Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s theme is the movies of 2014, or at least that’s what I decided on. I’ve watched a lot of good movies this year, and even more than my usual count. If you’ve been following my Mini Movie Reviews! series, then you probably have an idea of what’s on this list.
Do take note that not all of these movies were released this year.
*This list is arranged in ranking order, so #1 is probably my favourite movie of 2014 so far.
1. Dead Poets Society
– Man. I did not expect this movie to leave such a huge impact in my life. I was forever changed after watching Dead Poets Society. It has thought me a lot of great values that I should carry with me in my journey of finding myself, or something like that. And that ending! #SOMUCHFEELS.
– This was a visually-enticing and mind-boggling retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I’m actually starting to doubt the original fairy tale haha. Angelina Jolie was the obvious show-stopper here.
– Quite possibly my favourite horror flick of all time, and that’s saying a lot. I really hope they continue on with a sequel for this because that ending left me hanging.
4. Black Swan
– I can’t believe it took me so long to watch this movie! It had everything I wanted and loved about psychological-thrillers. I love Natalie Portman, guys.
– My favourite French film of all time (or at least so far)! It was fun and hilarious and quirky (and swoon-y ha). If you’re going to venture into French film territory, then you should definitely start with this one (it’s that awesome). (enough with the parentheses, miguel)
6. Jane Eyre
– Of course, there’s bound to be a Tissue-Box-Grabbing-Worthy film in my faves of 2014 list, and no it’s not The Fault in Our Stars. I can’t even form coherent thoughts on this one. It was just beautiful.
7. The Kings of Summer
– This film was such a joy to watch! I love the cast, the story, the cinematography — everything. I may have formed an emotional bond with this film because of how much I identified with it.
8. I Killed My Mother
– My first glimpse of how amazing Xavier Dolan’s directing skills are. Also another great French film you should check out.
9. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
– I don’t want to admit it, but I really enjoyed TASM2 even though I had prior reservations. I almost teared up at that ending, but I willed it to stop because I was watching with my family ha. Oh and Dane DeHaan was fabulous.
10. The Social Network
– Rounding up my top ten list is Facebook’s biopic. It was absolutely entertaining. I loved Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield here. And the score was spectacular.
So that’s it! What are your top movies of 2014?
