8 Movies I Want to See Now

 
 

I am one of those people that never picks up on movie references because a) I can’t memorize every line of a movie after I see it once and b) I have never been much of a movie person. The combination of living down the street from an awesome movie theatre with plush, reclining seats and needing a hobby that doesn’t involve drinking has left me with a desire to see more movies. Alas, here is the short and sweet list of movies I’m actually excited for that will be released within the next few months.

 

WISH I WAS HERE, July 18


Zach Braff’s Kickstarter-funded emotional sequel to Garden State. His dad (former important person of Criminal Minds) is no longer rich. His family is going through stuff. There is a purple wig, a dog, and, as expected, a killer soundtrack.

 

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT, July 26

 

Emma Stone is some kind of fortune-telling English lady. Colin Firth is sent to prove she’s a loony-tune. They may or may not fall in love. Adorable outfits, British accents, and beautiful scenery. A great deal of potential for a cute romantic dram-edy.

 

ABOUT ALEX, August 8

 

Alex attempts suicide. His college friends reunite. Truth comes out. Jokes are told. Sex is had. For some reason, I’m drawing comparisons to St. Elmo’s Fire. Anyway, I love Aubrey Plaza and Max Greenfield plays an annoying-ish hipster/ dork. Enough said.

 

WHAT IF, August 8

 

Harry Potter and Adam from Girls team up to help us understand the complications of male/female friendships. Basically Daniel Radcliffe is “best friends” with Zoe Kazan and desperately wants to jump her bones and put a ring on; unfortunately for him, she’s with someone else. Kind of hoping this one has a sad ending and the besties don’t end up together.

 

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, September 19

 

A screen adaptation of one of my favorite books. Typically I am so nervous to watch movies based on books that I love as there’s a very high risk that all of my feelings and visions will be shattered by someone that doesn’t imagine the details the same as me. That being said, there is a stacked cast that includes Tina Fey (with long hair), Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, famous person, funny famous person, hot person, etc. Highlights: a cheating wife, a dead dad, fake boobs, a funny weed scene, and a laugh/cry fest that will have you missing your family.

 

THE EQUALIZER, September 26

 

Old Man and the Sea reference. Denzel Washington killing people in the name of justice. Mob stuff. I fully expect my boyfriend to take me on a date to see this film.

 

THE BOOK OF LIFE, October 17

 

3-D animated movie that incorporates Dia De Los Muertas, deception, and a love triangle into a family friendly film. The world created that you get a glimpse of around 1:30 gives me goosebumps. I may also be related to a couple people that work for Reel FX- the production company behind this cultural gem.

 

ST.VINCENT, October 24

 

Bill Murray is a crazy neighbor. Melissa McCarthy is not being type-cast as a psychotic, oversized woman. Naomi Watts is an orange, Russian stripper. Vincent (B.M.) takes Maggie (M.M.)’s son under his wing when he offers to babysit. I’m getting a Little Miss Sunshine type vibe and the kid reminds me of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

 

Hopefully these movies will be as good as their trailers.
