Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller

Needing a big movie filled with the brim with top talent? This mystery thriller certainly fills that gap.

Set during the Cold War, we follow a man who has come out of retirement to uncover a Soviet spy working in the British MI6.

It’s a superb drama that features a mesmerizing performance from Gary Oldman in particular. It’s got solid reviews across the board. Don’t miss this!


All I Wish (2017)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Susan Walter
Cast: Sharon Stone, Tony Goldwyn, Ellen Burstyn, Liza Lapira
Runtime: 94 min

This movie is one for those looking to lose yourself in a good romantic movie (the next pick on the list doesn’t count!).

The solid movie is about a fashion designer who is trying to slow life down and find a relationship.


Some Kind of Beautiful (2014)

Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Tom Vaughan
Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek, Jessica Alba, Malcolm McDowell
Runtime: 99 min

Sometimes, perhaps now more than ever, we need to relax and watch something that doesn’t make too much sense but is enjoyable all the same.

That’s why our final recommendation of the week is the romantic comedy Some Kind of Beautiful. It features some top talent who brilliantly goes to waste in a movie that only scored 6% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie is about a poetry professor who reevaluates his love life after impregnating someone then falling in love with her sister.
