Want to watch a really great movie without going to the movie theatre as the Writer’s and Actor’s Strike wages on?

As we’ve long maintained here at Actors’ SOUND ADVICE, wherever we direct our thoughts impacts our imagination and, as a result, impacts our performance as voice actors.

The same applies to writers and directors as it applies to actors, regardless of the genre or medium. And just as writers must read a great deal to improve their literary prowess and find their voice, actors need to study a variety of recorded media (film, TV and voiceover) that shape our culture and the work we’ll most likely perform. Besides, audition specs are often full of pop culture references from popular TV shows, film and social media. That doesn’t mean you have to watch everything out there to FEED YOUR READ, but…

Here are 25 of some of the best movies you’ve either yet to see (and ought to), or that are well worth revisiting! There’s bound to be a few to suit you. Google them to determine which ones suit you best!
