It’s that time of the year again. No, not of shopping mall Christmas carols and rowdy holiday crowds (though, yes, those too). Instead I’m talking about Google’s annual lists of the top search terms for the year. Naturally that includes movies and though South Africa didn’t specifically get treated with a top movie searches list, we do know what the world was into. The most searched for movies of 2014 were:

frozen

1. Frozen
2. Interstellar
3. Divergent
4. Gone Girl
5. Lone Survivor
6. Godzilla
7. 22 Jump Street
8. Big Hero 6
9. Annabelle
10. Maleficent

Following up on Kervyn’s recent top trailers of the year, here are the most searched-for trailers:

A total movie glutton, nothing is too bad or too obscure to watch, unless it's something like The Human Centipede. If you enjoyed that, there is something wrong with you. But bless you anyway - even video nasties need love...
