Updated 2014 Movies List

I think it's fair to say 2014 has been a pretty ordinary year for great films but there has been plenty of entertaining rubbish... I'm going in early with my list while on leave at home...


Mandela Long Walk to Freedom here in Oz
The LEGO Movie outstanding
The Monuments Men great story
Cuban Fury Nick Frost humour
Anchorman 2 most of it anyhow
The Muppets Most Wanted good story
Divergent disappointing
Noah fascinating with a few standout scenes/questions
Rio 2 yeah OK
The Amazing Spiderman 2 hmm, it was Ok
Bad Neighbours funny idea, didn't work for me, one funny scene... the De Niro's
Blended classic Sandler creeps up on you
The Fault in Our Stars a fav. from 2014
Jersey Boys Clint tells a story
Transformers Age of Extinction not as bad as could have been
Captain America Winter Soldier good twist
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes really like this series
Lucy a mixed bag of great idea they didn't know how to finish
Her I thought I'd hate it and turn it off, it was great
A Most Wanted Man the great Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Guardians of the Galaxy was very funny
Calvary stunning storytelling
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles yeah, dunno, funny, Ok story
Expendables 3 hilariously pointless escapism
The Maze Runner disappointing
The Box Trolls great
The Judge outstanding work
Mr Peabody and Sherman disappointing for a story I grew up with
Veronica Mars formulaic but entertaining
Grace of Monaco not as bad as critics said and I enjoyed the history lesson
The Hundred Foot Journey great story
John Wick if only Tarantino had done it, great escapism for 2 hrs, quirky idea
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt 1 like it says, 1/2 a film, enjoyed it, was sad about Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Exodus interesting despite 2.5hrs, more to say later

Haven't seen for Various Reasons But will
Charlie’s Country

Will See When I Can
Dumb and Dumber 2
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

The Water Diviner
