    1) Guardians of the Galaxy
    2) Planet of the Apes
    3) Godzilla
    4) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (yeah, I really liked it a lot)
    5) 22 Jump Street

    I'm a huge fan of Dumb & Dumber but Dumb and Dumber To is a piece of shit. The most I got out of it were a couple of chuckles. *sigh* Biggest disappointment of 2014.

    Honestly I don't get how people expected a sequel of a 20+ year old movie would be good

    Adam Sandler hasn't done a decent film in years while Carrey's appearance in Kick Ass 2 was a lot better than anything Sandler could've done.

    Damn shame they killed off Carrey from Kick Ass 2 so soon.

    Not a stellar year for movies but my fav's are:

    5. Can't really think of a #5 spot so maybe Gone Girl or Annabelle (thought it had a good creep factor)
    4. Peabody and Sherman
    3. The Lego Movie
    2. Captain America Winter Soldier
    1. Guardians of the Galaxy (by far best movie of the year

    The rest were nothing special. Mostly disappointments.

    Out of the films I've seen already...

    1) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    2) X-Men: Days of Future Past
    3) Guardians of the Galaxy

    I'm kinda disappointed in that list. Its been a terrible year for horror flicks and I haven't seen much of whats come out in the past months. I'm amazed everybody keeps listing 22 Jump Street. I stopped watching half-way, the bromance comedy was way overkill.

    I am stacking up films to see (Gone Girl, Fury, Nightcrawler all sitting there needing to be watched and I am also awaiting John Wick).

    The only films that really stuck with me this year were The Raid 2 and I think I only saw Snowpiercer this year but that was technically a 2013 film. Such a thing is probably going to be a problem as I mainly watch things on DVD and that does mess things around a bit for me.

    Guardians of the Galaxy was an amusing distraction but I have no desire to ever see it again, though with the possible exception of the first two Blade films and The Punisher films that applies to basically every comic book turned film for me, including xmen DOFP. 22 jump street I felt the same about, though I did make me giggle a few times. Inbetweeners 2 was not as tight as the TV show or first film but still highly amusing. Predestination was one of the better time travel films I have seen in a while, though Edge of Tomorrow did OK as well. The Equalizer more or less scratched the itch that the lack of Bourne films caused, though thinking back The Purge: Anarchy and the Raid 2 again certainly helped. The Lego Movie was better than I expected, I might even watch it again one day.

    Enemies Closer was a pretty amusing Jean-Claude Van Damme film. Stupid as anything but exactly what I wanted that night.

    All in all meh really, though The Raid 2 really was most of what I wanted in a cheesy film.

    ....

    I just realised, no games really, no films really, not much TV, a few books but by no means many.... I have no recollection of what I did for entertainment this year. I think the most time would probably have been on machining/electronics youtube videos.

    Did you see The Babadook?

    On a side note I just watched The Equalizer, was pretty good! Kind of like Taken, better than Taken 2. Taken 3 is out in 3 weeks lol!
    'The Drop' with Tom Hardy is also very good!

    I watched Grand Budapest Hotel yesterday and it was such a marvellous experience of a film that I've not seen in years, that being because I disliked Wes Anderson's Royal Tenebaums and was put off from it but after deciding to go along with it I discovered one of the best 2014 films, or hell, of years to come by!

    By the way, if you don't like 4x3 AR films any more then you might hate this.

    Honestly I don't mind 4:3 it just depends on the TV and how it handles the ratio

    The 4x3 AR is handled ideally because it takes back to the times when the TV's were this resolution than 16x9 AR.

    I'm going to watch Moonrise Kingdom tomorrow.

    Need for Speed went under the radar for a lot of people, I don't know why they disliked it it's what The Fast and the Furious films were once about and I totally love that this film is exactly like it, and so, I hope they'll make a sequel.

    After Tokyo Drift (damn great soundtrack it has) I lost all interest I had for the F&F franchise since they decided to target a different audience than street races with awesome cars. It was pretty stupid of them to name the 4th movie of the F&F franchise as Fast and Furious which just created confusion and newcomers may think that's the first one rather than the fourth.

    Oh yeah, Justin Lin is in charge of the new Star Trek movie haha, that's gonna be hilarious! :lol:

    I might have to keep an eye on this as I haven't watched any movies this year. I've heard a lot of good things about the Marvel movies, of course, so I'll have to check those out.
