My Most Anticipated Movies of 2014

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Teaser PosterI used this list as reference.

Opening Weekend

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past: The old X-Men meet the new X-Men…with Sentinels? Count me in.
  • The Hobbit: There and Back Again: I have to see this before they split the third movie into three other movies and the universe implodes.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Honestly, I remember very little about this reboot except that the first kiss with Gwen Stacy was awesome. Get some, Spider-Man!
  • Interstellar: Christopher Nolan + Sci Fi = I may not understand it, but I will be there to witness it.
  • Dumb and Dumber To: Please don’t suck. Please, please don’t suck.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: I know nothing about this comic book, and I kind of like that. Apparently they will eventually hang out with the Avengers in a future movie, which I’m pretty sure will make Hawkeye seem even less significant than before.
  • Edge of Tomorrow: This is the idea I wish I had thought of. Alien invasion meets Groundhog Day. Every day, the lead character wakes up on the same morning on the final, unsuccessful attack on the aliens that have taken over the planet. He learns a little more about them until he dies…and then he wakes up again the same day. So, so cool.
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier: I was pleasantly surprised by the first Captain America. I think the director might be different this time around, so hopefully it’s still good.
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: My favorite movie of 2012. I wish I had seen it in the theaters, and I won’t miss out this time.
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2: I absolutely LOVED the first How to Train Your Dragon movie. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

First Week

  • 22 Jump Street: I actually laughed a lot at the first movie, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it the second time around.
  • Veronica Mars: I’ve never seen the show, and I hope the movie is good for people like me. I’m mostly curious because I backed it on Kickstarter.
  • Horrible Bosses 2: Why not? All three of the leads are funny.
  • The Giver: I loved this book when I was younger, and although I’m not sure how they can pull it off, I’d like to see it.
  • Jupiter Ascending: Someday the Wachowskis are going to tap into that Matrix magic again. Will this be the one?
  • Transcendence: Christopher Nolan’s awesome cinematographer’s first film…color me intrigued.
  • The Fault in Our Stars: An absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking, wonderful book. I think it’ll work on the big screen.
  • Bad Words: Jason Bateman finds loophole to participate in elementary spelling bee? Sweet.
  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: This would be higher on my list, but I thought thought the book was terrible, and somehow they’re going to make two movies out of it? I’ll watch them, but I’m not happy about it.

What movies are you most looking forward to seeing in 2014?

  1. I recommend watching the Veronica Mars TV series before watching the movie. You’ll want to know the characters and their history, and also the show is amazingly good.

  2. I could use your opening weekend list as my own, except for Dumb and Dumber To – I hated the first one and didn’t find anything funny in it. I did however (much to my surprise) find 21 Jump Street to be quite funny, so I’m looking forward to 22 Jump Street.

    I’m not sure if I’m more excited for the X-Men or Spiderman. I was really surprised how good the reboot was and the trailer for 2 looks excellent.

    • I’ve been avoiding trailers for it since I know I’m going to see it, but you have me curious–I’ll go check it out right now.

    • Emma: That’s a brilliant title. I just watched the clip, and I love it. I must watch it. Have you asked your husband if he would consider letting you marry Amy AND Paul? It seems like that would be the ideal arrangement for everyone involved. If that happens, I would like to cook for all of you on occasion.

      • I think he’s open to it. But would I have to let him invite his top 2 favorite celebrities to marry us also? Is there a house that could fit all 6 of us? So many questions but this I know: you can absolutely cook for us on occasion. In fact, we could probably hire you to be our live-in chef and board game designer.

        • Well, realistically, it would be more than 6, because Amy Poehler is married to Will Arnett (possibly the best combo ever), and I’m sure some of the other celebrities are to. You might need a bigger house unless you all sleep in one big communal bed (this is starting to sound rather similar to Wanderlust). I’m happy to do the cooking and game designing for you all.
