181 Jatt & Juliet 2

Funniest film ever seen. I think that this movie should be in the top tens. I also request Hollywood to make the English version if this super hit Punjabi or shall I say Indian movie

182 The Hunt V 2 Comments
183 Great Expectations

I think at this point we have to get beyond the David Lean adaptation. This one has Helena Bonham Carter being Miss Havisham

184 Drishyam

Best movie of the decade

185 Test
186 Sicko

Most important movie ever! Could save your Ass! Ok.

187 R.I.P.D.
188 Sunshine On Leith

Once upon a time (mostly in the 1960s) musicals were the big tentpole movies for studios. They were everywhere; West Side Story, The Music Man, My Fair Lady, Oliver and so on to the point that musicals fell out of favour (thanks a lot Easy Rider).

Ironically in an age of superheroes, giant monsters and robots, teen fiction and rowdy comedies, it was refreshing to see a feel good musical come out (in the UK) in 2013.

Sunshine on Leith, while not as visually stunning as the big blockbusters, will actually hold up a lot better than the likes of Pacific Rim.

Sunshine on Leith shows the likes of Pitch Perfect and Mamma Mia just how to do a jukebox musical properly.

Keep a look out for a cameo from Craig and Charlie Reid aka The Proclaimers walking out of a pub

Cynics out there will likely refer to Sunshine on Leith as McMamma Mia. This does for the Proclaimers songbook what Mamma Mia did for the ABBA songbook.

If you know anything about The Proclaimers you could go "ok someone will go to America to send back a letter (Letter from America) someone will be on a journey from misery to happiness (I'm on my Way), someone will be called (Oh Jean) who probably (Should have been Loved) and someone will promist to walk (500 miles). It doesn't matter about predictability because you'll be smiling throughout and maybe singing along to 500 Miles.

The last time a British musical was this heartwarming was Oliver! And that was back in the late 60s.

The feel-good movie of 2013. Or at least as far as the British are concerned.
