Germain’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Germain Anticipated 2015

If Hollywood plays its cards right, there’s no way 2015 shouldn’t break every single yearly box office record on the books. The calendar is simply jam packed with huge movies. They may end up being good, or maybe they won’t, but either way they’re going to put asses in seats. These are films audiences are excited for. Films they demanded. In some case, films we’ve been waiting years to see or never thought we’d actually see.

All that said, there’s an embarrassment of potentially awesome movies coming out during 2015. I considered at least 50 before cutting back down to a top ten that really speak to my personal tastes. Then I threw in ten more for good measure. Either way, there’s no doubt that, as great a year as 2014 has been for film, 2015 undoubtedly has it beat in the “potential” column. Especially when it comes to those big time Hollywood blockbusters I tend to get really excited about.

So, without further ado, here are my most anticipated films of 2015. Read More »

Angie’s Most Anticipated Films of 2015

Avengers Age of Ultron Science Bros

Even as I scramble to get in a few more 2014 releases before I close the book on this year, I’m looking forward to 2015. Next year promises to be huge for Hollywood, packed as it is with big-name sequels like Star Wars 7 and Avengers 2. But it also looks like a good time for movie lovers, not just movie studios. A lot of those tentpoles look genuinely good. And a lot of riskier ventures look like they’ll pay off. And that’s not even getting into all of the indie gems buried ahead, waiting for us to discover them at Sundance or Toronto or what have you.

Films from the last category were naturally left off my list, as I can’t get excited for a movie I haven’t heard of yet or know nothing about. But for a list of the films (big and small) that I do know about, and am eagerly looking forward to, join me after the jump.  Read More »

Germain’s Top Ten Films of 2014

Snowpiercer

Time and time again, you’ve heard that 2014 was a great year for movies. And it was. But as I looked back at the about 150 films I saw released in 2014, I saw a pattern. There were, in fact, lots of great movies in 2014, and in the next few pages you’ll read about a bunch of them. But I honestly feel like when I picked my favorites, the films I felt were the best released this year, they all were on an even playing field. In a way, I could’ve just given you the ten best movies I’ve seen this year in alphabetical order and called it a day. But where’s the fun in that? The fun part is sitting down and making the hard decisions about what is truly the best. So, below, read my top ten movies of 2014.

The Most Popular /Film Posts of 2014

guardians of the galaxy

In 2014, nearly 4,500 posts graced the front page of /Film (thats an average of 18 posts per work day). Today we look at the top 1% of those articles in the most popular /Film posts of 2014. On the following pages you will find out what were the most read articles published this year on the site, and some of these may surprise you. (Who would have guessed that the casting for Jon Chu’s Jem and the Holograms movie would be a contender on the top of this list or that Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer wouldn’t even make the top 50?)

To clarify, this list does not indicate the posts that /film readers clicked on the most, but instead the most popular overall. What I mean by this is some of these posts go a ton of traffic from social media sharing from @slashfilm and other accounts (as was the case with Jem) while others got picked up on sites like Reddit or Digg. Some of our popular editorial features still get a large amount of readers daily through people searching on Google or what not. The resulting list of the most popular /film posts of 2014 is a very interesting look at what hit this year, especially in the moment.

Christopher’s Top 10 Trailers of 2014

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we look at the Top 10 trailers of 2014.

What Are the Most Pirated Movies of 2014?

Frozen Ride

Guardians of the Galaxy and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 are shaping up to be the biggest hits of the year at the global box office. But in terms of the year’s most pirated films, they don’t even make the top 20.

Instead, the most popular movies among illegal downloaders in 2014 were some of the best loved films from 2013. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that this is the one popularity contest Frozen didn’t manage to win — it comes in at #2. So what was #1?  Get the top 20 most pirated movies of 2014 after the jump.  Read More »

The Ten Highest Grossing Actors of 2014

X-Men Days of Future Past

Adam Sandler may be hideously overpaid, but there are still a few actors in Hollywood who are very good at making money. The list of 2014′s highest-grossing actors is proof of that. Four big names raked in $1 billion or more at the global box office this year, and one of those will probably continue to cash in in early 2015. Hit the jump to see the highest grossing actors of 2014.  Read More »

Angie’s Top 10 Films of 2014

Boyhood

In box office terms, 2014 wasn’t a huge year for film. But in creative terms, it’s hard to fault this year’s crop. It contained at least one once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece, not to mention one of the greatest horror movies in years, several big-budget franchise-builders that soared way past expectations, and some completely out-of-nowhere gems.

As the year winds to a close, I’ve taken a moment to look back at some highlights. As usual, this shouldn’t be considered an objective list of the year’s best film, but an entirely subjective list of favorites. Run down my top 10 films of 2014 with me after the jump.
