This month I only managed to watch 13 new films, all of them from 2014. I probably could have watched some more but I also watched all of Netflix’s Daredevil, about ten episodes of Gilmore Girls, and 14 rewatches, most of them being for the Best Animated Feature project. But all in all, it was a good month for best film. The worst two films I saw were merely alright. So, I’m just gonna list the ones most worthy of listing and hope the next month will be better.

The Best

  1. Two Days, One Night (Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne)
  2. Big Eyes (Tim Burton)
  3. Paddington (Paul King)
  4. Top Five (Chris Rock)

  6. A Most Violent Year (J.C. Chandor)
