But you know, we really don’t have time for that. So instead, here’s a series of vastly simplified lists of our writer’s top movies of 2014. Important note: no one is claiming these are the objectively best films of the year, but merely that they are our favorites. Also, for my list, we start at 10 and then work down to my favorite film at the number one spot.
10. Inherent Vice
9. Guardians of the Galaxy
8. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
7. Only Lovers Left Alive
6. Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
4. X-Men: Days of Future Past
2. The Grand Budapest Hotel
Who wouldn’t, at the Grand Budapest sir.
