Grace of Monaco (2014)
One of my favorite working actresses portraying one of my favorite no longer breathing actresses. Lucky me!
But then the movie happened and... what a let down.
Should've contained more quiet charm and smartly comic flashes than it did. Instead this came of as somewhat preposterous and, what's worse, dull.
American Sniper (2014)
Lazy direction from Clint Eastwood, probably because this was always going to do no wrong for a sizeable audience so why... you know... try. Well I'm not of that audience. Find a real goddamn baby, for fuck sake.
Oh and maybe learn how the rotation of the earth works. When it's sun high in the sky, mid-day in Texas, it is not sun high in the sky, midday in Iraq on the other end of your fiancée's phone call.
Force Majeure (2014)
Presents an intriguing internal struggle but the execution is stifling, pretentious, and oh my fucking god dull. This is of the Michael Haneke school of film making, which is mostly to say dour and self-important. What little fascination and reluctant goodwill I still held went out the window when the movie reaches a faux-climax as the whole family throws themselves onto the floor in a wailing, sobbing self-pity party.
Jersey Boys (2014)
I guess I just don't think much of Eastwood's style of filmmaking these days when he makes the list twice.
Pain Gain (2013)
Touted as Michael Bay's best film in years, or possibly ever, but really it's still just a bloated, rambling piece of brainless garbage. It's not Bay at his most self-aware, it's just more Bay narcissism.
The Best of Me (2014)
The Other Woman (2014)
Winter's Tale (2014)
Oh yes, I'm sure there were even worse movies released in 2014. But I didn't see them, and I'd prefer to keep it that way.
