Now, they’re working on a new series based on director Bong Joon-ho‘s propulsive sci-fi thriller (adapted from a French graphic novel of the same name).

Snowpiercer header

For me, TNT has always been the channel I turn to when nothing else is on and I’m looking for a familiar film to serve as background noise. I mean, how many times can one network possibly air The Shawshank Redemption? My guess is they’ve set the record, and second place isn’t even close.

The network has had its share of original TV content over the past couple of decades – I guess someone has to keep Noah Wylie employed – but it looks like I’m going to have to brush off my preconceived notions about that channel, because they’re apparently stepping up their game. They’ve hired Avatar 4 writer Josh Friedman to be the showrunner for a TV adaptation of Snowpiercer, and now two more big names have boarded the train: Tony Award-winning Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs will star, and Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson will direct the show’s pilot.

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?

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.

Selma trailer

The right director and the right script don’t mean anything without the right actor. Performers are the ones who bridge the gap between the minds behind the camera and the ones in front of the screen. It is their personalities that draw us in, their expressions that tell the story, and their faces that we remember.

There were no shortage of great performances this year, across all genres and all budgets. Inevitably, a few stood out above the rest. See our list of the best performances of 2014 after the jump. Read More »
