Considered one of the best films of all time, The Godfather is a must-watch. The film follows Don Vito Corleone, the head of a powerful Italian-American crime family, as well as the don’s youngest son, Michael – who struggles to maintain a healthy relationship with his wife after reluctantly joining the Mafia.

Many call The Godfather ‘a masterpiece’ and ‘groundbreaking’; extremely apt descriptions.

Everyone is currently talking about how good Top Gun: Maverick is – and rightfully so; the sequel is awesome. But the original Top Gun film is iconic. A young Cruise plays Maverick, a daring pilot who is sent to Top Gun, an elite fighter weapons school.

Action-packed and with some seriously stunning aerial footage, the OG Top Gun is always worth watching.

Earth suddenly becomes the setting for an ancient struggle between two Cybertron races – the ‘good’ Autobots and the ‘evil’ Decepticons. And the only person who can save the world from total destruction is a teenage boy.

The premise may sound a tad moronic but Transformers is surprisingly good; the visual effects are seriously impressive and the film is action-packed and rather humorous at times.
