I don’t know how any of you survive without these movies Edenredbutchertechcrunch. Whether you’re a complete newbie or an avid viewer, these flicks will have you rooting for the right guy or girl at the right time. From action-packed thrillers to tear jerking dramas, here are 10 of my favorite movies to stream this weekend. Go out and see them – plenty of us will find some new meaning to watching war stories again!
The Adventures of Tintin
The Adventures of Tintin is a macabre, off-the-cuff novel about two orphaned boys and their adventure into the world of fancy society rooms. It’s based on the same characters as the Disney Channel TV show, so you might recognize some familiar faces from that as well. However, this is a highly recommended George Lucas/Ralph McQuarrie/D. B. Weasleys novel – read it if you love macabre and off-the-cuff reading, or if you just have a thing for twine and elephants.
The Coen Brothers’ The Master and Commander
In this classic film, a group of sixteenth-century English knights travel through time and space to save their country from an inclement future. But the men in this cast of characters are anything but ordinary. They’re Serfs, Third Reich sympathizers, and outlaws, with a touch of Edward the Confessor thrown in. Along for the ride are an assortment of interesting supporting characters, including a band of pirates led by a sea captain who’s in love with a swarthy character named Prince Rono.
In this powerful movie, Oscar-winning producer Walt Disney hires a private army to clean up his factory town of workers. But the list of names on the Schindler’s List are a little more than meets the eye – it’s a list of Jews, including one of Schindler’s own employees, who were chosen for inclusion because of their ethnicity. It’s a powerful film with powerful messages about what happens when people start to distance themselves from the Jewish faith, or at least as far as they can.
Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
Star Wars is known for having lots of special effects and pretty much nothing else – or, at least, until The Phantom Menace comes along. In this prequel to the main saga, Han Solo and Chewbacca find themselves stranded on a planet with a species of dangerous superjedi known as the Borgia. While there’s almost no special effects here, there’s a lot of charm and real emotion right from the off as the two men fall in love. The movie also stars Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, who are only our favorite imaginary characters this weekend.
Will Smith’s Glory Days
Will Smith makes his directorial debut with this biopic about the artistic and musical life of Martin Luther, who is best known for his writings on the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. Smith plays a young man from Cleveland who moves to Nashville to learn how to play the guitar and become a successful artist. Then he moves to New York to open up a recording studio and goes on to produce some of the biggest hits of all time. But his songwriting life is much more accessible than that of his idol, which means we get a really interesting listen here about how a poor kid from the South can become one of the most successful songwriter/arrangers in history.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Catching Fire tells the story of the entries in the Hunger Games, a series of games in which all the participating countries will have to eat each other alive in an attempt to eek out as much of the food and fiber as possible. The Hunger Games are famous for the panels of fire eating one another alive, but this film tells a different kind of story – it’s about the struggle for survival among the humans and the animals who live in the area. It’s a powerful movie both visually and thematically, and we get a really inspiring story about the power of community.
Ready Player One
Ready Player One is a book that has been mentioned numerous times, and while there is no real plot to go around here, each article or two have been enough to put us in mind of what we’re normally treated to by way of Netflix. Ready Player One is another novel by Ernest Cline and starsgdave2020 as a college professor who wakes up one day in a radically altered state of mind, with a vision of a virtual reality called ” Ready.”
This is a very personal movie for every parent, and for that reason alone, it’s worth seeing for anyone who wants to learn more about their child. The Orphanage was a Belgian children’s home for destitute boys, and it has unfortunately been around for more than twenty years – it contains some of the most disturbing images and stories ever told. Every family has their own orphanage, and for the inhabitants of this one, the place is their only home.
## Blade Runner 2049
This is another movie that is well-reputed, but the review on Rotten Tomatoes is relatively close to the mark. Like Ready Player One, Blade Runner twenty-nine is also a novel, and while the plot is mostly irrelevant, the visuals, score, and music are all quite memorable. It’s also one of the best sci-fi flicks ever made, and it probably won’t be the last time we see this film in theaters.
This is a movie you probably won’t see on a Friday evening, but it’s definitely worth a watch if you’re a parent or a grandparent who has lost a child. It follows two foster parents, Michael and Paul, as they try to re-ignite their lost child’s interest in them. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a Disney Channel movie as strong as this, and it also happens to be one of the few movies we’ll see again and again and again.
Finding Nemo – The Lowdown
Finding Nemo is a children’s book by award-winning artist Michael Samuels about a
