...found myself enjoying it, that was until the third act climax that bludgeoned me silly and left me not only obnoxiously annoyed but in one of those film going experiences that literally gave me a headache.
..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.
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.
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.
