5. Toy Story
The first Toy Story movie is about toys coming to life and heading on adventures. It is definitely one of the best and most popular animated movies of all time out there, and if you are going to watch it for the first time or a millionth time like us, it is going to make you happy, warm, and cheerful.
The lovely team of Woody and Buzz Lightyear, voiced by Tom Hanks and Tim Allen respectively, is what really makes this film really unique. As well as the song You have got a pal in me, which we highly recommend to sing together with your buddy.
Yeah, and if you are curious, all four of the Toy Story movies are available for streaming. It is just going to take you 6 hours and 19 minutes to see them all.
Superheroes used to be solid characters back in the day, tackle violence, and keep it honourable. Deadpool, on the other hand, has an unhealthy taste for chopping off limbs coupled with a mouth as dirty as a toilet.
A superhero movie that enrages the genre and demonstrates the unseen side of the war against crime. Just like a series of R-rated films that we love Deadpool suits us because of the popularity of this leather-clad anti-hero.
7. Jojo Rabbit
Jojo Rabbit is an amazing comedy-drama film from 2019, directed by Taika Waititi on the premise of Caging Skies, a 2008 novel by Christine Leunens.
