The thriller guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.
A retelling of one of the great escapes during the Iran hostage crisis, Argo is the chilling story of six Americans working at the U.S. embassy who manage to escape as Iranian militants storm the building. They seek refuge and hide away at the Canadian ambassador’s home but soon find they don’t know who to trust, have nowhere else to go and don’t have much time: There’s now a manhunt for the six Americans. Pressed for time and almost out of options, CIA calls on Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) to rescue the American nationals. The unconventional and very risky escape plan? Pretend to scout for film locations in Tehran for a fake sci-fi film and get the Americans out in the process.

Free Willy (1993)
Your chance to revisit one of the best family fun/animal movies of the ‘90s.
12-year-old orphan Jesse (Jason James Richter) isn’t here to make his assignment to a new foster family easy. He, instead, wants to rebel and decides to vandalize the local adventure park. Little does Jesse know: being caught spraying graffiti and having to work at the park as punishment would be the event that changes his life forever. At the aquarium, he meets Willy, an orca recently separated from his family by captors, and realizes they are a lot alike: they both long for family but feel cut off from the world. The two form a bond that turns into a wonderful friendship. Free Willy is the classic family film that never fail to warm the heart. Throw it back to the ‘90s and stream the movie on HOOQ.
Love, Rosie (2014)
If you have an affinity for heart-wrenching “shoulda, woulda, coulda,” “if only” and “almost is never enough” films.
Two long-time best friends Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) are at a crossroads in each of their lives. Their friendship, marked by the two dancing around almost’s, what if’s and potentially romantic feelings for one another, is put to the test when Alex’s family moves to the United States. Time, distance, other people and life itself eventually pull Rosie and Alex further apart in what is a charming story that tackles so-called platonic relationships between men and women.
