Upcoming movies to see maybe 2014

For off-topic and non-football related topics such as life, TV, movies, women, video games, etc. If you want to talk other sports, such as MLB, NBA, soccer, etc. this is also the right place.

For whatever reason (maybe because I'm working more), I tend not to see nearly as many movies during the fall/winter as I do in the spring/summer. I think also waiting til January to see all the Oscar picks probably contributes to my general malaise about getting to the theater.

But I'm sure there are a few movies that I'll wind up seeing:

The Equalizer
Hunger Games
Interstellar
The Hobbit 3

Comedies I tend to wait for the reviews to come out before making the firm decision whether to go or wait for Netflix/Redbox. Those would be:

The Interview
Dumb & Dumber 2
Horrible Bosses 2
Hot Tub Time Machine 2


I'm boycotting Exodus though. That's 1 movie I won't be seeing.

Here is my list I want to see. Unfortunately I won't see most of these till May2015 since I'll be working on a cruiseship but it will be interesting to see how many do well. I tend to look at who the actors/actresses are and what time of yr the film comes out plus reviews. Movies cost to much to go to see a bad one thus I'll wait for many to come out on DVD. I made an exception for the Fury since Brad Pitt and Labeof usually are in good movies despite it coming out in October. Anything Denzel is in usually does good. Interstellar with Mcconaughy probably is going to be good. Hunger Games a good bet to do well. Unbroken with Jolie directing and it looks like an interesting story. The Interview could be a crazy good movie comes out on Christmas and Selma could be a serious movie. Academy awards seem to go to true story movies so Selma could be the one this year.

Movies like the Hobbit 3 , Dumb and Dumber 2 not on the list but I'm not sure about. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 if it's like the first one will bomb. I thought the first one was one of the stupidest movies I've seen.Pretty raunchy and just dumb. My sister and brother in law were with me and they don't go to the movies often but I talked them into seeing this movie. Pretty embarrassed I picked this movie to see with them.

The Equalizer - Denzel
Fury - Pitt, Labeof
Interstellar
The Hunger Games
Unbroken, Angelina Jolie
The Interview
Selma -Martin Luther King

Hot Tub Time Machine 2


So if you go into this movie expecting it to be as bad as the title suggests, you'll have a good time. I'm not saying it's good, mind you.

Why?

All these "2" movies....has there been a decent one since the Godfather?

There are plenty of decent sequels. If you only mean ones that have "2" in the title, then I present:

X-Men 2
Spider-Man 2
Terminator 2
Toy Story 2
Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan
Lethal Weapon 2:

As for why I'm boycotting Exodus, this article gives a brief overview of the "controversy": http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact ... t-20140720

For me personally, I'm a big fan of Ridley Scott. Nearly all of his movies I like on some level. And generally, he does a pretty good job with his casting. You take movies like Body of Lies and Kingdom of Heaven, which were well-populated with Arabs, Middle Easterners and other Muslims. Sure, Body of Lies had English actor Mark Strong playing a Jordanian, but Mark Strong was soooo great in that movie, that I'll let it slide.

I don't really have an issue with Christian Bale's casting. It's a simple fact that besides Denzel and Will Smith, every star of a Hollywood movie is going to be some white guy. I've learned to accept this. And if that isn't the case (as in 12 Years A Slave), we have to make sure we put some white stars (i.e. Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, etc.) in the movie, so we can show white audiences at least in the trailer that they have nothing to fear.

But the Pharaoh? I don't really care whether he's black. All those great Arab actors you've worked with in the past, Mr. Scott and you can't even cast a brown person?

It'll probably be a good movie, but sometimes you have to stand for something. I refused to watch any of the Spider-Man reboots and should've had made that same stand against Transformers 4. Now that I didn't, Exodus will bear the brunt of my soapbox.

Is it called Draft Day with Kevin C. ?

I ordered it on direct Tv and I thought it was great!!

Do some of these kids or fathers really call the Gm on draft day to tell them don't believe what the paper said, or like a dad like our #1 pick calling his old team to pick his son, if its a low pick??

Wow this really had the GM taking some s*** from some players for who he was drafting, and the Gm telling them to never cry to him f**** again, call their agent with their s***, he'll trade them only if its best for the team.......And the owner telling the coach he needs a big wow from the draft, he says the public will pay for wow.

I watched it twice and only had it two days.

I saw Guardian of the Galaxies today.Worth seeing at the movies. Dub and Dumber2 trailer looked good but then again sometimes they put all the good stuff in the trailer and you go see the movie and it's bad.

That's always the fear with comedies. All the good parts are in the trailer.

Went to see the new movie starring Liam Neeson A Walk Among The Tombstones today. Not much action an ok movie. I would suggest to rent it. Kind of disappointed with the movie. I guess Denzel's movie coming out next week hopefully will be good.

You have to be wary of Liam Neeson movies nowadays. Because of the success of the Taken series, they will market most as action-packed, but many of them are not. You have movies like The Grey and Non-Stop which are basically marketed as "Taken With Wolves" and "Taken on a Plane" and while both did feature their fair share of action, neither had the sort of audience acclaim that the original Taken had, IMO due to misplaced expectations.

I'm still waiting on the Liam Neeson vs. Denzel Washington movie. Hollywood needs to make that happen!

I saw the Equalizer yesterday. Thumbs up good movie. Denzel you know he is going to kick the bad guys asses but even knowing that made it interesting what he was going to do with the bad guys. Check it out when you get some time.

Saw Gone Girl Friday night. I guess you'd say it was Ok in a preposterous mystery sort of way. Noted that two war movies are to be released on Xmas Day--Fury with B Pitt and American Sniper, a C Eastwood directed thing. What's so funny about peace, love and understanding? :shock:
