A few days late but here are my top 10 movies of 2014! Apologies to Birdman for not being able to view it. Really want to watch that one. Honorable Mentions: Into the Woods, The Wind Rises, Foxcatcher, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Edge of Tomorrow, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Creepy, thrilling, and so captivating.
9. The Grand Budapest Hotel
Wes Anderson's styling in storytelling is as fascinating as it is recognizable here.
A true achievement in filmmaking and an incredibly intimate journey.
Super cool concept fleshed out by a story of revolution and evolution.
6. Guardians of the Galaxy
Superhero movie with humor and heart to go along with the amazing action of Marvel. Also, best end credits scene: Baby Groot!
5. How to Train Your Dragon 2
Much like the original, packs an emotional punch. Still love the flying sequences with Hiccup and Toothless.
4. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The 007 of Marvel movies, Winter Soldier not only exhilarated with action and political drama, it single handedly turned around the TV series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Epic in scale, lengthy in time, the heart of the story, a father and daughter's relationship, inspires and brings lofty ideas back to the center of it all.
2. Big Hero 6
Surprisingly touching and incredible animation, we're introduced to the latest Disney character to sweep the world: Baymax! (Ba-la-la-la-la)
1. The LEGO Movie
Incredibly clever, visually dazzling, and transcendent. This movie earned top honors by being the most re-watchable of all this year. If there's one movie you have time for, this is the one. SPACESHIP!
