My wife and I do this thing every year. After getting sick of wasting our time watch crappy movies we make a list of the Oscar nominated films and start checking them off, adding certain snubbed films and never forgetting our corny comic book and sci-fi roots (yes we love the Marvel movies and crapfests like Jupiter Ascending).

We normally get a decent start on this list but not this year, we have plenty to watch, write, talk and think about.

American Sniper 
Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) 
Boyhood 
The Grand Budapest Hotel 
The Imitation Game 
Selma 
The Theory of Everything 
Whiplash 

Foxcatcher
Two Days, One Night
Still Alice
Gone Girl
Wild
Ida Poland
Leviathan Russia
Tangerines Estonia
Timbuktu Mauritania
Wild Tales Argentina
Citizenfour -Documentary
Finding Vivian Maier -Documentary
Last Days in Vietnam -Documentary
The Salt of the Earth -Documentary
Virunga -Documentary
Big Hero 6 
The Boxtrolls 
How to Train Your Dragon 2 
Song of the Sea 
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya 
Into the Woods
Pride
St. Vincent
Force Majeure (Sweden)
Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (Israel)

The films in bold we put a slightly stronger emphasis on since we skew towards the Academy Award nominees. I personally love the foreign films, but they are often difficult to find, haven’t watched all of the 2014 nominees yet.
