In 2006, a movie was released that took the world by storm. "The Last King of Scotland" is a historical drama film that tells the story of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, played masterfully by Forest Whitaker, and his relationship with a young Scottish doctor named Nicholas Garrigan, played by James McAvoy. The movie, directed by Kevin Macdonald, was adapted from a novel of the same name by Giles Foden, which was inspired by the real-life events that took place during Amin's reign of terror in Uganda in the 1970s.
In the late 1970s, a sci-fi horror movie was released that would redefine the genre and become a cultural phenomenon. That movie was "Alien," directed by Ridley Scott and released in 1979. The movie follows the crew of the commercial spaceship Nostromo, who encounter a deadly extraterrestrial creature on a remote planet. "Alien" was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $100 million at the box office and earning rave reviews for its claustrophobic atmosphere, intense scares, and groundbreaking visual effects.
