Into the Wild

Year: 2007

IMDB: 8.1

WATCH ON PARAMOUNT PLUS

There are far too few movies where the scenic locations sync perfectly with Eddie Vedder's style of music. Into the Wild is the story of Christopher McCandless, who is privileged by all means – wealthy parents, a college degree from Emory University, an athlete to look out for and popularity that people would kill for. But things go for a turn when he suddenly decides to drop off from his path toward a successful career, gives away all his money to charitable organizations, and embarks on a mission to experience the Alaskan wilderness in its full glory. We cannot describe how good this movie is, but it must be watched by everyone at least once in their lives.

Coaxed to take part in the “Derelicte” fashion show by Jacobin Mugatu (Will Ferrell), to regain his confidence, Zoolander doesn’t catch on to the ulterior motive of the show before it is too late – to kill the Malaysian prime minister.

Year: 2009

IMDB: 7.7

WATCH ON PARAMOUNT PLUS

There are many reasons to call off (500) Days of Summer as hopelessly romantic, but there’s one reason to turn down that criticism – the movie is a beautiful journey of self-discovery, something we usually do only after we discover a need to better understand ourselves. Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is suddenly dumped by his girlfriend of 500 days, Summer. Though heartbroken, Tom decides to look back at the 500 days of their time together and understand why things didn’t work out. In doing this, he comes to terms with his true self and passions which help him grow more as a person. Highly unpredictable, this movie is a truly satisfying experience.

But when news about an ex-girlfriend’s death reaches Dante, he attends her memorial service and goes down a rabbit hole analyzing his current life and relationships. There’s a certain charm about Dante, this movie shows that sometimes no narrative can be the most entertaining one.

Saving Private Ryan

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Year: 1986

IMDB: 7.8

WATCH ON PARAMOUNT PLUS

By taking a page out of the teen comedy handbook, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a witty movie, even a cure to an otherwise cumbersome day. Played by Matthew Broderick, Ferris Bueller has a unique talent his other classmates just don’t seem to have – cutting classes without getting into trouble. He takes it to the next level when he calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari and takes it for a spin through the streets of Chicago. But on his tail is high school principal Rooney, who is determined to stop this teen from getting away with it.

The Ring

Year: 2002

IMDB: 7.1

WATCH ON PARAMOUNT PLUS

Determined to find out if this is true, she watches the video and realizes, she has just seven days to discover the link between the mysterious deaths and the videotape before it is too late.
