It’s in: The top movies of 2014!
Here is a list of the top ten best movies of 2014 that include the highest-grossing movies released in the United States.
10.) “Godzilla”: Released May 16, it brought in $201M with a rating of 6.6/10 from imbd-users. (Was it the film? Or maybe the monster wasn’t big enough to be #1?)
9.) “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”: Released May 2, it brought in $203M with a user rating of 7.0/10.
8.) “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”: Released July 11, it brought in $209M with a user rating of 7.8/10.
7.) “X-Men: Days of Future Past”: Released May 23, it brought in $234M with a user rating of 8.2/10.
6.) “Maleficent”: Released May 30, it brought in $241M with a user rating of 7.1/10.
5.) “Transformers: Age of Extinction”: Released June 27, it brought in $245M with a user rating of 5.9/10.
4.) “The Lego Movie”: Released February 7, it brought in $258M with a user rating of 7.9/10. (Because somehow, a movie on kids blocks and figures should clearly be a top five crowd-pleaser compared to the other movies released this year.)
3.) “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”: Released April 4, it brought in $260M with a user rating of 7.9/10.
2.) “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1”: Released most recently on Nov. 21, the film leaped to a gross of $264M within only its first month in the U.S. box office, and a user rating of 7.2/10. (Definitely the most dynamic film this year in terms of popularity.)
1.) “Guardians of the Galaxy”: Released Aug. 1, this film takes home the gold. Marvel’s sci-fi blockbuster of the summer brought in an impressive amount of $332M and a user rating of 8.3/10. (That is four movies from Marvel that made it on to the list. Clearly it is losing on the popularity contest on this list.)
From comic book heroes to epic adventures, back stories on classic villains, and from giant robots to monsters to even Legos, here are the best films of 2014!
