AFI Movies of the Year: Who Is Their Best?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Movie Fanatic has started its Best of 2014 lists, with our Top 9 Animated Movies of 2014 and our Top 19 Movie Posters of 2014.

We’re not alone in starting the countdown as AFI (The American Film Institute) has launched their top 10, er 11 (!), of 2014. Guess the year was so fabulous, it expanded the list by one!

So, who made the list? Since AFI doesn’t rank them, it’s just a list of films, but the ones they included are notable and many will absolutely be up for Best Picture at next year’s Academy Awards.

What else is notable is what is missing. There is no mention of Gone Girl (a film that will be on our list in the coming weeks), but they did include two of our favorites with Nightcrawler and Whiplash.

We, for one, will include one on our top of 2014 list that arrived this summer… you know, the one that gave us those awesome Guardians of the Galaxy quotes.

Another thing that is interesting about this list -- other than one film, they all arrived in October or later.

Click through the slideshow below and discover the 11 best films of 2014, according to AFI.
