Whiplash (2014)

See what’s next.

Stephen King and Brian De Palma might dispute its listing as a horror movie, but Carrie certainly draws out the horrors of growing up. From the prom prank to that final shock, it still lives up to its classic status.

Vibrant and visionary, the film was a hit at Cannes and features an award-winning soundtrack by Oneohtrix Point Never. Brutally and brilliantly skewering the culture of the time while also proving horrifyingly prescient, Network set a high watermark for the s new wave of American cinema. Subversive fun, with a killer soundtrack. Are supernatural forces really behind their unravelling misfortune?

One of the most outright frightening folklore horrors of recent memory. Fox is Marty McFly, the skate-kid who, for reasons unexplained possibly to do with the building of a large guitar amp is best friends with Christopher Lloyd's mad scientist Doc Brown. Marty gets stuck in and Still thrilling come the end, even when you know what happens.

And while the sequels aren't quite up to the first film's standard, hanging out with Marty and Doc is never less than a blast. The coming-of-age formula has rarely been executed as warmly or as likably as this quietly brilliant little comedy-drama from Superbad director Greg Mottola. Jesse Eisenberg is the nebbish high school graduate hoping to earn a few bucks in the summer before college; Kristen Stewart is the cynical-but-kind object of his infatuation who stands firmly on her own two feet.

Together they negotiate an eccentric s theme park, and their own awkward adolescent feelings, in a rollercoaster of emotions and amusements. This ultra-violent, ultra-intertwined masterpiece is one of five Tarantino films available on UK Netflix. Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn applies his day-glo visual sensibilities to the horror genre in this satirical tale of vacuous models in Los Angeles. As ever with Refn, it looks striking and pushes the boundaries of taste, with a moody and dramatic pulsing synth score from Cliff Martinez.

A true story about collateralised debt obligations from the guy who directed Talladega Nights? The Big Short was always something of an incongruous proposition. But with effervescent scattershot direction, and dynamite performances from the likes of Christian Bale, Steve Carell, and a jacuzzi-dwelling Margot Robbie, it is at once instantly entertaining and extraordinarily disturbing.

Comedy, and real-life horror, in the same gold-plated spoonful. Come for the tender, unsettling atmosphere, stay for the most accurate representation of text messaging ever captured on film. Snowpiercer 's Bong Joon-ho returns to the monster-movie proclivities of his earlier The Host.

But Okja is a very different beast. An environmental fable, it's also a fantastical story of friendship between a young girl [Ahn Seo-hyun] and a strange, shy and introverted animal on a long journey together. Okja itself is a sort of hippo-pig, genetically engineered for the food industry by Tilda Swinton's shady multinational company. It;s not often you get dystopian sci-fi and wide-eyed Spielbergian movie magic in the same stew, but Director Bong and writer Jon Ronson somehow mix the disparate ingredients perfectly.

Abrams-produced found-footage monster movie Cloverfield got a last-minute spiritual sequel eight years later — and the most surprising thing about it is how it is. He insists that a catastrophic invasion is happening outside, but Michelle suspects his fantasies extend more towards the kidnapping of young women. Taut, tense, and only tangential to the original. One of the most genuinely feel-good films of recent years, Pride tells the true story of a group of gay activists who offered solidarity to the plight of Welsh miners during the strikes in The true-life tale was sent back to the drawing board, to some extent, when real events overtook it and Bin Laden was finally located and taken out.

But the fundamentals of Bigelow's story - of the small CIA team dedicated to tracking down the terrorist leader in a hunt that spanned a decade - remained the same. Its political and moral issues are thorny, but this is far from the hoo-ra, pro-torture disaster its critics tried to label it.

Find your warmest blanket, cook up a hearty feast, and prepare to watch Leonardo DiCaprio freeze in the American wilderness and munch on bison livers to stay alive in Alejandro G. All of the usual Woodyisms are in there: The message here was clear: SeaWorld was committing animal cruelty on an industrial scale.

This is cinema as genuine, tangible, real-life change. Macy plan to get rich quick falters at every turn, he soon finds himself pursued by the very persistent — and very pregnant — police chief Marge Gunderson Frances McDormand. The Beehive pub punch-up is one for the ages. Another list, another great Philip Seymour Hoffman performance. As a story about the murder of a Kansas family turns into his most famous book In Cold Blood , Truman finds himself fascinated by one of the men responsible.

You only need one incentive to add this to your watchlist: Compellingly argued, propulsively told, and hugely relevant. Watched all of them already? Looper Before he found The Last Jedi , Rian Johnson cooked up this smart, bold and original sci-fi story — a time-twisting crime saga about an assassin whose latest hit is his future self.

Kubo and the Two Strings With just four films, Laika have already proved themselves as an animation house to rank among Pixar and Ghibli. Gravity Director Alfonso Cuaron followed up his bleak dystopia Children of Men with a totally different type of sci-fi — a space-bound disaster survival movie, pitching Sandra Bullock against the vast emptiness of the cosmos. Hot Fuzz Shaun of the Dead is where it all started. Seven After his difficult experience on feature debut Alien 3 , David Fincher bounced back with one of the greatest — and grimmest — crime thrillers of all time.

It shows off the acting prowess of Kristen Stewart who is superb as an American 'personal shopper' living in Paris who caters to the needs of an infuriating supermodel. And it just so happens, Stewart's character is also a medium who starts to interact with what she believes is her not-long dead brother. Personal Shopper is one movie which doesn't let you really know what it wants to be until the end - and that is what makes it great.

Mudbound proves that Netflix is getting serious with the movies it is producing. Dope was a revelation when it was released in Part coming-of-age drama, part hip-hop homage, the movie is about a group of teenagers who go to a party and end up tangled up in drug dealing. While that sounds all very gritty, the film plays it for laughs more than often, punctuated by moments of drama.

A heartfelt and considered look at Martin Luther King Jr's struggle to gain equal voting rights, campaigning in racially-charged Alabama, Selma was one of the finest films of and was rightly nominated for a Best Picture Oscar as a result.

It may have missed out on the top gong, but David Oyelowo's performance as the civil rights leader is a powerful one, with a supporting cast recreating the inspiring story with great respect.

A superb script and superb performances from Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as the brothers and Nick Nolte as the alcoholic father, make this a must see. Not only did Network spawn one of the greatest lines shouted in a movie - "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore! The plot is great: What ensues is a harsh look at TV that's still prescient today. Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most divisive directors around and he's not looking to change that with The Neon Demon.

It features a fantastic central performance by Elle Fanning and never compromises - this makes for a difficult but ultimately rewarding watch. Anyone who doubts the acting caliber of Tom Hardy needs to watch Bronson immediately. Hardy commands the screen as the titular inmate, bulking on the body mass and belting out charisma and chaos in equal measure.

Pulp Fiction is Quentin Tarantino at his finest. Endlessly quotable and always a refreshing watch, Tarantino re-invents what a crime movie should be. He does this be interlocking seemingly unrelated stories in a non-linear way, riffing on pop culture and breathing new life into old actors - including John Travolta, Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson. This film deserves all the accolades it's garnered over the years. It's just a shame Tarantino has never bettered it.

Okja is a fantastic movie that proves Netflix really does know what it's doing when it comes to commissioning films. Made by Bong Joon Ho, one of the greatest directors around, the film is the strange tale of a little girl and her best friend, a giant animal called Okja. The whole movie may well be an ode to animal activism but it's such a refreshing movie that you don't mind it preaching to you on occasion. Now you have this on-board Netflix, can you please grab the UK rights for Snowpiercer - another superb Bong Joon Ho movie that never saw the light of day in Britain.

This is a movie that was close to not being made. Just as shooting began, funding was pulled and it means that star Matthew McConaughey may have had to drop out, as he needed to put all the weight on he had lost for playing Ron Woodroof, an electrician diagnosed with Aids.

Money was found, though, and we're glad it was as this is a sometimes harrowing but strangely uplifting account of someone who goes to the extra mile to get their hands on an experimental Aids drug that can lessen the effects of the disease.

McConaughey is fantastic as the makeshift drug runner while his partner in crime is Jared Leto as Rayon, a trans woman who helps him on his journey. Despite the budget cut, there was Oscar nominations aplenty for the film with it winning Best Makeup. A quirky tale about a man called Harold Crick played by Will Ferrell who lives a normal, kinda dull existence and one day begins to hear someone narrating his life. Everything about the narration is super accurate, but when it reveals he's doing to die soon he tries to find the author to stop her, well, killing him off.

Some Like it Hot is a classic, and for good reason. Winner of numerous Academy Awards and Golden Globes, and featuring three of Hollywood's greats at the top of their game, it's a hilarious movie, with unforgettable central performances. After witnessing the Valentine's day massacre, two male musicians try to escape town in disguise, as women.

If you've never watched it, treat yourself. If you have, you don't need any convincing to watch it again. Watch on Netflix Now. This laugh-out-loud, yet totally heart-warming, comedy from Judd Apatow is perfect for easy Sunday watching. It's about a TV presenter, played by Katherine Heigl, who has to navigate the tricky ins-and-outs of having an unplanned pregnancy with the unemployed and kinda immature Ben, played by Seth Rogen. Stanley Kubrick's satirical dark comedy classic has landed on Netflix.

This dark comedy explores the fears around the Cold War between the US and Soviet Union, and the threat of impending nuclear disaster. Directed, produced and also co-written by Kubrick, the story centres around a US Air Force general who decides to order a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union.

It then follows the action of a bomber after it's set off, as well as the heated debates about calling off the whole operation before the general brings about the end of the world. Okay, so it might not be the light and easy watch you were looking for on a lazy, hungover Sunday. But it's a classic that's one of Kubrick's best.

The premise is great: Gary King Simon Pegg gets his old friends together to relive a pub crawl of their childhood.

The only problem is, everyone has grown up into self-respecting adults except him. But none of this matters when the group of lads get themselves into a very strange situation.

Full of fantastic sight gags that made Baby Driver the success it was, The World's End doesn't quite hit the high notes it should but it has a lot of fun trying in the process.

What a brilliant film. Pride manages to weave 'message' with entertainment effortlessly, charting the true tale of gay rights activists in the UK that help raise money for a small mining town when the strikes are happening. There's superb performances by all but it's the ever-brilliant George MacKay whose standout. The plot for this one is fantastic. Their plan is to get some of it and sell it for a better life. This is one of the funniest comedies to come out of Ireland for a while. Young Offenders is a coming-of-age story with oodles of charm.

When the mascot for the Miami dolphins goes missing he's in for the case of his life. Expect a madcap adventure with a lot of energy and laughs. Richard Linklater's latest is a bedfellow to Dazed and Confused. As with most Linklater movies, not much happens in the movie but the characterisation is so spot on, that it really doesn't matter.

One of the best films you probably missed in , The Nice Guys is cult director Shane Black at his best. Achingly funny and whip-smart, too, the film is about a private eye and a heavy in the '70s and the shenanigans they get up to. A comedy all about three retired men who go to Las Vegas to throw a bachelor party for their last remaining single friend. Sure that might not sound like the recipe for the best movie, but it's worth a watch because it's stars Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline.

We don't really need to tell you the synopsis of the Ghostbusters reboot, do we? You know the drill. Critics were pretty divided when this version came out, with many praising the fresh approach but not being too keen on some of the story and script.

Then again, it was always going to be near impossible to create a story so similar to the original. A cult comedy horror made in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead, Tucker and Dale vs Evil is a whole lot of fun. Hillbillies Tucker and Dale head out to a cabin in the woods for a vacation and, well, all horror breaks loose. With barrels of laughs and buckets of blood, don't expect award-winning performances but it's a lot of fun.

Alexander Payne proves once again that he is one of the best directors around with Nebraska, a film that follows elderly Woody Grant Bruce Dern who embarks on a mile journey to Nebraska to cash in the supposed winnings of a sweepstake. Nebraska is full of heart but also home truths when Woody arrives back in his hometown after years away.

Based on Bret Easton Ellis' tale of greed, capitalism and serial killing, this dark comedy-meets-horror flick has a stellar cast, including Christian Bale, Reese Witherspoon and Willem Dafoe, among many others.

It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's a deep and intense rollercoaster ride through sprawling monologues, 80s pop tunes and murder. Martin Freeman stars in this Australian post-apocalyptic thriller that's based on a short film of the same name. It's about a world overtaken by a zombie virus and a husband and wife who are trying to survive with their young daughter. They've managed to stay uninfected so far because they've been living on a houseboat, but as you can imagine, that all changes.

It's been mostly praised by critics, who enjoy its refreshing take on the zombie genre, its emotional depth and Freeman's performance. A series of murders has ravaged London, which leads many of the locals to believe there's only one explanation: But, as you'd probably expect, it turns out it isn't a creepy monster that's to blame after all.

It's the perfect horror setup: At the same time a murderer is about to be executed, only for his psychiatrist to make a last-ditch effort to keep him alive. So, how are these two tales linked? Well, that would be telling. Directed by The Wolverine's James Mangold, Identity may think it's brainier than it is but at least it's a whole lot of fun. Creep was a mini indie marvel when it came out a few years back.

In the sequel, Duplass is back and this time he lures someone to his home by claiming to be a serial killer. What ensues is a tense, brilliant low-fi ride. Bringing the tale of the story, which will be making anyone who has seen it wince right now, straight to your living room. The movie follows a famous author who is rescued from a car crash by a fan. It uses some old-school cinematic techniques to give the movie a classic feel and it really works - having back projection for some of the special effects offers up a really unnerving look at Dracula.

Gary Oldman is fantastic as the titular character. The only let down is Keanu Reeves who is utterly miscast. If you can put up with that, though, then what you have is one of the most lavish horror movies ever made. The Purge is low budget but brilliantly high concept. The idea is that there is one day a year when the world can go a bit crazy murdering and looting and it's all completely legal.

This makes for a fantastic adrenaline rush of a movie that's modelled on John Carpenter style 80s heist movies. It's really good fun, as is a number of the sequels. Gerald's Game is one of Stephen King's leaner novels, with the majority of the action taking place in one room, with one woman Jessie Burlingame alone, handcuffed to a bed, after a night of passion goes awry, with just her thoughts, her dead husband, and a number of things that go bump in the night for company.

With this in mind, director Mike Flannigan has managed to pull off an adaptation that could have been very one note, by creatively bringing Burlingame's - a fantastic Carla Gugino - thoughts to life.

It's a bit too melodramatic at times and does suffer from the King curse of never knowing how to properly end his stories, but there's a lot to like about this Netflix exclusive. This horror story is all about a robbery gone wrong. The three thieves hoping to steal money from a blind veteran's home are in for a terrifying surprise when they realise he's much more violent, unpredictable and aware than they originally thought.

Blair Witch, the kind of remake, quasi sequel to the scare classic The Blair Witch Project was a big surprise when it first announced. Director Adam Wingard had made the film covertly with the title The Woods and then when it premiered at San Diego Comic-Con, they announced its link to the Blair Witch story and the crowd went, well, crazy. The film is a worthy addition to the franchise.

It keeps the shaky cam stuff but also adds in some modern day twists such as drones and GPS. It takes a while to get going but once the scares start they are relentless. This super-smart horror from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard is a movie that tries its hardest to turn the horror genre on its head, with continual knowing nods to movies of the past and a post-modern spin of the well-worn 'cabin in the woods' theme.

Don't go into this movie expecting a normal film-watching experience but do expect to have fun watching a highly original script at play. Thanks to Netflix's sometimes surprising rights, Under The Shadow has popped on to the service around the same time as the movie's Blu-ray release.

We're glad it has. It's a fantastic horror film set in Tehran in the '80s, focusing on a mother and daughter seemingly terrorised by otherworldly beings in an apartment block. The dread in this film is slow release but palpable, making it a terrific, scary watch.

This ultra low budget movie comes from the Duplass Brothers and is one of the most inventive chillers in years. Hush has a brilliant premise. Directed by Mike Flanagan it revolves around a killer who tries to get the best of a girl in the house on her own. So far so 'every horror movie ever made', but the girl who is being stalked happens to be deaf. Yes, the home invasion genre is getting tired, but Hush manages to quietly breathe new life into it.

One of the more high-concept horrors on the list, Would You Rather is about a group of seven people who are invited to a millionaire's house to play a game of 'Would You Rather'. The game turns out to be one of the most sadistic around. Justin Lin directs the latest instalment of Star Trek with bombast. And thank goodness he does, because the explosions and flash camera angles manage to mask some of the cracks in this film. Don't get us wrong: Star Trek Beyond is a lot of fun, but feels a little smaller than the first two rebooted movies.

There's more humour, though, and the cast still shine. Next time, though, more Bones please! Alex Garland is a master of sci-fi. It has skipped past a wide cinema release, heading direct to Netflix. This sharp supernatural thriller sees Natalie Portman play a botanist investigating a mysterious, and expanding, wall of light in the deep south of America. Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity is a cinematic masterpiece.

We're pretty sure you could watch it without sound or subtitles and still be in absolute awe of the aesthetics. But if you did that you'd also be missing out on a well-paced drama starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock full of twists and turns all about things not going quite as planned in space. It also has an exceptional soundtrack and visual effects. It's one to turn all the lights off for and watch on the biggest screen in your house - you won't be disappointed. Netflix surprised everyone when it revealed it had the streaming rights to the third instalment of the loose Cloverfield franchise, the Cloverfield Paradox, and now it has the original film.

Each Cloverfield film is different, and the original uses the 'found footage' narrative device to document an attack on New York by a huge alien monster. While the Cloverfield Paradox didn't quite capture the magic of the original, the first film is definitely worth catching while it's on Netflix.

Based on the popular book series by the same name, Divergent is set in a dystopian and post-apocalyptic US in which people are divided up based on their skills and virtues. The main character is Beatrice, who finds out she doesn't fit into one of the set categories, but is instead Divergent.

It's the first instalment in The Divergent Series and two other movies, Insurgent and Allegiant follow it. A fourth and final movie is currently in production, but there have been a few hiccups due to the fact Allegiant didn't perform as well as expected at the box office. Given it was made in , the effects of Back To The Future still stand up today.

Actually, so does everything about the movie. It's a fantastic old-school romp that showcases Michael J Fox as one of the most affable actors around. Spielberg may have only produced the movie but his fingerprints are all over it. Back To The Future is a classic that is endlessly fun and rewatchable. The effects may look a tad dated now but The Abyss was SFX filmmaking at its best when it was released in the late '80s.

Directed by James Cameron, sandwiched between Aliens and Terminator 2 in his oeuvre, the film is about a diving team looking for a lost nuclear submarine but instead encounter something wholly different. It's a thought-provoking slice of sci-fi that's more thriller than action.

In the not-so-distant future, people are ranked, judged and given jobs not based on their abilities and interests, but on their genetic makeup. Gattaca follows the story of a man with less-than-perfect DNA Ethan Hawke who is desperate to travel into space, which is a privilege only reserved for the perfect.

Jim Carey has always been an actor that takes things to extremes - whether it's his face gurning or physical comedy. Mixing exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Carey that the studios didn't want released, this is one revealing documentary about the things people do to make people laugh. Prepare to re-live your childhood with this movie length documentary that takes a deep dive into He-Man, its origins, stories and the impact the character had that went well beyond a toy line and a TV show.

The great thing about this documentary is it's the result of a crowdfunding campaign from a few years ago. It's always great to see a genuinely good idea become a reality. Full of hubris that you can only get when a documentary crew gets more than they bargained for see also: The Jinx , Weiner follows the mayoral campaign of Anthony Weiner only for him to be embroiled in a sex scandal as the cameras are still shooting.

Director Martin Scorsese may well be known for his Hollywood productions but he has a decent sideline in rock documentaries. The latest to hit Netflix focuses on George Harrison, knitting together archive footage with interviews and home movies. With nuclear war still a threat today and a growing one at that , a documentary on how atomic warfare came to be was always going to feel prescient but The Bomb feels like more than that.

It's a full-on assault on the senses that weaves archive footage together to create a non-linear, experimental piece that's more mosaic than montage, with a message that's pretty clear: While it's no doubt not as potent as it was in a live space, it's still well worth a watch.

Like a real-life Spinal Tap, the story of Anvil, the oft-forgotten heavy metal pioneers is as tragic as it is funny and uplifting.

A huge influence on the likes of Metallica and metal's megastars, Anvil never got to enjoy the success of their peers, resigned to the axe-wielding history books. Anvil never went away. Continuing to shred on the toilet circuit, the documentary follows the ageing rockers as they make one last attempt at hitting the big time. Throw up the horns, but keep a hanky at the ready — Anvil: The Story of Anvil is as good as a rock-doc gets.

The White Helmets is, quite rightly, the winner of Netflix's first-ever Oscar. It was directed by the only British winner of the Oscars, too. Orlando von Einsiedel directs this stunning look at the day to day operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, volunteers who assist neighbourhoods that have been bombed, helping find survivors amongst the devastation. It may only be 40 minutes long, but the bravery and tragedy you witness will stay with you forever. Netflix bagged its first Bafta thanks to this stunning documentary.

The documentary was made by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who also made the superb Selma. Some Kind of Monster is a intimate look at one of the most successful heavy metal bands ever, Metallica. We see a band that's been together for 20 years talk through their emotions and pain points.
