The list should be way longer and it took more than 45 minutes to filter, refine and revise it. In the end, I selected the nine movies that I will go to watch at the movie theather, no matter what. Flu? Alien invasion? Emma Watson at my place for dinner? Oh, wait. Maybe the latter could be a problem, but I can always bring her to the movies.
Besides the blockbuster sagas, lots of interesting movies are on the way to be distributed worldwide. Here it is a list of the nine movies I won’t miss for any reason. Relax, lay back, take popcorns, and enjoy!
The Theory of Everything
Stephen Hawking gave a huge contribution to science and, as the story of his difficult life tells, it was possible not only for his indisputable, limitless genius, but also for the woman that loves him and lives with him, which has been both his inspiration and his support. Release date: January 15th, 2015 (Netherlands).
The second feature film by Angelina Jolie tells the true, tormented, quintessential story of Louis Zamperini, an olympic runner who has been prisoner in the Japanese camps during the WW2. I’ve been impressed by Zamperini’s story for the capability of reacting to (extremely) hard moments in life, never giving up, facing the problems and solving them at any cost. This time, it seems that Mrs. Pitt did a great job. Release date: January 8th, 2015 (Netherlands).
Summer of Blood
What if you are a picky man, just dumped by the best woman in the world, trying to come back on track but unsuccessfully? Well, all you need is to meet a vampire. The rest is history. Release date: November 1st, 2015 (Netherlands).
Usually, I don’t like war movies, but once every ten year there’s a masterwork that is impossible to ignore. David Ayer’s film is fated, IMHO, to become one of them. Release date: October 23rd, 2014 (Netherlands).
Pride can both defeat prejudice and help people, like the gay activists in this movie, which help miners of a small village to keep on fighting during the 1984 strike. Release date: October 16th, 2014 (Netherlands).
I love playing drums but I’m not capable of doing it properly, even if I can manage to play djembé and cajon quietly well. Perhaps, all I need is a teacher like Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) or the talented willpower of Andrew (Miles Teller). Release date: November 13th, 2014 (Netherlands).
Not my kind of movie, but when I read about the fact that this is the first shot by William H. Macy as a director, I gave it a try and now I can’t wait to watch it. Release date: October 17th, 2014 (USA).
I really don’t have to say anything else but what the trailer already does. Just watch it and you’ll understand. Release date: January 25th, 2015 (Netherlands).
No, I didn’t forget about it. Served to you with the teaser trailer, the most inspirational one that I ever watched since December 12th, 1983. Thanks, Chris. Release date: November 6th, 2014 (Netherlands).
