American Psycho

What can be said that hasn't already been said about this cult classic? Directed by Mary Harron, American Psycho arguably features Christian Bale's best work. If you have not watched this film, you need to move it to the top of your list. The 2000 movie is an adaptation from the 1991 novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis.

American Psycho follows Patrick Bateman (Bale), a successful and intelligent man who lives a double life. Patrick Bateman is an investment banker in New York City who is also a serial killer by night. Unlike most movies that follow a similar premise, American Psycho is full of surprises and features an unpredictable ending. This is also such a star-studded movie! In addition to Christian Bale, the psychological thriller also stars Willem Dafoe, Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Reese Witherspoon, and others. Please note that this movie is more on the slow side than a true thriller. So don't expect too much action.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Another cult classic (because we're only listing the best of the best here) is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. For this movie, you are going to grab a box of tissues. I also recommend a bowl of ice cream. The movie, which stars Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, is a psychological drama that explores how love affects the mind and memory.

The story follows Joel Barish (Carrey) and Clementine Kruczynski (Winslet), two young adults who undergo a procedure to have their memories of each other completely erased after a painful breakup. They agree the two are toxic together and can't make things work out. In addition to brilliant performances from Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, the movie also stars the very talented Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, and Elijah Wood.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Let's now move from romantic tear-jerkers to horror. If you are a fan of the slasher-horror genre, you have likely already watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and we're talking about the original movie from 1974 that started it all. I don't know about you, but this movie spooked me for years! And even though the movie is decades old, trust me, it holds up!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) was cleverly marketed as being based on a true story (or, at least, on true events). This worked out in their favor as it helped draw a large audience to theaters. The story follows a group of friends on a road trip who come across a home where a family of cannibals live, particularly a man called Leatherface hunts and murders his victims with his weapon of choice, a chainsaw. Other than the story featuring minor true details, such as similar crimes and the murders by serial killer Ed Gein, the story is all fiction.

The Invisible Man (2020)

This movie took me by surprise, but I mean this in the best way possible. I went in with low expectations and came out with The Invisible Man on my list of favorites. The story is a sci-fi horror adventure based on H. G. Wells' novel of the same name. It is also a reboot of the 1933 film that was also created based on the novel. At the center of the story, we have Cecilia "Cee" Kass portrayed by Elisabeth Moss. Cecilia lives with her abusive boyfriend Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) who has isolated her from everyone she knows. One night, Cecilia manages to successfully escape.

News that Adrian has died quickly reaches Cecilia, but she is suspicious about this due to the way Adrian has supposedly passed. Sure enough, it's not the last Cecilia will see of him (no pun intended) thanks to the work of the genius scientist.

Oppenheimer

Hidden Remote is finishing up this list of Peacock movies with a newer blockbuster, Oppenheimer. The 2023 award-winning film collected several rewards, including an Oscar for Best Picture, Best Director (Christopher Nolan), Best Actor (Cillian Murphy), Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.), and more. Oppenheimer has a runtime of three hours, so if you didn't see it in theaters, we can't say we blame you! Luckily, the movie is now streaming on Peacock, so watching it should be a lot easier as you can pause it whenever you need to.

Oppenheimer follows the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the man who helped develop the first nuclear weapon during World War II. It is based on the 2005 biography by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, which chronicles Oppenheimer's rise and fall. Portraying Oppenheimer is Cillian Murphy. The movie also stars Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Casey Affleck, Rami Malek, and others.
