My Tops of 2014 - September

THE QUIET ONES was never scary and nearly squandered the talents of Jared Harris and Olivia Cooke.

LOCKE had a fantastic performance by Tom Hardy but the car drama wasn't very inventive in the direction or script departments.

BOYHOOD didn't fully blow me away but it was a life-affirming, impressive work of art.

THE NOVEMBER MAN was a forgettable Bourne clone, starring a former Bond, that was bathed in misogyny.

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW was a, wait for it, shoddily made found footage horror movie but I was able to like a few of its elements, such as when it becomes NATIONAL TREASURE-lite.

SABOTAGE was bloody good when David Ayer was present and hard to follow when Skip Woods was present.

ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART III was an amazing travesty. I literally couldn't stop laughing throughout it. So glad the trilogy ended on a "high" note.

WRINKLES just wallowed in despair throughout and had nothing more to say other than "Alzheimer's sucks!"

THINK LIKE A MAN TOO was extremely useless, wasting a great cast and barely had any connective tissue to Steve Harvey or his books.

Back to 9. Need to watch more, especially since there is only three months left.

Hooray, I finally have a top ten!

Yeah, I was waiting to re-watch Under the Skin as part of the celebration of Halloween. Yeah, that's the ticket.
