    Although the soundtrack was horrible, Guardians Of The Galaxy was pretty good. I am Groot. Also in Winter Soldier, when Cap was blocking all of the minigun rounds with his shield, that gun would be empty after like 3 seconds. Those things have a massively high rate of fire (50+ rounds per second).

    Pretty solid list, but no love for Ida? That film was such an indictment against Nazi collaboration and Stalinism at the same time. It dealt so intelligently with the concept of guilt and the impermanence of memory. But thank you for putting me onto '71. I had no idea that movie even existed.

    Dammit, I still need to watch boyhood! I've definitely meant to, but stupid Mexican Cinema has shit taste in what they bring over here, so smart films like that usually get ignored in favor of blockbuster movies, kids fare and most of the awful glut that is Mexican made movies. I feel like The Raid 2 is way too low on this list though. Sure, it's not much more than a vehicle for martial arts action and tons of explosions and crashes, but MAN if it's not executed beautifully, and seeing how you put other actions movies way higher in the list, I'd say this one is better than all of them. Edge of Tomorrow was alright for example, but aside from the Groudhog Day conceit, it really is nothing that special story or action wise. The Raid 2 however excels in action so visceral that IMO it stands out over all others. But hey, at least you didn't put John Wick anywhere in the list. North Americans loved that movie for some reason, but it's so stupid and bad, it's not funny. Also, I loved GotG, but I do NOT think it's better than The Winter Soldier. GotG has a ton of heart as it's super fun and funny, but The Winter Soldier is far more intelligent, with better plot and better acted. GotG is a far more pleasant surprise certainly, because it was such an unknown risk, and Winter Soldier has much more quality to it. The Maze Runner doesn't deserve to be in this list. It's premise is pretty solid, but the execution is nothing great to speak of, and that ending is super trite and cliché, and so obviously trying to have a twist gut punch just for the sake of it, rather than because it made sense or was earned. Lastly... Why is Wolf of Walt Street here? that movie came out in 2013. And I'm pretty sure several others that were Oscar nominees also came out in 2013 as well. ...Oh Right, British website, damn, you guys seriously got those films just this year?

    awesome list, I think i've watched half of these so you've provided viewing material for the next few months :) Boyhood definitly sounds interesting, next one to watch. I loved grand budapest hotel and noah, two of my favoite directors, and as I love Hard Sci-fi, Interstellar was a must see for me. Edge of tomorrow was smart and fun until the last act were it felt dissapointingly generic after what had come before. Tons of great movies, guardians of the glaxay absolutley great fun and reminded me of farscape in some ways. Zac Braff's new film isnt on this list? shame :S Also, the hobbit was excellent, alhough not quite as emotionally investing as some of the other middle earth films (However, the scene of bilbo and gandalf sat together at the end was pretty touching) If I ever geek out and put movie still's on my wall, that image will be the first to go up. A great year for movies, yet next year sounds even better..

    I agree with you regarding Edge of Tomorrow. The main conceit was awesome and pretty well executed, but once they are forced to work without it for the last 20 minutes, they drop the ball hard, specially at the very end. It's still a good movie, but not for it to be as high as it is, I feel. Specially because that last act proves that without it's main gimmick, the film wouldn't have been all that special in all other respects.
