For all movie lovers like my self 2014 has been totally another awesome year movie wise. We’ve seen some killer reboots, dazzling sequels and the build up of some possible franchises.
Oh yeah.. We’ve also soon some outrageous story lines, epic leaks and some huge flops as well.
Personally I have still not been able to see some of the titles that made it to my watch list and it kills me to know that the year is fast drawing to an end. Some way some how I am going to find a way to watch all those titles before the year ends. (Yh right!!)
Earlier on this blog, I gave the Top Five movies you should have seen as at August 2014.
Since we are just two months shy of finishing up 2014, I invite yo to take a peak into my top priority watch list.
In no particular order of preference except scheduled release dates, here are my Top Five movies to end 2014 with.
Enjoy the read up and look forward to watching these titles… I would make sure I get reviews for all of these within the first weeks of their releases. (So help me God).
They are all UK release dates because it seems that’s the pattern that Silver Bird Cinemas (Ghana) follows.
1. Interstellar 7th November 2014
A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
I have seen the trailer for this and it looks very promising. I love futuristic Sci-fi movies except that most of them seem too over exaggerated and certainly outrageous. This one was shot on an estimated $ 165,000,000 USD budget so I really have high hopes it won’t disappoint. The title alone is catchy…. Interstellar. (Shivers!!)
2. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 20th November 2014
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
This happens to be the third installment of the franchise and the first part of the final book of The Hunger Games Trilogy. Meaning there is going to be the fourth (final…hopefully) installment of the franchise next year. So far I have personally enjoyed the first two installments and I can’t wait to see how this one goes.
3. Horrible Bosses 2 28th November 2014
Dale, Kurt and Nick decide to start their own business but things don’t go as planned because of a slick investor, prompting the trio to pull off a harebrained and misguided kidnapping scheme.
Lol.. I am laughing just remembering scenes from the prequel … Horrible Bosses. That movie gave me a good laugh and I can only imagine same for this one after seeing the trailer so it’s on my top five. For anyone who appreciates good humor this one is a sure pick for you. Even if you haven’t seen the first one you still have to see this when it’s finally released.
4. The Hobbit: Battle of The Five Armies 12th December 2014
Bilbo and Company are forced to be embraced in a war against an armed flock of combatants and the terrifying Smaug from acquiring a kingdom of treasure and obliterating all of Middle-Earth.
Another very successful franchise… the entire Hobbit Series is set 60years before the happenings of the also very successful Lord of the Rings franchise. This is the final installment in the series and you should have no excuse not to see this epic climax. I am certainly not missing this in 3D.
5. Exodus: Gods and Kings 26th December 2014
The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
This one is another biblical story being re-told. The trailer looks more than appetizing. I only home it doesn’t leave a sour taste in my mouth like Noah did. I am also keen on watching how Aaron Paul plays this role. I am a getting a front row seat to this one. My friend Kwame Anim has promised me a ticket. Lol
OK so there you are…. My TOP FIVE movies to end 2014 with. There are a host of other movies yet to be released before the close of 2014. And yours truly would certainly looking out for those and dropping reviews on them if possible.
Lets end our movie year in style…
