#10. Batman: Assault On Arkham
Batman: Assault On Arkham is probably one of those movies you won't find on many Top 10 lists. I'm not a huge fan of DC many of their characters don't appeal to me (other than Batman & Superman). But Assault On Arkham made me a fan of The Suicide Squad it made me excited for the film, I recommend this to anybody especially Suicide Squad fans or DC fans in general.
#9. The BabaDook
The BabaDook is probably the best movie on this entire list. As a huge horror fan this movie did everything I wanted it too... and then it went even above and beyond. I won't be giving any spoilers or even tell you what any of these movies on this list are about. You need to stop what you are doing.... and go watch The BabaDook.
#8. The Purge: Anarchy
I hated the first Purge movie I thought It had many great Ideas, but it failed in execution. And i'm happy that James DeMonaco was able to come back and try to elaborate on his ideas he had with the 1st film. The thing I liked about this movie is it's allot smarter than the 1st film and it even throws some great curve balls at the viewer that took me by surprise.
The one thing I wish they would portray more with The Purge movies is the violence. I will say The Purge: Anarchy is more violent then the first one but for it's R rating It does not go HARD R. I'm not asking for Saw or Hostel levels of violence, but it should be harder to watch.
Because let's be honest. People are f*cked up and if there was a Purge in real life I could not even imagine some of the tings people would do.
#7. The Raid 2
The Raid 2 reminds me on why I LOVE action movies. I don't have much to say about this movie other than it's a must see. If you love action moves I can not recommend this enough and sure the story is not great but you don't watch The Raid movies for it's story you're watching for the action sequences in which this has in spades.
#6. Gone Girl
David Fincher did it again, another masterpiece of a film. And I will admit this IS the best movie on this list. But there are other movies that captured my heart for other reasons.
It's not may favorite Fincher film I give that award to Panic Room. But Gone Girl is worth you're time. The only complaint I have with the movie is that it's a bit too long, in the 3rd act of the film I became a bit lest invested.
Other than the length of the film...Gone Girl kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. And as everyone else has said Rosamund Pike NEEDS to win a award. If she does not I have lost all faith in humanity.
#5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Can we all give a round of applause to Joe and Anthony Russo? Captain America: The Winter Solider is their 1st big studio movie. And there action sequences are better than majority of other action sequences from other directors that's been making action movies much longer than Joe and Anthony Russo.
Captain America has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters. And The Winter Solider reminds me why Captain America is so important. Furthermore, not only is Captain America: The Winter Solider a masterpiece of a movie it's also a very topical of a movie. Because it address issues and questions we have today in our society. It talks about security, privacy, and how much privacy do we really have?
#4. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
When I first heard Rupert Wyatt (director of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) was not returning to direct Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. I was really disappointed because Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was my favorite movie of the year when It came out.
But man... all my fears about Rupert Wyatt not returning was put to bed super fast. I had no idea when I was walking into Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes it would be one of the best movies iv'e ever seen. Caesar, Malcolm, Koba, Maurice, Dreyfus, etc. You feel for everyone in this movie and Apes is also just like Captain America because it address things going on in our world today. But I won't give it away because it's too damn good...
#3. Edge Of Tomorrow
I have not had this much fun watching a movie in years, Edge Of Tomorrow is fast, funny, action packed, emotional, and has allot of heart. The action sequences are phenomenal, Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt play off each other as if they were brother and sister.
There is not enough good things I can say about this movie and if Doug Liman does not direct a comic book movie or make a sequel to Edge Of Tomorrow in the next 5 year's i'm going to be real disappointed.
Jake Gyllenhaal gives probably the best performance in his career. Dan Gilroy wrote and directed this thing to be as lean and mean as possible. NightCrawler is another one of those movies that is ABOUT something. It has an incredible lesson and it does not come out and tell you that lesson.
Furthermore, this is the first movie that Dan Gilroy directed and just like Joe and Anthony Russo there is an incredible car chase sequence in this is movie. And it was shot like he's been making action movies his entire career.
#1. X-Men: Days Of Future Past
This is the X-Men movie iv'e been waiting for, the team dynamic, the action sequences, everyone get's screen time, the special effects. From start to finish I was invested and it's a masterful of a movie. Now sure... some people might have issues with the time travel, or the continuity, or the plot holes. But I don't care about any of that because the movie itself is so damn good.
Now if I have any issue with X-Men: Days Of Future Past is in the 2nd act of the movie it get's really slow, It could have had a few more action sequences. Nevertheless X-Men: Days Of Future Past is the movie us DIEHARD X-Men fans have been waiting for. And I can not wait for X-Men: Apocalypse not only is it the end of the First Class trilogy we finally get to see one of the best X-Men villains on screen... Apocalypse.
