Vowed to keep on top of my reviews last year and I did...to a point. There are handful I didn't get around to writing but all of those I missed would be mid-table films so wouldn't be jostling for a position in the following lists. And, I did see more than 80 films and even more plays which I also review so I've not been lazy.
As I cover films released in the UK from Jan 1 to Dec 31, it messes up the 2014 Oscar nominees as their release dates are split between 2013 and 2014. And, putting Oscar films in the list now just seems a bit old news so of the five shortlisted films I saw in 2014, Nebraska was my absolute favourite and would have been the only one to make it into my top 10.
So here is my 'best of' plus a handful of highly 'recommendeds' - what can I say, it was a good year, my average score was just under 70%*.
2. Mockingjay Part 1 (I loved it, what can I say?)
3. Imitation Game
4. Under The Skin
5. X-Men: Days of Future Past
