The Raid 2
Gareth Evans proves that he is operating at the top echelon of not merely action filmmakers, but filmmakers, period, advancing his preferred genre to a well-rounded pinnacle as generous with engrossing character and story as it is with adrenalized excitement and exhilaration.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
A solid example of meat-and-potatoes popcorn filmmaking--befitting that most meat-and-potatoes of comic book heroes.
All the flashy digital bells and whistles one would equate with such a scenario are kept at a startling minimum--but such a back-to-basics approach thus forces one to pay attention to the actual substance of the story and characters.
Gulaab Gang (Pink Gang)
Any celebration of women's brains gets lost in the glorification of their brawn.
Such an appealing heroine makes it easy for anyone, existing fan or not, to be entertained by this yarn.
Seemingly disparate elements go on to organically weave together into a coherent whole as a buddy/action/crime dramedy, with some exuberant production numbers as infectious icing on the proverbial cake.
With Aamir Khan's wide spectrum of talents and the creative energy he inspires in all around him on full, irresistibly entertaining display, audiences around the world will truly experience the title's English translation--a blast.
The Wolf of Wall Street
No less than a brazenly brash and unabashed middle finger to any and all genteel expectations and sensibilities.
The Pavement Psychologist
Whatever the piece may ultimately lack in substantive story, it definitely compensates in character, both in the literal sense of the solid work writer-director Idris Elba coaxes from the whole cast and in the already distinctive personality of his still-nascent filmmaking voice, which promises to only polish and sharpen right along with his skill on subsequent projects.
