2014 Movie Awards

Another year has come and gone. If you remember the past few years, I have done my personal movie awards. Well, this will be the 7th annual “Let’s All Go to the Movies Movie Awards”

The rules are simple…nominated films are those that I have seen and reviewed in the past year. In other words, these awards, unless otherwise noted, are for films I’ve reviewed this year, and don’t necessarily reflect those that were released in 2014 (except for that particular category). So, if I saw a film in 2008 and then watched it again this year, it is not eligible. Get it? Got it? Good. Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who comes by and reads this little ol’ blog of mine. A special thanks to those who voted for the “People’s choice”. For all of these, with the exception of worst film, it was a hard decision, let me tell ya!

Stay tuned in the next year for even more movies that range from obscure to suckfest to mega blockbusters (and don’t be afraid to leave a comment or two).
