13 GREAT movies to watch on Star+



Continuing our special of the 13 film nominations available for streaming, let’s now mention some Star+ productions. When Disney+ arrived in Brazil, everyone wanted to know when Casa do Mickey would add major Fox titles or let’s say more “adult” works.

Star+, therefore, which today has just over 900 films available in its catalog, has come to fill this gap. Among the great releases available, Oscar-winning or classic films, we list titles that are very popular, but which many people do not even realize are available on this platform.

Don’t forget to comment if you’ve seen them all and if there are any others that are so good on Star+ that they deserve a spot on a second future list. And stay tuned, there will be many more tips from other streams, in case you are more interested in this series. Let’s go to the list!

Bumblebee (2018)

Enjoy watching:

When they announced ‘Bumblebee’, the spin-off of the already worn-out ‘Transformers’ franchise, a glimmer of hope was kindled as to how this new title would approach – even if it was based on the universe already undertaken. Thankfully, director Travis Knight breathed new life into the series, delivering a lighter adventure influenced by Spielberg’s works, like “ET – The Extra-Terrestrial.” Protagonist Hailee Steinfeld also gave another dynamism and a more organic tone to the plot in question, which has heroes and villains, but is functional and captivating. The so-called ‘Transformers’ of good.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout Effect (2018)

The latest film to be released in Tom Cruise’s golden goose cine-series, ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout Effect’, has doubled the number of action scenes, and not only that, they have become even more bold and crazy. The arrival of Henry Cavill as a relentless henchman gave the franchise a 007 look, which had already flirted with it when it joined The Syndicate organization – much like Specter in the James Bond films. What we have is a crazy story where what matters at the end of the day are the perfectly orchestrated wild plans of Cruise and filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie.

The Suspects (2013)

Even though he was nominated for an Oscar for the Canadian film ‘The Fires’, Denis Villeneuve exploded in Hollywood with the sensational thriller ‘The Usual Suspects’, which was a mix of two films by David Fincher himself, ‘ Zodiac’ and ‘Seven’. Villeneuve, however, in addition to bringing a more desperate and somewhat brutal situation, left behind a very interesting concept of labyrinths, where all the characters of the feature film sought to follow paths of which they had no idea, especially with regard to their own mind. . The casting is then spectacular, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman and Paul Dano in visceral roles.

The Social Network (2010)

“The Social Network” definitely marked the change in style of the great filmmaker David Fincher, who has always relied on thriller and thrilling language for a more analytical bias and a chilling aesthetic. Something that would escalate in the ‘House of Cards’ series, and fit like a glove to tell the special story that was the creation of Facebook. The sparse script created by Aaron Sorkin was instrumental in creating Mark Zuckerberg’s character, played masterfully by Jesse Eisenberg, who looks like a dialogue machine gun. The whole atmosphere, thrilling plot, and huge cast of characters make “The Social Network” one of David Fincher’s great films, and that’s no small feat.

Missing Girl (2014)

David Fincher decided this time to combine a bit of his two styles, he brought his investigative and curious touch and added it to the colder and more analytical touch of recent works. ‘Gone Girl’ is the adaptation of the well-known book by Gillian Flynn, about lies and appearances, with dubious characters and full of moments that lead the viewer to build a perspective that has little to do with the truth that will be revealed. Rosamund Pike has become even more challenged and considered one of the most promising actresses today because, in fact, her character is absurdly creepy.

Deadpool 2 (2015)

After the sensational first “Deadpool”, Ryan Reynolds returned with more characters, like Cable and Domino, and lots of madness in the equally hilarious and anarchic sequel simply called “Deadpool 2”. It’s everything you’d expect from a sequel, because it’s even better than the original. It’s a movie that prides itself on speaking to a geeky universe, but here in the Deadpool universe, being a nerd means something much larger, reaching out to the LGBTQ universe, empowering all of the “rejected” segments of the universe. industry, while being witty, respectful and very scrotal.

Logan (2017)

Hugh Jackman’s (?) farewell as Wolverine, or rather Logan, was one of the most sensational things ever produced in the comic book-based film subgenre. Utilizing all of the emotional and narrative baggage the character has carried over multiple X-Men movies and solos, director James Mangold delivers a film that is actually an exquisite, visceral, and emotional character study. Capable of making the toughest fan cry. In fact, the film is just there to break the standards of a macho like Logan, who has always walked the world alone for several decades, but whose heart is tamed by the arrival of his “younger female version”.

To run! (2017)

No wonder ‘Run!’ is considered one of the great films of recent times, as it brings a fierce critique to white liberalism that sees itself as empathetic to black people, but on the condition that it does not undermine white control. Peele is not addressing neo-Nazis or people who curse black people. It would be a lost cause. A satire that’s a masterful exercise in tension, unafraid to reveal brutal violence, but always knows the right moment to shatter anxiety and dread with a perfectly executed joke. Jordan Peele managed to combine horror, fiction, comedy and break even brought the issue of race into the conversation by making a film that entertained at the same time.

Black Swan (2010)

Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder), a company principal dancer, is about to retire. The position goes to Nina (Natalie Portman), but she has serious personal problems, especially with her mother (Barbara Hershey). Under pressure from Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel), a demanding artistic director, she begins to see unfair competition from her colleagues, in particular Lilly (Mila Kunis). Amidst it all, she strives for perfection in rehearsals for the biggest challenge of her career: playing the Swan Queen in an adaptation of “Swan Lake.” In ‘Black Swan’, Darren Aronofsky combines all of these elements, creating something subversive and thought-provoking. Is everything we see in the spirit – his and hers, the character and the creator – or is it something that only exists when it is shared with us? The viewer is part of the process, and it is precisely this recognition and identification that makes this experience so powerful and meaningful.

Exterminate (2002)

Danny Boyle did an excellent job in “Extermination”, managing to transition well from tense scenes of unbridled action to ones that require greater drama. It also makes good use of the soundtrack, including moments of delightful silence. A thrilling film from start to finish, which leaves the viewer tense throughout its exposition and which, with ‘Dawn of the Dead’, put zombies back in earnest.

A Quiet Place (2018)

“A Quiet Place” shows a post-apocalyptic reality, where the population of Earth has been decimated by a terrifying entity that attacks whenever it hears the slightest sign of noise. On a farm in the United States, we follow a family from the Midwest who try to maintain total silence in order to survive the threat that haunts their home. With a scenario full of tension, the silence that for many may seem monotonous, becomes nothing less than the centerpiece that involves the whole plot and it was one of the greatest successes of the work. Everything here works. From the atmosphere to the scares, which can make you jump out of your chair, to the moments of silence brilliantly staged by the sensational cast.

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

‘Terminator’ is my favorite pop saga/franchise – at least the first two are wonderful. And seeing this Dark Fate I had similar feelings, unlike the last three. That’s because this new film functions as a celebration, a reunion, or the passing on of a legacy. It’s obvious the film lacks the sheen of ‘The Force Awakens’, even for its scale, but much like the return of ‘Star Wars’, this one recreates standout moments from the franchise. , brings back iconic characters and inserts numbers that should continue as symbols of a new generation. The plot of this “official sequel” is quite simple and easy to understand. The opposite of Genesys, which cited timelines and other nonsense. The intention here is precisely to miss the sensational Sarah Connor and see Arnold’s old T-800 in action. And in that sense it works well. Tim Miller and his writing team deliver something honest. I also liked that they talked about immigrants so vehemently.

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

‘Inglourious Basterds’ is considered by many to be Quentin Tarantino’s most mature film because, although the director brings all his signs and styles, he maintains a more restrained and elegant storytelling. Rewriting history and “revenging” millions of Nazi victims, Tarantino created a spectacular group and launched the hunt for Hitler and his minions. It brought in such wonderful characters as Brad Pitt’s hilarious Lieutenant Aldo Raine and Christoph Waltz’s brilliant Hans Landa. And what is the cinema scene being set on fire? A simply wonderful film!
