It’s time for our annual countdown of the year’s best films, as chosen by the users of Criticker. Our methodology was simple: we looked at every film that’s eligible for the 2014 Academy Awards, and that had at least 50 rankings at Criticker. And then we let math do the rest.
Yesterday, we revealed the year’s ten worst films, and today, we’ll start counting down the best, starting at #20. 2014 was a great year for Hollywood; a large number of films in the first half of the top twenty were also among the biggest box-office smashes. How many of these have you seen?
There were a lot of great films in 2014… but then, there were also a lot of stinkers. We’ve examined the ratings made at Criticker.com, crunched the numbers, and produced a list of the worst films of the year. From horror to comedy, action to romance, Hollywood’s least-talented filmmakers are adept at screwing up any genre!
We’ve recently introduced a great new enhancement on Criticker — the ability to filter on “Film Type”. Currently, there are five different “types” classified:
1) Regular Films
2) Short Films
3) TV Movies
4) TV Mini-Series
5) Straight to Video
As of right now, you can do things like filtering Short Films and TV Movies out of lists. You could look at all TV Mini-Series from the 90’s. You can load a list of “Straight to Video” films from Britain.
We’re really excited about this new functionality, and hope that you are too!
We’ve implemented a new bit of functionality on the list of directors, screenwriters and actors. You can now sort this list by the percentage of films you’ve seen, by filmmaker. For example, if you’d like a list of all the actors which have 20 or more films in our database, ordered by the percentage of films you’ve seen, you could just click here.
We hope this extra ability proves both interesting and useful!
Here they are: the top ten films of 2013, as selected by the Criticker community. From sports to romance, outer space to Wall Street, Italy to Denmark, but overall the winner this year seems to have been serious-minded drama. Which of 2013’s excellent films brought home the coveted #1 spot? Just scroll down…
2013 is coming to an end, which means it’s time for our annual round-up of the year’s best films. For this list, we considered the films which have 50 rankings or more at Criticker, and are eligible for 2013’s Best Picture Oscar. Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars make appearances in the first half of our Top Twenty list, though a couple of non-American flicks make the cut as well. Tomorrow, stay tuned for the best of the year. And if you’re interested, check out the year’s worst ten films.
