Get all the fun you want from the comfort of your own home.
1. Everything related to Batman
HBO Max has taken over the Batman market. You can watch dozens of Batman movies, from The Dark Knight to an impressive array of animated Batman shows. Don’t miss Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker terrorizing the citizens of Gotham.
2. Mad Max: Fury Road
Director George Miller asked his wife Margaret Sixel to edit Mad Max: Fury Road so that it doesn’t look like “every other action movie we see”. It was a smart choice. Sixel received an Oscar for Best Film Editing for her efforts.
3. Suicide Squad
You couldn’t avoid the James Gunn films if you tried. Gunn starred in The Suicide Squad after he was fired from Marvel Studios. Suicide Squad has become the most-watched DC Extended Universe (DCEU) movie on HBO Max, so if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re better off.
4. Ocean Movies
Warner Bros. I liked Ocean’s Eleven so much that Steven Soderbergh again directed Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen. All three are available on HBO Max as examples of Hollywood’s obsession with George Clooney, Matt Damon, and heist movies.
5. Inside Man
Speaking of heists, Spike Lee’s The Inner Man gives viewers the joy of watching Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, and Christopher Plummer in some of their best performances.
6. The Shining
The Shining is one of the few examples of a movie that is arguably better than a book. Stanley Kubrick’s take on Stephen King’s novel featuring Jack Nicholson as he transforms from a loving father into a mad force of evil.
7. Wonder Woman
Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman in this 2017 reboot of the beloved TV show. Diana, Princess of the Amazons, a young woman raised on an isolated island, discovers her powers and meets her destiny. This remake is not as bad as it looks.
Science meets fiction in these mind-blowing films.
8. The Matrix series
Before you see The Matrix Resurrection in theaters, brush up on the first three Wachowskis. Enjoy playing Keanu Reeves as Neo from those distant times when no one knew the difference between red and blue pills.
9. 2001: A Space Odyssey
You’ll be thinking about Christopher Nolan’s Inception even after you’ve finished watching it. The famous names of Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy make the film easy to watch, but what really makes it great is the story and the visuals.
The year is 2077, and the Earth is uninhabited, devastated by aliens who forced humanity to move to Titan, Saturn’s moon. Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a repairman sent to Earth to maintain drones that are fighting aliens that have taken over our planet.
Immerse yourself in another world.
12. Harry Potter
The Harry Potter movies are the perfect antidote to the winter blues, and you can watch them all on HBO Max.
13. Lord of the Rings
Peter Jackson’s Great Power Trilogy is a long walk.
They won’t win any awards, but romantic comedies can cure your ailments.
14. Crazy Rich Asians
Rachel is surprised to discover that her boyfriend is very rich and one of Singapore’s eligible bachelors. What will she do?
15. Kate and Leopold
Who can resist a time travel story in which His Grace, the 3rd Duke of Albany travels to present-day New York and falls in love with Meg Ryan? Not us.
Jane Austen’s classic Emma has received a modern update. Alicia Silverstone plays Cher Horowitz, a high school student who uses her popularity for good to spark the new Tai girl.
If your real world isn’t crowded enough, immerse yourself in one of these dramas on HBO Max.
17. News of the World
While “graying Civil War veteran” isn’t the first thing we think of when we think of Tom Hanks, he’s simply superb in this role. Hanks plays Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a man who is trying to return a young girl, taken and raised by the Kiowa Indian tribe, to her last remaining family.
18. Citizen Kane
Listen to us. There’s a reason Citizen Kane sits at the top of every American and British list of the best films of the 20th century and has been nominated for several Academy Awards. Orson Welles wrote and starred in this film about a media mogul-turned-politician. It still serves as a warning about people with great power.
19. Thelma and Louise
Directed by Ridley Scott, Thelma & Louise follows best friends on a journey that turns into a crime spree. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon star, and Brad Pitt are best known for this excellent film.
20. Blood Simple
We’ll be watching something starring Frances McDormand. Blood Simple is the first film directed by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen. It’s a noir crime film that sometimes feels like a low-budget horror film, and we mean it at its best.
Martin Scorsese will never stop writing about professional criminals and police agents.
HBO Max can’t match Disney+ in the cartoons and animations category, but some of them are still worth watching.
22. Spirited Away
Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli made a movie that 95% of the people who watch it, love.
23. Ron was wrong
The voice talent in this animated film is truly impressive. The film features the voices of Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Olivia Colman, and more. Barney Ron’s robot starts to malfunction on the most amusing occasions.
Some people love them; some people hate them. If you fall into the first category, HBO Max has a couple you’ll want to watch.
24. Singing in the Rain
The film is considered by some to be the best musical film ever made. It’s worth watching just to see Kelly perform the title song with a 103Â°F fever. They don’t make them look like Gene Kelly anymore.
25. On the heights
Before Hamilton came to In the Heights. Lin-Manuel Miranda helped bring this musical to Broadway success and then worked with director John M. Chu to bring it to the big screen in 2021. Ironically, the pandemic hit it, so it had a limited theatrical release and was instead available on HBO. Max, where else can you find him.
