When it’s cold outside and it’s raining or even snowing, the best place to spend time is inside, in front of telly with your friends or/and family. And what a better thing to do than to have a movie night with lots of movies and popcorn or other yummy snacks and foods. Today, I will list 10 of my favourite newer movies for a movie night, there’s different genre so I think there should be at least one movie for everybody.
If you click on the name of the movie, it will take you to YouTube and trailer for said movie.
This is my favourite movie and I’ve probably watched it over a hundred times. There’s a 3D and 2D version of it.
It’s a classic story with a few ‘modern’ twists added to it.
Young boy comes to Paris with a dream of becoming a musketeer and meets three most famous ones while challenging them to a fight. Soon they have to join their forces together to beat their enemy and his army.
Actors who are cast in this movie are well known actors from all over the world.
The movie is a combination of comedy, action and drama with a bit of romance added to it.
Classic comedy, which not only girls can enjoy.
The story begins when Olive starts to tell a story how she got from invisible teenager in average American high school to a girl everyone talked about. Book ‘Scarlet Letter’ plays a big part in this movie because one little lie about losing her virginity leads to many more and eventually Olive wearing a big red A on her clothes. Her life is not even similar to what it used to be.
This movie will bring you many laughs but also it sends a message about lying about important things in your life and how some things should be kept private.
To be honest I was a bit sceptical about this movie because I’m not a fan of magicians but once I’ve seen it, it became one of my favourite movies.
Story follows 4 magicians who had solo acts but the mystery ‘Eye’ got them to work together to create an unique magic show in Vegas. They’re like Robin Hood and steal money from the rich to give it to their audience who’s not as random as everyone thought.
Mix FBI into the story and old magician with a show that exposes magic tricks and you get a wild chase around the world to catch ‘the bad guys’.
With some of the best hollywood actors this film couldn’t really be bad but once you add a classic story like Robin Hood to it, it has to be good.
Now You See Me 2
I didn’t think it would be, but the sequel is probably even better than the first movie.
Again 4 magicians but not all 4 are the same. There’s a new female member of the group. The magicians, again, want to undercover the bad man to the innocent people but someone messes with their plans. FBI is still trying to put them behind bars and they accidently end up in China. This time their tricks are more grand and they’re forced to work more as a team then they were before. The ‘Eye’ is still making plans for them but this time Dylan is part of their team and everything they do, he’s behind the scenes. Thaddeus Bradley makes a return and he’s still the mastermind in the game of magic tricks.
Me Before You
Now for this one, I suggest you have a box of tissues on the table next to you.
This is one beautiful story about a young, ordinary girl from British countryside and rich, young man who survived a terrible accident and is paralyzed from neck down. Louisa gets employed by Will’s parents to be his companion. Once she learns how depressed he is, she makes it her mission to show him how good his life still can be. Little by little they fall in love with each other. Despite her best efforts, he still doesn’t want to live his life in a wheelchair, dependant on everyone around him. She gave him some of the best moments of his life and in return he gave her the possibility of escaping the village she lives in and living her life to the fullest.
The Other Boleyn Girl
This is a historical drama, it’s based on real historical figures and real events in British history.
Mary and Anne are sisters whose father and uncle want for their family to have status and wealth. Once the two men learn about King’s and Queen’s marital problems, they become determined to push one of the sisters into king’s bed. The ideal situation would be if either, Mary or Anne could give birth to the heir of the British throne. After Mary gives birth to the king’s son, her sister already made her way into king’s heart and she’s basically blackmailing him in order for him to marry her and make her his Queen. King is Henry the 8th and he starts the Church of England in order to divorce his wife and marry Anne.
If you love musicals or/and you’re fan of Abba songs, you will love this movie.
Sophie never met her father and since she’s getting married she wants her father present. She goes digging through her mother’s stuff and finds her old diary from the time Sophie was conceived. The only problem is, there are three men who might be her father so her solution is to invite them all to Greece for her wedding. The drama begins once her mother, Donna, discovers her ex lovers in the pension she owns and runs.
The most popular Abba songs are incorporated perfectly into the movie and the actors are singing them themselves so the original songs are not just added while editing.
Walking On Sunshine
Once again a musical but this time, no Abba but some of the greatest songs ever, recorded in the 80’s.
Taylor sent her sister Maddie to Puglia, Italy for men detox but her plan didn’t really work since Maddie is now getting married. To complicate the story even more Taylor has already met Maddie’s new gang and her fiancé, three years ago when she, herself visited Puglia. Rafa is the man Maddie is marrying but also the only man Taylor has ever fallen in love with. Taylor is trying to hide that fact from her sister because she doesn’t want to ruin her happiness but for that add, Maddie’s on-again-off-again ex to the story and you get a hilarious story with a lot of great songs.
The Wolf Of The Wall Street
To this day, I still haven’t forgave Hollywood for not giving Leo the oscar for this movie and this part and I’m not saying that just because he’s Leo.
Jordan Belfort comes to Wall Street as a new broker with a dream of making it big. Once the stock market crashes and he loses his job, he finds a company that sells ‘penny’ stocks that make you much more money than the regular stock. Since he’s a trained broker, it doesn’t take him a lot of time to earn a lot of money and open up his own business firm.
