It seems that the best shared experience that can be fun for the whole family is watching movies. As a result, we introduce 5 new films that can be attractive for different tastes. For those who enjoy serious drama about the awards season, for those who like to watch a movie full of movie stars, or for those who like to combine different genres into one movie, they are looking for an interesting filming experience.

This is a list of 5 films that can be recommended to watch.
1) Last night in Soho
Director </:> Edgar Wright
Actors : Tomasin Mackenzie, Anya Taylor Joy
Metacritic Score: 65 out of 100
"Last night in Soho" is unlike any other movie. However, it follows the rules of different genres, especially horror and slasher. This movement between different genres is a feature of Edgar Wright's work, which reached a climax in "Last night at Soho" in terms of form and aesthetics, which delights its audience. The important point of "Last night in Soho" is that, unlike many films of these years, it does not leave its audience in an irrational and storyless manner.
The enthusiasm of a young girl who has just set foot in London (played well by Thomasine Mackenzie) over all the details of that decade. The first half of the film is a psychological drama about a girl who comes to London from a small town to pursue her and her mother's dream, who lost her childhood, and read fashion. The first third of the film If you are unfamiliar with Edgar Wright, do you think this is a drama about puberty? Let go, but as time passes, the film enters a strange and eerie atmosphere. Until the girl in our story can not stand the dormitory and takes refuge in an old London house. From the same houses that are reminiscent of the 60s. And on his first night at home, he has a dream as soon as he falls asleep. A girl like him who came to London in the 60's to succeed. At first, Sandy (played by Anya Taylor Joy) seems to be Ellie's twin. Sometimes even Ellie's identification with a document is such that anything happens to her as if Ellie herself had experienced it. The film shocks the viewer halfway through, and the story of Ellie and Cindy finds the elements of a horror film to the point where we have a sequence that is entirely from the Essler genre. The mysterious story eventually turns into a real nightmare.
"Last night in Soho" is a fun, beautiful, and intriguing film for fans of the genre game.
2) Belfast )
Director : Kenneth Branagh
: Jude Hill, Catherine Belfi, Jimmy Dornan, Judy Dench
Metacritic Score: 82 out of 100
Alfonso Cuarn became the director in the 21st century Who made films about their childhood. Before him, Fellini had references to his childhood in his films. Pedro Almadovar flashed flashbacks to his childhood in "Suffering and Pride," and now Kenneth Branagh is portraying us in the same black-and-white Cuarn atmosphere from his childhood in Northern Ireland in 1969. When Protestant rebel groups invaded Catholic neighborhoods. The Buddy family (actually a child) was Protestant, but his father refused to cooperate with the rebels, and they had good relations with their Catholic neighbors. "Belfast" did not use black and white uniformly like "Roma". The world inside the movies and the world outside Belfast are colored. In fact, this contrast shows that on the borders of Belfast, the dreams of the inhabitants are fading. So much so that they are forced to emigrate.
The film deals with the notion of family among Irish people, as well as the sense and decision to emigrate, as much as it shows the inflammatory situation in Ireland that year. This is Kenneth Branagh's most personal film, a feast of photography and music with very good acting. A film that may not be a great work, but it is pleasant.
The most important thing about Belfast is the warmth and intimacy that it has. The scenes between mother and child work very well, and in general mother and grandparents and "grandfathers" can be placed among the best parents portrayed in the cinema.
3) Do not look up ( Don't look up)
Director : Adam McKee
> Actors : Timothy Shalameh, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance
Metacritic Score : -
A film that has not been seen yet and no one has written anything about it and has just been released, but it is one of the most stellar films of the year and that makes it curious. you will not find this combination of great actors together in any other film this year. After all, Adam McKay is a curious director. His first film, The Great Depression, was a different but mainstream film about the stock market crash of 2007. His previous film, Vice President, about the life of Dick Cheney, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
"Don't Look Up" is a satirical black science fiction comedy. The story of two astronauts who, because they are not first class, is not handed over to anyone while they want to warn about the impact of a comet on Earth, which will destroy the Earth and humanity. The Macy's movie has a limited release in cinemas and will be streamed on Netflix. The film was selected by the National Critics Association as one of the top ten films of the year. This film is one of the first productions of a film and series production company founded by Adam Makki himself. It took Leonardo DiCaprio 4 or 5 months to convince him to star in the film, and they revisited the script together many times, but the role of the female astronaut was written for Jennifer Lawrence from the beginning.
The film is one of those works that It can be recommended because of the cast and the director's background.

5) Drive my car
Director : Ryosuku Hamaguchi
Actors : Hidtoshi Nishijima
Metacritic Score: 89 out of 100
One of the possible rivals of Farhadi's "Hero" is the Japanese film "Drive My Car", which also competed with Farhadi at the Cannes Film Festival. "Drive My Car" won Best Picture by the new York Critics Circle and won both Best Screenplay and Pfeiffer Award at the Cannes Film Festival. The film has an intellectual atmosphere and is an adaptation of one of Haruki Murakami's short stories. The story of a theatrical actor who became famous for his leading role in Chekhov's play "Uncle Vanya" and his wife also wrote screenplays for TV series. They have a love life and a good job until the man realizes that the woman is cheating on one of the TV actors. He dies before his wife confesses, and a few years later the man travels to a small town to direct "Uncle Vanya." The man's relationship with his car and driving has always been interesting. He used to listen to his wife's recorded voice while singing "Uncle Vanya" while driving. Driving is important to him, but in this new city there is a law that strangers must have a driver. A young woman is chosen as the male driver, whom she does not trust at first, but they gradually come to a common understanding with each other.
The film has a poetic tone and beautiful sequences. Of course, you have to be patient because the rhythm is slow and it is about 3 hours at the same time of the movie, but the narration of the movie, especially up to the last third, is so smooth that its length does not bother you. Movie games may seem strange to you because in modern Japanese cinema, actors are not supposed to express much emotion. The faces and expressions are flat, and interestingly, the male director asks the actors in "Uncle Vanya" to read their roles without exaggeration. "Drive My Car" is mixed with the play "Uncle Vanya" similar to what Asghar Farhadi did with "The Salesman" and the play by Arthur Miller, but here the role of theater is more prominent.
