Top 10 Best Movies of 2014
In hindsight, I am so glad I went into this movie with ZERO expectations. It was pure JOY. The most fun I have had at a theater, maybe, ever. I was just not expecting how irreverent and upbeat it was while still remaining so cool and engrossing. Casting Pratt was a master stroke but every character was interesting in their way. From Yondu and his whistling arrow to Ronan and his antagonist angst, they were all a hoot to watch and get to know. In the end, the comedy and chemistry between the characters really make this movie special. How can you not love what they were able to do with the fully CGI creations of Rocket and the tree who is the heart of the movie?! WE ARE GROOT!
This movie was just fantastic. I enjoyed this movie so much it was so funny, it had amazing action scenes, and an amazing cast and characters. Chris Pratt as Star lord was just perfect, who else for granita but Zoe Saldana, Dave did a great job as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot was just perfect, and Bradly Cooper as Rocket was just 100% fantastic. This is definitely not one of your average marvel movies, the best one I've seen in a long time, better than avengers, this movie was just amazing.
Damn it. This was a great movie that helped boost the 2014 movie year. The other movies I saw were How to Train You Dragon 2, Heaven is for Real, Captain America The Winter Soldier, Godzilla, The Lego Movie, Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, Xmen Future Past, The Amazing Spiderman, Boxtrolls and Guardians of The Galaxy. Here are my rankings of these movies:
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
2. Captain America The Winter Soldier
3. Xmen: Future Past
4. Hobbit Battle of Five Armies
5. The Amazing Spiderman
7. The Lego Movie
8. Heaven is for Real
9. How to Train Your Dragon 2
10. Mr. Peabody and Sherman
I recommend not seeing Boxtrolls, the movie was stupid and weird. But all the other ones I enjoyed. Mr. Peabody and Sherman was sometimes ok and sometimes good.
This is my favorite movie of all time! My best friend and I saw this together, and it was fabulous! The mix of action and comedy and Chris Pratt is the greatest combination ever! All the characters are kickass and it's even a marvel movie! Chris Pratt, Star-Lord, is actually a pretty good guy to, he went to a children's hospital as Star-Lord and said hi to the kids. So what he lost a bet and had to do it, he was smiling in all of the pictures and he even said he enjoyed it!
Without a doubt, the best movie Marvel has released in years - it even tops the avengers! An awesome movie that is filled with action, drama, character development and plenty of suspense! A thriller worth seeing a few times over!
Marvel is red hot right about now and 2014 was no exception. From Marvel's deal with Walt Disney Pictures alone Marvel had Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6. Then there was Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Shouldn't be so low. I loved Lego and GotG and Interstellar, but this is right up there with them as best of 2014. I don't know anyone who doesn't like this movie; it totally changed up the Marvel universe in a new and exciting way. There's really no downside
This should not be behind the Toy Story wannabe with an annoying song, a hodgepodge of stupid jokes, and a way too overdone plot.
This is by far my favorite movie of all time! I really didn't think much of it from the first trailer, but this movie is amazing! Great characters, great animation, and its very funny! Even if you're an adult, this isn't something you want to miss!
Totally loved this movie! I was determined not to like it at first (I'm a real wimp when it come to new movies), but it had me laughing on the first line, "He is coming. Cover your butt." I died! Thumbs up for Emmet and the gang!
This movie brought me my favourite song. This movie is also perfect for boys who like to play with their Lego blocks. The Lego Movie helps kids improve their imaginations, and makes them laugh themselves silly!
Fantastic voice acting, incredible animation, awesome soundtrack (see what I did there? ), laugh-out-loud humor, and very impressive plot. This is definitely my favorite movie of 2014 so far.
This was a great year for movies and I saw every movie on the top 10 except for Fault in our Stars and even thought each of these movies were awesome, no film did I have a better experience watching then this. I was never a fan of the X Men films before this, and watching this the first time, I was so surprised by how good it was and how much I cared about the characters. Great movie!
An explosive burst of awesomeness! It manages to balance a great script with gorgeous special effects perfectly, which makes up for a highly compelling and entertaining blockbuster. Everyone's on their best and it's an absolute treat watching the character interactions. A marvelous thrill ride from start to finish.
Calling this better than any other movie of the year would be a complete understatement. X-Men: Days of Future Past is, besides The Dark Knight, the greatest superhero movie ever made. Just watch the movie and see for yourself.
Great movie, awesome effects, excellent plot and WOLVERINE! One question though, where the hell was gambit? Why do they add characters I've never heard of like blink and toad, yet they leave out the "Ragin' Cajun"?
Despite the fact that it's a psychological tearjerker, it had blown me away. Wow. Pretty cool stuff. I kind of understand how black holes and wormholes work, just not entirely. Interstellar was thought provoking on why the environment is being effected on Earth and a few brave astronauts find a place to colonize in different moons. There was drought and not enough water to provide crops full of delicious corn and wheat. *laugh* Of course, we see Matthew McConaughey's character as a farm boy turned astronaut leave earth with a few colleagues in a spaceship and there are a few trials they had to face when they get there. I can't tell you what happens when they're on different from from Earth or you'll be disappointed. So to sum it all up, no more spoilers! It was just great, but not the best movie of all time.
Sorry to seem like a Troll but I find it intolerable for this movie to be number 2.
Interstellar was another recent indication that Nolan has in recent years become too confident in his own shtick. The two major issues. It was too long, and It had way too much nonsense.
Video communication across the galaxy only travels one way? When they travel to that planet for 20 earth years and leave the guy behind, he decides not to waste his life in the hibernation thing, but to spend it doing nothing by himself in space? Cooper decides to trust Hathaway's character in picking planets despite all the evidence implies the other planet is more likely to have life; purely because she liked the guy on the other planet better. And this trust comes after her actions resulted in the other crew member dying? Plus she's supposed to be the scientist with the objective viewpoint. And for some reason McConauhey's character isn't rescued from the middle of space and the black hole until his ...more
First movie ever that made me cry openly. I didn't cry at the Boy in the Striped Pajamas, not at the Fault In Our Stars, not at any movie that others considered sad. Just this one. I don't know why, but this movie is so raw and emotional for me, and the music swells and falls silent at just the right moments, instead of those lame movies with music at moments where the audience is groaning inwards because it was so obviously at the wrong time, so it becomes cheesy. I don't know why I would cry at this one, but I'm weird. I absolutely, positively LOVE this movie. Deserves 7 awards, at the very least.
To say that this movie blew me away doesn't do it justice. This is not just my favorite movie of 2014, it's my favorite movie OF ALL TIME. The acting is impeccable, and the plot is So. Darn. GOOD!
The soundtrack is perfect too, falling silent at all the right moments. It's a VERY intense movie, but it's so beautifully... human. I feel like this movie changed me, inspired me. I didn't even know that screenplays could be this good! In other words: no matter what the critics say, INTERSTELLAR is bound to become a classic.
Why do people go for Boyhood, a boring as hell movie, when they could go for an absolute gem like Big Hero 6? Great animation, baymax, the action of a Marvel movie, great voice acting, and the feels! Haven't gotten those feels since The Lion King! Although not my favorite movie of 2014(that would be GOTG, pardon my Marvel fanboyism), this is another masterpiece, just as good as Wreck-it-Ralph in my opinion.
Hiro on the piano, Baymax on the drums, Gogo on the guitar, Honey Lemon on the sax, Jake on the piano and Wasabi-No-Ginger on the turntables, even for perfect Fall Out Boy songs like "Immortals". Need I say more?
Big Hero 6 is number 1 on my list it is the best movie ever created by humans + The Lego Movie is lame my whole family fell asleep during The Lego Movie.
I have a diagnosis for those who don't vote for this: Puberty. It involves mood-swings and an urge to conform to society and claim that you hate Disney.
Absolutely amazing. THAT ENDING left me sweating because of the absolute intensity of it. I loved every second of it. I've seen it three times and I don't look away once. Whenever I blink, I get a little sad because of it. Boyhood and Birdman are the other two films that I think should get first with The Lego Movie not far behind, but this one takes the cake. Absolutely amazing.
Whiplash deserves to be much higher in my opinion! How is it lower than Godzilla and The Maze Runner? Stellar sound mixing, filming, editing and directing, and JK Simmons was amazing, he totally deserved his Oscar. I think Miles Teller should have got more credit to, I think he's an amazing actor. Everything about this movie was wonderful, best movie of 2014 in my opinion!
I love this movie. I love the music because it is amazing. Fletcher was scary the first time, he made his band successful which is amazing. I love Whiplash with Miles Teller from Divergent in it. Miles Teller had trouble with the difference of rushing and dragging the first time, but he worked hard on it, so. Good Movie
Whiplash is, by far, the best film of 2014 and one of the best so far this decade. With it s neat and astounding script,shocking but amazing performances from the entire cast,and amazing direction, especially for Damien Chazelle's first time at the helm of a major Indie film, this 107 minute heart pulsing film will leave you breathless from beginning to end and, by its end, will leave you shocked but absolutely amazed.
Really? Hunger Games at #6? Come on, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was AMAZING! Best CGI EVER, stellar performances by Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman, an awesome plot, and epic action scenes all add up to this amazing film that put the Planet of the Apes franchise back in business. Guardians of the Galaxy was overrated.
Not to mention Andy Serkis' Batman impression as Caesar was cool. Not literally a Batman impression, but if you've seen the movie, you'll get what I mean...
I loved the Hobbit movie almost as much as this, but decided on Planet of The Apes 2 because of how original it is--yes I said is, it's original. The movie has nearly nothing to do with the old movies and has a much different tone than the first movie in the reboot series.
A great big step from its previous film, giving me the same feeling I got after The dark knight and avengers. Everything was so fleshed out and made with such care that you felt for the apes and the humans which caused a problem for which side you hope wins
Best film of the decade! One of the best films I've ever seen and that's rare because most films nowadays are politic driven slow films, or over the top action films starring 60 year olds. It was like an adult version of the lion king amazing!
The Lego Movie is good, but not as good as this. This is the better of the Hunger Games movies because more action scenes and amazing acting from Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen. )
And the Hanging Tree was on point!
Wow, Just wow. It was... depressing. I don't know if I like it or not. I usually am not a big fan of intense movies like that, but this I have to vote for. Amazing movie, great plot, etc. My favorite movie is the 1st one, but still, well done.
I almost voted for The Lego Movie because it had Legos in it, but I decided The Hunger Games because well its awesome, well I guess the same goes with The Lego Movie, but The Hunger Games have Peeta in it. How can The Lego Movie beat it.
Wow I usually don't get this excited but WOW I swore I was gonna die it was so INTENSE! Like when prim went to save buttercup my hart STOPPED. and poor peeta... peeta was always my favorite and seeing hi like that crushed me.
This film was garbage. I gave it a 2.5/5 because it uses plot contrivances that have already been seen in EVERY single Lord of the Rings or Hobbit film to date. I was very disappointed in what should've been an epic showdown. Also, any dwarf that had any backstory whatsoever, ended up getting killed off. Also, the possibility of them even surviving all of that was ridiculous. The king Dwarf Oakenshield also got really annoying with the terrible script he was personally handed, repeating himself over and over and OVER again! Finally, don't even get me on the part where Gandalf is cleaning out his weed pipe. I just don't even.
I guess I'm biased because I'm from New Zealand (No, this movie did NOT come from Hollywood) But this movie took my breath away. Superior to it's predecessors in every way, this movie truly captures the enticing magic of the even more amazing Lord of the Rings trilogy in a strange, morbidly epic fashion.
I cried twice just in the last 15 minutes before the credits. This movie may just be an ending to the trilogy but it's an action-packed, emotional, and epic finale. The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings saga is henseforth the best movie franchise ever filmed.
Other honorable mentions:
Guardians of the Galaxy
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Edge of Tomorrow (or "Live. Die. Repeat." whatever)
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Transformers: Age of Extinction
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
The Legend of Hercules
I loved this movie maybe not as much as the previous two but it was still good. Never read the books so I never expected Smaug to be killed so early in the movie I thought that would be the final battle or something. But nevertheless it was a great movie.
This movie and Whiplash are underrated because blockbuster take their place. These movies should be in the top 5 and Hunger games was bad.
Hands down best movie of 2014! Nightcrawler for the win- you have to know good acting and storyline when you see it!
I don't think enough people have seen this one. Best crime thriller of the last decade. It looks great and has some killer acting in it
My second best film of the year, only Guardians of the Galaxy comes before it.
This movie is amazing, probably the best godzilla movie to date, and here's why 1: everyone complained about Cranston's character getting less screentime which was given to Aaron Taylor Johnson's character, but really think about this, almost all the greatest Si-fi/action movies had bland main characters and people never complained about those. 2: the mutos may have been in the movie more than godzilla but they were awesome, and the next reason will go into detail on that. 3: the sound mixing in this movie is beautiful, every time I heard Godzilla or the mutos roar I got chills.
You got to be kidding me, this is in 8th place? I came all the way here and waited to see Godzilla get only in 8th place? Well, if you don't know Godzilla, just buy it on the 16th of September and sit down and enjoy watching Godzilla beat up some monsters!
Those that complain about Godzilla screen time haven't watched the originals. Godzilla doesn't come in until close to the end of those too, so lighten up.
I was waiting for so long for this to come out, and when it did I was AMAZED! Yeah, I wished Godzilla had more screen time but it was still awesome.
The Fault in Our Stars? Mockingjay? GODZILLA? What in the world is wrong with you, people? 2014 was such a stunning year for film and you guys decide to settle for such mediocrity. You are really missing out on some incredible works of art, such as Leviathan, Whiplash, Wild Tales, Ida, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Nightcrawler, Mommy and, of course, Boyhood.
This film is a masterpiece. It is an utterly unique and absolutely satisfying experience you can't quite bottle. So, come on, guys. I know your high school mates want to see Transformers, but it doesn't kill to watch well-made films every once in a while. Go see Boyhood. I swear it will be worth it.
This one is tied for first on my list. I personally loved the emotional and physical intensity of Whiplash. The thing I loved about this movie? The realistic portrayal of an average American boyhood that one would experience in this situation. The aging of 12 years on screen in one movie that actually told a story was absolutely mind blowing. The script was really good and so was the acting. Richard Linklater is the God of independent filmmaking. He's made Dazed and Confused, Before Midnight, Before Sunset, Before Sunset, Waking Life, Bernie, and now this. I don't think this man can do wrong.
The fact that this movie is below Rio 2, Dawn of POA, Captain America, and several others saddens me. These are mediocre animated/action/superhero movies that come out every year but continute to make money. However, Boyhood is a once-in-a-lifetime movie unlike any other, getting a unprecedented 99% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Boyhood is all just a load of smoke and mirrors that will be forgotten in a few months time while Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 will be loved by generations to come.
Best animated movie of 2014. It develops the characters established in the first movie to whole new levels, and deals with dark themes not often touched in a movie directed toward children. The only reason I think that it isn't in the top 10 is because not enough people have seen it.
Hey guys this is the best animated movie this year. Full of entertainment, elation and emotionally resonant. Certainly deserves place in top 5. Hiccup and Toothless are just great. Ya, certainly first part is unparalleled its soundtrack was amazing. Waiting for third movie
While I do like Guardians of the galaxy better, I think that How to train your dragon 2 will hold up through the ages as one of the greatest animated movies of all time. In my opinion, only beaten by Toy Story, Pinocchio, and the original.
Undoubtedly, the first one was better but this I thoroughly enjoyed this one too.. Probably the best animated movie of the year (Lego comes very close) and deserves to be in Top 10 for sure!
It was kinda hard for me to decide, there were some pretty dang good movies in the year 2014, but upon contemplation I've come to think that this has the best storyline and most ingenuity. Or in least ways, the top five in these departments. But hey, that's my opinion.
If a highly praised film maker like Christopher Nolan was attached to Edge of Tomorrow, it would have been the film of the year. Instead Nolan turned to making "clever", overlong, complex, confident and non-nonsensical yak fest films which are praised because they are original and so complicated, viewers are transfixed into feeling they saw something magnificent, when in reality it was just a unrefined mess. (inception, Interstellar)
Awesome film, it's more underrated than it deserves to be. Tom Cruise's acting here is tops! And it has an original concept and great CGI and visuals, everything about this movie is to be loved! If you haven't already, watch this film!
Really good sleeper film. A rare instance where the hype was under-blown. It seemed like a common near future war movie going in, but turned out to be very distinct and enjoyable.
Movies don't win best picture at the Oscars for nothing. Genius film- the music, the filming and some of the scenes. It always kept you guessing but it was still easy to understand. Way better than Guardians of the Galaxy, The Fault in Our Stars and pretty much every fil on this list.
Boring movie. Overrated. Stole the oscar of Boyhood. I know many people may find the ending mind twisting. But I am used with these kinds of movies. And the boring twisty thing didn't impress me.
The part where the main character flies like a bird in New York is one of the best scenes in cinema history. I guess you haters should grow up and watch this masterpiece.
Probably the worst list ever. Haha this is below Rio 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?! This is a modern classic and is by far the best movie of the year.
Come on, the film is almost as funny as the first, was certainly one of the best comedies of the year, with a lot of hilarious quotes, deserves a much better position, guys!
It's the end of 2014, and by now, I was definitely expecting one of the most intelligent, razor-sharp, witty comedies that I've seen to be in the top ten.
One of the few comedies that actually lived up to its expectations. I'd say this was even funnier that 21 Jump Street
This is one of the best sequels I have ever seen. It's nearly as good as the first!
One of the best movies I've seen in a long time, a plot that twists in the middle of the movie in an incredible and unpredictable way when you think you figured it out. It did not get the attention it deserves because people would not give it a try but this is a masterpiece
I am not sure how all of the Hollywood fluff above beat out this movie, it was by far the best of the year! Direction, cinematography, acting, musical score, everything about this movie was top-notch. It deserves to be much higher on this list!
One of Ben Affleck's best. I would say David Fincher's 5th best (that is really good) with only Fight Club, Se7en, Social Network, and Zodiac being just slightly better.
While the other movies in this list were fun, action packed Blockbusters, Gone Girl was, by far, the best movie of 2014. With an amazingly disturbing plot and, perhaps, Ben Afflecks best role, Gone Girl dwarfs the typical theater film. It is followed closely, however, by the brilliant [The] Grand Budapest Hotel.
Wes Anderson does it again! This artful roller coaster ride of a film is outrageously entertaining and superbly quirky with gorgeously dark undertones. Fascinating characters, incredible visuals, great soundtrack, terrific performances and beautifully detailed. I need to see this film again!
Signature Wes Anderson but I prefer most of his other films over this one any time, it felt rushed and chaotic mind some great visually entertaining moments and a good cast. But doesn't come close to Boyhood, Calvary, Interstellar, Imitation Game, Mommy of Birdman in my opinion. Still good fun though.
Look at what's ahead of this masterpiece. Godzilla, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hobbit, Mockingjay, and the godawful Interstellar are all ranked 5 spots or more ahead of it. Why? They were all mediocre at best. The Maze Runner is ranked DIRECTLY below this. What the hell is wrong with the world?
A quality movie light-years higher than Robocop or the pitifully bad Nut Job. I realize how early it is in the year to start cementing a top ten spot but this film deserves to be in the top 3 at the very least. This film qualifies as art.
It makes a very compelling and beautiful Rommance, it really has cemented Ansel Elgort as a good actor and keeps cementing Shailene Woodley as a terrific actress, also great performance from Willem Dafoe and Laura Dern that really hit home with me. But yes the typical cheesiness does appear, but it's handled well, though Romance films will never be as they were in the 50's 60's and 70's this really does a fine job.
I definitely loved the book AND the movie. And I'm 40 years old. It is a wonderful movie about living and accepting life as it comes your way. May it be for the living or the dying. So what if it's cheesy? Still a good movie, nonetheless. I'd pick this over and over again than the usual superhero stuffs.
It was proven that-more popular=more haters...What's wrong with you people?! this movie was great and one of my favourite. It never made me disappointed upon having a trouble downloading the movie. All I can say was that it was a very good film, amazing plot and beautiful from start to ending. a big GREAT everyone!
This the best love story that just not involve two people who cried for each other and make some promises which sounds weird and unreal it's just more than a love story this about real life. If anyone who hate this movie I don't think that he/she serious in life
Awesome film. I admired that film so much. I think the villains were great (Green Goblin, Electro, The man in the shadows), the plot was awesome, too, the easter eggs were clever, and also I think that some scenes were awesome, like for example, the conversation between the man in the shadows and Harry Osborn about building the famous Sinister Six, which is possibly the best easter egg on the film, as It referred to the novel "the gathering of the sinister six". and SPOILERS for the ones who didn't read the credits, the credits revealed the man in the shadows to be Gustav Fiers,The Gentleman (who in the novel built another version of the sinister six) meaning that in the start sony may have wanted to built a bigger universe. I feel it's awful that there may be no Sinister Six movie, or no amazing spider-man 3 movie. I really hope that the new Tom Holland spiderman movies get to be even better, that there are even more movies in the MCU and that they put villains like Mysterio, Green ...more
The first was really great, and I had high expectations for this one. I almost decided that The Amazing Spider-Man was better than the original Spider-Man. But then I saw this, and thought "No, that is not an option anymore."
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2"? Not that amazing.
You've gotta be kidding me! I hadnt seen any marvel movies before and I came to see this for some weird reason, and I was stunned! Yeah the Lego movie is great too so I'm not slagging anything off, I just think this should be much higher than 18, its one of the best movies I've seen! Brilliant acting too!
In the top five, 3/5 of those movies are for little kids. Muppets, Peabody and Sherman, and the Lego movie. You are kidding right, eh, NOO?! My top five R...
1. Amazing Spider Man 2
2. Godzilla wow, it is ranked 16!
3. Captain America and the Winter Soldier
5. Lego Movie
I am going to see the exciting movie xmen future past soon so that would be on my list, or transformers or dean of the apes 6. Would be mr Peabody and Sherman
This is absolutely one of the best movies I've ever seen. The casting is perfect, the setting of The Glade is accurate through my eyes. This movie is absolutely amazing. If you read the books. If there are any hate comments under this movie, it's probably because you haven't read the books and you don't have a good understanding. The books provide better detail like any other book would. But I think this movie should be in the top ten!
!. I loved this movie <3 I did not read the first book. But I read the second one Scorch Trials. I am in the middle of the third one Death Cure. The book is so good... who wants a spoiler alert and a cliff hanger so you can be excited for the 2 movie! In the book what happens is this... Thomas and all his friends werent the only people who did the maze. Another group did. But, there were all girls and 1 boy. The people the rescue Thomas and all them also rescue " Group B", they are all the girls. Thomas and all all them are Group A. They are separated for a long time. On the back neck of everybody in Thomas group.. group A. Minho has the words " leader" on the back of his. Thomas has the words" To be killed by Group B. Thomas also finds a paper that had Teresa's. Her's say " the betrayer" READ THE BOOK
This movie was amazing. Dylan O Brien acts with raw emotion and is totally hot. The set is amazing, and the action was amazing and upbeat. How is this not in the top ten.
The maze runner is my all time favorite movie. Even though some parts of the movie wasn't the same as the book, it was still AMAZING. And I think they made an excellent Comice making Dylan obrien Thomas
I was pleasantly surprised. The book was decent but the movie was far better. Better movie than the first hunger games, which was unpolished in my opinion.
Best film I have ever seen. It's amazing. I recommend it to everyone.
One of the best movies in my opinion, should be top ten.
I read the whole entire series in books all in 1 week. I loved them and the movie
I have never watched the muppets show but I liked it. Mostly becuase of the actors though. Especialy Ty Burrell. Tina Fey and Ricky were also funny.
Oh man, this movie was AWESOME! It's got time traveling! And alternate versions of characters!
I loved it's a top ten
I need to see it!
