Science Fiction, Thriller, Drama, Mystery

Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat—or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what’s really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn’t so simple, the danger is very real.

A great little surprise in the science-fiction genre. I had a doubt about superhero theme but totally no complaints after watching the movie

Lake Tahoe, 1969. Seven strangers, each one with a secret to bury, meet at El Royale, a decadent motel with a dark past. In the course of a fateful night, everyone will have one last shot at redemption.

OK, it’s weird, but I will compare this movie to the Passengers. Both trailers wanted the movies to look more mainstream. Both movies are just the perfect balance of everything.…

A crime drama set in 1970s Boston, about a gun sale which goes wrong.

It’s hard to believe how I like this movie. Basically, it’s filmed in a single location, has no scenario with people screaming and shooting the whole time. And it’s hilarious.…

In Los Angeles at the turn of the 1970s, drug-fueled detective Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend.

I see how this isn‘t a generally loved movie. It‘s almost too confusing, but luckily the detective line doesn‘t matter that much after all. The hippie detective moves through a…
