What's On Your Radar For 2014?

1. Inherent Vice (Paul Thomas Anderson)
2. Foxcatcher (Bennett Miller)
3. Gone Girl (David Fincher)
4. Boyhood (Richard Linklater)
5. Snowpiercer (Bong Joon-ho)
6. The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson)
7. Mr. Turner (Mike Leigh)
8. How to Catch a Monster (Ryan Gosling)
9. Fury (David Ayer)
10. The Equalizer (Antoine Fuqua)

At first glance, it looks like it might be a bit of a slow year. I'm sure there are plenty of films we haven't even heard of yet that will be great though.

Bourne, I totally forgot about Gosling's directorial debut. It sounds...interesting. I do have high hopes on it and cant wait for the trailer.

And Hucksta, good call on Sin City 2. It seems like we have been waiting FOREVER for that film. I'll add to my top ten.

Another film I think sounds good is called Mojave. Directed by William Monahan (who wrote The Departed).
A suicidal artist goes into the desert, where he finds his doppelgänger, a homicidal drifter.
Stars Garrett Hedlund, Oscar Issacs and Walton Goggins. Could be really good

So far, just:

"The Grand Budapest Hotel"
"Noah"
"Interstellar"
"Mr. Turner"
"Inherent Vice"
"The Hobbit: There and Back Again"

Maybe "Transcendence" as well.

I was really impressed with the direction in Prisoners. I'll see anything by Denis Villeneuve.

His next film is Enemy which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and sounds intriguing .

A man seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie.

Inherent Vice, Inherent Vice, Inherent Vice, Inherent Vice, Inherent Vice, and Inherent Vice. Nothing else will be as good.

The Raid 2: Berandal will of course be bad ass. The first one was one of my favorite movies of the past 20 years. From the trailer I saw this one looks even more bat shit crazy and intense. I can't wait.

Most everything else looks blah and more blah. Yeah another Fincher thriller. Will be better than your average fare but I am not expecting exceptional. Oh goody, we get another Christopher Nolan snooze fest too. Again, probably better than average fare but not by much.

David Ayer's Fury and Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer got potential and will almost certainly be the best American action movies of the year. But I don't think either one of these guys have another Training Day in them. From the looks of things Ayer's got the best shot of the two. His recent films have been very solid. Makes sense since he is the writer, the one with the most talent. I expect Fuqua to continue to make solid R rated action flicks but don't anticipate anything exceptional from him again.

But hey, at least big budget R rated shit is still getting made.

Apparently Cyber is coming out in 2015. Otherwise, it'd be on my list as well.

Got to edit my list to take out Fast & Furious 7 and add in Veronica Mars. Especially since the trailer actually looks really good.

It's only pretentious if you take it seriously, and you'll only take it seriously if you're not aware of Roy Andersson's movies.

Well, I'll admit I'm not aware of Andersson's films, but it's kind of pretentious no matter which way you slice it, no matter what the intention. The title of the film is always a big deal because it helps to draw you towards seeing it or steers you away. Trying recommending this one to a friend in the future. I just really can't see anyone actually saying, " Have you seen A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting Existence yet?" It sounds like a more appropriate title for a novel than a film. It's just clunky and snobby sounding when you say it aloud.

It really depends on which friend you're talking to. I'd never talk about this movie to a friend who thinks Avatar is an example of a great movie, but someone who tells me they love quirky intelligent comedies and like arthouse cinema I'd be able to talk about Andersson movies. And long titles are usually shortened when speaking about them to friends. If you'd recommend Dr. Strangelove to someone would you say "Hey so I just saw Dr. Strangelove or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Bomb and it was pretty good" or do you just say "Dr. Strangelove"?

Anyways, if you're into quirky comedies and like arthouse movies then I'd recommend checking out Andersson's movies. Don't judge movies by their titles

Anyone else excited for Iñárritu's latest, Birdman? Seems like a drastic change of pace for him (it's a comedy) and it has a great cast: Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough...

Big fan of Iñárritu. Can't wait for it. Really curious how this will turn out seeing as how all of his films are without humor.

I'll hold off on the judgement of the film itself, but at least Dr. Strangelove sounds intriguing and you can tell there's an angle of political satire with the "love the bomb" part. If I thought for one second that this movie would have an actual pidgeon sitting on a branch getting all philosophical, then I might actually want to see it based on the title, lol. However, the impression I got from the title was that the film would be either a comedy or drama, or both, that utilized the title as a metaphor while human characters banter back and forth about this or that. Also, what would they shorten it to? I'm thinking "A Pidgeon Reflects On Existence" because "A Pidgeon Sat On A Branch" doesn't sound nearly as appealing.

That's probably the one I'd wanna stick in somewhere but my list is done and I've said my peace. Excited to see Birdman, but not sure if it's Inarritu or Emma Stone that's got me more excited to see it.
