Michael C. Hall effortlessly plays Dexter Morgan, a serial killer specifically targeting other serial killers while also serving as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department. Surrounded by a fantastic cast, Hall breathes life into one of television’s most intriguing characters as the show explores our dark passengers while perfectly balancing the dark humor with its heavier subjects.

While we are still an unfamiliar route from the live-action iteration led by John Cho, there is literally never a bad time to step into the blues and jazz science fiction world of Keiko Nobumoto-authored anime cowboy Immerse Bebop.

She balances every note with precision, delivering some of the most intriguing and perfect adventures with great animation that is still stunning 23 years later and one of the best soundtracks and theme songs of anything.

Starring Ethan Hawke and the late Robin Williams, the film tells the story of a group of young men in an elite preparatory school. They secretly started their own poetry club called the Dead Poets Society after taking inspiration from their new English teacher, John Keating. Through Keating’s eccentric teaching methods, he was able to encourage her to make her life worth living without adhering to social norms. However, it is always easier said than done as the youngsters will soon realize how difficult it is to really take advantage of the day when outside forces always tend to suppress their views and dreams.

This 1989 coming of age drama is hands down one of the best in its genre as it brilliantly delivers an relatable and charming storyline that will somehow break your heart. In addition to the Oscar-winning script, the film mainly featured one of Williams’ most memorable performances, as well as a preview of the immense talent of then-rising star Ethan Hawke. If you are a fan of the coming-of-age genre like me, I highly recommend that you try this classic gem or visit again.

Is Black Hawk Down the greatest war movie ever made? This is controversial, but few films have captured the chaos and violence of combat as effectively as Ridley Scott’s powerful 2001 drama. Black Hawk Down is exquisitely filmed and features a handful of great performances by Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Eric Bana and Sam Shepard. It’s as hostile to war as a movie can get, but it’s also a powerful tribute to all of the brave soldiers who give their lives for each other and their country when service calls. Plus, Hans Zimmer’s score is fantastic.

Side note: It’s pretty amazing that Ridley Scott didn’t get an Oscar for his work here. The man lost to Ron Howard for A Beautiful Mind, which, I can only guess, happened because voters were split over Scott, Peter Jackson (for Lord of the Rings) and David Lynch (Mulholland Drive). What a debacle, but that’s a damn good pool of directors too!
