Here is the continuation of the Top 13 Movies that I am most excited for during the year. As stated previously, these are the movies that I am just excited to see and the ones that I will likely watch in theaters for certain.
At Number 6: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1
If you told me that Mockingjay: Part 1 was going to be one of my most anticipated films of 2014 a few months ago, I would say that you are crazy. However, considering how shockingly amazing Catching Fire turned out to be, I am pumped for the sequel!
At Number 5: The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Despite the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 appearing overly bloated with far too many villains, I have hope that director, Marc Web, will be able to balance the many characters effectively, because the last time we had three villains in a Spider-Man movie, it did not turn out so well. At worst, the movie will be a ton of web-slinging fun with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone being one of the best on screen couples in cinema today, and at best will have another Spider-Man film that matches the quality of Spider-Man 2.
At Number 4: Guardians of the Galaxy
The Guardians of the Galaxy is Disney/Marvel's biggest gamble to date. With director James Gunn at the helm, the film will either be an absurdly fun time at the theater that refines what a comic book superhero movie is, or it will be a cheesy fail that audience will not care to see. Hopefully, the movie will turn out amazing, and I cannot wait to see the trailer!
At Number 3: X-Men: Days of Future Past
Days of Future Past has been one of my most highly anticipated upcoming films since I heard the story was going to be adapted into a film. The film will bring together both the original group of X-Men alongside the First Class group of X-Men for a hopefully awesome movie. My biggest concern is that the film will be so packed with characters that none of them are developed beyond Wolverine, but if anyone can do it, it is Bryan Singer.
At Number 2: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Until the trailer for The Winter Soldier, I was almost dreading the movie because Captain America set in the modern world is incredibly difficult to pull off, and since he is my favorite character, I did not want to see the character portrayed poorly. However, the trailer took away all of my concerns because it looks amazing! If they follow the original Winter Soldier storyline, film could turn out to be the best of Marvel's Phase 2.
At Number 1: The Hobbit: There and Back Again
Of course I was going to have There and Back Again number one on the list. Since Desolation Smaug will hopefully turn out to be the best movie of last year, I have high hopes that There and Back Again will continue the trend. On a side note, I will hopefully be able to see Desolation of Smaug Thursday and I should have the review ready by next week, so be sure to look for that.
2014 is shaping up to be a fun year with even more geeky movies than last year. Both superhero movies and animated ones are looking to have a great year. Considering that 2013 had no animated movies that I was interested in outside of The Wind Rises and Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion, 2014 looks as though we will be getting the best in animation in a very long time, and Pixar is not even making a movie!
Of the movies that will be released next year, there are at least six that I am definitely seeing in the theater, which are the top six, and a few more like Interstellar, The Lego Movie, and Big Hero 6 that I might watch in the theater if they receive positive reviews. Hopefully 2014 will not disappoint! Below are some honorable mentions: Jupiter Ascending, RoboCop, Maleficent, Edge of Tomorrow, 300: Rise of an Empire, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Divergent, Exodus, The Expendables 3, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,
Pleas note about the honorable mentions, I am not necessarily excited for the movie, but rather how the movie will turn out like the RoboCop and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies because I interested in the property that the movie is based.
