12. In The Valley Of Elah (2007)
Hank Deerfield investigates the mysterious death of his son, who came back from tour duty after he finds his body. Detective Emily Sanders assists Hank in his search for the truth behind his boy’s death. Along the way, they discover the horror and inhumane entities that ensnared the young boy. ‘In the Valley of Elah’ battles the strong emotional grip of its subject matter to present an engrossing and painful tale about sorrow and loss. Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron put in commendable lead performances to drive this war-centric drama. The film puts forth beckoning questions about the slipping military culture and seeks to give a timely reminder for the abusers who misuse their powers.
11. Deadpool 2 (2018)
Brolin’s romance with the Marvel Universe continues with this gut-wrenchingly funny film that finally proves Ryan Reynolds is the ‘Daniel Day-Lewis of comedians’. Much like its predecessor, ‘Deadpool 2’ strikes a perfect balance between humor and breath-taking gory action to even out a superb movie led enviously by its charming star. Cable is yet another in Marvel’s new-found line of engaging and relatable villains. All in all, a movie that definitely won’t make you say “I don’t feel so well”.
