The Retrieval (2014)
It Felt Like Love (2014)
Dancing In Jaffa (2014)
"Browning got more effect out of a few rats than Herzog gets with thousands, and Klaus Kinski's (Count Dracula) over-the-top makeup and acting, seen in color and with many close-ups, is just too much for anything other than a Hammer Studios film... "
Bayou Blue (2014)
The Strange Woman (1946)

The Congress (2014)
Nothing Bad Can Happen (2014)
L' Uomo puma (The Puma Man) (1980)
The Thing That Couldn't Die (1958)
"This one gets points for general weirdness (how many films use dowsing as a plot device?). Besides, often bad movies inspire the best riffs, so you can't ever really lose when it comes to MST3K flicks. "

Gasland Part II (2013)
Geography Club (2013)
"The main problem with Geography Club, however, is the oddly choppy storytelling by director Gary Entin and screenwriter Edmund Entin (they're brothers) and their handwaving use of some really absurd plot twists "
Short Term 12 (2013)

Men at Lunch (2013)
"Three of the finalists-"Helium," "Just Before Losing Everything," and "It Wasn't Me"-are all excellent in different ways, while the remaining two-"The Voorman Problem" and "Do I Have to Take Care of Everything?"-are not quite as strong... "
"Uniquely among the nominees this year, "Feral" pays its audience two compliments: it doesn't spell everything out, and it doesn't confine itself to a naturalistic narrative; both choices are well-supported by distinctive, pseudo-primitive art. "
