POLL: What Was the Best Film of 2014?

IT IS TIME!  The Killing Time Community must now perform its most solemn duty of the year: choosing what film they will endorse as Movie of the Year.  This is the 3rd Annual award, with The Dark Knight Rises and Gravity taking honors in 2013 and 2014, respectively.  What movie will receive the coveted golden stabbed watch statue (commonly known as “the Stabby”) this year and all the prestige and fanfare that comes with the honor?  You will choose.  I’ll vote once just like any other member, but the readers decide this award.  I do my own personal awards in a different forum, but that’s just one man’s opinion.  This is the endorsement of the readers.

You’ll note there are 20 films to choose from, and I know that’s a lot, but this is the formula I used to select the nominees:
1. All eight Academy Award Best Picture nominees
2. My personal top eight films
3. Top 4 highest grossing films that didn’t make it on to the first two lists (so that’s why Transformers is there; that’s OUR bad).

I hope this gives you the variety you need to make your decision.  VOTE!   Please, if you read this site, voice your opinion on this one.  The poll will run until the Friday before Oscar Sunday, when we’ll unveil the 2015 Killing Time Movie of the Year!
