7 Great Movies to help Learn English through Movies and Film

1. Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo is an animated film about a clownfish called Marlin who loses his son Nemo. On the way, he meets another fish called Dory. Together, they set out on an amazing adventure to find Nemo across the huge ocean! I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, but it’s a great film to watch for all audiences – one of the best animated films of all time!


2. Terminator
The Terminator series is a story about a war between artificially intelligent (AI) machines and humans that is going on in the future. When the humans start to win the war, these AI machines send killer machines back to the past. Their goal is to try and kill the leader of the human resistance, John Connor and his family. A thrilling science fiction film that’s truly one of a kind in this genre.


3. Titanic
Titanic is one of the most celebrated films in the entire history of filmmaking. Based on a real life story, it retells a love story between Rose DeWitt Bukater (the daughter of a wealthy family) and Jack Dawson (a poor artist who sneaks onto the ship). It also has some very exciting scenes showing the events on board the RMS Titanic before it sank (one of the grandest passenger liners at that time). Titanic is also home to the famous song “My Heart Will Go On” by Céline Dion, which you might have heard of. A great all time classic, and a masterpiece of great technical complexity!


4. Harry Potter
If you like magic, Harry Potter will take you through the mysteries of Hogwarts and the wizarding world. It is a seven part book (and eight part film) series about the battle between the good and the bad wizards. The story is centered around the main characters Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. After you watch this, magic will never be the same again.


5. Star Wars
Star Wars is another epic film series, but it’s rather strange – the series wasn’t filmed in order. If you want to watch it from the start to end, it’s best to watch them in this order: 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6. Set in the Star Wars universe, this story follows the end of a long battle between two opposite forces of the universe – the Jedi Order and the Sith Lords.
In the Star Wars series, it is believed that there is a “Force” that holds together the universe. While the Jedi Order believe in compassion and kindness in using this “Force”, the Sith Lords believe in using the Force through hate, anger, jealousy and other negative feelings.
In this thousand-year battle between these two sides, the Jedi knights and the Sith Lords clash in a thrilling sequence throughout the six movies. There are no other movies like Star Wars…definitely worth checking out!


6. Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings is another one of the greatest film series in the magic category. Set in the lands of the Middle Earth, there are three primary races – dwarves, humans, elves as well as other races such as Hobbits, orcs and werewolves.
The series follows the dark plot of a rebellion led by Sauron, the most evil being across all lands at that time. To oppose this evil, a small group of fighters take on a brave mission – to destroy a ring that is said to hold the powers of Sauron himself, which would mean the fall of Sauron with its destruction.


7. Pirates of the Caribbean
Pirates of the Caribbean is a film series about pirates. Each film follows the adventures of Jack Sparrow, captain of the Black Pearl (the name of Jack’s ship), and it starts off in the first film following Jack’s attempts to get his ship back, which was stolen from him. In the next films, Jack goes on to find the Dead Man’s Chest, which contains the heart of Captain Davy Jones, someone he owes a favour to. Finally, Jack is forced to looks for the Fountain of Youth, which is a magical fountain which promises the drinker eternal youth.
Never has there been a film where you can have so much fun with pirates
