6 amazing movies to watch on the HBO Max platform

"Judas and the Black Messiah"

The “Judas and the Black Messiah” movie is a Warner Bros production and was promoted directly on HBO Max, this is one of the top Oscar-nominated movies of 2021. A sensation of the historical events that encompass the Panther Party Black.

One of the most controversial political associations of the 60s and 70s, all seen through an avant-garde focal point. The film follows FBI source William O'Neal as he is forced to invade and police the Illinois Party and its boss, Fred Hampton.

While O'Neal savors the risk of controlling his two friends and his boss, Special Agent Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons) can't so blatantly separate the good guys from the bad guys.

The famous 2021 film was nominated for 6 Oscars 2021, including Best Supporting Actor, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

"Pitch Perfect"

The first establishment movie of "Pitch Perfect" is one of the most impressive of all. And considering that strictly speaking it wasn't that long ago, it seems like it happened a long time ago when a cappella songs were cool, back in 2012.

Beca appears in another school where the most stylish teenagers in the vicinity are only those who make a cappella outfits. She really cares very little about joining the Barden Bellas, however as she joins her new school this will change.

Understand that the only thing that each member of the clubs practically share is that they know how to sing. By joining, Beca helps her people get out of their own safety and comfort zones and make a new song that will take them to the top of the universe of school music.

"The New Mutants"

The New Mutants was released discreetly in the auditoriums during the COVID-19 pandemic, it was not a well-known film, since this circumstance caused it to have little audience.

In truth, the main reason you are here is that this movie was in the making for more than five years, quite a long time when it was generating a lot of expectations in people, and it was worth the wait.

The film follows five weird teenagers as they undergo drugs in a mysterious office designed to cure them of their dangerous powers. Dr. Cecilia Reyes works energetically to help them stifle their powers, accepting that she works for the benefit of all.

However, there is something abhorrent behind the memories of each monster. The cast includes actress "Maisie Williams" from "Game of Thrones," "Anya Taylor-Joy" and "Charlie Heaton".


This is one of the best films directed by “Christopher Nolan” it was probably the most exposed and discussed film of 2020. Part of that was due to the evident emphasis on showing Tenet in various cinemas around the world regardless of the pandemic.

However, a greater part was due to the controversial marketing campaign, as well as the explanations of the famous actors stating that they did not decipher the true message of the film, since it is a very dark film and manages to impact anyone.

Without a doubt, "Tenet" has that mind-blowing, grim vibe like Nolan's movies, which continues with its excellent pattern of special effects. With an excellent visual production and perpetually provocative.

The movie "Tenet" will leave you thinking for a long time after watching it, and you might see it at least a couple of times, because of how shocking it is.

"Doctor Sleep"

The story of little Danny Torrance is very sad, he had to live his childhood of "The Shining" in his youth and turned to liquor and drugs to suffocate his otherworldly gifts. Additionally, he befriends Abra Stone, a young woman whose powers could surpass his own.

In the variation of the movie "Doctor Sleep" written by the famous "Stephen King" Danny has another opportunity to rethink himself as a doctor in palliative considerations to comfort all the patients who are about to see the light.

However, when both are undermined by a religion that haunts individuals with "the shining", Danny realizes that he may need to face the ghosts of the Overlook Hotel one last chance to save himself and his partner Abra.


This is an excellent film that was originally produced by HBO Max, it was released a couple of months ago and is one of the best filming in the action category, it is one of those stories that catch you from the first moment, an excellent option to enjoy at home.

This strangely named movie revolves around a group of scammers. Robert is portrayed by "Richard Jenkins," Vieja Dolio is "Rachel Wood" and "Theresa Dyne" is Debra Winger.

The point is that the parents of the Old Dolio do not consider her their child, but basically an accomplice that they can take advantage of. Thus, while trying to carry out a trick, Robert and Theresa enlist the help of Melanie (Gina Rodríguez).

Then they begin to regard her as their daughter. There is something that surprised Old Dolio, since Melanie is the only one in the family who offers her all her support and emotional help, which makes her wonder if she really cares even a little to her parents.
