HORROR

HORROR

While you usually go for a good old fashioned love story, why not try something different? Despite this iconic scene from Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), horror does not have to be all blood and guts.

In Psycho, a secretary from Phoenix goes on the lam for a desperate crime she would like to take back. Tired and unable to go on, she stops at a run down motel.

Other films for the horror novice:

Night of the Living Dead (1968) -

ROMANCE

SUSPENSE

SUSPENSE

Ordinarily you play it safe and silly, but this time why not try to get those hairs on the back of your neck to stand up?

FAMILY

You usually like intrigue and suspense, but why not try something completely different? A classic family movie might not be the first thing you pick, but you may be surprised how much you fall in love with a classic like Wizard of Oz (1939). After all, "there's no place like home!"

COMEDY

COMEDY

While a good drama has the power to go deep, why not lighten things up with a good old fashioned comedy? Everyone can use a good laugh every once in a while.

If you haven't seen the classic comedy Some Like It Hot (1959), start there. When two down-on-their-luck musicians witness a horrible crime, they run from the mafia disguised as women.

DRAMA

DRAMA

We get it. You like to keep it light, have a few laughs, keep the tears in your eyes where they belong. But if you want to try something different you're going to have to let yourself indulge in a meaty drama.

HISTORY

HISTORY

Perhaps you prefer to think ahead. This time, why not turn towards the past? Historical movies have the ability to transport you to another place and time. They give you perspective and compassion for people who have come before you.

Try something different tonight with Gladiator (2000). In Roman times, a powerful general's life collapses when the emperor's son murders his family and sells him into slavery.

SCI FI

SCI FI

While you usually watch something grounded in true happenings, let your imagination run wild with a science fiction film. Instead of focusing on what we can learn from our past, sci-fi warns us of our potential future.

Start with a classic like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and see what it would be like if computers had minds of their own.

Other sci-fi classics for the novice:

Jurassic Park (1990) -

A paleontologist and botanist visit a soon-to-open theme park featuring live dinosaurs. They soon learn that some things are better left buried in the ground.

ANIMATED

ANIMATED

If you crave action, change up your routine with an animated feature. You may be surprised to find that some animated films are just as enjoyable for adults as kids.

Take Up (2009), for instance. The story follows a curmudgeonly old man as he attempts to escape reality and fulfill his lifelong dream of traveling to South America.

Other animated films for the wary:

The Emperor's New Groove (2000) -

ACTION

ACTION

You tend to stick with your favorite childhood movies, but it's time to embark on some new adventures. Why not try an action flick to pluck you out of your everyday routine? We promise it won't all be guns and explosions.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) has it all: a far off land, a hunky hero, a big bad villain, a seemingly strong yet always distressed damsel. It may even have a happy ending (or perhaps an utterly bizarre one).

Other action movies for the novice:

Skyfall (2012) -

This is James Bond as you have never seen him. He must save his fellow agents as a vindictive man aims to sabotage his boss, M.

WESTERN

WESTERN

Westerns are possibly the most underrated films on our list. If you have ever shaken off the thought of watching one, think again. Not only do westerns embrace the American landscape, they also bring up challenging themes of belonging, survival, and justice.

One such adventure is True Grit (2010), the story of a 14-year-old young woman seeking justice for her father's murder.

Other suggested movies for the western novice:

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) -

A railroad tycoon aims to create a railroad stop at the only place around Flagstone with water. The only problem? The land's owner doesn't want to sell.

Red River (1948) -

MUSICAL

MUSICAL

Have you ever even considered watching a musical? If you got this result--probably not. But let your bias and fear go just this once. You may be surprised.

One musical that may change your outlook is Chicago (2002). Not only does it feature a star-studded cast with actual talent, it also interweaves jazz music into the twisted storyline of several murderesses trying to avoid getting hanged.

Other suggestions for the novice:

West Side Story (1961) -

A teenage street gang picks a fight when one of their own falls in love with the rival gang leader's sister. A modern day Romeo and Juliet, the film deals with age, race, and class.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) -
