9 - Monsters: Dark Continent
A sequel to the 2010 movie Monsters, Dark Continent continues ten years after the first one ends. The world has been overrun with aliens after they managed to break out of the infected zones and now have spread throughout the world.
Dark Continent focuses on the military and their attempts to quell the infected zones of the Middle East. Though not as original or well-written as its predecessor, Dark Continent is still an enjoyable action romp.
8 - Doom
Adapted from the popular video game of the same name, 2005's Doom attempts to be just as over the top and action-packed as the game. Dwayne Johnson stars as one of many "Space Marines" sent to Mars to investigate some strange occurrences, only to find that genetically enhanced beasts have taken over the facility.
While there is a lot of cheesy lines and half thought out characters, the special effects are pretty good for its time, and the over the top gun-fights and heart-pounding action make Doom worth the watch.
7 - Zathura
A spiritual successor to the 1993 classic Jumanji, also based on the books of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg, Zathura follows kids Danny, Walter, and Lisa as they play an unknown board game found in their basement, transporting them, and their house, into a wild space adventure.
A young Josh Hutcherson and Kristen Stewart star in this other-worldly sci-fi adventure, where they have to fight off aliens and robots to find their way back home. Zathura is fun for the whole family and a welcome continuation of the Jumanji franchise.
6 - Okja
This film from acclaimed director Bong Joon Ho showcases his talents of blending humor and drama, while also continuing his brilliant social commentary on the perils of capitalism.
Okja follows Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun) and her best friend, a large pig-like creature named Okja, who is taken away from her by a multi-national corporation, headed by Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton). Mija then leaves her home in South Korea to try and find her best friend, running into more and more problems along the way.
5 - Spiderwick Chronicles
Based on the best-selling children's books, Spiderwick Chronicles follows three kids that move into the old and mysterious Spiderwick Estate. When they find a fantastical world of mythical creatures around the estate, learned about from an old book left by their late uncle, they have to uncover the mysteries of the world and save it from disaster.
Fending off trolls and magical beings, befriending others, and investigating the book left behind helps them defend the fantastic Spiderwick Estate.
4 - Hook
As a continuation of the classic stories of Peter Pan, the late great Robin Williams plays a grown-up Peter, who has lost touch with his childlike self and has almost completely forgotten about his adventures as a young boy.
But when the evil Captain Hook kidnaps his children, Peter must go back to Neverland and save them. With the help from The Lost Boys, as well as Tinkerbell, Peter must find the child in himself once again in order to save his kids, and become a better man.
3 - Rim Of The World
In the midst of an alien invasion, four young friends become the last hope of survival for the human race. Rim of The World is a fun coming of age story, where four friends at a summer camp have to overcome their fears and face a frightening array of aliens in order to save the world.
Given a key that can quell the alien attackers, the gang have to face their past and look to the future in a race against time. With a great young cast of actors and a beautiful setting, Rim of The World is exciting for viewers of all ages.
2 - Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters
This Japanese-made animated film follows the desperate attempt by Earth refugees to take back the planet that was taken from them by Godzilla and other great monsters. After years of fighting Godzilla and the monsters that inhabited Earth, humanity decides to evacuate the planet to find somewhere new.
20,000 years later, a group returns to take back the planet, only to find a completely new planetary ecosystem dominated by Godzilla. Humankind and the monster must fight for the right to stay on Earth, but who will win this time?
1 - Tremors: Shrieker Island
As the seventh (yes, seventh) addition to the Tremors franchise, Shrieker Island takes viewers to the Solomon Islands, where scientists have genetically modified the well known Graboid and created other species that are far more intelligent and deadly.
Michael Gross is back once again as Burt Gummer, Graboid-hunter extraordinaire, as he attempts to save the island and its inhabitants from the deadly jaws of these wild monsters. While maybe not as polished and absorbing as the original Tremors, Shrieker Island still gives viewers that action and suspense that the series has been known for.
