Your Top 10 of 2014

Now that we're into December, I figure it's a good time to put up this thread.

As of right now, my Top 10 would be:

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Nightcrawler
Guardians of the Galaxy
Birdman
Whiplash
Gone Girl
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Edge of Tomorrow
Joe
Interstellar


I figure any of the above could make their way into my Top 10.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

There already is this thread:

What is your favorite film of 2014 so far?

(although its title was specifically just asking for only one favorite film, but most people posted a list of films instead)

Sorry, not the same. There's always an official "list your top movies of _____" thread posted at the end of every year, so this is justified.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

Ah, damn. I haven't really paid enough attention to make a true Top 10 for the year.

I think Force Majeure is my #1 at this point. Followed by The Raid 2... and some others. Nightcrawler was fantastic. There's many more, I'm sure. I'll use this as a placeholder for my list after I have some time to think about it.

edit: list starting now...

#1: Force Majeure
#2: Nightcrawler

plus these eight, in no order:
Boyhood
Obvious Child
The Editor
Gone Girl
The Sacrament
Canopy
Blue Ruin
The Raid 2

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

Chef - Completely implausible, over the top optimistic, and probably the best "feel good" movie of the decade for me.
Coherence - Just an extremely fun low budget movie
The Grand Budapest Hotel - Wes Anderson has been building to this for a while, I loved it but now I want to see him do something different.
Cheap Thrills - Another extremely fun low budget movie
Guardians of the Galaxy - Easily the best MCU movie thus far
Interstellar - Heavily, heavily flawed, but it's the first Nolan movie to have an actual sense of wonder to it and has stuck with me for a month now.

Still have a ridiculous number of movies to get through though (St. Vincent, Gone Girl, Nightcrawler, Whiplash, Birdman, Boyhood, The Railway Man, Inherent Vice, John Wick, The Hobbit, Exodus, American Sniper, Unbroken, Still Alice, Foxcatcher, Fury, The Interview, etc; )

Fair enough. New threads are fine with me, but the similar earlier thread just needed a mention here (especially for someone like me who needed to go back to it to retrieve the list I put there so I wouldn't have to write a new one here )

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

My Top 10 for 2014 (so far)

(1) Gone Girl

(2) The Grand Budapest Hotel

(3) Edge of Tomorrow (aka the better title of Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow)

(4) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

(5) Guardians of the Galaxy

(6) Captain America: The Winter Soldier

(7) Oculus (actually released in 2014)

(8) X-Men: Days of Future Past

(9) Jodorowsky's Dune

(10) Zero Theorem

(this list and its order may shift as I see new films or re-watch any of these)

[NOTE: Oculus actually was a 2014 theatrical release despite having a single showing at a 2013 film festival, hence why IMDB calls it a "2013" movie.]


Honorable mentions that didn't make my top-10 list (in alphabetical order):
Birdman , Godzilla (2014) , The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies , Interstellar , The Interview , John Wick , Mockingjay Part 1

Most overrated movie of the year (IMO):
Snowpiercer (the single dumbest movie I saw all year - here's a review that I think summarizes this incredibly idiotic film very well - and the fact that this brain-insultingly stupid sci-fi movie is well over 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes is why I call it the most overrated movie of the year.)

Worst remake or reboot of the year (IMO):
Robocop (this remake manages to completely miss the dark satirical nature of the original and ends up being an action movie that's actually dull to watch.)

And my need-to-see list (in alphabetical order):
Boyhood , Chef , Citizenfour , Force Majeure , The Imitation Game , Inherent Vice , Into The Woods , The Lego Movie , Life Itself , Locke , Lucy , Nightcrawler , Only Lovers Left Alive , The Raid 2 , The Tale of The Princess Kaguya (technically a 2013 release but that was only in Japan and it didn't get a U.S. release until 2014) , Under the Skin , Venus in Fur , Whiplash , The Wind Rises

Speaking of Oculus, it was released on Netflix streaming today. Worth checking out for genre fans

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

Still films I haven't seen as yet (like Foxcatcher) but here is my list so far: (lots of "big" titles this year, been a fantastic year for them).

1. X-Men: DOFP
2. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
3. Guardians of the Galaxy
4. Birdman
5. Captain America: Winter Soldier
6. The Raid 2
7. Gone Girl
8. Edge of Tomorrow
9. The LEGO Movie

I have Whiplash, Enemy and Boyhood for the more "artsy" films in Top 20 but they don't make the cut, so sorry.

Re: Your Top 10 of 2014

To date:

The Grand Budapest Hotel
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Captain America: The Winter Solider
Edge of Tomorrow
Gone Girl
Life Itself
Interstellar
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Lego Movie
Chef


Still need to see:
Mockingjay, Part I
Lucy
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Birdman
...and a number of other independent/smaller films that are under awards consideration.


This year had a surprisingly good showing for "tentpole" titles that turned out to be really good movies. I rarely have so many "mainstream" films in my top 10. Regardless, Grand Budapest Hotel is head and shoulders above the rest...and I'm not even an Anderson fan (or at least haven't been much of one until this year).
