My Most Anticipated Movies For the Rest of 2014
Who says all the good movies come out during the summer? You may remember that I posted earlier this year my most anticipated movies of the Spring/Summer and most of those movies were a flop. So here's a list of movies that I'm looking forward to for the rest of 2014.
What If (August 9th, 2014)
Just like the trailer poster states, What If reminds me a lot of one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time 500 Days of Summer. Although not a huge fan of Daniel Radcliffe I think this might be one of those feel good rom-coms.
If I Stay (August 22, 2014)
I'm pretty sure I won't see this in theaters. I can almost bet money I won't. But I love the concept of this movie. I hear the book wasn't great though. The idea though of being outside of your own body and making a life decision seems deep. I've just got a bad feeling this won't be nearly as deep as the trailer makes it out to be.
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (September 12, 2014)
Wow does this movie look incredible. It has two amazing actors (Jessica Chastain & James MacAvoy) and a plot that seems unique and interesting. It seems like the style might make this more then your average love story. Super interested to see how this movie turns out.
Skeleton Twins (September 12, 2014)
I mentioned in one of my previous movie reviews that I'm growing tired of the big blockbuster movies. They just all feel to similar. That's why I love movies with plots like Skeleton Twins. It just feels different. It doesn't feel like a movie I've seen a 100 times and it has a great cast to boot.
This is Where I Leave You (September 19, 2014)
Not only is the cast of This is Where I Leave You excellent but the premise seems great. I'm very excited to see if this movie holds the promise of the trailer.
A Walk Among the Tombstones (September 19, 2014)
Remember how I said I was tired of the big blockbusters. One thing I'm not tired of is Liam Neeson movies. If they made a Taken 3, I'd probably go see it. This movie looks intense and I cannot wait to see it.
The Equalizer (September 26, 2014)
My reaction right after seeing this trailer was, its like Denzel is Batman. Count me in. I love Denzel movies and this looks like one of his better ones in recent years. Hopefully its got enough meat on the bones to be a great movie.
Men, Women, and Children (October 3, 2014)
From the director of Juno & Up in the Air (two amazing movies) comes Men, Women, and Children. A movie that looks a little dark and depressive but looks like it could be quite the moving experience.
Gone Girl (October 3, 2014)
Both Jenn and I read Gone Girl and loved it. Its one of those rare thrillers that left you wondering what happened until the very last couple of pages. The movie starring Ben Affleck looks just as good and is definitely one we both can't wait to see.
The Judge (October 10, 2014)
Part of me is getting a little tired of Robert Downing Jr. but The Judge looks like a fantastic movie. Combine an interesting plot with a great cast and this might be a really good movie.
Dracula Untold (October 17, 2014)
I wouldn't consider myself a huge Dracula fan but something about movies where they tell the villains side of the story is always intriguing.
Laggies (October 24, 2014)
I'm always ready for a coming of age story. I even appreciate it when the character is already supposed to have found themselves but haven't yet. We all are on different paths and its always fun to watch these types of movies. Looks like a good romantic comedy.
St. Vincent (October 24, 2014)
I've never been a huge Bill Murray fan but something about St. Vincent tells me its going to be quite the movie. There seems to be a great dynamic between the young boy and Bill Murray and having the kids mom be Melissa McCarthy should be great.
Interstellar (November 7, 2014)
Interstellar might be my most anticipated movie for the rest of the year. It sure has the potential with Christopher Nolan taking the helm (of Dark Knight and Inception fame) I think this has the potential to be an absolutely incredible movie.
Dumb and Dumber To (November 14, 2014)
I really really really hope this is a good movie. I can remember as a kid watching Dumb and Dumber with Chris over and over and over again. I pretty much know every line of the original movie. I sure hope this is a good movie. I'm really excited to go see it.
Fury (November 14, 2014)
I'm not the biggest fan of war movies but something about Fury really called to me. I went back and forth whether or not I'd add it to my list but I really think this might be a surprise hit for the holidays.
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (November 21, 2014)
I'm always so conflicted on The Hunger Games. I read all the books and they were good not great. I think book three was a nice departure from the first two and could be an interesting movie.
Exodus God's and Kings (December 12, 2014)
This is another movie I hope is good. With Christian Bale playing Moses I really have high hopes for this movie. I grew up watching The Ten Commandments every year and think this might be a nice update to that movie. Oh and Aaron Paul is in the movie so that will be great.
Unbroken (December 25, 2014)
Unbroken is an incredible true story. I'm not sure if releasing the movie on Christmas was the right move (its a tough story) but I do think this is going to be quite the movie.
