Best Films of 2014

2014 FILMS

2013 was a great year for film. We had ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, ‘Blue Is the Warmest Color’ and ‘Before Midnight’.

The same goes to 2014. It was the year Marvel started making better films. It was the year Wes Anderson created another masterpiece. It was the year where we had a beautiful film about Legos. And much more.
I tried really hard to list my top fifteen (even twenty) films of 2014, but there were too many great films to list.
You’ll find my favorite films in this list, in alphabetical order, alongside my favorite actors, director, score, and the honorable mentions.

Note: I made this last two weeks before the Oscars nominations. I’m glad Marion Cotillard has been nominated, but I’m also sad for Nightcrawler and The Lego Movie getting snubbed.
