    • 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

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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. :)

    • 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.

    • I have seen it there on Netflix but it has a rating of 1 there, I normaly don't waste my time with such low rated films.

      I did get some nice surprises and did like a few more than that rating relected, I might if I am very bored give it a watch.

    • I enjoy watching some of the many rubbish movies that are up on Netflix, tonight I watched one of the worst pieces of garbage that ever graced a screen.

      From the minute I saw from the credits it was from Asylum Films I LOL as I knew what I was in for but I sat through the utter rubish of a modern day heavy jet going though a storm and appearing in the middle of world war 2.

      The heartbreaking part is seeing Robbie Kay in this rubbish, he started with such promise in films like Fugitive Pieces, Made in Dagenham and Ways to Live Forever. He has no right in such chaff but the rent must be paid I guess.

    • Not a very good list at all, seems like not much thought went into it.

    • August 4, 2015 10:09 PM EDT
    • If I were to do a list like that, I would have to run the whole roster of film from many decades back. I agree WatchMojo's lists are not always the most thought out. Some are good but this one not really.

      An absolute outrage, has the author seen many child start performances I say not. I agree with the outstanding performances from Empire of the Sun and The Sixth Sense but they are rated far too low.
      I am thinking this list was compiled based on popularity rather than straight out acting chops in the films.
      Have those people at Mojo seen Elijah Wood at work in the 90’s in films such as “Paradise,” “Radio Flyer,” “Forever Young” or even “The Good Son,” Macaulay is a bad choice there was no great acting needed to be Kevin.
      Have they seen Miko Hughes in Mercury Rising? Did they ever see Max Pomeranc in Searching for Bobby Fischer or Jenna Boyd in The Missing?
      Natalie Portman was another good choice by them but in large they simply went on the popularity of the film.

      I would rather see a top 10 list in this category from OmahaTrevor.

    • The Sixth Sense kid should be higher, maybe even in first.

    • Funny how I have not seen so many of these. lol

    • July 26, 2015 7:25 PM EDT
    • I don't know but I debate their results. Tatum O'Neal #1? She was good but I've seen better.

    • July 13, 2015 5:24 PM EDT
    • I still give him some propes because The Sixth Sense was so good. :)

      Disagree he has been mediocre at best after the brilliant "The Sixth Sense" the script he wrote and the direction was flawless. Unbreakable was passable but a disappointment. Lady in the Water and the abysmal The Last Airbender is more a reflection of him than Sixth. I see lately he is producing a lot and maybe that is where he belongs.

      I think the problem with M. Night Shyamalan is that he was so darn good early in his career with “The Sixth Sense” that all after are unable to stand up to the brilliance of that film and we right away knock them down.

      When you actually look at his follow-up to Sixth which was “Unbreakable” is not a bad film at all and his Gibson flick “Signs” I did not mind at all. “The Village” while panned is still not a terrible movie at all. The Last Airbender was just plain awful I agree and we will see how “The Visit” turns out with young Ed Oxenbould.

      Good point. Even after all that 'Razzie glory,' directors like him still have to try and define themselves.

    • I have never seen The Sixth Sense but my parents say it is so scary and good.

    • June 21, 2015 11:14 PM EDT
    • I saw it, I was very scared at some parts I was like 12 when I saw it on DVD the end is such a shocker, I would never say the end here because if you have not seen it then wow!.

      Ah, what can i say? I knew it would get the biggest buzz from the 'traditional' film fans of the site. For you young ones who never saw The Sixth Sense, go see it. I highly recommend it.

       

      Yes,this is a very surprising movie indeed.
      Good acting.

    • I wanted to see that not long ago and someone told me it is too scary.

    • All this talk of The Sixth Sense and M Knight has giveme an apptite for a viewing of the movie. And even though it is after midnight I am going to dial it up on Netflix in a few. :)

    • June 9, 2015 1:36 AM EDT
    • No kidding, The Sixth Sense has to be the best movie ever directed by a mediocre director, and his work after proved his mediocrity.

      Trevor I am not shocked at all before every seeing or hearing of this list I predicted it would be the brilliant “The Sixth Sense” (I feel like another viewing)  Michael Bay is always mentioned because people look at his films as formulistic. The transformers and other aside The Rock is one hell of a popcorn movie. Now back to our man M Knight after the brilliant Sixth I could not wait for his next, then I keep saying ok the next, the next. Well?
