Best movies on Crave Canada to binge-watch


Comedy movies on Crave


Legally Blonde (2001 & 2003)

If you’re in need of some girl boss inspo, Legally Blonde is the movie to watch.

After Elle’s boyfriend breaks up with her to start a new life with a new girl and as a Harvard law student, Elle enrols into the same school and shows him who’s boss.

What, like it’s hard?

Even though I’ve watched Legally Blonde a gazillion times, I had no idea it was actually based on a true story.

It’s based on novelist Amanda Brown’s experiences at Stanford Law School!

2 films available on Crave

Bridesmaids (2011)

Bridesmaids is another one of those classic comedies that never gets old.

Annie is asked by her best friend Lillian to be her maid of honour, but it all turns into a disaster when she gets into a feud with one of the other bridesmaids.

Father of the Bride (2022)

Father of the Bride is a super fun rom-com about Cuban-American architect and father of the bride, Billy, and his family.

I love that it’s centred around an immigrant family, and yes, it’s also a remake of the Steve Martin movie (though that one is also a remake)!

Eighth Grade (2018)

Kayla is a shy and introverted eighth grader who posts videos about self-confidence online.

The coming-of-age movie was written and directed by Bo Burnham, a comedian who you might recognize from YouTube!

He casted actual eighth graders for the film, and he actually found the lead actress on YouTube while researching about teenagers for the film.

Eight Grade is totally not something for kids to watch, even though it’s about kids.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

Magic Mike (2012)

Experienced male stripper Mike shows the ropes to a 19-year-old he names the Kid.

Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, and Alex Pettyfer star in Magic Mike!

Fun fact: it’s not a true story, but it’s inspired by Channing Tatum’s former life as a male stripper.

Sex and the City: The Movie (2008)

While a lot of people didn’t love the Sex and the City movies, I loved that it was an extension of the show.

Though I did watch the movies before I watched the show!

Sex and the City: The Movie is set four years after the show, and it’s basically a continuation of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda’s lives.

You can watch the original show on Crave, as well as the new series, And Just Like That!

The new series is okay, but I might be saying that because I’m sad Kim Cattrall isn’t in it.

Drama movies on Crave


Good Will Hunting (1997)

Will Hunting is a math genius who gets help from a psychiatrist after facing an emotional crisis.

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Robin Williams all star in Good Will Hunting!

The screenplay was written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, which I find so incredible, especially with how young they were at the time.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

You’ve probably heard of the Matrix franchise, and you can watch the newest movie on Crave.

It’s basically all about a dystopian future where humanity is unknowingly trapped inside a simulated reality.

Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne star in all The Matrix movies, and The Matrix Resurrections also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, and Jada Pinkett Smith!

Inception (2010)

Inception is one of the most mind-boggling movies out there, and it’s almost 3 hours long.

Dom Cobb enters people’s dreams and steals secrets from their subconscious minds, and he gets the opportunity to have his criminal past wiped in exchange for implanting an idea into someone’s mind.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Elliot Page all star in Inception!

Blue Bayou (2021)

A Korean adoptee raised in a small Louisiana town struggles to make a better life for his pregnant wife and stepdaughter.

After facing deportation from the only country he’s ever called home, he has to face the ghosts of his past.

Blue Bayou is an incredible and extremely emotional film, and it’s definitely one of the best films I’ve watched in 2022.

Be sure to have a box of tissues on-hand, because I was crying throughout the movie and sobbing by the end.

Fun fact: the actor who plays Eric from Twilight, Justin Chon, is the writer, director, and star of Blue Bayou!

Alicia Vikander, who plays Lara Croft in the latest Tomb Raider movies, is his co-star.

Light of My Life (2019)

Light of My Life is a beautiful post-apocalyptic drama about a father who does everything to protect his young daughter after a mysterious plague wipes out most of the female population.

Casey Affleck (yes, he’s related to Ben Affleck – he’s his brother) stars as the father, and he does an incredible job showcasing the love a father has for his daughter.

Elizabeth Moss also has a minor role as his wife!

Four Good Days (2020)

After leaving a detox clinic, a young addict tries her best to stay clean while living with her estranged mother for four days.

It’s an emotional and inspiring story, and it’s actually based on a true story!

Mila Kunis and Glenn Close are incredible together in Four Good Days.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021)

The Eyes of Tammy Faye is a biographical drama about the rise and fall of Tammy Faye, an American evangelist and TV personality.

It’s actually based on the 2000 documentary of the same name.

Jessica Chastain is incredible as Tammy Faye, and Andrew Garfield is great as Jim Bakker!

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

42 (2013)

42 is based on the true story of Jackie Robinson, one of the most legendary baseball players of all-time.

After Major League executive Branch Rickey drafts Jackie Robinson as a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers, they’re targeted with racism and hostility, but Robinson lets his talents speak for himself.

Fun fact: all MLB players wear the number 42 in April to commemorate Jackie Robinson’s accomplishments, and the number 42 is the only number retired in baseball.

Chadwick Boseman plays Jackie Robinson in the film, and he’s incredible.

Boogie (2021)

Alfred “Boogie” Chin is a high school basketball star living in Queens, New York, with dreams of one day playing in the NBA.

He navigates his parents pressuring him to earn a scholarship to an elite college, a new girlfriend, high school, and on-court rivals.

Eddie Huang wrote, directed, and starred in Boogie, and it’s actually inspired by some of his own life experiences!

Romance movies on Crave


In the Mood for Love (2000)

Two neighbours start to form a connection after they realize both their spouses are having affairs.

Everything about In the Mood for Love is stunning – the cinematography, the writing, the wardrobe – it’s such a masterpiece.

It also stars Tony Leung as the male lead, who was the dad in Shang-Chi!

The film is also in Cantonese, so you’ll have to read subtitles.

Marry Me (2022)

Popstar Kat Valdez is about to get married on stage to the love of her life, but moments before, she finds out her fiancé has been cheating on her.

She has a meltdown on-stage and ends up marrying a random stranger in the crowd – a middle school math teacher and single dad.

Marry Me is totally unrealistic but still a very cute and light-hearted rom-com worth watching.

It also stars J-Lo, Owen Wilson, Maluma, and John Bradley (Sam from Game of Thrones, which you can watch on Crave)!

Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998)

If you’re looking for a fun family movie to watch, Ever After: A Cinderella Story is enjoyable for everyone.

It’s a cute and funny Cinderella story starring Drew Barrymore!

Danielle is treated like a servant by her stepmother and stepsisters, and her life changes when Prince Henry, heir to the kingdom, falls in love with her.

Looking for something new to binge-watch? Here are some of the best television series and shows to watch on Crave TV Canada!

Family movies on Crave


Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride (2005)

Corpse Bride is an iconic Tim Burton movie, and probably my favourite of his.

While practicing his wedding vows, Victor gets dragged to the land of the dead by Emily, who wants to marry him.

Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter voice the two main characters!

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

Roald Dahl was my favourite author growing up – I read all of his books as a kid!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was definitely one of my favourites, and it tells the story of Charlie and a group of other children who win golden tickets to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.

A little Freddie Highmore (from Bates Motel) stars alongside Johnny Depp, who plays Willy Wonka!

Tim Burton also directed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Action & adventure movies on Crave


The Northman (2022)

After his uncle brutally murders his father and takes his mother as a bride, young Prince Amleth promises to get his revenge, and he gets the chance two decades later.

The Vikings series on Netflix is what got me interested in the viking era, and The Northman is a fantastic film!

It stars a lot of big names, including Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, and Björk.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

Jumanji franchise (1995 & 2017)

After two kids come across a magical board game called Jumanji, they discover a man who’s trapped in the game and try to rescue him.

It’s a fun movie that’s sparked a more modern remake, and you can watch the original and remake on Crave!

In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, four students get trapped in a magical video game during detention, and they get thrown into the world.

It’s hilarious, and the cast is awesome.

While the concept is the same as the 1995 film, the fact that it’s based in a video game makes it a lot different.

Both the 1995 and 2010s versions are great in their own ways!

2 films available on Crave, watch the trailers for the 1995 & 2017 movies

Oldboy (2003)

Oldboy is an absolutely wild film by acclaimed South Korean director, Park Chan-wook.

It tells the story of Dae-Su, an obnoxious drunk who gets abducted from the street, wakes up in a cell, and spends the next 15 years in solitude.

After he’s suddenly released by his captors, he tracks down his jailor to find out the truth.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

Harry Potter franchise (2001-2011)

You probably don’t need me to explain the iconic Harry Potter film series to you, but it’s about an orphan named Harry Potter who goes to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and meets lifelong friends.

It’s of course not as simple and wholesome as that, but I’ll let you watch the movies to discover more.

You can stream all 8 Harry Potter movies on Crave!

The Lord of the Rings franchise (2001-2003)

This epic fantasy trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien is set in a distant past where heroes fight against evil.

The Lord of the Rings stars some iconic actors, including Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, and Liv Tyler!

You can watch all 3 movies on Crave, and there’s actually a prequel series called The Rings of Power that you can watch on Prime Video.

3 films available on Crave

The Hobbit franchise (2012, 2013 & 2014)

If you don’t already know what The Hobbit is, it’s set in the same fantasy universe as The Lord of the Rings.

All three movies are a prequel to The Lord of the Rings, and they’re about the adventures of hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

You can watch An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug, and The Battle of the Five Armies all on Crave.

You can also watch The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the new Rings of Power series on Prime Video!

3 films available on Crave

Bourne franchise (2001, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2013)

The Bourne franchise is another great action series, and you can watch the first 4 out of 5 movies on Crave.

Matt Damon stars as Jason Bourne in the first 3 films, a former CIA agent with amnesia, searching for clues of his past.

The 4th movie stars Jeremy Renner as the main character, and Matt Damon returns for the 5th (though it’s not on Crave).

4 films available on Crave

John Wick (2014-2019)

After the dog his recently deceased wife gifted him is killed, retired hitman John Wick seeks vengeance from the mobsters.

I’m not typically into the action genre, but John Wick is a franchise I really like!

You can watch the first 3 movies on Crave, and a 5th movie is coming out in 2023.

3 films available on Crave, watch the trailer

Batman franchise (1989-2022)

While I’ve never been into the whole superhero thing, I do like Batman (with Christian Bale) and Spiderman (with Tobey Maguire).

If you’re into Batman, you can watch all the Batman movies from 1989 to 2022 on Crave.

The funny thing is that different actors play Batman in every single one of these films, and personally I think Christian Bale is my favourite.

8 films available on Crave

Dune (1984 & 2021)

A gifted young man born into a great destiny must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his people.

You can watch the original Dune film from 1984 or the 2021 remake, which stars a bunch of big names including Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, and Jason Momoa.

If you’re into shows like The 100 and Raised by Wolves, you’ll enjoy Dune!

Thriller movies on Crave


Promising Young Woman (2020)

Barista by day and vigilante by night, 30-year-old med school dropout Cassie gets an unexpected chance to get revenge for the past.

While Promising Young Woman is a thriller/comedy, it’s quite sad, though there’s sort of a happy ending.

A bunch of well-known actors star in this film, including Carey Mulligan, Bo Burnham, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Adam Brody, and Connie Britton.

Don’t Worry Darling (2022)

A young couple live in the utopian 1950s community of Victory, an experimental company town where all the men are working on a top-secret project.

The wives of all the men enjoy the luxuries of their seemingly perfect paradise, but meanwhile something sinister lurks below the surface.

I do wish they’d explained some things more, but overall the film is a good watch!

Harry Styles, Florence Pugh, Olivia Wilde, Chris Pine, and Gemma Chan all star in Don’t Worry Darling.

There was actually a whole lot of controversy surrounding the film before it was released, with supposedly a lot of drama within the cast. You can Google it ’cause it’s a lot!

Horror movies on Crave

Scream (1996, 1997, & 2000)

Can you call yourself a horror fan without having seen Scream?

The Scream franchise revolves around Sidney Prescott, who constantly gets chased by psychopaths in ghostface masks.

It’s definitely one of my favourite horror franchises of all-time, and you can stream the first 3 movies on Crave.

The 6th movie will also be coming out in theatres in 2023!

It’s the ultimate slasher franchise that never gets old or boring, and I never get tired of re-watching it.

While Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger may be the OG slasher villains, I find myself laughing too much since both franchises started in the 70s and 80s and the special effects and costumes are kinda corny.

Stanley Kubrick Exhibition at TIFF Bell Lightbox
An exhibit from The Shining at the Stanley Kubrick exhibition inside TIFF Bell Lightbox in 2015.

The Shining (1980)

The Shining is of course one of the most iconic horror movies ever made.

Even if you haven’t seen the film before, you’ll definitely recognize some of its most famous lines and scenes.

Jack Torrance moves his wife and young son into the Overlook Hotel, where they plan on taking care of it during the winter.

His son starts to get disturbing visions as Jack starts to discover the dark secrets behind the hotel.

There’s a sequel that came out in 2019 called Doctor Sleep, but tbh I don’t think it does the original film any justice.

It’s about the son, Danny, who’s now an adult haunted by his past.

The Last Night in Soho (2021)

A young fashion design student mysteriously transports to the 60s, where she encounters a glamorous aspiring singer.

While everything seems all glitz and glam at the start, things turn out to be darker than they seem.

Anya Taylor-Joy is incredible in The Last Night in Soho, and Matt Smith is also great!

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

The Forever Purge (2021)

Part of the popular Purge franchise, The Forever Purge is about a different set of people and how they deal with the infamous Purge.

If you don’t know what the fictional “Purge” is, it’s 12 hours when almost all crime is legal, in an effort to create a ~crime-free~ world the rest of the year.

In this one, a couple works for a wealthy family, and both families have to band together to fight off a masked gang of killers on the morning after the Purge.

Come Play (2020)

Lonely Oliver spends his time glued to screens, and a lonely monster uses his devices to enter his world.

Come Play is a great thriller with a pretty good ending, and I love how they use modern technology to tell a terrifying story.

You might recognize Gillian Jacobs from the Netflix series Love!

Documentaries on Crave


Framing Britney Spears (2021)

You might’ve heard the news about Britney Spears’ father’s conservatorship over her life, and Framing Britney Spears goes into a deep dive about it.

I remember a lot of the things mentioned in the doc as a kid, and it’s really eye-opening hearing about them as an adult.

They also released a second part on Crave, Controlling Britney Spears, days before her court hearing (where her father was suspended as her conservator!)

Fake Famous - HBO documentary on Crave

Fake Famous (2021)

Three different people in Los Angeles with small followings get turned into influencers as a social experiment, which involves buying Instagram followers and taking “fake” photos.

While Fake Famous is a really interesting documentary to watch, it’s clearly very biased and not representative of the actual influencer world lol.

If you enjoy the documentary, you might also enjoy my opinion piece on why everyone wants to be Instagram famous.
