Movies I have seen 2014

by ainsliefan | created - 23 Mar 2014 | updated - 01 Jan 2015 | Public

A very diverse list of movies I have seen since January 1st 2014. ..... As the new year starts, this list ends, but that just means a new list! Sadly, I failed to achieve my initial goal, a movie for each day of the year, but came close. I saw some good movies, some great movies, and of course some downright awful movies. I also watched some new, some new to me, some old and some old favourites that will probably (assuredly) show up on this years list too. So with a somewhat saddened heart I now close my list of 2014, but with the added anticipation of seeing how my new list will compare. Ciao
