Top 10 films of 2014

It’s starting to feel like these lists come round unsettlingly fast. Too darn often for my liking. However, it’s been a good year for those that love cinema. Some great stuff has hit the silver (or, increasingly, digital) screen over the last twelve months. Here’s my pick, from my top ten (you have to be ruthless) to ones on my ‘to watch’ list.

  1. Not trying to be a jerk, but you have 12 movies in your top 10. That said, I’ve seen five of them. I love Her, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I’m rather lukewarm on The Grand Budapest Hotel, and didn’t like Dallas Buyers Club.

    I really like a few of the films on your to watch list. I am particularly fond of The Raid 2, Under the Skin, 12 Years a Slave, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hope you get to see them soon.
