10.Goodbye Lenin! (Modern Foreign Language)

In 1990, to protect his fragile mother from a fatal shock after a long coma, a young man must keep her from learning that her beloved nation of East Germany as she knew it has disappeared. Firstly with this topic I automatically choose this film, as Germany is a popular language and this is a well intentioned and often it can be really funny, in some ways this is heart warming and a likeable film.

9.The King’s Speech (English)

The story of King George VI, his impromptu ascension to the throne of the British Empire in 1936, and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch overcome his stammer.

8.On The Basis Of Sex (Citizenship)

The true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights, and the early cases of a historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice. For me personally this is ideal for Citizenship studies and it seems to cover politics, parliament, justice and human rights, this film is superbly made and Felicity Jones is excellent in her roles, it also one of those film that can be compelling and with strong acting.

7.The Da Vinci Code (Religious Education)

A murder inside the Louvre, and clues in Da Vinci painting, lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years, which could shake the foundations of Christianity.

6.Indiana Jones 1981 – 1984 (Classics)

 Indiana Jones is an archaeology searching for numerous ancient object around the world and overcome villains along the way. Overall the three films is enjoyable, exciting and a thrill ride type of films, all of them are consistent with amazing set pieces.

5.The Lion King 1994 (Drama)

Lion prince Simba and his father are targeted by his bitter uncle, who wants to ascend the throne himself. Well this is quite odd to some people as people say this is not a Drama subject type of film but it is actually, this is actually a stage play and a film as well so technically it is and overall it is a majestic film with amazing soundtrack, is also got a simple story and with great characters.

Thomas A Anderson is a man living two lives. By day he is an average computer programmer and by night a hacker known as Neo, Neo enter a forbidding underworld and he discovers the shocking truth the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber – intelligence. It has got themes of computing in this film and also it involved alternative reality, it is thought provoking and also clever with an epic style of film, it is different which I really admire.

 3.Jurassic Park (Chemistry)

Huge advancements in scientific technology have enabled a mogul to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond has invited four individuals, along with his two grandchildren, to join him at Jurassic Park. Regarding to Chemistry studies it involved scientific technology and this film is ideal for you, it is one of those film that is simply entertaining from start to finish and it has got a load of CGI/SFX which is amazing, it is well – casted and it just an exciting and entertaining film.

2.My Neighbour Totoro (Art & Design)

Just look at the animation itself in this animation film as it is hand drawn and watercolour type of film, the scenery look beautiful and it is gorgeous to look at and especially a poignancy film that is suitable for all ages and a family viewing.

1.Fantastic Fungi (Biology)

Fantastic Fungi is a descriptive time – lapse journey about the magical, mysterious, and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago.

    Modern Foreign Languages – The Lives of Others. Also about East Germany and deals with the issue of spying on each other.

    Religious Education – Life of Brian – and that’s not suggested in a jokey way!
    Classics – has to be Jason and the Argonauts. Covers a lot of the Greek myths and a great adventure.

    Computing – Hidden Figures – and also deals with rights and recognition
    Chemistry – Lorenzo’s Oil. A true story about a boy diagnosed with a rare disease and his father’s search for a cure.
