Film Log 2014

Here is my list of movies watched in 2014. I think I did a pretty good job of not missing any this year, but that’s always a possibility. The films that I especially liked are in bold, and the ones that I especially did not are in italics, and the ones I reviewed are underlined (I’m not going to link them here, if you want to read the reviews, put the title in the search box to the right there and it should come right up).  The titles marked with a * denote a short (less than 50 minute) film.  Also, I only bold or italicize on my first viewing of the film.  I love JOHN DIES AT THE END, but as I watched it last year, it’s not highlighted this year.

One thought on “Film Log 2014

  1. Looks like you had an incredible year for movie watching. The curious thing is that we watched many of the same films last year. Wrong and Wrong Cops are both bizarrely fascinating…and I don’t know why they work so well. Pontypool is a very clever and intense little movie…I hesitate to say “zombie flick” because it is more of a paranoid thriller. Bad Milo is the best movie about an ass demon ever made.
