DREW'S TOP 20 FILMS OF 2014

Man, what a stellar year in film. It's kind of amazing how many absolute knockouts we had this year. It's so astounding that I found myself incapable of ranking a Top Ten or even Fifteen list for the year. There are even films I'm leaving out that I genuinely liked (for the record: X-Men: Days of Future Past (my review), Hercules (yup), Birdman (my review), Interstellar (you get the idea), Neighbors, and Witching & Bitching) that just didn't stack up to a lot of other stuff I saw this year. As of this writing, these are my top twenty films of the year. The top ten will actually have some consideration taken into their rank, but the others are not in any particular order, so just because Captain America: The Winter Solider is my #20 entry doesn't mean I liked it the least. If there isn't a movie on here that you think should be, it means I either didn't see it or didn't like it quite as much as you. And keep in mind that these are the movies I enjoyed the most, not the "best" (whatever the hell that means) films of the year. Is Boyhood more monumental than John Wick? Yeah, but that doesn't mean my personal experience watching Boyhood was as impacting or enjoyable as my viewing of John Wick was. It's all subjective, so enough prefacing! On with the list!

Some SPOILERS may occur, because I don't like censoring myself when talking about movies. Snape kills Dumbledore.
