1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
James Gunn’s cherished MCU trilogy comes to an emotional conclusion in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is in complete shock over Gamora’s death as the story opens following the events of Avengers: Endgame. However, the galaxy isn’t saving itself because Adam (Will Poulter) seems to be causing problems for this group of jerks by putting one of them in grave danger.
They must locate a genetic passcode, which will take the group throughout the galaxy, to save Rocket (Bradley Cooper). This film, which also serves as Gunn’s departure from Marvel for his next DC adventures, has a sense of closure, but it’s also filled with a lot of humor and lightheartedness. Though GOTG 3 offers some of the most heartbreaking scenes in the MCU to date, it’s the emotion that works best.
2. Turning Red
The story of Turning Red centers on 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian Mei, who is voiced by Rosalie Chiang, as she grows up in Toronto in the early 2000s. So far, so typical; but, when she becomes stressed or enthusiastic, she transforms into a gigantic red panda.
Mei’s favorite boy band’s concert coincides with the one occasion the ritual can be carried out, which turns out to be a family curse that impacts the women in her line of descent. Nevertheless, there is a solution to break the curse. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan from Never Have I Ever and Sandra Oh is featured in the voice cast of the film.
Since Hamilton smashed records with 16 Tony nominations (11 of which it won), a Grammy victory, and a Pulitzer Prize, we’re sure you don’t need us to remind you of the excitement around it. When Lin Manuel Miranda‘s hip-hop musical made its Broadway premiere in 2015, it won over hearts everywhere. The ensemble was even invited to the White House to play for Barack Obama.
Disney Plus has offered us the best of the best with a professionally recorded video of the original Broadway play. The theater industry has been investigating ways to make events more accessible due to the widespread shutdown.
4. The Lion King
Disney’s Lion King is widely regarded as its crown gem, and it makes sense. Everything about it seems so monumental: the enormity of the stampede scene, James Earl Jones’ solemn voice, the “Circle of Life,” and the lofty concepts of sacrifice and legacy. Thankfully, Timon and Pumbaa intervene just as things are about to become too gloomy.
From the wide plains to the erupting green lava of Scar’s lair, this epic tale is shown on such a magnificent canvas. A whole generation of people who enjoy hoisting their pets into the air and flaunting them like Rafiki showcasing newborn Simba were also born out of it. It’s surprising how Shakespearean lions can become.
5. The Toy Story trilogy
Without delay, Pixar established a reputation for being a studio driven by audacious ideas. The notion that your toys are living things that scamper around your room when you’re not looking is revived in their very first film, Toy Story. It was oddly adorable rather than giving youngsters nightmares. The studio persisted in its efforts until Toy Story 3, where Woody and Buzz Lightyear are forced to face their mortality after being tossed into a rubbish incinerator. Some sick geniuses are at work here.
Toy Story effectively created the brand names that have turned Pixar into a major player in the animation industry from the very beginning. Adults can read over and analyze its unique premise and moral and intellectual foundations endlessly.
6. Sister Act
After being present for a mob hit, lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier is placed under witness protection. Where her adversaries would least expect to look? She serves as the choir director at the convent Saint Katherine’s Parish in San Francisco on a volunteer basis. Deloris first has disagreements with the Reverend Mother because she wants to stick to gospel and rock music instead of traditional hymns. Naturally, the two had grown to respect one another by the time things were finished.
This performance by Whoopi Goldberg is at the pinnacle of her ability to be cut without becoming insensitive. She sings amazingly, too. It’s difficult to be critical of the movie because it’s so uplifting and emotionally appealing, especially when the nuns begin to perform covers of ’60s hits like “I Will Follow Him” and “My Guy” (which they later change to “My God”).
7. Hocus Pocus
It can be all too easy to forget that the Sanderson sisters are supposed to be the evil characters in Hocus Pocus, killing children. The three begin to wreak havoc in the town after young Max unintentionally brings them back to life in modern-day Salem. If they’re not stopped, they’ll drain every youngster for kilometers to preserve their youth and energy.
Despite its initial lack of popularity, particularly among critics, Hocus Pocus has gradually gained recognition and evolved into a seasonal custom.
8. The Star Wars Trilogy
A country lad, a rascal, and a princess are the straightforward trio of characters in The Star Wars Trilogy who ignited one of the greatest cultural phenomena in history. Every individual discovered a unique method to turn the tide. That can mean suffocating a gigantic slug kingpin with your bare hands at times, or it can mean enrolling in Jedi training and realizing your dad is the last person you would want them to be. Sometimes it involves sacrificing yourself to become a giant ice cube to pay off your obligations.
These films have created a fantastical world so intricate and nuanced that there’s always a chance you won’t want to leave. Before you know it, three hours have passed and you are thoroughly studying the real origins of Droopy McCool, the chindinkalu flute musician.
9. Pirates of the Caribbean
The franchise mostly follows the exploits of renegade pirate Jack Sparrow as he encounters his rebellious former first mate Barbossa, the fiercely independent Elizabeth Swann, and her uninteresting but ultimately endearing love interest Will Turner. Curses, krakens, maelstroms, British imperialism, and a tentacle-faced Davy Jones are just a few more things to keep things interesting.
People tend to argue slightly about how superior Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End are to the original movie (come on, though, who could resist watching a massive Naomie Harris explode into a thousand tiny crabs?). It’s nice that it’s so strange.
Essentially a collection of short films paired with classical music, the movie explores a wide range of fantastical worlds, including the vibrant realm of centaurs and fauns, the end of the dinosaur era, and the terrifying rule of the monster Chernabog. The most well-known scene is an eager Mickey inadvertently calling forth an unstoppable army of mops to the tune of Paul Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Among all of Disney’s animated filmography, Fantasia is perhaps the most distinctive and creatively ambitious offering. It is unlike anything other. It breezes through the classic greats with a feeling of wit and sophistication instead of being obsessed with talking down to or attempting to pet kids.
