Crewmannumber6: Marquis de Sod: None of those look even vaguely interesting

This. Although David Fincher, Christopher Nolan and the Wachowskis are on the list, and their movies are always at least interesting.


Fark.com, never change.

blackminded: Your mature, rational explanation and sense of perspective have no place here.


I apologize.  I'll be less reasonable and adult, more about absolute right or wrong, and all about "winning" an argument.  More name-calling...

2001 definitely isn't a traditional story - it's contemplative and, yes, over long.  It's basically a two hour and 40 minute treatise on the nature of man, our evolution, and our tools/technology like some sort of philosophy paper.  From 1) The Dawn of man where the bones first used as weapons, then, 2) TMA-1,  the marvel of technology and how far we've come; 3) Jupiter Mission pushes that even further with artificial intelligence/HAL; 4) The infinite shows us as super-evolved (star-child who we later find out sort-of fused with HAL), though still not as far as the alien/machine that triggers each evolution.

Not a fun movie, certainly.  I could never watch it casually or often, like like some of my favorites.  But then, there are people who didn't like Pacific Rim - those ahole Nazi's somehow don't like a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters, plus Stringer Bell.  Stupid morans should just go back to Russia (did I do that right?)

Imaginativescreenname: I am very excited to know that there are 40 movies I will be deliberately avoiding this year. Crap remakes, half-baked adaptations and "original" movies that follow the same, banal plots recycled time and again.
When hollywood starts getting inventive, THEN i'll care. Until then, they can suck their own celluloid.


I wish I was as cool as you.

35. "Mr. Peabody and Sherman"

Somebody needs to tell Dreamworks to cut the number of movies they make in half.  The Rocky & Bullwinkle nostalgia porn movie was rancid; what makes them think this one will be any better?   And they have a bad track record with voice actors (I don't think Colbert will stink up the joint, but they've had way too many Shark Tale-esque stinkers).

28. "How to Train Your Dragon 2"

I was very pleasantly surprised by the first one.  This is what happens when that studio gets it right; I just wish there were more of these and fewer Road to El Dorados.

25. "Transformers: Age of Extinction"

Someone take Michael Bay behind the woodshed and put him out of our misery.

23. "The LEGO Movie"

Looks very promising, and this might be one of those very few movies where they can pull off using a stable of A-list actors for voice work.

22. "Godzilla"

Honestly, I'd rather have more movies in the Pacific Rim universe.  That's the first time since Iron Giant I've gotten excited about a giant robot/monster flick.

15. "22 Jump Street"

Someone remind me to set up a VPN to relentlessly torrent and then immediately delete this over and over, out of spite.

14. "Monuments Men"

I'm getting an Ocean's Eleven meets Kelly's Heroes vibe.  This could either be amazing or cringe-worthy.


/And any movie that's described as "a classier version of The Lawnmower Man" is asking to be the Ishtar of our generation.

Ooba Tooba: Seen the preview for Godzilla while at the Hobbit movie this past weekend. That looks pretty damn awesome.


I remember the trailer for the last Godzilla movie looking damn good as well.

Part of me really wants to go see The Fault in Our Stars because, hey, John Green needs to eat, but I need to sucker someone to join me in what is essentially going to be Feels: The Movie.
