This book will not be out soon enough to satisfy some podcasters.

So, this week’s Gabbing Geek podcast (trademarked and copyrighted by Jimmy Impossible in a sudden coup d’etat) largely covered the first two (and only existing) novels in the Red Rising trilogy.  Since I now write for these fine, if geeky, folks, I will now instead of writing my usual e-mail just post directly to their website.

We like Joss Whedon over here at Gabbing Geek. We like him because he’s given us some great movies and TV, and while we don’t expect him to slow down on that front, we especially like him since he spoke out about  the lack of female-led superhero films.

Disney is going to make so much money in 2015 they’re recreating the Duck Tales title sequence in their offices.

 

2015 is not going to break records at the box office.  2015 is going to utterly demolish box office records on the heels of two mega-performers and a market that is ready to have some fun in the movie theater again.  Especially after this downer of an Oscar season.  But what ten movies am I boldly predicting will be the top in the 2015 box office?  Before we get to the top ten, let’s see what nine films will miss the cut.

redcarpetu

Ah.  Now we get to the cream of the crop!  The ten best films of 2014!  Hope you enjoyed your year of films as much as I did mine.  This was a strong year for movies; both blockbuster and arthouse.  While there wasn’t an all-time Hall of Fame entry (like Dark Knight or Godfather), we did have many 5 star worthy films.   Any of these ten films would have been a worthy choice for #1, in fact many of them even flirted with the top spot during the year, but when the dust settled here was the final list.
