. Welcome back to "Access Hollywood". Mid year round up. Time now to talk movies. Studio usually wait until the end of the year to release the best film. Or do they? Turns out there has been quite a few great movie so far this year. I'm joined by our "Access Hollywood", film critic Scott movie man and wewell welcome back Malone from fan dang O. I start with you. Let's begin with Quinn again. Thinks such a beautiful, lovely, up lifting movie. With Adam levip who is really good and mark Ruffalo. People were surprised. Directed and written by the same gay behind want the small beautiful film now musical and this has original music sung by miss knightly. She is really good. You like it time. Has a lot of heart. It does. You feel the emotion of what it is like to fall in love with your soul mate and mark and she make beautiful music together. How to train your dragon 2 great review. But the Lego movie in your opinion was even better. I thought this was going to be a cash grab to tell toys boy was I wrong. This is a wild whacky trip imaginative movie. Great animation. Awful story. Awesome music. A awesome music. A lot of humor. All the buhumor. All the building blocks. I went there. Everything is awesome. In this movie. It's wall to wall joke which appeal to everyone. Also this is a movie I call it now front runner for best animated feature at next year oscars. I was wondering if you were going to good there. I'm going there. All right now directed some pretty amazing movies like rush more and the royal tenenbaum but tell us why the grand Budapest motel is actually one of the best. Well I think because it's the pacing. So much going on in the movie. Plot. Sub plot. Whacky zaney character. I love seeing the cast. A lot of tell favorites plus if rare comedy role. Reporter: I have never heard you rave as much about a movie as you have edge of tomorrow. In a really, really big wait a minute I assume. I'm obsessed obsessed with the movie. Again big surprise. Didn't expect it to be as grit as it is. Pulse pounding action scenes but smart clever fun. More human you expect and Tom cruise makes great movies this is one of the best and hello Emily blunt. You agree. Yes I think people will talk about female character as one of the best we have seen on screen. Like ground hog day with alien. Kind of film once you see it once you want to see it again and again. Reporter: Captain America the winter soldier that jumped the gun on the amazing "spider-man"2 when it started summer movie season back in April. Do you think that's better film. I think it's a better film. Not just a good comic book movie but great movie. 2 director that nobody had heard of in the film world but they did a smart thing by making it more of a political thriller and the action is really cool. Reporter: All right. Finally boy had all I say boy hood. Boy ho, boy what a movie unprecedented nothing like this evever done. Quite extraordinary. Bump it director got the same cast every year for 12 years including hawk and Arquette and young boy in the film if who ages from 8 until 19 and you see him grow up on the screen and it's really mind blowing. Like better than any special effect would you see. Fascinating to see these people grow up in front of your eye. It sound like a classic. Tomorrow L we'll see if all of these movies will be on your list. Stay tune. Thanks so much this is really fun. Thank you. (Bleep). (Bleep). No. No.
