Best English Films Of 2014

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.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Movie Review: Visual Spectacle That Hooks on Tight


The 2011 film Rise of the Planet of the Apes that resurrected the franchise after a gap of a decade was a huge hit, collecting over 480 million dollars worldwide.

The Adventures of Tintin: Blisterin’ cinematic joy!

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Directed by Steven Spielberg
Cast: Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost

At times when nothing seems to be going right, there is nothing quite like getting back to the basics to regain your lost touch. The same seem to hold true for even ace director Steven Spielberg, who gets an opportunity to do just that by taking on a project like The Adventures of Tintin: the Secret of the Unicorn. Evidently, Spielberg seems to have grabbed it with both hands, because what you get onscreen is easily one of the better works from the director in recent years. Sure, it is draped in latest of film making techniques, but for the 65 year old maverick, this is certainly a nostalgic trip back to his early days of movie making.Continue reading “The Adventures of Tintin: Blisterin’ cinematic joy!”
