The Winter of my Discontent : 2014

No strong feelings here, it's just that the last thing I'm in the mood for is another boxing movie (even if it's based on the life of a real person) - especially one starring William Forsythe, whom I've never cared for.

No budget, no script, no 'real' actors - no problem...target audience - those with no taste. Hey, it worked for Jersey Shore.

It's 'found footage', folks and it's the latest plague on the cinematic industry. Honestly I'd rather fight off a new, virulent strain of Black Death than sit through another one.

Her (2013)

Lonely man falls in love with machine...I think I'll pass. Joaquin's an alright actor, I suppose but this doesn't sound in the least bit interesting and what's with the porn star moustache anyway? Not even the dulcet tones of Scarlett Johanssen's voice can intrigue me enough to see this.

See the people in the above photo? See how much fun it looks like they're having? Now imagine watching this.

Regardless of the fact that this also stars Stellan Skarsgรฅrd and Willem Dafoe, Shia LaBeouf in a movie about a nympho...I'll pass.

What's even worse than 'found footage' movies? Wayans brothers spoofs. This is just one of the reasons that I hardly watch comedies anymore. The art is lost....

Cameron Diaz and Nicki Minaj in a comedy...hm, let's see...can I possibly find more interesting things to do? Watch paint dry? Check. Watch grass grow? Check. Attempt to carry on a meaningful conversation with someone in a coma? Check. Noticing a pattern here?

Neighbors (2014)

Seth Rogen. Zac Efron. Another stupid-ass, poor excuse for a comedy. Pass...

Blended (2014)
(see above three films and reasons)
Yes, this film does star Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris and the lovely Amanda Seyfried but it also stars Charlize Theron and Sarah Silverman, neither of whom I really care for, yet the deciding factors here for me are Seth MacFarlane, the fact that it's a comedy and the fact that it's a Seth MacFarlane comedy.

I really wanted to add a picture here that would perfectly illustrate blasphemy to the fullest extent, yet couldn't find one handy. Use your imagination, would ya?
People who added this item 453 Average listal rating (327 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.4
Seriously?!?! Wasn't the first one bad enough? They had to make another one?

Oh, yeah, they keep doing that with 'found footage' and Wayans spoof-comedies, too...and reality television programs...lame-ass movies starring Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller....Red Hot Chili Pepper CDs.......decaf coffee....

I'm not a fan of Wahlberg, even though he seems to be, at least, picking up on what it means to be an actor from those he works with...a little; maybe it's rubbing off or something. Anyway..

reasons to actually watch: Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammar, Sophia Myles

reasons NOT to watch: Mark Wahlberg, ...yet another Michael Bay Transformers movie

guess which way the scales are tipping. While I actually liked the first one of these and found the second decent, I'm bored with the whole thing.

You know, I've seen the original series of films. I even went so far as to watch the first remake...which starred Wahlberg, no less. I feel I've done enough...

Hmm, the Wachowski brothers...*ahem*...brother and sister, making a sci-fi starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis... Pass.
People who added this item 555 Average listal rating (406 ratings) 5.3 IMDB Rating 5.8
Okay, I do find Megan Fox attractive and the idea of William Fichtner playing Shredder sounds interesting but this is the Ninja Turtles and it's probably PG which means no freaky-deaky, full-on nude sex scenes between Megan Fox and a turtle man. Think I'll pass.

The Interview (2014)
Two Seth Rogen comedies in one year? C'mon, man.
And if that weren't enough, we're given two Paranormal flicks, too....
People who added this item 395 Average listal rating (253 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 5.6
Talk about a completely unnecessary sequel! You couldn't pay me enough money to sit through this.
People who added this item 1230 Average listal rating (824 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.5
I'm divided about this one and not sure if I'll watch it or not. I loved it's predecessor and thought it much better than the trilogy before it but Jamie Foxx as Electro? WTF?!?!

I do love me some Ridley Scott but 'Biblical' Bale I'm just not sure if I'm ready for. Besides, I've seen The Ten Commandments more than once; my quota should be full for some time.

If the title and content aren't enough to give it away, this is just a little list of the 2014 films that I have absolutely no intention whatsoever of seeing this year...or any year. Although if, for some reason, I actually do watch any of these then I'll make a list this time next year (like my friend VierasTalo) and add a few words of why and wherefore. Just for shits-n-giggles, you know? ;P
