You know that high you get when you’re about to watch a movie? Not the actual high of watching it, but the feeling of being high on a movie before you’re actually high on that movie? Of course you do. This is a list of prescription films aiming to get you high even before rolling the credits.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The most anticipated movie of the year, by far. There’s millions of people helplessy longing for the Star Wars reboot at the hands of the master of all sci-fi reboots, at least for the present generation, the one and only J. J. Abrams (yes, the guy who used Star Trek as a demo to get a Star Wars gig).
Bridge of Spies
Every Steven Spielberg – Tom Hanks combo is expected to become one of the most hyped movies of the year. It’s a rule. Actually, it’s the law.
I’m not a fan of the all Jennifer Lawrence/David O. Russell situation. Actually, my real problem is with O. Russell, I just don’t like his stuff, sorry, world. Yet, any excuse for Robert De Niro movies is a great thing. Besides, I’m starting to develop a soft spot for Jennifer Lawrence, maybe, maybe not. Still haven’t made up my mind, sorry x 2, world.
I Saw The Light
This can go one of two ways: either Tom Hiddleston does a brilliant job playing Hank Williams or he just crashes and burns. Either way sounds pretty fun.
50’s New York? Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara? I smell Oscar bait. Oscar bait is, most times, pretty bearable. Count me in.
Maybe the planets are aligned this time. Maybe he’ll get at least a nomination. I just know I’ve been rooting for Leonardo DiCaprio for way too long. Maybe Alejandro G. Iñárritu will do the trick.
