15) How to Train Your Dragon 2
Released: 10th July 2014
It’s nice to see a big budget animated film take risks with its characters and storyline and it paid off in a highly entertaining sequel.
14) Inside Llewyn Davis
Released: 24th January 2014
Showing no signs of weakness, The Coen Brothers returned with a reflective film about the 1960s folk scene, seen through the eyes of a young folk singer, Llewyn Davis. Enjoy the music and Oscar Issac’s performance.
13) 20 Feet from Stardom
Released: 28th March 2014
If you want an example of a great documentary, then look no further than 20 Feet from Stardom. It explores the life and talent of back up singers who were behind some of the best and recognisable songs in popular music and the obstacles they faced when they wanted to become a star.
Released: 18th April 2014
It’s Tom Hardy in his best acting performance. No further words needed – just go watch.
11) Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Released: 26th March 2014
Hands down, this is the best Marvel film yet. It’s ridiculously good and a game changer. Chris Evans shows what an inspired choice he is for the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America, the soldier who is out of place and time as he adjusts in the modern, technological world. Great development with the characters and most importantly, we finally see Cap lead and make his own orders which sets up his re-introduction in the next Avengers movie an interesting prospect.
