What I've Watched In 2014

As I have continued to do since 2012, I documented all I've watched (projected/digital movies, documentaries and completed episodic series) in 2014. During the turn of the year, I continued to reflect on what I watched that past year during my insomniacal hours that have replaced sleep - ESPECIALLY the summer, fall, and winter of 2014 as I had A LOT MORE TIME whilst healing from a broken foot! As always, I'm carrying on my tradition of declaring my personal favorites.

Happy new year to all... and remember, these are not strictly "made in 2014" titles... Rather, it's everything I visually (and mentally) absorbed DURING 2014 which I have never seen (or seen completed) in my lifetime.

The following are my "Top 14" in relative order:

Gravity
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Interstellar
Mr. Nobody
The Place Beyond the Pines
The Debt
Warrior (2011)
The Time Traveler's Wife
Black Mirror (UK initial series)
The King's Speech
Frequencies
The Lego Movie
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Honorable mentions worth... mentioning:
Savages, Lone Survivor, Sabotage, Dark Tourist, Her, Donnie Darko (Director's Cut), Fringe (US series)
