The Call Up

The Call Up

The Call Up is a 2016 British science-fiction movie written and directed by one Charles Barker. It goes like this - eight top-ranked video gamers are invited to test a beta version of a virtual reality first-person shooter game. It all seems like fun and games at first, but soon enough, the players discover that the equipment they use includes lethal feedback, and now their survival depends solely on winning the game. Some critics scolded The Call Up for its cliche characters, while others praised its visual style, atmosphere, and cool action sequences highly. But, if you’re into action and sci-fi movies, give this one a shot; it’s free to watch, after all!

The Legend Of The Red Dragon

The Legend Of The Red Dragon


The Legend Of The Red Dragon (also known as The New Legend Of Shaolin) is a 1994 Hong Kong martial arts movie produced by and starring Jet Li. The film follows the exploits of Hung Hei-kwun, a martial artist who lived in 18th century China, as a rebel against the Qing government rule. And, undoubtedly, there are plenty of pretty cool fight scenes in this movie, twisted government conspiracies, and rebellion-driven sabotage. A real treat for Jet Li and martial arts movie fans!

Men At Work

Men At Work


Men At Work is a 1990 American comedy/thriller movie written and directed by Emilio Estevez, who also stars in the movie along with Charlie Sheen. So, this duo plays a couple of garbage collectors in the movie with a dream to own a surf shop. Since they are known to be troublemakers, soon there are corpses, a damsel in distress, a pizza guy hostage, and a pool of toxic water. In short, the whole shebang. And, as a movie with a tiny production budget, it did pretty well in the box office, although the critics weren’t too convinced that it was a movie worthy of such fame. I guess you’ll just have to see it and judge for yourself. If anything else, it will give you a nice reminiscence on the ‘90s trends, fashions, and way of life.

Living On One Dollar

Living On One Dollar


Living On One Dollar is a 2013 documentary movie exploring the way of living with just one dollar daily allowance. Four young friends (who are also the creators of this documentary) live in such a way for two months in rural Guatemala, battling hunger, parasites and coming to a realization that there indeed aren’t any easy answers to solving extreme poverty. Living On One Dollar might be the most awarded movie on our list, with a Sonoma International Film Festival win under its belt and numerous praises from various famous people devoted to humanitarian causes. It isn’t a light watch but a real eye-opener instead.

Ghost In The Shell 2.0

Ghost In The Shell 2.0


Ghost In The Shell 2.0 is not exactly a new movie but rather a modernized re-release of the 1995 original. This version combines original footage from the 1995 version with updated animations, created by using the newest at the time animation technologies. Also, this 2008 re-release includes a new opening scene, upgraded holographic displays, and omits some brief scenes. Even the original soundtrack got a revamp, being rearranged and re-recorded for the occasion. So, basically, it’s Ghost In The Shell entering the 21st century, and the more of this iconic anime movie, the better!

The film, co-produced by BBC, the Science Channel, and the Open University, first aired on the BBC2 channel, later on finding its way onto YouTube.

Police Story: Lockdown

Police Story: Lockdown (also known as Police Story 2013) is a 2013 Chinese-Hong Kong action crime thriller film starring Jackie Chan. And it isn’t a solitary movie in the Police Story series - it’s actually the sixth installment and a way darker one than its comedic predecessors. And, although a critical flop, Police Story: Lockdown is still a highly entertaining movie full of thrilling action sequences and awesome stunts by Jackie Chan.

But hey, who doesn’t love a soapy, feel-good movie where the plot is very familiar, restraining itself from any huge surprises? If so, check out A Little Bit Of Heaven free on YouTube for a cozy, cheesy evening.

Here Matthew Broderick is David, a teenage hacker who unintentionally breaches the security of a United States military supercomputer. This thingamajig is programmed to simulate, predict, and execute nuclear war against the Soviet Union. WarGames got its praises for being one of the most inventive and suspenseful Cold War movies of the decade, garnering a wide following of the younger audiences. Mainly because it is a highly entertaining story, and all the adults in the movie are basically boobs.

Borrowed Hearts

Borrowed Hearts


Borrowed Hearts (also known as Borrowed Hearts: A Holiday Romance) is a 1997 American-Canadian television Christmas drama movie starring Roma Downey and Eric McCormack. The plot itself is somewhat similar to that of Dickens’ Christmas Carol - a cynical bachelor finds his heart and love in it through various show-and-tell life lessons. And while the movie itself is on the shallower side, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s a familiar story shown through great acting, engaging script, and some very decent humor.

Meatballs

Meatballs

Meatballs is a 1979 Canadian comedy film by Ivan Reitman (who later gave us the gift of Ghostbusters) featuring Bill Murray’s first movie appearance in a starring role. The movie’s summer camp setting, an underdog’s story, romance, and a healthy rivalry between the wealthy and the not-so, supplied this movie with very entertaining plot lines, and Murray’s unabashedly awesome performance elevated it all even more. Also, this might be the only movie where you see Murray portraying a genuinely sweet guy and that in itself is a feat we wouldn’t miss.

Hackers

Hackers

Hackers is a 1995 American crime movie starring Angelina Jolie. The movie centers around a group of high school hackers that are involved in a conspiracy considering a massive corporate extortion case. It was an interesting premise for the time as in the mid-90s, the internet was still largely unfamiliar to the general public; thus, Hackers tried to provide a sort of a glimpse into the future. It was also one of the first movies to show a mesh of hacker and cyberpunk subcultures to a wide audience. And, although the movie was ultimately a box office flop, it later gained the status of a cult classic.

The movie is based on a short story by Farley Mowat called Walk Well, My Brother and follows the story of a Canadian bush pilot and a young Inuk woman. Following an aircraft crash, the pilot is stranded in the Canadian Northwest Territories, and his encounter with the said woman encourages the two to brave the harsh conditions in an attempt to survive. The Snow Walker is a genuinely intriguing movie, elevated by Pepper’s performance and the natural talents of Annabella, who had no previous acting experience.

17 Miracles

17 Miracles

17 Miracles is a 2011 adventure movie directed by T. C. Christensen, who is known for his films related to the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Thus, 17 Miracles is also a religious-themed movie following the story of Mormon pioneers on their late autumn and, subsequently, winter journey to Salt Lake City in 1856. It focuses on the miracles experienced by the group’s members throughout their journey, and it is all based on a true story. The movie itself is made out of a series of vignettes with recurring characters; some might like this style while others might find it wearying. However, even if you are not really into religious stories or vignettes, you’ll nevertheless be awed by 17 Miracles’ striking cinematography.
