2014 Buckle Awards

The 2014 Buckle Awards. Not much to say, other than this was hard to narrow down and on another day I might have gone with a different nominee, or even winner.
But, every film and person and achievement is more than worthy of recognition, even if they don't get it at the Oscars (for the most part, unlikely).

What is interesting is that Inside Llewyn Davis was considered for last years awards - in fact it was the first film I watched in 2014 - but it received no nominations at all. What was I thinking? I have enjoyed it even more over subsequent viewings but I have not included it here. So, you never know how are you going to feel 12 months, 5 years or 10 years down the track. This is 2014 in review.

  1. Great picks man. What We Do In the Shadows was such a riot. I literally had no idea what it was about going in, only that you and Sam recommended it. Great call there.

    Mommy still hasn’t come out here yet, which is a real shame. I love Dolan’s other work, and am aching until his latest is here.

Much like a game of chance, life unfolds in unpredictable ways, and love, with its myriad complexities, becomes the ultimate wager. Sometimes, we find ourselves swept away by the exhilarating rush of victory, as love rewards us with boundless joy and fulfillment. Yet, there are moments when we stand at the edge of risk, contemplating whether to place our hearts on the line, knowing that the outcome may not always be in our favor.
