Blog: Grosse Point Geek – Best & Worst of 2014… so far (June 19th 2014)

Best Films Of 2014… So Far:

1. Wolf Of Wall Street (brilliant)
2. Dallas Buyers Club (utterly amazing)
3. Captain America Winter Solider (up there with Iron Man and The Avengers as one of Marvel’s best)
4. Godzilla (The best monster movie since Jurassic Park – what it lacks  in good human characters is more than made up for by Gareth Edwards’ outstanding directing talents)
5. Edge Of Tomorrow (very very good indeed)

Honourable Mentions:

300 Rise Of An Empire (good fun), Maleficent (Angelina is incredible in this), Lone Survivor (top notch action), Noah (odd but dammed good), The Raid 2 (slow in places, but the last 20 minutes contain some of the greatest action scenes of all time), Pompeii (top movie -read my review) Jack Ryan (relentlessly exciting plus Pine, Knightley and Costner are very good)

 

Worst Films Of 2014… So Far:

1. The Legend Of Hercules (I’m still reeling rom this one  – so gob smackingly bad it makes Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space look positively Oscar worthy by comparison)
2. Non Stop (the title is a contradiction in terms)
3. 47 Ronin (very poor)
4. 3 Days to Kill (boring boring boring)
5. The Monuments Men (criminally wasted opportunity – George’s worst since Ocean’s 12)
6. Amazing Spiderman 2 (bleedin’ awful)

Most Over hyped film on 2014
Snowpiercer – good but cant see what all the fuss was about – and just this once maybe the Weinstein’s were right to ask for a re-edit)


Dis-Honourable Mentions
:
Robocop,  X Men Days Of Future Past , Transcendence
Best films seen this year from 2013:
Warm Bodies, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty


2014 – Most anticipated:
