The Best of 2014

Here is the list of the top 10 films of 2014, from what's been seen/reviewed already. They're in no particular order because some films were better in certain aspect than others.

1. The Raid 2

Meatier and grittier than the first (is that even possible?), The Raid 2 will smash you in the face over and over again. A strong plot will keep you hooked from beginning to end.

2. Nightcrawler

Take a journey with an odd rookie journalist on the streets of L.A. Jake Gyllenhaal is mesmerising.

3. Guardians of the Galaxy

Incredibly funny and plenty of action. What more do you need from a Marvel film? Easily their best to date. 

4. Interstellar

Will keep you awake trying to figure this one out. Christopher Nolan strikes again.

5. X-Men: Days of Future Past

Bryan Singer is a welcome return as Director. DoFP has a great story involve old and new mutants.

6. The Maze Runner

A quiet surprise this one. One for the young adults that will be around long after The Hunger Games. Bring on The Scorch Trials.

7. Edge of Tomorrow

A breath of fresh air in a year full of sequels. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt are a phenomenal pairing. 

8. Gone Girl

Ben Affleck is fantastic. David Fincher's never disappoints. Trying to work out who's right and who's wrong in your head is only half the fun.

9. The Lego Movie

Sheer entertainment, whether you're a Lego fan or not. Listen out for the cameos. Arguably the best animation of the year. 

10. The Wolf of Wall Street 

Rude, crude and outright hilarious, Scorsese and DiCaprio are back with this pill-popping, booze chugging party.

Other top films that didn't make the cut are The Grand Budapest Hotel, 12 Years a Slave, 22 Jump Street, St. Vincent , The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
