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.

But before we get to the top 10, lets take a moment to celebrate my favorite films ranked 20-11.

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.

Into the Woods- New Release

Marshall isn’t able to bring a shred of authenticity to his often told fairyland characters, instead he relies on our preexisting Disney cannon knowledge to pass for character development.

The Imitation Game- review

Cumberbatch’s stammered and shaky speech patterns attributed to the socially cumbersome Turing are truly effective.

Top Five- New Release

Chris Rock shows a massive leap forward as a storyteller that is finally able to tap into a comic’s racially charged humor with a breakneck pace of steady winner jokes and a very surprisingly effective romantic spin.

The Theory of Everything- New Release

What a unnecessarily formulaic and unimaginitive film, especially when the material is about a man who is considered to use his imagination to better his genius.
