Movie Thoughts 9-18-2013

Prisoners opens on Friday.  It looks promising.  Nothing else promising opens this weekend (no to the break dancing movie).  A critic from Variety compared it to Se7en and Mystic River.  So it might be a good movie but it won’t be fun.  Not every movie has to be fun.

Lucas Black has signed a contract that locks him into the Fast and Furious series for 3 movies.  That will make 9 films in the series, if all three films are made.  Wow.  I am not sure what to say.

There might be a World War Z sequel.   Considering all the pre-release publicity of the movie being a train wreck and the cost of the re-shoots, that kind of amazes me.  It amazed me how good the movie was considering  the re-shoots and re-writes. I am willing to watch a sequel if one is made.  Of course if there is not a sequel that could be okay too.

Kelsey Grammer is apparently up for a part in Expendables 3.  That just seems odd.  He might be replacing Nicholas Cage or taking the part that was offered to Nicholas Cage.  Okay, that is pretty odd.   Grammer will be in the 4th Transformers movie as a villain.

sequels in 2014 that I will likely see

  • Amazing Spider-man 2
  • Captain America the Winter Soldier
  • X-Men Days of Future Past
  • Muppets Most Wanted
  • Rio 2 (my nieces and nephew might want to see it)
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2
  • Expendables 3
  • the Hobbit there and back again
  • the Hunger Games Mocking Jay

It occurs to me again that I am not the best person to complain about too many sequels.
