Everybody loves lists – it’s a genetic thing humans have. So here are our lists for the best and worst films we have seen during 2014. In our opinion, of course.

Biographies and their lead cast – four of the five drama film nominations – dominate this year’s Golden Globes, while whimsy and fancy dominate – four of the five - comedy/musical film nominations.

There are five nominees for Best Film and six for Outstanding British Film, an anomaly that underlines the British penchant for eccentricity, perhaps, reports Andrew L. Urban.
  BRINGING CAPTAIN NEMO BACK
Earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter said that Columbia Pictures had bought Alfred Gough and Miles Millar's script Captain Nemo, based on the fictional character of the same name. To the excitement of fans everywhere, the premise of the film was supposed to offer "a new take on the iconic antihero" first introduced to readers in Jules Verne's 1870s classic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

But, in our opinion, there should be a sixth slot for Lead Actor: (Englishman) Tom Hardy for Locke. And there is one Australian: Naomi Watts for St Vincent.
