Best Movies of 2014

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Do you hear that noise? Its the sweet sound of being done with finals. No more studying. No more quizzing myself. No more rewarding myself for a good study session with chocolate chips.  I always seem to forget how bad finals week is, between the lack of sleep and the stress of reviewing a whole semester's worth of information in just a few weeks. Fortunately, it is over and I did well! To make things even better, I am home and well-rested (and well fed)! It took a couple days to get it back, but I am anxious to put my blog mojo to good use! I have so much catching up to do...I am sad about how much I have missed the past two weeks in the blogging world! I am dedicating tomorrow to catching up on all the posts I've missed (and maybe wrapping some presents!)  
In my last post, I mentioned that I am a lover of all things related to TV/movies, so I thought I would continue on with that subject in this post. I love going to the movies, so I compiled a few of my favorites that came out this year! 

1. Guardians of the Galaxy
I am not sure if I have mentioned this before on the blog, but I love superhero movies...especially Marvel ones! When I saw first heard about Guardians of the Galaxy was coming out, not only was I excited for a new superhero, but also for Chris Pratt, duh. I loved that his character formed a team of mismatched heroes and they totally left the ending opening up for a sequel! 

2. Neighbors
When I saw the commercial for this movie, I laughed and thought that I had just seen all the funny parts in the movie. My school offered a free showing of this movie so I thought I would go, just to see if maybe there was more to it. I think I only saw 50% of the movie because I was laughing too hard to pay attention. I am a big Seth Rogen fan, and it was funny for him to play a "dad" character. 

3. Tammy
So I saw this in theaters in the spring when it first came out and if I had been asked afterwards what I thought, I think I would have said "ehh". I really didn't appreciate the movie until I saw it again in the fall. Some parts are kind of cheesy and other parts make you feel painfully awkward for Melissa McCarthy's character, but overall its funny and heartwarming. I love movies that make you feel a whole range of emotion, and this definitely does that! 

4. 22 Jump Street
Ugh, is this embarassing? Movies that make me laugh out will always rank near the top of my list! What I liked about this movie is that there was a lot of dialogue poking fun at the fact that is was a sequel and who doesn't love seeing Channing Tatum running around as an undercover cop?!

5. Gone Girl
This is the only drama movie on the list, and I know that there should be more, but I like comedy okay?? I liked this movie so much because it stayed true to the book (probably because the author also wrote the screenplay). If any of you have not read the book, I would suggest reading it before seeing the movie! Actually, is there anyone who wouldn't suggest reading the book before seeing the movie when it comes to movies made from books?!

I know my list is cheesy and if you don't like comedies, then you probably rolled your eyes a lot during this post. But its okay, because I know I have a weird taste in movies! Let me know some of your favorite movies of 2014!


  1. Congrats on being done with finals!!!! Im sure that's a HUGE relief!
    I've only seen 3 out of 5 that you mentioned, but Gone Girl is my favorite on your list :)

  2. I haven't seen any of these, hahaha, oooops!


  3. Gone Girl was def my favorite!

  4. I am SO sad that I haven't seen any of these yet! Neighbors is definitely first on my list ;)

  5. I want to see Guardians of the Galaxy so bad! When I first saw the trailer, I thought it looked super stupid, but everyone says it's so good! I saw Gone Girl in France... it was so bizarre (in a great way). I'm reading the book now.
