The Other 10 Movies to Watch This Year!
When I said 'Other', it means that this list does not include some most-anticipated big movies like The Dark Knight Rises, Total Recall, The Expendables 2 or Django Unchained. These are 'other' movies that some people didn't realize about its existence so I just want to share about them.
Here it is:
1. Wreck-it Ralph (Animation, comedy)
An animation featuring real baddies/villains from the REAL gaming world. Just watch the trailer. It got Zangief & Bison (Street Fighter), Bowser (Mario Bros), Dr. Robonik (Sonic) and more! I think I saw Zelda too!
2. Gangster Squad (action, drama, thriller)
Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone... enough said.
3. Lawless (action, drama, thriller)
Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Gary Oldman... enough said.
4. Red Lights (supernatural-thriller, suspense)
It's been a while since I saw Cillian Murphy in a great movie (his appearance in 'In Time' & 'Retreat' sucks!). So I hope for this one to be really really good. Based on the trailer, this might get Cillian back on the track. It's a story of science vs. supernatural powers.
5. Premium Rush (action, thriller)
Joseph Gordon Levitt on the bicycle rush. Must be awesome.
6. Safety Not Guaranteed (drama, comedy, sci-fi maybe...)
Back in 2010, we got 'Monsters'. Last year, we have 'Another Earth'. This time, 'Safety Not Guaranteed' might be this year's surprise indie 'sci-fi', or a tale more than 'sci-fi'... Plus, Nick Miller (New Girl) is in this. The premise sounds interesting; a man advertised his offer to anyone who wants to accompany him to time travel back in the past.
7. A Fantastic Fear of Everything (thriller, comedy)
Simon Pegg (Paul, Hot Fuzz) in a tripping dark comedy. Looks fun.
8. Ted (comedy)
From the voice of Griffin (Family Guy), here comes Ted; a cute but foul-mouthed teddy bear. Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are here too.
9. Being Flynn (drama)
I dig this because of the director, Chris Weitz, who brought me the brilliant 'About a Boy'. Being Flynn stars Paul Dano & Robert De Niro. A story about a complicated father/son relationship.
10. Smashed (drama)
Mary Elizabeth-Winstead in another 500-Days-of-Summer/Blue Valentine type of flick. Can't get enough of her since Final Destination 3. Dammit!
