Get ready for your next movie marathon with this awesome perk
Did you know that as an NDSU student you have access to a large library of movies at no additional cost? It is called the RHA cinema and all it requires is for you to log in to your NDSU account on your browser and start watching.
RHA offers hundreds of great movies for your enjoyment. Here are some recommendations that you should definitely go check out in between your homework assignments.
“1917” is a World War I movie that came out in 2019 and was nominated for many awards. It tells the story of two British soldiers who must cross through enemy territory to deliver a message that could save thousands of lives.
It sounds like a pretty standard story but what makes “1917” special is the fact that it looks like it was filmed in one shot. No cuts, no interruptions, just one long shot. It is an impressive feat of filmmaking,
The movie is intense, stressful and a great look into WWI. If you are not interested in the plot you should at least check it out for the cinematography. You will not be disappointed.
Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
Are you a fan of material arts movies or revenge flicks? Well then, the two classic films by Quentin Tarantino, “Kill Bill Vol 1” and “Kill Bill Vol 2,” are a must-watch.
“Kill Bill” follows The Bride as she attempts to get revenge on Bill, a man who tried to kill her on her wedding day. It is filled with fun gruesome action and great cinematography.
You need to watch both of these as they feel like one movie split into two parts. They are sure to entertain you for a couple of hours.
If you are not a fan of blood and gore, then you pass on these staple Tarantino movies. If you do not mind gore, then these movies are a must-see.
Mission Impossible: Fallout
The “Mission Impossible” series, or Tom Cruise-does-wild-stunts the series, is a fun-filled, action spy thriller. “Fallout” is the most recent one in the series and probably one of the best.
Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, must prevent a nuclear attack by a terrorist organization. Seems like your standard action story, the plot is not where the movie shines.
The movie shines in the fun action-set pieces and the wild stunts that Tom Cruise attempts. He even broke his ankle filming one of these stunts.
If you are a fan of wild action films then this is a must-watch. Sadly, RHA does not have any of the other ones in the series but you will not be super lost if you start with this one.
If you haven’t watched “Space Jam” yet, you need to watch it. Michael Jordan plays basketball with Bugs Bunny to save themselves. If that does not sell you on the movie then what will?
By no means is it the best movie ever made. It’s silly, wild and makes no sense but it is such a classic and you will have some fun watching it.
The film blends live-action with animation and the result is a fun movie to kick back, relax and eat some popcorn. Now is the best time to watch it, especially with a sequel on the way.
Birds of Prey
“Birds of Prey” is one of the more recent additions to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and it is one of the best. A lot of people skipped out on this when it came to theatres, but it is such a fun time.
“Birds of Prey” follows Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as she moves on from Joker and tries to find her own way in Gotham. But Black Mask, a crime boss played by Ewan McGregor, gets in her way. What ensues is a fun comic book movie with some very impressive fight scenes and a clever way to tell the story.
It feels a lot like DC’s answer to “Deadpool” and is well worth the watch for the fight scenes alone. They are unique, some are glittery and they are a lot of fun.
If you are a fan of comic book films or Harley Quinn this is a must watch.
RHA Cinema has so many more stellar films in its library and is adding more all the time. If you don’t see something you like you can also fill out a form and request certain movies.
This is a great service that NDSU students have available to them. All you have to do is look up RHA Cinema, log in and start your movie marathon. Just make sure to finish your projects first.
