25 Movies You Have to See in 2014

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

15. Nymphomaniac

Ninety-nine percent of you unlucky fools reading this list will never watch Nymphomaniac, but this ambitious movie by Lars von Trier has the makings to be a terrific movie – or at the very least a controversial one. The movie posters range from symbolic representations of the vagina to various actors, including Willem Dafoe, doing their O-face.

14. The Grand Budapest Hotel

Just when I want to declare that Wes Anderson’s quirky shtick has officially gotten old – and it’s unclear whether he is capable of doing anything else – but nonetheless The Grand Budapest Hotel looks like a blast – even if it looks like every other movie he has ever made.

13. The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Am I excited for this sequel? Not really. Am I hopeful that, now that the somewhat unnecessary but undervalued reboot is out of the way, director Marc Webb can really flex his muscles? Yes. In this latest movie, Peter Parker attempts to uncover secrets about the mysterious corporation Oscorp and battles the Green Goblin and Electro.

12. Neighbors

A happily married couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) with a young child engage in battle with their next door neighbors – a fraternity house led by Zac Efron. This R-rated comedy promises lots of vulgar jokes and antics, and its May release date suggests Universal Pictures has confidence in the product.

11. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

After years of multiple Marvel superhero movies, it’s hard to get too excited for yet another release, but of all the Avenger characters, it’s Captain America who has the most to prove. His first movie was one of the weaker Phase One entries and he didn’t do much in The Avengers, so it’ll be interesting to see how the character fares in this sequel – in which he battles a former Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier.

    Guardians of the galaxy?

    A lot of negativity expressed for many of the films on this list to be supposedly “must see”. If you expect some of them to suck so badly, why do you rate them as “must see”?

  • eriksamdahl

    They look awesome, but after years of doing this, I have to temper my expectations. This is what happens when you see 200+ movies in a year. :(

  • eriksamdahl

    Eh… I’ll see it, but the teaser at the end of Thor 2 did not make me very excited for this movie.

  • Josh X

    So the author knows nothing about a movie yet makes it THE most anticipated movie of the year? And every entry sounds like a fanboy ranting about how such-and-such a movie is gonna suck. Yawn.

  • eriksamdahl

    Sounds like you expect too much from a “movies to see over the next 12 months” list. We are fanboys; that’s why this movie website exists.
