Best Movies to Understand Slavery

Here's a list of some of the best movies that approach the subject of slavery, either as the main topic or as a backdrop for individual stories. It may be difficult to confront and hard to understand how human beings would use others as slaves, and that is why it is so important we learn the stories of the people who suffered through those days.

These films will shed light on the struggles endured, show real suffering, and provide inspiration for us all as we strive for greater justice today. If you want to gain more understanding and appreciation for those unimaginably difficult times, make sure you use this list as a checklist.

The list is displayed as a comparison list, but it can be viewed as a table on the menu below this description (on desktop) or in the top right corner (on mobile). We also included where you can watch all of these movies by streaming in the UK, the US, Canada, and Australia. To view the list in alphabetical order sort it by Title. If you would like to see it in release order, sort it by year. We don't yet have chronological order for this list, but are willing to add it if you want it. Leave your suggestions.

                    Most popular Shark Movies (and where to watch them)

                    There are many shark movies that have been created over the years, with different takes on these creatures of the deep. One of the earliest shark movies was Jaws, released in 1975 and directed by Steven Spielberg. This movie spawned a whole genre of shark films and helped to cement the image of the shark as a deadly predator. In more recent years, films such as Sharknado and The Shallows have taken audiences by storm, with their over-the-top shark attacks and campy humor.

                    Here is a list of some of the most popular shark movies, with the IMDb ratings, runtime, release year and more. We've also listed where you can watch it, so if you're looking for the best shark movies on Hulu, or Netflix, or Binge, or any other streaming service, simply use the filter to find if it's available in your country.

                    You can view this list alphabetically, order it by release year, order it based on IMDb ratings, or keep it as is - in order of ratings. Change from table to comparison if you don't want to use it as a checklist.
