The most important award this movie received is without a doubt the Oscar for Best Picture in 2020. Though the film isn’t exactly about parasites, the parasitic metaphor hits home as a low-income family steadily infiltrates a wealthier family, feeding off them like fleas on a dog.
However, both sides have dark secrets that are revealed by the film’s bizarre conclusion. The film’s theme isn’t the only thing to look out for; Bong’s flawless directing and imagery are complemented by an outstanding ensemble cast.

Nightmare Alley is a neo-noir psychological thriller movie made in the United States in 2021. Guillermo del Toro directed the movie based on a script by del Toro and Kim Morgan. Nightmare Alley is suspense on another level but isn’t that what you wanted?
Guillermo del Toro delivers a stunning noir melodrama filled with gruesomely enjoyable performances and bizarre surprises. Contrary to popular belief, he demonstrates that two businesses are similar to showbusiness: psychotherapy and crime.
With his customary love of the surreal and hallucinogenic, the same reverence of classic golden age Americana, and occasional spasms of body-horror brutality, Del Toro leads us into a terrifying fairground.
Nightmare Alley is based on a 1946 novel by pulp author William Lindsay Gresham, who was fascinated by the sleazy carnies, circuses, traveling acts, and magicians in the United States, with their strange occult shimmer.
Nightmare Alley was initially released in 1947, starring Tyrone Power, and now Bradley Cooper is reprising the character of Stan Carlisle, a man with no money and a violent background who has to hide for a while.
The Lord of the Rings is a series of three epic fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson. The movies are based on the novel written by J. R. R. Tolkien. The films have subtitled The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002), and The Return of the King (2003).
We can hardly tell you which one of those three is the best, that is impossible to decide since all three parts are superstars of the movie production.
Here is a small peek into the plot of this masterpiece.
The story begins a long time ago when the Dark Lord Sauron forged a Ring of Power to control Middle‑earth. But the Ring was stolen, and for a long time thought to be lost. Many years later the Ring of Power is found by hobbit Bilbo Baggins. In a land called the Shire, Frodo inherits the Ring from his uncle Bilbo. Now Frodo must take a journey across the lands of Middle‑earth and throw the Ring into the volcano; Mt. Doom, the only place it can be destroyed.
And as you can imagine the old evil Sauron doesn’t approve of the idea of destroying his PRECIOUS ring (you will see what we did here when you encounter the Gollum) which he needs to control all the other rings he created. Make sure to read our DETAILED PLOT section and see why LOTR series is considered probably the best of the best movies on HBO Max right now.

Jurassic Park, also later referred to as Jurassic World is an American science fiction franchise with the theme of a disastrous attempt to create a theme park of cloned dinosaurs in a modern world.

Team: write that down, write that down!
The Batman (2022) is a 2022 American superhero movie based on the DC Comics character Batman. Produced by Warner Bros, it is a reboot of the widely popular Batman Film Franchise.
The movie picks up in Bruce Wayne’s second year of prowling the streets as the dark knight and finds him involved in an investigation into a series of killings that were committed by The Riddler (Paul Dano).
Batman follows the Riddler’s trail to the ruins of an orphanage funded by Bruce’s murdered parents, Thomas, and Martha Wayne, where he learns that the Riddler holds a grudge against his family.
What director Matt Reeves tried to do here is, give a new spin on a Batman. Incredibly hard task as batman is already well preserved in our heads. We can’t say that director Matt Reeves failed at this task.
The movie is an adaptation of the book, directed by Denis Villeneuve, who perfectly visualizes all scenes. “Dune” is set in the very distant future, in which humanity has evolved in both scientific and religious ways. The people in this scenario aren’t on the Earth, and the imperial family named Atreides is tasked with ruling the desert planet of Arrakis.
Which yields something called “the spice”. As you can imagine since “the spice” is so valuable they are not the only ones that want to control it.
“Dune” is a mythological and emotionally packed hero’s journey that tells the narrative of a smart and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his comprehension, who must travel to the universe’s most hostile planet to protect the future of his family and people.
Only those who can overcome their fear will survive as nefarious powers struggle for the planet’s only supply of the most valuable resource in existence, a spice. Commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential.
This movie deserves its place on our list of best movies on HBO Max but if you are not a fan of science–fiction movies then Dune probably won’t be your cup of tea.
Wonder Woman 1984 is a 2020 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character Wonder Woman.
It stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen, and was directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham from a narrative by Johns and Jenkins.
The film depicts Diana and her prior love Steve Trevor as they face up against Maxwell Lord and Cheetah in 1984 during the Cold War.
Is it even necessary to discuss Zack Snyder’s Justice League?
This Justice League follows a team of superheroes, including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), as they attempt to save the world from a powerful supervillain, much like the original 2017 non-Snyder cut, but this version includes new scenes and world-building elements.
The film is also significantly longer than the last version, clocking in at somewhat more than four hours. We did not complain when we watched it since we enjoyed every second of it.
Aquaman is a 2018 American superhero film based on the same-named DC Comics character. It is the sixth film in the DC Extended Universe, produced by DC Entertainment and Peter Safran Productions and released by Warner Bros. Pictures (DCEU). Aquaman is considered the greatest success in DC Universe and since we agree here it is, on the list of best movies on HBO Max right now.
James Wan directed the picture, which was based on a script by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Will Beall. It stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry / Aquaman, who sets out to govern Atlantis and prevent his half-brother, King Orm, from unifying the seven undersea kingdoms to destroy the surface world. In supporting roles, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
A delightful original movie, “Free Guy” stars Ryan Reynolds as an NPC (aka Non-Playable Character) that finds himself in a “Sims”- like video game played largely by online real gamers.
When he suddenly gains consciousness while still in a game, he starts making decisions by himself outside of his predetermined routine. A female gamer from the outside world played by Jodie Comer enlists his help to find some embedded code within the game.
Taika Waititi plays a nefarious video game designer, and Joe Keery plays an employee at the game company who may be helpful in Reynolds’s quest.
If you’re looking for a surprisingly emotional film that can be viewed by an audience of all ages, make sure to check out “Free guy”.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, was directed by Jake Kasdan and released in 2017. The movie was co-written by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Scott Rosenberg, and Jeff Pinkner.
As four high school students who were in school detention together come upon an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of before—Jumanji. They are quickly pulled into the game’s jungle environment, converting into the avatars they choose.
Dwayne Johnson plays gamer Spencer, who transforms into a brawny adventurer; Kevin Hart plays football jock Fridge, who loses “the top two feet of his body” and transforms into the “brain of the team”, popular girl Bethany transforms into a middle-aged male teacher (Jack Black) and Martha transforms into a super cool warrior (Karen Gillan).
They learn that Jumanji isn’t simply a game to play; it’s also a game to survive. To escape the program and escape to the actual world, they’ll have to embark on the most difficult journey of their lives.
Here is a comment from one of the viewers of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle:
“Funny but not that funny, thrilling but not that thrilling, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle works well enough—but doesn’t live up to its potential. Nonetheless, decent execution coupled with an amazing concept—and a terrific cast who relish in the opportunity—make this game worth a run.”
Even though we would not be this harsh on this great movie we partially agree with whoever wrote this comment. We agree that Jumanji has more potential, and we are sure that the next part will be a hit.
Be sure to check Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on HBO Max and cast your own opinion on it.

Megan Park’s feature directorial debut, The Fallout, is a 2022 American teen drama film directed by her. Jenna Ortega plays Vada Cavell, a high school girl who has experienced tremendous emotional trauma as a result of a school shooting incident
During the school shooting.
Vada Cavell (Jenna Ortega), a 16-year-old girl, locks herself in a toilet stall with two other terrified classmates, Mia (‘Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler) and Quinton (Jenna Ortega) (Niles Fitch). After the incident, Vada grows closer to her classmates and creates a close bond with them.
As she experienced emotional trauma after the mass shooting she is also going through changes in her relationship with her family.
Therapy and the pressure to return to school, as well as disputes with her activist closest friend, Nick, aren’t helping (Will Ropp). And the obvious question she is asking herself is, how to deal with this hard situation and how to overcome the stress.
The Fallout is a horrific piece in which the protagonists are treated in a searing and painful manner. It’s surprising how sensitive the author is to the details of each character’s experience. It brought us close to the main characters and we dont regret putting it on our list of best movies on HBO Max right now.
While the epidemic hampered Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Narrative at the box office, that doesn’t take away from this innovative retelling of the Romeo and Juliet story. Spielberg modifies the iconic musical with alterations befitting a modern version, including casting Rita Moreno as the new heroine Valentina.
While Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler do a fantastic job as the new Tony and Maria, Ariana DeBose’s Anita steals the stage with her vibrant enthusiasm. DeBose offers an inspiring performance throughout the film, from dancing through the streets of New York to her tragic revelation at the conclusion.
Spielberg’s West Side Story is a rare remake that is maybe even better than the original.
This “West Side Story” is filled with so much beauty. It combines elements that have deeply affected pop culture.
A Star Is Born is a 2018 American musical love drama film directed and produced by Bradley Cooper (in his directorial debut), with a script written by Cooper, Eric Roth, and Will Fetters.

After the original 1937 American romantic drama, the 1954 American musical, and the 1976 American musical, this is the fourth cinematic adaptation of the plot. If you ask us it is probably the best one but not everyone might agree, that is probably the reason we did put it on our list of best movies on HBO Max right now.

Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off is a documentary movie directed by Sam Jones, is nominally a documentary on the world’s greatest skateboarder, but it’s also, perhaps unwittingly, a look at Generation X’s unwillingness (chillingly, even worse than Boomers) to recognize that they’re getting too old for some things.
Because there appear to be some clear boundaries drawn between what Hawk was and wasn’t prepared to discuss on camera, this is the most interesting aspect of an otherwise very repetitive true narrative about perseverance in the face of hardship.
The movie is at its best when it examines Hawk’s insatiable desire to learn a trick – his attempts at landing a 900 are the heart and soul of Until the Wheels Fall Off. The movie shows Tony’s family, friends, and counterparts talking about him and his career.
Their view of his career and his personality maybe shows the best why he is considered a skate God.
“Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off” is probably the movie for sportsmen looking for an inspirational story but it deserves its place on the list of best movies on HBO Max right now.
“The Last Duel,” a compelling tale of betrayal and retribution set against the cruelty and female oppression of 14th century France, comes from Twentieth Century Studios and renowned filmmaker Ridley Scott.
Ridley Scott’s medieval epic movie is, above everything else, a movie about men’s folly. It’s a crazy, long horror-comedy about ladies in the 14th century who were at the mercy of arrogant, petty, and vicious males who were only concerned with their position even when someone’s life was on the line.
The Last Duel’s criticism of systemic patriarchy isn’t as strong as it could be, but it’s still a well-acted, thought-provoking drama with epic grandeur.

Dunkirk is a 2017 war film directed, written, and eventually produced by Christopher Nolan that tells the story of the Dunkirk exodus during World War II from the viewpoints of land, sea, and air. Nolan has gone back in time with Dunkirk, bringing to life one of the most major events of the twentieth century: the rescue of British troops at Dunkirk.
Individual acts of bravery and valor are highlighted in the film, which is based on tiny details of decision and chance, on which the overall historic event is built.
The time the movie is based on is World War II (WWII). On the French shore at Dunkirk, the German troops had surrounded about 400,000 British and French troops. A tiny contingent of largely French soldiers is guarding the perimeter around which the British and French troops have gathered, which is shrinking as German forces advance.
The majority of the British and French troops are now on the beach, awaiting ships to arrive and transport them back to the United Kingdom. The British soldiers are planned to be evacuated first. The main problem at the time of the planned evacuation was that Dunkirk can be accessed only by one dock which must be guarded against the German war machine.
The bravery of Allied troops in World War II is perfectly captured with every frame in this movie and we are 100% sure you will enjoy it. While making the list of best movies on HBO Max right now no movie did what Dunkirk managed, it showed us that there always was and always will be people prepared to sacrifice themselves for others. So don’t wait any longer and jump into this epic historical moment with Nolan’s masterpiece.
