Movies TO See: May 2013 Edition

 

The Iceman (May 3/13)

I wouldn’t see this movie because it’s not really my thing but the idea is pretty interesting.  It is based on the true story about Richard Kuklinksi, a contract killer for the mob who killed over 100 men.

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.

Epic (May 12/13)

I love imaginative cartoon movies with beautiful scenery.  A fun good vs evil movie.  There may be a couple lame laughs, but looks like fun.

Star Trek Into Darkness (May 15/13)

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.

The Fast & Furious 6 (May 24/13)

We have come this far, we can’t stop now!  They have definitely come a long way since the first Fast and Furious. They amped up the action and effects in this film.

The Hangover III (May 24/13)

This ones for you.  Watching the preview for this movie made me realize I don’t even know if I saw the second one, or cared about the first one.  Where’s the other guy?  Shows how much I know.

We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks (May 24/13)

I had to get Jamie to educate me on this topic.  It sounds like a pretty interesting documentary.  Nothing I would watch in a theatre though.

After Earth (June 7/13)

A futuristic movie starring Will Smith and his son Jaden.  Looks like a pretty cool movie, I’d check it out…after theatres probably.

Now You See Me (June 7/13)

Magician robbers with a decent cast, i’m in.

The Internship (June 7/13)

Ugh.  I dont want to put this here.  I think I would like everything except the main characters.  Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson aren’t doing it for me.  They are perfect for their roles as washed up old guys though.  Interesting that there is a Google themed move and an Apple themed movie, all we need is Microsofts story now. I’m not gonna see this in theatres, but probably after.

The Purge (June 7/13)

Interesting concept.  Crime is down, unemployment is at 1%, America is doing good.  For one night (12 hours) of the year EVERYTHING is legal, including murder.  Plus there are killers in creepy masks.

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 Bling Ring (June 14/13)

Based on the true events of the group who stole over 3 million in stuff from celebs like Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson.  I wouldn’t see this in theatres, but I would consider it after.

World War Z (June 21/13)

I am so torn by this movie.  I love zombie type movies and with Brad Pitt in the movie you know they put lots of money behind it to have an A lister up front.  What I am not convinced on are these reanimated corpses that are more like the robots from I, Robot when they go bad.  Super human strength, no pain just full on attack mode.

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.

Byzantium (June 28/13)

Love me some vampire movies.  There are a couple of graphics on the preview that are interesting.  I always like to see how people portray vampires.

White House Down (June 28/13)

Looks like a pretty cool movie.  Did I mention Channing Tatum is in it? : )

The Lone Ranger (July 3/13)

A Disney movie with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter.  I’m not big on cowboys and indians but what the heck!

Turbo (July 19/13)

I dunno if I would make it to theatres to see this, but I love snails and it looks like a cute movie.

R.I.P.D (July 19/13)

Not completely sold on the idea, but I am sold on Ryan Reynolds.  Gonna wait for a proper preview.

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.

300: Rise of an Empire (August 2/13)

If it’s anything like the first 300 I’m down ; )

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.

Planes (August 9/13)

From the makers of Cars we have Planes!

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters (August 16/13)

I actually didn’t mind the first Percy Jackson movie, I wouldn’t mind checking this one out.

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.

Getaway (August 30/13)

I want to see an actual preview for this movie before I completely decide.  Could be good, could be bad.  It kind of reminds me of the movie Cellular.

I, Frankenstein (Sept 13/13)

Sounds interesting, I wouldn’t mind a preview to solidify my interest though.

The Prisoners (Sept 20/13)

Starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.  I’m gonna give this one a chance, but I really need to see a preview to make a final decision.

Malavita (Sept 20/13)

Starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in a mofia comedy, I’ll take the bait.

Gravity (October 4/13)

I’m gonna give this a shot and wait until the preview.  The preview would have to make this look exciting in order to see it.  The cast looks good, I’m intrigued to see Sandra Bullock in a more “serious” role.  The idea of two people being lost in space makes me wonder how much story will be there.

Oldboy (October 11/13)

A man kidnapped and held captive for 20 years then released only to begin a hunt to find his captor and his motives.  I’d have to see a preview for this one to make a for sure decision.

The Seventh Son (October 18/13)

A supernatural movie with Julianne Moore as a dark witch.  I may be interested in this!

About Time (Nov 1/13)

A romantic comedy featuring Rachel McAdams, Yes please!

Ender’s Game (Nov 1/13)

I never read the books, but it does sound very familiar.  I would be interested to see a trailer first.

Catching Fire (Nov 22/13)

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

Frozen (November 27/13)

An animated film with a winter wonderland full of magic.  I doubt I would see this in theatres, but could be a good movie to watch on Netflix.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (December 13/13)

The Hobbit…Part 2 of 3…

The Monuments Men (December 18/13)

Starring George Clooney and Daniel Craig.  The film is based on a true story about art historians and museum currators during WWII.  Who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt?

Saving Mr. Banks (December 20/13)

A story about Walt Disney!  His daughters beg for their favourite story to become a film (Mary Poppins) and Walt’s struggle to make it happen.  Would LOVE to see this!

2014

RoboCop

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.

Maleficent (July 2/14)

Sleeping Beauty from the side of Maleficent played by Angelina Jolie!!

Jupiter Ascending (July 25/14)

This sounds like such a magical anime type story and it stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis!

 Avatar 2

Mockingjay Part 1 (Nov 21/14)

The first part of the end of Hunger Games

2015

Finding Dory (Nov 25/15)

Thats right! Finding Nemo Part 2! This time it is Finding Dory.  Newly announced, but thankfully Ellen will be voicing Dory in the new film.  Oh Boy thats a long time away.

Mockingjay Part 2 

The finale to the Hunger Games

Pirates of the Caribbean 5

A COUPLE PROJECTS SOON TO 

 COME THAT I AM VERY EXCITED FOR!

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.
