5 Thriller Movies to WATCH

Updated on November 25, 2015

Are You a Movie Fanatic? If yes,

Hugs !

If no, No issues, I am.. and particularly if the genre is Thrill !

Thrilling as the word itself suggests is indeed thrilling in itself. Motion pictures are off many genres now a days with drama, musical, comedy, horror, biographic and thrilling are a few to name. Here in my list i suggest 5 off the best movies in the category of THRILL. I am sure you will not be disappointed after watching any of these.

Will love to see your feedback after reading my reviews and actually watching the movie yourself. You may not agree with me but most of these 5 are great enough i tell you. I am pretty sure you are going to like all of the under mentioned. These really have something interesting for you. They are all selected lot. Suspense is the hallmark of any movie as I think. A predictable movie is like a straight road, where as the on the other hand thrill remains the element of interest for all viewers to just stick to their bed or chairs and have their eyes on screens.

No Country for Old Men (2007)

Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (Coen Brothers) this is a modern cowboy masterclass. The villain has executed his role perfectly putting his heart out in the film, while Tommy Lee Jeans is awsome as ever.

Violence and mayhem ensue after a hunter stumbles upon a drug deal gone wrong and more than two million dollars in cash near the Rio Grande. The transponder was the best thing for me as a matter of fact i need not to mention more spoilers. Just have a glance a the wonderful directing, production and acting. I am sure you will be convinced.

I have seriously become a Javier Bardem fan after watching this picture. Josh Brolin was a perfect piece of cast in No Country for old men because in a way he has many personal colors. He's one of us and we could put ourselves in his shoes like the common. I heard people old enough to have seen Hitchcock's "Psycho" in the theaters and what glued them to the screen was their own fear. Well, that's what I've experienced here. Javier Bardem is superb, considering that he's the reason for the fear. He carries a human/inhuman kind of strength and we know he'll get us, sooner or later and if we consider the ending of the film, he might still do. Worthy Oscar winners, all of it and all of them. The villainous Javier is the star as he is ruthless and relentless, loved to be hated, watchable and yet unseen in some scenes and fantastic in one word.

There will be Blood (2007)

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, A nominee of 5 Oscars, this saga is filled with long silent moments of tension that take place in a cinematic canvas and an actor's head. DDL (Daniel Day Lewis) is awsome.

Even the deaf boy is fantastic as his expressions say it all. The ending might surprise a big deal as the movie is a Topsy curvy ride. I have all my plaudits for the performance of DDL.

A story of family, religion, hatred, oil and madness, focusing on a turn-of-the-century prospector in the early days of the business. Oil wells and love for his son, which one is preferable ? DDL is all along a feast and treat to watch. The dialogues are few but engraved into the movie as suitable as the should be. Cinemetography and Camera action are very appreciating.For all this watch it today for the brilliance of Daniel Day Lewis in particular and Paul Thomas in general.

#3

Mulholland Drive (2001)

Directed by David Lynch, A nominee of 4 Oscars, tarring Naomi Watts, The theme of the story, is a negatively buily environment of a Hollywood actress and what happens to her, a blink to especially those whose dreams of being an actor are crushed.

Wow, what a strange ending of the film. you have to catch every bit of it. It's a David Lynch movie so it's no surprise that it is weird and greatly directed and acted upon too. Naomi Watts delivers a wonderfully crafted performance. David Lynch gives it a fine touch.

Erotic yet powerful performances by the lead actresses have elated the standard of this movie. Combined with great direction and story telling, it is really a worth watching picture.


David Lynch and Naomi Watts. you have to watch it and UNDERSTAND it

Inside Man (2001)

Directed by Spike Lee, A nominee of 2 Oscars, starring a combo of Denzel Washington and Clive Owen. A police detective (Jodie Foster the ever green), a bank robber, and a high-power broker enter high-stakes negotiations after the criminal's brilliant feast of crime spirals into a deep hostage.

It's curious to see Spike Lee do a straight caper movie. The movie is not absent Lee's usual politics, though there are exceptional glimpses of his sense. Denzel Washington and Clive Owen make it a wonderful and scorching on screen fiasco. Jodie Foster is as always witty, crafty and gritty with her intelligently acted scenes. You have to watch it dear.

Watch it once, you may not understand it, Watch it twice and you surely will love it.

# 1 The Score (2001)


Directed by Frank OZ, the Prime time Emmy winner THE SCORE deals about an aging thief hoping to retire and live off his illegal wealth when a young kid convinces him into doing one last heist. The heist of his LIFE AND DEATH. Who succeeds and who betrays? You have to watch and tell me.

The Score is an underrated movie. It starrs Robert DeNiro, Edward Norton and the GODFATHER...None other but MARLON BRANDO. A pretty small role but he has given his heart out for even this one. It desreves on my number one list.

It's curious to see Spike Lee do a straight caper movie. The movie is absent Lee's usual politics, though there are occasional glimpses of his sensibilities. At one point a Sikh has his turban taken away and complains at ends how Sikhs are not Arabs and he's tired of getting harassed all the time.

ADDITIONAL MOVIES

Well most of you may not agree with the movies in the above mentioned TOP 5. I will appreciate candid opinions being a great movie fan. Some other thrilling movies include FARGO, TITANIC and THE TOURIST.

    The score is a great movie. You have to watch it till the end. Any how the end is a bit unexpected still the movie as a whole is a supreme package. Have you seen SILENCE OF THE LAMBS?
