Turkey Films 2014

It's time for the annual Thanksgiving ritual. No, not sitting down to eat the big bird with family and friends. I mean coming up with the top "turkey films". You remember the rules. You substitute turkey for one of the words in the movie title. You don't use dinde or Turkei unless you're French of German. (But come to think of it why are you reading this or eating Thanksgiving dinner if you are French or German?)

Last year was Oscars. This year, we focus simply on films released since last Thanksgiving. Here they are, then, the top ten turkey movies of 2014:
  • InterTurkey
  • The Hunger Games: MockingTurkey (part 1)
  • Turkeys of the Galaxy
  • Gone Turkey
  • Turkeycrawler
  • The Theory of Turkey
  • Turkey of Tomorrow
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Turkeys
  • Sin City: A Turkey to Kill For
  • X-Turkeys: Days of Turkeys Past
And as a bonus, here are three American literary novels being read by one of my daughters in school (at least one was made into a movie):
  1. One Flew over the Turkey's Nest
  2. All the Pretty Turkeys
  3. The Turkeys they Carried

Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble, gobble.
