My Tops of 2014 - July

WINTER'S TALE was an insanely dumb romance, drawing more laughs than heartbreaks. The best way to sum it up: death by penis.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was a magnificent sci-fi epic, nearly perfect. Too bad the human characters were all empty husks, except for Gary Oldman.

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION was way too god damn long. However, I had an alright time with all of the explosions and action thrills.

LUCY featured a game Scarlet Johansson but writer-director Luc Besson was too busy crafting a lucid rush of 2001 imagery and questionable violence.

THE PURGE: ANARCHY was a dirty fun exploitation flick, thanks to Frank Grillo in the lead.

OPEN GRAVE was a pretty tedious horror indie, not helped by the sheer fact that the viewer can figure out the mystery in the first few minutes.

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST was an unmitigated comedy disaster. Seth MacFarlane should never play the lead again.

NEIGHBORS had some problems within the story but it was often very funny. Cute baby too.

I didn't do better, 8 films compared to June's 9. Sorry.

Still didn't re-watch Under the Skin, so it stands as is until I hit my local Redbox.
