Last year there were films I enjoyed, but mostly I was just really underwhelmed. This year, however, it was really hard to narrow it down to fifteen films. I think part of this was living in Los Angeles and being able to see those little films that only play for a week in some small theater. I’m so grateful to be able to do that! If you are interested in all of the 2014 releases I saw this year, you can check out the full list here.
I honestly can’t believe how fast July just disappeared! I guess it probably didn’t help that I spent the long 4th of July weekend sick and last weekend at Comic-Con (where time flies by super fast, but also feels like a month instead of five days). I didn’t watch the equivalent of a movie a day again this month, but I did re-watch about 15 episodes of Gilmore Girls (I just really need to watch all the major Rory/Jess episodes!), finished the last four episodes of FX’s Fargo, watched all of season 1 on Hannibal in two nights and started watching HBO’s The Leftovers (though I am two episodes behind). Also, during those five days at Comic-Con I didn’t watch any movies, but I did see the pilot episodes of The Flash and Constantine. I imagine August will just as full of television, as I hope to get my hands on season 2 of Hannibal, Boardwalk Empire comes back and I want to watch Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick. I think I’ll add my television escapades into this wrap-up every month from now on as well. As for movies, I watched a lot of 2014 releases that I highly recommend.
