Portrait

2014 in film

Readers may recall that I only saw four new films in 2013. This year I saw a much more normal ten! Nice job, shmoo.

I should also note that in my 2013 entry I listed 6 films released in 2013 that I had not yet seen, but wanted to see. Well, I have now seen them all (as well as the one remaining 2012 release that I hadn't yet seen a year ago).

But enough about 2013, here are the ten films released in 2014 that I've seen, in approximate ranked order:

  1. The Imitation Game

  2. Guardians of the Galaxy

  3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  4. The Grand Budapest Hotel

  5. X-Men: Days of Future Past

  6. Birdman

  7. The Muppets Most Wanted

  8. The Lego Movie

  9. Amazing Spider-Man 2

  10. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (I actually saw this one in 2015, shhh)

This is a pretty good list. I found it hard to differentiate between #2-5 but the sheer joy of Guardians of the Galaxy made it win out in the end.

I still want/need to see The Theory of Everything, Interstellar, and Into the Woods.
