Best movie of 2014

so what film from last year is a must buy DVD?
I had a real soft spot for the Planet of the Apes….
I think my favourite films this year were Interstellar, Birdman, Fury, American Sniper and Whiplash. All fantastic.
Still trying to get my head round Interstellar and am sure that I will never actually understand it, but what a film.
Birdman was a different type of film, loved how it was all shot in “one scene” and the drum music all the way through created a great atmosphere.
Fury was a mans film, lots of blood but very moving at the same time.
American sniper was a bit of a “Black Hawk Down” type of film, loved every moment apart from the plastic baby 🙂 and the drill bit.
Whiplash was pure brilliance and some of the best acting I’ve seen in a long time. Again very moving.

For me, Grand Budapest Hotel. So easy to watch, funny, very Cohen Brothers-esque.
I found American Sniper a bit disappointing but mostly because I’d read the book and I got a better sense of what Chris is about rather than what Clint Eastwood is trying to portray. I still enjoyed it though.
I really liked Fury, gritty, and I felt the violence had real consequences for the characters and thus moved the story along.
Lastly, Frank, very quirky but not everyones cup of tea!
Nice reviews there David.
I’ve recently seen The Theory of Everything. Really enjoyed the film and was quite moving. Made me appreciate the guy in the wheelchair a lot more. Didn’t know he wasn’t born disabled, and he had 3 kids! What a guy.
