The 25 Best Films of 2014

Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema

  • Excerpt: Okay, I know this is a little late, but I my motivation is an effort to be fair. I wanted to see enough really great year-end films that I could put together a Best List that I was comfortable with. In doing so, I found that this was a much better year than I initially thought, so much so that I’ve put together a list of 25 great films rather than the expected ten.

Television

The Americans: ARPANET

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: ARPANET continues the solid The Americans tradition of simply strong, solid performances, and this time, it’s Annet Mahendru who is the star of the episode. ARPANET is Mahendru’s finest hour as Nina.

The Americans: Behind the Red Door

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: The Americans has given us violent moments, but in Behind the Red Door, we see violence not in a physical sense, but an emotional one. On a certain level, almost all the characters are tortured or torturing themselves, and work is no respite for what haunts them.

The Americans: Echo

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: In many respects, Echo is still the brilliant Americans episode we’ve come to expect from them. In others, I found it bizarre if not downright nonsensical.

The Americans: Martial Eagle

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: In Martial Eagle, I think Matthew Rhys has given the greatest performance in The Americans of the season, an already extraordinary accomplishment given just how good he’s been throughout all the series.

The Americans: New Car

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: New Car is one where we see the dynamic of this atypical marriage, and see that sometimes being a parent is actually harder than being a spy.

The Americans: Operation Chronicle

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: Given how excellent and intense The Americans has been, I was a bit surprised to find Operation Chronicle a bit more quiet. However, given that the season finale is up next, perhaps this is the calm before the storm.

The Americans: Season Two Overview

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: The Americans is the most emotionally conflicting show on television.

The Americans: Stealth

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: We have a mix of the mundane and the murderous in Stealth, with the highlight being the intense face-off between Kate and Larrick. Stealth continues to show just how good The Americans is, a mixture of intense spy serial and domestic drama …

The Americans: The Deal

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

The Americans: Yousaf

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: Parallels are a dominating theme in Yousaf, where we see the characters match their lives so inadvertently.

Franklin & Bash: Big Fish

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: Big Fish shows that when the characters were allowed to have semi-functioning brains, Franklin & Bash could be both irreverent and reasonable. Would that the show kept that going rather than insist it was the lead’s combined stupidity rather than their friendship that was the big draw.

Franklin & Bash: Franklin vs. Bash

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: Franklin vs. Bash might be a good idea, but it is so badly executed and has a subplot similarly stupid that it is the first real failure of the season. Granted, there would be more to come, but that is for the future.

Franklin & Bash: You Can’t Take It With You

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: You Can’t Take It With You has positives and negatives that show that Franklin & Bash could be good or bad depending on what road it took.

The Librarians: And the Fables of Doom

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: And the Fables of Doom went by a bit too quickly and I think resolved things too quickly, but we got to see another fun story that played with both magic and the characters. We also got a small but impressive turn by guest star Rene Auberjonois, whom I would like to make a return appearance, but more on that later.

The Librarians: And the Heart of Darkness

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: It’s nice to see the cast of The Librarians work so well together and keep things exciting and entertaining without being too frightening.

The Librarians: And the Rule of Three

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: And the Rule of Three is I think the best Librarians episode so far. What I really enjoyed about And the Power of Three was that it has wonderful moments of comedy, of action, and even of romance.

Sherlock: The Complete Third Season

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

  • Excerpt: Somewhere along the line, Sherlock, a show that is hailed by Sherlockians and critics as this brilliant work of intellectual television, slipped into fantasy and farce. The three episodes of the third season…were uneven and in some case so wildly outlandish that only the most fierce Sherlockian would hold them as ‘the Citizen Kane of television’.

Awards Coverage

David Fincher, ‘Strangers on a Train,’ and the Tricky Business of Remaking Hitchcock

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: The fact that so many filmmakers have tried and failed to remake — or even one-up — Hitch speaks equally, I suppose, to the industry’s reliance on existing properties and directorial ego. But to understand why Hitchcock remakes are such a losing proposition, it’s important to remember one key fact about Alfred Hitchcock: he was steadfastly disinterested in plot, which is the single element that’s easiest to reproduce.

Fey, Poehler, Maron, and Apatow Begin Stand-Up’s Overdue Reckoning With Bill Cosby’s Comedy Legacy

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: So when we talk about Bill Cosby the comedian, we’re back in that difficult conversation about his legacy. But it’s a different conversation than the one about The Cosby Show — not because he wasn’t a groundbreaking stand-up (as one of the first black comics to “cross over,” he certainly was), but because of the inherently personal nature of stand-up itself.

How ‘Selma’ Got Screwed

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: In the many conversations this critic had in the weeks following my first, emotionally devastating viewing of ‘Selma,’ one thought that never crossed my mind was, “Well, it’s a great movie, but it’s not the kind of movie that wins awards.” To the contrary, this is exactly the type of movie that wins awards.

And yet, as 2014 draws to a close, The Weinstein Company is all but burying two viable awards contenders — and the only plausible explanation is ego and spite.

Jordan M. Smith @ IONCINEMA.com

  • Excerpt: Five years after the Michael Caine vehicle Harry Brown hit theaters, director Daniel Barber has returned to the director’s seat with a revisitation to period drama, which he first explored with his Oscar nominated short The Tonto Woman. With The Keeping Room, he, along with Brit Marling, Sam Worthington, Hailee Steinfeld and newcomer Muna Otaru, relive the end of the American Civil War still firmly wrapped in the fraying husks of racism and sexism, yet his tale, penned by first time screenwriter Julia Hart, sees these barriers burned to the ground in a fit of valiantly feminine retaliation.
