My best of 2014

by Elephants_Gerald
No one cares about yet another year-end list, but they’re fun. This was a really lackluster year for movies. Really shameful compared to the cornucopia of 2013. But with that being said, there are at least a dozen more movies I’m trying to see before I can make a final judgment about this year. So, obviously, work in progress. Will try to review everything too. The following is a list of what I plan on seeing very soon: - Selma X - Inherent Vice X - The Guest X - Finding Vivian Maier - Calvary - Ida X - We Are The Best! X - Leviathan X - Two Days, One Night (prequel to Six Days, Sevens Nights?) X - Only Lovers Left Alive X - Listen Up Philip… Read more

- Selma X
- Inherent Vice X
- The Guest X
- Finding Vivian Maier
- Calvary
- Ida X
- We Are The Best! X
- Leviathan X
- Two Days, One Night (prequel to Six Days, Sevens Nights?) X
- Only Lovers Left Alive X
- Listen Up Philip X
- Bird People X
- The Strange Little Cat X
- The Missing Picture
- Nymphomaniac
- Night Moves
- The Rover
- Mr. Turner
- Edge of Tomorrow
- Stranger by the Lake
- Love Is Strange X
- Citizenfour
- The Double X
- The Tale of Princess Kaguya
- Big Hero 6
- Goodbye to Language 3D X
- Ernest and Celestine
- I may also bite the bullet and eventually see: Foxcatcher, The Theory of Everything, Wild, The Imitation Game, Interstellar, etc.

Note the exclusion of The Grand Budapest Hotel, which sucked. Same with Birdman. No one cares but Coldwater sucked a major one as well.

So clearly, this is not the most informed list. But let’s have some fun! (Note: The inclusion of 14 movies was accidental. That’s literally just the number of films I enjoyed this year. Maybe I’ll try to keep it 14 when I start watching more).
