For the past 2 weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of watching multiple films in the cinema. That made me think of making a list of movies that I would recommend others to watch. I’m going to limit my list to 5 films.
But before I list them down here are some things about my list:
1. These are not necessarily the most critically-acclaimed films (or some might not even have a positive rating).
2. There are not necessarily classics or worthy to be studied in formal film courses.
3. The reason why I chose them because I personally enjoyed them.
Those things being said, let’s start!
Genre: Action, Historical Fantasy
Imdb Rating: 7.8; Metascore: 51/100
Notable Actors: Gerard Butler
It’s pretty obvious why I enjoyed this movie. The action was epic. Plus, the sword-and-sandal sub-genre is one of my favorites to watch. The film is filled with exciting, awesome action sequences. And the lines are really memorable (Madness? This is SPAAAAAAARTA).
Genre: Romance, Sci-Fi
Imdb Rating: 6.9; Metascore: 45/100
Notable Actors: Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz
Okay, this one will have mixed reactions. This is the kind of movie (in my opinion) that you will either really like or hate. The film is, for the most part, a love story with a bit of mystery. This is personally one of my favorite movies.
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Imdb Rating: 7.2; Metascore: 59/10
Notable Actors: Ryan Reynolds, Rachel Weisz, Abigail Breslin, and Elizabeth Banks
If you feel like relaxing and want to watch a light but fun movie, I would definitely recommend this one. It’s a light, feel-good movie. I’ve watched this a lot of times and it’s still fun to watch. After a tiring, stressful day Definitely, Maybe is one of the go-to movies in my list.
Genre: Thriller, Drama, Mystery
Imdb Rating: 7.5; Metascore: 74/100
Notable Actors: Belen Rueda
If you don’t mind reading subtitles, this Spanish thriller can be a fun film to watch. I suggest watching this with your family or friends. If you love a suspense and thrillers, try watching this one.
Imdb Rating: 6.2/10; Metascore: N/A
Notable Actors: John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo
