My Favorite Movies of 2014

Quick disclaimer: I have not watched every movie released in 2014, obviously. This is a Top 10 list of the movies that I have seen. Also note that throughout the year, I’ve kept a record of every movie that I’ve watched this year (grand total was 100 – yes, a nice round number) and left a short, one to three sentence review of the movie. I’ve included those here as well. All ten are worth seeing, if you haven’t seen them already.

10. Blue Ruin

Dwight, gentle man on a vengeful rampage. The most non-Coen, Coen movie. A wonderful surprise of a film.

9. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Those eyes at the end were haunting. My new favorite of the entire Planet of the Apes series.

8. The Babadook

Wow, such a stressful movie. Once you become aware of the Babadook, consider yourself fucked. And by the way, that little boy can act.
