Fifty-two volumes of the weekly watch were posted to the blog this year. That's right I didn't miss a single week. I watched at least one movie each week, with my highest week at eight movies. Check out my previous reviews!

I watched one-hundred and sixty-one movies in the year. Here are my top and bottom picks for the year. This is based simply on the movies I watched this year, not on what was released this year.
Check out the 2014 Year-end review.
