The Lego Movie
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Interstellar
Noah
300: Rise of an Empire
The Sweet Blood of Jesus
Jupiter Ascending

Fingers crossed that Peter Jackson doesn't completely bungle There and Back Again but it's probably too late for that...

The Voices sounds like a pretty dark comedy.

Ryan Reynolds and psychotic talking cat are quite indeed a combination. :)

Another two films I forgot to add are The Fault in Our Stars and Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars.

The trailer for the new film from the director of Animal Kingdom looks pretty cool.
"The Rover"

Probably the new X-Men film. My prediction is that Robocop will do okay business and critic will eat it alive. I still don't like the idea of having Mockingjay split into two films. The only reason harry potter got any with it is because the screenwriter Steve Kloves found himself fearing a revolt against the harry potter fans if he didn't include everything.

Well, thanks to that decision, it's now the norm :| ; we got 2 movies out of "Breaking Dawn," we're getting 2 movies out of "Mockingjay," we're getting 3 movies out of "The Hobbit" (though I'm definitely not complaining about that one :ugeek: ).

Outside of The Grand Budapest Hotel, these are the two films I'm probably looking forward to the most here in the first half of 2014:

The first, Enemy, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Denis Villenueve (of Incendies and Prisoners fame).

Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VftzJYNfgxw

And here's the excellent poster:

The second, Under The Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Jonathan Glazer (his first film since 2004's Birth).

Here's the incredibly vague and mysterious teaser trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g88jv3o9uFY

Brick Mansions now has an official release date, and the trailer makes it look insanely awesome.

Well, that's just your opinion. Not EVERYONE thinks Brick Mansions looks "insanely awesome." I, for one, think it looks aggressively mediocre.

Well I love big dumb action movies so Brick Mansion looks right up my alley.

Of course I like serious cinema as well as although I didn't care much for his last, PTA usually delivers. I give him a pass since every filmmaker, even great ones, are entitled to a dud or two and his other movies are so awesome. Magnolia still being my favorite of his.

You missed an emoticon, I think, but otherwise pretty uncanny.

We need to keep a counter at how many times Vexer has missed the point. If he makes it to 1000 we can throw a fancy box social!

To be fair, I also missed what you guys were doing too until now. Vexer does seem to do that himself quite a bit. But only now did I get that.

I might even be guilty of doing myself from time to time. When I disagree with anybody I try to do it in a way that doesn't come off as obnoxious but inevitably it's bound to happen. Probably everybody does it from time to time without meaning too.
