Movies TO See: March 2018 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

Death Wish (Mar 2)

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen anything with Bruce Willis.  After the death of his family, Brucie takes things into his own hands and starts his own vigilante crime fighting, just without the mask.

Red Sparrow (Mar 2)

Okay, I need to see this movie.  Jennifer Lawrence looks stone cold and kickass.

A Wrinkle In Time (Mar 9)

I have been meaning to read the book for so long now, it doesn’t look like I will have time to read it before the movie but this looks sooooo good.

The Strangers: Prey At Night (Mar 9)

A continuation of The Strangers film just with new characters and a dash of The Purge.  You can’t expect cinematic genius with these types of movies but fun for a night in.

The Death of Stalin (Mar 9)

What strange little film is this?  A political comedy.  I likely won’t ever see it though.

Tomb Raider (Mar 16)

Alicia Vikander is the new Angelina Jolie and the Tomb Raider series is set for a revamp. Looks pretty cool.

Love, Simon (Mar 16)

Super cute Nick Robinson plays Simon, a high school kid in the closet and trying to get by.

Journey’s End (Mar 16)

Not a war movie fan, but it’s hard not to consider this film and it’s cast.

Pacific Rim: Uprising (Mar 23)

I never saw the other Pacific Rim movie, but perhaps I should be looking into it after watching this preview.  The trailer speaks to the gamer in me.  Hopping into a suit and powering up into a giant robot with immense power sounds pretty cool to me.

Midnight Sun (Mar 23)

If Mandy Moore in A Walk To Remember was a sick vampire.  Okay so maybe Bella Thorne isn’t a vampire but she does have a sensitivity to the sun disease and the movie is pathetically cheesy which makes it all the more perfect.  Am I the only one who noticed these little connections?  Bella…. Sun sensitivity…..Midnight Sun?  Triple whammy right there.

Ready Player One (Mar 29)

Deep dive gaming and virtual reality is a dream that gamers all have.  There are elements of the movie that are super cool, but others I’m not entirely sure about.  I would be interested in seeing it but I have some doubts.

Finding Your Feet (Mar 30)

This is one of those cheesy older woman finding herself after divorce stories that seem to be everywhere lately.  If the actresses weren’t British this film would be nothing, but the fact that they are makes it almost worth seeing.


Movies To See: February 2018 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

Winchester (Feb 2)

A thriller horror based on the strangely true Winchester mansion.

The Cloverfield Paradox (Feb 4)

The whole Cloverfield universal is strange to me having only seen one film and not sure what is really going on.  Apparently, this film was so bad that rather than releasing to theatres it was sold to Netflix.  Huzzah for us.

Fifty Shades Freed (Feb 9)

It’s finally here and we are no longer subject to the phase of Part One Part Two finales!

Black Panther (Feb 16)

I keep saying I need to get on top of watching the Marvel movies and this is just another to add to the list.  Black Panther looks pretty kick ass.

Early Man (Feb 16)

From the creators of Wallace and Gromet, I love claymation but I really don’t see myself watching this in theatres (and to be honest probably not at all), but it looks cute.

Annihilation (Feb 23)

I have never actually heard of this trilogy and I’m not really sure what is going on.  I have my doubts that it will be any good but I’d be willing to give it a shot.

Game Night (Feb 23)

If it didn’t star Rachel McAdams I would be on the fence about this one, but she has me signed on and ready to play.

Movies TO See: January 2018 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

Insidious: The Last Key (Jan 5)

It says the “Last” key making us think this is possibly the last movie but I have my doubts.  I actually liked the Insidious movies so you can’t just stop now.

Paddington 2 (Jan 12)

I have not seen the first and to be honest I don’t know much of anything about Paddington bear but this preview makes me think I may attempt watching both of these.

The Commuter (Jan 12)

Starring Liam Neeson and Vera Farmiga comes an intense mystery thriller.  Vera sold me on wanting to see this one.

Proud Mary (Jan 12)

I must say I was not expecting that.  I’m sure we’ll find out how the odd title fits in, but I love me some badass agent movies with Proud Mary boasting a strong black female lead.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower (Jan 18)

While I haven’t seen all the Japanese anime films that have come to theatres I do enjoy how imaginative they are.

Den of Thieves (Jan 19)

Not normally my type of film, but raise the stakes high enough and it might just become interesting.  Also interesting is that the film stars 50 Cent noted as Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.  This reminds me of The Rock, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Dwayne Johnson.  Could 50 Cent be our future children’s movie dad?

Forever My Girl (Jan 19)

A country chick flick romantic comedy? I’m down.

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure (Jan 26)

I haven’t seen the second one but I did enjoy the first.  Since this is considered the epic finale to the saga I guess now wouldn’t be a bad time to get caught up.


Movies TO See: November 2017 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

A Bad Moms Christmas (Nov 1)

While most sequels can never compare to the original, I feel like this one will be much better than the first.  We’ve set the scene, we know the drill, now we can just focus on the truths and realities, the laughter and of course, Christmas!

Thor: Ragnarok (Nov 3)

I must admit, I’m a little disappointed in myself and my Marvel/DC viewings.  They do interest me but I am very far behind and not nearly as knowledgable as I should be.

My Friend Dahmer (Nov 3)

Perhaps a different approach to horror movies.  More psychologically disturbing than visually gruesome. We all know the disturbing details behind Jeffrey Dahmer’s murders, My Friend Dahmer tries to give a glimpse into Dahmer as he was in his youth.

Murder On The Orient Express (Nov 10)

From the best selling novel by Agatha Christie comes Clue on a train! But really, the film is pretty star studded and will be a good time.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Nov 10)

I’m kind of on the fence about this one, but something is telling me to give it a shot.  It won’t be the most profound thing you’ve seen, but in comparison to some of your other options for this date its chances are looking up.

Mayhem (Nov 10)

As disturbing as it is to put this on the TO see list, it’s almost like a zombies fight back film.

Justice League (Nov 17)

Once again disappointed in myself for how far behind I am on these.

Wonder (Nov 17)

A feel good film guaranteed to tug at your heart strings and bring you laughter and tears.

The Star (Nov 17)

Oi…. I’m partially cringing putting this on the TO see list.  It’s the story of Christmas told from the perspective of the animals.  There is just something about dancing animated animals that makes everyone else laugh and makes me groan.

Roman J. Israel, Esq (Nov 17)

I don’t care for the violent gang criminal movies, but you can tell this one would be a good one, you know, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Mudbound (Nov 17)

War movies and Sundance award winning films, two types of films that normally rank pretty low on my lists TO see.  While you must prepare yourself for two hours that may seem like longer, Mudbound is sure to hit you hard with emotions and get you riled up.

Coco (Nov 22)

From Disney and Pixar ❤ comes the story of the day of the dead.  The Mexican tradition where the dead come to visit the land of the living comes to animation-life.  When Miguel is magically transported to the land of the dead, he must find his way back with the help of his deceased family.  Along the way, old secrets are uncovered and the truth of his past is revealed.

The Man Who Invented Christmas (Nov 22)

Everyone loves A Christmas Carol, now experience the true story of how Charles Dickens wrote the beloved tale.  This one looks amazing.

The Darkest Hour (Nov 22)

I absolutely LOVED The Crown on Netflix and this takes me right back to that amazing show and I would very much be interested in seeing this one.


Movies To See: September 2017 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

Tulip Fever (Sept 1)

I’ll believe it when I see it.  I’ve wanted to see this one for so long and it just keeps pushing the release date back and back and back.

IT (Sept 8)

The highly anticipated remake of Stephen Kings IT.  I imagine the movie would have been more terrifying as a child, but watching it as an adult (all 10 hours of it) was a bit of a challenge.  I think this one will be much better.

The Limehouse Golem (Sept 8)

While I feel like the story has been done a few times I do enjoy me some Bill Nighy and seeing Olivia Cooke is a friendly sight.  I would give it a shot though I have my doubts it will be anything great.

Rememory (Sept 8)

I’m more intrigued by the memory device and the futuristic angle of the film and while it may be interesting it won’t be a great film.  Still may be worth it for a lazy day.

Mother! (Sept 15)

The trailer is rather vague and the description is no more enticing.  It’s the actors and actresses in the film that give this one any weight on the TO SEE list.

American Assassin (Sept 15)

Looks like the right mix of action, adventure and story as an average guy trains and becomes a CIA black ops after his girlfriend is killed by terrorists.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Sept 22)

Loved the first one, can’t wait for the second.

Victoria & Abdul (Sept 22)

The true story of Queen Victoria and her unexpected friendship with a servant from India.  Love me some British history with some Judi Dench.

Loving Vincent (Sept 22)

While I may never see this, you have to give them credit for trying something new in the worlds first feature-length painted animation.

Flatliners (Sept 29)

Another movie this month with a concept interesting enough to make it worth watching even though the movie won’t be that great.  A group of medical students set up an experiment to find out what happens after we die.  Successfully stopping their heart and bringing themselves back the group each experience a euphoric experience and come back with talents they never had before.  Soon they become addicted and stay dead longer each time and gaining more abilities, but all good things must come to an end.

Movies TO See: August 2017 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 

The Dark Tower (Aug 4/17) 

I haven’t read the book by Stephen King but this looks like it might live up to the hype.

 Detroit (Aug 4/17)

 Based on the true events that occurred during the civil unrest in 1967.

Kidnap (Aug 4/17) 

The intense movie about a mom (Halle Berry) who witnesses her sons kidnapping and her frantic attempts to try and catch the people who took him.

Wind River (Aug 4/17)

A rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) teams up with a local game tracker (Jeremy Renner) to investigate the death of a local girl on a remote Native American Reservation.  Looks like an interesting mystery thriller but I’ll admit I will probably never get to it.

Annabelle: Creation (Aug 11/17)

I never saw the first Annabelle movie but perhaps now may be the type.  Though most horror movies never turn out good anyway, it is always fun to keep the potentials on the radar.

The Glass Castle (Aug 11/17) 

I’m a little on the fence with this one.  Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, the book is usually better but I must admit I welcome movies on movies like these that I know I will never get to.

In This Corner of the World (Aug 11/17)

My new interest in watching anime probably plays a role in this but the few animated Asian films that come to theatres are usually both beautiful and have a great storyline.

The Only Living Boy in New York (Aug 11/17) 

The actors and actresses in the movie really make it.  As for the story itself it is okay.  I probably will never see this movie but it has peeked my interest.

Logan Lucky (Aug 18/17) 

I don’t know what is going on with me this month.  I think it is Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig that are distracting me, even though I know how stupid this looks.

 The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Aug 18/17)

Okay, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson look hilarious in this action packed movie.

Shot Caller (Aug 18/17) 

Yet another movie that is normally nowhere near my interests or TO SEE list, yet here we are.

Patti Cake$ (Aug 18/17)

 Honey Boo Boo all grown up in this Eminem 8 Mile remake.

Tulip Fever (Aug 25/17)

I have been wanting to see this movie for so long.  I have lost track of the amount of times the release date has been pushed.  Give me my Christoph Waltz!

Birth of the Dragon (Aug 25/17)

Taking inspiration from Bruce Lee movies comes the story of his life before he became a movie star and a modern take on the classic films.

Movies To See: July 2017 Edition

A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title. 
I really liked the first remake of Planet of the Apes.  I never saw the originals and probably won’t.  They don’t have the same effect watching now as they did back then.  I did not see the last Planet of the Apes movie but I would be willing to catch up so I can see this one.
I’m a bit torn on this one.  I wouldn’t mind seeing it though I think there will be too many lulls in the movie and in the end not very impressed.
I’m not a war movie fan and I won’t be seeing this one, but you can’t avoid the fact that it was directed by Christopher Nolan and would be a great movie should you like this sort.
A must see for the visuals alone but it looks like it will also have a great story though the cast has me wavering.
Get ready for what is sure to be the next bridesmaids.
I love these kinds of spy/agent movies.  Starring James McAvoy (plus) and Charlize Theron as a sexy killer (plus plus).
I can’t believe I would actually say that you should see a movie about Emojis.  There will be some guaranteed laughs which should hopefully make it worth it, but the novelty comes from the fact that we love emojis.
