Rolling Stone had a nice article on some of the 2015 movies coming this way in the fall. This is the time of year when the movie season really kicks into high gear. Yes, I'm looking forward to the new Star Wars movie like everyone else, but there's plenty of other films that look interesting as well.
I read a Netflix friend's review of the movie, Sicario, where he said it was pretty amazing. There's a new Michael Moore film as well, for those into documentaries. I'll admit I like his films, whether they are biased or not. He reminds me of the way Ralph Nader used to be--standing up for the underdog, and shedding light on issues. The Martian, yes, I'm interested. Heck, I'm even curious about the new Steve Jobs movie. Did you happen to catch the Disney two-part documentary that was on PBS the other night? It was really good.
Bridge of Spies--I'm always interested in anything Spielberg creates, even if the subject matter doesn't wow me from the onset. He just knows how to craft a film that's fun to watch. He's one of my favorite directors. Some might think Tom Hanks is a bit washed up. I think there was a time when he was a bit overexposed, but I hardly think he's ready for the retirement home. As long as there's good roles, even at his age, he can carry off a part. Did you ever see Captain Phillips? It was a really good action film.
Crimson Peak by Del Toro, could be really scary, and even it it's not, looks steeped in atmosphere with great set design.
Then there's a new 007 movie. Truth is a new Robert Redford film where he plays Dan Rather. Dan Rather is a Texan, and I always thought he was a good news journalist and anchor. Hopefully that films is well made. Finish out the year with Star Wars, and the final episode to The Hunger Games, and it looks like it's going to be a good year for films.
