Best of the Year


Family, friendship, and the struggle to find oneself’s place in the world were the big themes on my list this year. Looking back the year might not have offered me the clear winner to top the list (I gave out no perfect score for any film this year), but it still offered a solid list of ten movies worth noting and celebrating. As always, I tried to see as much as possible but there are a few films, most notably Whiplash and Gone Girl, which eluded me. Others like Foxcatcher, Inherent Vice, and American Sniper won’t release in my home market in 2014 (and which I was unable to view and/or review before the publishing of this list) are also not included (although you might see a couple of them turn up in my mid-year list of Best Movies of 2015 So Far next year). Enough with what didn’t make the cut, here is my list of the Top Ten Movies of 2014.

Boy howdy, folks! It’s the last episode of 2011, and once again our pal Bobby Beirley joins ‘monkey & the Cap’n (oh god, we sound like a porny morning drive-time show) to run through our favorite comics of the week, argue about Dark Knight Rises, and a little thing we like to call: The best damn comics of the year. And oh, yeah…we say some pretty awful stuff (again).
