2014 Movies


Another year in film has passed. For me, 2014 was a decent year. I need to go back and watch some of the movies I missed before I can get a clear feeling on the year as a whole.

In this post I have two lists, one highlighting my favorite movies that I did see and the last one is movies I am still planning on watching. After reading my list feel free to add some suggestions in the comments section below.

My 2014 favorites

The Drop

I was hooked as soon as I heard it was James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy in a crime drama.

I Wish I Was Here

A beautiful film that was funded on Kickstarter and it was created from the mind of Zach Braff.

Million Dollar Arm

Jon Hamm and baseball; need I say more?

Guardians of the Galaxy

Hands down the best comic book movie of the year!
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The best of the series so far!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier

My favorite Captain American movie to date.
Gone Girl

One of the best movies of the year! I still get chills just thinking about it.

This Is Where I Leave You
A very smart and funny movie.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

I still wish Peter Jackson would have stuck with just making one great movie, but this final installment was entertaining to watch.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

I am sure I will enjoy part 2 more, but this was a nice start to the end of the trilogy.
The Judge

Two great actors in this courtroom drama.
The Monuments Men

A fascinating historical story told in this very good movie.
X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men and time travel; enough said.


A tragic story unfolds in this very good biopic.
Life Itself

A documentary about the great Roger Ebert. A must see for all film lovers!

The creep story done to perfection due to the amazing performance of Jake Gyllenhaal.
