My 10 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2015

December 29, 2014 9 comments

If you have been a follower of this blog for a while, you know that I like movies.  I really like all kinds, but I focus primarily on action, sci fi and comic book movies.  At least when it comes to my favorites.

2015 promises to be a big movie year.  There are several I am looking forward to.  It’s hard to pinpoint which I want to watch the most, so I’ll list these somewhat chronologically.

Furious 7 is up first.  It’s the latest in The Fast and The Furious franchise.  The main reason I look forward to this one is because Andrew loves these films.  I would like them but they are something that he and I enjoy watching together.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is up next.  I’m a huge comic book movie geek.  I collected comic books all the way through college before finally giving it up.  These movies allow me to be that same kid that fell in love with comic books in 1973.  This movie is highly anticipated and the trailer looks great.

Mad Max: Fury Road comes out shortly after the Avengers.  I was a huge fan of Mel Gibson’s original run.  I haven’t read too much about how they update this, but I like the concept and I like Tom Hardy.

Tomorrowland is a bit of a mystery to me.  It is based, somewhat, on the area at Disneyland.  It is co-written and directed by Brad Bird who brought us The Incredibles.  What I have read about it seems fascinating, so I’ll give it a whirl.

Terminator Genisys continues the Terminator franchise.  Arnold will be making an appearance, so I have to check this one out.

Next up is Ant-Man.  Marvel did a great job bringing a group of obscure characters to the screen last year in Guardian of the Galaxy.  I have faith that they will take a tale about a guy who can shrink to the size of an ant and turn it into a gigantic success.

Spectre brings back James Bond in the fall.  I have loved James Bond movies for over 30 years now.  The last few have been among the best.

November will bring the final Hunger Games movie with Mockingjay -Part 2.  I haven’t seen part 1 yet, but I will soon and look to see them bring the story home with this one.

The grand poobah of geek movies will come out on December 18.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the first film under the Disney leadership.  J.J. Abrams is directing so, yeah, I’ve got my geek on over this one.

Finally, I am looking forward to Mission: Impossible 5.  Say what you want about Tom Cruise, he does a pretty good job with these films.

Not quite making the cut, but some that I will see in some form or fashion are: Kingsman: The Secret Service, Divergent: Insurgent, Paul Blart 2, The Fantastic Four (though I think this one may stink), The Man From UNCLE, and  London Has Fallen.

What movies are you looking forward to in 2015?

140 Words (or less) About My Return

September 1, 2011 Leave a comment

It’s Twitterific Thursday.  I’m writing 140 words or less about a subject.  Today it’s my return from hiatus.

I said I would return.  General MacArthur vowed to return to the Philipines.  He had left in defeat.  He returned in victory.  I met defeat here on my blog.  My goal is the same.

I’m back in the saddle again.  Out where a friend is a friend.  Boy, am I glad to be back.  I’m smiling like Gene.

My man, Arnold, said that he would be back in The Terminator.  Arnold was a killing machine.  I have returned to do the same thing.  Kill.  What?  Pride.  Greed.  Sin.  Whatever I’m failing at.

Elvis made a comeback in 1968.  I was born in 1968.  See the similarities?  Elvis really rocked it that night in that black leather.  I plan to rock it going forward, sans the leather.

However, don’t call it a comeback.  Momma said knock you out.
