2014 Top Ten Films

Honorable Mentions

The Grand Budapest Hotel: Going into seeing a Wes Anderson movie, you have to know the kind of comedy that is in store for you. Sometimes it is dark humor and the rest of the time it has a quirky quality to it. It is no different in The Grand Budapest Hotel. The story centers around the hotel in the 30s when M. Gustave (played to perfection by the uber talented Ralph Fiennes) was the concierge there. Fiennes is hilarious and has the comedic timing down to perfection. There’s a murder mystery going on as well; there is actually a lot going on in this movie, but it is always funny. The entire A-list cast will have you laughing constantly. I will be quoting this hilarious movie for years. Read my review of The Grand Budapest Hotel here. Continue reading

A Most Wanted Man — MOVIE REVIEW


Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams in A Most Wanted Man

In the last performance of his career, Philip Seymour Hoffman gives us a damn fine one. That is for sure. This role wasn’t an easy one to take on. John le Carré always gives us these rich and difficult characters to latch onto in his novels. Just look at The Constant Gardner and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. They all had these big actors playing the main character, but it was never flashy or showy. They have to sink into these roles in order for the true character to be present. And from what I’ve read, le Carré wasn’t completely sold on Hoffman playing his character right away. But leave it to Philip Seymour Hoffman to be the one to truly stand out. Continue reading
