2014 might not have been the best in terms of box office grosses or bums in seats, but there were a lot of really great movies across every genre.
These are not them. These are the fifteen movies that had me wanted my ninety-to-a-hundred-and-forty minutes back. A few did big box office; a few got many terrific reviews; most appalled all who saw them. I doubt any careers were ended by any of them, though some probably should have been.
Without any further ado, follow the jump for my least favorite films of 2014. Enjoy (if that’s the right word)…
In Transcendence, the wife and colleague of a dying man attempt to upload his consciousness into supercomputer AI with less than optimum results in a story bookended by a quiet, post-internet post-apocalypse world.
Transcendence, Wally Pfister’s debut as a director, looks as off-the-wall nuts (in a good way) as something by Christopher Nolan (with whom Pfister worked on such films as Inception and the Dark Knight Trilogy). It also looks like a splendid showcase for Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall.
Check out the new trailer after the jump. Transcendence premieres on April 18th.
