[tps_title]Cat Gioino’s Top Ten Most Anticipated of 2015[/tps_title]
- Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens
If you thought this wasn’t going to be first, you’re kidding yourself.
If you thought this wasn’t going to be first, you were right. I mean, Star Wars tops James Bond… (let’s forget the ’90s.)
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
Are you seeing a pattern here? I sure am… lazy Hollywood making sequels and spin-offs. Who do they think they are? Pleasing us like we’re supposed to anticipate the… wait
- Fifty Shades of Grey
Not that I read the book (but a cool teacher of mine did), but it’s not like you’re supposed to forget all the hubbub it caused in the first place.
This just screams Johnny Depp in costume just as much as it did in Ed Wood – meaning pretty little. But, the premise of an art piece stolen by the Nazis and searched for just sounds like it would have been made already.
Wow, this sounds new and original. Literally, in the non-sarcastic way, it actually is new and original.
It’s like Cabin in the Woods meets Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Only this time, it’s actually all of your childhood nightmares, plus the excitement you get from realizing there is a Goosebumps corny movie to go along with the book you read.
Because you can take all of the other classic English literature movies (shall we forget that weird CGI Angelina Jolie in Beowulf?) and put them aside since it’s everyone’s favorite Shakespeare play (nope, I don’t care if you think Richard III is better, because even Kevin Spacey doesn’t make me love Macbeth any less). And it has Michael Fassbender.
It’s like backwards Memento. But instead of trying to find someone to kill, it’s someone trying to pretend he didn’t. (Return to note 3 for thoughts on this writing.)
- Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller
The bad news – it has no name. The good news – this lack of a name just adds to the movie’s plot. I mean, I saw them filming around my town the other day (that’s a lie, it was a month ago), and they had the timepiece cars and everything. Plus it’s Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg making a Cold War movie with the CIA. What more can a girl ask for?
