[tps_title]Cat Gioino’s Top 10 Movies of 2014:[/tps_title]
I mean, after McConaughey won that Oscar it’s like people started realizing he was better than just taking his shirt off or acting in commercials. Well, unless it’s Lincoln. He’s been driving that Lincoln before he won his Oscar. So uh… where were we again? Oh right, something about him being a good actor and taking his shirt off.
- Gone Girl
Well Hitchcock’s been dead for a while, so who made this? Oh wait, the same twisted guy behind Se7en and House of Cards. So this is one of the reasons why I’ll be paranoid of a number of things – all while I’m still trying to slide onto my seat from the suspense the film gives off so easily.
Holy anything! Wow is this movie amazing. I’m Catholic and I still think this movie is amazing. I mean, it’s a priest trying to be nice while the audience just wants to kill everyone. BRB apologizing for saying kill.
As if the title weren’t enough to persuade you to watch the movie, you need to go watch the movie because of Jake Gyllenhaal alone. You’re constantly asking yourself whether you would do this or if it’s so out of this world, yet your philosophical questions won’t save you from the wrath of…
wait for it…
the Night Crawler.
- The Grand Budapest Hotel
Insert why Wes Anderson is quirky here. Insert why he’s a reason Bill Murray is loved by everyone. Insert Bill Murray here. Insert method acting and precise table settings here. Insert the Oscars for makeup and production design here.
It’s Michael Keaton playing Michael Keaton playing Michael Keaton. That’s motivational alone.
- The LEGO Movie
Why haven’t you seen this movie yet? Jump on the bandwagon already… or wait, maybe not. I mean, go watch the movie, but don’t jump on the bandwagon.
… unless that bandwagon is watching this movie, in which case you should.
I can’t believe I had to sit through a twelve year movie. I started a girl there. I came out a woman. However, if not for the actual context of the film, watch it to see just how time passes. It’s watching home videos come to life in a story you can’t help but follow.
- Guardians of the Galaxy
It was such a top hit with everyone that you’d just feel left out if you haven’t seen it. Plus Groot. That is all.
- Big Eyes
Like Rosalind Franklin, what do you do as a woman whose work was taken credit for by a man? And in this case, your husband? We’ll have to find out what Christoph Waltz is capable of in taking Amy Adams’ work in this film.
