Release date (U.S.) : 9 August 2019

directed by : Quentin Tarantino

with : Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt

plot : A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.

Why do I want to see this ?
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.

My verdict :
I think it turned out to be his most challenging movie so far which is not necessarily a bad thing, in the contrary, but I wish this challenge would have been more rewarding. I mean, I really liked it but it just never left like a real home-run to me. Still, on a technical side, it was just a marvel to watch. Indeed, Tarantino went very far in the mood and the details to create a believable version of Hollywood at the time. On top of that, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio were both pretty good and I was above all impressed by DiCaprio who gave here actually one of his best performances. Indeed, what the main point was probably the nostalgia that Tarantino has for this time and place but, if you don't share this feeling, well, there are so many references that you will either miss or even won't care at all. On top of that, even if it is something you probably should expect from this director, the whole thing was pretty random. Indeed, in 'Pulp Fiction', you had also such seemingly random mess but every single scene did end up being crucial, which wasn't really the case here. Anyway, if it didn't completely won me over, it was still a really bold project, much more interesting than all these remakes, reboots and sequels that you get to see nowadays at the movie theater.

The Irishman (2019)

Release date (U.S.) : 27 November 2019

directed by : Martin Scorsese

with : Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel, Anna Paquin

plot : A mob hit man recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.

Why do I want to see this ?
On paper, this sounds like an amazing movie. I mean, a movie directed by Martin Scorsese and starring such actors like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel sounds like a sure masterpiece and it would have been the case if they would have been made it 20 or even 30 years ago but, nowadays, De Niro's and Pacino's body of work have become terribly underwhelming but, still, to see Scorsese and De Niro working together 20 years after 'Casino' is pretty awesome. Furthemore, even though I'm glad I will be able to see it as soon as it hits Netflix, the fact that I won't see it on the silver screen is rather sad.

My verdict :
It turned out to be rather difficult to judge this movie after all and, to be honest, I wasn’t really blown like I was expecting to be. First of all, even though the CGI deaging of the main cast had pretty much doubled the costs of the production and had been widely praised, I didn’t feel it was really convincing. Seriously, I was constantly wondering what age their characters were supposed to be and it was pretty obvious through the whole duration that all the actors (Robert de Niro (75), Al Pacino (78) and Joe Pesci (75)) were so much older than their respective characters. Even if ‘Gemini Man’ was a major flop and a rather average action flick, at least, the 20 year old version of Will Smith was just mindblowing to behold. Concerning the character themselves, I thought that Russell Bufalino was actually the most interesting one. Indeed, if Al Pacino delivered a solid performance, to be honest, Jimmy Hoffa felt rather clueless or at least really reckless considering the way he handled the threats from the mob. Concerning Frank Sheeran, De Niro was fine as well but I was missing some kind of drive behind his actions. Still, even if this story might seem to be pretty basic, it was not a simple movie, especially due to the fact that it was Scorsese’s longest movie so far and I think I would need to rewatch it at some point to make up my mind for good about the damned thing.

Release date (U.S.) : 14 February 2019

directed by : Robert Rodriguez

with : Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, Michelle Rodriguez, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Mahershala Ali

plot : In the 26th century, a female cyborg is rescued from the scrapheap by a scientist.

Why do I want to see this ?
I just love the comic-book and I wonder what James Cameron will do with this. Even though I would love to see this flick which would have been much more interesting than 'Avatar' in my book, for a while, I was afraid he would eventually never make the damned thing.... Eventually, it will be directed by Robert Rodriguez after all but even though I'm glad they're finally moving forward with this project, I wish they picked up a more inspiring director but I'm still intrigued. Finally, I recently saw the first trailer and, to be honest, the whole thing really looks awful and nothing like the comic-book and, by now, I'm pretty sure the damned thing will turn out to be a huge box-office failure and I still want to check it out though...

My verdict :
For how long have I been waiting to see this movie? 10 years? 15 years? In spite of the negative hype it received even before it was released, I still wanted to check the damned thing. Well, eventually, I have to admit it, it didn't turn out to be a masterpiece, but it was far from being a failure either and I enjoyed most of it. Indeed, even though it felt rather derivative by now, the world created was interesting enough and visually quite impressive but I wouldn't expect less from Cameron. Above all, they completely nailed the main character. Not only the way she looked worked very well (the controversy about her big eyes turned out to be completely unjustified after all) but, above all, she was just so charismatic, complex, and completely faithfull to the comic-book.

Release date (U.S.) : 14 June 2019

directed by : Jim Jarmusch

with : Chloë Sevigny, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits, Danny Glover, RZA, Iggy Pop

plot : The peaceful town of Centerville finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves.

Why do I want to see this ?
Apparently, Jarmusch will be dealing with zombies this time around and I wonder if he will nail this genre like he did with the vampire genre with 'Only Lovers Left Alive'. On top of that, he has a pretty neat cast at his disposal. Anyway, any new movie coming from this director is always a must-see in my book.

My verdict :
Even it if was maybe not Jim Jarmusch’s worse movie, unfortunately, it was still his laziest effort so far. Basically, the main issue was probably that there was no pulse whatsoever. Of course, that’s something that you could argue about most of Jim Jarmusch’s movies but the issue in this case was that he tried to deliver a comedy but the damned thing was barely funny after all. I mean, at some point, when Bill Murray asks Adam Driver how he knows that everything will end badly, Driver tells him he knows it because Jim gave him the full script. And that was one of the better jokes. Furthermore, even if Jarmusch probably gathered his strongest cast so far but, it actually backfired. Indeed, there were basically too many characters involved and, as a result, none of them was really developed. Even worse, none of them was really interesting or entertaining. It’s such a shame because, a couple of years ago, Jarmusch managed to do something really neat with the vampire genre with ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’. However, this time, he tried to tackle the current zombie craze but, unfortunately, he did absolutely nothing interesting with an already completely overdone genre.

Gemini Man (2019)

Release date (U.S.) : 10 October 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.

My verdict :
I have to admit it, the story was rather weak and I didn't help that Rian Johnson already did something similar a few years back with 'Looper'. However, the plot or lack of it was obviously not the selling point as the whole thing was in fact basically another experiment from Ang Lee to push the current movie technology and, this area, it was fortunately much more successful. On one hand, they managed to deliver a completely realistic and believable younger version of Will Smith and the end-result was just amazing. And, then, the other technological breakthrough was obviously the HFR shooting. Well, to be honest, it is still not really working yet but it has some potential. Eventually, I think it was after all an interesting experimental action flick and I believe it is worth a look.

A Hidden Life (2019)

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

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Nyqvist, Jürgen Prochnow, Bruno Ganz

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.

Why do I want to see this ?
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.

Joker (2019)

Release date (U.S.) : 4 October 2019

directed by : Todd Phillips

with : Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz

plot : An original standalone origin story of the iconic villain not seen before on the big screen, it's a gritty character study of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I have been going back and forth with this movie. Indeed, on one hand, there is no doubt that Joaquin Phoenix is one of the best actors of his generation and it would be really neat to see him tackling this iconic character. However, on the other hand, Todd Phillips, the guy behind 'The Hangover' trilogy, might not be the worst director in the world but he is hardly someone that I really admire. Still, since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I decided to add it after all in this list.

My verdict :
To be honest, even though I did like this movie, I can’t say I was completely blown away after all. I have to admit that it took me a while to figure out what actually bothered with this movie which had been virtually universally loved so far. Wat is the saturation? I mean, we get such an overdose of super-hero movies. Furthermore, even though they are all making a big fuss about the fact that this movie could be a revolution in this genre, in my opinion, the story was actually rather basic and predictable. I mean, it was a decent story but this tale of a rather sad mentally ill man slowly becoming homicidal was not really original. And, yet, there is no denying that, once again, Joaquin Phoenix gave us here another intense and spellbinding performance. Basically, the whole thing was some kind of amazing dark one-man-show and Phoenix definitely made the most of it.

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

directed by : Roman Polanski

with : Emmanuelle Seigner, Jean Dujardin, Louis Garrel, Mathieu Amalric, Melvil Poupaud, Denis Podalydès

plot : In 1894, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment at Devil's island.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though Roman Polanski is probably one of the most controversial directors nowadays, I have always been a huge fan of his work, I have seen all his movies and, of course, I will his latest directing effort. However, I have to admit that I didn't care much for his 2 previous movies, especially 'D'après une histoire vraie' turned out to be rather weak. On top of that, even though this time the material might sound like an ambitious historical drama, I can't say I feel much interest for this really famous story, at least, in France. Anyway, I will still definitely check it out.

Release date (U.S.) : 1 February 2019

directed by : Dan Gilroy

with : Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Tom Sturridge, Toni Collette, John Malkovich

plot : After a series of paintings by an unknown artist are discovered, a supernatural force enacts revenge on those who have allowed their greed to get in the way of art.

Why do I want to see this ?
Since I really loved 'Nightcrawler', of course, I'm really eager to check Gilroy's latest directing effort once again starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo.

My verdict :
It turned to be something really ambitious, some rather weird mix of a satiric look on the Art business world with a surreal horror flick. Still, even though it was definitely some bold combination, I wasn’t completely blown away though. Indeed, I really liked to dive into this Art world which was quite fascinating and obnoxious at the same time thanks to a very strong cast but the horror stuff was never really interesting though. Basically, at best, it did feel like a ‘Twilight Zone’ episode but, at the end of the day, it was not so original after all and it was more like an average slasher flick. On top of that, it was also a distraction. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I still enjoyed the damned thing, it was especially really neat to see Jake Gyllenhaal nailing another performance.

1917 (2020)

Release date (U.S.) : 25 December 2019

directed by : Sam Mendes

with : Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong, Richard Madden, Colin Firth

plot : Two young British privates during the First World War are given an impossible mission: deliver a message deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldier's brothers, from walking straight into a deadly trap.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, when I first heard about this movie, I can't say I was really eager to check it out. However, since Sam Mendes is definitely a solid director and, above all, since it had received some really solid reviews , it did start to intrigue me. Eventually, what really sealed the deal for me was the fact that the damned thing was apparently shot and edited to appear as a single long take which suddenly made the whole thing really looking awesome.

My verdict :
Like many other heralded movies released in 2019, even if I really liked the damned thing, it didn’t really blow me away though. The point was that, sure, it was indeed visually and technically impressive. However, even though the story was decent enough, to be honest, it was nothing really original or amazing. At least, the plot wasn’t as ridiculous as it was in ‘Saving Private Ryan’ (a movie with an amazing intro but otherwise seriously overrated). Indeed, everything happening was fairly realistic but, again, there was nothing really ground-breaking about these 2 soldiers involved in some seemingly impossible mission to bring a crucial message. Furthermore, pretty much like Christopher Nolan with ‘Dunkirk’, Sam Mendes chose a realistic approach regarding his characters but, while this approach definitely has its merits, it also has its downside. I mean, on one hand, you really feel that you are dealing with some average soldiers, that they could be anyone, the boy-next-door, yourself, your brother,… However, on the other hand, you do end up with some ‘average’ characters who were barely charismatic and who didn’t have any real distinctive features or personalities. Still, there is no doubt that the visuals by Roger Deakins (easily one of the best cinematographers at work nowadays) were just so impressive and it is possible that I would have enjoyed this movie more if I had seen it on the silver screen and not at home.

Release date (U.S.) : 6 December 2019

directed by : Noah Baumbach

with : Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda

plot : An incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up and a family staying together.

Why do I want to see this ?
The first reason why I did add this movie to this list was the fact that it will be directly available on Netflix. However, the main reason I decided to add to this movie to this list was because I kept hearing some really good buzz about it. Indeed, apparently, it might turn out to be Noah Baumbach's magnum opus and since I have seen and enjoyed most of his movies, I will definitely check this one out as well.

My verdict :
Basically, it was some kind of modern version of ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ but while this fairly outdated movie only scratched the surface of this topic, this movie however went so deep, giving such a thoughtful and well balanced analysis on the subject. Above all, the biggest strength of this movie was to properly developed both sides of the equation displaying how devastating the whole process can be. I mean, it did make sense that Nicole wanted to get back to Los Angeles but it did make just as much sense that Charlie wanted to keep his whole family in New York. This movie also provides the best explanation on why most relationships are actually pretty much doomed to fail nowadays. Indeed, basically, the main reason why Nicole and Charlie eventually got a divorce was because they both wanted it all. Indeed, to make it work, one of them should have been able to sacrifice their own wish, Nicole could have stayed in New York or Charlie could have dropped his work and go to live in Los Angeles but neither of them wanted to let it go. But to have it all is just a massive pipe dream which crushes so many couple like the one displayed here. And, yet, this amazing movie shows how messy we are but also that our messy nature makes us, human beings, actually quite fascinating to behold.

Release date (U.S.) : 18 October 2019

directed by : Steven Soderbergh

with : Gary Oldman, Meryl Streep, David Schwimmer, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alex Pettyfer, Antonio Banderas, James Cromwell, Robert Patrick, Jeffrey Wright, Will Forte

plot : Follows a group of journalists who take part in unearthing 11.5 million files, linking the world's most powerful political figures to secret banking accounts to avoid taxes.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, by now, I'm actually pretty much done with Soderbergh. Not that it has become such a bad director but the guy has made too many movies with some decent concept which turned out to be rather half-baked after all. Eventually, the main reason I did add this movie to this list was the fact that this movie will be directly available on Netflix. And I have to admit that the fact that Soderbergh still has a pretty cool legacy might be another reason as well. At least, the cast and the story look really neat so I'm slightly more enthusiast for this movie than for 'High Flying Bird' (see underneath).

My verdict :
Like anyone else, I heard about the Panama papers but, to be honest, I didn’t really dig too much in this affair so, only for that, it was pretty neat to see a movie dealing with this subject. On top of that, Soderbergh chose a rather light and slightly wild approach and while you might argue that such a tragedy deserved a more serious treatment, it did make the whole thing easier to swallow. The intro was also pretty neat. Indeed, of course, it made sense that, at some point, we switched from trading to coins and paper money. However, nowadays, most money transactions have turned into an invisible financial flow and this constant virtualisation of money in general has turned the current financial system into a completely unreliable mess. Still, in spite of some really strong material, the damned thing was still too random though and some of the small stories involved were not always really compelling. Anyway, even if it was still another slightly half-baked project from Soderbergh, it was a decent watch.

Release date (U.S.) : 13 March 2019

directed by : J.C. Chandor

with : Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal, Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund

plot : Five former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.

Why do I want to see this ?
Since I enjoyed all the movies directed by J.C. Chandor, I'm quite eager to check his latest directing effort, especially since there is such a neat cast involved. Another reason I did add this movie to this list was the fact that it will be directly available on Netflix.

My verdict :
Well, unfortunately, even though it was a decent watch, I’m afraid it still turned out to be J.C. Chandor's weakest movie so far. The biggest issue I had was that, even though I have to admit that I didn’t know anything about the plot before watching this flick, the damned thing still turned out to be so generic. I mean, by now, the whole concept of a team of a special forces operatives planning a heist has been done many times before and this movie didn’t provide anything really new to the genre. At least, Chandor ‘s directing was once again really solid, the whole thing looked really convincing and there was such a really neat cast involved. Another thing that I did appreciate about his group was that there was no backstabbing involved. Eventually, even though their characters were actually barely developed, they all made the most of it and, with a slightly more original story, it could have been actually pretty damned amazing.

Ad Astra (2019)

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.

Yesterday (2019)

Release date (U.S.) : 13 September 2019

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : Lili James

plot : A struggling musician realizes he's the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I'm not exactly a huge fan of Richard Curtis romantic-comedies but Danny Boyle had always been a fascinating director and, once again, he is going to tackle something completely different so I'm really curious about the end-result.

My verdict :
Unfortunately, I was surprised by how little I actually did care about the damned thing after all and I don’t really get why it had been relatively well received when it was released. First of all, I find rather doubtful, if the Beatles would come up with their songs nowadays, that they would be so successful but it probably had to do with the fact that I’m not a huge fan of their work. However, the biggest issue was the fact that the whole thing was just so damned generic and predictable. Anyway, even if I have seen worse, I still think it was, so far, Danny Boyle’s most disappointing directing effort but I guess it is still worth a look.

Release date (U.S.) : 8 February 2019

directed by : Steven Soderbergh

with : André Holland, Zazie Beetz

plot : A sports agent pitches a rookie basketball client on an intriguing and controversial business opportunity during a lockout.

Why do I want to see this ?
Eventually, the only real reason I did add this movie to this list was the fact that this movie will be directly available on Netflix (see also 'The Laundromat' above).

My verdict :
First of all, Steven Soderbergh has a talent to find some very interesting subjects for his movies and this one was not an exception. Furthermore, he usually get some strong actors and André Holland delivered here another solid performance. I was also impressed by Zazie Beetz who, after seeing her in only 2 movies, is already shaping to become one of the most interesting actresses in the business. However, her character was actually a good example about what was wrong or, at leat, what was missing with this movie. I mean, Beetz was fine but, even though they tried to convince the viewers that this woman was super competent and talented, the only memorable thing she actually did during the whole thing was sleeping with their star basketball player. And, indeed, eventually, none of the characters, even the main character, was actually developed, in fact, even the whole thing actually felt rather half-baked. Still, it was a very interesting and seemingly realistic look on the business behind professional top sports and, at least, Soderbergh managed to focus on his subject until the very end (not like in ‘Unsane’ for example).

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 least 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.

My verdict :
Eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. The biggest issue was that the original animated movie was really short so, obviously, they had to expand it somehow. Unfortunately, even if it could have been an opportunity to come up with something new and interesting, they basically kept repeating the same thing over and over again. Furthermore, I didn't mind that they focused this time around on the human characters but they were all rather boring. For example, it was pretty neat to see Michael Keaton working again with Burton and he obviously had some fun but his character was just rather tedious. Finally, even though they needed to expand it, a running time of 110 mins was just way too long for such a simple tale.

Tenet (2020)

Release date (U.S.) : 17 July 2020

directed by : Christopher Nolan

with : Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Pattinson, John David Washington, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine

plot : The plot is currently unknown. The project is described as an action epic revolving around the world of international espionage.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though we don't know anything yet about this movie, a new directing project from Christopher Nolan is always something to get massively excited about and it automatically becomes my top priority for this year.

My verdict :
Because of the Coronavirus, even though the movie was completed, it kept getting postponed increasing my expectations in the process but also for everyone else. Well, I wish I could say it was worth the wait, as it is usually the case with this director. Unfortunately, I'm afraid Nolan has delivered the first misfire in an otherwise pretty much flawless career so far. The saddest thing is that it was, according to Nolan, his most ambitious movie so far. Anyway, what went wrong? Well, for me, it felt like they gave permission to David Lunch to direct a blockbuster with a 200 million dollar budget. The difference would be that Lynch would probably deliver something just as weird, bonkers and nonsensical as Nolan did but, at least, it would be on purpose. Anyway, was it really some complete garbage? Of course, not. The time passed by very quickly, the soundtrack was badass, it was visually still impressive and it felt good to go back to the movie theatre after almost 6 months but there is no doubt that the damned thing was seriously disappointing.

plot : Follows screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz's tumultuous development of Orson Welles' iconic 1941 movie Citizen Kane.

Why do I want to see this ?
At last... After 6 long years, David Fincher is finally coming up with a new directing effort and, of course, it had to be a major priority on this list. To be honest, the story doesn't sound really fascinating but, on the other hand, we are talking about the guy who managed to deliver a spellbinding thriller about Facebook. Anyway, Fincher is easily one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays so anything coming from this guy is pretty much a must-see in my book.

Soul (2020)

plot : A musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back with the help of an infant soul learning about herself.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, even though I used to be a die-hard of Pixar (I even saw 'Toy Story' in the movie theater when it was released), I kinda lost faith with them after they focused so much on releasing (underwhelming) sequels lately. However, this movie will finally be about an original story and the concept sounds pretty awesome so I'm pretty excited about this movie.

directed by : Paul Thomas Anderson

with : Bradley Cooper

plot : Set in 1970s San Fernando Valley, the film follows a high school student, who is also a successful child actor.

To be honest, it has been a while since Paul Thomas Anderson really blew away. In fact, the last time was with 'There Will Be Blood' so that was definitely some time ago. However, even if his follow directing efforts were not really amazing, they were always interesting and the guy remains one of the best US directors at work nowadays. With this in mind, I will once again definitely check his last movie, even if I don't know much about it right now.
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 : Paul Verhoeven

with : Virginie Efira, Charlotte Rampling, Lambert Wilson, Clotilde Courau

plot : A 17th-century nun in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion, and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic love affair.

Why do I want to see this ?
Following his critical success with 'Elle', it seems that Paul Verhoeven will keep making movies in France for the time being. Well, it really sounds like a very good story and it could be some perfect material for the Dutch director. However, during the last 20 years, Verhoeven has been struggling to get his projects made, in spite of its solid reputation, and I'm afraid this movie might be cancelled at some point.

Dune (2020)

Release date (U.S.) : 18 December 2020

directed by : Denis Villeneuve

with : Timothée Chalamet, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling

plot : Feature adaptation of Frank Herbert's science fiction novel, about the son of a noble family entrusted with the protection of the most valuable asset and most vital element in the galaxy.

Why do I want to see this ?
Well, after Alejandro Jodorowsky and David Lynch, Denis Villeneuve will now try to adapt this monument of SF literature. To be honest, even though it does sound amazing on paper, I still have some doubts. I mean, it's already Villeneuve's 3rd SF feature in a row and, in my opinion, 'Arrival' was actually rather overrated (I mean, 4 years later, does anyone still speaks about this movie?). Even more problematic was the fact that 'Blade Runner 2049', while critically heralded, was a flop a the box-office. Back then, Villeneuve admitted that his approach (shooting an indie feature with a blockbuster budget) had probably backfired but what was then his next move? To direct an even bigger science-fiction flick based on a really tricky novel! Seriously, it does sound risky to me. Anyway, I hope for him it does work this around though.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2020

directed by : Wes Anderson

with : Elisabeth Moss, Timothée Chalamet, Christoph Waltz, Saoirse Ronan, Léa Seydoux, Kate Winslet, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Benicio Del Toro, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Rupert Friend, Frances McDormand

plot : unknown

Why do I want to see this ?
By now, I have seen all the movies directed by Wes Anderson and he is one of the few American directors at work nowadays with a very specific style. On top of that, I very much enjoyed all his recent movies so there is no doubt I will check this one out, especially with such a star-studded cast.

The Last Duel (2021)
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Adam Driver

plot : King Charles VI declares that Knight Jean de Carrouges settle his dispute with his squire by challenging him to a duel.

Why do I want to see this ?
Ridley Scott did it again... Every time I think I'm done with this director, he comes up with something new which sounds so awesome on paper that I just have to watch it so bad. Seriously, to have Matt Damon and Ben Affleck finally acting together sounds really neat and, on top of that, they will also wrote the damned thing so I'm just so intrigued in this project and, yet, with this director, there is a fair chance that it won't be anything amazing after all.
Release date (U.S.) : ???

directed by : Adam McKay

with : Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothée Chalamet, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Matthew Perry, Ariana Grande

plot : A pair of astronomers try to warn everyone on Earth that a giant meteorite will destroy the planet in six months.

Why do I want to see this ?
I thought that 'Vice' and 'The Big Short' were decent enough but, to be honest, I wasn't really impressed though. However, I have to admit that they were still some decent directing efforts from McKay. Above all, there is such a stellar cast involved in his next project and since it would be released on Netflix, I will definitely check it out.

Release date (U.S.) : 18 December 2020

directed by : Steven Spielberg

with : Ansel Elgort

plot : An adaptation of the 1957 musical, West Side Story explores forbidden love, and the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I don't really see the point of remaking this classic and I don't really care much about this project but, as a tradition, I always put Spielberg's movies on this list so I guess I will probably check this one out at some point.

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

directed by : James Mangold

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.
