Happy New Year folks. It is another year and a new way to start over.
Here are three movies that I am excited about in 2016:
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Here is some info on it. Basically this is back story that will give more info on the others who are fighting the Empire. This group of Rebels plan a mission to steal plans for the Death Star. I am excited to see a live action back story. The animated series of the Clone Wars and such are great but we get to finally see a non-animated movie with more back story of the Star Wars universe. This movie is definitely considered Star Wars canon.
- Ghostbusters: Here is some info on this as well. I am a fan of the Ghostbusters. It is very much a part of my childhood. What is great is that there is a female lead cast with a really great combination of comedienne’s! I am an absolute fan of each actress! Each brings their own take on the parallel character they are playing based upon the original. I am even excited to see Kate McKinnon’s character!
- Finally and without further ado – Independence Day 2: Resurgence. I have been waiting for a sequel – for YEARS!!! Bill Pullman’s Presidential Speech in the original is very moving and really makes you feel American but you really feel the emotion, the strength, and the motivation to ban together as a human race to defeat those aliens. We see in the trailer for the sequel that apparently the aliens come back. Much will need to be explained as to what happened all these years to allow them to resurface. If we look back on the original – a man-made computer virus destroyed them. Is it that simple? Was it that simple? We shall see in 2016.
I am excited for the continuing Marvel series of movies we will see in 2016 such as X-Men and Captain America. I am also curious to see Deadpool.
What I forgot to mention is Dr. Strange. I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch. I admit that I am a Cumberb*&%# for all you fan girls or fan boys. I am especially eager to see how he portays Dr. Strange. This Doctor Strange (2007) animated show was absolutely brilliant. There was so much depth and complexity within the character that it left me in awe.
So, again. Happy New Year.
