiences is what Hugo is at large. The tale speaks of Hugo, an orphan who loses his father in a fire. While there is nothing particularly concerning or even alarming about the film, the tone adopted in the film by Sasha Baron Cohen’s character where she speaks of pregnancy and infidelity may have upset a few sections.

Minions (2015)

You know how kids’ movies are. They are silly, filled with humor and a simple narrative easy for the little ones to understand. But when critics got sight of Minions, they instantly hated the movie. Why? Because critics are all adults and not kids. Though the Despicable Me spin-off initially got only a 50% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it went on to earn a global box office haul of over $1 billion.

The Terminal (2004)

Tom Hanks is not the guy you want to travel with. This time he is not stuck on an island. He is stuck at the airport. Viktor Navorski lost his country for some political reasons. But, the problem is he was on the plane when this whole thing happened. Now, he’s stranded at Kennedy Airport with a passport that nobody recognizes.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Even though this is a remake of the original 1947 film, this has a following of its own. Kris Kringle is the acting Santa at Cole’s Department Store in New York. His mission is to bring a little holiday magic to the children he meets. Eventually, everyone starts to think that he is the real Santa Claus. This heartwarming film will surely make your holiday season special.

The Meg (2018)

There is no doubt that The Meg was nothing more than an ultra-budget B-movie with Jason Statham in the lead role. Critics and domestic audiences hated the movie for its hollow theme and crappy plot. However, things were a little different for the Chinese audience. The movie became a blockbuster in China, grossing over $500 million at the worldwide box office.

Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)

This whimsical space adventure has two brothers (aged 6 and 10) put aside their conflicts embark on a journey that will have them facing off against infuriated extra-terrestrial beasts. However, this movie is an absolute No-No if you despise foul language though!

Boxing is one of the most intimate sports about self-respect and raw power. While the sport has its set of huge audiences and fans, there are many movies that try to capitalize on that. Don’t take it wrong, as these movies are equally brilliant and artsy as any other masterpiece Hollywood movie out there.

With that being said, here are some of the most captivating boxing movies out there.

Rocky

There is no other place to start his list than with Rocky.

When We Were Kings

This one is more of a documentary than a movie. When Muhammad Ali was 3, many thought that he was past his prime. During this time, ten-years-younger George Foreman was the heavyweight champion of the world. Promoter Don King sets up the fight of a century between these too- the “Rumble in the Jungle”. The spectacle was so big that it had a musical festival by some of America’s top black performers.

Southpaw

The reigning junior middleweight boxing champion Billy “The Great” Hope has a grand career, a caring wife and daughter, but a lavish lifestyle. Unfortunately, a tragedy strikes them and  Billy is thrown rock bottom. He loses his family, his house and his manager. However,  Tick Willis, a former fighter comes to his rescue and trains him. Now, he must reclaim the fight against fate and reclaim the trust of those he loves.

Gladiator

This adds an extra bone-chilling shiver to the voyeuristic deaths he/she does on-screen.

8 Movies On Hulu To Make You Fall In Love

by Kaylen Summers

Whether it’s break-up or patch up, we all love watching a good romance unfold on our screen. But, finding these feel-good rom-coms can be a miserable task at times. (Admit it! We all have been there.)

However, if you are on Hulu, then there is an extensive collection of romantic flick that can easily connect with your soft side. From classics to little-known favorites, here is a list of the best movie love stories that you can find on Hulu. The next time you’re craving for a rom-com, you can simply pick one from the list or binge-watch them all.

Pretty in Pink (1986)

When it comes to rom-coms, Pretty in Pink is iconic like every other John Hughes movie in the genre. Molly Ringwald plays the role of Andie Walsh, a young teenage girl who is in love with the rich boy Blane. Redefining the concept of teenage lovesickness on film, the core construct of this flick resonates with young audiences even today. If you are looking for some burning teenage love, then Pretty in Pink will be the right one to start from.

Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

Don’t mistake it with the recent miniseries on Hulu. We are definitely talking about the classic one. This romantic comedy is so good that you’ll be amazed to know that it is directed by the same person who helmed the Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire movie. Starring Hugh Grant, Four Weddings and a Funeral  tells the story of Charlie, who is uncomfortably busy with four weddings and a funeral. However, among the weirdly big circle of friends present at each event, Charlie keeps on encountering the beautiful American Carrie, played by Andie McDoweel.

Chasing Amy (1997)

Yes, you heard it right. Back in the ’90s, this movie was nicknamed as the “Ben Affleck falls in love with a lesbian” movie. Though the plot is pretty much that, Chasing Amy is more about love than just sexual politics. It explores the male insecurity in finding love and maintaining it and other human emotions. The movie is a wonderfully crafted rom-com with a bittersweet ending.

Sixteen Candles (1984)

John Hughes is back again on the list with the teenage masterpiece Sixteen Candles. More than just a romance, this iconic movie is a coming-of-age comedy flick. However, its core is pure and its ending truly romantic. The movie follows 16-year-old Sam Baker (Molly Ringwald) on her birthday. Her parents have completely forgotten about their daughter’s birthday and her crush, Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) doesn’t even know she exists.

Let the Right One In (2008)

This one will surely not be your first choice for a romantic movie on Hulu. However, there is something about Let the Right One In that makes it romantic and sweet from all the other movies. Yes, the flick is about a little boy and a little girl vampire and it’s a little spooky at times. But, no one will ever deny how sweet it is for this movie to present the beloved as the ultimate protector for her lover.

Secretary (2002)

Are all romances about puppy dogs and flowers? This movie says otherwise. From the sexual complexities of dominance and submission to some good old fashioned BDSM, this movie will make you rethink about the generic love stories. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, the movie is about Lee Holloway who takes a job as a secretary for E. Edward Grey (James Spader). The two soon embark on an unusual romantic relationship…

Oh, wait! Does the plot sound familiar to you? It is because this movie is everything 50 Shades of Grey tried to be- even down to the protagonist with ‘Grey’ as the second name.

Sense and Sensibility (1993)

Adapted from the Jane Austen novel of the same name, the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility is filled with talent both on camera and behind. Directed by Oscar-winner Ang Lee, the movie is surprisingly scripted by Emma Thompson. (The same actress who starred in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee.)

XX/XY (2002)

That’s a pretty awesome title, right?!  XX/XY refers to the two chromosomal pairings that make up women and men respectively. The movie, on the other hand, has nothing to do with genetics. It is about two women and one man who are entangled up together in a turmoil of emotions. Two college roommates, Sam (Maya Stange) and Thea (Kathleen Robertson) have a wild sexual encounter with animator Coles (Mark Ruffalo). Going through their relationship, the movie explores how one treats passion differently in young adulthood and adulthood.
