Archipelago (2010)

Watch the movie for how the directly brilliantly handled the laughable quirks of the English upper-middle class.

6 Movies on Amazon Prime That Are Too Scary To Watch

by Kaylen Summers

Everyone knows how complicated the “browse” function on the streaming platform can be at times and at times, finding the right movies for the Halloween season can itself be a super scary thing.

Since no one likes to get lost in the infinite streaming scroll, we have decided to bring the cream of the crop to the forefront. Get your popcorn ready for some spooky times, because we have everything from classic Italian Giallo movies to the 1980s slashers.

Here is our list for the best horror movies to watch Amazon Prime:

1. Final Exam (1981)

⭐4.7/10 ⌛1h 29min

Released during the early slasher boom, Final Exam has all the basic ingredients for a  Halloween slasher flick. The movie takes place on a college campus and has some of the memorable idiosyncrasies from the golden era of the genre. The identity of the killer or his motive is never revealed. This adds an extra bone-chilling shiver to the voyeuristic deaths he/she does on-screen. The movie may feel clumsy at times, but it surely pushed the “death-stalks-campus” genre further for future films like Happy Death DayThe House on Sorority Row and Graduation Day.

2. The Woman in Black (2012)

⭐6.4/10 ⌛1h 35min

This modern Hammer Horror film stands unique for producing a traditional ghost story in 2012. With Daniel Radcliffe making his first ‘adult’ role after the Harry Potter movies, the Victorian-era story tells about a lawyer who travels to the country to negotiate the sale of a house. However, he soon realizes that it is haunted by the spirit of the Woman in Black. If you are a fan of the classic Sam Raimi movie Drag Me to Hell, then this ghost story is your cup of tea.

3. Frankenstein’s Army (2013)

⭐5.3/10 ⌛1h 24min

Looking for some Indie horror magic?! This found-footage horror is sure to give you the same chills that you felt seeing Paranormal Activity. The story is of a troop of Russian soldiers during WWII. While infiltrating a German compound, they realize that they are actually in the testing grounds of a Frankenstein-descendent mad scientist. The Russian soldiers soon end up fighting for their lives against the undead soldiers.

4. We Are Still Here (2015)

⭐5.7/10 ⌛1h 24min

We Are Still Here will undoubtedly be the single most terrifying movie to be released back in 2015. Different from the other movies of the genre, this flick begins at the bloodbath itself. Apparently, the director doesn’t wait much for baiting or switching and confidently takes us right into the danger.

5. It Comes at Night (2017)

8 End of the World Movies on Amazon Prime

by Emily Keen

It is one among the possibilities that we all are discussing or combination of many catastrophes that could bring the end of our civilization. We don’t know for sure. Over the years, cinema materialized many of those theories on screen. The beliefs that capture the minds of the majority are often the ones most experimented on cinematically.

In the process she loses herself and becomes this extreme evangelistic Christian who believes that the world is headed towards judgment day.

 

  1. On the Beach (1959)

  1. Miracle Mile (1988)

Image result for Miracle Mile movieA man just found out that a nuclear strike is about to hit in 70 minutes and that could be the end of life as he knows it. There begins his quest to find his new flame on the streets of LA as he plans to escape the probable site of destruction in a helicopter with her.

Image result for This is The End movieRight from monsters visual effects to vulgar humour, the Seth Rogen fare gets everything right.

8 Family Friendly Movies on Amazon Prime

by Emily Keen

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.

8 Best Movies to Stream on Amazon Prime Right Now

by Emily Keen

Too much time is lost each day scrolling through the overwhelming options available on streaming channels. In the hope of getting the gist and finding the right movie, you keep analyzing titles and scan through the descriptions but end up more confused about which one is right for the occasion.

We thought we could scale down the level of misery for you by helping you pick some of the best movies that are available on Amazon right now. So here goes:

 

  1. Midsommar

Related imageA limerick of classics such as The Wickerman, the film unwinds in the backdrop of a stunning summer solstice that almost blinds you out to the technical mastery at times. Ari Aster’s third attempt at sending you down hell hole of savagery is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Through the landscape of grief, codependence, and angst, follows an extraordinary performance from Florence Pugh. Pugh, enroute on a trip with her boyfriend and his friends ends up in the middle of a pagan ritual which points untangles into a pitch dark comedy.

 

  1. The Report

Related imageContagion and Side Effects writer Scott Z. Burns’ directorial debut is a procedural thriller aimed at exposing CIA’s use of torture post 9/11 attacks through a senate investigation. Adam Driver heads the probing team at the command of Dianne Feinstein. This is a skillfully crafted and sharply executed thriller that in no way deviates from the central gist. And what shall end into a Report as the title suggests!

 

  1. Late Night

Image result for Late NightIf 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 here idealistic principles face off against the practical and surviving spirit of the women she idolizes and the all-male writer staff. The film starts high on laughs and ends on a surprisingly emotional note. Thompson is incredible as usual and Kaling is phenomenal as a charming and innocent novice.

 

  1. The Terminator

Image result for The TerminatorA relentless mash-up of sci-fi, drama, and action, The Terminator was the breakout film for the legendary James Cameron. The film meticulously traverses through the concepts of drama and romance in the vein of a full-blown sci-fi script. The cult favorite is one of Linda Hamilton’s iconic roles packed with some high voltage action scenes and comes across as an extraordinary buildup of the script by Cameron.

 

  1. Instant Family

Related imageAn intense and honest film pertaining to the positive and negative aspects of foster home parenting. But kudos to the way the film deals with the comedy without downplaying on the significance of the emotions it is meant to convey. Rose Byrne is someone to be treasured and celebrated for the way she has held up in the comical genre for all these years. She outdoes herself in this one and that is all we can say.

 

  1. A Simple Favor

Related imageIt is twisted, but it is gorgeous! Even with so much absurdity going around, A simple Favor keeps you hooked until the end revealing secrets and weird details at each turn. A single mother (Anna Kendrick) agrees to look after Blake Lively’s son while she is away. But the situation takes a bizarre turn when Lively goes missing and a series of truths begin to unravel about her mysterious life.

 

  1. Climax

Image result for ClimaxThis 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.  This is one of those tales that will make you exhale heavily and slowly as anxiousness begins to crawl up the nerves.

 

  1. Serenity

Related imageSerenity is one of the quirkiest films of 2019. The plot is a straightforward “rescue my ex-wife from her abusive husband” story. 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.

‘The Aeronauts’ Review

by Kaylen Summers

Set in the 1860s, The Aeronauts is an original movie from Amazon Prime, that aims for high-flying adventure. But, its dull and predictable narrative keeps on pulling it down.

Directed by Tom Hooper, the movie is scripted by Jack Thorne. Hooper is an Academy Award winner known for films like John Adams, The Danish Girl and The King’s Speech. Thorne, who is a well-known playwright, made his movie debut by penning the critically acclaimed The Scouting Book for Boys.

Mostly a fantasy tale, The Aeronauts is an account about the Victorian meteorologist James Glaisher and his record-breaking balloon ascent. However, there are many changes from the original story and the major one is how Glaisher’s actual partner is replaced with a fictional female character. There is now nothing wrong with this gender swap. But, the problem is how they executed it. With the newly added B-plot overshadowing, the already exciting story of Glaisher appears less relevant.

The Aeronauts has a top tier cast and good visual effects. Yet the makers have failed to make the characters interesting. This critically affects the movie, as the plot has nothing more to offer than just a balloon hurtling into the unknown. If the characters we more engaging, then the movie would have become much more entertaining.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne had a remarkable performance together in The Theory of Everything. But, the same pair fails drastically onscreen this time with characters that lack substance. The audience, as a result, will find it hard to root for such boring protagonists.

Even with decent production value, The Aeronauts is neither entertaining nor engaging.

Here is the trailer for the movie:

8 Great Alien Invasion Movies On Amazon Prime

by Kaylen Summers

Perhaps the most (over)used story-line in the genre of science fiction is about alien invasions. While we are still looking for life beyond our little blue planet, the curiosity of them finding us first has always been haunting us. Sci-fi movies about alien invasion are perfect projections of these fear and excitement.

Over the years, these movies have shown as many aliens invading our home planet- some cute and cuddly while others are slimy and horrifying. Whatever the case may be, they have always entertained us. Which is why we are giving you 8 great alien invasion movies for you to watch on Amazon Prime.

Here are our picks:

Battleship (2012)

2h 11min | Thriller, Action, Adventure, Science Fiction

Remember the radio signals that are sending into space? Well, it finally got a reply from ‘Planet G’. As a result, several alien crafts splashes down in the waters off Hawaii. Lieutenant Alex Hopper is a weapons officer and part of an international naval coalition. They become the world’s last hope for survival in the fight against the hostile alien force of unbelievable strength.

Battle: Los Angeles (2011)

1h 56min | Action, Science Fiction

Like every other alien invasion movie, here also the Earth is under attack by unknown forces.  The world’s great cities are falling and somehow Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind. As they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before,  it is now up to a Marine staff sergeant and his new platoon save humanity from the creatures.

Passengers (2016)

1h 56min | Drama, Romance, Science Fiction

This is not something you will not consider as an alien invasion. But it is too good not to be included in the list. In a distant future, a spacecraft is traveling to a faraway colony planet.  The craft is transporting thousands of people. However, there happens to be a malfunction in its sleep chambers and two of its passengers are awakened 90 years early.

War of the Worlds (2005)

1h 56min | Adventure, Thriller, Science Fiction

Almost an adaptation of the classic novel, this one tells about Ray Ferrier. He is a divorced dockworker and a less-than-perfect father. However, things are about to change as he is trying to keep his teenage son and young daughter while the world is getting invaded by aliens. Talk about a rough weekend!!

The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)

1h 59min | Action, Science Fiction

Another exclusion from the general alien invasion plotline. But, this one also deserves to be here for sharing a similar storyline. Riddick is an escaped convict who has been outrunning ruthless bounty hunters for years. Suddenly, he becomes part of a fight for the future of humanity. The lone, reluctant hero must now wage an incredible battle on fantastic and deadly worlds to save humanity from annihilation.

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

2h 4min | Science Fiction, Fantasy, Action, Adventure

Yeah!! It not that great of a movie to watch. But, you have to admit that it is not easy to find a sci-fi movie that is more fantasy than sci-fi.  The movie takes place in a universe where human genetic material is a super precious commodity.  An impoverished young Earth woman finds herself becoming the key to strategic tactics and internal conflicts within a powerful dynasty.

Men in Black (1997)

1h 38min | Action, Adventure, Comedy, Science Fiction

Men In Black is all about not starting an alien invasion. According to the movie, the aliens are not coming- they are already here. However, there are some aliens who believe that they can take over the universe and it is the duty of the MIB agents to stop them and save the day.

Evolution (2001)

1h 41min | Action, Comedy, Science Fiction

Here is a comedy blend to the awfully serious sub-genre. A meteor hits our planet and releases alien life forms.  Julianne Moore, Seann William Scott, Orlando Jones, and David Duchovny are the only people who can save us from the aliens taking over the world. Trust them with this mission, however, can be a huge problem…  to Earth.
