Comedy movies on Crave


The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

A college grad aspiring to be a journalist becomes an assistant to Miranda Priestly, one of New York City’s biggest magazine editors.

The Devil Wears Prada is a classic rom-com that never gets old, and I think I love it more watching it as an adult!

Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, and Stanley Tucci all star in The Devil Wears Prada.

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.

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 & 2010)

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.

2 films available on Crave, watch the trailer

Elf (2003)

Elf is an iconic Christmas movie I watch with my family every single year.

It’s about a human named Buddy, who accidentally gets transported to the North Pole when he sneaks into Santa’s sack as a baby, and he travels to New York City as an adult who thinks he’s an elf.

He meets his real father, a cynical businessman, alongside his father’s loving wife and son.

Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel star in Elf!

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.

Million Dollar Baby (2004)

A veteran boxing trainer helps train a young woman who dreams of becoming a professional boxer.

I’m not much of a sports person, but the incredible story is what makes Million Dollar Baby so good.

It actually got nominated for a bunch of Oscars and won a couple of them.

Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, and Hilary Swank all star in the movie, and you might also recognize a bunch of other actors!

The Matrix franchise (1999 & 2021)

You’ve probably heard of the Matrix franchise, and you can watch the first and fourth movies 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.

1 film available on Crave, watch the trailer

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!

Top Gun (1986)

Top Gun is an iconic action movie starring a young Tom Cruise, who plays a hot shot fighter pilot.

While fighting to be the top fighter pilot at the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School, he also tries to win the heart of his flight instructor.

You’ve definitely heard the song “Take My Breath Away”, which was actually made for this classic film.

The movie also inspired the name of a ride at Canada’s Wonderland, but it was changed to “Flight Deck” sometime in the last decade.

There’s actually a sequel that just came out this year, Top Gun: Maverick, which also stars Tom Cruise!

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.

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!

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.

The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021)

Based on real life events of legendary jazz musician Billie Holiday, The United States vs. Billie Holiday is a biopic about how the Federal Bureau of Narcotics tried to silence her.

Andra Day did an incredible job playing Billie Holiday!

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

Romance movies on Crave


Grease (1978)

After falling in love during the summer, Danny and Sandy realize they’re now at the same high school.

Based in 1950s California, Grease is a fun musical film that’ll give you chills, they’re multiplying.

A young John Travolta stars in Grease!

The real couple behind All My Life got married at Casa Loma in Toronto.

All My Life (2020)

All My Life is another emotional romance movie based on the true love story of Jennifer Carter and Solomon Chau.

Definitely have a box of tissues handy ’cause it’s a tearjerker.

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

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.

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!

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


Harry Potter franchise (2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 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 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 franchise (2014 & 2017)

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 two films on Crave Canada, and the third movie on Amazon Prime Video.

There’ll also be a 5th movie coming out in 2023!

Batman franchise (1989, 1992, 1995, 1997, 2005, 2008, 2012, & 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

Godzilla franchise (1954, 1964, 1974, & 2021)

If you’re in the mood to watch some old school movies, you can watch some of the OG Godzilla films on Crave, which are all in Japanese.

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.

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 4th movie unfortunately isn’t on Crave, and you can watch the 5th movies in theatres now!

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

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 Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

The Devil Made Me Do It is the third instalment of The Conjuring series, where Ed and Lorraine Warren investigate a young man accused of murder, who claims he’s been possessed.

The Conjuring is one of my all-time favourite horror franchises – the movies are actually terrifying, and they’re actually based on real people and real life cases!

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star in all three movies, and they’re fantastic together.

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!

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!

Freaky (2020)

Freaky Friday meets Halloween in this horror-comedy.

When teenager Millie Kessler becomes the target of the Butcher, the town serial killer, they magically switch bodies with the power of a mystical dagger, and she discovers she only has 24 hours to get her identity back.

Freaky is a fun watch, and it’s suitable for even your friends who aren’t crazy about scary movies!

Kathryn Newton (Detective Pikachu and Big Little Lies) and Vince Vaughn star in this one!

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 (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.
