From Noah to Jupiter Ascending, These are the Movie Turkeys to AVOID in 2014

As I've already explained, 2014 is looking like a blockbusting year for the silver screen, with some massive movies set to hit cinemas right the way across the next twelve months. But the multiplex is never free of the odd turkey, and 2014 looks to have its fair share of those too. Read More >>
