The Must-Watch Movies of 2014 (Part 1)

Just last week, I enjoyed 2 movies in 1 week: The Lego Movie and Starting Over Again! 🙂 Well, today let me put together for you another special: The Must Watch Movies of 2014. If you trust my taste in movies just like my husband (and he is my inspiration in putting this up), when he calls me in wee hours just to ask what movie he could watch or download (go, bookmark!), I’m sure you can also enjoy this post.

In case you didn’t know yet, I’m one BIG movie buff! My husband and I have a secret stash of Blu-Ray DVDs and an external drive full of TV series (like Smallville, NCIS, The Last Airbender, Heroes, Army Wives, Prison Break, etc.) that we collected since we got together. In my spare time if I’m not blogging or taking care of the house or N, I usually sit back and enjoy watching movies a lot. I like watching all kinds of movies EXCEPT horror!

So there it goes — the list of my must-watch movies of 2014! I hope you find this little movie guide extra helpful in taking a sneak peek of what to expect on the big screen. I will post “The Must Watch Movies of 2014 (Part 2)” next Friday so be sure to swing by again.

Please also consider this as my kick-off post since I will be starting a Friday regular post here called, “Flick Pick of the Week.” I will review and recommend movies (both old and new) that you, your movie date or the entire family can watch over the weekend.

What movie are you  excited to watch this 2014 from the list? ♥

*Subject to change by the film distributors. The dates are my estimated local showing dating forecast.
