Release date (U.S.) : 23 March 2018

directed by : Wes Anderson

with : Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray

plot : A stop-motion film about dogs.

Why do I want to see this ?
By now, I have seen all the movies directed by Wes Anderson and, even though it took me a while to really love his work, his recent movies really impressed me. On to of that, 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' was by far his best movie so I will definitely check his new stop-motion feature.

My verdict :
And, indeed, I wasn't disappointed and I just really loved the damned thing. First of all, it was such a well made animated feature and the amount of neat details displayed on each screen was just impressive. Furthermore, it was just a really fun adventure with some hilarious dialogue with the typical dry humor we are used to get with West Anderson. On top of that, there was also some room for some more sensitive moments but these scenes never clashed with the rest of the movie. The only critic I could find was that the 'human' characters could have been more developed and the dogs, who were all pretty awesome, were not much developed either because there were so many of them but it wasn't a big deal. Eventually, Wes Anderson displayed once again that he is easily one of the most interesting American directors at work nowadays and I will definitely watch his next director effort.

Release date (U.S.) : 23 February 2018

directed by : Alex Garland

with : Oscar Isaac, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh

plot : A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don't apply.

Why do I want to see this ?
'Ex Machina' was a huge critical success and one of the best directing debuts I have seen in many years so I'm really eager to see what Alex Garland will deliver this time around.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, even though it turned out to be pretty good, I can't say I was really blown away though. The big difference with 'Ex-Machina' was it was one of the most original science-fiction features I have seen in a very long time but this movie was however nothing really original. Indeed, this concept has been so many times before, even recently with 'Arrival' and Garland didn't provide anything really new about the genre. Furthermore, I didn't really get the motivations of the characters. I mean, did it really make sense to keep on going like this? The best explanation they could give was that they were all damaged goods but it was rather weak. Anyway, the whole thing still worked for me thanks to a very nice the mood. Indeed, it was visually really neat and the cast, especially Jennifer Jason Leigh, delivered some solid performances.

Release date (U.S.) : 23 February 2018

directed by : Duncan Jones

with : Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd

plot : A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

Why do I want to see this ?
Duncan Jones has always been an interesting director and, apparently, this movie will take place in the same world as 'Moon', his great directing debut, so I'm pretty excited about this one. Finally, it will be available on Netflix as well so I will pretty much watch it as soon as they release it.

My verdict :
Unfortunately, I was amazed by how the underwhelming the damned thing turned out to be. Indeed, while 'Moon' was pretty much a flawless minimalistic science-fiction masterpiece, this movie was actually the opposite as it was seriously over ambitious and filled up with some poorly developed characters and a rather half-baked story. Eventually, what bothered me the most were all these countless and pointless scenes. Finally, it wasn't a strong story but I don't feel like going into details explaining why.

Widows (2018)



Release date (U.S.) : 16 November 2018

directed by : Steve McQueen

with : Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Kaluuya, Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Colin Farrell, Michelle Rodriguez, Viola Davis, Lukas Haas

plot : Set in contemporary Chicago, amidst a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.

Why do I want to see this ?
Since I loved all the movies directed by Steve McQueen so far, of course, I'm seriously eager to see what he will do next. On top of that, the cast involved is really neat so it could turn out to be again pretty amazing.

My verdict :
Well, to be honest, I have to admit that it was actually slightly disappointing. I mean, sure, McQueen has delivered here a solid and original heist movie but it wasn't really much more than that and even if it was not bad at all, it was still his least interesting movie so far. On the positive side, he had a really strong cast at his disposal and all the actors involved have delivered some strong performances, especially Viola Davis who remains one of the best actresses at work nowadays. Eventually, what I was missing or what I was hoping for, was that McQueen would try somehow to subvert the genre but even though there was a nice grittiness, it still felt safe and it was just too faithful to the genre to become anything really amazing so it felt like like a missed opportunity.

Release date (U.S.) : 10 October 2018

directed by : Paul Greengrass

with : a bunch of unknown Norwegian actors

plot : It will focus on the 2011 terrorist attack in Norway, where 77 people were killed by a right-wing terrorist.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I always thought that the Bourne installments directed by this guy were rather overrated and the last installment 'Jason Bourne' turned out to be even more disappointing. On the other hand, his realistic historical thrillers ('Captain Phillips', 'United 93', 'Bloody Sunday') were just so spellbinding to behold so, even though this movie sounds like it's going to be a tough watch, I will definitely check it out.

My verdict :
Well, the tricky thing with this movie is that it was released only a few months after the amazing ‘Utøya 22. Juli’ which was also dealing with the same tragedy in Utoya and there is a fair chance that I would have enjoyed more Greengrass’s version if I had not seen just before another stellar movie about the subject. At least, it was pretty neat that they chose a really different approach and, as a result, it is actually worthwhile to watch both movies. In this case, the scope was much larger and covered much more ground, like the preparation of the attacks and also the aftermath, but, unfortunately, it also made the whole thing rather unfocused and sometimes slightly frustrating. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it was still such a powerful story.

Release date (U.S.) : 16 November 2018

directed by : Ethan Coen and Joel Coen

with : James Franco, Liam Neeson, Brendan Gleeson, Tom Waits, Tim Blake Nelson

plot : An anthology western following six different storylines centering on a man named Buster Scruggs.

Why do I want to see this ?
It was actually supposed to be a mini-series but they eventually changed it to an anthology but, anyway, who cares? Indeed, anything from the Coen brothers is always worth a look, even if their previous Western, 'True Grit', was decent at best but nothing really amazing in my opinion. Furthermore, it will be also available on Netflix which might make the hardcore film lovers angry but, since I have a Netflix subcription, I'm glad I will be able to watch it right away on its release date in my living room.

My verdict :
Well, even if it won't go down as one of their best movies, I thought it was fairly enjoyable and, at least, it was a slight improvement on 'Hail, Caesar!' which was, in my opinion, one of their weakest movies so far. First of all, even though some hard-core movie fans might prefer the good old celluloid, the digital photography displayed in this movie was beautiful and, in my opinion, it was the most gorgeous movie delivered by the Coen brothers so far. Concerning the little stories they gave us, to be honest, even though they were not bad, none of them really impressed me. The first one dealing with Buster Scruggs himself was by far the best one but all the others were going from just decent to actually almost weak. Eventually, the whole thing gave the feeling that the brothers couldn't come up with one really good story so they compiled a bunch of rather half-baked tales together.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2018

directed by : Alfonso Cuarón

plot : A story that chronicles a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s.

Why do I want to see this ?
Cuaron's last 2 movies ('Gravity' and 'Children of Men') turned out to be some huge critical hits and I can't wait to see what he will do next. It is also pretty neat that, this time around, he is coming up with something completely different. My only wish with this director would be that he was a little bit more productive as it would be only his 3rd movie in 13 long years.

My verdict :
Well, even though I did like it, to be honest, I can't say I was really blown away by the whole thing. Sure, after 'Cold War', it was another really gorgeous black-and-white feature and, as usual with Cuaron, the directing was just really strong. Indeed, it felt like using a travelling machine going back to Mexico almost 50 years ago. Unfortunately, I was never really grabbed by this tale. The whole thing was basically some kind of love letter to Cuaron's beloved nanny and while it was sweet and while it must have meant a lot to the Mexican master, I didn't care much for it, I'm afraid.

Release date (U.S.) : 21 September 2018

directed by : Jacques Audiard

with : Jake Gyllenhaal, John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix

plot : Based on Patrick DeWitt's novel, The Sisters Brothers revolves around the colourfully named gold prospector Hermann Kermit Warm, who's being pursued across 1000 miles of 1850s Oregon desert to San Francisco by the notorious assassins Eli and Charlie Sisters. Except Eli is having a personal crisis and beginning to doubt the longevity of his chosen career. And Hermann might have a better offer.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a big fan of Jacques Audiard who is easily one of the best French directors at work nowadays and I'm really curious to see what he will do with his first English-speaking feature and such a top US cast.

My verdict :
I wonder how Jacques Audiard ended up making a Western as his first English-speaking feature but what was even more surprising was that it turned out to be one of the best Westerns I have seen in years. Apparently, even though this movie had been very well received, it was still a flop at the box-office but, as far as I was concerned, I really loved the damned thing. The first thing that impressed me was that Audiard had managed to create such a convincing time and place. Then, there was such a top cast involved and they all delivered some solid performances. About the plot, I don’t think it really mattered since the whole thing was mostly about the mood and the characters involved. Above all, I just loved the interactions involving Charlie and Eli. Indeed, these characters and their relationship was fairly complex and sometimes actually quite hilarious.

Release date (U.S.) : 13 July 2018

directed by : Gus Van Sant

with : Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, Joaquin Phoenix, Jack Black

plot : About John Callahan who became a paralyzed after a car accident at age 21, and turned to drawing as a form of therapy.

Why do I want to see this ?
Following the massive critical failure of 'The Sea of Trees' (some called it the worst movie directed by Gus Van Santso far), it would be really interesting to see if the guy will redeem himself with this follow-up. On top of that, it sounds like a great story and the cast is just really neat.

My verdict :
After the huge critical failure of 'The Sea of Trees', Van Sant here made a nice come-back with and this flick was easily his best movie since 'Milk' released already 10 years ago. Still, even though it was indeed an entertaining biopic, it was still nothing really amazing, to be honest. I mean, even though Van Sant went for a chaotic and random structure, the whole thing was actually fairly generic and predictable after all, Still, I had never heard of John Callahan before watching this movie, the guy was really interesting and I really appreciate the fact that they kept displaying his work through the whole duration. Eventually, I think I enjoyed mostly the cast involved. Indeed, once again, Joaquin Phoenix completely nailed it and displayed again that he is easily one of the best actors of his generation. On top of that, the rest of the cast was also strong even if their characters were unfortunately barely developed.

Recently, I saw 'Juste la fin du monde', the whole thing just blew away and I can't wait to see what Xavier Dolan will do with this follow-up which will be his first English speaking feature, especially with such a top-cast involved.

plot : Birth and death are extraordinary experiences. Life is a fleeting pleasure.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have seen all the previous movies directed by Gaspar Noé and even though they were all difficult to digest, they were all really interesting to behold as well. On top of that, this movie was very well received at the last Cannes Film Festival so it sounds really intriguing so I will definitely check it out.

plot : An advertising executive jumps back and forth in time between 21st century London and 17th century La Mancha, where Don Quixote mistakes him for Sancho Panza.

Why do I want to see this ?
At last, after decades in production hell, it seems that Terry Gilliam has finally managed to finish this movie. 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? The damned thing might still become an amazing masterpiece after all.

Release date (U.S.) : 30 March 2018

directed by : Steven Spielberg

with : Simon Pegg

plot : When the creator of a popular video game system dies, a virtual contest is created to compete for his billions. A contest users are willing to kill to win.

Why do I want to see this ?
At least, this movie sounds much more promising than 'The BFG'. In fact, from the various movies Spielberg has been planning to do in the coming years, this one sounds like his most interesting project.

My verdict :
Well, to be honest, I have to admit that I was actually quite positively surprised and, as far as I’m concerned, it was Spielberg’s most enjoyable movie in years. Indeed, first of all, the damned thing was visually really impressive and I wish I actually saw it in the movie theater when it was released (at least, I did see it on Blu-ray). I was also surprised that most of the movie was actually CGI animated but, in this genre, it is easily one of the most satisfying movies I have seen so far. On the downside, it’s too bad the whole thing was too long though. Furthermore, even though the potential was pretty much limitless with this concept, they didn’t take much risks after all and, like pretty much everything else directed by Spielberg, it was too light-hearted and sentimental for my taste. Anyway, even though it was maybe not a masterpiece, it was still a really fun and gorgeous blockbuster.

Release date (U.S.) : 29 November 2018 (Denmark)

directed by : Lars von Trier

with : Matt Dillon, Riley Keough, Uma Thurman, Bruno Ganz

plot : The story follows Jack, a highly intelligent serial killer over the course of 12 years and depicts the murders that truly develop Jack as a serial killer.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of Lars von Trier's work but, by now, I have seen most of his movies and I have to admit that he is one of the most challenging directors at work nowadays. On top of that, to have this director making a movie about a serial killer sounds really awesome.

My verdict :
I was expecting something seriously hardcore, especially after the critics described it as being really violent, but, to be honest, I thought the violence was pretty mild. Not that I was disappointed, I mean, I have seen enough slasher flicks so I guess it was a relief that the Danish director didn't waste some of the running time with some torture scenes. Another very welcome surprise was that the damned thing was sometimes actually quite funny. I also enjoyed the fact that he pretty much dismantled the whole myth around serial killers. Indeed, even though Jack was supposed to be terribly smart, he constantly made some mistakes, left some huge clues, didn't care if there were some witness or not and he even admitted that he got luckyon various occasions. Eventually, the only issue I really had was that the running time was just too long. Indeed, the pacing for the 1st incident involving Uma Thurman was fine but everything else afterwards could and probably should have been handled somehow more quickly.

Release date (U.S.) : 23 March 2018

directed by : Steven Soderbergh

with : Claire Foy, Juno Temple, Amy Irving

plot : A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear--but is it real or a product of her delusion?

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, it has been a while since Steven Soderbergh has done anything really amazing but since 'Lucky Logan' was not bad, I will give him one last time the benefit of the doubt but, if this movie doesn't seriously blow me away, it might end up being the last Soderbergh production I had on this list.

My verdict :
Unfortunately, even though I did like this movie, as usual with Soderbergh's recent movies, it was still rather half-baked, I'm afraid. Basically, this time, he tried to mix a really interesting insurance scam with a rather boring stalking thriller. Seriously, everything involving this stalker was just rather tedious but, also, it didn't make much sense. In my opinion, they should have removed this part of the plot and focus more on the unstable state of mind of the main character. It would have worked so much better in combination with this frighteningly realistic insurance scam which displayed how completely rotten the health system has become in the US. Furthermore, I have to praise Claire Foy who delivered such a strong performance. Indeed, she was quite fascinating to be behold and she displayed something so completely different than what she delivered in 'The Crown' and I will definitely check her future work.

Release date (U.S.) : 16 February 2018

directed by : Nick Park

with : Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall

plot : Set at the dawn of time, when dinosaurs and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of how one plucky caveman unites his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day!

Why do I want to see this ?
I have seen all the movies directed by Nick Park and he is a great visionary in my opinion. I can't wait to see him finally releasing a new full length feature more than a decade after 'The Curse of the Were-Rabbit'.

My verdict :
First of all, after 20 years of being the king of clay-motion, Nick Park still didn't lose his touch and the animation was again seriously impressive. Concerning the story, to be honest, it was nothing really groundbreaking but it was still entertaining enough. The main issue I had was that they barely dealt with the clash between the stone age and the bronze age. Unfortunately, instead, they focused on some football game which was probably easier to swallow for the young kids but, as a result, the whole thing became seriously generic and predictable. At least, it was pretty neat how they made fun of England which obviously came up with the game of football and, yet, this country has been completely inept at winning any major title for decades.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2018

directed by : Andrew Niccol

with : Clive Owen, Amanda Seyfried

plot : Set in a world without anonymity or crime, a detective meets a woman who threatens their security.

Why do I want to see this ?
I used to be a die-hard fan of Andrew Niccol but since his last 3 movies ('In Time', 'The Host', 'Good Kill') were all terribly disappointing, I'm not so enthusiast about this director anymore. Still, the plot sounds intriguing and he might make a massive come-back here. I doubt it though.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it was only a slight improvement on 'Good Kill', 'The Host' and 'In Time'. Basically, while the concept was fairly interesting and extremely relevant today, it was nothing really groundbreaking and it seemed that it missed something to become really fascinating. Above all, a bigger issue was the fact that the whole thing was in fact rather boring. I mean, Amanda Seyfried, who was quite charming as usual, had a nice mysterious character but the main character played by Clive Owen was just not complex enough and a total bore to watch. Seriously, they had to go for the old gimmick of the divorced detective grieving for his dead child?!? That was just some really lazy writing, just like the fact that, in this mix of science-fiction with a film noire, this detective had to have sex with this femme fatale at some point. At least, the 3rd act wasn't completely lame but it still turned out to be pretty weak after all.

plot : A 90-year-old horticulturist and WWII veteran is caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine through Michigan for a Mexican drug cartel.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, with such a story and such a director, this movie should have been higher on this list. The reason why it is on such a low spot is because 'The 15:17 to Paris' (see underneath) turned out to be so disappointing. As a result, I kind of lost my interest right now in Clint Eastwood's work which is such a shame after having followed his directing career for more than 20 years.

Release date (U.S.) : 9 February 2018

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.

My verdict :
After 'American Sniper' and 'Sully', Eastwood decided for the 3rd time in a row to tell another true tale about some other American heroes but, unfortunately, it turned out to be so terribly weak and not much better than the garbage you can see on the Lifetime channel. Then, the actual guys who were involved during these events actually played themselves which wasn't a bad idea and I don't think they did such a terribly bad job but the whole thing started to become rather abysmal at this point. Basically, they gave us a whole bunch of meaningless scenes with no entertaining or informative value and it seems, since the tragic event in the train would last only 15 mins, that they had to fill in the running time with something. The worst part was definitely when these guys went backpacking in Europe. Seriously, it felt like watching 'The Real World' from MTV or some other crappy reality TV program. At least, the scenes in the train did work but everything else was just so tedious and rather poorly put together.

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 it won't be released on the silver screen is rather sad in my opinion.

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...

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : Lili James, Ana de Armas

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.

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 ?

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.

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

directed by : Christopher Nolan

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.

2021

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 : 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 : 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.

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.
