The 14 Best Movies of 2014

Another year, another “best of” movie list. No one is going to read this introduction anyway, so, without further ado, here are the best movies of 2014:

14. Guardians of the Galaxy

A band of alien misfits team up to save the galaxy from another generic Marvel villain seeking another generic all-powerful stone. Funny, entertaining and refreshingly different from other Marvel products, Guardians is nonetheless one of the most surprising successes of the year.

13. Coherence

A group of friends at a dinner party encounter a blackout, and a paradox in the time-space continuum, in this low-budget, dialogue-driven thriller that is multiples better than it has any right to be.

12. Blue Ruin

A troubled man with a hipster beard goes on a bloody revenge spree in this tense, superbly acted and unpredictable drama-thriller.

11. Time Lapse

What would you do if you found a camera that predicted the future? Personally, I’d take a lot of selfies, but the three friends in the low-budget and yet-to-be-officially-released Time Lapse do a lot more than that—and the results, as you might expect, aren’t pretty.
