The movie Snowpiercer speculated about a train that contained all of the survivors of humanity. Acting as a metaphor for the rich against the poor, the further back in the train a person lived, the poorer they were, and then a violent revolution broke out.
J.G. Ballard’s novel High-Rise had a similar premise, only this time it was a luxury apartment building and the poor lived closer to ground level. Once again, violence breaks out. The biggest difference was, unlike Snowpiercer, the people living in the building are free to leave at any time.
Anyway, there’s a movie version coming out starring Geek favorite Tom Hiddleston. See the rather unique trailer after the cut.
At some point every geek franchise goes for time travel. Superman circles the globe at high speeds to make sure he can be in two places at once. Captain Kirk needs to find some humpback whales. I dream of dumping Barney back in the paleolithic age where he belongs. Time travel is what every geek has considered at some point.
This week, I unveiled my Top 20 and bottom 20 movies. What about the other 105 flicks that made up the crazy list? For your browsing amusement, here is the ENTIRE list of 2014 movies viewed by Gabbing Geek film fan extraordinaire. Enjoy!
The best films of the year deserve much greater examination. For a full review of each film #1-10, check out my list.
This was a great year for movies, so I didn’t want to just discuss my top ten. There were so many movies that were worthy of consideration. I’ll post the full list Thursday, but first here are the films that, while not worthy of top ten rankings, are surely praiseworthy. With so many great films released, there is no shame in silver!
