My 2014 Movie Viewing Recap: Part II - Best & Worst (Non-2014)

I usually save my actually best and worst of the year for around Oscar time because a) it gives me more time to catch up on what I missed, and b) does anyone really care outside of me? But, in the mean time, here is the best and worst of what I saw for the first time in 2014 not including actual 2014 releases.
