The Best of Cinema 2014 By Moviejerk

Source: Moviejerk

HOPE. LOVE. EXISTENCE. BEAUTY... CINEMA.
There have been some excellent Retrospective Videos in years past, but nothing quite like this. If you're more into artistic/independent films, this is right up your alley. There's only 30 films featured in this montage, titled The Best of Cinema 2014, which is all based on Moviejerk's Top 30 Films of 2014 (which hasn't been published yet). A lot of independent movies shown here (with a few exceptions), but his editing is pure perfection! It is a little heavier than most, but I think that's part of its draw. The track used is by M83, Un Nouveau Soleil, which makes this montage even more stellar than it already is. Take a look and enjoy! 
 
Here's what Moviejerk had to say:
"It’s nearly the end of the year, and everyone from Sight & Sound to John Waters are each coming up with their own best films list. Hardly anyone has the last word on this, not even Quentin Tarantino, hence each list is as fascinating as the next. It’s a sport widely exercised by film critics and filmmakers alike, and I’m cooking up my very own 30 Best Films list to be served up just before we bid farewell to 2014. For the time being, I’ve edited a montage of movies, the best of cinema in 2014, a brief glimpse of the films that will be included and celebrated come end of the year to the tune of M83’s Un nouveau soleil (from the film Les rencontres d’après minuit)."

Get Your Retrospective On - Movies of 2014

Source: Firstshowing
"Come and get your love." Man, I love this time of year! Christmas is just around the corner, everyone is nicer to each other, the seasonal music is blaring, the pretty lights are glowing, and movie mash-ups come flowing in like madness, not to mention lists of the Best Movie Trailers and Films of 2014. In case you haven't seen many movies this year I say this: "What's the matter with you, but more importantly... you're in luck." Check out this recap, the latest impressive compilation of clips from films ranging from Birdman, Guardians of the Galaxy to Unbroken. Nick Kinder went through great lengths to make this extra special too by using dialogue cleverly matched with the right clips.  Check it out and enjoy!
 
Here's what Kinder had to say about 2014: 
"Diverse is an understatement when referring to the movies of 2014. The year held such a range for films in such a range of genres and styles. They were bold, they were risky, they were awesome. Not in recent memory has a year for film been so generous. Looking back is a pleasure to the memory; there was so much offered, so much to see, and so much to love. I wanted to focus this time on the aspects of humanity, inspiration, and especially love, as I found 2014 cinema to be heavily influenced on these topics."

Laggies Trailer

Source: Firstshowing.net

"Why would you tweak the nipples on the Buddha?"

Can't say I'm completely sold on the movie's title (in fact it's straight up stupid! The British name is perfect - Say When), but Laggies staring the darling looks absolutely charming, and it takes place in Seattle (ahem, my home town). It's a story about woman struggling to find herself  while doing everything she possibly can to avoid real responsibility. I know it's a little been-there-done-that, but whatever. At the very least it looks like a really fun rental. The film also stars (adorable) and (love him!). Take a look...

Having spent her twenties comfortably inert, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber). When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to escape - at least temporarily - she hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika's world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell). Laggies is directed by (Your Sister's Sister), written by and hits theaters on October 24th

Mortdecai Trailer

Source: Firstshowing

"No, I don't need help with my bags, 
I have a bloody man-servant."

There are two things I love most in this world - movies and Johnny Depp. Mortdecai, staring the lovely (and ahem, corkey) Johnny Depp, looks pretty silly, almost as if Capt. Jack Sparrow went and got himself a haircut and new clothes. The adventure comedy from director David Koepp is just a teaser, but it already has me hooked. It has a talented, all-star cast and it feels very Wes Anderson-ee, which I love. It basically introduces us to the main character from Kyril Bonfigliol's books. Mortdecai seems to have a bit of a reputation, and it's not a very good one. Take a look... 
 
Mortdecai is directed by (Premium Rush, The Secret Window) and written by , based on the books by Kyril Bonfiglioli. Juggling angry Russians - the British Mi5, his impossibly gorgeous wife (Gwyneth Paltrow) and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue - Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) has to travel the globe armed only with good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting that supposedly contains the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany & Olivia Munn also star in the film which Lionsgate will release February 6th, 2015

Worthy of your time?

A Phenomenal Interstellar Trailer

Source: Firstshowing

"Love is the one thing that transcends time and space."
Another phenomenal and gripping trailer for Christopher Nolan's Sci-Fi adventure. If you weren't interested before you will be now (that is if you're a sci-fi fan). The latest Interstellar trailer practically brought tears to my eyes. I love everything about this trailer, from its spectacular special effects, the rich emotion, to the whole allure of it all/interesting plot. It is one beautifully crafted trailer and I can't wait to see the movie! Take a look...

Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of such films like: Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. The screenplay is by Christopher Nolan and , based on scientific theories by Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne and follows a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. stars in the film which Paramount Pictures will release the film on November 7, 2014.
