The year 2014 is coming to a close in a few short hours. Right now, I'm working on some stuff that will come out in 2015, but I'd still like to keep up with the (recent) tradition of listing the best things of the past year. Last year I did an extensive review on the top 5 movies, sports games, video games, books, TV shows, albums and CZsWorld videos. It took a long time to write, so this year I am going to simplify it so I can focus most of my efforts on making 2015 an even better year!
5) The LEGO Movie
4) The Grand Budapest Hotel
1) Gone Girl
I'm not doing that this year because I haven't been keeping track.
I didn't play any games from this year.
I have read less than 3 books this year, so probably not enough to do a list.
I could probably pull together a list, but unlike Film, television was nothing blog home about this year.
5) Happiness Is - Taking Back Sunday
4) Everyone's Out To Get Me - Get Scared
3) The Predator Becomes the Prey - Ice Nine Kills
2) Devil - Chiodos
1) Everything WIll Be Alright in the End
5) Au Jus Buveur
4) Dead Air
2) Dark Avenue of the Night
1) Spin Cycle
I've got a new video coming the moment 2015 arrives, so when the ball drops, come on back to CZsWorld. Until then...

CZsWorld has a new look for this new season. You'll notice changes on the CZsWorld Website, as well as all the social media pages across the web.
The goal is to have a unified image on all pages that screams both quality and creepy. The new look comes just in time for for all the updates on my big horror film that comes out in October. Stay tuned...

Today, I have three big announcements!
Au Jus Buveur
I am very pleased to release this month's film: Au Jus Buveur. Don't worry, it's in English. This is a psychological horror.
Two detectives sit down to dinner at a fancy French restaurant to discuss the case they are working on. Twenty-two people have gone missing from their small town, and they have a only a few ideas of what might be the cause. They soon discover that something strange is going on in the restaurant. Will Coby and Chuck be able to get to the bottom of it?
This was my final project for my Directing 1 class. What grade would you give me? Please let me know what you think in the comments!
I always encourage users to follow me on social media, and now you social media junkies can follow me on even more websites! Today I am revealing two new official CZsWorld social sites: Pinterest and Tumblr. Here is the new list, with ALL the links.
Visit CZs Homepage: http://czsworld.webs.com/
The idea behind adding more sites is not so that you can have more pages to follow. It's so you guys can share with different communities and help CZsWorld reach new audiences that wouldn't have normally found out about CZsWorld. So please, share Au Jus Buveur on these new networks and any other networks!!
I have also been working hard to bring my videos to two more demographics: the deaf and foreign language speakers! Over the last week, I have been adding subtitles to each of my videos, and within the next couple of weeks, every video with dialouge will have the option for Closed Captions.
So please, if you have friends who are deaf, hard of hearing, don't speak English, or just don't like sounds, share the CZsWorld YouTube channel with them! You'll find that my new video, Au Jus Buveur, supports subtitles! Just press the CC button in the lower right corner of the video player!
This was certainly a big day for CZsWorld, so please remember to comment on the new video, share with friends on the new social networks, and share the word of Closed Captions now available for my videos!

On New Years Eve, I posted a Top Movies, Books, Albums, Video Games, Sport Games and TV Shows of the Year Countdown. One month has passed since then. You are probably wondering why I haven't posted anything since then, and I'll get to that, but first I have to correct something I said last year.
Since a lot of films make their debut in December in order to be fresh in the minds of award committees, it often turns out that some of the years best films don't get watched until the following year. That's exactly what happened to me this year. I finally got around to seeing some of those films that came out in December, and I believe they all belong in the Top 5. Let's start with the new number five.
5 | The Wolf of Wall Street
Sorry Oblivion, but Martin Scorsese's most recent picture is one of the more interesting ones I've seen lately. I'm not going to lie, I hated it for the first hour. Maybe it was the fact that the inciting incident doesn't occur until about an hour and a half into the movie, or maybe it just took me that long to realize that Scorsese wasn't trying to make a typical Hollywood flick. "The Wolf of Wall Street" is basically the opposite of a movie. The character gets away with anything he wants and faces no real hardships. It's a unique, but compelling piece.
4 | Inside Llewyn Davis
Oftentimes, the Coen Brothers are criticized for having incredibly simplistic plots. "Inside Llewyn Davis" was suprisingly thought provoking. It features some very interesting characters, a simple and beautiful score, and just about no wasted time.
3 | Saving Mr. Banks
I got a lot more than I expected with "Saving Mr. Banks". I thought I was getting a movie about trying to win the film rights to a now iconic movie. I expected it to be scored primarily using song from "Mary Poppins". What I got, was both of these things and more. It still would have been a great movie if they has stuck with just scenes of Disney trying to convince P.L. Travers to let him do "Mary Poppins" with some classic tunes sprinkled in. Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson turn in excelling performances. What I hadn't anticipated was Travers's origin story, which was a charming subplot that shed light on how some elements of "Mary Poppins" came to be. The "new" score was also fantastic, and the classic tunes are still classic.
I have yet to see "Her" or "American Hustle" but this is probably the last you will hear from me on this topic. CZsWorld is not a movie review site, simply a movie site. That brings me to my next point.
I'd like to release something each month. January is not going to happen, but February and March are all but ready. Two live action films are coming your way, one a Dark Comedy and the other a Psychological Horror. Until then...

Before yesterday, I had begun uploading videos under the Creative Commons liscense. This allowed users to "Remix" my video using the the YouTube video uploader. My thought behind allowing you to do this was that people could create Trailers or use little portions of my video as stock footage for their films
Yesterday, a user used the YouTube Video Editor for reupload my video with no changes at all. This, I am not OK with. I was expecting users to use bits of my footage in a creative way, not to just rip off my movie. I have since changed the liscense on all but two of my videos (Channel Trailer and Fan Finder) to the Standard YouTube Liscense. This means, my videos are copyrighted and not available to the YouTube Video Editor. I apologize to those of you who used it lawfully, but I don't want people going around, just flat-out stealiing my videos.
If you want to use bits or pieces of my videos in your own projects, I don't want to leave you out in the cold. From now on I'll be issuing liscenses FOR FREE on a per user basis. Just send me an email (you can find my email on the Guest Services page), telling me what video you want to use and how it is going to be implemented in your project. I'll get back to you that same day and you'll be good to go.
Enjoy the rest of your Holiday Season, and be sure to come back here for the CZsWorld end of the year countdown before the end of 2013.

The CZsWorld Gift Shop is open for business again! Don't worry, everything in the shop is still going to be free, but I am implementing a button that allows you to "pay" for your product simply by making a tweet or facebook post about it.
I have started by bringing back some RCT3 downloads, and will slowly be adding to my wares as time goes on. For now, head on over to the Gift Shop and enjoy some free stuff!

Another week, another new CZsWorld feature for you. This time I am adding comments to many of the pages on the site. The best part about this is you don't need to sign up for a CZsWorld account or anything like that, you can do it right from your Google account.
In other news, I if you look on the sidebar, you'll notice some new buttons to help you easily follow CZsWorld on all of your favorite social networks. Let's try to boost those numbers as much as possible! Follow me on all your networks and share with your friends!
Finally, I am putting the Gift Shop under construction this week, expect an awesome new update next Monday!

You may have noticed that CZsWorld has a new look. It's all part of the restructuring proces I've been going through to make everything lineup with the new YouTube Channel look. Not only is there a new looks, but the new channels feature a "Channel Trailer". Check it out:
