Summer Movie List 2014 – Completed

Movie Reel

In the beginning of the summer, I compiled a list of movies that I wished to watch before the summer was through. The plan was to give scores to every movie I watched on this list. However, I felt that leaving a comment was suffice. Movies marked with an (*) are new additions to the original list.

So without further delay I present the completed list:

Dallas-Buyers-Club-Feature

Dallas Buyers Club – Great performance by main cast. Matthew Mcconaughey is a rebel, hardass, and above all a survivor.

Frozen – Stunning visuals, catchy songs, almost cried at the end (almost) However, if the moral of the story is to not marry someone after a day, then why did she end up with a guy she meets after two days?.
