I watched 66 new to me movies this year (that’s up 4 from last year).  I wrote two Book vs. Movie posts (Jack Reacher & Gone Girl –still time to vote in the polls), wrote a few Friday film talks and continued my 5 word movie reviews asking for your participation and help for charity.  Please consider adding your thoughts to these reviews since they count towards money for charity, maybe even yours!

My 5 favorite movies this year

St Vincent poster.jpgSt. Vincent. One of my two favorite movies this year had humor, redemption, and a surprising amount of heart.

A man and a woman, wearing battle armour with big guns, and looking battle-worn, stand against an urban background devastated by war. The sky is golden, meteors are falling and in the background Nelsons column can be seen.Edge of Tomorrow.  My other favorite movie was Groundhog Day with guns and aliens.

Two adults and two children in a group hugThe Impossible. Based on the true Thai tsunami, this movie drew me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until I’d gone through a few tissues.

Austenland Poster.jpgAustenland. Sweet, funny and perfect for Austen lovers.

MockingjayPart1Poster3.jpgMockingjay. Katniss still kicking ass and winning respect.

My most hated movie this year- Lucy.
