Alright yeah this one is kind of a gimme, but it is on here for a good reason.
While Season 8 left more than a little bitter taste in the mouths of fans, seasons 1 – 7 are some of the best TV seasons ever made. With phenomenal writing, a layered and complex story and fantastic characterization.
Not to mention the music, the pacing, the cinematography, the run time… Honestly Season 1 – 7 of GoT are about as perfect as any show can really get. And you’ve got plenty of time to binge it!
This movie is pretty much the perfect action movie. It has a story that’s interesting enough without being convoluted, breakneck pacing and incredible action sequences.
When I say incredible action sequences, I mean, holy hell incredible action sequences. From the opening foot race to the ending gunfight, John Wick consistently ups its own ante by providing the best action seen in filmmaking.
While this in particular is a documentary, it should not dissuade you from watching it.
Focusing on the story of soldiers during WWI, Director Peter Jackson through some technological magic brings it to life. Using old footage and restoring it through various means of color grading and re-imaging.
Seeing the War to end all Wars in color and 4K resolution is both stunning and heartbreaking. Truly like stepping back in time and witnessing the greatest generation in person.
The Outsider a little too supernatural to get your scare level up? Try the movie Prisoners if you want something much more grounded.
Focusing on the story of a father who learns that his daughter and his friend’s daughter have gone missing. We watch as he slowly descends into more and more frantic solutions, and he gets more and more obsessively violent.
It’s a disturbing look at what some people have gone through and just how far people will go for what they perceive as justified.
However, this show is not much like the movie or the comics. It’s an original story set years after the events of the movie and focuses more on social themes, racial inequalities and new characters.
If that sounds intriguing, then you’ll love this show. Watchmen is impeccably well written, paced just quick enough and full of amazing moments. Watch it with and open mind and you’ll find a new favorite Superhero show.
Much like Game of Thrones, it’s pretty near impossible to not mention this show when writing a list about HBO.
Telling the story of the 151st Airborne during the final year of the Second World War, this series packs a punch. With unparalleled attention to detail, historical accuracy and perfect performances from the whole cast.
This miniseries is poignant, incredible and dare I say, perfect.
HBO has no shortage of amazing movies, originals and series to take advantage over the Shelter in Place time. For horror fans, action fans, supernatural fans, documentary fans etc!
While there are several more options than what we have listed here, we stand by these 10 as the best! Give them a watch and let us know in the comments which ones you’ve already seen!
