25 Movies You Have to See in 2014
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
