The Wolf of Wall Street [2013]

Genre: Biography, Comedy, Crime

Rating: 8/10.

With Martin Scorsese, you never know what to expect, but one thing is for sure, the movie will surely have a hell a lot of swearing. Based on the real life of Jordan Belfort and some fictionalization, this movie is all about one man – Leonardo DiCaprio.. Give him the goddamn Oscar already. The movie could have been cut short by around 20 mins easily. It drags a little in the middle stages. But its hilarious, unexpected and witty. Quite a different Scorsese movie from the ones in the past.

Prisoners [2013]

Genre: Crime, Thriller, Drama

Rating: 8.5/10.

A brilliant thriller right from the word ‘Go’, until the ambiguous ending. Although the movie lasts for quite a long 150 mins, the story makes up for it.. Jake Gyllenhaal & Hugh Jackman are brilliant in this.. The story is well crafted along the lines of a Zodiac and Gone Baby Gone. Definitely a must watch for those who like thrillers.

Fast & Furious 6 [2013]

Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

Rating: 7/10.

Watch this movie only as a pure entertainer and not expecting a sensible film-making. The action scenes are terrific. There are too many cliches in the movie. The Rock has literally become a human hulk. His body size and arms have doubled from his WWE days. There’s one terrific scene on a bridge which is not to be missed. Just pure entertainment.

The Raid: Redemption [2011]

Genre: Thriller, Action, Crime

Rating: 8.5/10.

Don’t miss this movie at any cost. It played at very few theaters when it came out. Glad I didn’t miss it out because it is one of the best action movie from the past few years. Terrific fight scenes and an amazing soundtrack. The only bad thing might be it was dubbed in Indian accented English since its an Indonesian movie. It sounded pathetic. Better to watch the original Indonesian version with subs.

The Dark Knight Rises [2012]

Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

Rating: 9.5/10.

The Dark Knight movies have a knack of producing great villains.. First Joker, now Bane. Not to mention, Catwoman is excellent. Batman is at his usual best. And JGL, the guy is just one of those people who can fit into any role perfectly. Batman reappears to save the city which started hating him ever since he was branded as the one who was responsible for Harvey Dent’s death. Movie is just great, shouldn’t even be telling that. Another one in the bag of Nolan. Hats off to a great director and a great movie. Watch it ASAP.

Gangs of Wasseypur [2012]

Genre: Crime, Action, Drama

Rating: 8.5/10.

This movie was split into 2 different movies for the audience. Both the movies are a true masterpiece because Bollywood has rarely made anything so good. Its a great treat to watch such a story. Anurag Kashyap is easily the best Indian director right now. While Manoj Bajpayee is absolutely brilliant in the first part, the character’s son played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui takes up the mantle in the second part and delivers an epic portrayal in the second one. And the music, the tracks are a delight.
