A terrifying, amazing, and disgusting case, and a unique voice of terror. This movie will remind you of the advice your mother gave you as a child: “don’t eat anything from a stranger.” This advice will go unnoticed by Riley and Sam, who unknowingly engage in an evil experience.

Love and Monsters
A life and death mission with an unexpected hero, supernatural villains, and a dystopian setting. It’s one of the top-rated top teen adventures.

The story will teach you many things about life nowadays in the USA, it’s about a nomad woman who is traveling through the US, shortly after her husband died.
Dune is another movie based on a book that was most expected by its fans. We think that the film Dune is a faithful and great adaptation of the novel, and it was quite successful all over the world.
As we have told you, Dune is placed on a planet called Arrakis, where you can find one of the most important raw materials, the famous “spice”, which is a drug that lengthens human life. If you didn’t watch it in the cinema, we recommend that you watch it on the biggest screen you can find, and with a good sound system, to enjoy Hans Zimmer’ Music.
The Night House
This movie is, for us, the best scary movie of the year. Also, Rebecca Hall’s performance will blow your mind.
After the death (suicide) of her husband, Rebecca discovers things about him and his secret life. Owen, her husband, was plotting a strange event in the vicinity of her home, which is located in the woods near the lake.
This movie is perfect if you like horror movies, in this thriller you will experience guilt, pain, and restlessness.
Winner of the Giraldillo de Oro in the last edition of the Seville European Film Festival! This monumental film by Cristi Puiu leaves us breathless with very long conversations and shots.

Tensions rise as Puiu weaves together his critical portrait of the bourgeoisie in 20th century Romania.
Carlo Mirabella-Davis’s film, fantastic, rare, wonderful. It’s about a young housewife, played by Haley Bennett, who spends her days alone doing chores and when she discovers that she is pregnant, she begins to feel that she is losing control of her life. Your solution to it? Begin to swallow small objects.
The director plays with sounds, colors, and textures and represents the battlefield that all female bodies can tolerate.
M. Night Shyamalan will surprise you with this new work. This film is an exploration of the passage of time and the speed of life through fantasy and pharmaceutical conspiracies.
In this film, you can see a group of people spending time on the beach where they cannot get out and where time moves faster than normal. Are you gonna lose this drama?
This film represents the routines of an assistant in the entertainment industry. During a day of work, the protagonist experiences the abuse that a lot of women have experienced in office positions for so long.
This film is the best reflection of the need for movement.
The French Dispatch
Another wonderful work by Wes Anderson is full of charm and humor. This film represents eccentric cinema, telling people’s stories honestly and uniquely. This film is creativity, real cinema, you cannot miss it.
A film praised by American critics, winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for Youn Yuh-Jung, this film by Lee Isaac Chung is undoubtedly one of the titles of the season, and also one of the best movies of the year.
It recounts the experience of a South Korean family in the United States, who moved to a rural area to open a farm. It’s a film full of sensitivity, which captures the experience of those immigrants who seek better lives in sometimes hostile places, and those families who are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure the future of their youngest members.
Watching this film will be the most surprising cinematic experience of the year. It won the Palme d’Or at the last edition of the Cannes Film Festival, it’s destined to become a cult classic thanks to its complex look at gender, parent-child relationships, and violence.
It is considered one of the best movies of the year, one of the smartest westerns of recent years. This film is about two men in a demystified Wild West, where they discover a good commercial catch cooking some sweets cooked with milk stolen from a nearby cow.
You can’t miss it, it is full of sensitivity, hope, and nuances.
Promising Young Woman
Carey Mulligan takes revenge on those who ruined the life of her best friend and, at the same time, condemned herself. Don’texpect the typical ‘rape and revenge’ of raw violence and masculine gaze, but a provocative film that mixes the thriller with the romantic comedy and perpetrates through an inherently feminine imaginary an act of revenge that is not traditionally cathartic, but painfully realistic.
This film has a lot to tell, the Malaysian director presents us with two very different men (one of them is his fetish actor, Lee Kang-Sheng), from the observational passivity of one to the frenetic activity of the other, from youth to maturity.
It seems that a lot separates them, but the filmmaker achieves the impossible. This film talks about loneliness, love, and the passage of time without saying just a word, in a kind of contemporary silent film where words are unnecessary.
This film by Leos Carax has not gone unnoticed, either by the music of the Sparks brothers that you won’t get out of your head, by the baby doll, or by that cunnilingus from Adam Driver to Marion Cotillard without stopping singing for a second.
Without a doubt, one of the most surprising films of the year, with humor and music.
The protagonist of ‘Shiva Baby’ is Danielle, a young woman who finishes her usual session with her ‘sugar daddy’, Max, and is late to a family funeral, although she has no idea of who has died. But what she will discover in that event will turn her life upside down.
The Mitchells against the machines
We are not forgetting the most amazing cartoon movies of the whole year! This film is about the Mitchell family, who has a road trip interrupted by a technological insurrection that threatens humanity.
It has the humor of The LEGO Movie and the originality and inventiveness of ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. This film shows there is life outside Pixar or Disney, are you going to miss it?
Summer of Soul
And we don’t forget the documentaries, this is considered the best of the whole year because It’s an exciting miracle that connects the present and the past through music. It explores the Harlem Cultural Festival held in the United States in 1969.
This documentary film is full of suspense, courage, and sacrifice. Hogir, in Mahmud, along with his fellow volunteers, is dedicated to freeing kidnapped women from sexual slavery (at the hands of ISIS).
This document will generate empathy with the worst nightmares that the victims have had to go through. Testimonies also speak of these nightmares, and they refer to the occurrences with the recruiters.
It’s a science-fiction thriller about Sarah, an 18-year-old girl who participates in a study that is about sleep. What can go wrong? We don’t say anything more for spoiler danger, but we don’t doubt that this film is going to leave you breathless.
And you, what movie or documentary would you add to this list?
