Run All Night- New Release

Neeson is in his usual fine form, but it’s Harris who raises the bar of this film to actually entertaining.

Chappie- New Release

I’m not gonna put Neill Blomkamp in the same ballpark as M. Night Shyamalan just quite yet, but I am alarmed by the similarities.

Unfinished Business- New Release

an unfocused mess that can’t handle its unnecessarily heavy load, and even though I could see Vaughn trying his darndest, there just wasn’t nearly enough laughs to approve of.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2: New Release

It’s not like “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” doesn’t have talented people behind and in front of the camera, but as the credits rolled, it sure did come across that way.

Focus- New Release

Smith and Robbie are skilled enough to pull off the long con, and somehow through sheer talent, make you disregard the the film’s weaknesses and care enough to win you over by the ending.

Kingman: The Secret Service- New Release

..the moneyshot scene in a Kentucky Baptist Church will go down as one of the better blood-bath-excellently-choreographed-action-brawls that I have ever had the dark pleasure to view.  It was truly fantastic.

2014 Movies With Mitch Awards- Best Director, Acting Performances, and Other Random Awards

If I had it my way these would be the Oscar nominations and winners.  Unfortunately I feel like I should apologize for my Best Actress Category, not being able to see Julianne Moore who is considered the probable front runner in "Still Alice" and Jennifer Aniston picking up steam in "Cake", but regardless all of my choices are worthy of high praise.  Besides those omissions, I feel very good to give you my picks for the best of the best in 2014.

Mitch's Top 10 Best Films of 2014

I reviewed 102 films that were released in 2014.  Now you know that I'm not joking around.  It's time for the most egotistical statement a movie reviewer can make.  (On my soapbox) "These are the best films of the year." At the end of every year every film critic from high end publications to the low rung level (like I) we puff out our chests and demand you take notice about what we claim is fact when of course how very far from the truth that is.  I am just as guilty, I get all excited about makig my Top 10 list and I fret nervously over it all year. These are my top ten films of the year.

Mitch's Top 10 Worst Films of 2014

I've seen so so many films this year.  102 to be exact in 2014 and I've had to sit through some tough ones. Some real garbage one might say, but then again for the most part I pick and choose what two films I'm gonna watch per week.  So if I have the choice to see The Imitation Game over Kirk Cameron Saves Christmas, I'm gonna watch me some sweet, sweet Cumberbatch.  Therefore, I have missed some of the worst of the worst, but out of the films I have seen this last year, these are my top 10 worst films of 2014.

Selma- New Release

Truly palpable. Ava DuVernay‘s  grasp on to the importance of the situation, the movement, the history, and most importantly the hard fought righting of the heart breaking wrongs is keenly felt.
