The Best Movies I've Seen in 2014
a list of 23 titles
This is a list of movies that I watched for the first time in 2014, and have given a rating of 9 or 10. They do not necessarily have to be new releases as of my viewing. I am listing them in chronological order as I saw them.
a list of 6 titles
These movies have exactly one thing in common.
Underrated and/or Unexpectedly Good Movies
a list of 116 titles
I do not necessarily think these are underrated. (You can't really include 'The Dark Knight' and 'The Matrix' in a list, and then call it a list of underrated movies.) In some cases, I just went in with low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. Whatever my expectations were, and whatever society at large thinks, for me, these movies represent the triumph of hope over experience.
My Favorite Directors
a list of 14 people
This is a list of directors, ranked in order, who have all made three or more movies that I love. Each has some kind of quality running consistently through all of his best work. I am also including the movies that put them on the list, as well as any that missed the mark, and any that I have yet to see.

My Favorite Movies of the 2000's Decade
a list of 225 titles
I don’t really have any specific criteria for which movies are or are not my favorites. For me, the most important test of a movie is whether or not it’s entertaining or enjoyable to watch. Even unpleasant subjects can be approached in such a way that I like where they take me. But many of the so-called best movies of all time can’t even pass this simple test. In order for a movie to be great, it must first be good. What difference does it make if ‘Memento’ tells its story backwards when it can't even get me to care about what's happening on the screen? Gore Verbinski re-spun the same tired old blockbuster formula with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ and the result there was magic.
The list, by the way, is a work in progress. I've been slow to come up with a commentary for all of them. These are ranked in order.

Here is a collection of movies that really grabbed my attention with dazzling visual imagery. I got number one right. Other than that, it's not in any particular order.
