It was an up and down year for movies. Many that made my ‘watch list’ at the beginning of the year didn’t quite live up to expectations, but on the other hand, many that I had low hopes for exceeded them (Great Gatsby for example). It was, for me, another year of great Indie movies (Drinking Buddies, Before Midnight, Kings of Summer, The Way Way Back, Prince Avalanche and The Motel Life to name a few) and the odd big budget movie (Gravity and, for some reason The Lone Ranger).
Below is my top ten. This is the list I have personally seen this year, so the likes of Captain Phillips are missing unfortunately! I hope you find something you may like among these anyway:
