I know I bashed it all year, but truly 2014 was the most mediocre year at the movies I’ve experienced in my lifetime. As such, I haven’t published my TOP 10 until now, not because I don’t have ten good films, but because I keep waiting for all the films that are supposed to be Oscar favorites to come to my theater and -thus far- they haven’t. Now, next week the Academy will announce the 2015 Oscar Nominations and I will, no doubt, be hopping up and down mad just like I am every year. But that recognition, will bring those films to more markets and my Top 10 may look significantly different by the time we hand out our own version of the Oscars: The 3rd Annual Renaissance Film Awards. What film will follow The Dark Knight Rises and Gravity as Best Picture winners? How much will this list change in a month? Right now, here are my Top 10 Films of 2014 with links to my full reviews.
5. Big Hero 6
7. Gone Girl (viewed during hiatus-no review)
