Movies to Watch


The year of 2023 has provided future classics such as Barbie, Oppenheimer, and Spiderman: Across the Spider-Verse. More movies are set to release that are competing to level with recent hits regarding the box office. The movies listed here include a wide variety of genres that you may take interest in. (Keep in mind that some of these titles are rated R, so you’ll need parental permission if you’re under 18.) Look through the list and find out which movies you’d like to watch.

The Creator


I hope the plot focuses on the psychological mind game of A.I taking human form because that will create questions regarding morals. Although the concept of “A.I at war with humans” seems basic, the movie looks promising in terms of providing an entertaining story. Critics definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies such as The Matrix, 12 Monkeys, and The Terminator.

“As a future war between the human race and artificial intelligence rages on, ex-special forces agent Joshua is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI. The Creator has developed a mysterious weapon that has the power to end the war and all of mankind. As Joshua and his team of elite operatives venture into enemy-occupied territory, they soon discover the world-ending weapon is actually an AI in the form of a young child.”  (Source)


 Saw X


The previous Saw movies were extremely gory but entertaining since it provides an immense amount of suspense. The trailer follows the same pattern and still gives me the creeps. The series has reached the point where one bad movie can ruin its reputation, so it’s a “hit or miss” movie. If you’re not comfortable watching gore or any sort of violence, I do not recommend this movie. I do, however, recommend this movie to those who’ve watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), and any of the movies that are part of the Jigsaw series.

“Hoping for a miraculous cure, John Kramer travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure, only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer uses deranged and ingenious traps to turn the tables on the con artists.”  (Source)


The Exorcist: Believer 

Universal Studios

The trailer creeps me out, so I am watching this in broad daylight. The trailer seems very promising in terms of being an effective horror movie. The fact that it’s children who are possessed makes it ten times more concerning because they alone are unpredictable. If you enjoy movies such as The Nun, The Conjuring and Paranormal Activity then I recommend this movie because it will without a doubt leave you with paranoia. (Off topic but The Fourth Kind relates to human possession and is a great sci-fi/suspenseful movie to watch.)

“When his daughter, Angela, and her friend Katherine, show signs of demonic possession, it unleashes a chain of events that forces single father Victor Fielding to confront the nadir of evil. Terrified and desperate, he seeks out Chris MacNeil, the only person alive who’s witnessed anything like it before.”  (Source)



Pantelion Films

Eugeio Derbez is starring in the movie so it will make you cry in some way. He only stars in comedies or heartfelt dramas (Bajo La Misma Luna and Instructions Not Included are two that are guaranteed to make you cry). The story will be uplifting, especially since it’s based on a true story. Any movie based on a true story will be a great movie because nothing compares to reality illustrated through art. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies such as Critical Thinking, Mcfarland USA, Queen Of Katwe and  The Way Back.

Release Date: Out now!

“A teacher in a Mexican border town full of neglect, corruption, and violence, tries a radical new method to unlock their students’ curiosity, potential – and maybe even their genius.”  (Source)


Killers of the Flower Moon 

Apple Studios

The cast contains iconic actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro and is directed by none other than Martin Scorsese (Director of The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed and Shutter Island). The movie is guaranteed to become a classic and will likely win many awards. This is one of the movies I’m most looking forward to since it’s based on historical events. I recommend this movie to those who’ve watched The HighwayMen and Judas and the Black Messiah.

“In the 1920s, members of the Osage Native American tribe of Osage County, Oklahoma, are murdered after oil is found on their land, and the FBI decides to investigate.”  (Source)



Five Nights at Freddy’s

Universal Studios

The movie is based on the FNAF franchise that consists of books and video games. Most non-animated movies based on video games don’t meet the expectations of the fandom and typically disappoint them (An example would be Assassin’s Creed). The media and the FNAF fandom has, however, shown immense excitement towards the movie’s release.

“A troubled security guard begins working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. While spending his first night on the job, he realizes the late shift at Freddy’s won’t be so easy to make it through.”  (Source)




The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes


The Hunger Games series holds a reputation for providing entertaining, intense, drama filled movies. The trailer captures my attention; however, I don’t believe it will reach my expectations. The previous Hunger Games movie has set the bar high so it will be interesting to see how the public critiques the movie. I recommend watching all the Hunger Games movies, which are incredibly entertaining (or you can also read all the books instead).

Release Date: November 17, 2023 

“Years before he becomes the tyrannical president of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow remains the last hope for his fading lineage. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow becomes alarmed when he’s assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird from District 12. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and political savvy, they race against time to ultimately reveal who’s a songbird and who’s a snake.”  (Source)



Warner Bros. Studio

Wonka targets younger audiences who enjoy silly movies. The media has already ridiculed Timothee Chalamet’s acting in the trailer and negative press is trending on platforms such as TikTok. The teasing may foreshadow the public’s future criticism of the movie when it releases.

 Release Date: December 15, 2023

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Warner Bros. Studios

Similar to many recent superhero movies, the special effects don’t look impressive. As of late, superhero movies haven’t been doing great in the box office compared to past years. They’re not doing horrible, but they’re not breaking records as they used to. The plot doesn’t seem to be any different from your typical superhero movie, so I’m not exactly excited for this movie to be released. I believe it will be fairly entertaining but nothing out of the ordinary.

Release Date: December 20, 2023 

“After failing to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta wields the power of the mythic Black Trident to unleash an ancient and malevolent force. Hoping to end his reign of terror, Aquaman forges an unlikely alliance with his brother, Orm, the former king of Atlantis. Setting aside their differences, they join forces to protect their kingdom and save the world from irreversible destruction.”  (Source)




The teaser gets me excited for the film to release since the visuals are already aesthetically pleasing. Adam Driver is an excellent actor, so there is no doubt that he will provide an outstanding performance. I recommend this movie to those who enjoyed Ford v Ferrari and House of Gucci.

Release Date: December 25, 2023

  • “A biopic of automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari, whose family redefined the idea of the high-powered Italian sports car and practically spawned the concept of Formula One racing.”  (Source)

Bob Marley: One Love 


Bob Marley is an iconic figure in music and general history, so I hope the movie is able to provide an accurate illustration of his life. The trailer captures my attention since the movie will showcase Bob Marley’s musical career and the social challenges he endured throughout his journey. I’m also looking forward to this movie’s release since it’s music-related. I recommend this movie to those who enjoyed Elvis, A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody

  • “Jamaican singer-songwriter Bob Marley overcomes adversity to become the most famous reggae musician in the world.”  (Source)


Dune: Part Two 

Warner Bros. Pictures (Alon_Amir)

The trailer is amazing and is convincing me to watch it in theaters. The first movie was spectacular, but I will admit it took me two watches to comprehend the plot. The movie is based on a book (I’m yet to read the book), but, as a movie lover, Dune holds high expectations in terms of acting performances and impressive special effects. I recommend this movie to those who enjoyed Tenet, Elysium, Blade Runner and Reminiscence

Trailer Link: Dune: Part Two | Official Trailer 

Release Date: March 15, 2024 

  • “Paul Atreides unites with Chani and the Fremen while seeking revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the universe, he must prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.”  (Source)
