Top Movies of 2014: Emotional Trees

top-movies-2014I rarely go to the movies but when I do I hope to the money gods that it’s worth it. I only had a few misses that weren’t worth the ticket but here are five that I’d gladly pay for again.

5. 22 Jump Street

top-movies-2014-22-jump-street99% of people on earth doubted the first one and 100% of those people were wrong. Then we sat and wondered if they could do it again. Somehow they managed to create magic again. What made it work though was the fact that they made fun of the idea of a sequel the whole time. Plus, every time Jonah did the morning walk of shame – amazing.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy

3. The Boxtrolls

2. The Skeleton Twins

What I loved about this was that they mixed humor and heart to create a reality based movie about suicide and all the different sides of it. Bottom line – we’re all screaming for help, it’s just a matter if anyone really hears it.

1. The Lego Movie
