We have been gifted with a bounty of great blockbusters, proving that filmmakers are continuing to find new ways —both big and small—to entertain, excite and enlighten. There are numerous gems still to come in the months ahead, and I’ll let you know about those too. Also, if you missed my previous post about some of the best series right now, check that out here. For now, check out these movies you should definitely watch if you haven’t already.
For now, check out these movies you should definitely watch if you haven’t already:
1. The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
Samuel L. Jackson never disappoints as an actor. Nearly all his movies are good. This movie just came out but surprisingly, there’s a HD copy already. In it, the world’s top bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice. The two have bad history but they must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time.
2. The Bad Batch.
This movie has Jason Momoa, the guy who played Khal Drogo in Game Of Thrones and Keanu Reeves – the Gun Fu master from John Wick. The storyline is captivating. It revolves around a young girl who becomes prey to cannibals, losing her arm and leg in the process. Rather than succumbing to despair and death, however, she soldiers on and finds love with a flesh-eating family man (Jason Momoa).
The Rock is in every movie nowadays. His latest project, Baywatch is colorful and fun. It’s good for those times when you are bored and just want something nice to cheer you up. What’s it about? Devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon butts heads with a brash new recruit, as they uncover a criminal drug ring that threatens the future of the bay.
4. Free Fire.
Bold, breathless and wickedly fun, Free Fire is an electrifying comedy-thriller about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong.
5. Baby Driver.
You know there’s deep entertainment wherever Jamie Foxx is. The movie is about a talented getaway driver Baby who is forced into working for a crime boss. No more spoilers. Just go watch it. You won’t regret a second.
6. John Wick Chapter 2.
If you are a hardcore action fan and you didn’t watch the first John Wick, you need to do so quickly before watching this one. This movie manages to thrill through masterful action scenes, with bullets flying at a jaw-dropping rate courtesy of Keanu Reeves’ nattily dressed assassin.
7. Wonder Woman.
This movie breathes bracing new life into the increasingly moribund superhero blockbuster menace. Everything flows smoothly, from the origin up to the end where she has to defeat the main bad guy. We all love a good movie with a woman as the main character.
Love war movies? You’ll be in for a treat here. Dunkirk thrives in cinematic mastery as allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German army and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II.
9. Kong: Skull Island.
Scientists and adventurers together with a group of soldiers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean. Cut off from everything they know, they venture into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature.
