    Our top fives are really similar for 2014, though Interstellar isn't anywhere near my list. God that last act was dreadful. I think it's Nolan's worst film by a long shot. I only took two things away from it, the score, and this

    I was at a museum this summer and there was a section about space. They had a full sized space suit you could step into. Of course, I had to step into it and (of course) I started screaming at the top of my lungs. "DON'T LET ME LEAVE, MURPH! DON'T, DON'T LET ME LEAVE!!"

    Needless to say, I got more than a few sideways looks.

    I forgot to mention that the third act is fantastic. Such a mind fuck. If you revisit that film in a few years, I think you might feel differently. I truly think that film will be better received with time.

    Wasn't a mind fuck to me. The answer is
    Spoiler:
    His love for MUUURRPPPHHHH is quantfiable and transcends time and space (Anne Hathaway gave us the answer earlier in the movie). For a movie that is hardcore scientifically accurate, I found that to be a laughable and saccharine philosophical notion which derailed all the science to me. And how the hell did Matt Damon not understand how an airlock works? Come on! They sent you into space! Surely 'Airlock 101' is like the first lesson at space camp.
    The movie looked and sounded great and the performances were fine, but it went downhill for me after they found Damon. I just sat there thinking
    Spoiler:
    How long until he reveals he's crazy and betrays them, so that twist had zero affect on me. The single highlight for me was that first planet with the high gravity, compressed time, and massive waves. That shit was totally awesome. The movie just went downhill for me after that, more and more.
    I had such high hopes for the movie too. I'm going to rewatch it one of these days. Me and my friend had it on his netflix queue for two years for that reason and we never watched it, and I even downloaded it too, and still haven't watched it. Could be a few more years before I enter that wormhole again lol

    Oh, I'm goin' slap happy! I'm goin' slap slap happy! Slappity slapping ya, teachin' ya a lesson for comin' in my house!

    it comes from watching too many of them, thus building a solid watching experience; will, naturally, only get worse with time. The trick is not to let this experience-born presentiment interfere with the perception; at times totally impossible, though

    That's a great list. I feel that 2016 was a strong year. I hear a lot of people saying otherwise.

    I'm half not looking forward to doing my lists for the decade, but half really looking forward to it. It's not going to be easy.

    Very strong top 10. I know Cure for Wellness is technically a 2016 film, but I'm considering it a 2017 film for my lists this year. It got a wide release in February.

    Yeah it can be confusing but to simplify things I'm just going off what IMDB lists it as.

    That's true. Probably your best bet. I'll end up doing that for my decade lists too more than likely.
