1. House of Gucci (2021)

Lady Gaga stars as Patrizia Reggiani, an outsider who came from a humble background and married into the fashionista Gucci family. Patrizia’s ambition quickly unravels the Gucci legacy and triggers a spiral of betrayal, revenge, and, eventually, murder. Will Patrizia get everything she wants in the end?

This movie is based on a true story and also stars Adam Driver (​​Maurizio Gucci), Al Pacino (Aldo Gucci), Jared Leto (Paolo Gucci), Jeremy Irons (Rodolfo Gucci), Selma Hayek (Pina Auriemma). Ridley Scott directed this movie.

We think this movie is great because it brings the fashion industry into a new type of light. Have you ever wondered how the Gucci family got started? We asked that and had a better idea of how the masterminds were successful.

2. Gladiator (2000)

One of the classic movies that should always be on your list is an epic historical drama film directed by Ridley Scott. Russell Crowe stars as Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius, who is betrayed when Commodus, the ambitious son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, murders his father and seizes the throne.

As a result, Maximus is forced into slavery, becomes a gladiator, and rises through the arena ranks to avenge the murders of his family and emperor. This film was inspired by Daniel P. Mannix’s 1958 book Those About to Die (formerly titled The Way of the Gladiator).

The film also stars Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Ralf Moller, Oliver Reed, Djimon Hounsou, Derek Jacobi, John Shrapnel, Richard Harris, and Tommy Flanagan.

We like how this film goes back in Roman history. It shows how the Roman soldiers and gladiators were treated versus the enslaved people. With the dynamic duo of Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix, this film never disappoints us and makes us want to act our own version of Gladiator.

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows (2016)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows takes us back to our childhood tv shows. This film is based on the Saturday morning cartoon and comic books Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles get into another battle with their arch enemy, The Shredder, who has recruited new allies: the mutant thugs Bebop and Rocksteady and the alien-being Krang.

This film is the sixth theatrical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and the second and final film in the reboot series. It was directed by Dave Green and stars Megan Fox, Stephen Amell, Will Arnett, Laura Linney, and Tyler Perry.

This action-packed movie takes us back to our childhood when we would sneak out of our bed to watch Saturday morning cartoons. The turtles will always be our favorite.

4. Odd Thomas (2013)

Anton Yelchin stars as a man with special powers, living in a small California town who sees “the lingering dead.” He has other visions, including seeing faceless people wearing bowling shirts who cry out to him to save them. A faceless gunman shoots them all, including Odd. Recovering from this dream, Odd (who was meant to be named Todd but was misprinted on his birth certificate as Odd) works as a short-order cook. Odd describes his ability: “I see dead people, but then, by God, I do something about it.â€

The film is based on the best-selling novel of the same name, the first in the series by author Dean Koontz. The film was directed, written, and co-produced by Stephen Sommers.

We chose this film as one of our favorites because it is based on the Odd Thomas series – it is Koontz's favorite adaptation of all of his novels, and he is one of my favorite authors. Plus, it's a great performance by the late Anton Yelchin.

5. Marry Me (2022)

Jennifer Lopez stars as Kat Valdez, who is set to get married before a global audience of fans to Bastian (Maluma). Seconds before her vows, Kat learns that Bastian has been unfaithful, prompting her to marry Charlie, a stranger in the crowd.

Since Lopez has been in the media quite a bit promoting this film, it captured our attention, along with being fans of the Latina singer.

The film was directed by Kat Coiro and starred Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, Maluma, John Bradley, and Sarah Silverman.

We added this film to our list of favorites because Jennifer Lopez is not just a great music artist but an impressive actress as well. She compliments Owen Wilson well in this dramatic film we had to watch not once but twice.

6. Black Swan (2010)

Natalie Portman, known for Star Wars films, changes her role and image by portraying Nina Sayers, a committed dancer. Sayers struggles to maintain her sanity after winning the lead role in Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. This is one of our favorites due to the seriousness of it, and Portman is in a dancer role. The film also stars Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, and Winona Ryder. Darren Aronofsky directed it.

Black Swan takes you into a dark world of ballet, and Natalie Portman is an actress known for playing every role, no matter the challenge.

7. Carrie (2013)

Based on Stephen King’s book, Carrie this film is about a shy girl outcast by her peers. When sheltered by her religious mother (Julianne Moore), she unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town at her senior prom. This film is a reboot of the 1976 version. It stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Gabriella Wilde, and Portia Doubleday. We enjoy any movie based on Stephen King’s books.

Stephen King’s stories never cease to amaze us, and with this film, we think it may just be better than the original. This particular version brings us a brand new cast and shows us how Carrie would be in this generation of time.
