This year's release and the upcoming years' too.....
2014 was not so exciting for the INDIAN film industry, Bollywood as well as other regional film industries couldn't score so big, so lets hope that in 2015 they will score more moolah at the box-office and send a good movie to the Oscars unlike 'Youngistaan' in 2014.
Includes the television series that are recommended to attain salvation. Hehe !!!
This list includes those 10 movies(particularly)which can rarely be hated, even by cynics ! This list doesn't include movies of the yesteryear.
For whatever reason (most likely the fact that viewing is easier than reading), films don’t seem to get the same kind of cultural respect as books do. Which is a shame because excellent movies can be just as entertaining, mind-expanding, and life changing as good books. Scenes, characters, and quotes from the greatest movies stay with us long after we view them. Their ability to transport you to different times and exotic locations, to completely absorb you in the story, make movies one of the closest approximations of real magic we have in this world.
And for better and for worse, film has had a huge impact on masculinity in the 20th Century. Movies have produced archetypes of manliness that many men judge themselves against today. To view how male characters of cinema have been portrayed over the decades, is to see clearly the ways in which our perception of masculinity has changed and continues to change. Thus it seemed only proper that The Art of Manliness take a stab at creating a list of essential movies every man should see.

The year 2013 will be good but I think the upcoming one will be a better one. I will give you solid reason for that-
1.Nolan will be back with sci-fi revolving round time-travel. Friends we have seen his previous sci-fi , so considering that fact we can assume this one will need an additional brain for the viewer.
2.After doing some war, history films Spielberg is back in his special area again sci-fi. Jurassic in 3D.
3.The year 2012 turned out to be the year to mark 50tyh anniversary of James Bond and the year to mark the first billion dollar Bond. If we go with speculations Sam Mendes maybe back to do it again with Craig.
4.2012 was the year for Jennifer Lawrence. Not only she won the Oscar for 'SLP' but her film 'The Hunger Games' tasted the success commercially and critically. It rounded up $408,010,692 domestically in it's pocket and even 'LIONSGATE' has already lined up the sequels for 2013 so it's anticipation is on a high.
There are other successful franchises also who have picked their dates like Transformers , X-Men and The LOTR.
So now 2013 is about to pack-up and 2014 is knocking on the box-office here is a list that notes down the best BOLLYWOOD movies of 2013. I always expected Aamir Khan's 'DHOOM-3' to top this list but it was a damp-squib. Unlike the biggies the small budget movies had meaning and quality as always. It is quite difficult to comprehend why BOLLYWOOD always fails to blend quality with quantity . Movies like 3-idiots , My Name Is Khan , Jab Tak Hai Jaan , Talaash have shown in the years that you can keep both of them and still hit the bull's eye .
While HOLLYWOOD seems tedious with its work BOLLYWOOD gives the audience something to relax upon ,a soothing effect you can say. A HOLLYWOOD movie can be best attributed to one or at best two genres but BOLLYWOOD movies nowadays are mixing up many genres to squeeze out the best one - MASALA genre. Here are the best.
In the year 2013 , it was 'Aamir Khan's' "DHOOM-3" that was the most anticipated and as usual it was again the 'KHANs'. 'Shahrukh' broke many records with his one of the most entertaining film "CHENNAI EXPRESS". The 'Kapoor's' clan 'Hero' also delivered a 'All-Time-Blockbuster' with his "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani". Let's see what this year awaits!
The year '2012' was of "KHANS" mainly but this year it won't be solely restricted to "KHANS" or "Kumar" because 'BOLLYWOOD' has got new talents and soon-to-be superstars on the go.With this year's first big film 'Race-2' to the year's last big film 'DHOOM-3' , I hope 'Bollywood' mints more than the previous year. With no 'Salman Khan' releases it seems that this year's burden has landed upon the other Khans- SRK and Aamir to a certain extent Saif but there are not only 'Khans' , 'Kumar' is there 'Roshan' is also there but the 'X-factor' that lies and keeps alluding everyone as the dormant volcano is the 'BOLLYWOOD's' biggest clan - 'The Kapoors'- "Ranbir Kapoor". May the best win.Amen!
A man from a middle-class family of Delhi comes to 'Mumbai' with some dreams! A dream to rule , a dream to conquer , a dream to make it big , bigger and so on. He is the richest film-star in 'BOLLYWOOD' ,the first to enter the 'TOP 200 RICHEST of BOLLYWOOD'. His palace is called 'MANNAT' ! He owns a 'Kolkata' team , he is embraced by the Germans , he rules our hearts , he rules the box-office. Let's count his best performances .
The year 2012 was one of the glorious in the history of Bollywood by the way it was only in the terms of box-office collections. Actors like Salman Khan,Akshay Kumar burned the silver screens with their gravity defying stunts and cheap one-liners.Logic was totally killed and forgot.Many path-breaking movies like 'Vicky Donor','Gangs of Wasseypur', 'Kahaani' were outstanding but were not like the biggies in the money league.Towards the end Aamir Khan gave us a very special movie and as usual in the end the moolah was again claimed by the 'Hunk' with again his most loved character 'Chulbul Pandey'.But I wish the upcoming year will be a more profitable year but the films should also have a good story and logic.In the past years only 'Dhoom-Dhadaka' films have stolen the limelight.
This list contains the name of Bollywood films that deserved to be flop but somehow were success in the box-office. The reasons may be that people that is the audience don't want anything new or simply because now we are loving no-brainers. In these recent years there is abuzz for the 100-crore club. People in the showbiz have forgotten that the literacy rate in INDIA is increasing so they are making crap with some dance and songs and gravity-defying stunts to make moolah. But it is high time to stop this nonsense. But please note that I'm talking about recent movies.
What's a remake ? The answer never comes in a concrete form to your senses. Even though you blurt it out like a five year old reciting the tables(multiplication) but still you can't comprehend it properly. It's just not merely repeating the film but to maintain it's sanctity as well. It's not a cut and paste but a moulding an antique which perhaps lacks lustre or it may not, but you still have the intuition that you may make it more worthy than its predecessor. It's not a run-of-the-mill type work that you are making again , it's an already tasted formula or a recipe , so you may yourself like a 'duck to water' but actually you are a 'square peg to a round hole' because you are tying to get in a place or a slot that has been made out by a fellow-worker and you are trying to mongrelize. These flicks are those who comes in the later category.
I am a follower of Hollywood and Bollywood , so I'm gonna restrict myself to those.
The movies I'm listing now are the ones that will disturb you visually and mentally .It may be due to the brutality in violence , sex or crude humour but they will surely pump your adrenaline or testosterone . It may be both. I personally experienced , but that doesn't mean that all these are only soft-core porn. Some of these are really outstanding, but they are mind-f@#king.
These enlisted movies are quite good. They have that novelty, the content that must have hit the bull's eye but in the INDIAN market movies couldn't make it big and somehow creeped to their end.
These movies stood out from the crowd owing to their unique concept and inspired many others in the same genre
With that in mind though, predicting the Oscars isn’t a total crapshoot. The Academy has fairly predictable tastes which can lead to some good educated guesses, even at this early stage of the game. Inevitably though, some prestige bubbles will burst, while other diamonds in the rough will seemingly come out of nowhere, making it an unassailable fact that these lists will vary a great deal as the year goes on.
These fellas might have delivered blockbusters or flops but they are equally responsible for the degradation of BOLLYWOOD.
We often complain others to take a break from their monotonous or cyclic life and enjoy an abstemious de-tour. And something really replied to our request and tried to mitigate our loss that we have suffered while rat-racing with this blood-sucking world, quite a Hoover right. So our messiah is “Hollywood”, who made a portal for our escape from this bestial reality to a whole new world where you enjoy certain things against the rules , sometimes even gravity and this imperative genre was termed as ‘sci-fi’ that is science-fiction.
I don't know what to say . All I can say is that I'm a crime film lover with gruesome action and dialogues like a 'Tarantino' film.Check out this list and give your views.
So far most of these movies are already released but still some are on the pipeline. So this list is one of my assumption and I hope that I'm correct. The previous year was really a money-minting year . But it was one of the worst year in terms of quality. Hope this year ends well.
This list includes the movies which may win the "Academy Award for Best Picture".
