Movies TO See: January 2013 Edition

Apparently I did not do a December Edition for last year, sorry.  Im pretty sure I did though so that just makes me annoyed that there is nothing there. 


Gangster Squad (Jan 11/13)

I probably wont watch this until its out on DVD, but it looks like it would be a good movie.  It has a great cast.  Sean Penn looks like a great gangster.  I enjoy Emma Stone, and Ryan Gosling is a win no matter what you have to watch.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (January 25/13)

The preview for this movie is finally out.  I love the darkness of the film and their portrayal of some of the witches looks pretty cool.  Unfortunately, from the preview you can tell they try to add comedy to the film when they shouldn’t.  I’m hoping this doesn’t ruin the film, as I am leaving it on the films TO see for concept and hope.

Beautiful Creatures (Feb 1/13)

I have been wanting to check out this series for awhile now, it looks like I am going to have to get on that.  I’m sure whether or not I like the books will have an effect on my desire to see the film.  I have a feeling I will enjoy them.

Warm Bodies (Feb 1/13)

The concept of this movie makes me laugh.  There is no preview for it yet so I cannot judge it completely.  It is about a zombie who becomes friends with the girlfriend of one of his victims.  Not many people go the zombie route as they are usually portrayed as speechless drones and can only go the killing route.

Identity Thief (Feb 8/13)

Starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, McCarthy’s character steals Bateman’s identity.  This actually looks pretty funny.  It wouldn’t be high on my list to rush to the theatres, but I would like to see this one.

Side Effects (Feb 8/13)

An intriguing preview with a great cast.  I would definitely consider seeing this!

Safe Haven (Feb 14/13)

From the Author of the Notebook and Dear John.  Looks like a good movie, and Josh Duhamel isn’t hard on the eyes.

Escape from Planet Earth (Feb 14/13)

Looks like a pretty cute movie.

Snitch (Feb 22/13)

I think if I were to be watching any action movies, I would consider this one.

Stoker (March 1/13)

A strange movie that I probably wouldn’t usually watch, but it stars Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska.  It’s not something I would see in theatres though.

Oz: The Great and Powerful (March 8/13)

A Disney film about the Wizard of Oz starring James Franco as the wizard!? I’m

definitely interested in seeing this!

Admission (March 8/13)

I first reaction to seeing Tina Fey and Paul Rudd as the cast is not very positive.  They have joined the ranks of those actors and actresses who are only in one type of movie.  However….I dont think this is that type of movie.  I would watch this movie, but I would wait until it was out of theatres.

Carrie (March 15/13)

A remake of the classic.  To be honest I have never seen the original Carrie movie.  I know the gist of it though.  This gives me times to watch the original and debate if its worth seeing the remake.

The Host (March 29/13)

Based on the best selling novel by Stephanie Meyer.  I really liked this book and I look forward to this movie.  I didn’t realize it was so close.  You would think they would have more advertising done by now.

G.I. Joe Retaliation (March 29/13)

I suppose I will have to see the first movie.  I am still annoyed that they moved this movie release date a year all to make it 3D, then list it as not 3D.  But a movie with Channing Tatum is a good enough reason to see it…right?

The Great Gatsby (May 10/13)

This movie was supposed to be released in December, but for some reason the release was moved.  I have not read the book but I am interested in seeing this movie.

Star Trek Into Darkness (May 17/13)

I guess I will have to get on watching the first one.  However, if I’m not impressed by it then this one will probably come off the list.  I heard it was a pretty popular movie though so I’m sure many of you will be interested in this one.

Monsters Inc. 2 : Monsters University (June 21/13)

I was tricked by this movie a bit.  I thought that they had bumped the movie up, but it turns out they are just bringing the 1st film to theatres in 3D Dec 19/12.  Because of this however, I did find a preview for the actual Monsters Inc 2.  It is called Monsters University, where monsters go to learn to scare.  This is a prequel to the original and before Mike and Sully are best buds.  I’m hoping it doesn’t turn into one of those kids movies where it tries to be funny but isn’t.  That would hurt all too much.

The Fast & Furious 6 (May 26/13)

We have come this far, we can’t stop now!

Man of Steel (June 14/13)

A new interpretation of Super Man’s back story.  I’m usually not on jumping at these movies and take my time to see them, but I know many of you are eager for them.

The Wolverine July 26/13)

I actually really enjoyed all the X-men movies. I haven’t really watched the Wolverine (or Wolverine’s) so I should probably do that first.

Elysium (August 9/13)

The earth has gone to crap, and the rich are living on a luxury space ship.  I may consider seeing this movie, but we’ll see if its in theatres or not.

City of Bones (August 23/13)

The first book in the Immortal Instruments series.  I loved these books and I can’t wait for the movies.

Catching Fire (Nov 22/13)

The sequel to the Hunger Games.  I look forward to how this one turns out.



To be honest I don’t really remember too much about this movie.  Just Arnold and silver armour.  I know many of you would be interested in this one, even though remakes kind of ruin things sometimes.

The Hobbit: Part 2 (July 14/14)

I’m not sure exactly why they had to move this movie a year and a half away from part 1.  It’s bad enough they turned it into 3 parts.

 Avatar 2



I thought I would add a couple projects that are being talked about, and even some have begun casting and filming.

Witch & Wizard is a new book series that I have begun reading.  I learnt that they plan on making it into a movie.  Once I get more info about the film, I will let you know!

The Night Circus is an amazing book by Erin Morgenstern.  The rights to this book were bought almost instantly and I hungrily await for this film!

Fifty shades of Grey has taken the world by storm, and now I demand a steamy movie.

The Host by Stephanie Meyer will also be a film in 2013!
