    • The Revenant I thought would win if not Mad Max. I am glad to see Stallone get a GG even though I have not seen Creed.

    • I think Inside Out will win best animated film but Peanuts Movie was awesome and could win.

    • Jem and the Holograms was completely ignored also..a total bust. Opening weekend a grand total of $2.2 Mill.

    • January 3, 2016 8:05 PM EST
    • Terminator Genisys might have done poorly but I liked it, certainly was not the worst Terminator movie.

      Add to that list

      The Last Witch Hunter

      Aloha

      Rock the Kasbah (not sure this made enough for a cup of tea)

      There were winners in 2015 like Spectre, Mockinjay pt 2, M.I: Rogue Nation, Inside Out etc but there were big losers like "Pan" with a production cost of $150 million worldwide it has pulled in about $126 Million.

      Here are a few losers

      Pan

      Fantastic Four

      Terminator Genesys - dis way better worldwide.

      Jupiter Ascending and Black Hat just to name a few, oh and the Vacation remake or reboot whatever they want to call it but the sucktitude was very high.

       

      I only saw Fantastic Four and Vacation. Fantasic Four was not dreadful. Its acting was its biggest saving grace but the storyline was very off. Vacation was dreadful. Just terrible humor and terrible stock acting from Ed Helms.

    • Believe it or not I really liked Wild, I know not your average teen movie but it was cool kept me into it right through.

    • October 30, 2015 11:21 AM EDT
    • Interstellar was awesome, that would be in my top ten for sure.

    • August 30, 2015 2:03 AM EDT
    • I agree with all in your top ten but I might shift the ordr a bit with Boyhood as the top film and I would move Sniper all the way down to 10 spot. It was a good movie but personally I don;t hold it that high.

    • August 26, 2015 1:11 PM EDT
    • Thank you for this list, I liked Wild it has to be my fav I have seen in 2014 and second is Boyhood. :)

    • August 25, 2015 11:57 PM EDT
    • Where is San Andreas??? lol j/k those are quality movies, you should be working for the Hollywood reporter.

      These movies unfortunately most teens wont watch and that is too bad and I incvlude myself but I saw...Imitation Game, Wild and Birdman. :)

    • August 25, 2015 11:18 PM EDT
    • The best film of 2014 was "Boyhood" hands down.

    • August 25, 2015 12:29 AM EDT
    • An excellent listing, I agree with the films listed, my only change would have” Boyhood” as the top film and I would remove “Wild” from top ten and have “Interstellar” in the list.

      American Sniper was well made and acted but I agree with many who felt it was a bit too much USA USA.

    • August 24, 2015 4:52 PM EDT
    • Of those you mentioned I have only see also American Sniper (propaganda) Boyhood (Unique) Interstallar (awesome) and Guardians of the Galaxy (Fun).

    • August 23, 2015 11:10 PM EDT
    • Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, Boyhood, The Lego Movie and Amrican Sniper are ones I saw you mentioned and I liked them all.

    • August 19, 2015 9:27 PM EDT
    • I love Boyhood, awesome and amazing movie. :)

    • August 19, 2015 8:42 PM EDT
    • Yes I did make a list for 2014, despite how lackluster it was of a movie year both in critical fare and blockbusters but here it goes:

       

      1. American Sniper - This is one movie that most went beyond what I thought it would be. That's why it gets top spot.
      2. Boyhood - I think every adult male can see part of their own boyhood in Mason's.
      3. The Grand Budapest Hotel - The comedy of the year. Wes Anderson doesn't lose his eccentricity and succeeds to charm.
      4. Selma - An excellent story that has as much importance today.
      5. The Imitation Game - As much about the story as it is about the man behind it.
      6. Whiplash - The drive to be the best and a teacher that pushes for it makes a stormier mix than you thought.
      7. Wild - A journey that keeps you intrigued from start to finish.
      8. The Theory of Everything - This is as much about Jane Hawking as it is about Stephen.
      9. Birdman - Excellent story and picture but not too sure who its core audience is.
      10. Gone Girl - Excellent story about a children's writer whose best work of fiction isn't on any print.

      Honorable Mention:

      • Still Alice - I didn't think a film about Alzeimer's would please an audience but it does.
      • Foxcatcher - An anatomy of a murder. It's as much about the people involved as it is about the story.
      • The LEGO Movie - Animated movie of the year without a doubt.
      • Interstellar - Possibly the most underrated movie of the year. Very good story. Very good effects.
      • Ida - Foreign film of the year. Very well-done.

       

      Other Films Of Note:

      Popcorn Movie Of The Year - Guardians Of The Galaxy - Marvel takes a cartoon ensemble not many knew about and turned them into household names.

      Morally Redeeming Film Of The Year - Selma

      Family Movie Of The Year - The LEGO Movie

    • I liked it, I was glued but yea I am a kid. lol

      IT was awesome it really kept me watching because it ewas so cool to see a big jumbo back in world war 2 times. :)

    • August 29, 2015 12:43 AM EDT
    • I  saw Flight World War 2 on Netflix, it was kind of dumb but still fun to watch. :)

    • August 16, 2015 2:24 PM EDT
    • The way it is describe seems awesome I want to see this movie to see a big jet back in time of world war 2.

    • August 13, 2015 12:04 AM EDT
    • I rather strangely found myself enjoying Flight World War 2 despite numerous absurdities. The movie has a certain sit back and enjoy it popcorn type of B movie feel to it. Listen it is there on Netflix just dial it up sit back and enjoy.
      I do find it tough to believe a big jet over such an active war zone could avoid not getting strafed by a fighter jet or taking some ground fire.
      I do agree this plane can climb way above what the fighter and anti-aircraft fire of that time could reach. Those asides there are numerous other things that as I mentioned simply don’t make sense dial those out and enjoy.

    • August 11, 2015 11:23 PM EDT
    • I watched Flight World War 2 on Netflix also and it was pretty cool, I mean not a blockbuster and somethings are stupid but it was fun. :)

    • August 5, 2015 10:33 AM EDT
    • JazzyJeff I am sure most kids would agree that "Flight World War 2" was cool. The movie has so many ridiculous situations it is worth the time to watch just for the laughs. If you turn off your logic and just watch I will admit it is some cheesy fun. :)

      I watched that on Netflix it was awesome guy, this big plane gets put back to 1940 right over Europe while World war 2 was going on. So they have to try not get shot down by the war planes and they have no place to land etc it was awesome.
