50 movies you have to see in your lifetime There are movies, and then there are the movies that change your life. Some just have the power to do that. Whether they’re visually arresting thrillers, profoundly relatable indies, campy horror flicks that defined an era, high school comedies that spoke to our inner teenager or glorious dreamscapes we wanted to climb inside and nest in forever, movies are great, big, colorful feeling-monsters. Because we believe in the power of movies at Hello Giggles and we also believe in doing that annoying thing when someone hasn’t seen a particular movie we loved (“Wait, you’re telling me you’ve NEVER seen The Godfather?”), we decided it was high time we shut the front door and made up a definitive list of films we couldn’t live with out. 1.

The 10 Best Marion Cotillard Movies You Need To Watch Parisian actress Marion Cotillard was practically an unknown to American audiences when she won hearts, minds and a well-deserving Oscar for her performance as legendary French singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose.

So much so that, when compiling her 10 best performances in my opinion, I ended up with five films spoken in her native tongue. A few of them are not as well-known as they should be, so there’s an opportunity here to find true gems from the very unique French cinema. Then again, Marion is always so damn good in everything that any of these films would be a wise choice if you haven’t watched them. Even when the movie’s not a masterpiece, her presence elevates it at least a little.

The many-splendored regions of the introvert’s heart include the Land of Self-Checkout Lanes (a miraculous invention, probably dreamed up by an introvert who dreaded small talk with salespeople), to which introverts travel only when their shopping can’t be done in the Tower of Online Ordering.

Norman Cook 25 UNDERVIEWED BOLLYWOOD FILMS THAT YOU SHOULD WATCH - LifeStyler Every year we flock to multiplexes to especially during Eid, Diwali or Christmas to catch our favourite stars do the clichéd slapstick formula movies like Rowdy Rathore, Happy New Year, Kick and Jai Ho (Bhai’s list is endless), over and over again. They never disappoint the masses because they deliver exactly what they promise – scriptless masala movies! To be honest, there’s no dearth of quality movies in Bollywood, as every now and then, some directors make quality cinema in order to bring the sanity back in your life. It’s just that we don’t get to hear much about them because they can’t generally afford the marketing gimmicks which are adopted by mainstream commercial movies.
