As you may have noticed there is a lot of James Bond and Fast and Furious in this list. I spent a week catching up with the Fast and Furious series before the release of the 7th movie. I’ve also been going through the James Bond movies with the companion reviews from Dan Benjamin and John Gruber. This list does not include movies I re-watched nor books I re-read.
