Here’s The Final Stretch of 2014…

PATHS OF GLORY – Quite a chipper choice to see out the year, doncha think?

Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Never Seen
TROIS COULEURS: ROUGERemind me not to choose a trilogy for a blindspot entry ever again, OK?
VENUS IN FUR – A pretty good adaptation, but I have no idea what happened to the end
PRIDE – Gotta love it when the missus points ya towards something swell

Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Seen Beforex
NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION – I think I actually watched pieces of this three times before finally sitting through it end-to-end this year
WHITE CHRISTMAS – Of all the tunes in this film, I’ve had the Minstrel Number in my head for weeks
DIE HARD – Someone tell me why the last three in the series weren’t set at Christmas
SKYFALLIs it time for SPECTRE yet?
ELF – “I know him!”
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFEMy heart grows three sizes every time.
THE APARTMENTIf I was smarter, I would have made this the New Year’s Eve selection
BATMAN RETURNS – I really need to start making this part of the Christmas Eve viewing
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXYYeah, still awesome
THOR: THE DARK WORLD Still my call as the weakest Marvel movie so far
