Release date (U.S.) : 8 January 2016

directed by : Quentin Tarantino

with : Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Zoë Bell, Bruce Dern

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.

Why do I want to see this ?
Eventually, after bitching for a while, Tarantino has finally decided to make this movie. 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.

The Revenant (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 8 January 2016

directed by : Alejandro González Iñárritu

with : Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy

plot : Centers on the 1820's story of frontiersman, Hugh Glass, who set out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Why do I want to see this ?
You can say whatever you want about Leonardo DiCaprio but the guy definitely knows which directors to pick up. I mean, a movie directed by González Iñárritu and starring DiCaprio sounds really awesome and I will definitely check this one out.

My verdict :
To be honest, even though I really enjoyed it, it didn’t really blow me away though. Basically, the first issue I had is that I heard so much about it before watching the damned thing, I already knew about the bear attack, about his son being killed, about the main character left behind and coming back for his revenge… Seriously, nothing happening in the first half was really surprising. Then, the 2nd issue I had is that I’m afraid I didn’t really care much about this story. I mean, sure, it was entertaining but it was not really original and it was certainly nothing really groundbreaking. Still, I really loved this movie above all because the whole thing just looked really amazing.

Release date (U.S.) : 4 March 2016

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Christian Bale, Teresa Palmer, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Joel Kinnaman, Holly Hunter, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Imogen Poots, Ryan O'Neal

plot : A man, temptations, celebrity, and excess.

Why do I want to see this ?
5 movies in 6 years for a director such as Malick?!? Who would have expected this? Honestly, I don't think it is really a good thing. Not that I enjoyed watching his new movies once every decade but I have seen the results with Steven Soderbergh making 2 movies a year for the last 10 years and the results were not really impressive... Anyway, we'll see!

My verdict :
Unfortunately, it turned out to be a major disappointment, I’m afraid. Indeed, after ‘To the Wonder’ which already barely worked, it seems that Malick finally really lost me here. Basically, once again, he gave us his typical impressionist directing style which is equally mesmerizing and frustrating, at least, in my case. The biggest chunk of the movie was about the main character struggling with his love life and it felt really reminiscent to ‘To the Wonder’. However, if ‘To the Wonder’ was mostly focusing on the relationship between Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko, in this movie, the main character had some various romances with 6 different women which was just way too much.

Steve Jobs (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 23 October 2015

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels

plot : His passion and ingenuity have been the driving force behind the digital age. However his drive to revolutionize technology was sacrificial. Ultimately it affected his family life and possibly his health. In this revealing film we explore the trials and triumphs of a modern day genius, Steven Paul Jobs.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I'm not sure I really cared for another movie about Steve Jobs. Indeed, the guy just passed away 3 years ago and it is rather weird to have already a 2nd movie about him. Still, anything directed by Danny Boyle and starring both Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet must be worth a look.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, I was really impressed. Indeed, I really loved this original approach and I thought it turned out to be a much more effective way to learn about a famous figure that the usual bullet points that you get with this genre. As a result, you really get the opportunity to dive into the psychological complexity of this character, thanks also to another really strong performance by Michael Fassbender who remains one of the best actors of his generation.

Sicario (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 2 October 2015

directed by : Denis Villeneuve

with : Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Benicio Del Toro

plot : An idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.

Why do I want to see this ?
Denis Villeneuve has recently become one of the most exciting directors at work nowadays, I loved all his movies I have seen so far ('Incendies', 'Prisoners', 'Enemy') and this one looks really awesome as well.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, even though I thought it was really good, I have to admit that it didn't completely blew me away though. I mean, it was definitely a strong production, no doubt it, with a great cast, a very solid directing and one of the best stories about the war on drugs I have seen for a very long time. So, it was definitely some strong and dark material and, yet, something bothered me about the damned thing though. Basically, you are pretty much like Emily Blunt's character, they keep you in the dark during the whole thing and, as a result, the plot was sometimes rather murky and I'm not sure I was really able to follow everything and now that I have seen the damned thing, I'm not sure that everything really made sense.

Inside Out (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 19 June 2015

directed by : Pete Docter

with : Amy Poehler

plot : Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters.

Why do I want to see this ?
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.

Ex Machina (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 24 April 2015

directed by : Alex Garland

with : Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac

plot : A young programmer is selected to participate in a ground-breaking experiment in synthetic intelligence by evaluating the human qualities of a breath-taking humanoid A.I.

Why do I want to see this ?
It already seemed to be a really cool movie but since it has been a huge critical success when it was released, I'm even more eager to check it out.

My verdict :
I wasn't disappointed and it turned out to be easily the smartest movie released in 2015. Indeed, even though it was visually quite appealing, it was above all the fascinating ideas developed in this picture that really appealed to me. In this movie, you can see already the issues if we would come up with a very intelligent AI. For example, how could we know what an AI is actually exactly thinking? What would be its purpose in life, a concept we humans are constantly struggling with? And most important, what would be then our purpose?

Spotlight (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 25 November 2015

directed by : Tom McCarthy

with : Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton,Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup

plot : The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

Why do I want to see this ?
Well, to be honest, this movie was not on my radar for a very long time but since it did win the Best Picture Academy Award, I really want to see it now. On top of that, there is a very strong cast involved and the story sounds really interesting.

My verdict :
Eventually, I thought it was a pretty good story, with some solid directing and a very strong cast. The realistic approach worked fine as well and it was really neat that they didn’t add any sub-plots about the romantic or family lives of the involved reporters. And, yet, somehow, the whole thing didn’t really blow me away. I mean, I do have a weak spot for the genre and I really loved ‘All the President's Men’ which was obviously an inspiration for this movie but, in this case, even though it was an interesting story, it never really grabbed me. That’s the tricky thing with such thrillers, right from the beginning, you actually know how it will end so the makers have to manage to find some other way to entertain or grab the interest of the viewers. In this case, since they took such a realistic approach, nothing really surprising or spectacular happens ever during this movie. I still enjoyed the damned thing though.

Regression (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 12 October 2015 (the Netherlands)

directed by : Alejandro Amenábar

with : Emma Watson, Ethan Hawke, David Thewlis

plot : A father is accused of a crime he has no memory of committing.

Why do I want to see this ?
Amenábar is a really intriguing director and I wonder why it took him 6 long years to finally come up with a new directing effort. To be honest, the plot doesn't sound really amazing but, with this director, it could turn out to be a really entertaining thriller.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, it turned out to be unfortunately a massive disappointment and during the whole thing , I was wondering if it was really bad or simply rather weak. I mean, it's not that the directing ot the acting were really bad, the main issue, in my opinion, is that it was rather poorly written. I mean, the concept did have some potential but it was just really poorly developed.

The Martian (2015)



Release date (U.S.) : 2 October 2015

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Kristen Wiig, Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain

plot : An astronaut stranded on Mars, struggles to survive.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, I have some mixed feelings about this one. Indeed, on one hand, it sounds great that Ridley Scott is making again some SF, especially if Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain are involved. On the other hand, 'Prometheus' was terribly disappointing, the title terribly sounds lame and generic and, honestly, it seems that Ridley Scott is basically making too many movies (at least one every year since 2000!) and it is usually not a wise choice if you want to be really creative.

My verdict :
I have to admit that it was indeed pretty good but, to be honest, it didn’t really manage to completely blow me away though. I mean, the whole thing looked really good, it was really entertaining and it was very nice that Scott tried to make a smart movie for once but it was still missing something in my opinion. Indeed, even though Matt Damon did deliver a solid performance, I never felt that the main character's life was really at risk and the fact that he keeps cracking jokes all the time might have been fun to watch and easier to swallow but it also really diminished the psychological impact of what he was actually going through.

Blackhat (2015)



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

directed by : Michael Mann

with : Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis

plot : American and Chinese forces work together on a case of high-level computer hacking.

Why do I want to see this ?
At last, after 5 longs years, Michael Mann is finally coming up with a new directing effort. Still, I'm a cautious about this project. Indeed, even if I gave it a good rating, 'Public Enemies' was actually rather disappointing and I'm not sure if it is the right genre for this director so it could be awesome but it could suck as well pretty bad.

My verdict :
Well, unfortunately, it turned out to be a massive disappointment and easily the weakest movie delivered by Michael Mann (I must admit that I still haven't watched 'The Keep' which has a very bad reputation). It's too bad because, with the current fear of cyber terrorism, the whole thing definitely had some potential but I was just amazed about how the whole thing was so poverly developed.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though I'm not a huge fan of Steven Spielberg's work, every movie he directs is an event and this one could be pretty good.

My verdict :
To be honest, I thought it was actually slightly disappointing. I mean, sure, Spielberg knows how to direct a movie so it was technically well made and visually appealing but I actually had a hard time to really care about this story. I mean, that’s always a tricky thing when you are dealing with a thriller for which you know the outcome from the very beginning, you still have to find a way to keep the audience captivated by the proceedings and this movie never managed to really entertain me.

Crimson Peak (2015)



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

directed by : Guillermo del Toro

with : Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston , Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska

plot : Young author Edith Cushing discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be.

Why do I want to see this ?
Personally, I was rather disappointed by 'Pacific Rim' but I'll give Guillermo del Toro the benefit of the doubt. This time, he's back working with some horror and, instead of some robots and some monsters, there is actually a decent cast so it could be pretty good.

My verdict :
This new project seemed to be the perfect material for this director. Indeed, he really delivered a high-class Gothic horror tale with some impressive sets, some gorgeous costumes, some great special effects and a very strong cast. And yet, the whole thing still failed to really impress me. Basically, at the end of the day, the story wasn't really strong in my opinion. Indeed, it is basically a very slow built-up and, very soon, it was pretty obvious what the hell was going on and, unfortunaly, I can’t say I really cared about the characters and what they were going through.

plot : The true story of Billy Bulger, Whitey Bulger, FBI agent John Connelly and the FBI's witness protection program that was created by J. Edgar Hoover.

This one sounds actually pretty promising but with Johnny Depp, I tend to lower my expectations lately. When will he get back to make some small weird indie flick like in the good old days?!? Still, this one might be pretty good after all so let's remain optimistic.

My verdict :
Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, I thought the whole thing was missing something to become really amazing. It was actually some strong material but I guess it wasn’t helped by the fact that this story was really notorious and, therefore, nothing really surprising or unexpected happened during the whole thing. Still, it was pretty good and Johnny Depp was really impressive in this flick.

with : Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany, Jeff Goldblum, Oliver Platt

plot : Art dealer Charles Mortdecai searches for a stolen painting that's reportedly linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Why do I want to see this ?
Honestly, I didn't like much 'Secret Window', the previous movie made by David Koepp starring Johnny Depp but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. On top that, even though I have pretty much lost faith in Johnny Depp, I will still watch anything starring this guy (at least, for the time being...).

My verdict :
Dear God, what the hell happened to Johnny Depp?!? Last year, he came up with 'Transcendence' which sounded promising but turned out to be eventually easily the most disappointing movie released in 2014 but, this year, he managed to show up in something even more underwhelming. Well, it was pretty pathetic, I'm afraid. I mean, where should I start? I guess, the biggest problem was that the story was just so generic and boring.

Even though it is pretty obvious that Pixar have lost their magic touch, their features always remain enjoyable so I will definitely check this one out at some point. Plus, it is at last not a sequel or a prequel but something original so who knows?

My verdict :
Eventually, 'Inside Out' turned out to be pretty amazing but, to be honest, I had my doubts that this 2nd feature from Pixar would manage to impress me as well and, indeed, it turned out to be a rather weak effort. I mean, don’t misunderstand me, it was still fairly entertaining but it never reached the level of their numerous masterpieces. I mean, the whole concept seemed interesting as it was about what the world would look like if the dinosaurs would have survived. Well, not much, if you believe this movie. Indeed, apparently, at the end of the day, the dinosaurs would have been slightly more evolved than us, growing up some crops and managing their own cattle which was all rather underwhelming.

plot : When Michelle, the CEO of a gaming software company, is attacked in her home by an unknown assailant, she refuses to let it alter her precisely ordered life.

Wow! Seriously, this movie came really from nowhere.

My verdict :
Obviously, the critics won't miss the fact that that it was rather misognist as the women seem to almost enjoy to be brutalised to the point that they might even fall in love with the perpetrator but Verhoeven has never been a subtle director in this area. Eventually, what won me over was this fascinating main character, perfectly played by Isabelle Huppert who is still one of the best French actresses. Indeed, during the whole thing, you are never sure if you should despise this manipulative ice queen bitch or admire this attractive incredibly sharp woman.

Sully (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 9 September 2016

directed by : Clint Eastwood

with : Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart

plot : The story of American pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who heroically landed a troubled aircraft full of passengers on the Hudson River

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I wasn't really impressed by 'American Sniper' and 'J. Edgar' and this movie would be the 3rd biopic in a row directed by Eastwood. He managed to make also 'Jersey Boys' in between but all these movies turned out to be rather underwhelming so I'm not so excited this time. Still, with this director, it is always worth a look.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 4 November 2016

directed by : Mel Gibson

with : Vince Vaughn, Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington

plot : WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people and becomes the first Conscientious Objector in American history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Why do I want to see this ?
Mel Gibson must have one of the worst reputations in Hollywood nowadays but I thought that 'Apocalypto' was one of the underrated movies in the last 10 years and I sure wonder what Gibson will do next.

Release date (U.S.) : 22 April 2016

directed by : Tom Tykwer

with : Tom Hanks, Ben Whishaw

plot : A failed American businessman looks to recoup his losses by traveling to Saudi Arabia and selling his idea to a wealthy monarch.

Why do I want to see this ?
For some reasons, the title doesn't really appeal to me and I have never been a huge fan of Tom Hanks, to be honest. On the other hand, I always had a weak spot for Tom Tykwer's work and I'm intrigued to see him working with such a huge American star.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2016

directed by : Marc Forster

with : Blake Lively, Yvonne Strahovski, Jason Clarke, Danny Huston

plot : A blind woman's relationship with her husband changes when she regains her sight and discovers disturbing details about themselves.

Why do I want to see this ?
Marc Forster is another director who had an impressive track-record but it all stopped with 'Quantum of Solace' and ever since he delivered only some rather underwhelming features. With this mind, I'm cautious with this new feature (the cast is already not really amazing) but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

The BFG (2016)

plot : The tale of a young girl, the Queen of England and a benevolent giant known as the BFG, who set out on an adventure to capture the evil, man-eating giants who have been invading the human world.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, except for 'The Fantastic Mr Fox', I usually didn't care much about Roald Dahl's book adaptation but since this one is directed by Steven Spielberg, I will definitely check it out.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? December 2016

directed by : Emir Kusturica

with : Monica Bellucci, Emir Kusturica, Predrag Manojlovic

plot : A story that stretches across war, blossoming love and living as a recluse.

Why do I want to see this ?
In the 90's, Kusturica was one of the most important directors in the world and I was a big fan of his work. Unfortunately, we haven't heard much from him during the 00's and that's too bad. Still, this movie could be really interesting so I will definitely check it out.

Release date (U.S.) : 2 September 2016

directed by : Kevin Smith

with : Johnny Depp, Natasha Lyonne, Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment, Stan Lee, Adam Brody, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Michael Parks

plot : Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.

Why do I want to see this ?
What?!? Another totally weird movie directed by Kevin Smith and again starring Johnny Depp!?? I'm rather speechless... Like everything involving Kevin Smith (and, as matter of fact, the same thing goes for Johnny Depp), it sounds pretty awesome on paper but the end-result could be pretty underwhelming so I will watch this one with caution.

Why do I want to see this ?
As a tradition, I used to put all the movies starring Johnny Depp in this list so that's why I have added those 3 last entries even if they don't seem to be so great but since his last movies have been increasingly underwhelming lately, I will add his future projects only if they really sound amazing.

London Fields (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : ?? 2016

directed by : Mathew Cullen

with : Jaimie Alexander, Amber Heard, Johnny Depp, Jim Sturgess, Billy Bob Thornton, Lily Cole

plot : Clairvoyant femme fatale Nicola Six has been living with a dark premonition of her impending death by murder. She begins a tangled love affair with three uniquely different men: one of whom she knows will be her murderer.

Why do I want to see this ?
This movie was supposed to be released in 2014 but it was been pushed back ever since. It seems that Johnny Depp joined this movie to please Amber Heard, his brand new wife, and I'm not sure if the premise is actually lame or pretty cool. It could go either way with this one. We'll see soon enough (or maybe not so soon).

Dunkirk (2017)
Release date (U.S.) : 21 July 2017

directed by : Christopher Nolan

with : Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy

plot : The film tells the story of the Dunkirk evacuation, which took place at the beginning of World War II.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I can't say I'm really excited by a WWII epic directed by Nolan. However, I have to admit that it is pretty neat that he is finally going to do something completely different this time. And, as usual with this director, I can't wait to see the end-result and this movie is already my top priority for 2017.

Release date (U.S.) : 29 December 2017

with : Jennifer Lawrence, Domhnall Gleeson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris

plot : Centers on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

Why do I want to see this ?
Right now, there is not much information about this movie but since Darren Aronofsky is one of the best directors at work nowadays, of course, this flick becomes a top priority right away. On top of that, Jennifer Lawrence keeps making some amazing choices in her career (she is not even 30 years old) and you wonder if she will even falter.

plot : ???

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a huge fan of Blade Runner and I think is the best SF flick ever made. Do I need to say more? It is going to be awesome!!! Apparently, it won't be directed by Ridley Scott after all but by Denis Villeneuve which could be eventually a blessing considering both directors recent track-records. Anyway, hopefully, it will be a little better than 'Prometheus' which was fine but not the masterpiece I was hoping for.

Weightless (2017)

plot : Two intersecting love triangles. Obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.

What the f*ck is this movie?!? I have honestly no idea but since Terrence Malick is directing, I'm definitely intrigued. Plus, the cast is quite awesome, You have to admit it. Still, it is rather funny and typical of Malick that, even though they shot all the scenes back in 2011 and yet, they keep pushing its release over and over again.

Why do I want to see this ?
On paper, this sounds really great, especially if they manage to have this cast with this director. I mean, after 20 long years, Ewan McGregor might finally work again with the director that launched his career, how awesome is that? Still, I can't help thinking that it might not happen after all or that it would turn out to be rather underwhelming after all. Anyway, we'll see.

'The Snowman' was the 2nd book I read about Harry Hole and, even though it was not as good as 'Phantom', it was still pretty neat. On top of that, there is a very good director and a top cast involved so I'm definitely excited about this movie.

Will it ever get made?!? It seems that Terry Gilliam will never stop trying and it might happen some day (or maybe not...). I have to admit it, the version with Jean Rochefort, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis really sounded awesome and it will never get made but who knows? It might still become an amazing masterpiece after all.

To be honest, it seems that Ben Affleck will be stuck playing Batman for the next 4 years at least (he might even direct the next stand-alone Batman feature as well) so I wouldn't be surprised if he would push back or even completely cancel this movie. It looks pretty cool though.

plot : Time-traveling agent Valerian is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I always had a hard time with Luc Besson. Indeed, as a producer, he has released some major commercial garbage for the last 20 years later and it has been ages since he has directed anything really impressive. Still, this one does sound awesome though. On top of that, I really wonder what Besson would do with another massive science-fiction feature almost 20 years after 'The Fifth Element' which was pretty neast, at least, visually.

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, 9 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.

Great list!
Posted: 5 years, 1 month 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.
Posted: 4 years, 12 months ago at Aug 31 9:12
I want to see the In Time too. I also want to see the 127 hours, because I love movies based on true stories. Great list!

I'm surprised you didn't include Moneyball. If you enjoyed The Social Network, you will enjoy Moneyball, as it is also written by Aaron Sorkin.

@sunset96, I'm not so sure about 'Moneyball' but it is only since a couple of days that I started hear good things about it.

A very good list but I recommend that you don't see "In Time" I thought the same thing in terms of the written story. But, well if you want to find out read my review. The choice is your's just thought I'd toss my two cents in. Also, I saw the movie through an early screening in case you're wondering.
