Zombieland is a funny take on the classic apocalyptic horror story, following a group of four people who rely on unusual methods to survive. The group head towards an LA amusement park that they’ve heard is zombie free – but they’ve got a lot of obstacles to overcome to get there.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Sure, the newer films in this franchise may have better VFX, but you just can’t beat the original. Jurassic Park is a wildlife sanctuary park for dinosaurs, but things soon turn completely chaotic when a security breach causes the creatures to break free and attack visitors of the island.
Quentin Tarantino has numerous film classics, and Reservoir Dogs is arguably one of the best. Six criminals who are strangers to each other come together to carry out a diamond robbery. When the police show up at the perfect time, the group begins to speculate whether one of them is a police informant.
Peacock actually has an entire section dedicated to Alfred Hitchcock films, but if you’ve not seen any them then your best bet is to start with this absolute classic. When a secretary goes on the run from an employer, they end up at the Bates Motel – run by the mysterious Norman Bates who is under the watchful eye of his controlling mother.
Brokeback Mountain was a groundbreaking film at the time it released. It tells the story of two men in the 1960’s – a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy – who fall in love and try to keep their secret bond alive in a time where their relationship would never be accepted.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Looking for a feel-good rom-com? Forgetting Sarah Marshall is the perfect noughties example. Peter is devastated when his girlfriend Sarah – a well-known actress – breaks up with him. He goes on a vacation to Hawaii, but things get complicated when Sarah travels to the same resort with her new boyfriend.
Also known for its stage-musical adaptation, Billy Elliot tells the story of a young Newcastle lad who finds solace in the art of ballet, and his struggle to overcome the negative connotations associated with male dancers. It’s also set in a working-class environment, and delves into the effects of Thatcher’s Britain on the mining industry.
Shrek is the animated classic that never gets old. The movie follows a solitary ogre who just wants to live on his swap in peace. However, to do that he must embark on a quest to rescue a princess from a tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon, with only an annoying donkey for company.
