The Peppersmith Film Club: Our top picks

We're all familiar with scrolling through the internet for a good film to watch. You spend about an hour trying to agree on something and by that time everyone just wants to head to bed and calls it quits. So, we're making things a little easier by putting together the team's favourite films. We've got a bit of everything from comedy classics to biographies. Read on to find something for you... 

Thriller & Crime

No Country for Old Men (2007)

The Coen brothers doing what they do best. It's a cinematic excellence created from Cormac McCarthy's grim, darkly funny novel.

Adaptation (2002)

A crime film, a comedy, a thriller and one of the strangest movies you will ever see. Brilliant.

In Bruges (2008)

A botched job sends two Irish Hitmen to Belgium to cool off for a while. Their adventures with locals and tourists soon become surreal. A proper comedy-crime film.

Fantasy & Sci-Fi

Tomorrowland (2015)

Much maligned at the time but a beautiful heart-warming romp.

Super 8 (2011)

The only film made in the last few years that seems like an 80s classic. A film made like that don’t make them anymore.

Comedy

Bridesmaids (2011)

Your hilarious feel good female-driven comedy. Great cast too. 

The Other Guys (2010)

We know it looks a bit rubbish, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, and it should be rubbish but it's actually great. Good support from Michael Keaton and Eva Mendes.

The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

Hands down Wez Anderson’s best creation. Luke Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Stiller star in this dysfunctional family comedy-drama, where their eccentric farther Royal (played by Gene Hackman) causes havoc to the family. A story of lost-greatness and redemption.

Based on a true story

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

An award winning film showcasing the celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. 

Searching for Sugarman (2012)

South Africa saves a Detroit musical genius from eternal obscurity. An amazing true story and great tunes to boot.

Joy (2015)

True story of the woman in the 90s who invented the self-ringing mop. Takes you through the trials and tribulations (and stress) of building a business. Proper female power.

A Beautiful Mind (2001)

The tale of tortured genius mathematician, John Nash, as he makes his way through Princeton University.

BlacKkKlansman (2018)

1970s - A black cop goes undercover with the Ku Klux Klan in Colorado Springs. Distressing, comical and puts you on the edge of your seat all at the same time.
