Tim’s Top Ten Films of 2014
This is my list of the Top Ten Films released in the year 2014. I have reviewed each one of them or a review is pending and consider them to be all worthy of their position. If you notice any films that you loved and that are not on the list then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply didn’t see it (there’s a lot of those). Enjoy the list and check them out if you haven’t seen them.
10 Most Anticipated Films of 2015
This is my list of the most anticipated films released in the year 2015, wow this year, crept up quick. I have a skewed view towards the genres of Sci-fi and Action, so don’t expect indie or drama, I will watch them but at the moment I just don’t care. If you notice any films that you want to see more than anything then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply forgot it was coming out. If so I would love to know if I am missing any. Also there will be a box office prediction for each film; you guys know how much I like predictions. Upcoming reviews are all 2014 film, first The Guest then The Interview, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Nightcrawler and The Babadook. Also still need to see The Hobbit Battle of The Five Armies and Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1.
Wer (2014) Mini Review
Here comes another mini review, this time an indie horror film is in my target, also related to werewolves. The film is currently out on VOD, it’s a kind of found footage horror film. But it does have a lot of none found footage scenes. On a none review topic boy does that werewolf guy look like Sébastien Chabal or as he’s nicknamed ‘The Cave Man’ in French Rugby.
I’ll go into much more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
Wolf Children (2013) & The Garden of Words (2013) Mini Review
This week am going to start writing mini reviews for indie/drama films because one I don’t have all the time in the world to write my normal 1000+ word reviews and two because I tend to struggle writing reviews for indie films. That being said I probably could go on a while about these two because they are two excellent animated films from Japan. I know most of my readers probably don’t see all that many anime films or anything foreign or subtitled. So with that in mind I have picked two that are in English language (Excellent Dubs).
I’ll go into much more detail below but please give them a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.
Have You Ever Liked a Film in a Genre You Normally Hate?
Another random question that popped into my mind recently as I watched a film I’ll being reviewing this week. Now I find that if a friend or family member makes me watch something because they believe it to be excellent that I will give it a go eventually, against my natural pessimistic view of genres I normally avoid (If you don’t remember genres I don’t like click here). If I do like it more likely than not it is a film so excellent that it transcends all genres. A rarity but I absolutely love it when I find one. So I ask the question Have You Ever Liked a Film in a Genre You Normally Hate? Mine is after the break.
Summer Box Office 2014 Results
Am Back! And you didn’t even know I left. Sorry for being away from the blog for a while and I may have also neglected some of the blogs I follow. Sorry about that. However I just realised I forgot to review Guardians of the Galaxy and as a result also haven’t read anyone’s reviews. However they are all bookmarked so when my review is out expect some comments.
So to this post, who won the box office this summer, the time of the blockbuster! Some upsets, some shockers and some we easily predicted. Read the rest of the post after the break and leave me a comment.
What Would You Like More Of In Films?
Well the last question I asked was extremely popular. So like film studios am rolling out the sequel as quick as possible. I’ll probably need to clarify what this question is asking. I want to know if there is something in movies that they used to have or that they have never really tried that you would like to see more of in future films. Think outside the box. I really want some opinions on this one because we all wish that the thing we really like should be made more mainstream or popular. And in films they can make anything so why don’t they. Mine is after the break.
For me I want more space battles and antihero’s. When was the last time you saw a good space battle, most sci fi films set in other places are avoiding space battles or any real space exploration nowadays and I don’t know why. Even Star Trek Into Darkness didn’t have much, the was more in a episode from the original series than that film. I quite liked The one from Revenge of the Sith, you know the one right at the beginning. One a few good things to come from the prequels.
As for the antihero’s, well they are extremely rare. An by antihero I mean a Han Solo, a Hell Boy and to a somewhat more extreme area a Judge Dredd. Hopefully Guardians of the Galaxy and the new Star Wars films will solve both of them but am still waiting. But now I want to know your answers so sign off in the comments.
What Movie Genre Do You Avoid The Most?
I don’t normal ask questions but when looking up some new films recently I did something I think most of us do. I skipped some films based purely on the Genres, I know its wrong and that every genre of film has brilliant material to offer but I still avoid some. So I ask the question what genre of film do avoid the most? Not which do you hate but which do see and instinctively say “nah i’ll pass”. Mine is after the break.
Good Points To Films I Hate Part 1: The Last Airbender
This will not be a review this is more of an opinion piece, so no scores or review structure, in fact it’s a Q&A between me myself and I. The post will just be a feature including the highlights (if I can find any) such as moments of hilarity or diamond acting in the turd that is this movie. Look for meme’s and disguised insults, I mean compliments just compliments.
The Opinions Are In & The Vote Is Finished
I needed you to vote for my next feature post and you did, more than I expected. I do have some other posts in the timeline such as the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer #2 review and the X-Men Days of Future Past film review. However the first feature post will be coming out next Friday. I didn’t mention this in the last post but all of the feature posts will be done but the order will be by the most votes. Check out the winner and the exact details on what they will be after the break.
