TheHil’s Top 10 Movies of 2014, Part 2

24 Mar

I actually forgot about two movies I saw in 2014, the new X-Men film and the Michael Fassbender-starring Frank. I’ve retroactively added them to the list. To see my opinions on them, click here. And now, for the Final Five (Battlestar Galactica reference): 5. Blue Ruin The most low-key film on my list, this indie [...]

TheHil’s Top 10 Movies of 2014, Part 1

23 Mar

We’re down to the Top 10 and 2015 is already 25% over, so I’m gonna cut to the chase and (try to) keep it short and sweet. 10. The LEGO Movie I thought this would be a cute, semi-original kid’s movie. I didn’t expect it to make me tear up. The animation— which while done [...]

Let’s Talk About All the 2014 Movies, Part 5- Back From the Dead

12 Mar

I didn’t give up on this, I’ve just been super busy lately. Working on a novel and planning on moving back to the East Coast, so not as much time for blogging. After I finish up this and the Assassin’s Creed list I will probably give it a rest for a while. I do kinda [...]

Let’s Talk About All the 2014 Movies, Part 4

23 Feb

The Oscars are over and I still don’t care. Now we’re getting into the movies I liked more, though the first one up is pretty borderline: 19. Noah I’m almost certainly in the minority on this one. Thanks to the faith-based crowd, this bizarre biblical adaptation from arthouse director Darren Aronofsky did well at the [...]

So, it occurred to me that by not putting a “Part 1” after the first blog’s title or saying “To Be Continued” at the end, that some readers were confused. I will rectify this with future installments. Now, let’s get into the movies I kinda sorta liked last year. 26. Godzilla Movie marketing is a [...]

Let’s Talk About All the 2014 Movies

18 Feb

With the Academy Awards going down this weekend, I felt it was my last chance to discuss 2014 in film. I won’t be watching the Oscars ceremony because I don’t care. They have never been particularly relevant to begin with, but in recent years they seem to have hit a new low. Besides, when you [...]

1. Person of Interest- “The Cold War” “Wars have burned in this world for thousands of years with no end in sight, because people rely so ardently on their so-called ‘beliefs.’ Now they will only need to believe in one thing: me. For I am a god.” Game of Thrones may have absorbed me last [...]

4. True Detective- “Who Goes There” True Detective may have disappointed in the end, and it’s certainly one of the more overrated series of the year, but that didn’t stop “Who Goes There” from blowing me away. This is essentially my “Technical Achievement” award for the year, as while I never got emotionally involved in [...]

7. South Park- “The Cissy” Who woulda thunk South Park would still be relevant in its 18th season? But it is, though as always it’s an uneven animal. I think I liked this season more than most, due in large part to the mild serialization and the extra bit of heart. This episode was one [...]

10. The Walking Dead- “No Sanctuary” Someone from AMC Networks Scripted Programming has been looking at my Linkedin profile and I would love to work there again, so all I’ll say is that The Walking Dead is a very good show. That is all.
