New Year, New Films, and New Journeys to take!
Happy New Year folks! Hope everyone had a safe and festive New Year celebration. With the start of 2015, it brings a whole new year of films. Films that will win Oscars, make us laugh, cry, and also disappoint us. The anticipation is brewing to finally go back to a galaxy far, far away. But that's for another time. Lets do a quick look back at the best movies of each month from last year.
Big Bad Wolves and Jack Ryan:Shadow Recruit
The Lego Movie and Robocop
Enemy and The Grand Budapest Hotel
Captain America: The Winter Solider and Locke
X-Men Days of Futures Past and Chef
Snowpiercer and The Fault in Our Stars
Boyhood and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Guardians of the Galaxy and Calvary
The Equalizer and The Skeleton Twins
Birdman and Whiplash
Big Hero 6 and The Theory of Everything
Top Five and The Hobbit:Battle of the Five Armies
The best month of last year has to go to October. Four of my favorite films came out that month. It was a lot of fun.
Alright, lets get this started!
(W.R.)-mean Wide Release
The Woman in Black 2: Angels of Death, and [REC] 4: Apocalypse
Taken 3, Selma (W.R.), Inherent Vise (W.R.), Preservation, and Predestination
Reason: I never seen the second one of these movies. This one looks like it should be called The Fugitive 2
Reason: Well from the first trailer, I didn't like the look of this film. Slowly overtime it has grown on me. I'm looking forward to seeing Tim Roth, that guys is always so good in everything.
Reason: So, I'm still on media black out for this movie. I will be going in blind to see this.
The Wedding Ringer, Paddington, Blackhat, American Sniper (W.R.), Still Alice (W.R.), Son of a Gun, and Spare Parts
Reason: Mr. January, Kevin Hart, is back with a new comedy. Josh Gad plays a guy who is getting married and has no friends. So he hires Kevin Hart to be his best man.
Reason: This movie was pushed back from Christmas to now. I remember reading these books as a kid. So who knows how this will turn out.
Reason: Bradley Cooper has totally transformed into this role. Looks like it could be intense.
Strange Magic, The Boy Next Door, Mortdecai, Black Sea, Black or White, Red Army, and Against the Sun
Reason: I really enjoy movies that play with the things in the news. This movie is about a teacher who decides to sleep with the next door neighbor. After she comes to her senses he stalks her and looks like it could be a good suspense movie as well.
The Loft, Project Almanac, Alien: Outpost, Coming Home
Reason: Karl Urban and James Marsden start in a suspense thriller. A group of guys share a loft and when they return to it they find a dead women inside. But who did it and why???
