18 Films Soon to Be Released

Over at Woahdude, a list of 18 films being released between now and February, with capsule summaries.

A condensed version, with my assessment in orange.

  • Frozen – There’s a good chance that I’ll see this one in the theaters. It looks cute and smart.
  • The Hobbit –  This one’s a no-brainer. Tempted to go for the first midnight showing, but I’ll wait until the madness dies down.
  • Anchorman: The Legend ContinuesMeh.
  • Jack RyanProbably a Redbox special at some point if there’s nothing better.
  • 47 RoninLooks interesting. I enjoyed The Last Samurai, this will probably be on the same level. Redbox.
  • American HustleMeh.
  • The Secret Life of Walter MittyA possibility. I’ll be curious to see how they treat this story.
  • The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)In the name of all that’s holy, why?
  • NymphomaniacNot a chance in Hades. I’d like to see society extolling the virtues of faithfulness and stability rather than this kind of camel ejecta.
  • The Green InfernoThis looks like a gratuitous gore-fest
  • Paranormal Activity: The Marked OnesLooks silly
  • Mandela: Long Walk to FreedomThis will be watched at some point for certain, but probably not in the theaters.
  • The Monuments MenI had no desire to see “Inglourious Basterds,” and I have no desire to see this one either.
  • The Wolf of Wall StreetSeven thumbs down. We get too much of this kind of people in real life, I don’t need to see their lifestyle glorified on the big screen.
  • Grudge Matchthis one looks funny, and very meta: two aging boxers who can’t get a break any longer take each other one for the sake of exposure. I’ll probably catch this one in the theater when it comes to Water Gardens in Spanish Fork.
  • The Lego MovieNot much for me there. If I had grandkids close by, I’d consider taking them.
  • Robocop (2014)Looks like a great popcorn flick to lift my spirits when I’m down in the dumps. Redbox most likely.
  • PompeiiThis one makes me think of “Gladiator vs. Dante’s Peak.” Looks like a fun ride, if you don’t take the history too seriously.



That’s a lot of films coming up – I think Frozen and The Desolation of Smaug are my only real chances of catching this one in a first-run theater. As for the rest, I could miss them altogether and not lose any sleep over it.

The Old Wolf has spoken.

  1. When I saw the Lego Movie trailer (through animation sites) I laughed at the stupid asides that mostly adults would get. Lincoln saying “this is worse than a house divided?” What child would get that? Unfortunately. I don’t go to movies anymore. People are too rude.
