You wouldn't dare... :ninja: Although, if you take a bullet and see something spectacularly crappy so the rest of us don't have to, go ahead. I'm looking at you, Paranormal Activity.

I bet Jonathan has already seen 15 movies in the future.

woo hoo, let's get this party started.

2014 movies:
1. American Hustle good acting, tight story, and incredible set design. However, it didn't do much for me.

Movies seen in 2014 (new movies in bold):
1. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues


Mostly low brow, slapstick, "stupid" humor. I laughed a bit, not really sure if it was because I wanted to laugh or if it was really funny. Most of it was dumb, but no one was expecting anything else.

1) The Way Way Back

I enjoyed this a lot. It wasn't a laugh at loud comedy, but had some funny moments. But it also had some very touching scenes. In some ways it reminded me of Adventureland where it falls in that comedy/coming of age drama land.

1. AMERICAN HUSTLE - 01/01/2014 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/Amanda and va_vacious - 3 out of 5 - Loved the mood. Loved the sets. THE CLOTHES WERE AH-MAH-ZING. I think I've watched too many episodes of BBC's HUSTLE to be pulled into the con story arch anymore.

New (to me) films in bold
1 ● West Side Story
Maria to Tony: "When you come, use the back door"
2 ● The Weird World of Blowfly
Another rock'n'roll rags-to-riches documentary, except Blowfly never got to the riches part. When I worked for Virgin we used to import and sell LOADS of Blowfly's (now) politically-incorrect records (Central London a particular hotbed for sales) and every so often we would play one just to get people out of the shop at the end of the work day. It's an acquired taste but I don't think its too much of a stretch to say Blowfly was amongst the very first rappers and probably influenced many of the more 'out there' hip-hop artists that followed behind him. This documentary just feels sad. Very sad. He's out there touring the world, trading on past glories and trying to eke out a living. He sold the rights to his thin-selling publishing only to then have his songs sampled by the likes of Beyonce thus earning $$$$$$$ for the new owners. Horrible story highlighting how the music industry just 'discards' people
3 ● One Night in Turin
I'd forgotten just how good this documentary about England's 1990 World Cup campaign was. (On Netflix streaming, sports fans) Great footage of all the stuff that went on both on and off the pitch. I was also reminded how much of a slug Tory Sports Minister Colin Moynihan was. Nothing more than Thatcher's ginger tampon.
4 ● The Guilt Trip
I was more intrigued to see this than perhaps was normal, mainly because I've always kinda liked Streisand as an actress. Turned out I shouldn't have been _that_ intrigued
5 ● The Rutles: All You Need is Cash
The more I watch this the cleverer - if not necessarily funnier - it gets
6 ● Matt LeTissier: Unbelievable
Goal-packed documentary about one of the best strikers the English game has ever seen.
7 ● World Cup Fever 1966
Documentary about England's only WC success, featuring some cleaned up footage from the matches I had never seen before. I have a sneaking suspicion that England win it again this year*

Only new movies…

1. The Beach - The soundtrack dated it a bit reminding me I probably would have enjoyed this movie more if I would have watched it a decade ago.  It was worth seeing once.
2. Monster High - 13 Wishes - This was cinematic genius!  I never wanted it to end. I could watch this everyday for the rest of my life.  Move over Danny Boyle because there's a new masterpiece in town.  This was the Breaking Bad of animated imitation high school films.  In other words…it could have been worse.

1.) Zu Warriors - A mid-grade martial arts film. Immortals battling unspeakable evil only observed by a single mortal girl who narrates the tale. It's short so that's a plus... and there's really very little story set-up. It is clearly a vehicle for special effects and martial arts-y fighting.

Movies seen in 2014 (new movies in bold):
1) The Way Way Back
2) The Nines

I realized partway through that I had seen this movie before. Needless to say it wasn't that memorable. Not terrible. I would give it a 6.

New to me in bold:

1. Safety Not Guaranteed - Netflix - 4/5

Reasonably solid indie film. Not amazing, but I liked it a lot, and I'm still thinking about it two days later.

Holy crap. As in 'crap full of holes'

Good fast-paced thriller. Plot flaws galore but still enjoyable, even second time round
