The foundation of every motion picture that has inspired and succeeded in creating its special place in our heart is laid by the written words – THE SCRIPT.
We as an audience, aspiring writers and filmmakers often wonder, how did the writer came up with this idea? How do they write such an engaging script, created effective dialogues’ and memorable characters? What process do they follow? If there is any, how do they deal with rejections, rewrites and the writer’s block? Their thoughts on filmmaking, direction, critics, the movie business and lot more…

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.
Language : English | Running Time : 169 Minutes | Director : Christopher Nolan
As usual, a Christopher Nolan film has generated enough polarizing views. How can it not? We are talking about a filmmaker whom a legion considers their God. This set of audience has gone on to claim that “Interstellar” is a work of so many great things in it that it is not only comparable to Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” but also better than it. There’s another set of audience who didn’t understand the vision or the packaging of Nolan’s tale that they’ve dismissed it as silly, with some people going s far as bringing their dusty old physics text books out to argue about the wormholes and space-time continuum. These are the people the film isn’t aimed for. Then there are people like me who were bowled over by Christopher Nolan’s ability to churn yet another blockbuster, a studio film packaged to convince us that there’s more meat than bones and fell in love with much of the richness in offer but also have to differ in placing both the filmmaker and the movie on a pedestal.

Reportedly, Christopher Nolan walked up to composer Hans Zimmer and gave him a really short story about a father leaving his son for some unspecified reason. Hans Zimmer wrote something in a day, and that’s the music Nolan used for Interstellar, an epic about humanity looking for an extraterrestrial home because of the impending death of the earth and a dad being forced to leave his daughter by his sense of duty. I found this out after the end of the film, and the whole movie I was thinking that it was being made significantly more awesome by the music. There’s nothing better for a movie about space exploration as a lethal taskmaster as well as the frontier of human knowledge than a melancholy and poignant score as opposed to the deep bass thrums Zimmer usually puts in Nolan’s movies.Continue reading “Interstellar (2014) Movie Review: “Gracious.” “No, But Efficient.””

Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.
Kindly note that this list is purely compiled on the basis of my personal choices and preferences.
10. 22 Jump Street : Co-Written by the multi-talented actor/writer Jonah ”Superbad, MoneyBall” Hill he teams up once again with Channing ”G.I Joe”Tatum in 22 Jump Street. 22 Jump Street is a story of 2 undercover cops who are so good at being incapable that in the 1st film they had to let go of a criminal because they couldn’t read him his rights. The film which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) is a sequel to the hilarious 21 Jump Street. 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”
