As we march into the new year and prepare ourselves for upcoming awards shows, it’s appropriate to reflect on the best movies of 2014. As usual, the year produced sure bets from well-known auteurs and a strong crop of art-house darlings, but we also had terrific pictures emerge from the much-derided cinematic mainstream. In fact, a number of blockbusters cracked my top 10. Following is the cream of the 2014 movie crop, complete with notes on how you can see them.

This year, Christmas week is slow in terms of home video. Still, two small titles are worthy of mention, and both were inspired by real-life events.
It’s an excellent week for home video, with three outstanding movies, including a big-budget science-fiction epic, making their way to the small screen.
This week’s home video releases include an offbeat comedy featuring Steve Carell, the latest animated film from Pixar and a drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson.
This week’s DVD releases cover a lot of territory. They include a family film from the director of “Spy Kids,” a holiday comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon, an Adam Sandler feature helmed by writer-director Judd Apatow and a big-budget thriller starring Tom Hanks.
This week’s DVD releases include two animated films and an unusual relationship drama by director Steven Soderbergh.
