I haven’t seen any 2014 films released in the last several weeks of the year, so my best-of list might have to be added to.

Gloria, Gone Girl, Ida, Capt. America: The Winter Soldier, Blue Ruin, and God Help the Girl are the best of those I viewed.

Honorable mention goes to John Wick, Gimme Shelter, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Labor Day, Hercules, and—a guilty pleasure because I live in Tulsa—Home, James.  I gave some praise to Birdman and Heaven Is For Real, but don’t believe either one of them deserves honorable mention.
