Meine zehn Lieblingsfilme 2014

9. Januar 2015 at 13:57

 

Zugegeben, etwas spät, aber besser spät als nie, zwei Kandidaten mussten noch gesichtet werden. Es war kein schlechtes Filmjahr, wirklich nicht, mit einigen handfesten Überraschungen. So mancher vermeintlich schwache Blockbuster war dann doch nicht so schlecht wie erwartet ( Captain America: The Winter Soldier zum Beispiel), einige waren sogar erstaunlich gut, und auch dazwischen gab es ganz viel zu entdecken und zu sehen, wenn man sich denn auch die Mühe machen wollte, genau hinzuschauen. Leider habe ich es nicht geschafft, alle vermutlich erwähnenswerten Filme im Vorfeld zu sehen, so fehlen mir beispielsweise immer noch Gone Girl und Nightcrawler, also ist die Liste auch genauso zu verstehen, meine zehn Lieblingsfilme aus 2014, die ich habe sehen können… in diesem Sinne: viel Spaß damit und auf ein ähnlich gutes 2015!
