One of the most famous action dramas of its time, top gun has earned his place in the story with Tom Cruise as Maverick, the awesome pilot with a knack for breaking rules. After 36 years, a sequel to the blockbuster hit finally hit the cinemas on May 27, 2022. However, the original film is set to say goodbye to the Netflix library.

Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is the understandable protagonist – he breaks the rules, is the best at what he does, and endears himself to both the ladies and the instructors. Previously a lone ranger, the death of his friend made him realize the importance of being a team player and having a wingman. He proves it in the decisive fight at the end and is celebrated by his colleagues for his successful return.


2) Downton Abbey

The series explores the aristocratic British high life, their not-so-disparate problems, and their way of dealing with them in seasons one through six.


3) Ladybird

Resignation date: June 2, 2022

Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, lady bird, is an unconventional film about the relationship between mother and daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson is an extremely headstrong girl living in Sacramento who, in her quest for independence, wants to pursue further studies in New York or somewhere with “culture” regardless of her family’s economic situation

Her mother, Marion McPherson, is a similarly headstrong, whimsical woman who often gets into fights with her daughter. This creates an apparent distance between them. As Lady Bird navigates her turbulent high school life, her experiences and struggles as a teenager ensure the film scores highly in terms of kinship.

The film makes a point, a point that cannot be particularly articulated, but one that resonates in the hearts of viewers.


4) Silver Linings Playbook
