Mr. Peabody & Sherman, directed by Rob Minkoff, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while Things That Matter by Charles Krauthammer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching House of Fools. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Evil Within or Mario Kart 8.
