We’re half-way through 2014, which means we’ve arrived at my semi-annual look at the best and worst movies of the past six months.

From January through June, I saw 26 movies (a light load, I know… chalk it up to my semi-retirement, which I have since emerged from). Some of the films were good, some bad, but all of them had something to offer.

Without further ado, away we go…
