2013



Release date (U.S.) : 13 December 2013

directed by : Peter Jackson

with : Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, Stephen Fry, Lee Pace, Andy Serkis, Ian Holm

plot : The Dwarves, Bilbo and Gandalf have successfully escaped the Misty Mountains, and Bilbo has gained the One Ring. They all continue their journey to get their gold back from the Dragon, Smaug.

Why do I want to see this ?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy was like the Star Wars trilogy for the year 2000's. It was huge. I don't think Peter Jackson is going to mess up his legacy like George Lucas. It should be great and it is my top priority for 2013.

My verdict :
Honestly, I was rather skeptical about this flick for a while. Indeed, the more I thought about the first installment, the more I thought that my rating was a little bit too generous. However, after 5 minutes, I have to admit it, I was sold again. Indeed, what a spectacle! By now, it is pretty obvious those movies won't reach the awesomness of the first trilogy but those prequels are still damned entertaining.

Release date (U.S.) : 15 November 2013

directed by : Martin Scorsese

with : Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Matthew McConaughey, Jon Favreau

plot : A New York stockbroker refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration. Based on Jordan Belfort's autobiography.

Why do I want to see this ?
I thought 'Silence' would be Scorsese's next directing effort but it seems it wasn't meant to be but come on... It is Martin Scorsese's fifth collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio... Need I say more?!? Of course, it is a must-see.

My verdict :
Honestly, even though I did like 'Hugo', I didn't think it was really mind-blowing but, this time, I really liked this flick. Honestly, I didn't expect to be so funny and it is easily the most hilarious flick starring DiCaprio I have ever seen. Basically, even though it is not really a masterpiece, it is really entertaining and once again, another fine collaboration from the team Scorsese-DiCaprio.

Trance (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 5 April 2013

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, Vincent Cassel

plot : A thriller centered around a botched art heist that pits two men against one another, though they both develop unusual relationships with the same woman.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a huge fan of Danny Boyle and all his movies are must-see for me. Plus, there are 3 nice actors and an intriguing story and it is a thriller! Sounds like a winner...

My verdict :
I had some rather huge expectations and, unfortunately, I thought it was slightly disappointing. I mean, don't misunderstand me, I actually enjoyed it and I was entertained throughout the whole thing but it was definitely a weaker effort, especially considering the exceptional track-record of Danny Boyle.

The Counselor (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 15 November 2013

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem

plot : A lawyer finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a big fan of Ridley Scott's work so it is definitely a must see for me. Plus, there is a terrific cast and the plot is really interesting. Count me in.

My verdict :
Before its release, it was one of the most expected features to be released in 2013. Indeed, it was the first screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy and, after many directors fought to get this story, Ridley Scott was the chosen one and many, including myself, were expecting something pretty awesome. Unfortunately, when it was released, it turned out to be a massive commercial and critical flop and many thought it might even be one of the worst movies of the year. Anyway, after all this, I finally watched the damned thing and, I have to agree, it is not good. I don't think it was really awful but it was certainly really weak. Above all, surprisingly, it was actually poorly written in my opinion or maybe poorly edited.

Gravity (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 4 October 2013

directed by : Alfonso Cuarón

with : George Clooney, Sandra Bullock

plot : The lone survivor of a space mission to repair the Hubble telescope desperately tries to return to Earth and reunite with her daughter.

Why do I want to see this ?
After 'Children of men', I'm definitely eager to watch another science-fiction flick directed by Cuaron and anything starring George Clooney is worth a look. I must say I'm not really convinced by Sandra Bullock though. Angelina Jolie was actually the first choice (way more interesting in my opinion). And when she rejected the role, all the following actresses were tested : Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Abbie Cornish, Carey Mulligan, Sienna Miller, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Rebecca Hall and Olivia Wilde. And they ended up with....Sandra Bullock! Go figure... Anyway, it is still an interesting flick, count me in!

My verdict :
At last... A really good movie coming out in 2013!!! After seven long years, Alfonso Cuaron finally came up with a new directing effort and, boy, it was definitely worth the wait. Indeed, what a spectacle! From a visual point of view, it was quite mind-blowing and concerning Sandra Bullock, I was rather surprised that they picked her up but she did a great job, providing easily the best performance of her career.

Venus in Fur (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Roman Polanski

with : Emmanuelle Seigner, Louis Garrel, Mathieu Amalric

plot : An actress attempts to convince a director how she's perfect for a role in his upcoming production.

Why do I want to see this ?
Roman Polanski is probably my favorite director alive so, of course, I have to see this movie at some point. Furthermore, it seems that he has made an impressive come back since 'The Ghost Writer' making more movies, all critically acclaimed so this should be pretty good.

My verdict :
To be honest, I was first slightly worried. I mean, Vanda, the character played by Emmanuelle Seigner, was just so annoying and, on top of that, I thought that Seigner was barely convincing. Fortunately, as soon as she started auditioning, the whole thing became much more compelling to watch.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Terry Gilliam

with : Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, Mélanie Thierry

plot : A computer hacker's goal to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; this time, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Why do I want to see this ?
It sounds like a typically weird Gilliam feature and I'm totally going to watch it. Hopefully, he will manage to get this one done...

My verdict :
Eventually, even though I really wanted to like it, I have to admit that it didn't manage to keep my interest until the very end. Indeed, basically, it was pretty much some kind of psychotic surrealist nightmare mixed with a production designer's wet dream, which is something that could be said about most of the work coming from this director. Unfortunately, Gilliam decided to mainly remain in one place, Qohen's mad house/church/headquarters and you just get an handful of characters who didn't have much interesting to do or to tell.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? (5 December 2013 in the Netherlands)

directed by : Ethan and Joel Coen

with : Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman

plot : A singer-songwriter navigates New York's folk music scene during the 1960s.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though I kind of think the Coen Brothers are rather overhyped, I have watched all their movies and most (all?) of them were worth a look so I will definitely check this one out.

My verdict :
Depending on when I would watch one of the Coen brothers movies, I would either love it or it would make me indifferent. Apparently, this time, I was in a great mood since I really loved this flick. Indeed, I thought it was quite hilarious, one of their best sardonic comedies.

Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Jonathan Glazer

with : Scarlett Johansson

plot : Aliens descend upon Earth with a specific mission in mind: To abduct hitchhikers and take them back to their home world, where human meat is considered a delicacy.

Why do I want to see this ?
Jonathan Glazer is a rather unknown but definitely underrated director and he is 2 previous movies were really impressive so I'm really curious to see what he will do next. Furthermore, the story sounds really intriguing.

My verdict :
Eventually, it was visually impressive, as usual with this director, Scarlett Johansson delivered a solid performance and it was certainly bold and original but I just had a really hard time to connect with it. I mean, the whole thing was just so silent, for the first time in my life, I was almost missing one of these obnoxious side-kicks that they always provide so that a solitary lead character still has someone to talk to.

Side Effects (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 8 February 2013

directed by : Steven Soderbergh

with : Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones

plot : A woman turns to prescription medication as a way of handling her anxiety concerning her husband's upcoming release from prison.

Why do I want to see this ?
Soderbergh is a very interesting director and I'm curious to see what Rooney Mara will do next (she blew me away with 'The girl with the dragon tattoo'). The plot sounds also promising but it is worrying that Soderbergh keeps making 2 movies a year which is not a good thing qualitywise, in my opinion.

My verdict :
Basically, the first half was an interesting study about the effects of depression. It was definitely intriguing, even though I didn’t care much about the huge focus on the medication. But then, the second half turned into some efficient but still rather far-fetched thriller and, apparently, everything we saw in the first half about depression, the meds and all that stuff was just pretty much bullsh*t. The more I think about it, the more it actually annoys me but, at least, it was well made.

World War Z (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 21 June 2013

directed by : Marc Forster

with : Brad Pitt, Matthew Fox, David Morse

plot : Ten years after the human victory over the world wide Zombie epidemic, referred to as World War Z, Max Brooks scours the world collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived the conflict that almost eradicated humanity.

Why do I want to see this ?
Marc Forster is a very interesting director and I have enjoyed all his flicks. I can't wait to see him doing some Science-Fiction. Plus, there is Brad Pitt in it and he seems to do only good movies those last years.

My verdict :
I was first really excited by this flick, then really worried but it turned out to be OK. Basically, from a really ambitious project, it turned out to be a rather half-baked but still entertaining blockbuster.

Her (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 20 November 2013

directed by : Spike Jonze

with : Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde

plot : A lonely writer develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system that's designed to meet his every need.

Why do I want to see this ?
I was really impressed by 'Being John Malkovich' and even more by 'Adaptation' so I'm definitely eager to watch Spike Jonze's new directing effort.

My verdict :
At last, after being literally lost for so many years making 'Where the Wild Things Are', Spike Jonze was finally back and the end-result was once again pretty terrific. Indeed, he basically made a fascinating movie which worked on so many levels.

Mood Indigo (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 23 May 2013 (Netherlands)

directed by : Michel Gondry

with : Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh, Omar Sy, Philippe Torreton, Natacha Régnier, Alain Chabat

plot : A woman suffers from an unusual illness caused by a flower growing in her lungs.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have some rather mixed feelings about this one. I mean, Michel Gondry is an intriguing director and this story seems to be some perfect material for him but, on the other hand, I didn't like much the book. Indeed, even though it is a classic in the French literature, I thought it was rather boring and I preferred the darker stuff written by Boris Vian. Anyway, I will definitely check it out anyway.

Pacific Rim (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 12 July 2013

directed by : Guillermo del Toro

with : Idris Elba

plot : When an alien attack threatens the Earth's existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.

Why do I want to see this ?
The last time Guillermo del Toro released a movie was already in 2008. He was supposed to direct The Hobbit but it seems that it wasn't meant to be. I'm quite excited to see what he will do next and even though the casting is nothing really amazing, the plot sounds really kick-ass.

My verdict :
Unfortunately, it turned to be pretty disappointing. I mean, it was not bad at all and there were indeed some pretty massive action scenes but everything in between those action scenes was just really underwhelming.

Elysium (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 9 August 2013

directed by : Neill Blomkamp

with : Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley, Diego Luna

plot : Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Why do I want to see this ?
'District 9' was a nice surprise so I'm really curious to see what Neill Blomkamp will do next. And there is a very interesting cast involved as well.

My verdict :
So far, it is unfortunately the most disappointing movie I have seen in 2013. I mean, it wasn't bad at all, it looked good and started promisingly but, as the plot moved on towards the end, I couldn't deny the fact that the whole thing was actually pretty underwhelming and quite a step down from Blomkamp's impressive directing debut.

Release date (U.S.) : 10 May 2013

plot : An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.

Why do I want to see this ?
For once, I read the book (yes, I do read books from time to time...) and I thought it was a rather riveting story. And I'm curious as well to see DiCaprio and Luhrmann working again together.

My verdict :
I thought it was not bad but still nothing really amazing in my opinion. Still, the whole thing remains a nice watch, the modern music didn't bother me, and there was some very nice use of 3D (for once).

Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2013

directed by : David O. Russell

with : Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Robert De Niro, Jeremy Renner, Michael Peña, Jack Huston, Alessandro Nivola

plot : The 1970s-set true story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians - namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.

Why do I want to see this ?
I enjoyed a lot 'The Fighter' and I really loved 'Silver Linings Playbook' so I'm really curious to see what Russell will do next. Furthermore, the plot sounds interesting and the cast is just great. Count me in.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, it was pretty good but I can’t say I was really blown away by the whole thing though. Indeed, basically, it was a decent story but I couldn't help thinking that they were hiding its weaknesses between some rather supposedly deep voice-overs and by casting some big actors for virtually all the talking parts. I mean, don’t misunderstand me, all the actors involved delivered a fine job and it was entertaining but it wasn't a really great story.

The Immigrant (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2013

directed by : James Gray

with : Jeremy Renner, Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix

plot : An innocent immigrant woman is tricked into a life of burlesque and vaudeville until a dazzling magician tries to save her and reunite her with her sister who is being held in the confines of Ellis Island.

Why do I want to see this ?
James Gray is a very interesting director and it is already his fourth movie starring Joaquin Phoenix who is, thank God!, back from his ridiculous retirement/hiphop/hoax career. I will definitely check this one out.

My verdict :
At the end of the day, it was visually really neat and very well directed and the actors involved, especially Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix, all delivered some really strong performances. Basically, the problem I had is that even though the story was decent, it never managed to really grab me. As a result, even though the characters were fairly interesting, I never really cared about what they were going through.

Release date (U.S.) : 5 December 2013

directed by : Jim Jarmusch

with : Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin

plot : A story centered on two vampires who have been in love for centuries.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have seen almost all the movies directed by Jim Jamusch and his work is always worth a look. The cast is pretty cool and I really wonder what he will do with a vampire story.

My verdict :
After more than 15 years , Jim Jarmusch made again something that I really enjoyed. Indeed, somehow, the vampires have been an endless source of inspiration for the filmmakers, ever since 'Nosferatu' was made almost 100 years ago, and while most of the mainstream features like 'Twilight' are terribly underwhelming, Jarmusch managed to come up with something fresh and original. Indeed, instead of the usual boring action scenes, you get here a fascinating and melancholic character study about some of these night creatures.

Release date (U.S.) : 21 June 2013

directed by : Dan Scanlon

plot : A look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at the University of Fear -- when they weren't necessarily the best of friends.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, I'm not really happy that Pixar is making all those sequels and I think they should stick on new material. Still, even their sequels are better than most of the other animated features so I will definitely check this one out.

My verdict :
Eventually, I was positively surprised. I mean, it was still not really great but it was as least as good as 'Toy Story 3' and a big improvement on 'Brave' and 'Cars 2'. What worked this time was basically the fact that the two main characters, Mike and Sullivan, evolves in a realistic and compelling way and, at the end, you really believe that those guys are the best friends in the world. Unfortunately, once again just like 'Toy Story 3', the story was nothing really amazing.

directed by : Andrew Niccol

with : Saoirse Ronan

plot : One soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a captured human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a huge fan of Andrew Niccol and any new movie directed by him is a must-see. And the story sounds intriguing enough. One major low point though... It is an adaptation of the book written by Stephenie Meyer who is also responsible for those 'Twilight' books....

My verdict :
Well, the whole thing actually had some potential, that’s for sure, but it kept rubbing me in the wrong place. I mean, as usual with Niccol, the concept was really intriguing and the double performance by Saoirse Ronan was really good. Indeed, it was including a lot of inner dialogs between 2 distincts personalities reminding me of someone somewhat schizophrenic. Unfortunately, Meyer is notoriously well known for keeping the psychological level of her characters at the lowest level so this whole aspect was rather poorly developed.

Honestly, I'm getting a little tired of this whole Johnny Depp mania so I can't say this movie is a top priority. Still, if it is as good as the 1st Pirates of the Carribean movie , it will be definitely worth a look.

My verdict :
Honestly, I didn't think it was that bad at all. Indeed, when it turned out to be a huge flop with some pretty negative reviews, I pretty much lost all hope. To my surprise, I thought that Johnny Depp was quite hilarious and with Annie Hammer, they made a great couple. Unfortunately, all the rest of the movie was pretty underwhelming, except for a few decent action scenes. Still, all in all, it turned to be a nice surprise.

Last Vegas (2013)


Release date (U.S.) : 1 November 2013

with : Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline, Mary Steenburgen

plot : Four best friends in their late-60's decide to escape retirement and throw a Las Vegas bachelor party for the only one of them who has remained single.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have some rather low expectations about this one. I mean, the title is lame, the premise is lame, the director is lame, you shouldn't expect much from this. However, have you seen this cast?!? To see all those guys together sounds pretty amazing (Christopher Walken and Jack Nicholson were also attached at some point).

My verdict :
Eventually, I thought it was a decent watch but it could have been much more. I mean, it is basically one of these movies that show some really big names on the poster and, that's it, they are pretty much done and they don't feel the need to give a story that could be actually challenging or at least a little bit more entertaining. Basically, it was just too easy, too low-brow and too predictable. Still, in this genre, I have seen much worse.

Interstellar (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 7 November 2014

directed by : Christopher Nolan

with : Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Matt Damon

plot : An exploration of physicist Kip Thorne's theories of gravity fields, wormholes and several hypotheses that Albert Einstein was never able to prove.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though the Nolanites are annoying to death and even though 'The Dark Knight Rises' was rather disappointing, I'm still a huge fan of this director. Personally, I'm really glad that he is done with the Cape Crusader so he can finally move on towards something else. This movie sounds really exciting and it could be a great SF feature. Still, somehow, I'm less excited than before watching 'Inception' or TDKR. I guess I'm a little fed up with the hype around this guy. Anyway, with some lower expectations, I'm less likely to be disappointed so that's a good thing.

My verdict :
Eventually, I really liked the damned thing. To be honest, it wasn't blown away like I was with 'Inception' (which didn’t grow old very well eventually). Still, you get here some rather deep thoughts about life, death, love, the relativity of time and space and it was just exhilariting to see a blockbuster at least trying to tackle such ideas.

directed by : Peter Jackson

with : Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Martin Freeman, Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee, James Nesbitt, Ian Holm

plot : The Company of Thorin has reached Smaug's lair; but, can Bilbo and the Dwarves reclaim Erebor and the treasure? And, if so, can they hold on to it?

Why do I want to see this ?
It has just been announced that instead of 2 movies, they will release 3 movies for this book adaptation. Honestly, I'm rather skeptical. Indeed, 'The Lord of the Rings' were some huge books and to make 3 movie was a good call but 'The Hobbit' is only one children book. So, I'm afraid they will really strech it but we'll see and since the LOTR trilogy was so awesome, I still give it a high spot for 2014.

My verdict:
At last, we are done with Middle-Earth. I know, it might sound as if I didn't like the damned thing but the point is I definitely had some mixed feelings about it. Indeed, 2 years ago, when we went to see the first installment of this new trilogy, I was really excited. Unfortunately, it became clear at some point that this new tale would never reach the same level of awesomness. And yet, I still really enjoyed the damned thing.

Gone Girl (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 3 October 2014

directed by : David Fincher

with : Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris

plot : A woman mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary. Based on the novel, "Gone Girl."

Why do I want to see this ?
Of course, everything involving David Fincher is worth a look. And what a renaissance for Ben Affleck! Not only he is once again an Oscar winner but it seems that he has become one of the most in demand actors. Really wonder when this one will come out.

My verdict :
To be honest, I'm not sure that everything really did work but it was still a very good movie. Indeed, once again, Fincher came with a really original work and I'm actually surprised that it is actually so popular since it is far from being a mainstream feature. In my opinion, it is probably his weirdest movie since 'Fight Club' with so many layers that I will probably keep thinking about it for many days.

Noah (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 28 March 2014

directed by : Darren Aronofsky

with : Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Durand, Ray Winstone

plot : The Biblical Noah suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, I don't care much about Noah but anything directed by Aronofsky is a must-see in my book.

My verdict :
Once again, this movie was a huge gamble for Aronofsky and, for his first blockbuster, he sure picked up a tricky project. Fortunately, it didn't turn out to be a failure like 'The Fountain', even though if you believe the ratings on Imdb, it is his worst movie so far. Personally, I won't say it was one of his strongest efforts but it was still a really good flick and it is definitely worth a look.

directed by : Robert Rodriguez

with : Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Rosario Dawson, Josh Brolin, Juno Temple, Jessica Alba, Ray Liotta, Jamie Chung, Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Powers Boothe

plot : In the dark bowels of Sin City, Dwight plans to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy is trying to cope with Hartigan's death.

Why do I want to see this ?
Of course, I have been anxious to see this movie like anyone else and, finally, it seems that it is going to happen. Definitely can't wait to see this.

My verdict :
It is hard to believe that it took them almost 10 years to deliver such a disappointing feature... Basically, it looks like ‘Sin City’, it moves like ‘Sin City’, but it sure ain’t at the same level of this modern classic.

Inherent Vice (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 9 January 2015

directed by : Paul Thomas Anderson

with : Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon,Jena Malone, Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Maya Rudolph, Martin Short

plot : Set in 1960s Los Angeles, drug-fueled detective Larry "Doc" Sportello investigates a kidnapping case.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though 'The Master' didn't really blow me away, I was still pretty good (I'm still thinking about it, as a matter of fact) and I still have faith in PT Anderson. Finally, it is great that he, for once, won't take 5 years to come up with another flick.

My verdict :
Just like with 'The Master', I had some huge expectations with this one and just like 'The Master', I thought it was rather disappointing. Still a nice watch but just way too confused or confusing for my taste.

Release date (U.S.) : 12 December 2014

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro

plot : An account of Moses' hand in leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt.

Why do I want to see this ?
After Noah, this time, we are getting Moses. Apparently, Hollywood is getting hungry towards some massive biblical epic in 2014. I'm not sure I'm really the target audience but since I have a huge weak spot for Ridley Scott's work, I will definitely watch this one at some point.

My verdict :
As usual with this director, it really looked good and I thought that Christian Bale gave a solid performance but it was such a by-the-number adaptation of the Exodus, it was just quite underwhelming. The only original thing was to portray God or his messenger as a child but it seemed rather chosen at random and it didn’t have much impact.

Release date (U.S.) : 17 October 2014

directed by : Alejandro González Iñárritu

with : Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis

plot : A washed up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.

Why do I want to see this ?
Ever since I have seen 'Amores Perros', I have been a devoted fan of Iñárritu. Even 'Biutiful' which was his weakest output so far remained a decent feature. I have to admit I'm not sure about the plot, it could be a genius comedy but it could be quite terrible as well. It is also Iñárritu's first comedy. Still, it is a terrific director and the casting is pretty awesome as well.

My verdict :
It was really impressive and it completely deserved the praise it has received. It is a rich, deep, fun and entertaining tale and it is pretty awesome that the Academy dared to crown such an original tale.

Release date (U.S.) : 16 January 2015

directed by : Clint Eastwood

with : Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller

plot : A Navy SEAL recounts his military career, which includes more than 150 confirmed kills.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, the only reason why I put 'Jersey Boys' is because it is directed by Clint Eastwood and I don't have much hope concerning this flick. On the other hand, this movie really sounds terrific and I'm really curious to see what Good Old Clint with this intriguing plot. On top of that, Bradley Cooper is becoming one of the most interesting actors at work nowadays so I'm really eager to check this one out.

My verdict :
Eventually, I didn't think it was offensive, I didn't think it was fascinating either but it was still a decent watch. Basically, the whole thing felt like a love letter to this American hero and I think it was just a tremendous success because the guy was hugely popular in the US and because of the fact that he just died about a year before the movie was released. At the end of the day, since the guy was so popular, they didn't dare being controversial in anyway and, as a result, you get one of the most straigtforward biopics I have ever seen.

plot : In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though the plot is rather intriguing, it is above all the amazing cast which really attracts me. It is rather surprising that Clooney would release so quickly another directing effort (I haven't even seen 'The Ides of March' yet) but it seems to be an interesting follow-up.

My verdict :
Eventually, it turned out to be the most disappointing movie I have seen so far released in 2014... With such a cast and story, there was a great potential but it seems that Clooney is already showing his limitations as a director.

Transcendence (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 18 April 2014

directed by : Wally Pfister

with : Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Cole Hauser

plot : Two leading computer scientists work toward their goal of Technological Singularity, as a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent them from creating a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain.

Why do I want to see this ?
Instead of a watching a movie directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Johnny Depp, why not watch a movie starring Depp and directed by Nolan's cinematographer? Even though Johnny Depp's latest efforts were rather underwhelming, I still have faith in the guy plus the rest of the cast is pretty solid and the plot sounds intriguing so I will definitely check this one out.

My verdict :
Well, it was definitely disappointing, that's for sure. I mean, since Wally Pfister was making his directing debut, the whole thing looked really good, no doubt about that but, unfortunately, the story didn’t really work. I'm not sure what bothered me the most, the fact it was filled with some really obvious plot-holes or the fact that half of it didn't make much sense. Eventually, what bothered the most was probably incapable they were to handle this superior form of intelligence.

plot : A famous hotel's legendary concierge strikes up a friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé.

By now, I haven't even seen yet 'Moonrise Kingdom', Anderson latest directing effort which was considered one of the best movies released in 2012, but I'm already planning to see this one. I mean, check out the cast! I wonder if they will eventually all turn up but it is definitely an intriguing picture.

My verdict :
Even though 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' remains so far my favorite movie directed by Wes Anderson, this one was not far behind. Indeed, at last, Anderson has managed to mix his quirky visual style with a really entertaining narrative (something I was missing in his previous productions) and the end-result was just quite awesome.

plot : A tour into the heart of a Hollywood family chasing celebrity, one another and the relentless ghosts of their pasts.

Why do I want to see this ?
Like most of the latest movies directed by David Cronenberg, this flick received some mixed reviews but, apparently, Julianne Moore gave an impressive performance and everything released by this director is worth a look in my book.

Why do I want to see this ?
Not so long ago, I saw 'Cosmopolis' which was just terrible and, by far, the least satisfaying movie directed by David Cronenberg so far. With this in mind, I was rather apprehensive about his following directing effort but, fortunately, it was much better. To be honest, I still didn’t really like it though but it was at least much more watchable.

Big Eyes (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2014

directed by : Tim Burton

with : Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Jason Schwartzman, Terence Stamp, Danny Huston

plot : A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Why do I want to see this ?
Right now, I’m being really cautious with anything involving Tim Burton. Pretty much like Johnny Depp, after a series of dubious choices, I grew up a little fed up with the guy. Still, I give him the benefit of the doubt, and this time, it seems to be something more original than his last movies and neither Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham-Carter are involved so it might end being a nice surprise.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, I thought it was a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. The main issue, I guess, is that it was a fairly entertaining story but it was nothing really amazing. I mean, it must have worked fine on paper, for a short story in the newspaper, but it was just not enough to fill up more than 100 minutes of running time. Eventually, I don't think you really get to know the characters after all and the whole thing was just too focused on telling us the facts. At least, Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams did what they could with this material and they managed to deliver some solid performances.

Life Itself (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 19 January 2014

directed by : Steve James

with : Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog, Roger Ebert, Chaz Ebert, Errol Morris

plot : The story and struggles of film critic, Roger Ebert, based on his memoir, "Life Itself."

Why do I want to see this ?
I’m a massive fan of Roger Ebert, he was and still is a role-model to me, his movie knowledge was just plain amazing and it seems to be a great documentary. I will definitely watch this one whenever I get the opportunity, probably not in the movie theater but definitely if it is broadcasted on TV or eventually on DVD.

My verdict :
Of course, being a fan and all, I pretty much already knew everything told in this documentary but it was still fascinating to go through the major steps in his life. I mean, to see this guy at a the end of the road, crippled and unable to speak, and yet still full of life, still creatively productive, it was just incredibly inspiring and increased even more the respect I already had for this man.

Good Kill (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Andrew Niccol

with : Zoe Kravitz, January Jones, Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood

plot : A family man begins to question the ethics of his job as a drone pilot.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though I still have to watch Niccol's previous directing efforts ('In Time' and 'The Host', they both flopped by te way), I still give this guy the benefit of the doubt. This time, he is making a thriller again with Ethan Hawke, 18 years after 'Gattaca' and who knows, it might be great again.

My verdict :
It seems that Andrew Niccol has become really productive those last years releasing his 3rd movie in 4 years. It's too bad that none of those were actually any good. I mean, I have to admit it, this last one was not bad and it definitely had some potential but it shows that, even if an idea seems interesting, it doesn’t always result into an interesting movie. Indeed, it sounded really intriguing to make a movie about warfare done by drones but, eventually, you ended up with a pilot with his crew staring at their screens in some container for half of the duration. On top of that, the main character's family life was also so pedestrian and unoriginal.

Honestly, I lost faith in Kevin Smith quite a long time ago but I still will watch this flick at some point and who knows? Maybe it could turn out to be awesome after all. The plot still sounds like the awful 'The Human Centipede' though so it could be quite awful as well. I certainly wonder about the weird cameo provided by Johnny Depp.

Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2014

plot : A witch conspires to teach important lessons to various characters of popular children's stories including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel.

Why do I want to see this ?
Man, I have some serious doubts about this one... I mean, Johnny Depp, who used to be one of my favorite actors, is seriously getting on my nerves lately, I don't care much about musicals and I really hated 'Chicago' also directed by Rob Marshall. Still, the cast is way too attractive so I might as well give it at a try.

My verdict :
Well, even though it was an interesting concept to mix all these fairy tales together, it didn’t make up for a really satisfying story. On top of that, even though at some point, all these little stories seemed to be neatly concluded, it still went on for another 30 minutes which were even more underwhelming and rather unnecessary. Finally, another disappointment was the fact that, even though Johnny Depp was prominently displayed in all the promotional material, he actually showed up just for 2 scenes only.

Jersey Boys (2014)


Release date (U.S.) : 20 June 2014

directed by : Clint Eastwood

with : Christopher Walken

plot : Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons-the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, I have some rather low expectations about this one. I mean, Clint Eastwood directing a musical?!? I doesn't sound like a great idea to me... On the other hand, I have seen all the movies directed by Good Old Clint so I will definitely check this one as well at some point.

My verdict :
First of all, I thought it would be an adaptation of the musical of the same name but, no, it was in fact a really straightforward biopic of this band. It should have been an improvement since I'm not a huge fan of the musical genre but, even so, I really didn’t care much about the damned thing. Above all, I thought the whole thing was just seriously boring. I mean, it took them at least 1 hour before they finally released their first hit, so it was pretty slow but, on top of that, everything that happened during that time was rather underwhelming. Even worse, from the moment they got their breakthrough, the whole thing became even more boring.

plot : In post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunters try to find shelter during a blizzard but get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception.

Honestly, it has been more than a decade since one of his movies has really blown me away but, all of his movies are always an event so I will definitely check this out and, hopefully, this time around, he wil really give something truly impressive.

My verdict :
Well, at last, Quentin Tarantino has made an amazing come-back, delivering his best movie since many years. I mean, this time, even though it was maybe not perfect, it surely came close. Basically, not only it was a gorgeous Western with a great soundtrack by the legendary Ennio Morricone, it was also combined with a spellbinding thriller, some kind of mystery that could have come out of an Agatha Christie novel or an Alfred Hitchcock movie and this combination was just really spellbinding.

For the last few years, Pixar has let us down with some rather underwhelming sequels (I wasn't even really impressed by 'Toy Story 3') but they are finally coming up with something original and the concept sounds really amazing so I'm really hopeful about this one.

My verdict :
Eventually, there was really nothing to worry about. Indeed, the whole thing was just downright impressive and it worked on every possible level. As expected, the animation was quite gorgeous, even though I easily could have done without the 3D. Above all, it is the amount of depth in the story and the characters involved that made the whole thing quite mesmerizing to behold.

I'm looking forward to The Social Network A) as someone who grew up during the rise of the internet and B) For Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor's score.
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Nov 18 12:44
I'm with ya on a number of these, particularly "Fair Game", "127 Hours", "The Tourist", the Hobbit flicks, and of course, the Alien prequel. I did see 'Hereafter' last week...

Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait! Trent Reznor did the score for 'The Social Network'?!! Okay, NOW is want to see it.

Lots of these I want to see as well. Some I'll have to watch trailers for before I commit to wanting to see them though. Keeping an eye on this list, as some of these I wasn't aware of yet.

Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Jul 12 14:20
I didn't care for the Social Network, but it wasn't my kind of film.

The Black Swan I thought I would like, but it didn't stand out to me.

Fair Game ... There are a lot of atrocities committed by governments, this one wasn't worth wasting film on.

127 Hours: I liked this movie, but it was a bit long.

True Grit: Everyone thought no one could top John Wayne, but you didn't have too. The acting was great and the directing was better than the original.
