10 Cloverfield Lane
After getting in a car accident, a woman wakes up to find herself locked in a frighteningly strange basement with two men who claim the outside world is uninhabitable.
10 Cloverfield Lane is a very suspenseful movie that caused me to be on the edge of my seat the entire time.
I also kept guessing about what was happening outside of the basement. The movie was directed by Dan Trachtenberg, who directed “Black Mirror”.
Here is how to access Paramount+ to watch the best thrilling movies and TV shows in Canada, including 10 Cloverfield Lane.
Mission Impossible Rogue Nation
Ethan Hunt and his team must outrun the CIA and gain their trust as they attempt to stop an organization called “The Syndicate” from destroying the world as we know it.
It’s a little bit of a twist on the traditional Mission Impossible movies and it takes place more in the real world. An extra bonus to this movie is that there are more great female characters in the film.
When Earth’s crops abruptly die out, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), an engineer who once piloted a spacecraft is able to use a secret portal with his daughter’s help in order to travel in time in an attempt to save humanity.
Interstellar is definitely one of the most thrilling movies on Paramount+. It’s a complex movie with a lot of great visuals that will keep you entertained the entire time.
The story is also very interesting and will keep you guessing until the end. I would definitely recommend watching this movie if you’re looking for a good thriller.
Saving Private Ryan
Saving Private Ryan is a 1998 American war film. The film is set in 1944 during the Allied invasion of Normandy in World War II. It depicts US Army Rangers executing a mission to rescue US POWs from becoming Nazi prisoners.
The movie was produced by Steven Spielberg and also stars Tom Hanks, which are both very famous actors. Saving Private Ryan is an amazing movie for people who are interested in the history of WWII.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
It’s been three years since Ethan Hunt had proven that he still has what it takes to stop criminals with his team at the CIA, but they have all become outcasts even among their own government. The IMF team joins together again when one of the most dangerous terrorist organizations in the world gets their hands on a mysterious weapon that can bring about an end to all of civilization itself.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is one of the most popular movies in the Mission Impossible movie series. It has some great action scenes and also introduces amazing new characters into this franchise.
After crash landing on Earth in 1987, a lone Autobot called B-127 must hide from the government agency known as Sector 7.
When another threat is unleashed to the world, B-127 and young girl Charlie will need to fight against this new enemy with the help of some people who want to help them protect everyone that they care about. Bumblebee is one of the more recent movies and it’s also a spin-off from the main Transformers series.
The movie stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. Bumblebee was directed by Travis Knight who previously worked with Laika. He’s an award-winning director and animator known for his work on Kubo and the Two Strings, ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence
A.I. Artificial Intelligence is the most futuristic film on Paramount+. It’s set in the future and features some of the most advanced technology that we can imagine.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence stars Haley Joel Osment who plays a robot programmed to love, hate and feel emotions just like any other human being.
The movie was directed by Steven Spielberg, who has made many great films including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and E.T. It also stars Jude Law as the universal architect of this world where humans are extinct, Earth is uninhabitable and all robots are trying to live without each other.
The Elephant Man
The Elephant Man is a 1980 American historical drama based on the true story of John Merrick. It’s about a doctor’s 19th-century medical study of John Merrick, who has an extreme case of craniodiaphyseal dysplasia, which has not been documented in medical literature.
The film stars Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Frederick Treves and John Hurt as John Merrick. Both actors won Academy Awards for this film. This movie was made by David Lynch who is well known for making Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive.
Both are great films that have stayed in my mind all these years later. David Lynch also has a way with making horror movies that keep you guessing throughout the entire movie.
Dragon Lord is a 1982 Hong Kong action comedy film directed by Jackie Chan and featuring an all-star cast. The film tells the story of a young man who must stop a villainous warlord from obtaining a magical sword. Along the way, he assembles a team of martial arts experts to help him fight the warlord and his forces.
The movie was produced by Raymond Chow and features many well-known actors and actresses, including Chan himself, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin, Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung. Dragon Lord was a major success in Asia and helped to establish Chan as one of the biggest stars in Hong Kong cinema.
