This year was particularly difficult when naming a top 10. In the end there were some movies that just stuck with me more than others.
Honorable mentions include “Gone Girl,” “Selma,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “The Theory of Everything,” “Foxcatcher,” and “The Imitation Game.” All six of which I highly recommend you see, and definitely try and find a way to watch these top 10 unique and impactful films.
I cannot argue against some of the complaints about “The Lego Movie,” but in life there are just some forms of art that impact you personally. For me, a young man who grew up enjoying Legos and still loves Legos today; “The Lego Movie” nailed it. I could relate to every joke, to every serene moment, and I was cackling in the theater so much I sounded like I was choking on popcorn.
For a movie that could’ve been a commercialized disaster, “The Lego Movie” was one of the most original and fun movies, not only of 2014, but of this entire decade.
