Most Anticipated Films of 2014

     One year done, another has begun. Even though I still have a few films to see from 2013, I am already looking forward to 2014. Great directors, such as Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Christopher Nolan, Michael Mann (hopefully), Darren Aronofsky, David Cronenberg and Jim Jarmusch, to name a few of my own favorites, that will be releasing new films in 2014. A lot of good stuff on the way. We will also find out which films are good and which ones are duds after the few that are premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in a couple of weeks. I have broken down my personal top ten and also just named around 20 other films that have intrigue. The top ten are top notch, highly anticipated and come from directors with a serious respect and knowledge of film. They usually always make stuff that sticks to you and does not just roll over and go away. Here we go!!!
