Da 5 Bloods
In this Spike Lee film, Delroy Lindo and Jonathan Majors, play a father and son duo who are haunted by the legacy of Lindo's time in the Vietnam War. It's a fresher perspective on the conflict than the films we've seen before; "Good Morning Vietnam," "Apocalypse Now," and the rest miss the devastation that the conflict inflicted on America's Black troops.
Ip Man
Donnie Yen plays the martial arts teacher that taught Bruce Lee the kung fu style known as Wing Chung. It is the first of four films that show the master’s life and takes place during the Second Sino-Japanese War when Ip Man loses everything due to the Japanese invasion.
Leon: The Professional
One of Luc Besson’s early masterpieces stars Jean Reno and Natalie Portman in her film debut. A twist on stories like “Lone Wolf and Cub,” Reno plays the titular hitman who takes on an unusual protégé in Portman’s Mathilda, it's a solidly built thriller with an unusual dynamic, well worth anyone's time.
Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja” is both an adorable animal movie and a satire that deals with themes like capitalism, environmentalism, and over-consumption. While it tries to do too much in a short amount of time, it is a well-thought-out film, but be warned the movie does not shy away from animal cruelty in order to make its point.
True Grit
The success of this Coen Brothers’ remake is that instead of imitating John Wayne’s Rooster Cogburn, it focuses on the story of young Mattie Ross who is seeking revenge for her father’s murder. “True Grit” marks the debut role of Hailee Steinfeld, and her performance outshines those of acting veterans like Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin.
