As 2015 is coming to a close with one of the most anticipated movies of all time (Don’t argue with me! You know it is true!): STAR WARS The Force Awakens (Group Review Coming Soon). But as the year is about to end it makes me think of all the movies that are coming out next year that I want to see, or am going to see against my better judgement. Here are just a few that I am definitely going to see for various reasons.
As most of you know I am a big Wolverine fan, so why wouldn’t I be a Deadpool fan as well. I had major concerns with how they were going to do this movie given how he turned out in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but as Hollywood has come to do ‘Pretend it doesn’t exist and make a new movie’ may actually pay off. If you haven’t seen it yet check out the Red Band trailer on YouTube. (NSFW… duh) Now, I am a big skeptic when it comes to movie trailers but it seems to have captured the greatness that is Wade Wilson and, agree or disagree, I do believe that Ryan Reynolds was the best choice to portray Deadpool. (Oh, hush your ‘hissing’)
Independence Day: Resurgence
I was not surprised when I heard they were making a sequel. I am surprised that it took so long. However, given the premise it does kind of make sense. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman both return in this and I honestly can’t wait to see how this plays out. To help them they have adapted the use of the alien technology they salvaged from the last invasion fleet. There will be a space battle! And it looks like they may actually stand a chance but I am sure it won’t be that simple. Bottom line, I am excited to see this movie.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Yes, the last one was a steaming pile that ruined my childhood but the deciding factor for me to keep down the bile and going to spend my hard earned money to see it is this: Stephen Amell is Casey Jones! That’s right, Oliver Queen has left Star City to go New York to be a Hockey Mask wearing, Hockey stick swinging, April O’Neil saving vigilante …seems to be his calling card and does it with flair. Not only that, since 1985 we will finally get to see Bebop and Rocksteady. Hopefully (on my knees, hands clasped in prayer), it will not be a train wreck. On a side note, Seamus, the Celtic Warrior of WWE is playing rocksteady. So if he performs the Celtic Cross on someone it will make it semi-worth it. Down side, apart from Michael “Explosions” Bay still having a hand in it is Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman. Could they not convince Jeffrey Combs to do it?!
These are just some of the highlights of the big blockbusters that will be coming out in 2016. There is still Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, and many others but these were ones I wanted to touch on specifically. They were at the forefront of my mind. And there will be many reviews following each one. See you next year at the movies.
