It's the best of the year, and this one goes to 11... or 30... or we just talk about tons of films.
Unbroken and Boyhood didn't impress, but at least we got to talk about some that we think we will.
It was a crazy week that packed in more than we could possibly talk about, but we also managed to cover The Imitation Game and Into the Woods.
Birdman may have been the clear winner this week, but I rated Big Eyes even higher.
It was a wild week, and St. Vincent tangled with Interstellar in a surprising way, ratings-wise, but we had a lot of fun.
We were blown away by Nightcrawler, even if we didn't rate it as though it were amazing. Sometimes an actor can just take off and fly beyond the material, and Jake Gyllenhaal certainly does that here.
John Wick was the surprise of the year for us. Listen in to find out why this simple, almost boring-sounding actioner blew us away.
Fury didn't wow us, but it managed to get us to see things differently, which is always a fun show.
The Judge will probably go down as one of the most overlooked titles of the year, and it's all down to the subject of the plot, which is too familiar.
This is Where I Leave You is a quirky, family winner that avoids most of the traps of the reunion genre, and ends up a lot of fun.
Guardians of the Galaxy is the benchmark for popcorn entertainment in a sci-fi world, and though it has its faults, it has enough fun, and from enough sources, that you don't mind.
The Purge Anarchy is a massive surprise, and a film that deserves more attention. It's surprisingly fun, and a better effort than most things in the genre, and it's a different genre than you probably think.
