Films of 2014

I saw four films in a cinema this year. In order of preference:
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
2. X-men: Days of Future Past
3. The Grand Budapest Hotel
4. Gone Girl
I didn't really love any of them. The three first films on the list I found uneven, and Gone Girl I thought was not very interesting at all. I'll be getting Grand Budapest Hotel on dvd. I found it disappointing, but it may be one of those films that gets better on repeated viewings. Why didn't I go see Boyhood? I dunno. I'll be getting it on dvd, same with Only Lovers Left Alive and possibly Nebraska. Which film do I look forward to in 2015? Mad Max: Fury Road. Now that's what I call a trailer.


  1. I know you don't like very much P.T. Anderson but, Inherent Vice looks amazing. Pynchon's books is incredible.

    1. I didn't like Magnolia or Boogie Nights much, but There Will Be Blood was pretty good. Until it kind of falls apart at the end. I'm curious about Inherent Vice. Private detective films can be fun.
      Havent read any Pynchon books so far, but I could give him a try.
