This 5 Fandom Friday prompt is hard for me, because I have to be forced to watch movies.
Not that movies aren’t great, because they are amazing, but because I feel guilty sitting down and paying attention to just one thing for a solid two hours when I’ve got so much going on all the time.
But, with that being said, I still have some movies I look forward to.
Here are mine for 2017.
0.) Split – The reason this doesn’t count on this list is because I’ve got tickets for tonight and I’m already seeing it. Haha. Super excited though!
UPDATE – AMAZING. Go watch it.
1). Guardians of the Galaxy 2 [May 5, 2017] – Believe it or not, I didn’t see the first one until THE OTHER DAY. Not quite sure how I put it off for so long (especially considering how great it was), but like I said- I feel guilty just watching movies. So, judging from the fresh excitement having just the first one, I’m really stoked that there is a second this year! I’ve been told it comes out in May, and I’ve planned some DIYS just in time for the movie’s release. I’ve become a superfan out of nowhere.
2). New/Updated Superhero movies – This is just a category, since there’s several this year, but here they are.
Thor Ragnarok [Nov. 3 2017] – I won’t lie, not sure how I feel about this one, only to say that I know I’m going to see it. As some may know, one of my cosplay characters is Lady Loki, who functions into the timeline around Ragnarok (although I don’t believe she’ll be in it at all). I won’t say I’m stoked to see this, but I know I will be seeing it.
Wonder Woman [June 2, 2017] – I am stoked for this though.
Justice League [Nov 17, 2017] – I’ve got high hopes, and have no reason to feel Marvel will let me down at all.
Logan [Mar 3, 2017] – I’ll be forced by my significant other to watch this one, but I’m also sure I’ll like it.
Spider-Man Homecoming [July 7, 2017] – eeeeeeeeeee. We’ll see. I’m STOKED for Zendaya, but kinda unsure about another spider man movie.
3. STAR WARS Ep. VIII [Dec. 15, 2017] – Not sure why I made this number three?? What the heck. I am stooooooked for this, though. ENough said there.
4. A Cure for Wellness [ Feb. 17, 2017] – Now, for this one, I’m legitimately excited. My friend Marka sent me over the trailer the second she saw it, and we’ve been stoked to go ever since( We’re also stoked to see Rings, which may give insight to the types of movies we like, ha). I may see it opening weekend. I’m a horror fan, as we know. As of now it has a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, which means it could go either way, I guess.
5.) Get Out [Feb 24, 2017] – I [in] love [with] Jordan Peele, and I’m super excited for this movie that he’s directed, especially since it’s horror. I’ve heard some complaints that white people are being made the villain, but that’s like… the entire premise of the movie, so I’d suggest not watching it to those people. I think it’s a very interesting premise that will play both on real social commentary as horror and genuine thriller/horror standard moves (jump-scares, etc.) , and I think combined it will be a great watch.
Honorable Mentions: The Circle [Apr. 28], World War Z 2 [June 9], Amityville: The Awakening [June 30], Alien: Covenant [May 19], Saw: Legacy [Oct. 27 (perfect for Halloween!)
ANNNNNNNNNND that’s where we’re at now. Seeing all those titles makes it look like I’m way more into movies than I am, especially since I probably won’t see everything on this list.
