5. The Guard (2011)

Ireland meets USA, what can go wrong? For starters, the movie isn’t as famous as it should be. Again it’s like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang that deserves to be watch and re-watched. It’s a comedy movie so do yourself a favor and watch it, especially if you’re into buddy cop movies.


4. The Fountain (2006)

Beautifal, poigent and strange. Well 2 out of 3 isn’t always a win. But The Fountain is an exercise in film making. People either love it or hate it. For some it is a master piece while for others it’s 2 hours they’ll never get back.

Best see if you’re the fans of the actors or the director before you sit down to watch this one.


3. The Grey (2011)

Why many people haven’t seen this is a mystery. Perhaps the movie’s greatest asset proved to be its undoing. It’s not your typical Liam Nesson film.

The movie couldn’t have come out at a worse time. Still I can’t see anyone else pulling off that role than Liam. Do yourself a favor and watch the film. Anyone who has watched it has something good to say about it, even the wolves.


2. In Bruges (2008)

This movie can be summed up as follows, one partly inconsequential dialogues, two scoops of outstanding artistic direction – okay I’m getting carried away. But the movie does that to you. It’s a dark comedy film.

Great acting from everyone involved, even the dwarf. It’s a brilliant movie that focuses on the ideas rather than the action. You’ll find yourself laughing uncontrollably only to tear up the next.


1. The Fall (2006)

It’s actually criminal that this film is not a classic. Released the same year we got classics like the Departed, Prestige and Little Miss Sunshine, The Fall was a movie that hardly anyone saw. It’s one of the most gorgeous movies ever to be made.

The story and characters in it have all the ingredients for this to be a great movie. The story is simple, the visuals are breathtaking and the ending is spectacular. If cinema is a visual medium then The Fall is one of the best cinematic film in recent times.
