The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, 2014 Edition

It's still the decade of the comic book movie, apparently, given that they've almost entirely taken over both the Good and Bad categories this year. On the plus side, I had more options for Good than Bad, though there also seemed to be a lot more movies I just couldn't bring myself to care about one way or the other, which isn't exactly an exciting sort of trend. But without further ado, on to the list all my twelve loyal fans have been waiting for.

The Good:

X-Men: Days of Future Past: A solid, non-confusing, time travel plot in a Hollywood flick? I never thought I'd see the day, but it happened. Too bad about the 70's fashions, though.

Guardians of the Galaxy: I am Groot! What else is there to say?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Sometimes humanity isn't even human. This is two good movies in a row for the franchise; let's hope they can make it three.

The Bad:

Amazing Spider Man 2: I know, I'm risking death threats by putting this one here, but they've neatly removed all the charm from the entire concept of the web-slinger. Here Electro and Spidey compete for the Most Cartoonish Acting award.

TMNT: It was too much trouble to type it all out. I still don't know how those 6-foot-tall turtle things are supposed to fit into the sewers in the first place. At least the technology is cool?

300: Rise of an Empire: Bad on top of bad, and none of the actors could save that script, though to be fair I think they did try pretty hard. Also, Xerxes tries hard to look stylish draped in the Persian Empire's version of bling.

The Ugly:

Godzilla: Ugly vs. Ugly. At least we know Ugly will win the day.

Maze Runner: This picture doesn't do justice to the true hideousness of the Grievers, but it's a start.

Into the Woods: There are just no words.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: 2014 Style.
