Warning: The first 2 gifs are not for the faint of heart!


1. Alien (1979)

Who doesn’t love a good sci-fi thriller and horror movie? Not me! The pacing is quite slow in this movie but the suspense, ominous atmosphere, and haunting soundtrack will keep you on your toes as Ripley navigates the dark corridors of the ship to escape the Alien (until 4/1).



2.  Aliens (1986)

The action-packed and guns-a-blazing sequel to Alien! Ripley returns to face the monster of her nightmares with the assistance of marine soldiers; however, what awaits her at the colony may be more than what she bargained for (until 4/1).



3. Mad Max Fury Road (2015)

This movie is anything but forgettable-from the desert scenery and character designs to the fight scenes and intricate set design. Set in a post-apocalyptic era, the stakes are high (until 4/1).



4. Emma (1996)

This movie adaption of Jane Austen’s novel Emma is a dramatic yet whimsical tale of matchmaking gone wrong. While not without its flaws, it leaves a warm impression (until 9/2).



5. Jumanji (1995)

A magical board game? What could go wrong or appear? Well, giant spiders for one. *shudders* Despite all the chaos in this movie which was both comical and unnerving, it was an enjoyable classic through and through (until 4/1).
