Rocky Saga

Director: John G. Avildsen
Starring: Sylvester Stallone
Genre: Drama, Sport
Released: 1976
IMDB Rating: 8.1


This classic film, written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, revolves around Rocky Balboa; the very definition of the underdog boxer fighting out of Philadelphia. Rocky gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fight the heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed, and trains like his life depends on it… literally.

One of the great cinematic triumphs, the Rocky franchise went on for four more films, as well as remade for modern audiences starring Michael B. Jordan as Apollo’s son.

Cue the music.

Director: James Cameron
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslett
Genre: Drama, Romance
Released: 1997
IMDB Rating: 7.9

101-year-old Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslett) tells the story of her life aboard the Titanic, 84 years later. A young Rose boards the ship with her mother and fiancé, while Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) wins third-class tickets aboard the unsinkable ship.

Titanic is the 1997 epic romance and disaster film directed by James Cameron, told from the perspective of one of the few survivors, of the Titanic’s departure through to its death—on its first and last voyage—on April 15, 1912.

Draw me like one of your French girls.

Star Trek

Director: J.J. Abrams
Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Bruce Greenwood, Eric Bana, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldaña
Genre: Sci-Fi
Released: 2009
IMDB Rating: 7.9

From J.J. Abrams, science fiction’s favourite filmmaker, comes the 2009 remake of a classic franchise.

It’s always tricky to navigate a reboot, especially when you’re bringing an iconic and beloved movie franchise to a modern audience, whilst simultaneously bringing the loyal fandom with you.

Supported by an all-star cast including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy, Abrams’ remake does just that, exploring the early years of the original Star Trek characters, such as James T. Kirk and Spock, before they became the familiar crew of the starship USS Enterprise.

Grab the popcorn and boldly go where no man has gone before.

Director: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Genre: Crime, Action
Released: 2010
IMDB Rating: 7.6

Under the not-so-subtle alias of Kick-Ass, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) goes from being an ordinary high school kid, and comic book enthusiast, whose biggest problem was trying to get with girls, to becoming a real-life superhero, despite not having any superpowers.

Together with the lethal Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage), Kick-Ass takes on the city’s criminal underworld and its many shady characters.

Kick-Ass was a huge hit when it was first released, offering a seemingly fresher take on the tired superhero genre. Its unconventional lens, dark humour, graphic violence and top-tier soundtrack gave this movie a rare cult following within its audience.

Director: John Hillcoat
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, Jessica Chastain
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Released: 2012
IMDB Rating: 7.2

Based on Matt Bondurant’s historical novel The Wettest County in the World, John Hillcoat’s Lawless follows the Bondurant brothers, Forrest (Tom Hardy), Howard (Jason Clarke), and Jack (Shia LaBeouf), as they run an illegal – albeit successful – moonshining operation in rural Franklin County, Virginia, during the Prohibition era of the 1930s.

Starring Hollywood heavy-hitters Hardy, LaBeouf and Gary Oldman, Lawless is the brutal true story about the clashes between tradition and modernity, exploring the lengths that people will go to protect their livelihood and family.
