The iconic tragedy that gave birth to an equally iconic movie that beautifully depicted the events of the biggest disaster in 1912. Who can forget a young and dashing Leonardo Dicaprio and elegant Kate Winslet fighting against all odds including family and an iceberg. The movie offers enough tear jerking moments and proves that the “heart will go on.”

The 33

Another true story turned into a movie. The 33 takes us on an emotional and honest journey of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days and lived to tell the tale. It’s an incredible story of brother hood, survival and miracles.

Survival skills extend to outer space in this action-packed Michael Bay blockbuster. Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) and his crew take on an almost impossible mission, when they need to stop a gigantic meteor before it destroys planet earth. The movie that showed us the ultimate lengths a man would go for his family and country.
