A fun adventure for both children and adults. This is the first movie in a series based on the famous Harry Potter books.

Although parts from the book are left out in the movie, all the main parts are there.

Very satisfying.

Galaxy QuestAliens come to earth looking for heroes to save them from their enemy. The problem is, the people they think are heroes are just the actors in a show like Star Trek.

This movie is plenty of fun. It will be enjoyed by anyone who likes comedy.

It’s a space comedy with an original storyline, great visual effects, and is completely enjoyable.

Die Hard (1, 2, 3, 4)

(12 votes, average: 9.58 out of 10)

Die HardPure action, fun, and satisfying.
Die Hard 1 and 4 are particularly great. These are the kinds of movies you can rely on if you want a movie that is full of action. Lots of great lines, explosions, gun fights.

Lots of dead bad guys, a fair bit of blood, and swearing (that fits the situation, not just swearing to make it over the top).
Not suitable for kids, but teens and adults will enjoy.
