My top 10 movies of 2014

These were my 10 favorite movies of 2014:

1. "Dumb and Dumber To" – Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels effortlessly slip back into Lloyd and Harry's born-of-stupidity mistreatment of animals and their fellow man, but this isn't merely a reunion tour. The sequel has lots of great new hits, like Harry getting into Arizona State and being mistaken for an eccentric genius and Lloyd being attracted to Harry's daughter. (It's not like he's going to go out with someone his own age -- "Gross!")


My top 10 TV shows of 2014

These were my 10 favorite shows of 2014:

1. "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" (Season 6, Netflix) – "The Clone Wars" saved the best for last with arcs delving into the Order 66 brainwashing, Palpatine's manipulations to take over the galactic banking system, and Yoda's surprising encounter with a dark avatar and his first communication with a beyond-the-grave Qui-Gon. Even the "Jar Jar in Love" arc worked due to the Gungan's odd-couple banter with Mace Windu. While Ahsoka was certainly missed in this straight-to-Netflix season, she nonetheless felt like the absent center of this canceled-too-soon series. We can only hope that the storylines will continue in books, comics or "Star Wars: Rebels."
