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.

Because you really need to see this to understand how twisted this tale can be. This is one movie that has literally earned its place on this list.

Gerald’s Game (2017)

Gerald’s Game is very simple in its premise. When her husband’s sex game goes wrong, Jessie is left handcuffed to a bed in a remote lake house. Tapping on the basic fears in oneself, this psychological horror movie is about how far a person will go to stay alive.

The Invitation (2015)

 Primal Fear (1996)

Edward Norton plays the role of a stuttering altar boy in this legal thriller. He is accused of murder.

Raw (2016)

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.

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)

⭐6.2/10 ⌛1h 31min

Do you remember the movies where most of the important characters die by the end?! It Comes at Night is one such horror movie.

6 Netflix Movies With Awesome Twist Ending

by Kaylen Summers

A good plot-twist in the third act can surely make the movie experience worth it. There is nothing like investing a good 90, 95 minutes in a story and then out of nowhere the ending completely turning everything you saw upside down. These movie moments are so priceless that they become the most lauded and crucial aspect of the film.

Take M. Night Shyamalan movies for example. The guy has literally made a living out of making movies with twist endings. But, those are the best ones. End up with one of the worst and you will be wondering why you wasted your time watching it.

Thankfully, Netflix has a long list of movies with great twist endings and we have picked 6 of the best ones from them. 

The Invitation (2015)

⌛ 1h 40min  ⭐6.6/10

This movie is brilliant in its ability to conjure two interesting plots into one. The first one terrifies you with a cult performing some dreadful ritual, while the second story is about a man who is driven into the point of a complete mental breakdown because of his past.

2. Devil (2010)

⌛ 1h 20m  ⭐6.2/10

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.

3. Vanilla Sky (2001)

⌛ 2h 17m  ⭐6.9/10

Telling the story of David Aames, a publishing magnate, this flick has Tom Cruise playing the lead role. Aames gets into a car crash and scars his face. The incident forces him into an existential crisis and raises questions about the existing reality of his life. However, all these questions are given a shocking answer with a remarkable plot twist at the end of the movie.

4. Primal Fear (1996)

⌛ 2h 10m  ⭐7.7/10

Edward Norton plays the role of a stuttering altar boy in this legal thriller. He is accused of murder. Suffering from multiple personality disorder, he seems to have no knowledge of the murder committed by his alter ego, Roy. Think you know what the twist is?! Then you are definitely in for a surprise.

5. Raw (2016)

⌛ 1h 39m  ⭐7/10

Raw has a straightforward plot about a French cannibal discovering her sexuality (and taste for human flesh). Apparently, that is as straight forward as it can get, as the movie forwards into a more mythological ending. Surely this one is not for the faint of heart.

6. The Village (2004)

⌛ 1h 39m  ⭐6.5/10

Written and directed by the master of plot twists, M. Night Shyamalan, the twist in The Village may sound a little dumb at first. However, you have to hand it to the director for making such an unrepentant big swing in the third act. Watch the movie just for that.

10 Awesome Movies That Will Keep You Entertained

However, we have just the right dose of flicks to make you not worry about boredom no more. From heart-warming romantic comedies to fast-paced thrillers to cult classics we have gathered some awesome movies that everyone should see at least once.

Go get your glass of wine and settle in for the evening.  Because here are our pick of awesome movies to watch when you’re bored.

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)

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.

Apparently, these movies have plenty of answers for that. So, let us examine the best ones from them. Here are 7 time-travel movies that you’ll love watching.

The Time Machine (1960)

There is no talking about time travel movies without mentioning the classic Time Machine. Based on the famous science fiction novel by HG Wells, this movie is about a Victorian Englishman who travels into the distant futute. There he discovers that human race is divided into two hostile species.

Somewhere in Time (1980)

9 Best Netflix Original Movies So Far

by Emily Keen

In the world of event cinema, finding interesting stories driven by passion and originality is a tough task. But if you have Netflix, you need not sweat it! Some of the most engaging dramas are waiting to be discovered right away. 

Here is a list of nine such wonderfully crafted stories:

  1.   Roma (2018)

Run Time: 135 min | IMDb: 7.8/10

This mellow piece of drama shot in pellucid black and white frames follows the life of two women. Sofia, a mother of four and Cleo the maid of their house are walking parallel roads disappointed by the spineless men who left them alone to deal with their plight. Alfonso Cuaron intelligently combines the ingredients of tragedy, comedy, and mystery to brew up a soulful tale of a dysfunctional household in Mexico. And to top that is the extraordinary performance of a tender and stoic Cleo, scaling up the drama to a sheer work of art.

 

  1.   Mudbound (2017)

Run Time: 134 min | IMDb: 7.4/10

Mudbound is a poetically maneuvered narrative of communal tragedy layered onto the preconceived notions of racism and patriarchy. Set in the aftermath of world war II, the film explores the situation of two families (one black and one white), only to reveal they are implicitly weighed down by common distress- societal norms. This is a deviously crafted melodrama that dares to bare the sublime agony of the browbeaten by the powerful.  And just unlike a mature piece of cinema, it aims at evoking response based on individual perceptions with subtle clues of information hidden in the beats.

 

  1.   Happy as Lazzaro (2018)

Run Time: 128 min | IMDb: 7.6/10

Based on real events in Italy, Happy as Lazzaro is a story of a naïve young man who lives among the sharecroppers on a farm. Another tale of a socially oppressed class of workers being bossed around by their landlords, that introduces you to a perplexing mindset of a boy who despite being exploited with intensive labor, sees his life as idyllic. An engaging buildup waiting to reveal the mysterious cause of the Lazzaro’s happiness, the film will have you puzzled but still wanting to keep wandering in the world created teller.

 

  1.   Beasts of No Nation (2015)

Run Time: 137 min | IMDb: 7.8/10

An uncompromising and emotionally powerful depiction of what war costs humanity! Beasts of No Nation is a poignant tale of a village boy strayed by the men who portray themselves as messiahs and manipulate young minds to commit ruthless crimes disguised as “heroism”. Gauging the depths of a soldier’s mind, the movie brings out the truth of the lives of men in uniforms who take pride in unleashing the beasts within.

 

  1.   Private Life (2018)

Run Time: 123 min | IMDb: 7.3/10

The “Private Life” is a comical venture into the lives of a middle-aged couple who cannot get pregnant owing to an awfully unfortunate status quo of their reproductive system. Truly painful a situation yet a rich premise for a humorous drama, the story explores the frustrations of an impotent couple. Their obsession with bearing a child takes a hard hit at their professional and personal lives until they have a guest who comes as a beacon of hope. A brilliant mix of observations and gags skillfully sprinkled onto the story of two ambitious people bearing the brunt of their choices.

 

  1.   The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

Run Time: 133 min | IMDb: 7.3/10

An anthology of political nature at large 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.

 

  1.   On Body and Soul (2017)

Run Time: 116 min | IMDb: 7.6/10

A bizarre yet unique plot that unfolds in the backdrop of a slaughterhouse, On Body and Soul is a metaphorical representation of the nature of human thoughts. The story unwinds as two people begin to fall in love with each other and live the experience not in the real world but through a common dream. Yes, therein lies the bizarre part of the story! It is a whimsical depiction of an ostensible world where humans find it okay to chop animals for trade but deep down a part of them, construes the act as horrible. 

 

  1.   The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

Run Time: 112 min | IMDb: 6.9/10

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!

 

  1.   The Little Prince (2016)

Run Time: 108 min | IMDb: 7.7/10

Based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 children’s classic, the little prince is an animated composition remixed with instruments of modernism. The story unfolds as a clandestine relationship between a child and her aviator neighbor who introduces the central character of the movie. The little prince from outer space strikes the face of the earth from outer space and falls in love with a high strung rose but ultimately loses his innocence as he grows to accept the ruthless norms of the world.

7 Most Iconic Star Wars Characters That You Often Forget

by Kaylen Summers

The Star Wars Universe is perhaps the best thing to come out of Hollywood over the decades.  George Lucas’ story of a young man, an evil Empire, and a galaxy far, far away has captured the imaginations of a generation who grew up on that original trilogy, and later the younger viewers with its prequels, sequels and other canonical spin-offs.

The Star Wars stories are vast and teeming with characters. With room for even more characters to fill, it is normal for anyone to miss out on some of their iconic characters. From the greatest Jedis and Jabba sidekicks to loyal ‘bots and extraterrestrial louts, there are many cool characters that we often forget.  However, we have taken it upon ourselves to freshen up your memories. Here is the list for the 13 most iconic Star Wars characters we often forget. May the force be with you, always!!

Lando Calrissian

starwars-lando

Don’t underestimate Lando by his silk shirt, the matching cape, and the easy smile. This smooth-talking smuggler changed from being a get-rich-quick schemer to a selfless leader in the fight against the Empire. The character portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. However, Donald Glover played the younger version of the character in the standalone Han Solo Star Wars movie.

C-3PO

c-3p0 star wars

Built by the heroic Jedi Anakin Skywalker, C-3PO is a droid programmed for etiquette and protocol. He is fluent in over seven million forms of communication and a constant companion to astromech R2-D2. Over the year, this metal worrywart has been involved in many great Star Wars battles and has become an inevitable part of the Star Wars Saga.

Obi-Wan KenobiObi-Wan-Kenobi

How the hell did he end up in this list, right?! Well, it seems like some people forget him a lot too. Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Knight who personifies the patience, wisdom, and discipline required to harness the Force. This legendary Jedi Master trained Anakin Skywalker, served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars, and guided Luke Skywalker as a mentor.

Darth Maul

darth-maul-star-wars

A man of few words, Darth Maul is a deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious. When it comes lightsabers, this guy literally broke the mould and introduced the double-bladed weapon into the Star Wars universe. Now you know where Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens got the inspiration for his cross-sword beam. But jokes apart, Darth is one evil dude you don’t want to mess around with. George Lucas has described the big bad of The Phantom Menace as “a figure from one of his darkest nightmares.”

R2-D2

r2d2

Appearing in nine of the ten Star Wars films to date, R2-D2 has been a major character of the franchise. The droid robot was a brave and trustful companion to many including C-3PO, Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and even Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Chewbacca

chewbacca-star-wars

Nicknamed “Chewie”, Chewbacca is a tall, hirsute biped and intelligent species from the planet Kashyyyk. Over the years we have seen him do everything from being an engineer, warrior, slave, smuggler to even a rebel hero. But, he is best known to Star Wars fans as a loyal friend and first mate of Han Solo. He also serves as co-pilot on Solo’s spaceship, the Millennium Falcon.

Boba Fett

He is the most feared bounty hunter in the Star Wars franchise. Wearing his iconic customized Mandalorian armor and deadly weaponry, Boba Fett first appeared in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), in which he was hired by Darth Vader to capture Han Solo.

3. The Prestige (2006)

Christopher Nolan never seizes to surprise us with his truly one of a kind storytelling skills. But, his The Prestige had more than just skillful movie making. The plot twist of the movie as mesmerizing as the prestige of a magic show. Robert Angier and Alfred Borden are rival magicians attempting to outdo one another in a quest for the perfect illusion.

7 Best Slasher Movies Of All Time

by Kaylen Summers

You can make fun of it all you want, but the truth is that everyone loves a good slasher movie. It has everything that a movie lover whats- dumb teenagers who always take the wrong decisions, a masked psychopath, lots of blood, violence, and nudity. Okay, maybe it doesn’t have all the things that a moviegoer wants. But still, these movies can really get you ‘hooked’. With that in mind, we like to share with you seven of the best teen slasher movies around.

7. Scream (1996)

Director: Wes Craven
Stars: Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Rose McGowan, Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Jamie Kennedy, Drew Barrymore, Henry Winkler

For many reasons, this slasher film is beloved to fans. The movie literally took the template of then-dead genre and made it into a cult-following blockbuster. The flick unleashed a masked killer onto a band of unsuspecting youngsters, and the best part is that they all know how slasher movies work. These teases made the movie more relatable and gave audiences a memorable movie experience- though we cannot say the same for the movies that came later in the Scream franchise.

6. Deep Red (1975)

Director: Dario Argento
Stars: David Hemmings, Daria Nicolodi, Macha Meril, Clara Calamai, Gabriele Lavia, Eros Pagni, Giuliana Calandra

Originally titled as Profondo Rosso, the flick can be considered as the pinnacle of Italian Giallo films, a sub-genre of the slasher films. The movie marvels in its technical elements, death scenes, and all-encompassing greatness. The plot follows a pianist who witnesses the death of a psychic through an apartment window and then teams up with a reporter to solve the crime.

5. Alice, Sweet Alice (1976)

Director: Alfred Sole
Stars: Linda Miller, Brooke Shields, Niles McMaster, Alphonso DeNoble, Gary Allen, Lillian Roth

Directed by Alfred Sole,  Alice, Sweet Alice is surely the creepiest movie in this list. Set in the 1960s, the film breaks many taboos including killing a 9-year-old child and then setting the girl’s 12-year-old sister Alice as the prime suspect. The movie is a prolonged psychological game of whether Alice is the one behind all this or not.

4. Peeping Tom (1960)

Director: Michael Powell
Stars: Carl Boehm, Moira Shearer, Anna Massey, Maxine Audley, Pamela Green, Brenda Bruce, Miles Malleson

The movie follows an aspiring filmmaker who murders young women, trying to capture their last moments on his camera. The violence, sexual content, and voyeuristic themes in the movie were too much for the audience of that time to handle. In fact, the film’s reviews were so harsh that the director Michael Powell didn’t direct another film. However, the flick developed its own cult following and critical appraisal decades later.

3. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Director: Wes Craven
Stars: Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, Johnny Depp, John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Amanda Wyss, Jsu Garcia

For many reasons, Freddy Krueger is the most iconic slasher movie character ever. Played by Robert Englund, the child molester turned knife-glove-wearing dreamland serial killer revived interest back to the genre with the introduction a key new element: the supernatural. Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street is truly one of the most successful slasher film franchises of all time.

2. Black Christmas (1974)

Director: Bob Clark
Stars: Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder, Keir Dullea, John Saxon, Marian Waldman, Andrea Martin, Art Hindle

The concept of a killer making threatening phone calls was not something original to Wes Craven’s Scream. This was just the actor paying homage to a much iconic slasher movie, Bob Clark’s Black Christmas. The story follows a group of sorority sisters who receive threatening phone calls during the Christmas season. They are eventually stalked and murdered by a deranged killer.

1. Halloween (1978)

Director: John Carpenter
Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasance, P.J. Soles, Nancy Kyes, Charles Cypher

Among all the movies in this list, Halloween will be the one with the least bloodshed. The movie revolves around a serial killer Michael Myers who stalks and kills teenage babysitters on Halloween night, fifteen years after he murdered his teenage sister. Though the movie had many sequels and reboots, none came even close to the original 1978 flick.
