Spotlight: Five Movies I’m Looking Forward to in 2015

February 4, 2015 miscellaneous, movies 8

2015 is shaping up to be a great year when it comes to movies! Here are some of the movies I am most looking forward to this year:

Avengers: Age of Ultron

I’ve been waiting for this movie to finally come out for so long that I’m almost over it. Except I CAN’T WAIT OMG. Avengers is like one of my main obsessions and I got on the nerves of everyone I knew for AGES after I saw it. In fact, I probably still do. If you forgot to turn off your bluetooth and you find a “StarkPhone” or a “StarkBook” nearby, I’m probably close. Or someone stole my phone and my laptop, in which case please contact me.

Mockingjay Part II

Um… NO EXPLANATION NEEDED. I honestly feel like The Hunger Games movies are some of – if not THE – best book to movie adaptions I’ve ever watched. I loved loved LOVED the books when I read them a few years ago, but the movies really make everything come alive in a way that makes it even more horrible-amazing-aaargh (legit word when talking about The Hunger Games) to me. I vividly remember that I couldn’t stop thinking about the first book when I read it, and I wasn’t really fully present in any real life situation until I finished it (and probably for a couple of days after). My reaction wasn’t quite as strong when I read the sequels, but I still loved them. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised that the movies make me feel the other way around: I feel like they’re getting better and better!

Jupiter Ascending

I know basically nothing about this movie, but the trailer ran before The Hobbit, and it looked really badass. Plus it has Mila Kunis so I’m IN. It also features Channing Tatum, but him I can honestly take or leave. I don’t hate him, but I only really like him when he’s dancing, and I kind of doubt he’ll bring back the groove in this one.


It’s about hacking! It has Chris Hemsworth! I have ALL THE REASONS to watch this movie. The only problems I could see with this movie are a) the plot is too thin and b) they get their facts wrong. I’m hoping they’ll manage to avoid a, but they will almost certainly mess up their tech facts. I probably won’t care though, because even though I’m a sucker for plotlines that include hacking, I know jack about it, so there’s nothing to hinder my enjoyment of the film.

Star Wars VII

I was really surprised when I heard there’s another Star Wars film coming out. I wouldn’t describe myself as a die hard fan, but I’ve seen the movies and I’m DEFINITELY going to watch this one as well. I’m a bit worried it’s going to be one of those instances where it would have been better to let it rest, but for now I choose to believe they wouldn’t have made the movie if they didn’t have another good story to tell.

What movies are you looking forward to this year?

    I haven’t seen the first Avengers films yet and I am still yet to watch any of The Hunger Games series either. I am so bad at sitting down and watching films, I prefer TV shows. I do want to watch a lot of 2015 releases though so I’ll have to make more effort. I’ve not heard of that Chris Hemsworth one before, I’ll have to look it up – I like him!

      I get that – I love movies, but if I had to choose between movies and tv shows, I’d choose tv shows any day! When I’m watching on my laptop, I find it hard to watch ANYTHING from start to finish, especially movies. At the cinema it’s easy, but at home there’s constantly something that distracts me. I hope you enjoy these movies, if you do watch them. :)

    GAH, Mockingjay!! You seriously lost me at Mockingjay. Here’s a few things about it: It will premiere on my birthday (technically, the day after, BUT I will go to the night-before show, on my birthday). This is the universe’s way of telling me that this movie and I are soulmates.

    But it is going to destroy is, isn’t it? I don’t know if I am ready. And also… it will be over. What will we have to look forward to? I don’t know what I will do… Okay, I am going to a corner to sob now ;)

      BEST BIRTHDAY EVER. I love going to the cinema on my birthday, but it’s twice as cool with such a great movie to look forward to!

      Yes, I have a feeling it’s going to be an EPIC finale. Hands will be raised in three finger salutes, tears will be suppressed (I don’t like crying in public) and hearts will be broken. I can’t wait! :D
