If you are into BTS Hollywood stories, then add this to your list right away. The story introduces Mindy Kaling as an aspiring writer for late-night show host Emma Thompson.

But kudos to the way the film deals with the comedy without downplaying on the significance of the emotions it is meant to convey.

This crowd-pleaser from Gasper Noe is the director’s most sober attempt at mixing the ingredients of paranoia and insanity. Anyone who has seen Irreversible and Enters the Void would agree. Sofia Boutella’s dance crew call for an all-night celebration following a successful performance. But its too late until they realize their drinks have been spiked with a potent dose of LSD. What ensues next is an overpowering psychedelic experience as a cumulative effect of all the crushes, rivalries and violence amongst the crew members.

Although Fisherman Baker Dill is not doing this out of love for his ex-wife. She has offered him $10 million if the plan of this premeditated murder is successful. It’s not much of the story that falls into the quirky groove. It’s the weirdest turns the film takes. If you like weird, you are going to have a blast for sure.

Thurman stars as an a member of a group of assailants who are betrayed and left to die. The movie follows her journey of vengeance. Expect all the blood and gore as you would in a Tarantino movie.

HBO has been on a dropping spree lately but is known to make up for what has been removed with even more intriguing features. The carousel seems to just get better and interesting. But that sure could get overwhelming if you don’t have the guide at hand and the time to weigh your choices. So here you go!
We have prepared the guide you need with 8 movies that definitely deserve a spot on your watch list:
There is something solemnly unusual about the frames of Leaving Neverland. Be it the audible breathing and swallowing sounds filling interview segments or the allusive display of archived photos. Leaving Netherland documents the lives of victims who faced subversion by the hands of music and dance legend Michael Jackson. The documentary does not patronize the star but walks us through the darkest hallways of a predatory mind and its long term implications on the lives of victims. Many of us know Jackson’s rise as a dance icon, his struggle with racism and battle with deteriorating health owing to his skin bleaching procedures. Did battling with demons, also give rise to one? How else do you contemplate an act as grave as child molestation?
You cannot question the altruism in someone who gets arrested for taking a stand against a global crisis. But there is still too much truth shadowed by her larger than life image and the sense of accountability that follows. The doc sees Fonda candidly narrating the high and low points of her life that made her the person she is now. Not to mention how cautiously and sincerely the film investigates the facts using real resources.
Remember the time you thought Happy Death Day ends where it ended in 2017? With Happy Death Day 2U you need to make peace with the fact that if filmmakers can resurrect dead without making it look like a big deal, they can also revive a closed story to birth a sequel out of it. Christopher Landon realized he could squeeze more out of the premise and there we have Tree getting caught in the time warp again thanks to her love interest’s pal Ryan. Turns out he caused all this quantum physics, time muddling mess in the first place. Where in the first installment, Tree finds a way out of the time loop, in the second one, Ryan messes up again to put Tree through the same misery yet again. Landon’s script is a winner and so is Rothe’s performance.
Earl Stone’s desperate circumstances land in a driver’s job for a Mexican drug ring. But to his misery, he is not even aware of the nature of cargo he is asked to deliver. The man does an exceptional job as a driver and that leads him to be droned by DEA agent Colin Bates. Now that he has the money, his past deeds begin to haunt him which will either land him in prison or dead at the hands of the drug lord.
The human mind’s predisposition toward hardships is inadvertent. And that may well explain the Chris Hedges opening quote of the film- “War is a drug”. The film brings out the perspective in the most natural way possible. Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker rises in a typical war set up in the volatile regions of Iraq, this time solely focusing on the experiences of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team, zeroed in on one specific character- James. The hothead is a master in bomb disposal but manages to keep everyone at a distance thanks to his hot dog tendencies.
Dieter Dengler will be remembered for his great escape from the unbreakable POW camp in Laos. Warner Herzog’s commendable yet far from actuality charts the story of his break out from the impenetrable prison.
If you share an unprecedented liking for sci-fi and slasher movies this movie is it. Call it the soberest attempt at glorifying gore in the vein of science fiction and efficient storytelling. That’s the art director Leigh Whannell has mastered and upgrade proves it. The film overlaid on the foundation of “AI taking control of humanity” and then conveniently builds a plot with revenge fantasy. Whannell is known for his ever-evolving, gory murder tactics. You will get that a lot in this one too.
If you haven’t guessed the gist from the title, well here it is. The “miseducation” refers to her being sent to a remote area called God’s promise to “normalize” her sexuality. This happens in response to her being caught in the back seat of a car with a prom queen. The film explores the ridiculousness of the mindsets and the terrifying effects of being labeled gay with light and humory tone.
Trying to get into the holiday spirit and yet it’s not kicking in? Well then quit dwelling over futile practices like cookie baking and gift wrapping. We know exactly what will help you.
These 8 features that Hulu takes pride in calling Holiday films:
Starring the extraordinary Robert Downey Jr. and the ever adorable Holly Hunter, the film is helmed by Jodie Foster. The story charts the life of Claudia Larson (Played by Hunter) is forced to spend Christmas with her madcap family in Baltimore because Voila! Her daughter wants to spend vacation with her boyfriend! Drama and comedy evenly occupy the film’s best scenes which in a way is a writer’s way justifying familial imperfections.
Let us be honest here and agree that this is not exactly a holiday material. It’s about a bunch of high schoolers battling zombies. A more apt way would be to call it a Yuletide zombie romp packed with peppy beats. This critically acclaimed British indie feature holds a 78% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Trolls are bashing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” left right and center and if you agree with them, then you also are probably exhausted with the recurring tunes of holidays. For those who cannot resonate with mainstream Christmas films, this documentary explores all alternate genre of Christmas music filled with weird and off the wall holiday songs. Mitchell Kezin, the maker has a one on one chat with musicians who make independent Christmas music and the people who love it.
Cynically the concept of Santa Claus is quite creepy. A man who breaks into houses in the middle of the night leaving packages and munching snacks seems scary than angelic. Pardon the misanthropic spin on the happiest myth of Christmas but that’s what drives this film. A group of researchers blows up an ancient burial ground that brings the original Santa out of the shadows. And make no mistake, this Claus ain’t no “ho ho laughing, gift giving” old man! He is evil and turns a Finnish research facility into a battleground.
A spoiled rich kid ends up running out on her credit card limit and now has to take up a job and learn to be more responsible. The enticing part is the kind of job she chooses to inculcate sense of responsibility within. She takes up a dog walking job. Starring besides her is the Christmas movie legend Jonathan Bennet.
Hulu’s horror anthology Into the Dark gives us a film-long episode showcasing a junior struggling actor whose new job as a ragdoll Pooka totally messes up with his mind. The film also stars Dale Dickey of Winter’s None and Unbelievable.
Amongst all the movies we just talked about, none fits better into the mold of a Christmas film like A Very Terry Christmas. It is one of the most feel good Christmas features wherein the Brooklyn Nine Nine star sets the tone with phrases like “Ooh, don’t you just love a blue sky? A pretty, Christmas-y blue sky.” It is so good that if you might just get caught in the loop of watching it over and over.
A couple is drunk on New Year’s Eve and accidentally hit and kill a pedestrian. Dark huh? Well then don’t wait for morality to kick in. They do not turn themselves in. Instead, they take the cadaver home and wait until their blood alcohol levels normalize. Oh and this is when it gets creepy- Once they are sober they discover a piece of paper in the dead man’s pocket with their address on it. So much for a holiday movie.
Ever been in a discussion of shortlisting a movie with your family. Well, don’t even get me started on the choices of the kids.

So how do you prioritize and select a movie right for the occasion?
We have simplified that task for you. Here is a list of 8 family movies on Netflix just apt for every family member. Have a look!
This is a light-hearted feel-good film wherein the concept of ‘trying to find who my dad is’ is tackled with utmost simplicity. Sophie’s wedding weekend at her mom’s Greek island hotel becomes interesting. It’s a fun watch for every member of the family. The outdoor-summery theme will leave you all relaxed and cheered up.
It’s a great story with some amazing educational value. A political biopic by all means but absolutely recommended as a family film if all the folks have a thing for history and politics. The film zeroes in on the specific phase of Lincoln’s career associated with the 13th Amendment.
Coco won two Oscar awards and we cannot see why not. It deserves every bit of appreciation for the way it captures the Mexican lifestyle through a family drama. It explores the themes of death, desertion, family, and matriarchy in the most whimsical way possible. Children will love the vivid animation and elders too are left with some thinking to do.
An adorable children’s book adapted into an animated feature! It follows the adventures of an inventor and a geeky weather girl. An ‘invention gone wrong’ adventure where the two protagonists have to save the town from mutant food, raining from the sky.
The 90s classic is still a cult favorite for its unusual set up and storyline. Bill Murray an exhausted weatherman is made to live the same day over and over again. The film captures his evolution from a frustrated individual to a man who now puts his experience to use by living a better life. In the vein of sarcasm and comedy, this makes a perfect Sunday afternoon watch.
With crisp animated frames and a heartwarming story, this is a must-have on the list of family movies. The feature tackles profound philosophical concepts in the most humble manner.
The story of the 1868 novel has been transcribed into live-action countless times but this rendition is somewhat special. The stellar cast makes it sublime with their performances. The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Christian Bale, and Kirsten Dunst. There will be times when you laugh and then cry as the story of the March sisters unfolds.
There is not a child and adult who cannot love these movies. The first installment bowled the fans over and the second one is just as charming. It is the perfect blend of humor, wit, and action.
