I mentioned a lot of films for 2014 that have at least raised my curiosity. Most don’t have trailers out yet. When they do I’ll be able to make a better judgement or give the film the axe. But for now, these are the ones I’m watching.
“Captain American: The Winter Soldier”
The original may actually be my favorite film in the Avenger series.
“The Hobbit: There and Back Again”
Yes, there’s stuff after Smaug.
The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.
A new Andy and Lana Wachowski movie I know very little about. Just like with M. Night Shyamalan, despite the dreadful “Speed Racer” and The Matrix 2 & 3, I will go see their movie.
“In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen’s reign.”
BIG SCREEN MATERIAL
“The Lego Movie”
Stories told with Lego people = Fun. Look it up.
IN THE QUEUE
A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.
“Muppets Most Wanted”
I yearn for the good old days of “The Muppet Show”. The movie will have to do.
“300: Rise of an Empire”
I saw “300” four times. I took all my friends. They all hated it. Fine. More for me.
SECOND TIME’S A CHARM
“How to Train Your Dragon 2”
I love the art work and the characters. It should be great to watch.
CAN YOU BELIEVE…
“The Expendables 3”
I’m a fan of almost all of these action heroes and still watch their movies. But stop. Go make other films.
DID YOU KNOW…
What do Taylor Swift, Katie Holmes, and Meryl Streep have in common. “The Giver”!
In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.
An extremely wealthy elderly man, dying from cancer, undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness to the body of a healthy young man, but all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origin and the secret organization that will kill to protect its cause.
