Director: Steven Spielberg | Duration: 146 minutes | Gender: sci fi

Cast: Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O’Connor

A film that received largely mixed reviews upon its release, AI: Artificial Intelligence is one of the directors Steven Spielbergis the most underrated that deserves more praise for everything he manages to achieve. Based on the 1969 short story Supertoys last all summer long by Brian Aldisthe film centers on David (Haley Joel Osment), a robotic child raised by parents whose own son was placed in suspended animation after contracting a rare disease. After some initial hesitation, humans begin to take an interest in David. However, their relationship quickly becomes complicated and leaves us with the question of whether this artificial child will ever be able to be part of this family. The movie went through development hell after it was initially watched by Stanley Kubrick, who eventually transferred his management duties to Spielberg. When it was finally released after years of delay, it was rejected by many. However, the weather was kind to the film as it garnered new praise and appreciation. While the ending itself may still divide many, it’s also what makes this a work that’s a Spielberg textbook.

Director: Iain Softley | Duration: 105 minutes | Gender: Drama

Cast: Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Matthew Lillard

A crime thriller to end all crime thrillers, The Pirates is one of those movies that has endured despite early box office struggles and a really poor initial critical reception. Telling the story of a group of high school hackers who take down man, it has achieved cult status, and for good reason. That’s partly because the movie is just so much fun, but it also serves as a time capsule from a different era when the internet was still an unknown part of our lives. There have been scattered rumors over the years of a potential reboot with the director. Iain Softley even hinting that there was interest, though nothing will quite capture the magic of the original from all those years ago. He remains as clumsy and as pure in his portrayal of cyberspace as ever.

Director: Karyn Kusama | Duration: 102 minutes | Gender: Horror

Stars: Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody

You didn’t think we’d pass up the opportunity to praise the great film that is Jennifer’s body, have you? Misunderstood when it came out, Karyn KusamaThe biting horror-comedy has now become one of the most beloved cult classics and for good reason. Not only does he never see better Megan Fox absolutely devouring the role, in more ways than one, but it has more than carved out its place as being one of the most enduring revenge movies in recent memory. If you haven’t seen it, forget any misconceptions you have about the film’s mismarketing and instead open yourself up to whatever it manages to achieve. If you’re lucky enough to know as little as possible, you’re in for a diabolical treat that makes the most of its parable of self-aware horror.

Director: Tony Scott | Duration: 146 minutes | Gender: Drama

Cast: Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken, Dakota Fanning

An adaptation of the late blockbuster author who was Tony Scott, man on fire was another film that was widely rejected when it was released in 2004 although it still had something to offer after all these years. One of the main reasons for this is that he reunited Scott with Denzel Washington who you can never go wrong with. The veteran actor plays John W. Creasy, a former CIA agent facing guilt for his past actions who’s hired to be a bodyguard for a wealthy family in Mexico. He forms a bond with the daughter of the Lupita family (dakota johnson), and when she is kidnapped, he must find a way to get her back. What follows is gruesome but undeniably engaging work that sees both Washington and Scott firing on all cylinders. The combination of quick editing and a charismatic yet overwhelming central performance makes for one that still stands as a solid revisit.

Director: Martin Scorsese | Duration: 138 minutes | Gender: Thriller

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, Mark Ruffalo

Directed by a certain director by the name of Martin Scorsese, shutter island is a psychological thriller where the terror comes as much from the inner world as from the outer world. It’s important to keep plot details a secret from those who haven’t already seen it, as it’s crucial to enter with as little information as possible. The bases are that he follows U.S. Marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Marc Ruffalo) as they travel to an isolated hospital for those deemed “criminally insane” to track down a murderer who appears to have escaped. Upon arriving, there seems to be a lot of strange happenings that quickly overwhelm you and reveal as much about the place as the strangers who visit it. It remains a dynamic and devastating work that still leaves a hole in your stomach as you begin to understand the disturbing truth about what is happening in the story.

Director: André Bujalski | Duration: 93 minutes | Gender: Drama

Cast: Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson, Shayna McHayle

If there’s one movie on this list that’s both least-seen and least-appreciated, it’s support the girls. It has a spectacular Regina Hall as Lisa, the caring general manager of a sports bar who is essentially a fictionalized version of Hooters. Mostly taking place over a single day, we follow her as she tries to support her employees while dealing with various mounting complications. It’s one of those character studies that feels so authentic and authentic that it could be a documentary about the modern-day worker if you didn’t know anything different. Each moment of humor then intertwines with a more complicated sense of sadness as we watch Lisa and her team work their way through another day at work. The result is a compassionate film with one of the most cathartic endings one could hope for.

Director: Robert Egger | Duration: 137 minutes | Gender: action drama

Cast: Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang

A film that mixes the mystical with the macabre, The man from the north sees Robert Egger working on a canvas larger than anything he has done before while demonstrating his commitment to the precise details of craftsmanship. It follows the battle-hardened Viking Amleth (Alexander Skarsgard) as he tries to get revenge on the man who murdered his father in the 10th century AD. Dark and macabre while fascinating to watch, it’s a work that plants its feet firmly in the times while capturing the eternity of the supernatural. While there are some awesome action sequences, from an early one-hit sequence to a later sequence in the shadow of a fiery volcano, it’s also an experience that’s also defined by the small moments. A particular scene where Ethan Hawke as Amleth’s father, King Aurvandil War-Raven, delivers a monologue so brimming with gravity that it proves to be the most riveting and memorable moment in the entire action epic. Whether you’ve seen it before or haven’t had the pleasure of it yet, it’s a gripping film that shows Eggers still remain uncompromising.
