  1. I missed a lot of good movies this year. Thank you for pointing out The Place Beyond the Pines and Enemy. Gee Denis did that Prisoners in the same year?! I also have to see Fruitvale Station. I can say there’s a lot to recommend about Frances Ha, Nebraska and Saving Mr Banks so hope you enjoy. The Wolf of Wall Street challenged me but ultimately I think is another classic from Scorcese. Warm Bodies, The Wolverine, Frances Ha, Nebraska, Saving Mr Banks, Iron Man 3, The Heat, The Great Gatsby, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewellyn Davis, Byzantium, Her, Riddick, Captain Phillips, Anchorman 2, Twelve Years a Slave, Gravity, American Hustle were al films I really enjoyed. There were a lot of good films this year, maybe we fail to remember to that because few of them were great but a lot of good ones.

      1. It’s a true story, but it’s much more than about police brutality. It’s how we view each other. There is a fantastic parallel with an injured pitbull in this movie (no spoilers), but how would you react to seeing a bloody violent ‘beast’… that’s helpless.
