My Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2014

The summer movie season is about to start this week with the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which didn’t make my list. It’s the blockbuster movie season, where studios put out big bucks in order to make an even bigger investment. Like every year, this is the season where we find a big mix of movies, ranging from comedies, to super hero movies, to monster movies, to disaster films, to action-packed thrill rides. Many will turn out to be absolute crap, but a few should blow our minds.

Veronica Mars Review

Kickstarted from cancelation, the Veronica Mars movie, had a lot riding on its shoulders. Not only did it have appease the show’s diehard fans and newcomers but also appease the over 90,000 backers, who, altogether chipped in a total of $5.7 million to fund the movie on Kickstarter. Creator and in this case writer and director, Rob Thomas, made a promise to fans, “We will deliver the Veronica Mars follow-up that you’ve always wanted,” and as a fan of the TV show, I think he and his team delivered on that promise.

The Wolf of Wall Street Review

In the film Wall Street, Gordon Gekko  says, “The point is ladies and gentleman that greed, for a lack of a better word, is good.” No one understands this quote than Jordan Belfort. A stockbroker, who in the 1980s and 90s gained his fortunes by selling penny stocks to wealthy, middle and working class investors. Unlike Wall Street, which showed you the character of Gordon Gekko through the eyes of Bud Fox; Director, Martin Scorsese, approaches The Wolf of Wall Street through the character of Jordan Belfort by having Belfort himself tell his story. The result is an abashed, exciting, disgusting, exhausting, eye-opening and entertaining film about a loathsome man and his friends.

My Most Anticipated Movies of 2013

Man of Steel

Directed by: Zack Snyder | Release Date: 14 June, 2013
As a DC fanboy, I am beyond excited for this movie. Ever since Green Lantern I get scared for movies based on DC comics. Marvel is finally hitting a stride with their movies and I want to see DC also succeed. Man of Steel brings together Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David Goyer. Snyder is a master of filming action, Goyer is a superb writer and Nolan is the master storyteller. On paper this seems like the perfect team. Also what a perfect cast right? Especially after seeing the 3rd trailer, it blew my mind. Seeing those visuals, hearing the score and watching Superman finally punch the shit out of people; Man is Steel looks to be a super hero blockbuster with heart.
