Extraction (2020)

It’s tense, well paced, a solid star vehicle for Hemsworth. I personally recommend this movie as I watched and re-watched it as it contains just the right amount of genuinely exciting action you can imagine.

This trending movie is Netflix’s newly released action movie that has gone globally that a second instalment is already in the works. From first-time feature director Sam Hargrave, with Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and also Antony Russo serving as executive producers (and Joe also having written the script), Extraction stars Thor’s Chris Hemsworth and tells the story of black-market mercenary Tyler Rake, who took the contract to go to Bangladesh to rescue the kidnapped son of a prisoned drug lord.

Marriage Story (2019)

Although this is not an action movie, it is about a relationship falling apart and all the emotions that come with that. This family movie was acted by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver who played the couple and decided to get divorced in this award-winning masterpiece from writer/director Noah Baumbach and also put in some of the best performances of their career, which really deserved more award attention than they got.

The last kingdom

This is a movie is all about the desire of Alfred king of Wessex to unite England. He however is not doing it on his own, as he has the protection of a den referred to a den slayer by other dens. Ultred who wanted to be happy and to live with his children in his fathers home. I recommend you watch this movie as it will keep you going with its actions and engagement.

Okja (2017)

This is an emotional movie, its a heartwarming tale from Bong Joon-Ho.
Okja is a kind of odd story following a girl and her very close friend, a huge, weird animal called Okja. Soon the pair find themselves battling the CEO (Tilda Swinton) of a huge company who wants to take Okja away. Moreover, there’s a clear agenda underlying the story, animal activism is a strain throughout, and the film doesn’t shy away from that. Joon-Ho’s wonderfully refreshing odd style blends with slight preachy notes, but it comes together to give you a beautiful film.

The Irishman (2019)

This is a passion project long in the making, Netflix’s The Irishman sees director Martin Scorsese reunited with Robert De Niro for their ninth collaboration. However, the gangster biopic centres on Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (De Niro), who remembers his involvement in the disappearance of his longtime friend Jimmy Hoffa (played by Al Pacino). Till its release; from its CGI de-aging used on De Niro, Pacino and Joe Pesci, to the sheer unwieldy length of this epic (it’s a whopping 3 hours 30 minutes.

Controversial and divisive, Annihilation had a rocky start in life. After much effort to find a distributor, Netflix picked up the international rights to Ex_Machina director Alex Garland’s film.
