oof. that list makes me want to cry.

The one I want to see most would be Interstellar. Cant pass up that concept, that cast, with Nolan at the helm. 2nd would be Noah, but the march release makes me a tad nervous.

if I had to pick a couple of the sequels/remakes it would probably be Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and X-Men.

You couldn't pay me to watch Transformers or Robocop.

Missed Gone Girl the first time. Definitely will see that, probably in the theater. There and Back Again is 50/50. Little to no chance I ever see any of the others.
Ahhh, that's the Fincher movie. I'm on that one for sure.
Why the hell did Fincher cast Tyler Perry in this?! Might be the first Fincher movie I never see unless I repeal my Perry boycott.
Would it help to know that the chick from the Blurred Lines video is in it?
No, because Ive never seen the Blurred Lines video.
You're not internetting correctly.
Unless that music video includes this chick getting banged and it ends with her getting some oikos on her face, Im pretty sure Im internetting correctly when it comes to women.

Maybe someday you'll learn.

 
This one will start filming next month and I hope it makes it to cinema because I find the title most intriguing. :lol:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3464902/

The Lobster

Director Yorgos Lanthimos will make his English-language debut with this unconventional love story set in a dystopian near future where single people are arrested and transferred to the Hotel. There, they are obligated to find a mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into the woods. But what happens when a desperate man escapes from the Hotel, flees to the woods where the Loners live, and then falls in love?

Looks interesting and I'm going to check out his movie Dogtooth.

 
Grand Budapest Hotel over any of those listed.

Not much into religious epics, but Noah and Exodus both have strong directors and casts, so I'm in for those.
Love the old religious epics!Didn't know those are coming out.
Yeah. Noah is directed/written by Aronofsky with Russell Crowe as Noah. Exodus is directed by Ridley Scott with Christian Bale as Moses. Supporting cast looks great in both movies too.
Nice!Add them to the list!

Now I'm excited.
Big fan of Aronofsky's work. I'm expecting this film to great.

I know everyone is eagerly awaiting another Adam Sandler movie. The guy has no here to go but up.

The Cobbler

An indie film from "The Station Agent" writer-director Tom McCarthy. Sandler plays a lonely New York shoe repairman who can magically step into the figurative shoes of the people whose literal shoes he's fixing--and his neighboring shop owner is a barber played by Steve Buscem.
Beg to differ. He can also stay down...

Sounds like a Sandler drama, in which case Id say it has a likely chance of being decent as Spanglish, Punch Drunk Love, and Reign Over Me were all solid dramas.

:goodposting:

my first reaction to seeing a Godzilla remake was :rolleyes: but after seeing a couple trailers now.. IN! :excited:
Exactly.

That they're making a remake isn't all that exciting. But I think Pacific Rim proved that you can make a fun movie with giant monsters.

 
Noah is a terrible, awful, terrible, searingly bad, terrible, turrible, just tremendously horrendous piece of cinematic crap dropped on the public. I feel violated having seen it. :hot:

 
Saw Grand Budapest by Wes Anderson today.

"Delicious Nonsense" is the best way to describe it. Fun movie, some good chuckles, like his use of colors and music.

Why?Thought it had potential.
Had heard good things. The ark scenes were filmed at the arboretum where my wife and had our wedding and where I worked in high school and college. Back then we held a large summer music festival there and from the looks of it the ark is where we used to have our parking fields.

Is this because of your religious views or because the movie really sucked?

 
Of those listed, Hunger Games. It's not close and I'm not ashamed. They are good flicks.

I have no idea who's starring in 90% of those other movies, but I'm reasonably certain they aren't more talented than Jennifer Lawrence.

Not generally interested in super hero movies. No interest in Bible movies, LOTR stuff, racing stuff, Godzilla, or a Robocop remake.

The Budapest Hotel things seems worth a watch.

I hated that one and expect to hate this one. It looks like the same movie minus giant robots.
I hope Bryan Cranston doesn't end up a wimpier version of Matthew Broderick.

This is one of the best filmmakers of the last 30 years. What do you think?

While that is certainly debatable, MadCow's venom toward the movie makes me wonder if it's somehow Roger Corman bad. And if it is just that the movie deviates from one's beliefs, so what? It's supposed to be an entertaining movie, not a direct retelling of the bible account.

Unpossible.

Yes, it did stray very far from the Biblical story, to the point you wonder why they even used a Biblical story as the canvas, but it was bad. The movie ended, silence, and from the back a girl yelled, "Well, that sucked." And an uproar of agreement. :shrug:

What's interesting is that on rotten tomatoes, it's doing very well with the critics (76%), but is only at 50% from the audience. These numbers are typically reversed. So it seems that a lot of other movie-goers feel as you do.

I would guess those #s are typical for movies/directors that are more on the artsy side. aronofsky, lynch, malick, etc. I bet would score with critics but not with audiences.

I agree with you, although it wouldnt shock me if this one is closer to The Fountain than The Wrestler.

All three of those sucked
