Dunkirk (2017)



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

directed by : Christopher Nolan

with : Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance

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.

My verdict :
Well, it seems to be already another box-office hit for Nolan which is even more remarkable since you wouldn't expect a movie dealing with WWII to be able to compete with your usual summer blockbusters. Still, to be honest, I don't think it will be remembered as one of his best movies. I mean, sure, I was glad that he was at last doing something else than a super-hero flick or some high-concept science-fiction thriller, but at the end of the day, even if it looked different, it was still yet another thriller, something he has been doing through his whole career. Furthermore, I have seen my share of movies dealing with this conflict and, even though it was really good, I have seen better to be honest. On top of that, I didn't care much for the mixed chronology and I didn't help that really none of the involved characters was developed at all. Still, from a technical point of view, it was really quite impressive and I have to admit that this movie was just seriously entertaining.

mother! (2017)



Release date (U.S.) : 15 September 2017

directed by : Darren Aronofsky

with : Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Domhnall Gleeson, Michelle Pfeiffer, 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 ever falter.

My verdict :
I have to admit it, it was a difficult movie to read as the whole thing was just so bizarre and chaotic and I can imagine that not everyone might be able to connect with this picture. But that was also the real beauty of it, the fact that you could give it pretty much any meaning you want. Someone might think that it is a story about motherhood, some others might say it is about how chaotic our society and way of life has become. As far as I was concerned, it felt like a fascinating and endless nightmare, the way everything seemed familiar and yet odd at the same time and the way the main character seemed to a be mere spectator with no control over the events happening in front of her. Their world kept shifting, unfolding and exploding with some continuous random small or big events which felt really reminiscent to a nightmare, at least, to me, and this process was quite spellbinding to behold.

Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2017

directed by : Paul Thomas Anderson

with : Daniel Day-Lewis

plot : Set in the fashion world of 1950s London, Charles James is commissioned to design for members of high society and the royal family.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I was slightly disappointed by 'Inherent Vice' and 'The Master' but a new movie directed by PT Anderson is always an event. On top of that, he is going to work again with the great Daniel Day-Lewis which makes this movie automatically one of my top priorities. Finally, it will be Daniel Day-Lewis's last movie as he announced that he will be retiring from acting so this movie has automically become pretty much a must-see for any decent movie buff.

Release date (U.S.) : 6 October 2017

directed by : Denis Villeneuve

with : Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks

plot : Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

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 decent enough but not the masterpiece I was hoping for.

My verdict :
Since I kept hearing some really amazing things about this movie and since I am a huge fan of the 1st movie, I became so excited about the damned thing and I was so eager to finally check it out. Well, eventually, even though it was indeed really good, I don't think it was really so great after all. To be honest, I have a strong feeling that many critics and viewers have overpraised this movie because everybody pretty much dismissed its predecessor when it was released when it was in fact a masterpiece so, this time around, they didn't want to feel like some idiots. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, sure, it was visually really neat and it was quite amazing to come back to this fascinating futuristic world but it was not as groundbreaking as I expected. Same thing about the story, I mean, it was pretty neat to see a sequel coming so long after the previous installment with a really decent story but, once again, the story in 'Blade Runner' worked better for me. On the positive side, I really loved how they developed Ryan Gosling's character who was really complex and constantly interesting and entertaining.

Song To Song (2017)



Release date (U.S.) : 17 March 2017

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Val Kilmer, Michael Fassbender, Holly Hunter

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

Why do I want to see this ?
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 all the way back in 2011 and yet, they kept pushing its release over and over again.

My verdict :
To be honest, since ‘Knight of Cups’ already turned out to be a disappointment, I had already lowered down my expectactions concerning this movie. Well, unfortunately, even though it turned out to be slightly better, once again, I still had a hard time to care about the damned thing. I mean, as usual with this director, the whole thing looked awesome thanks to award-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, even if they made an excessive use of wide angle lenses. Furthermore, even if this movie didn’t really find an audience, it was obviously a treat for all the actors involved to work following Malick’s unique way of shooting movies. Eventually, one of the biggest issues with this movie was that its concept and ideas were already heavily used in ‘To the Wonder’ and ‘Knight of Cups’ . Furthermore, ‘To the Wonder’ had the advantage to be dealing with only one love triangle while this movie had to deal with no less than 3 love triangles involving 5 different couples which was obviously way too much.

Release date (U.S.) : 31 March 2017

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner

plot : After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.

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.

My verdict :
Eventually, did we really need this sequel? Probably not but was it a bad movie? Certainly not either. Indeed, what made this movie still work was the fact that Danny Boyle was involved and the original cast as well. It was especially really neat to see Ewan McGregor finally working again with this director after 20 long years but the rest of the cast was fine as well. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't give all these characters some average middle-class lifes with wife, kids and a decent job. So, the set-up was pretty good but I'm afraid the makers still struggled to give these characters something interesting to do. Indeed, the whole thing was pretty random and there were several attempts to get them involved in some various sub-plots but they were all rather all-baked. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch.

'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.

Radegund (2017)

plot : The Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector, refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II and is executed by them in 1943.

It seems that Malick has become some kind of wokaholic as it would be his 7th directing effort in 7 years already. To be honest, I thought that his last 3 movies ('To the Wonder', 'Knight of Cups' and 'Song to Song) were all really disappointing but he remains a fascinating director so I will definitely check this movie as well at some point.

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

directed by : Luc Besson

with : Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Rutger Hauer, Rihanna

plot : A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

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.

My verdict :
Before watching this movie, I was hoping that it would be at least just as visually impressive as 'The Fifth Element' turned out to be 20 years ago. Well, eventually, I wasn't disappointed as this movie was easily the most amazing movie visually speaking that I have seen since 'Avatar'. Indeed, Luc Besson managed here to create a fascinating world with so many different species and, on top of that, there were 2 or 3 scenes in the movie that were just dazzling to behold. Eventually, it is one of the very few movies you should watch in 3D and obviously in the movie theater. Still, was it really a great movie after all? Not really, I'm afraid. Unfortunately, even though the concept was pretty generic (everyone is looking for some kind of MacGuffin), Besson still managed to end up with an incredibly messy story and most of the scenes followed each other very awkwardly. Still, spite of its flaws and even though the story didn't really work, the whole thing was just visually mind-blowing.

Release date (U.S.) : 19 May 2017

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Danny McBride

plot : The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I have seriously my doubts about this one... Indeed, 'Prometheus' was, before its release, one of the most exciting movies coming up in 2012 but, then, it turned out to be just decent but nothing really impressive after all. Personally, since the end-result was rather underwhelming, I didn't even expect them to come up with a sequel at all. The fact that they changed the title from 'Prometheus 2' to 'Alien: Covenant' gives me even more the feeling that they actually have no idea about what they are actually doing with this material. Anyway, we'll see...

My verdict :
Even though I wasn't really expecting a masterpiece, at least, I hoped this movie would be an improvement on 'Prometheus'. Unfortunately, I turned out to be even more underwhelming and I would go as far as saying that it is the weakest installment in this franchise (of course, without counting the 'Alien vs Predator' crap). Indeed, if one of the biggest issues with 'Prometheus' was probably the fact that it was too ambitious, this time, it was the other way around as Ridley Scott didn't even really try. Seriously, the guy came up with the most generic plot you could think of and pretty much all the new ideas introduced in the previous movie were basically thrown out of the window and the only thing that remained was the fact that David was apparently a really psychotic and megalomaniac robot.

plot : Two brothers attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have some mixed feelings about this one. Indeed, on one hand, it is really nice that Soderbergh has decided to make a come-back from his self-inflected retirement but, on the other hand, it is rather lame to announce that you retire from film directing and then, only a couple of years later, to change your mind about the damned thing. Concerning the cast, half of it is really neat (Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver) but the rest is rather lame (Katie Holmes, Seth MacFarlane). Anyway, we'll see.

I'm still amazed that 'The Hateful Eight' didn't get more love when it was released since it was, in my opinion, easily the best movie directed by Taratinon since 'Jackie Brown'. Anyway, I hope he will come again with something amazing and I'm already glad that it is going to tackle something completely different than his previous movies.

Gemini Man (2019)
Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2019

directed by : Ang Lee

with : Will Smith

plot : It is about an aging assassin who tried to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities.

Why do I want to see this ?
10 years ago, a movie directed by Ang Lee and starring Will Smith would have been a major event but it has been a while since Will Smith has made anything critically or even commercially interesting. Still, I'm a huge fan of Ang Lee so I will definitely check this one out at some point.

Ad Astra (2019)
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : James Gray

with : Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones

plot : An Army Corps engineer searches across the galaxy for his father, who disappeared on a mission to find alien life 20 years ago.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though each time I have tried with James Gray, I was actually more or less disappointed but, once again, he came up with something really intriguing. Furthermore, it could be pretty neat to see Brad Pitt working with this director.

Dumbo (2019)
Release date (U.S.) : 29 March 2019

directed by : Tim Burton

with : Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito

plot : A live-action remake of the animated Disney film, "Dumbo", in which a young elephant with extraordinarily large ears develops the skill to fly.

Why do I want to see this ?
It has been at leat 10 years since Burton has really impressed me and it is rather sad that the guy is coming up with yet another remake instead of something really original. Still, I always had a weak spot for 'Dumbo' and there is a very interesting cast involved so I think I will still check this movie at some point.

2020

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

directed by : Steven Spielberg

with : Harrison Ford

plot : ???

Why do I want to see this ?
Of course, like everyone else, I was rather disappointed by the 4th installment and, on top of that, at almost 80 years old, you wonder if Harrison Ford might not be too old for the part. Anyway, out of sheer nostalgia, I will definitely check this (hopefully last) new installment.

?????

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

directed by : Martin Scorsese

with : Leonardo DiCaprio

plot : Members of the Osage tribe in the United States are murdered under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s sparking a major F.B.I. investigation involving J. Edgar Hoover.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though you might argue that the films Scorsese made with DiCaprio will never reach the level of the classics he made with De Niro, they still delivered some fine movies together and, of course, their 6th collaboration will be another major movie event.

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

directed by : David Fincher

with : Brad Pitt

plot : Plot is unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, even though 'World War Z' turned out to be a decent watch, its production was mess and the movie itself barely worked so, with such circumstances, I would normally never care for such a sequel. However, somehow, they managed to get David Fincher on board and everything coming up from this director is a must see in my book.

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

directed by : Clint Eastwood

with : Judy Greer, Jenna Fischer

plot : American soldiers discover a terrorist plot on a Paris-bound train.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, it has been a while since Clint Eastwood has really impressed me. Indeed, he has focused way too much on real life tales ('Sully', 'American Sniper', 'Jersey Boys', 'J. Edgar') which were all rather underwhelming, even if the very popular 'American Sniper', and I wish he would come up with something else this time around. At least, the plot sounds really intriguing.

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: 6 years, 11 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.

Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Dec 4 3:07
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!

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.

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.
Posted: 6 years ago at Oct 5 16:33
@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.
Posted: 6 years ago at Oct 15 5:10
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.

The Sin City sequel now has an official release date of October 4, 2013. :)

Posted: 5 years ago at Sep 19 12:58
I can't wait to see most of these, especially the Hobbit movies!

Erg Interessante lijst. Sin City 2 is helaas uitgesteld tot lente 2014.
