#FilmNominations2014 : Best Genre Film

THE BABADOOK

The next category of our awards is dedicated to reward the best thrillers, sci-fi, adventures, crime films and other genres traditionally ignored by more established accolades.

In 2014 Anton Corbijn gave Philip Seymour-Hoffman his swansong role on a great adaptation of Le Carre’s ‘A Most Wanted Man’; ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ proved another successful installment, both creatively and financially, in the latest reboot of the franchise; Alex De La Iglesia produced ‘Musarañas (Shrew’s Nest)’, an accomplished historical and psychological horror and the promising debut of Madrid helmers Esteban Roel y Juan Fernando Andrés; Dan Stevens left Downtown Abbey all the way to the gates of Hollywood with an excellent turn as a psychopath in ‘The Guest’; The Martial Arts genre got another adrenalin-filled injection with ‘The Raid 2’, hailed as an even better film than the original, and David Michod took Robert Pattinson to a post-Apocalyptic nightmare in ‘The Rover’, all of them worthy of mention, but left without a nomination.

The ones which did get nominated are Read the rest of this entry »

#FilmNominations2014 : Best Comedy

PRIDE

2014 was a good year for funny movies, covering a wide range that went from indie smashes such as Jenny Slate’s abortion-themed ‘Obvious Child’ or ‘Chef’’s culinary delights, to multiplex successes of the calibre of ‘Bad Neighbours’ and its young family clashing with frat boys arriving next door antics or Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill’s hilarious return as undercover cops in the bromance of the summer, 22 Jump Street.

Romantic comedy merged with musical in ‘Begin Again’, where Mark Ruffalo helped the singing career of Keira Knightley, paired for the occasion with Maroon 5’s heartthrob Adam Levine; and in ‘God Help The Girl’, the Glaswegian band Belle & Sebastian’s long awaited movie, were released back-to-back with Crowd-pleasing world movies such as India’s romance ‘The Lunchbox”, depicting the well-established tradition of lunch delivery men, whose accidental mistake ignites the flame of passion in a bored wife and Laos’ ‘The Rocket’, using heart-warming humor to deal with the thorny subject of landmines left after the war in the Asian country.

Accomplished micro budget UK works such as ‘Gone Too far’, playfully toying with African immigrant communities and Estate-living stereotypes, next to big projects with such all family appeal as ‘Paddington’ and the (unfairly) tepidly received ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ helped maintaining a constant supply of laughter in our cinemas throughout the year.

But above all of them, our shortlist of favourite comedies features Read the rest of this entry »

#FilmNominations2014 : Most Underrrated Picture

of horses and men (2)

On a year graced with a large number of excellent works is easy to overlook many equally worthy titles. Among the ones that didn’t get the support they deserved we can count John Curran’s beautiful adaptation of Robyn Davidson’s account of her adventures crossing the Australian outback, ‘Tracks’, which boasted a superb performance by Mia Wasikowska; Kelly Reichardt climate activists gone too far drama ‘Night Moves’; Michael H. Roskam’s first Hollywood opus, crime drama ‘The Drop’, adapted from a Denis Lehane novel and featuring the last role for the big screen by the late James Gandolfini, forming an excellent trio with Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace; or the darkly comic Scandinoir ‘In Order Of Disappearance’.

All of them could have been here, but this year’s nominations as most under appreciated film Read the rest of this entry »
