Director: Zack Snyder
Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Dominic West
Genre: Action, History
Released: 2006

Director Zack Snyder’s visually strong historical fantasy 300 stars a bearded and muscle-bound Gerard Butler as Leonidas, the King of Sparta who leads an army of 300 Spartans against an invading force 300,000 strong.

A spectacle of style and violence led by an intense Butler in prime butt-kicking mode, the plot of 300 may be simple yet its action scenes are as bloodshed thrilling as they come, Snyder delivering a dazzling display of colour and bone crunching battle scenes that ranks amongst the best violent comic book movies.   

Almost Famous

Image Credit: DreamWorks Pictures

Director: Cameron Crowe
Starring: Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, Kate Hudson
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Released: 2000

Set in the early 1970s, Almost Famous follows a high-schooler who is given the chance to accompany an up-and-coming rock band on their concert tour so he can write a story about the band for Rolling Stone magazine. Considered one of the best coming-of-age films ever made, Almost Famous is a must-watch.

Plus, all cast members deliver phenomenal performances and the plot is excellent.

American Sniper

Director: Clint Eastwood
Starring: Bradley Copper, Sienna Miller
Genre: Biography, War
Released: 2014

American Sniper tells the true story of late Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), a Navy Seal who had the distinction of being the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with 160 confirmed kills to his name.

Led by an absorbing performance by Cooper, American Sniper is a powerful story that details the heavy personal ramifications that comes with being a legend of war. Director Clint Eastwood’s straight shooting, masculine direction captures the totality of a soldier’s experience without any filter, pretence, or agenda.  

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Image Credit: New Line Cinema

Director: Jay Roach
Starring: Mike Myers, Elizabeth Hurley
Genre: Comedy
Released: 1997

If you’re in the mood to laugh, there’s nothing better than a quality parody film. And not only is Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery the ultimate parody film, I’d argue it’s even better than the film it’s parodying, James Bond.

Plus, Mike Myers as both Austin and Dr Evil is just hilarious in this visually stunning and juvenile but lighthearted film.

The Big Lebowski

Image Credit: Gramercy Pictures/PolyGram Filmed Entertainment

Director: Joel and Ethan Coen
Starring: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore
Genre: Comedy, Mystery
Released: 1998

When stoner Jeff ‘The Dude’ Lebowski’s rug is ruined by debt collectors who have mistaken him for a millionaire of the same name, The Dude sets out with his bowling buddies to find his namesake. Chaos ensues when The Dude becomes tangled in LA’s underworld of crime.

The Big Lebowski is hilarious and well-written, topped off with fantastic performances; hence why it became a cult classic.

Director: Spike Lee
Starring: John David Washington, Adam Driver
Genre: Crime, Drama
Released: 2018

BlacKkKlansman follows an African American police officer, Ron, who successfully infiltrates the local Ku Klux Klan branch and teams up with his Jewish colleague, Flip, to take them down through an impressive undercover operation. The film is set in the early 70s and is actually based on real events.

Complete with fantastic writing, directing and acting, BlacKkKlansman manages to convey a serious message in a respectful yet enjoyable way.

Blade Runner 2049

Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

Director: Denis Villenueve
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto
Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller
Released: 2017

Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to the 1982 movie, which also starred Ford. Surprisingly, for a sequel, Blade Runner 2049 is just as good, if not better than its predecessor, and even holds up well as a stand-alone film.

Set 30 years after the first film, Ryan Gosling plays a Blade Runner (police officers who track and eliminate fugitive ‘replicants’ – robots that look just like humans) named K who discovers a long-kept secret that leads him to track down missing Blade Runner Rick Deckard.

Whether you’re a fan of the cult classic Blade Runner or just love neo-noir sci-fi movies, you’ll highly enjoy Blade Runner 2049.

The Blues Brothers

Image Credit: Universal Pictures

Director: John Landis
Starring: Dan Akroyd, John Belushi
Genre: Comedy, Music
Released: 1980

The Blues Brothers follows the adventures of Ellwood (Dan Aykroyd) and Jake (John Belushi), brothers and petty criminals from the rough streets of Chicago. When Jake completes his prison term for armed robbery, he and Ellwood learn that the orphanage they were raised in will be demolished unless an exorbitant tax bill is paid. They pair embark on a “mission from God” when the Almighty himself gives them his divine blessing and a clear instruction: get the band back together.

Director John Landis blends the films’ diverse elements – musical, comedy, action, adventure – to create a unique and non-stop entertaining multi-genre showcase. Both Aykroyd and Belushi are fantastic, taking these characters they created for legendary sketch TV show Saturday Night Live, and transition them into iconic movie characters.

The Dark Knight

Image Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures

Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal
Genre: Action, Crime
Released: 2008

The second instalment of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight is considered one of the best superhero films of all time. Brilliant as a stand-alone film, as almost everyone knows Batman’s origin story, told in Nolan’s Batman Begins, the plot of The Dark Knight is extremely compelling and the acting, especially Ledger as The Joker, is superb.

Whether you’re a fan or not of superhero films, you have to watch The Dark Knight as it’s a grounded comic book adaptation that’s an outstanding piece of cinema.


Image Credit: Warner Bros.

Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh
Genre: Action, War
Released: 2022

Director Christopher Nolan’s 10th feature film is set during the Dunkirk evacuations of World War II, where for over a week almost 400,000 British and allied troops awaited evacuation on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, as the German Air Force struck from above.

An immersive and enthralling display of filmmaking skill and lump in throat storytelling, Dunkirk features Nolan at his leanest and most intense, resulting in a war movie epic in size and look that utilises stellar visual and sound effects to deliver an experience of high calibre spectacle. A fantastic cast featuring Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and Kenneth Branagh deliver terrific performances.

A Few Good Men

Genre: Comedy, Romance
Released: 20208

When Sarah Marshall, a television star, dumps her boyfriend of five years, Peter; he’s devastated. Trying to heal and process the breakup, Peter decides to go on vacation to Hawaii, only to discover Sarah is also on holiday at the same resort with her new rockstar boyfriend.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall has some genuinely funny moments and likeable, relatable characters; if you’re after a good laugh, this is the film for you.

Game Night

Director: John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein
Starring: Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Jesse Plemons
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Released: 2018

A group of friends who regularly have ‘games nights’ together decide to shake things up by playing a game that involves solving a live-action role-played kidnapping. However, they soon realise that the kidnapping is not a part of a game; it was real and their lost friend is now in real danger.

Plemons truly steals the show acting-wise in Game Night but Bateman and McAdams also have their moments. The film is genuinely funny and perfect for when you’re in the mood for something lighter.

The Godfather

Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Starring: Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton
Genre: Crime, Drama
Released: 1972

Considered one of the best films of all time, The Godfather follows the Italian-American crime family of Don Vito Corleone. The don’s youngest son, Michael is reluctant to join the ‘family business’ but soon becomes a ruthless mafia boss; putting strain on his relationship with his wife.

The Godfather redefined mob movies and is truly groundbreaking. The Godfather is a film you have to watch before you die, and if you’ve seen it already… watch it again; you know how good it is.

Director: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci
Genre: Biography, Crime
Released: 1990

Based on the book by Nicholas Pileggi, Goodfellas is the story of work-a-day gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) and his mob friends (Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci) as they rise up the mafia hierarchy through armed robbery, drug dealing, and murder.

Martin Scorsese’s gangster masterpiece, Goodfellasfeatures the lauded filmmaker at the peak of his craft, displaying a visual prowess rarely seen, and an authenticity in the portrayal of his subjects and their environment that is nothing short of authentic. An excellent cast all deliver terrific performances, especially Pesci whose portrayal of a fiery tempered, trigger-happy gangster one that entertains and frightens with equal measure.

Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone

Director: Chris Columbus
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Released: 2001

Feeling nostalgic? Go back and relive your youth with Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone. Binge actually has all eight Harry Potter films, so you can enjoy a wizardly movie marathon. Never seen Harry Potter? You’re seriously missing out; the series follows a young boy who must face off against a powerful yet evil wizard.

Despite – technically – being a kid’s movie, the plot and acting is really good, and is well worth a watch (or re-watch).


Image Credit: 20th Century Fox

Director: Russell Mulcahy
Starring: Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Tom Clancy
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Released: 1986

“There can only be one!” was the tagline for Highlander, the 1986 action fantasy film that starred Belgium actor Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, an immortal swordsman from Scotland who is pitted in an eternal war against Tom Clancy’s evil slayer, The Kurgen. The legendary Sean Connery also stars in a memorable performance as MacLeod’s mentor, Ramirez.

Directed by Australian filmmaker Russell Mulcahy and featuring a rocking soundtrack by Queen, Highlander is a visually stunning work that features terrific action scenes and terrific performances by an deliciously over-the-top Clancy and an effortlessly charismatic Connery, who somehow convinces through his Scottish accent that he is a Spanish swordsman. While several sequels and spin-offs followed, it is the 1986 original that will always stand the test of time.


Image Credit: Warner Bros.

Director: Clint Eastwood
Starring: Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman
Genre: Drama, Sport
Released: 2009

Invictus tells the true story of how in his first term as President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela joined forces with Francois Pienaar, South Africa’s rugby team captain, to unite their country in the wake of Apartheid. Both Freeman and Damon (rightfully) earned Oscar nominations for their performances in this film.

History buffs and sports fans will especially get a kick out of Invictus, but so will others as overall, it’s an inspiring and enjoyable film.

Jurassic World

Image Credit: Universal Pictures

Director: Colin Trevorrow
Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard

But when the most vicious dinosaur escapes, Owen, a former military man and expert played by Pratt, must use his skills to save the tourists from death.

Hugely nostalgic and with great visual effects, if you’re a fan of the original Jurassic Park films or just like Pratt as an actor, you’ll enjoy Jurrasic World.


Image Credit: Lionsgate

Director: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Nicolas Cage
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Released: 2010

Kick-Ass follows high school student, Dave Lizewski who’s obsessed with comic books, as he decides to become a superhero despite having no superpowers, no combat training, or any real reason to do so. Dave quickly discovers, though, that not only have others already become real-life superheroes but they do it much better than him. This film is hilarious and explores what would happen if those of us who have daydreamed about becoming comic book heroes actually decided to pursue it.

Kick-Ass is a fresh, original take on the almost overdone comic book film genre, that will genuinely put a smile on your face.

Mad Max Fury Road

Director: George Miller
Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron
Genre: Action, Thriller
Released: 2015

Set amongst a barren post-apocalyptic desert, Mad Max: Fury Road opens with Tom Hardy’s grizzly loner Max pursued by a group of V8 worshipping speed demons who serve tyrannical cult leader Immortan Joe (Hugh Keyes-Byrne). Captured and tortured, Max gets his chance for revenge against his captors with the help of fearless warrior Furiosa (Charlize Theron.)

Directed by George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road is an innovative and madcap action thriller that features crazy vehicular carnage action breathtaking in imagery and hefty in presence, with every gear crunched, engine roared, and car-frame smashed felt in the pit of your stomach and seared into your brain.

No Country for Old Men

Image Credit: Miramax

Director: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
Starring: Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Released: 2007

Directed by the Coen Brothers, No Country for Old Men stars Josh Brolin as an everyday man on the run after he finds a satchel containing two million dollars. After him is a ruthless hitman (Javier Bardem) who plans to get his man and the money no matter who is in his way. Investigating their case is an aging Texas sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) who ponders the descent of the world into chaos and violence.

Based on the acclaimed 2005 novel by Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men is enriched with the Coen’s unmistakable style and wit, the chase elements in particular a thrilling watch carried out with breakneck tension. Brolin and Lee Jones are fantastic, yet it is Javier Bardem who steals the film as a villain devoid of emotion, compromise, and remorse.

Pulp Fiction

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Released: 1994

Four stories cleverly intertwine in this black comedy co-written and directed by Tarantino. Witty, violent, and graphic, the complex story of Pulp Fiction is executed perfectly, thanks to an excellent screenplay and phenomenal acting from all cast members.

Director: David F. Sandberg
Starring: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Djimon Hounsou
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Released: 2019

Fourteen-year-old Billy Batson is no ordinary teen. By shouting the word ‘Shazam’ he’s able to transform into an adult superhero with awesome powers. However, even when transformed, Billy has the mind of a boy and has to quickly master his new powers otherwise they’ll be stolen by the evil Dr Thaddeus Sivana.

It’s a tad of a wacky premise but it works and Zachary Levi (as always) is a delight. If you’re after an extremely lighthearted and funny superhero film, Shazam! is for you.

Genre: Action, Comedy

Nicolas Cage plays Nick Cage in this action comedy in which the down and out actor agrees to a million dollar offer by a billionaire playboy and number one fan (Pedro Pascal) to attend his birthday bash. When Cage is asked by the CIA to spy on his new friend, the actor must use all his skill to find the truth.

Cage delivers one of his best comedic turns in a fictional portrayal of himself that pokes fun at the Nic Cage mythos. Pascal matches Cage’s zany energy with an entertaining performance in his own right, the pair delivering as one of the better buddy-comedy pairings seen in some time.
