FIRST MOVIE WATCHED OF 2014 (Number 72)

Starting off the year 2014 with a rewatch of one of my personal favorite comedies, Clue is a classic cult comedy that through the years keeps getting better and funnier with each rewatch. This is a nearly perfect comedy as jokes are constantly being thrown onscreen and they rarely if ever miss the mark of being hilarious. There are many reasons why Clue works. The cast is excellent featuring great and hilarious performances from nearly everybody on screen, including Tim Curry's probably best performance I ever seen him in as the butler Wadsworth. It is a cool bottle-style film that all takes place in this cool-looking mansion that looks big and elaborate.

LAST MOVIE WATCHED OF 2014 (Number 89)

This is just an absolutely beautiful film and is just full of charm that many mainstream animated films can't emulate. The story feels like an old legend that was passed down from generations being brought to life in the most visually-satisfying way. The characters are interesting and believable but special mention goes to Aisling whom really steals the movie.

Favorite Song Featured in a Netflix Film

"Who I'd Be", Shrek the Musical

This category goes to a memorable song that was featured in a Netflix film. Whether they were catchy, grand, or heartwarming, these songs certainly left an impact on my ears. As soon as I finished streaming these films, I had these songs stuck in my head where I hum them, whistle them, or sung them when I was reminded of these grand tunes. The winner of this category would go to the most memorable song that gave me goosebumps upon listening to it (or something close to that).

Honorable Mentions:
“I’ll Make A Man Out of You”, Mulan
Every Single Song, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
“Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon”, Pulp Fiction
“America”, West Side Story
“Main Title/Trees to Dogs”, Clue

Best Performance from a Netflix Film

Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible in "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog"

This category is to celebrate all the great and significant performances made in a movie I've streamed that really gripped me and awed me in the magnificence of how these actors were able to portray and become their memorable characters. This award goes to the most memorable performance and to the actor that was able to portray this memorable performance.

Honorable Mentions:
Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump in “Forrest Gump”
Christen Mooney as Aisling in “The Secret of Kells”
Ted Levine as Buffalo Bill in “The Silence of the Lambs”
Jack Lemmon as Jerry in “Some Like It Hot” and C.C. Baxter in “The Apartment”
Ming-Na Wen/Lea Salonga as Fa Mulan in “Mulan”
Brian d’Arcy James as Shrek in “Shrek the Musical”
Michael Rennie as Klaatu in “The Day the Earth Stood Still”
Johnny Yong Bosch as Vash the Stampede in “Trigun: Badlands Rumble”
Tim Curry as Wadsworth in “Clue”
Ellen Page as Libby in “Super”

Worst Performance from a Netflix Film

Ryan Gosling as Julian in "Only God Forgives"

This category is to showcase the performances that really irked and annoyed me immensely. Whether the performance came from a good movie or not, this category is specifically judging the quality of these annoying performances. Whether the performance was legitimately bad or just ear-piercingly annoying, the "winner" of this award went to the performance that nearly ruined or added salt to the wound of the featured movie.

Dishonorable Mentions:
Brendan Gleeson as Abbot Cellach in “The Secret of Kells”
Quentin Tarantino as Jimmie in “Pulp Fiction”
Gabriel Basso as Martin Read in “Super 8”
Natalie Wood as Maria in “West Side Story”

Best Ensemble Performance from a Netflix Film

Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, and Ving Rhames, “Pulp Fiction”

This category is not just awarding the great performance of one actor/character but multiple that occurred in one film. When a film is filled with capable actors that provide plenty of spectacular performances, oftentimes difficult to judge which actor stood out from the rest. The winner of this award goes to the film with the greatest ensemble of spectacular actors and performances that they become one of the key reasons why the film works the way it does.

Honorable Mentions:
-Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, Nathan Fillion, and Simon Helberg, “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”
-Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Eileen Brennan, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren, and Colleen Camp, “Clue”
-Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, Ted Levine, and Scott Glenn, “The Silence of the Lambs”
-Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, and Joe E. Brown, “Some Like It Hot”
-Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray, “The Apartment”
-Brian d’Arcy James, Sutton Foster, Daniel Breaker, Christopher Sieber, and John Tartaglia, “Shrek the Musical”
-Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy, BD Wong, Miguel Ferrer, Harvey Fierstein, Gedde Watanabe, Jerry Tondo, James Hong, Pat Morita, “Mulan”
-Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, and Nathan Fillion, “Super”

Favorite Director Featured in Multiple Netflix Films

Billy Wilder, “The Seven Year Itch”, “Some Like It Hot”, and “The Apartment”

This category is dedicated specifically to the directors who interested me in how they produced their films that I decided to watch another one of their films. Providing an unique and interesting cinematic vision, these directors made memorable films that made me want to continue checking out their works. Also, if I wanted another film from a director in 2014 that I've seen in 2013, it will count for next year's awards.

Honorable Mentions:
Quentin Tarantino, “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction”
Robert Zemeckis, “The Polar Express” and “Forrest Gump”
Robert Wise, “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “West Side Story”

Least-Favorite Film of 2014

I was not actively trying to check awful films on Netflix, so for the films in these categories. I don't particularly hate these films, even the "winner" of this category isn't a movie I think that is particular horrible. These are just the films that are either bad quality-wise or I feel is an uninteresting product.

Dishonorable Mentions:
West Side Story

Favorite Film of 2014

There were some incredible movies that I've streamed on Netflix this year. Some were classics that were created by beloved filmmakers, some were more overlooked gems that really surprised me, and some I am considering to be personal favorites. These are the ultimate films that made me grateful that I have a Netflix account since I might not have been able to check out these films without it.

Honorable Mentions:
The Silence of the Lambs
Pulp Fiction
The Secret of Kells
The Apartment
Some Like It Hot
Super 8
Trigun: Badlands Rumble

Okay, I'll admit I've been pretty late to this. 2014 started off being good with a whole bunch of movies being watched along with the start of my Netflix Romancethon where I watched a bunch of Romantic movies for February... but then, I just stopped for it. Technically, I didn't even update the list until 2016. I briefly made the switch to monthly film logs. That was also put on a hold. Now, I'm kind of doing both at the same time. Honestly, it's getting harder and harder to watch movies. Life gets you busy but I'll try to bring things back to when this little list I made a couple of years ago was used to cap off the film year with all the movies watched. I'll do this one for 2014 and 2015 and see how many films I'll get to watch in 2016. So... for 2014, I managed to watch 18 movies. Certainly less than the 71 I watched last year but still not a bad number considering this was the year the list went on hiatus. There will definitely be less categories than last time because of it but I'll try to make it work with fewer options. So maybe I can get things back into shape... please forgive me for my tardiness.

Anyway, here is the list where these films were being chosen from:

Hope you'll enjoy! :)
