Jay’s Best and Worst of the Summer 2014




Here are my Best and worst films of the summer of 2014. I picked five films I like that made a lot of money and five films that I didn’t care for or were okay at best and flopped at the box office. I added in two surprise hits that no one saw was going to be a hit including me. (Of course I have an excuse)
