As the year comes to an end, movie buffs every year are tempted to come out with their different best movie lists and we are no different. Every year we publish a couple of such posts written by individual authors which talk about some of the best films from India and globally, leading to several intense and passionate debates, discussions and arguments among fellow movie buffs.
But this year we decided to do something different. We asked some of our authors to individually list down English films they enjoyed watching this year.
While Boyhood and Gone Girl seem to be the universal favourites with Nightcrawler coming a close second, there are quite a few interesting recommendations by our authors that deserve to be seen by all and warrant a debate.
Much before Johnny Depp came to be known as a movie star who did a number of quirky and diverse roles, Depp found early fame as a TV star thanks to the hit series 21 Jump Street. The show also was one of the earliest successful TV shows for Fox studios. Given the immense popularity of the television show, the temptation to adapt it into a movie was hard to resist.

Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.

This time they are going undercover in a local college, so expect some more funny one liners and insane gags.
9. A Million Ways to Die in the West : Written & directed by an absolute mental Seth”Family Guy, Ted” MacFarlene, this film promises to push the limits of comedy which range from gross to the most creative gags. See the fight scene between Mark Wahlberg and Ted in the movie Ted to know what am talking about. A Million Ways To Die In The West tells the story of a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger’s wife to win back the woman who left him. It sounds serious but trust me it’s going to be madness and knowing Seth’s work it maybe something out of the box.Continue reading “10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2014”
