Movies and Books – 2014 edition

Well, this is a pretty simple post coming up. Keep in mind, these are movies I hadn’t yet watched or ones it’s been more than a couple of years since I watched them in their entirety. As a comparison, in 2013, I watched 77 movies and read 33 books. In 2014, I watched 56 movies and read 16 books. It was big for me as I finally finished “The Stand” after two years (well, more like a decade, but who’s counting).

At least in 2014, I also completed a book and a few short stories, even if I didn’t submit them.  But without further adieu, here are the movies and the books of 2014…
