INTERSTELLAR (2014)
Interstellar poster

The longing of man to explore the far reaches of the heavens, and the enduring power of a promise from father to daughter, fuels the epic yet intimate Interstellar, filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s most ambitious and emotionally potent movie yet.

****
 
BIG HERO 6 (2014)
Big Hero 6 poster

A touching relationship between a boy and his robot is the precursor to a new superhero franchise in Big Hero 6, the latest Walt Disney Animation creation that contains much emotional value amongst its vibrant swagger.

****
JOHN WICK (2014)
John Wick poster

Led by an in form Keanu Reeves, John Wick is an unapologetic action romp that successfully melds old school grit and new school sensibilities.

***1/2
 
FURY (2014)
Fury poster

Fury is the closest thing to a horror war movie yet, with director David Ayer presenting a dark, claustrophobic and foreboding depiction of how the “greatest generation” not only fought against the evil of Nazism, but also the monster within themselves.

****
THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU (2014)
This Is Where I Leave You poster

A great ensemble cast is wasted in This is Where I Leave You, a trite and incredibly silly comedic drama about a dysfunctional secular family caught in a mournful rut.

**
 
WILD (2014)
Wild poster

Reese Witherspoon undertakes a journey of mind, body and spirit in Wild, an impeccably crafted and performed tale of atonement and rebirth.

****
KILL THE MESSENGER (2014)
Kill the Messenger poster

With a powerful Jeremy Renner leading the way and a fascinating true story as its guide, Kill the Messenger will move many with its true life account of a conspiracy exposed and the man who was destroyed for doing so.

***1/2
 
A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES (2014)
A Walk Among the Tombstones poster

Although bogged down by too many plot points, A Walk Among the Tombstones works as a gritty crime thriller that features a refreshingly compelling Liam Neeson as a reluctant man of violence ensconced in a violent world.
