2014 – The Year in Review

February 22, 2015 at 6:30 pm | Posted in 2014 | Leave a comment

I saw fewer films this year than over the past several years.  Just 57 2014 films, as opposed to 71 each of the past two years.  I not really sure why that is.  IN both of the last two years, I have about 1/3 of the films I saw in the bottom half of my rating system.  However, I did notice that in, 2013, I had almost twice as many films in my lowest rankings (1 and below) as I did this year, so perhaps I am becoming more selective or, perhaps, there were just slightly fewer films that excited me this year.  I guess time will tell us if this is a new trend or not.

As with last year, I have ranked films under the number of lozenges I gave them, focusing on just those films I truly loved.  They are in roughly descending order.
