Obviously loving your own countries cinema is a prerequisite for this " critic" . Really Rocky IV( the worse of the Rocky movies), Inception , The Social Network ( I don't know what to say about this dog of a film), and Jaws (great scare flick but that is all. As for Avatar extremely pretty film but I have seen it twice. A film that is great is something that you will see over and over. The Godfather is one. But that was number 3 on my list. The Godfather II and Citizen Kane are my number 1 and 2. At least I can say thanks for turning me onto Mother India. I will definitely check it out. By the way gangs of wasseypur great just not top
