Best Movies So Far in 1 Phrase

As we imageshit the halfway mark in 2014, I already have a Top 10. It won’t stay that way. Likely at least ½ of these films won’t even be on my Top 20 by next Oscar time. But I thought it’d be worth to point out the best and worst of what’s come out so far. I decided to reflect on them with what’s the ONE thing I remember best about the film.


  1. The Grand Budapest Hotel – QuirkinessTHE_LEGO®_MOVIE-2-600x433
  2. The Lego Movie – Awesome!!
  3. Captain American: The Winter Soldier – Comic Book Done Right
  4. 22 Jump Street – Sequel!!!!!
  5. Edge of Tomorrow – Again and Again and Again.

#6-10 (alphabetical)

  • Chef – Wish I ate ham.
  • Chinese Puzzle – French Woody Allen
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 – Sentimentality
  • Obvious Child – Jenny Slate
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past – Quicksilver

Not Included: Life Itself – Steve James’ wonderful biopic on Robert Ebert hasn’t opened in theaters yet, but having seen it, it’ll make my Top 10 so far for sure.

Noah, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Maleficent, Million Dollar Arm.

For all of them – meh. They were okay.


I expect big things from the next six months.

See you at the movies.
