Inspired by this lovely chap, here's a rundown of my favourite films of 2014 so far.
Shamefully, you'll notice a few noticeable absences of this list of everything I've seen up until now - the likes of Under the Skin, Blue Rein and The Grand Budapest Hotel were missed. Terrible, I know... but sometimes there just isn't the time to see everything!
TOP 10 FILMS (SO FAR!)
Honourable mentions: The Wind Rises, The Lego Movie, The Raid 2
10: Guardians of the Galaxy
9: Edge of Tomorrow
7: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
6: X-Men: Days of Future Past
5: Next Goal Wins
4: Inside Llewyn Davis
3: 12 Years a Slave
2: The Wolf of Wall Street
As a bonus, I'd intended to write up my favourite TV shows of the year... when it hits me, how little I've actually watched on TV this year. Damn.
It's been a better year for comics. I've read a mountain of the things! The following list is compiled of lots of books, published over many years:
