Nick's Top 10 Movie Music Moments of 2014

Jan 14 // Nick Valdez
Honorable Mentions: Birdman - Flight scene, Snowpiercer - "What happens if the engine stops?," The Skeleton Twins - "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," 22 Jump Street - "Ass-n-Titties," Into the Woods - "Agony" [embed]218773:42129:0[/embed] 10. The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1 - "The Hanging Tree" as performed by Jennifer Lawrence Every year there seems to be a song that's meant to break into mainstream pop. Usually by happenstance, or some kind of weird popularity spike, and "The Hanging Tree" is 2014's single. Written by the Lumineers (with influence from the original text), and given an odd dance backing so it can be played on the radio, this moment may have been forced but it did show off the first actual rebellion against the Capitol. Like other parts of Mockingjay - Part 1, the scene finally opens up the world beyond Katniss and her compatriots.  [embed]218773:42130:0[/embed] 9. The Lego Movie - "Everything is Awesome/(Untitled) Self Portrait"  "Everything is awesome, everything is cool when your part of a team" was 2014's "Let It Go." There's a dollar theater in my town next to the local grocery, and when I first heard a little girl singing that song, I knew we had a winner. The scene it's used in doesn't hit perfect status until the "12 Hours Later" bit but it's still very good. Even better? Batman's demo tape, "DARKNESS! NO PARENTS!" [embed]218773:42132:0[/embed] 8. Guardians of the Galaxy - "Come And Get Your Love"  As critics like myself (although I'd like to think I'm as far from that definition as possible) continue to worry over the staleness of Marvel's films, the intro to Guardians of the Galaxy, featuring a nonchalantly groovin Chris Pratt dancing to a once forgotten Redbone tune, helps alleviate some of that worry. Starting off on the right foot, this scene helped set the tone for Marvel's future. It's going to be a lot more fun.  [embed]218773:42134:0[/embed] 7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - "Elevator Beatbox"  You won't see the TMNT movie on many Best of 2014 lists, but I've got to credit where it's due. It may have be clouded by a bunch of odd decisions, but the Turtles themselves were great. Although they looked like giant steroid hulks, the few times they got to act like their "Teenage" namesake truly stood out. This came to a head in the elevator ride before the final battle with Shredder. It's the most fun scene in this film, and it's completely unnecessary when you think about it. But it's full of so much personality it's hard to care. I want the sequel to basically be this scene x 100.  [embed]218773:42133:0[/embed] 6. The Guest - "Anthonio" The Guest has one of the best soundtracks of 2014. Fusing synth pop and trance together with little known European Pop remixes, and coupling them with a nostalgic run through the horror genre lead to one of the best musically inclined films of the year. The Guest owes most of its successes to its soundtrack and it's never better than the final scene. A stare down, a remix of Annie's "Anthonio," and a sinister Dan Stevens are a match made in heaven.  [embed]218773:42135:0[/embed] 5. The Book of Life - "Just A Friend/The Apology Song/I Will Wait" as performed by Diego Luna, Cheech Marin, and Gabriel Iglesias I think The Book of Life'll be the only time I hear Tejano-inspired music in film and that's a bit sad. Like me, it takes influences from classic pop tunes and unapologetically puts a little Mexican flair into each one. There's too many awesome songs to name (but the one touted as the "big" one, where Diego Luna performs a cover of "Creep," is kind of lame) with the too brief "Just a Friend," and the great "Apology Song" sung to a flaming skeletal bull in the Land of the Forgotten, but my favorite is definitely the montage set to "I Will Wait." It's hilarious, critiques Mexican culture, and it just sounds so pleasant.  [embed]218773:42137:0[/embed] 4. The Interview - "Firework" as performed by Jenny Lane Although the clip above doesn't refer to the scene on this list (as it's much better to experience it without being spoiled), trust me when I say that it's truly a great movie music moment. The scene that launched a thousand emails, and was most likely toned down in retrospect, but it's a damn fun scene. Much like the rest of The Interview, it makes sense in the most absurd way. Hope you get to see it for yourself.  [embed]218773:42138:0[/embed] 3. X-Men: Days of Future Past - "Time in a Bottle" With as many comic book films I see now, they all start to blend in together after awhile. What woke me up from my haze, however, was Days of Future Past. While the rest of the film followed the same beats, and Quicksilver himself wasn't the most interesting addition, I've never seen a better demonstration of super speed. Sure we've seen this type of slowdown in films like The Matrix, but I can't recall seeing it used so humorously. It's the little touches that made everything work.  [embed]218773:42136:0[/embed] 2. Frank - "Secure the Galactic Perimeter/I Love You All" as performed by Michael Fassbender Frank is a film about twelve people saw, and that's a damn shame. It's got some of the best music from 2014. The songs were notably assembled by the cast (and not even available in full on the soundtrack) and they're just so weird. Good weird. While the final song "I Love You All" gets the full bump on this list, it doesn't really mesh as well as it should until you've seen the film. Once you've seen the film, learned of all of Frank's quibbles, then it truly comes together.  [embed]218773:42139:0[/embed] 1. Whiplash - "Caravan" as performed by Miles Teller God, Whiplash has the best f**king music. That finale? So gooooooooooooooood. What are your favorite music moments of 2014? Agree or disagree? Leave a comment below or hit me up on Twitter! Stay tuned through the rest of the week for more "Best Of" lists!

Nick's Top 5 Sequels of 2014

Jan 13 // Nick Valdez
Honorable Mentions: How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Raid 2: Berandal, Captain America: The Winter Soldier [embed]218787:42123:0[/embed] 5.  X-Men: Days of Future Past The X-Men series was in quite the pickle. As the seventh film in the ailing series, it had quite a bit to prove. Doing something I've never seen before, DoFP went and actively rebooted (as in, made "rebooting" a key plot to the newest film) the series in order to fix all of the issues fans have had with it. Not only pleasing comic book fans, but even casual moviegoers as it brought back all of the headliners and never once felt like the confusing mess it could have been. An interesting, and most importantly, successful experiment that showed off what comic book movies could truly be capable of.  Read our review of X-Men: Days of Future Past here. [embed]218787:42124:0[/embed] 4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 The Hunger Games films have been steadily getting better at handling their themes, and it came to fruition with Part 1. Finally capitalizing on the promise of the series, Part 1 introduced many teenage movie fans to conflicting political ideologies, smaller facets of yellow journalism, and all while having the confidence to talk about things a bit. There hasn't been any room in the series for conversation thus far, and that's weird considering the books are nothing but Katniss talking to herself. This was a sequel that was willing to breathe for a bit and wallow in the messed up situation they're in. It's definitely the first film in which the Capitol seemed like an actual threat.  Read our review of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 here. [embed]218787:42125:0[/embed] 3. 22 Jump Street Comedy sequels are a dime or dozen. For every 22 Jump Street we got in 2014, we also got Dumb and Dumber To, Horrible Bosses 2, and A Haunted House 2. While those lesser films tried to recreate the film that got them there, 22 Jump Street did that and made fun of themselves while doing it. Not once did they lie to their audience and say that the sequel was made for something other than money, or that it should exist at all. It was like saying "Hey we're doing this, so let's all just have some fun!" and that's all I could ever want from a sequel, really.  And those title cards during the credits? Perfection.  Read our review of 22 Jump Street here. [embed]218787:42126:0[/embed] 2. The Purge: Anarchy You know what makes a good sequel? Take a film that I wasn't interested in before and completely reinvent the wheel to make it far more entertaining. By changing the direction of the series, from house invader horror to cheesy action thriller, adding Frank Grillo, and throwing a fine layer of hamfisted sociopolitical messages, you've got the best Grillo'd Cheese sandwich. For the first time in a long time, I find myself a lot more interested in annual sequels. Give me one every year this interesting, and I'll never speak ill will toward #CrimeDay again.  Read our review of The Purge: Anarchy here. [embed]218787:42127:0[/embed] 1. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes "Apes. Together. Awesome" was the subtitle I used for my Dawn of the Planet of the Apes review, and it's still one of my favorite things I've ever written. Dawn also happens to be my favorite movie of the Summer. It was thrilling, had several nice action bits, and looked amazing. Fixed most of the issues I had with Rise, and brought more Ape on Ape action. I ended up shouting "APEEEEEEEES" for several days after. I do not hate every ape I see, from chimpan-a to chimpanzee.  Hope the next film has Dr. Zaius. Read our review of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes here.  What are your favorite sequels of 2014?

Flixist Community Discusses: X-Men: Days of Future Past

May 30 // Nick Valdez
Here are a few comments from community members who really liked the film!  @RobLopez7:  I like how it took the premise of the comics but applied it to the film continuity. Also Quicksilver proved everyone wrong. @MisterBever:  DoFP was a great way to erase (most of) the mistakes of X3 and breathe life back into the X-Men franchise. It was more bridge than blockbuster, but it was a damn sturdy bridge. Matthew Razak (Flixist Editor-in-Chief, from the review): The real strength in X-Men: Days of Future Past is not its action or its time traveling paradoxes, but the fact that it hones in on the characters and doesn't let go. While replete with cameos and small parts for almost every X-Man who has ever been on screen this film is really about Professor Xavier, Mystique and Magneto with Wolverine acting as a guide. By focusing on the issues and people of X-Men and not on the power the movie succeeds, especailly thanks to its fine cast. Definitely the best of the X-Men films while being both thought provoking and entertaining. Nick Valdez (Flixist News Editor): I liked seeing Hugh Jackman's huge, jacked bare ass. Been waiting something like 14 years for that, so thank you.  And because of carg0, all I could think of when I saw Xavier was "You ain't got no legs, Lieutenant Dan." And now community members who liked DOFP with a few hangups. Everything's leaning more positively!  @TalkingMagnets: Wonderful contrast and matching between past and future worlds, but ultimately didn't amount to anything more than what X2 did. Mystique didn't feel like enough of a well-rounded character to have the plot hinge on her. Hanajun Chung:  When that film started with Xavier's opening lines, I had the 90's theme playing in my head. For me, that's as iconic as the Elfman score for Burton's "Batman". "DOFP" was a step in the right direction. Like "First Class" and "The Wolverine," they managed to tell an engaging and entertaining story that might not have cared about continuity, but clearly showed interest in the characters and the narrative. But aside from continuity, "DOFP" had huge plot-holes. The big one is Kitty Pryde's ability to send Logan's consciousness back. I know it's a nod to the comic in a loose way, but it's quite baffling even when newer mutants from the future timeline were given ample time to show off their their powers. Maybe I'm not familiar with something. But I'm not complaining, as this is probably one of the top summer releases for me. The action sequences with the X-Men in the future timeline is everything I imagined. While Singer's previous films showed battles, and Rattner attempted to demonstrate teamwork, it wasn't until this film that you really got the sense that these characters have fought as a unit. When Blink is providing portals for people, it's just awesome. To have the best of the old and new cast in one film is simply awesome in an acting perspective. Quicksilver's scenes are pretty outstanding. I know I'm probably echoing a lot of other criticisms, but it's honestly how I felt after my screening. Also, didn't that ending feel like "Timecop" to anyone, only without Van Damme and the line about hot dogs? @TillyKoa:  They need to make more X-Men movies with the Original cast. IT shows that it makes them the $$$. First Class and the Wolverine flopped without the original cast - they need to utilize the fanbase. meaning. use rogue. The movie was absolutely great and it's because the original cast- having a fanbase of 14 yrs- were pleased! But they honestly need to make a separate film with the original cast. The Re-boots aren't working- first class tanked. And these community members have the most spoiler filled contributions. Enjoy at your own risk!  carg0: I thought it was OK. A solid 3/5 in my book but, unlike 'First Class', it's not a movie I'll be adding to my collection. DoFP is a (tiny) step backwards. There's no doubt in mind, though, had Matt Vaughn been directing I'd be singing a different tune. And I'll probably wind up saying the same thing about it's sequel 'Age of Aquarius' ...I mean 'Auspices of Aquaman' 'Admiration of Autumn'? something about a blue guy from Egypt... whatever... Chad Almasy:   Best X-Men movie yet. I'm so glad they didn't focus too much on Wolvie this time around. I also love how they gave Mystique time to shine, she was absolutely awesome. *****spoiler***** I'm glad they brought back people at the end, though I hope they stick with the past X-Men in future movies. I hate the wooden portrayals from Halle Berry, Famke Janssen, and James Marsden of their respective characters. I can't wait for Apocalypse. He was my second favorite villain from the 90s cartoon (the first being Mr. Sinister). I hope they can nail him as beautifully as they did back then. *****end***** So, it looks like we have a winner! With the past two Community Discusses, we've had a basically even split down the middle. But it seems by all of your comments, most of us enjoyed Days of Future Past. A lot of you rightfully pointed out some flaws (younger actors don't work, the logic of the film is wonky and needs further explanation, and focusing so much on Mystique may have been a mistake), but I'm feeling the positivity.  You've got a winner, Bryan Singer. Too bad you probably won't direct these anymore.  What did you think of Days of Future Past? Comments or suggestions? Keep an eye out for future discussion opportunities! Special thanks to all who contributed!

Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past

May 23 // Nick Valdez
[embed]217780:41537:0[/embed] X-Men: Days of Future PastDirector: Bryan SingerRelease Date: May 23, 2014Rated: PG-13 Days of Future Past takes place several years after the events of The Wolverine (or if it makes it easier, after the events of X3: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class) as the mutant population has dwindled down to a few thanks to an army of machines called the Sentinels. Pushed to the brink, Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellan) decide to send Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness back in time to the 70s (shortly after the events of X-Men: First Class) in order to connect with their past selves (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender respectively) and stop Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from setting the war torn future in place.  This is the most comic book-y, comic book film to date. As such it's a treat to fans who've stuck with the series' long run of films. Unfortunately if you haven't seen First Class, and may be jumping in because of the original trilogy's actors returning (or if this is somehow the first X-Men film you'll ever see), then you're going to be completely lost. Although the film is the most successful use of the "reboot" term in Hollywood (as it essentially hits a giant reset button), it heavily relies on your knowledge of past information. I couldn't help but notice that the person next to me at my screening had to explain who every character was to his significant other. I know that won't be the case for everyone, but this film moves fast, and there's no time left for catch up. But as mentioned, DOFP is a celebration of the X-Men films' long run. Every character is present (or mentioned) as it sets a new timeline for the films. There are lots of names thrown out there (names fans will recognize for sure), yet somehow each character gets time to shine. Director Bryan Singer takes his knowledge of the franchise (X-Men, X2) and makes the most out of what little screen time each character gets. In fact, even the new additions (notably Blink, Quicksilver, and Warpath, with Quicksilver being the true standout) don't feel like an afterthought like some mutants have felt in the past films. And the action scenes present also utilize the most out of each mutant's abilities (which hasn't really happened since X2). I was initially concerned when I learned DOFP would have over 30 characters in total, but this juggling act is in fine form. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how goofy everything would seem if all of these crazy ideas weren't anchored by great performances. Expanding on their chemistry from First Class, McAvoy and Fassbender tune in to their characters more than ever. There's a welcome darkness to them as off-screen events have driven them further apart. While not much is said about what happens to them between the events of the previous film and the sequel, filling in the blanks is easier to do when there's such a strong emotional current. Unfortunately, the film doesn't stay in the past forever and the shifts to the future highlight some of the weaker aspects of the series, but luckily the brunt of the film is spent with the right people. The future is there mainly for kickass action scenes. However, my main problem with the film lies within its logic. Lots of moments happen that we're just supposed to accept. It's where the comic book logic kicks in (remember, it's the most comic book-y film) and we're supposed to accept that people suddenly have powers they didn't have before, that certain drugs work certain ways, that Wolverine won't call Storm by her real name even if he does that for everyone else. But as I find myself typing this, I realize that most of my problems are trivial. Watching the film (other than noticing a few scenes could be trimmed down for brevity) I really didn't have these issues. I was able to say "Sure alright" quite a bit. but then again, I've stuck through all seven of these.  You'll have a great time with Days of Future Past if you're able to just go with the flow of the film and not really think about what you're seeing -- so it's sort of like the best and earliest films in the series. A fun romp with goofy elements throughout that ultimately succeeds because you're having so much fun watching things unravel (double that fun if you can catch all of the comic book and continuity references). You'll just have to do your homework first.  Matthew Razak: The real strength in X-Men: Days of Future Past is not its action or its time traveling paradoxes, but the fact that it hones in on the characters and doesn't let go. While replete with cameos and small parts for almost every X-Man who has ever been on screen this film is really about Professor Xavier, Mystique and Magneto with Wolverine acting as a guide. By focusing on the issues and people of X-Men and not on the power the movie succeeds, especailly thanks to its fine cast. Definitely the best of the X-Men films while being both thought provoking and entertaining. 87 -- Exceptional
