How many films did you manage to see this year? Are you over 100? Did you somehow manage to sneak past 200? That’d be beyond impressive. Yet, even if you strapped yourself to a theater chair and propped your eyes open, Clockwork Orange-style, the odds remain that there are a handful of titles that flew under your radar.

That’s where we'd love to help. While editors are busy compiling Top 10 lists brimming with this year’s "Usual Suspects" (hello, Boyhood, Selma and Birdman), we wanted to put together a list of 10 tremendous movies that you might have missed. It’s likely that you heard something about these films, but they either didn’t make it to a theater near you, or you failed to catch it on the week or two that it screened. No worries. Go through this feature, add the films you missed to your To-Do list, and start 2015 off on a strong foot… by screening the greatest underseen gems from 2014!

Under the Skin
Under the Skin
Initially known as "the movie where Scarlett Johansson gets naked," Under the Skin started winning much different praise once audiences got a look at Jonathan Glazer’s trippy exhibit. ScarJo plays an alien – for real – who traipses around Scotland luring unsuspecting men into her disturbing van so she can "feed" them to the mysterious force that possibly gives her life? I’m not really sure if that’s accurate, but it’s a blast watching Johansson act like the bait for a bizarro bit of social commentary. Glazer’s movie has a chilling tone, with fantastic use of audio and video gimmicks. And yes, Scarlett Johansson gets naked. So there’s that.
